“Perfection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

What a beautifull hotel, truely five star in a great location in Creston. This is one of the nicest hotels that I have ever stayed at. Everything from the staff to the rooms is top self. Breakfast was plentiful and a great value for anyone travelling with a family. I would definately stay and recommed this hotel to anyone. Restraunt next door is also great with a nice lounge. Only complaint is that there is no pool or hot tub.

Everything about this hotel was clean, bright, and comfortable. The staff were very friendly, and able to give great recommendations for dinner. If you're in the area, and looking for a hotel that will exceed your expectations, stay at the Ramada in Creston!

Stayed here on September 30th for one night. Brand new hotel and the room spelled fresh and brand new. Beds very soft and comfortable. Breakfast area large with plenty of tables and chairs. Typical breakfast, but nice to have a bite to eat before heading out. Liked the fact that hotel is pet and smoke free too!. Ricki's Bar and Grill in the same parking lot so that is handy and the food was good and reasonably priced. Next time we stay we will ask for a room facing the back of hotel as we like to sleep with window open and found the highway a bit noisy.

As other reviewers have said, this is a beautiful, brand new hotel. Everything is spotless and works perfectly.The decor is modern, tasteful and comfortable - even the hotel art, photographs of the local area, is attractive.

I think this hotel is more reasonably priced and a better value than similar hotels in Cranbrook or Kimberley. I'd recommend reservations - the standard rooms were all booked when we arrived at 3:00 pm on a Tuesday in late September. We were going to take a King room but the kind manager, Kerry Hobbs, upgraded us to a King Suite. It was lovely and very much appreciated.

The location is great. It's perfect for a stopover before or after driving the Kootenay Pass or the taking the Kootenay Lake ferry from Crawford Bay.

The things I especially liked were
- the bathtub is deep enough to soak in
- the bed was very comfortable with a nice duvet and linens
- the bathroom vanity had more than enough space for a man's toiletries and a woman's make-up, etc.
- the coffee supplied for the in-room coffee maker was above average
- the WIFI speed is very good. There are also two PC's available in the Business Center.
- there's virtually no traffic noise in the room once it's dark outside. Both highway 3 and 3A are somewhat difficult to drive at night so traffic tends to stop when it's dark. Unlike Cranbrook, there's little train traffic, either. We had a room that faced the highway and didn't hear any traffic at night.
- the flat screen TV had a good picture and the cable TV channels included TCM, Turner Classic Movies.
- the restaurant at the hotel's doorstep, Ricky's All Day Grill, makes surprisingly good food for a restaurant chain and it's convenient. After a long drive you can get a decent meal without leaving the hotel.

This is one of the nicest Hotels I have ever stayed in. It does not seem to have been open long, but their attention to detail is amazing. The rooms are large and bright and have a fridge and a microwave and I wanted to take the mattress home with me it was so comfortable! The staff were all very nice and so helpful giving information on the surrounding area and what to see and do. Creston seemed so small, but we could of stayed longer as there was so much to do. The breakfast was good too and set us up for the day. We will be back to Creston it's a hidden gem!

Room Tip: We had a front facing room and could see the skimmerhorn mountains.

The hotel is beautiful and our room was no exception but I ended up at the Skimmerhorn Motel because the air quality in my room caused dizziness, headache and nasal congestion. I am allergic to air fresheners and I was told that the rooms are sprayed with air freshener each day. They ionized my room and left windows open before I arrived but I still had an allergic reaction and had to leave. We suspect it may have been the chemicals in the new carpeting that caused the allergic reaction. The staff was very apologetic and we were not charged for the room.

I wish hotels would use hypoallergenic cleaners and no scented sprays. It would be healthier for all.

Room Tip: If you have breathing issues or allergies, this may not be a good choice for you. Head to the Skimm...

Stayed here for 5 nights this past week.  Very nice with all the modern amenities you'd want in a hotel when travelling on business.  Also nice for pleasure travel too.  Rooms are spacious, bright and well appointed with pleasant modern decor.  All room also include a fridge and microwave which is nice and convenient, especially when you're staying in a smaller town.  WiFi is free and very decent in performance.  There is also a bright and spacious gym and an on site restaurant & lounge called Ricky's (spinach salad with blackened chicken was excellent).  Creston was way overdue for a nice new hotel (the average hotel in town aging at least 30 years).  Will definitely stay again when in town on my next business trip.  Only minor negative comment is that over the 5 nights I stayed there, housekeeping didn't once replenish the bath soap.  Had to leave a note asking for them to leave some.  Otherwise a very pleasant stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the back. Very nice and quiet with mountain views.
