“Great place. Friendly Staff. Clean”
Reviewed October 28, 2011

The staff was really nice. The room was comfortable and the bed wasn't half bad. The room was clean and the bathroom was clean. They take pets and our dog was really pleased with the friendliness of the staff. He even got a pet and a hand shake. It was a good value especially compaired to the other hotels in town.

After viewing rooms in several economic motels in the area I chose the Model A motel. The location is perfect very close to shopping resturants etc. My suite was large ,clean and comfortable the fridge and microwave in the room were great features. In view of how busy the motel appeared to be ,i was pleasently suprised at how quite my room was and i found the bed quite comfortable . The front desk staff were very accomodating and eagar to assist. I had a small problem with my internet connection , upon speaking with Randy @ the front desk it was resolved immediatley. Continental breakfast was offerd with my stay (selection of cereal breads fruit etc) I found the motel excellent value for my travel dollar and have no hesitation recomending it to friends ..

It is nice that they are pet friendly (they charge for pest though as many other places do). I agree with another person that said it looks presentable from the road, but when you get a room on the second floor and see the carpet runners outside of the room you have to wonder why they would not spend the few hundred dollars making that presentable ! The carpet leading to each room is worn right through showing the wood floor under neath it, very ugly !
You do get what you pay for..........

Thank you for writing a review of our Motel! Your feedback is greatly appreciated. In response to your review, we have owned the motel for one year and have spent the first year performing long overdue maintenance items left by previous owners. This year we have replaced the roof, have plans on replaced the outdoor carpet upstairs (difficult to do when you are running close to full house), and are sprucing up the exterior as much as we can in between selling rooms, doing maintenance, doing laundry, etc, etc. Over the winter we will be moving inside the rooms, painting and replacing rugs (also maintenace that was long overdue and left undone by previous owners). As most people understand it takes time and lots of $$$ to totally renovate and our hopes are to have the exterior complete this year. Again, thank you for your sincere review, we appreciate your business. PS: Where do you find outdoor runner for a few hundred dollars - our quote was $6,000 - $8,000 including labour???? lol ;-) Cynthia

This hotel was clean and presentable. The continental breakfast was good and well supplied. You get what you pay for in this hotel, it is not fancy, but it is comfortable and clean and definitely well priced. We came into town late without a reservation and they were hospitable. I would recommend it for a quick stay.

We received excellent help from Lorrie. Very informative and it was nice to have a motel that takes pets. Upon checkout, very smooth. Everyone was exceptional. Tip- put some hard boiled eggs on your continental breakfast. Have had them everywhere down at the coast but not in the east or west kootenays.
We will definetley stay there again.

We searched Cranbrook for a place to stay and were lucky to find the Model A Inn. The new owners, Randy and Cynthia, are great people and they keep the rooms spotless. We also enjoyed the free breakfast while chatting with Cynthia - it felt more like a Bed & Breakfast!

Not a bad motel, the location was convenient for our visit. The carpets were old and could use a shampooing, but otherwise it was clean. Staff was friendly and accomodating. They serve a better breakfast than most average motels, in a cute breakfast room. They have a lot of channels on their cable service, with interactive guide cable. The air conditioner was a little noisy. We slept well there for our six-night stay. Our dog was welcome, for a few extra dollars per night.
