We found this motel to be very clean, quiet, and affordable. Surprisingly for a small town motel this was very well run. Towels were of high standards and room was pretty large and bathroom had smoldering hot water. There is ample parking space. Unlike motels with common open hallway, this motel was more on the line of regular hotels having hallway with rooms on either side.
We found this hotel through BC Accommodations, as it was not listed in any of the major portals like Expedia, Booking.com etc. Unlike almost all hotels that we booked online during our BC trip, this was the first and only hotel that I had to book by calling the hotel. When I did not seem to accept the price, the manager immediately lowered the price by $10. Therefore, don't hesitate to bargain. Since, we did not have many options, we decided to take this offer, but wondering how good the motel will be; and we were pleasantly surprised with the service. BTW, they also charge your entire stay upfront unlike at the time of checking out. The hotel is run by a Chinese Canadian couple.
They provide free wi-fi, but the network and speed was at best very spotty. If you plan to access internet a lot or stream Netflix, you might be better off having 3G on your mobile device. At least cell reception is pretty good even in that small town. They also provide free coffee during early hours of the day in the lobby. Overall, very good experience.
