We were actually looking for a different motel that we somehow couldn't find so we ended up booking a room here. We had a single queen room and it was clean and the bed was very comfortable. The motel is on the main road but we didn't hear traffic at all. The shower was excellent...lots of hot water and good... More

We arrived late one night and pulled in. Rooms were older but comfortable, clean and did the trick for the night. Wifi connection was good! The free breakfast was coffee/juice, cereal, toasted waffles, toast and fruit. It was adequate and we drove away happily! Staff were friendly and courteous! I'd recommend others to stay. 😀

The man at the front desk was very nice! He upgraded us to a king bed for an extra $5.00 which was awesome!! Very clean bathroom lol I could smell the bleach! Continental breakfast was very typical but satisfying the bananas were awesome! I would 100% stay here again!

This is a privately owned motel with what appeared to be a lot of repeat guests. It was clean and comfortable with a decent high season price. We had a fabulous sleep in a king bed. Don't expect anything fancy and you won't be disappointed, i.e. curtains, bedspread, etc. don't match but who cares. Although motel is on the highway,... More

Well, you know how it is: you've packed your bag, loaded the dog, squeezed everything but the kitchen sink into the truck for the annual trip to wherever, driven for hours, only to find out that the reservation you made MONTHS ago, at the place you ALWAYS stay at, has somehow been changed to something, utterly, unacceptable. Well, that was... More

We stay here whenever we go to Cranbrook - probably five times in the last 15 years. There are a fair number of rules, but these are not unreasonable. The beds are GREAT, the bathrooms clean, and the neighbours quiet. Breakfast is a little limited, but there is fruit and oatmeal. Note that many other guests are on first name... More

Checked in to a cheery, helpful man. Room was clean, had a bit of a musty/old smell but nothing a bit of Febreeze couldn't fix. Chairs had big spill stains on them. We stayed in the end room and it was relatively quiet. Woman at front was very upfront. It was Monday morning, the end of the long weekend, my... More

In response to this review, the room was reserved in advance for noon check in for folks (who needed to get ready for a funeral at 1 - it was a kitchenette room as they requested, we had no others available). I called the room, explained we had a reservation for that room at noon (check out is 11am -... More

Very clean and comfortable rooms just like a 5 star hotel. Very accommodating. Randy and his wife very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our stay at this Inn. We would recommend this Inn to anyone and we are sure to return the next time we are in B.C.

This motel, as other reviewers suggest, is an old-school motel not a chain. But I like to stay at these when I can and would stay again at this one. Clean and reasonably priced. Close to restaurants (recommend ABC) and other stores (e.g. Walmart). Room was small but clean and comfortable. The breakfast was free but limited. Coffee was not... More

We came without reservation as our other hotel kicked us out for having a pet even though we specified a pet-friendly room. This place was welcoming and pet friendly and the room had everything we needed with a complimentary breakfast and good value for the room. Walk in rooms from our car were great for our dog! Will definitely stay... More
