We had rooms 11 and 12 for three and four nights this past July long weekend and we were so impressed with the cleanliness and rates at Johnny's Motel. I have stayed at many a small-town motel in B.C. and most times you get what you pay for: adequately clean and usually renovations that are at least twenty years old. Johnny's was a pleasant surprise for us all: the location along the river and across the bridge from downtown allowed us some peace and quiet in the evening shaded by the trees and yet proximity to downtown over the bridge meant shops and restaurants were close if we needed them. The two rooms were furnished in a simple and functional style with clean bedding and towels, functional and tidy bathrooms, and perfect little kitchens. Our neighbours each night were usually middle-aged biker groups who were always quiet enough and I suspect that if they weren't the management would have assisted us with following courtesy quiet hours at night. I usually avoid motels and hotels if I can find a quiet bed and breakfast only because in the summer most hotels have noisy guests and it's hard to sleep - but Johnny's seemed to attract the "right" crowd! The pool was clean and had towels and toys for the kids. The owners were kind and laid-back and yet prompt with service and attention to detail as needed. I don't know if all suites were as up-to-date and clean as 11 and 12, but when I'm back in town I'll be returning here without hesitation. Finally: the price can't be beat for the value of the accommodation. Well done, Johnny's!
