“Lucky Find For Us!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2010

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.

After making a poor choice down the road at another establishment. The new owners (3wks new) welcomed us in way ahead of regular check in.
The rooms were spotless (I went to look first)
the new owners are taking pride in their new business.
the continental breakfast was actually in a nice room (not a hallway with toast and waffles only) they actually had fruit and a decent spread!!

We had the misfortune to stay in this Motel while in Cranbrook while my son was in Hospital there. While the Motel looks presentable from the road, it was a completely different experience staying there. Our room was filthy, the kitchenette (or at least what the claimed was a kitchenette, was disgusting with greasy utensils, dirty dishes and filthy sink. The bathroom was dirty and we had to clean the toilet ourselves before we dared to use it. I wouldn't recommend this place if it were the last place with rooms available in Cranbrook...I would probably sleep in my vehicle instead.

This is an old review from 2008. New owners (The Graw's), new management, much improvement as testified by our guests. Deluxe continental breakfast featuring local fruits (in season), and other products manufactured locally by artisans and small business owners. New linens and towels. Great friendly helpful staff. Bed and breakfast atmosphere without the high price. Enjoy your stay at the Model A!

Dropped in to this motel without a reservation. This is a standard motel, but it looks well maintained from the outside. Our room had a broken curtain rail, which still functioned. The room was clean but had no view at all. A complimentary breakfast of toast, waffles, juice and coffee is availlable at reception. Staff were friendly and for what we paid, we spent a comfortable night. It was okay.
