We arrived in Merritt without a reservation on the same weekend the Harley Davidson crew was in town, and were happy to find a quiet motel away from all the action. This appears to be a family-run business, likely a recent takeover of an older motel. They have started updating the motel: new siding, windows, paint, newer beds, big screen TV's, updates to the bathrooms, etc. The room we were in (#17) still had older carpets, quaint light fixtures and a noisy in-wall air conditioner. However, everything in the room was spotlessly clean and in good working order. The beds were very comfortable and the price was good. The only long-term problem they're going to face is what to do with the noisy pipes - especially when the neighbour is having a shower! We felt the property showed a lot of pride of ownership and we were very comfortable there.
