Come and stay at our little oasis in the center of Castlegar. Our Motel features economical salesman/sleeping suites as well as full kitchen suites. All of our beds have home made quilts and our More Park and Gazebo with a gas BBQ is very popular meeting/gathering place for guests. You won't find cleaner or cozier accommodations anywhere. Less
