We stayed three nights here while enjoying the annual festival and other than not being used to a harder bed than I like, it was a great stay! Close to all amenities, which is a bonus. Very accommodating owners and a very clean place. Would stay again.

Thank you for your time and review! Our motel offers senior's rate which attracts some seniors who just need the basic and clean rooms,But sometimes they don't show up the right time because of the mistakes or other good reasons, So we won't charge the cost until the guests check in if they book the room via phone or email. I am glad you could book somewhere else the other day and enjoyed your golf. Welcome back to Castlegar again!

Thank you for your time! Your review is so encouraging! I appreciated it very much! Being old means history, this motel has 52 years of business and it can't be compared to the modern ones, but being clean,basic and friendly are my three main goals for running this motel, which I am sure meet the needs of most of our guests like you. Thanks again and wish you have a pleasant trip!

"The room is on the main drag, but traffic isn't that noticeable."
"I would suggest spend the extra 20.00 and find another motel it is not worth over 100.00 it was asking I would stay away."
"We were not disturbed by neighbours or traffic. Most vulnerable room would be #6 but it may be fine."
"no good room, they will all have the traffic noise."
"Suites are Best. Some of the Individual Rooms are Long in the Tooth."
