“Great overnight”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2010

We were on our way to Abbotsford Air show-- really enjoyed the hotel. Rooms around indoor "atrium" pool was fun. Wasn't the great "neighborhood" - ie: truck stops/gas stations..but we drove under 10 minutes and were at many great restaurants. Atrium restaurant would have been like eating inside a sauna, so we decided against it. Would stay there again if just for an overnight for sure. Clean rooms, nice bed linens, and air conditioner actually worked!

Thank you for your recent review. I do have to agree, When the temperature like this summer remains in the mid 30's for a period, Our Atrium does retain the heat, Our plants like it but it is tough on the restaurant. i was happy to read that you enjoyed the room and the air conditioning worked to your satisfaction and helped with the warm weather. All our rooms were completely redone in November 2008. Kevin Wood, General Manager

while staying at this hotel for our daughters wedding we were robbed,
somebody ,got into our room while we were at our daughters wedding dance.
they took absolutely everything including all our toiletries and our winter clothes
jewellry,suitcases etc,
the hotel had no security cameras that were working and it sure seemed like an inside job
how did they know when we were gone
the hotel did nothing to help us out at all
it was like they did not care
i would tell anyone i know to not stay there ever

I would like to first apologize to this person again for the very unfortunate circumstances during their stay. Our security cameras were not able to capture anything that was helpful to the police based on information provided and our lock reports showed nothing unsusal but normal guest key activity. Unfortunately it does not show us if the lock was at anytime was left unlocked. A incident and later posting like this is very difficult on both parties, but does not mention how we tried to help in a difficult situation by supplying coats, so it would be more comfortable on the flight back. Nor do we ever want to see our guests have any hardships. Kevin Wood, General Manager

This is an older motel (1980's) and shows that from the fixtures in the rooms and the decor, but don't let that put you off. That vintage gives you nice, large rooms, a central courtyard with a nice pool and a good restaurant. The rooms are immaculate with new flat screen TV's and all the extras you'll require. And they're big and quiet!! Nice to not feel like you're stuffed into a jar.
The location right off of the highway is great, easy to get to and leave from.

Thanks so much for your kind review. You are correct, we opened for business in 1986 and still hear from guests that have never been here that they had no idea that our interior tropical garden was so beautiful. It does still have a retro feel, but all the rooms were completely redone in late 2008,and we just completed a renovation of our Ballrom and Conference Center and look forward to starting on our restaurants soon and I do appreciate your comment on the large rooms, something that we have always been proud of.
Hope we see you again soon !

This is the first time we've stayed at this motel. We chose it because it was $20.00 per night less than comparable motels in the vicinity. It was clean and orderly, and the staff efficient. The room was cookie cutter, clean, efficient, and adequately supplied. The beds were comfortable and we had a good night's sleep. We were a late arrival and early departure, but we saw that it had facilities which would make it a nice place to stay if you were going to spend several days in the area. It does not provide a breakfast with the cost of the room, but allows $3.50 pp off the price of a breakfast in their restaurant. The only drawback was my wife walks with a cane, our room was on the second level, and there is no elevator. You also need a car if you want anything not supplied by the motel - the only eating place within walking distance is a Tim Hortons.

Thank you and I appreciate your comments. I am sorry that we were not able to accommodate you on the 1st floor to avoide the stairs. We have been discussing the addition of a small elevator so this would not be a problem in the future.

Stayed here on the way through the area. Access was easy and it was easy to find. I liked that the entry, the halls, and the rooms are very large with plenty of room. The bed was fine and everything worked fine. The only downside is that it is quite evident that they used cheap products in the building. The floor had squeaks, the bathroom fixtures seemed like plastic, the window screen was broken, etc. I did not try out the restaurant or any other part of the place.

Doesn't look much from the outside, but when you enter the atrium WOW! Big internal garden, pool and spa, restaurant, bar and it's warm which is nice in the colder months in BC. Room was clean, warm and comfortable. The bed was massive and im 6"3. JD Lounge makes a great Ceasar and Bill and Kenny are great barmen. Friendly and always up for a chat. The Coffee Mill has great food for good price. Burger and fries was great with great service to boot. The atrium had a great buffet breakfast that cured the hangover and fueled me for another days travel. Will be sure to stay when I next come through.

We have often been called Chilliwack Hidden Treasure !
We are located with very easy access from the Trans Canada and accross the Highway from Chilliwack Heritage Park. In the winter months many people choose to stay here rather than driving through the Mountain passes at night.
In the summer Chilliwack has great lakes, fishing in the Fraser River, golfing, hiking and other outdoor activities perfect for the entire family.
Thank you very much for your kind comments about our hotel and staff.
