Spent a few days there in July 2014 while visiting Vernon. This is an old Travel Lodge. The owners changed the name and it is a fine place to stay. It is not fancy or refurbished but clean and quiet. The owners are great and will try to accommodate your requests. They also give a discount to military service people... More

Found this hotel on Trip Advisor and the reviews were bang on! Room was spotless, quiet, comfortable beds and centrally located to restaurants for evening meals and breakfast. The place is older but well maintained. The front desk staff were friendly and helpful in recommending restaurants to go to for dinner and breakfast. Both recommendations were great! The room had...

I visited Kelowna on business and decided to stay at the Journey Inn as it had good reviews and the price was reasonable. On both counts I was pleased to stay there. The motel is an older cinderblock style and this makes it very solid. Although it is located in the downtown, it was quiet and secure. The room was... More

The owners are very helpful. They keep the parking lot and grounds very clean. The motel is quiet and in the heart of downtown. The bathroom was so old that it probably couldn't be cleaned. There were black mold stains and it smelled musty. I wore my flip flops in the shower.

It is an older property, but the resident managers, Ed and Chit, make us so welcome. The pool was heavenly! Journey Inn is close to downtown. I stay here every time I am in Vernon. Great value and clean.

Chose this hotel based on reviews and was not disappointed. Although the hotel is a bit dated it was very clean and well maintained and rooms are a good size. Everything worked. Air conditioning a bit loud but kept the room very comfortable for sleeping. Beds were comfortable with the best pillow I have ever had when travelling. Plenty of... More

Older hotel that is very well-maintained. Owner lives on site and provides top-notch service. He offered to set-up a playpen for us when he found out we were travelling with an infant. Great for travelling with pets due to outside entrances. Highly recommend this place for good value.

Obviously not 5 star Wynn hotel in Vegas, but 5 star in our minds. The rooms were dated, but clean and comfortable and affordable. Within walking distance to many great restaurants in downtown Vernon. And literally, only a short 5 minute drive to kalamalka beach. We had zero complaints. Owners, Ed and Rosario were fantastic. Very accommodating. We requested an... More

Stayed one night. Owners are friendly and the place is clean and well maintained. Central location with lots of parking. The bed is comfortable and not too noisy for sleeping. Decent TV and has an air con. Really the only complaint I have is the smell of cigarette smoke.
