The receptionist was nice and trying to be helpful.

I didn't have any problems with cleanliness. The out-dated but slightly charming cabin seemed sufficiently clean. (Note: I am not a clean freak!)

The towels in the bathroom with the semi-functioning shower head were fabulously thick and fluffy ;-)

The bed was THE MOST COMFORTABLE bed I have slept in during 3 months sleeping in hotels.

My big issue was with the quality of the WiFi in the rooms. I don't think the router/ internet installations can handle this many users. Wifi disconnects every 5 minutes and after that takes another 5 minutes to reconnect to it's former not very fast speed.

I'm not tech-savvy in that area, but maybe several routers could fix that problem?

Too bad, if not for the Wifi issue, I would have considered booking here again on my way back....

My daughter and I had a pleasant stay here and a peaceful nights sleep! This motel is clean and very well cared for. The gentleman we checked in with was friendly and kind. The bed was a firm, comfortable mattress and the pillows were new and perfectly supportive. Being up above the river, it was quiet and picturesque. We enjoyed reclining in the chairs our back from our unit, listening to the river and day train as they passed by.

Lytton is a sweet little town with very nice people and everything one could ask for.

Thank you for a wonderful visit!

The Totem offers clean, basic accommodation at a very affordable price. While the property is in need of some TLC, it is clean and it is apparent that the current owners are investing in the property (e.g. new roofs on several cabins). The main home dates to 1912, while the cabins likely date to the 1930s or 1940s. The cabin I was in was actually quite spacious with a queen bed in the main room and then two twins in a separate room. My only 'complaint' is that the owners are using some sort of "air freshener" which I found way to strong and it impeded my sleep. The property itself, on a cliff above the river, is quite lovely and I really enjoyed sitting outside, at a picnic table, on a sunny, warm afternoon, reading my book, as it was incredibly peaceful and the landscape is beautiful.

Neat and clean for the most part. Bathroom sink needed a good cleaning around the down spout. Otherwise, shower was great, bed was comfortable. Adequate kitchen.
Train goes by every ten minutes. . .would bother a light sleeper. Public pool near by.

Room tip: Choose cabin closest to main house if you want a good nights sleep.

We arrived on our motorcycle after a magnificent ride up through BC from Seattle. The little cottage that awaited us was charming. Looks like it has been freshly painted and everything was extremely clean and neat. The owner was very friendly and helpful. We ate a homemade Chinese dinner at the Lytton Hotel and drank some Canadian beer. Coming here is like stepping back in time. The townspeople are very friendly and helpful. The trains roll through and the sound reverberates through the mountains
We walked to the grocery store and purchased a few cold beers to take to the expansive yard on the motel grounds. We sat in Adirondak chairs high above the Fraser River that snakes through the canyon and the huge mountains! It was a peaceful view watching a rainstorm roll through the mountain canyons!
