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!

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
