We enjoyed a great stay vacation after my husband came out of hospital. We had a queen suite over looking the pool. The room was furnished with a very comfortable bed. The location was perfect for morning and evening walks. The pool was cleaned every day and provided a great opportunity to cool down.

Great spot! Rooms overlook a pool surrounded by trees and a babbling brook, so you forget you are downtown until you get hungry or bored - then you discover you are just steps away from all kinds of good eats, a classic old-style movie theatre, interesting shops and pubs (when did downtown Vernon become so hip?) We stayed in a... More

I have stayed at the Schell Motel many times when I am in Vernon on business. It is very central and because I am usually in town for several days, the suites are convenient and also inexpensive. And recently they have made several welcome upgrades - new towels (very nice!), new air conditioners, some new furniture and new locks on... More

We played tourist in our own town, so stayed one night in a queen suite (the one featured in the photo just behind the patio set with umbrella. The room had a separate bedroom with a patio door opening to the balcony overlooking the pool/hot tub. The living room/dining/kitchen was great for doing some work using the free wi-fi. The... More

I stayed in a suite at this hotel and it was lovely. There was a balcony overlooking the pool and a roomie living room dining room and well-equipped kitchen. The best thing about this hotel is that it is situated on a Main Street and close to great restaurants and shoppers

WIFI didn't work, shady front -end and clientel- hooker motel. Oh, you want more... the staff didn't give give a crap, even though they knew beforehand that I was disabled, no care or concern was given to me about my needs- like plugging in the clock-radio and setting the time- which I can not do myself, was a chore to...

Last year I gave the Schell a pretty good review - this year after staying for 5 days there I'm giving it a terrible review. It's gone very swiftly downhill - it's now a run down dump. Upon arriving for our reservation made several months ahead we were advised that they no longer had Breakfast - I was in contact... More

Family stayed for a wedding and was locked out of their room because they "assumed" since it was so clean they left! Put a mother with new baby and 2 children out at night time and didn't offer to pay for new room! Unacceptable customer service! Will be reporting to better business bureau!

Location - great location, across from a grocery store (with a Starbucks) and walking distance to downtown and Polson Park. Surrounding Area - there was enough in... More
