Had car trouble and pulled off in Kenora at 1am. Selah was completely booked but I was able to get a room for the next day. Love it!! Clean, updated, and the owner is great!! Totally worth the low price. If I'm ever back this way.. I'll stay here again. This was a fantastic place to break down :)

We were so surprised with this motel - the exterior does not do it justice. The prices were so great, the rooms were spacious and comfortable. Everything was very clean and the staff went above and beyond to accomodate. This motel by far surpassed all of our expectations. Whenever we head through Kenora again, this will be our stop!

Recently renovated, which is great. This motel used to be a dump. The new owners are very driven to please and go out of their way to make one feel welcome. Clean room, bathroom, sheets, very comfy bed. Great vibe! Truly a place to pause and rest.Fantastic value for the money.

From the road this was not the primary choice, but I have to say, this motel was an awesome choice. This is a family run motel. The amenities are limited, but the rooms are clean, modern and very comfy. We were only here for the night, but the beds were very comfortable, the staff super friendly and the space very... More

Your response can stay, I'm Shocked, should have let me know immediately , this is unacceptable standards, almost unbelievable .The walls after five years are being muddled and repainted, didn't expect such a busy fall. We are going to start a double checking system to insure our quality standards are upheld. Thanks for caring. More

I recently stayed at this motel with my boyfriend while he was working in Kenora. The room was cozy and very clean. The bed was right comfy, and the shower actually had pressure unlike some big name hotels I have stayed at before. The staff are super friendly and helpful. I would totally recommend this to friends and family.

If you can find this motel in less than a half hour you will be doing good. When I was going coming into town I called to get some directions...no answer at 4 pm! Tried several times -- no answer during typical check in time. Finally found it. Office was closed. Sign on door saying "full" but not a car... More

So So Sorry to hear you had a bad experience,but so relieved, that the state of your room was excellent. Hard to find the motel, yes I agree I have had to direct people keeping them on the phone. The downtown area is under construction which the GPS puts us in the bush. Tried to fix several times. I'm the... More

My husband and I spent four nights in the Selah Motel. The room was cleaned very well each day. We had a comfortable stay and the price was very affordable. I would definitely stay in the Selah Motel the next time we travel to Kenora.
