Never had som much trouble, or took so much time, to make a reservation when I tried through ReservationDesk.com which comes up when you are looking to make a reservation. I finally gave up and called the hotel directly and got much better service, and I could understand the person speaking to me as well.

Normally we stay at Hotels so I was a bit suspect of this sprawling Motel. Glad we committed. Terry (the Check-in fellow) was friendly. The rooms were a good size, spotlessly clean and had a nice colour scheme with real hardwood. The beds were comfortable and there was ample parking. The only disappointment was that due to having too few... More

I have stayed in Creston several times, but never at the Magnusson. On my most recent trip, the hotel I normally stayed at was closed and the Magnusson offered itself up for my inspection. THANK YOU It was a great night and I did enjoy the location, being that it is nearer to the residential part of Creston. It was... More

Inauspicious looking place from the outside turned out to be a gem from within. Basic motel configuration around a central courtyard. Rooms were large, comfortable and very clean and neat. Quite a number of commercial vehicles here suggesting that it has a good reputation. My room was excellent. The associated Thai restaurant was a delightful bonus. Food was delightful and... More

The building seemed old but looks like it's been knewly renovated. The staff was friendly and helpful. One queen room where we'd stayed in was very clean and I was very comfortable. Loved stay at this hotel. Especially hardwood floor, wall hanging TV, Keurig coffee maker and good wifi signal. Truly a hidden gem in the kootenay region, worth the... More

We often travel through Creston and love to stop at the great Thai Restaurant located in the same building as this motel. It is run by a different owner than the motel. We arrived one Monday afternoon at the reception area and I asked the two men at the front desk if the restaurant was open as we always look... More

We have stayed in this hotel numerous times when it was under previous ownership. The renovations were nice. My only negative comment would be the lighting. It is quite dark in the room and bathroom with the lights on. The staff and the owner who we chatted with on our last morning were all very friendly and accommodating. We were... More

This is not a lavish motel but the upgrades are noticeable and appreciated. The room was clean and comfortable; I like the laminate flooring verses a carpet. The keurig coffee maker is a nice little convenience and the restaurant attached to the hotel served excellent food.
