Cycling across Canada in late winter is certainly a challenge; but what was difficult in finding a place to stay in Hope was finding a place that was cost effective (camp-grounds all currently closed) while being liveable and comfortable.
They certainly lived up to those standards and more and I am really impressed with how awesome they were. There have been complains of cleanliness and customer service by other posters and like a few others, I looked and genuinely tried to find something to complain about; unsuccessful in that here are my thoughts:
-this is not a Hilton, so don't expect it to be. The rooms are clean, the beds are tidy and there is no lingering odours from the previous guests (smell was brought up in one of the other reviews). There won't be a mint sitting on the pillow but I was happy to see a coffee maker with all the fixings for a good cup of tea.
-Desk service was courteous and very helpful; with one staff listing off all the great local eateries for a hungry cyclist on a budget. The manager (I stayed a little past checkout-mechanical trouble) was understanding and really helped me out.
I dinged points on Location and Sleep Quality simply because they are one of the furthest (by furthest in Hope you really won't have to walk over 1KM) motels from the down town while a lovely patron thought it would be funny to sound their car alarm near midnight.
I would definitely stay again and am putting the word out that they are very accommodating to cyclists. They ensured I had a ground floor room and the staff at the front desk even brought some ice to my room from upstairs when she heard I had crashed earlier in the day. If that isn't a good show of how great they are here than I don't know how much more proof you need!
