3 of 5 stars Reviewed 5 days ago NEW

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.

Stayed in Vernon while in transit to a backcountry ski lodge in the Monashees. Nice little motel situated within walking distance of downtown. Easy to access from either highway 97 or highway 6. The owners are very pleasant, they provided us with many options for dinner allowing us choice in what we ate. The room was clean, everything worked and... More
