The Totem Motel is excellent value in the little town of Lytton where the Fraser and Thompson rivers come together. The small cabins are quaint but spotlessly clean and well equipped. Trains clinging to the sides of the Fraser gorge go past on both sides of the town and are a truly fascinating sight - the noise was tolerable but... More

This motel is located very close to the railway tracks (as almost all of the small town). Trains kept going until after midnight and were very loud. The beds were not really comfortable. The rooms were clean overall. Wifi is not included. Rooms are located in small separate apartments and are equipped with a little kitchen and a bathroom. Because... More

Check-in was friendly. The little cottages were very quaint, with a nice view out back. The room was simple, but clean. The only downside was the lack of internet, which I needed to get some work done. The front desk was helpful as they could be, but even after a few "sign on codes" I never did get internet access,...

Totem Motel Lytton B.C Canada 250-455-2321. On a motorcycle trip we stayed at the Totem Motel over night Ulli the owner was very pleasant and helpful even supplied soap and towels to clean our 3 motorcycle. Spotless and comfortable, reasonable priced accommodation with swimming pool next door. If you’re looking for accommodation in Lytton I would recommend this motel for... More

If you like the trains, this place is a MUST! The propietors are most friendly, and the invidual cottages are roomy and spotlessly clean. The inn, once a former post office is set in a charming street. Within 50 metres of the motel is the Canadian Pacific railway, and running high along a shelf on the other side, some 150... More

There really isn't much to choose from in Lytton. These units are clean, and the lawn which looks over the Fraser gives a great view. Yes, there are train tracks below (and above the town as well) - but that's Lytton. I think that the charging for internet is a little cheap, however - given that it's free with virtually... More

We last stayed at this motel about 11 years ago. We were going river rafting then as we were doing this time. The place seems to be frozen in time and I would be hard pressed to find anything that had changed over this span of time. It is the best place in town but then you need to see... More

I recently stayed at the Totem Motel in Lytton. It is the best place in town with very friendly owners. I cooked all my own meals which was perfect for me. The cottages are somewhat dated but very clean.

Basic motel that needs updating, but is clean, safe, and has all amenities needed. The location is great. There is a nice grassy area behind the buildings overlooking the Fraser River. Our suite had a living room area, kitchenette, bathroom, and small bedroom. The furnishing was very dated - it felt like a bit of a time warp, but everything... More

The totem motel is on a street parallel to the railway and main street at the front, and river at the back. It is next door but one to the tourist information centre and a few houses away from the musem. Accommodation is in little wooden chalets. In the two bedroom unit there is a very small double bedroom (we... More
