“Little Oasis in the Mountains”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

Friendly staff, clean room. Had to make a quick trip to Revelstoke. Price was affordable and the breakfast was great. As motels go this one is good. It is on a main road so expect some noise from traffic and trains, but not too bad. It is close to downtown so you can walk if necessary. Would recommend as a good place to stay for a couple of days. They offer free passes to the aquatic center, which would be a good value if you are staying longer.

We stayed overnight while on the way to Banff. The room was clean and comfortable and nothing fanciful. You can hear the trains at night but there aren't any loud horns. Just as some of them had mentioned here, it was just the rumbling sounds from the slow-moving trains on the tracks. For me, it does not cause any problem to my sleep quality. I like the DIY breakfast that comes with nice waffles. Overall, a nice motel at a reasonable price.

We stopped over in Revelstoke on our journey west to Vancouver. This motel had good reviews so we booked it for one night. The rooms, although not big, were comfortable, clean and great value for money. The staff were helpful and breakfast good. The only problem was the breakfast area was small and the seating outside was wet. The motel was close to the road and railway and previous reviews had stated it was noisy. However we had no issue with the noise (an occasional low rumbling with an emotive distant whistle)and enjoyed watching the trains slowly trundle past.
The motel was within walking distance of the town centre and restaurants. Revelstoke is a nice clean and interesting little place.

Room Tip: Its a small motel so most rooms would be a good choice

We stayed for two nights and really like it. The rooms are very nicely decorated and clean, though a bit small. Location is very good, as you can easily walk to the center of Revelstoke. Staff was also very friendly and helpful. The breakfast could do a bit better (more fresh choices). but it is ok. We would definitely stay again.

This was our second stay at this delightful little motel in Revelstoke. Both times our stay has been wonderful. Very clean, very affordable and a delicious breakfast too! Yes, you can hear the trains.. but you are in a railroad town....I personally like it.. It didnt keep me awake nor did it wake me at any time. Lovely motel , We will for sure be back!

Room Tip: I suppose if you are a light sleeper, asking for a room at the back of the motel might be a good ide...

We were in Revelatoke for a hockey game and debated whether to drive home to the Okanagan. We checked out a couple of other motels and them stopped at the Swiss Chalet and was impressed with how clean it was and how nice the rooms were for the price. The room was pretty warm and we couldn't seem to figure out how to get the heat down so it was a bit stifling during the night. It's right across from the train but we didn't seem to hear it during the night. The breakfast included was nice with make-it-yourself waffles and typical toast cereals muffins etc. more than what we needed. If you are a pet owner they will not be allowing pets after Oct 14 so we got lucky with our stay.
I would stay again if we don't have our dog with us

I stayed here twice in one weekend. Once for a night in a single room on my way to Calgary and one night in a two bed on the way back to Vancouver. This place a great. Everything is very very clean. The rooms are nice, simple and well equiped. I won't say how much I was charged each night but it was way less then the other big chains by far. Yes the don't have a pool but if that's something you need then be prepared to pay extra for it. They do give you free passes to the brand new beautiful Aquatic Centre just down the road. The trains across the street never bothered me. This is Revelstoke, there are trains deal with it. It was actually kind of nice to see and hear them. The beds are very comfortable but bring a harder pillow if you like them because the ones here are soft. The free wi-fi works great. Breakfast was awesome. Just enough for the drive home. The service here is great to. This little place knows what they have a the pride of ownership and staff reflect in everything. Highly recommend the Swiss Chalet Motel to travelers.
