I don't understand some of the reviews I have read about this little gem in Salmo. Yes it is not a FIVE STAR motel but guess what there are no five star motel or hotels anywhere in this area. The owners and the new management have worked very hard to make this a very pleasant place to stay at. The... More

We stayed in Room 6 as we were in Salmo for a family funeral. We travel quite a bit and have stayed in quite a few low end rooms similar to this one. We have learned to expect a certain quality of room depending on the price. We felt this room was over priced at $79 (we only paid $69... More

This day and age wifi should be throughout all hotels. Apparently the signal is stronger closer to the office. Room is clean and cozy. Bathroom is tiny. Proximity to town centre is good. I would stay here again if i knew i could get stronger internet. Friendly staff.

We stayed there in August on our way to Nelson. had it chosen because of reviews and price which is not that cheap BTW. While staff Alex was very friendly and helpful but there's only this much he can do. Wi-Fi is extremely slow. Motel is pretty much on major route and it gets noisy early in the morning. room...

Service was really friendly and motel manager was always available and friendly. Rooms were very clean, with kitchenettes... Great for overnight traveling. BBQ is small, but good for two steaks. Grounds are very well kept, with lots of patio tables around to relax. WiFi was almost non existent though... They need to boost it.. If you needed it.. you had... More

Due to the Kootenay Pass being closed unexpectedly due to a snowstorm, I decided to stay in Salmo instead of going those extra km's back into Nelson. Glad I did. Alex was indeed a gem; the room was clean and the bed comfy. I enjoyed the mini-clawfoot tub. I wandered down the street for a couple pints at the Salmo... More

Last week, we spent two pleasant nights at the Reno Motel in Salmo, B.C. We chose the spot because we had found it quite nice on a visit last year. Although under new ownership, we found the same hospitality, comfort and good prices of our previous visit. Alex, the new host, is a gem. He got us situated easily, provided... More

I recently had to evacuate in the middle of the night, with 7 dogs from my dog boarding, they were very kind and accommodated me and the dogs - even though I arrived late. Helping hands in an emergency are always appreciated. The motel is clean and comfortable, centrally located if you are visiting the area.

The owners are warm, gracious hosts. Our room was clean, spacious, and the bed comfortable. I did have a problem with the bedding--the sheets were too perfumed. They may need to change or eliminate the fabric softener. We enjoyed the outdoor picnic area and appreciated being provided with locked, indoor bike storage.

After traveling for 8 hours I found this motel to be perfect for my daughter and I. The room was extreemly clean, and I am very picky as I have been a housekeeper for many years now. The owners were so helpful, they helped refresh my memory of where things were in Salmo, as I had lived here when I... More
