Very cute little town, the Best Western here is close to the highway so it's easy on, easy off - stayed here as a midway stop going through the Rockies from Calgary to Whistler/Vancouver, and it worked out well. Went for an early evening stroll along the boardwalk/park/pier thing they have there, very good ice cream at the end.

The room was very clean but sparsely decorated and the bed was not comfortable. The breakfast was excellent but the breakfast room was too small for the number of guests resulting in a line up waiting for tables.

I am surprised to hear that you did not find our beds very comfortable as it is almost never that I have heard that. Most often people find our beds to be very comfortable. We did some renovations last fall and we do have some exciting renovations planned for this fall and I hope that you will try us again after we have completed the renovations.

We had a very comfortable stay. A nicely appointed spacious room with great bedding, great tv and it was nice to have a fridge and microwave. Very clean with utmost attention paid to details. Very quick check-in with pleasant professional staff. Quality at a reasonable price which is probably why it appeared to be fully booked on a Sunday night!

I am pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay here with us at the Best Western Salmon Arm Inn. In the high season, even on Sundays, we do often fill up very quickly so I always recommend traveling with a reservation.

Reasonable motel. Nothing flash or fancy, but nothing really wrong either. A good breakfast included, though super-crowded area for it - not a big deal though. Convenient if you're happy driving everywhere, but the immediate vicinity was pretty bland and dead, eg. closed shopfronts even in the middle of the summer peak season

Salmon Arm is a beautiful charming litlte community on the lake. Unfortunately, unlike our city counterparts, the town does close up fairly early - yes, even in the summer. We are the motel that is located within walking distance to town and to the waterfront. Right next door to us is a fantastic pub with great food. For families, within a 1 block radius there are 2 fast food places and 3 family restaurants as well as 2 malls. Ask the front desk attendant about all there is to do with in walking distance and I am certain that something to your fancy would be available.

Overnight stop from Vancouver to Edmonton. Quite pricey @ $162 but it was a king size room. The only one they had due a last minute cancellation, and as I had tried 3 hotels before this I took it. Receptionist was very helpful and pleasant when I enquired about a room. The room itself was good 216, no problems with that. However the morning breakfast was a joke. It was extremely crowded and people were milling around reception waiting for somewhere to sit. I counted, there were 18 places. When I went outside I counted the rooms. 88, so if there were 2 minimum in each and I know there were several family's so could have been more? that still makes 176 guests!! for 18 places!! Things were running out and when the "sausages", I use the term loosely, were replenished at least some of them were still cold. I suspect they were frozen then heated in a microwave. Not good at all.

Thank you for filling out a review of your recent stay here with us. Yes, the breakfast area does tend to get crowded, we have 24 seats and 75 rooms. We are currently looking into ways to expand the breakfast area, however, the only place that is obvious would remove 2 parking spaces.
We also do have a breakfast attendant who works very hard to ensure the breakfast area is stocked and dishes are cleaned and set back out for continued use. Using glassware and not styrofoam does make keeping up slightly difficult. I can assure you, that no one works harder than our breakfast attendant in replenishing the food items.

I stay at hotels alot this one has a bad breakfast and is not worth your time., Take your time and try to find better. Even getting to the hotel can be a pain due to tight parking stalls and lots of spiders

I am sorry that you did not enjoy the breakfast. Thank you for the feedback and we are open to hearing suggestions on what we should add to make it a better breakfast. We currently offer, 3 types of cold cereal, 3 varieties of hot cereal, 3 varieties of breads, english muffins, 4 varities of muffins, danishes, cinnamon buns, fresh fruit, yogurt, hard boiled eggs, sausages, waffles, 2 options for milk, 3 juice options, 6 different teas, both regular and decaf coffee.
We are located right next to the lake, so unfortunately we do have a lot of mosquitoes which bring the spiders. Staff are out daily vacuuming and sweeping cobwebs away as well as spraying for the spiders. They are a bit overwhelming this year but can assure you we have not given up the fight.
The parking spaces are regulation size as to any other commercial facility.
