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

Every time we travel through Vernon, we stop at Ed's and Chit's place, because they take care off you. If you are looking for customer service excellence, you will find it here for a very reasonable price and a great sleep to go with it. Plenty of parking, free Wi-Fi, and enough tv channels to keep you interested. Conveniently located... More

I have stayed at the Journey Inn at least 10 times. I have family there in Vernon and my parents have stayed there as well.

Way overpriced for this truck driver's hotel. Old decor from the 80's that has not been updated. Old wall paper and tacky decor. Wouldn't have minded if the price had matched the facility. I would shop around.

When I book a motel what I really want is a clean room and quiet surroundings and the Travelodge delivers on both. The rooms are dated, but spotless. We had a room with two queen beds.The beds are very soft and the bottom sheet is not fitted so it comes untucked during the night. Our room did not have a... More
