We had this hotel booked ahead of time but when we got there we decided not to stay there. it's all the worst of motels you can imagine. Dirty, poorly maintained, low class and transients. There were clearly disturbed people walking around the property speaking to themselves, we didn't feel safe and the staff weren't even around to ask any... More

When we checked in the front desk person was very polite.We checked around other places rates and they were all over $100 a night and thats to much if your just passing through town.This place was $70 and was as same as the $100 places.It was clean, comfortable, and quiet.They had big flat screen TV. It look like they did... More

Exhausted from a long drive, I stopped in Merrit for the night. All the hotels were full, but this motel had a room available. I should have kept driving. It wasn't so much the dated,shabby mid 60's decor that bothered me, but the smell was terrible. A combination of old cigarette smoke and cheap air freshener permeated everything. The smoke... More

OK, so we needed a cheap motel for the night as we were traveling across BC. Merritt seemed like the ideal location as we knew we good get lodging, food and gas. I called the motel in advance to ensure that the reception office would still be open when we arrived, and they said it was and they would hold... More

I read the other reviews after i stayed here. Thank Gosh. However, i do see that this place has not been reviewed in almost a year. Perhaps there has either been some serious renovations or there are new owners or both because this place is much better than those reviews, which i do trust were once accurate. We just came...

The first room was very stinky, walked into the room and the first thing I see is saw-dust all over the floor, ( apparently they changed locks that day) I took a look around, and noticed the bed blankets didn't look made, the bathroom had mold around the tub, toilet and floor, but what caught my attention was the silverfish...

We have stayed here off and on for many, many years. The motel has always been clean, beds relatively comfortable and very affordable. It is conveniently located right off the highway yet also close to down town. The towels may be a bit threadbare but the shower is fine and the water is hot and plentiful.Also free Wi Fi!

Glad I didn't.....Got into Merritt This past Saturday afternoon for a weekend of racing. Booked on their website because of the price as Merritt is only 2 hours from home- anything more expensive, I would just drive home after the races and return the next morning. I did not receive an e-mail confirmation but I figured I would try anyhow.... More

Thanks goodness we were here only for a night. One lamp was not working and the lady tried to fix it and still not working. This place needs a major clean up/renovation. Everything there is so old and when we walked in our room, it smelled really musty. The shower was too hot and did not really adjust properly. The... More

We choose this motel simply because it's the cheapest and the only pet friendly motel of the area . Without reading trip advisor's review first, I now regret about my choice VERY MUCH. First of all, the lady in reception didn't welcome you at all, she was rude and cool, she mumbled most of the time and I really did't... More
