We were only in Vernon for 1 night, as we were travelling around BC on vacation. I saw this place has good ratings, and it should teach everyone not to judge a book by its cover. A lot of motels may appear dated from the outside, but this was clean and spacious on the inside for the price we paid.... More

Nicely run motel. We planned a last minute visit to the Okanagan. It had a well supplied kitchen, nice balcony and pool. I was told that it's been recently refreshed. Friendly and helpful staff. Walking distance to restaurants and coffee shops. I'd stay again. We had a great stay in Vernon, which was quite affordable compared to some other towns... More

We ended up at the Schell hotel after planning a spur of the moment trip to Vernon. Hotel is perfect for people who just want a super comfy bed and great shower and great location. We had originally purchased a cheap room from a large booking site but as soon as we arrived, we realized the room was on the... More

We stayed here for two nights with our 100lb dog. The price was amazing and they actually allowed our large dog which most places wouldn't. The AC was great in the unit. We also had a microwave and mini fridge which came in handy. The only negative would be that our room window didn't have a screen, so we couldn't... More

First glance of this Two-star, low budget motel made me doubtful. It is very tired looking, dated and needing paint and a clean up. However, I was pleasantly surprised with my stay at this great location motel. The motel has a fairly large pool and small hot tub in the back that is quite private because it is treed on... More

This is the second time I have stayed at this motel and it is lovely. The pool is heated and there is a nice hot tub next to it. The Senior rate is also quite reasonable. Located within walking distance of the downtown core, it convenient. I like this place.

We have stayed there many times but this time we took a one bedroom with kitchen, overlooking the pool, it was nice to have a sofa and a kitchen. The staff is always very helpful and friendly, we really like the location, nice to be downtown and able to walk to everything we are there for.

I felt this hotel offered us good value as all we really needed was a bed to sleep in. It's an older hotel but was clean and well-cared for. I chuckled when I saw the world's cheapest bathroom supplies (shampoo & soap) lovingly wrapped in the facecloth. Pack your own shampoo! The grocery store is right across the street, with... More
