The owners are fantastic, accommodating, friendly, welcoming and helpful. The rooms are well laid out, perfectly clean and comfortable - and surprisingly quiet even when the motel is full. Our room had a separate living area and bedroom so I could go to bed early and not be disturbed while my husband watched tv. Great value, and we had yummy... More

The owners were so welcoming, and they remembered me from my previous visit, even greeting me by name. It felt like coming home. Frank helped me carry in my many, many bags, and Debra came out to say hello and see how my journeys had been so far. As I was travelling alone this time, they took the time to... More

The owners make the motel. Very clean and well equipped. There is also a quilt shop which my wife enjoyed. Frank was informative and helpful and the free breakfast muffins were an added touch. Frank suggested Dawns early rising sunshine cafe which proved to be a unique experience.

Thanks for the review. I thought we all had a great time. The rest of your group was so extremely complimentary - "I" and "A" told Debra: "This place is perfect", "Thanks so much", "Slept so well", "Didn't hear a sound", "Couldn't be happier" ........ Frank and Debra More

Stayed while traveling from Salmon Arm, BC to Bonners Ferry, ID. We were welcomed by the owners who took good care of us during our stay. The grounds were nicely kept and there was a nice gazebo to relax in. The units are a little older, but the owners have taken good care of the place. The unit we stayed... More

I've been telling people about this motel since I left it a few days ago - just amazing. Frank (owner) brought my luggage in for me, showed me around to the gazebo, and yes, the home-made muffins you will see people raving about on here... they're delicious - and really, who does that, right?? Home-made muffin freshly baked, delivered to... More

The service was above and beyond - Frank actually picked us up and dropped us off at the auto shop. Frank and his wife Debra (who made the quilts on the beds!) could not have been nicer. The bed was comfortable, the room was clean, the water pressure was good, and the location was convenient. All in all, a pleasant... More

We booked rooms at this motel based on Trip Adviser reviews, We were terribly disappointed especially because we were on a road trip with cousins from New Zealand visiting Canada for the first time.

Well… Thanks a lot! You were all smiles when you were here… In your review you stated:>“I suppose it was fine if you were really tight for money as was cheap enough"<. So you are saying that it was “fine” and the price was OK. Hmmmm.... You chose our smallest 2 suites, and then complained that they are small!...... More

The sign going into the motel says "cozy, clean and affordable" And it certainly is. The owner Frank greeted us with an invitation to partake of cherries right off the tree and use of the gazebo. And then he brought delicious muffins to our suite that evening to have with our coffee in the morning!!! The location is also very... More

They make a wonderful muffin....left two in our room. Thank you. Nice place, clean, but only one of the rooms was airconditioned....and that one had a rather saggy bed. and this was in the middle of a heatwave (and the air conditioning hadn't been turned on). Not the most restful night.

Hi Larry, Thanks for the compliments on the muffins, they are very healthy and a nice thing to have with your coffee in the mornings. We don't do it every day. Especially baking in this heat. About the air conditioning, I'm not a big A/C fan - and nor are many of our customers. We don't think it's good for... More
