“Excellent price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

I came in late with no reservation on a very busy weekend. The staff accommodated my son and myself with a price matched by Expedia. We appreciated the comfy beds and big rooms. The bathrooms need a little work as the toilet paper holder was missing. The only thing we noticed was that the only restaurant open at 11 pm was Boston Pizza which was quite a distance away.

Room Tip: The parking lot on the ground floor is tight for space, but it beats taking luggage up the stairs. R...

It makes us happy to hear that the staff was able to accommodate you on short notice due to almost being full and the price was right. We do our best to price match. We are also glad you found the beds very comfortable. We are sorry about the toilet roll holder and thank you for letting us know and this matter has been brought up to our maintenance department. It is also a shame you had to drive a distance for a bite to eat. For future reference we have a 24 hour McDonalds 1/2 a block away. We appreciate your feedback and hope to see you soon.

The room was a bit small than expected. No microwave and had to go to the office to use it. Service was poor from the moment of reservation to the time to check out. Had to wait the whole day and had to call seven times just to get the reservation confirmation emailed. The gentleman at the front desk upon arrival was polite and helpful but the lady on the next day was unfriendly and cold. Overall, wasn't much of a pleasant stay.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

We have stayed here near a dozen weekends over the last year because the Vedder offers something that's hard to find. And that's a wheelchair accesable suite with all the fixings. Like a roll in shower with the correct plumbing, proper wall bars around a raised toilet, recessed vanity and enough space. The rooms are fairly spartan, but that helps us as laminate floors in the travel areas are better than carpet. To top it off, they put the bed on rails rather than the standard box so that the legs of the portable person lift ( to transfer from wheelchair to bed) would roll under the bed. Sure, some of the extra amenities found in higher end motels are missing, but then the price is right, so we are getting value and good service.

The Vedder presents nicely with good landscaping and nice looking rooms. My room was clean and had plenty of space. However, the lighting was very dim. I wasn't able to find Kleenex in the room so had to make do with toilet tissue or run to the car to get my own tissue. Breakfast was not included. There are restaurants in the area, though. There was some confusion about price when booking because the on-line rate wasn't stated clearly and differed significantly from the rate quoted by Vedder over the phone.

We stayed two nights here so we got a good feel for the rooms, staff, and location. First of all the staff was great at the both check in and check out. There is no restaurant to eat at but the hotel does offer discounts at two places just a short walk away. They did offer coffee and fruit in the morning. The rooms were clean and nicely updated. the heated bathroom floor was a nice touch. The only drawback was the walls were thin and you could hear talking and foot steps from above. Also the first night a group of teenagers were there and they were very noisy. All in all a nice place to stay.

I travel extensively throughout North America for sales and have stayed at a plethora of hotels. Some great and some horrific. There are really only 3 things that make a hotel room good in my book. 1. Bed - it has to be comfy and clean 2. Room - is it in shambles? does the heat/AC work?
3. Internet - is it fast and reliable?

Vedder River Inn met all three of my criteria and then continued to wow me.
Not only was their front desk staff friendly and accommodating, but they also had a 2 computer business center in the lobby with a nice 3 in 1 printer!

Not bad for $75/nt!

I would definately stay here again and would recommend this to all.

Room Tip: Ask for a ground floor if you don't want to walk up some stairs, but ask for a top floor if you...

Room was nice and clean plus a good size for the 2 of us. Bed was very comfortable and our room also had a tv and fridge. Bathroom was a good size with a shower and clean towels. One thing I would say is the room lacks character, maybe a bit of colour. The only thing is that in the night the fridge did seem loud which woke me up a couple of times. Staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was included but it is only mainly a coffee and a muffin. Close to shops and restuarants.

Room Tip: We had a room on the second level which was quite, the only time you heard someone was when they wal...
