Purpose of our trip - we were in town for a weekend and there was a large hockey tournament and a large soccer tournament the same weekend so most hotels/motels were sold out. 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

I stayed with my 2 kids and father for an evening in 2 separate rooms. Both were very clean with lots of updates (windows, furniture). It is an older place but they seem to be making improvements! The staff was very friendly and helpful and the rooms were extremely affordable!

Room 108, I was surprised by the room when I walked in as it was well laid out and had most of the stuff more expensive rooms have. The bed was comfortable, the room was warm and had space around the bed. There was a desk in a small alcove, but the plug outlet was on the other side of... More

I maybe a bit harsh but you need to know. Breakfast (free) provides a very basic meal. The beds are soft and my room was clean (other from our group weren't) In need of an upgrade. Good location to the Schubert center (walk across the street). All i can say is its better than nothing.

I stayed at the Schell Motel for 4 days. I was in Vernon to attend my 50-year high-school reunion and there were several of us staying there. We chose the Schell because it was just across the street from where our function was being held. The motel is clean, the beds are wonderful - all new. I had a little... More

another motel owned presently by people who seem to know nothing about the hospitality biz... and probably don't care. I used to live in town in summers and only came back to visit an aging , ill friend (who lives close by) and retrieve some of my property in storage. There must be 20 brand names within less than a... More

We checked into this little motel late on our way through Vernon. We didn't expect too much - it isn't fancy which was fine - it was only one night. However, we do expect accommodation to be clean. And this place is NOT. The towels even had mascara on them and didn't appear to have even been washed. The bathroom... More

The room we were assigned was super small and so so clean. The motel location is downtown and within walking distance of good eateries. The room was small enough that it didn't even have space for a chair let alone a table. I had to use the ironing board from the room to set up my lap top computer on.... More

While passing through the Okanagan a year ago, we stayed one night and chose this property again because it is a few blocks off the main highway, quiet, reasonable priced, and the pool was warm. This time the pool was so cold and I could only stand being in it for five minutes. The bathroom was unclean, specifically the bathtub,... More

We stayed here because we wanted a room near downtown. The room was tired and not overly clean. It smelled like old smoke even though it was non smoking. Would not stay here again. It's only value us central location.
