This is a perfect hotel to stay at when stopping over in Creston. Clean and comfortable room, choice of restaurants/pubs nearby and historical ambience being in an established hotel in small town beautiful BC. Back behind the main lobby, the inside courtyard area was cozy and welcoming, with a coffee table set up in the morning just a few steps...

As the name implies, it is right downtown - handy to everything. We were traveling on a budget and we all know how scary that can be. You usually 'get what you pay for'. First thing we found - It was so very clean - sigh of relief. Comfortable bed - friendly staff - just what we needed.

The location is right downtown and can't be beat. The price was fantastic: $70 for a room with two comfortable beds. We were a little worried it would be noisy being on the main drag, but it was extremely quiet. I'd call it excellent value for the price: the people were friendly, the Wifi was swift, and the bathroom clean....

This is an older property, but clean, well-equipped & well-maintained. It has a large comfortable interior "common room," making it easy to meet other travelers, or chat with others in your party. Friendly owner. Had good dinners in both the Indian restaurant & the pub, just steps away.

This is a Mom and Pop place downtown within walking distance to the shops. The bed was not comfortable for us. Rooms are dated but clean. We probably will choose another property when we return to Creston.

Not a great place to stay. Extremely dated and in need if a face-lift. Bathrooms had no bars of soap using a liquid handsoap dispenser instead...tacky. No shampoo available so be sure you have your own. No hair driers. Hot tub was hot but it did appear to be a tad grungy. Considering we paid close to $90.00 a night...

Very old. Rooms were spacious enough with a small but clean bathroom. One microwave in a common are for all guests. Rooms do not lock from the outside so they have to be left open all day. Staff were friendly. Good location in the centre of town.

We needed a room for one night of our motorcycle trip. Phoned ahead they were accommodating. Price for a 2 bed room was good value. Beds were comfortable and place was clean and quiet. The rating of 5 I gave is because, in my mind, it is a top rated accommodation in its class. I recommend Downtowner to others.
