My husband has stayed here previously, his suggestion to return for a stop-over on our trek through the Rockies. Tried to reserve a room over the internet with the third parties, but to no avail as was showing as all "sold-out". I made the decision to phone directly and speak to "Anne", one of the owners who answered promptly. She... More

Thank you for taking time out of your busy day to offer up kind words. I really appreciate it and I also hope to see you again..

Backyard orchard is barely one. A patch of grass and a couple of trees. Innkeeper is a miserable grouch. My 5yr old had a 5min shower and ran out of hot water. Only a 150gal water heater to service all the rooms. Will have to see how the breakfast will be. Not expecting much at this point. Wish we picked... More

This motel is a little way out of town as you approach from the east. The beaucolic setting and congenial hosts, Anne & George, will make for a relaxing stay. Even though you are just off the main road, the rooms are very quiet...step behind the building and you will enter a magnificent, tranquil acreage, brimming with an array of... More

Small motel on the outskirts of Creston so you need to drive to get anything to eat. The rooms are on the basic side with nowhere to put anything down in the bathroom which is irritating. There was a storage counter outside the bathroom with a coffee maker on, plus china mugs and glass cups, but no tea bags. However... More

Thank you for your review as you comments are appreciated. The bathrooms are minimal as it makes it safer for any handicapped guests to move around in. However I understand your concern and will look into some type of solution. We have Tea available for those who enjoy "a cuppa tea".Glad you found the room clean and spacious and enjoyed... More

We were not disappointed with our stay here. Anna greeted us upon arrival and sent us off in the morning. Our room was clean and comfortable. We even had a small sitting area and patio doors to the backyard area. The wifi as good. We were off season for breakfast and the grapes in the backyard-another time. Thanks

Good bed, clean and servicable. Quiet, too. Great orchard setting but no fruit when we were there, or breakfast available. Wifi was good. Friendly owner who gave us an excellent restaurant recommendation (Chatka, Polish food just down the road).

Was led to believe that it was a "cut above" the average. It was not. Saggy queen size mattress - not a good sleep. Next time in Creston I would try somewhere else. So-So continental breakfast. Would have been nice for a TV to be in breakfast room to watch the morning news.

I'm sorry to learn you were disappointed with your stay . However, the comment about a saggy mattress is confusing as our beds are all less then 3 years old and are firm. Most quests comment on the fact they had a good sleep. Also we have had a TV in the Breakfast room for 5 years. It is hard... More

This is a cute 10-unit older motel which has been modernized and is neat as a pin. The double queen rooms at the back are larger, with a sitting area with a couch, soft chair, fridge, microwave and flatscreen TV. The back door opens to a small patio (2 chairs) facing a small orchard, and guests are welcome to pick... More

First let me say that is was clean. I know people say "As long as it's clean". Yeah but there are other things that matter as well. Like safety. The windows did not lock.

We arrived to a most pleasant host (Anna) who went far above and beyond to give us an excellent experience. Her homemade jams, jellies, and baked goods for breakfast are an excellent treat. Quiet, clean, affordable. Would return if ever back in BC
