Wonderful place to stay. Unique check-in as we had to go to the bar to check in. The room had an old fashion charm. We were surprised to find a basket of goodies and a fridge stocked with water and juices. Beds were comfortable and theshower was large. Will definetly stay here again.

I came to Rupert for a wedding and since this was the most convenient place and looked nice I decided to stay at the Drift. I couldn't have been more pleased. I stayed in the Beymer Suite, it was beautiful, nice view of the Wilson Theater, I could even see my aunt's old house from the bathroom window. This is... More

Lovely surprise at the Drift Inn. We may go back just to enjoy the inn and cute town. Very comfortable with great view over square and above outdoor patio dining. Great service and beautiful decor. Excellent food and ambience.

If you want the most value for your money and top notch accommodations- restaurant/bar and hotel you need to drift in to the Drift Inn. Just off the interstate it was a wonderful place. Friendly locals, great conversation with the owner and the staff were kind and helpful. Had my first taste of lamb and my husband's steak was cooked... More

I was so delighted to find such lovely accommodations in downtown Rupert. For the price of a chain hotel out on the highway, my sister and I enjoyed real luxury in a historic building with all the modern amenities you could want. The furnishings were luxurious, especially loved the bed quilts. There was a parlor next door with games, books,... More

My wife and I discovered the Inn last June when we were visiting a relative in a nearby city. We were impressed first by the friendly staff and owner (Charlie and his lovely wife - sorry can't recall her name) of the restaurant/hotel facility. The chef is talented and has put a personal touch on dishes that reflects skill and... More

My son and I spent 2 nights at the Drift Inn and thoroughly enjoyed the stay. I slept very well and enjoyed the view of the town square from my room. The ambience is definitely something special. Pictures, signs and decorations in the rooms and in the lounge area all made it a very peaceful place. The food in the... More

I have been traveling to Rupert frequently for work. I chose Henry's after reading the good reviews and was pleasantly surprised to find that it was an even better value than I had imagined. Firstly, I was hesitant to stay in a bed & breakfast style place on a business trip. To clarify, Henry's is not a B&B, it would... More

“I stayed in Beymer and Frazier. Both are immaculate. Beymer is the best room in the house, (3) flatscreens, a sitting room, whirlpool bath & shower, complete kitchenette and king bed. Frazier is slightly more modest, without the sitting room and whirlpool bath, but highly comfortable as well.”
