Always like to stay at Motels and this one is a gem! Mr. Patel the owner is a very nice person. WE met a delightful lady who was working on the rooms. Nice feel to this Motel.

Stayed one night July 22, 2018. Room with two double beds ( separate rooms even). Rate was : $ 111.12 CAD or $87.00 USD. Room 109 I believe.

Super excited to see the room. Everythingw as spotless. Stripped the beds and checked all as I do. Linens and pillows all great. Comfortable beds.Towels all good and plenty of them. Nice laminate flooring. Super fancy Kuerig tupe coffee maker. Fridge good. Microwave good.

Bathroon great and very clean. Much appreciated.

Tv was actual cable. Washing machine on site ( we went off site as it was taken.) Parking outside the room door. Nice and secure.

Delightful stay. Wish our Motels in the USA had been as good ( one and half month road trip.) This is a gem.

Only suggestion: our room had two small chairs that were not really comfortable to sit in so we eneded up on the bed drinking our coffee. Would suggest a more comoftable seating. The business chair in the room at the table was fine. Two would be great.

Stop here and say hi to Mr. Patel. We had no disappointment or nasty surprises. Having stayed in Denver at the Ramada On Colfax ( hideous) this was a dream come true. Thank you for caring so much a bout your property.

pets allowed? not sure,

I seem to have erased my photos of the Motel..but check online....photos are, in my opinion, as they are represented.

Booked for one night and extended for another 2 because of their fantastic rates. Brenda at the desk was lovely, and very kind and pleasant. The rooms are simple but clean. If you’re looking for a simple, no -frills hotel in a great location downtown Vernon, this is it.

Pleasant reception. All ground-floor rooms with parking right outside. Fridge and microwave in room, pod coffee-maker (some rooms have kitchenettes), good WiFi (each room with its own modem), lots of TV channels (though the remote doesn’t operate the volume controls; must turn on TV’s power and change volume manually). I needed an extension cord for my laptop at the table to the nearest outlet. The motel sits beside busy 32nd Street (Hwy 97), and the air-conditioning unit in the room is loud. Earplugs and eye mask will help with road/guest sounds and morning light. There were a couple of cleanliness issues with my room, but otherwise, all was good.

This motel is in the middle of Vernon. It is well located to walk and see the wall paintings of this place. The room was spacious, good beds and refrigirator. The lady at the reception was very kind and helpfull.

Visiting friends in Vernon August long weekend thought I would pay a fortune for accommodation. Ended up booking this motel for $90. Clean room, small kitchen, great location to all restaurants. I would recommend for a night or several if visiting the area.
