We received a very friendly welcome here, plus lots of information on the area. It was easy to find coming from Kootenay Park. The room was not large, but the bathroom had been recently updated and was spotless. We took the motel owner's advice and drove to nearby Invermere, a pleasant town with beautiful flowers and interesting galleries. We had dinner at the Salzburg Restaurant in Radium (again as suggested) which is a very short walk from the motel. The food was very good and our bill for two with wine was $75. Later, we used our passes and beach towels (both supplied by the motel) and went to the hot springs which are 2 km away.

Room Tip: The highway through Radium is very busy and noisy, so if you are a light sleeper you might need earp...

Stayed here in room 15 as part of a honeymoon tour of British Columbia - my wife has never used a motel before (we are British!) so I was hoping we'd picked the right one. We literally drove the street and this one was the most attractive but still mid-range on price. Got a MEGA friendly welcome and loads of useful restaurant advice. Room is clean, comfortable and not lacking in any area for what you would expect in this price band. Good choice!!

Lady at front desk was friendly, and gave us lots of ideas for the time that we were there, and told us about a great little restaurant Casa Vino, that was also very good. The room was clean, and lots of fresh flowers, the only thing that would have kept us from giving a excellent, was the room was a little small. Would stay there again.

We stayed here two nights while on a little golf trip with friends. The rooms were immaculate, the service was friendly and informative, and the price was very reasonable. It also had great floral decor and a nice patio area out back which was a comfortable place to spend our evening. The single queen room was quite
small, however, we were hardly in the room so that was irrelevant. There was a table and two chairs outside each room which allowed for more space to relax. I would highly recommend this place to anyone and we 'll be sure to stay again when in town.

Our room was spotless. It was spacious and very well lit. Although I think the walls were thin, we did not hear a thing in the evening. The clerk was friendly and helpful even though we were there only one night. The price was very reasonable.
