After our layover stop in Greenwood B.C. ,we decided to go to Castlegar as part of our road trip to the Kootenay .Our first choice of accommodations there was the Chameleon Hotel,from the outside,it seems to have that old style charms,from the pictures of the suites,it definitely look appealing and the price factor is pretty attractive.But due to GF osteo arthritis ...stairs is out of the question.So we quickly had to find a back up plan to stay where it does not involve stairs or lots of steps,factor in daily rate and closeness to food and shopping due to GF can't walk too far.Two choices we came to was Cozy Pines Motel or Twin River Motel.We chose Twin River Motel for its location to begin with.When we arrived at the office we were greeted by one of the most dedicated,thoughtful and warm Inn keeper on this trip so far.The suite we chose was front facing street view and inside our suite was clean with full kitchenette if you choose to cook your food combine with a comfortable bed that we felt it gave us some good rest.One of the interesting idea in this suite was that the ac is small and quieter ...located in back bedroom and the ceiling fan at the front draws the gentle cool breeze to our sleeping area at the front part of the suite.You get a nice gentle quieter cool breeze without the white noise that keep you up at night.There is Tim Horton right next door and other restaurants/pub within minutes of driving or walking so dining was close to us.This place does has a little bit of quirks ...like shower in our suite took a little bit of time for hot water to rush out and the blinds facing the front at times was alittle bit sticky and one or two flaps were out of alignment...how ever these are not deal breakers to us....The thoughts we gather about the Twin River Motel are reasonable rates for the time of season we travel,good bed,clean room and kitchenette,strong wi-fi to stay in touch,pretty close to dining,No frill grocery across the street,Tim Horton next door and friendly enough even our dog enjoy the stay...top it off with a warm and dedicated Inn keeper and her staff to us.This motel deserve a solid 4 star!!!

Room Tip: We chose the front facing street view ,but rear suites maybe a little bit quieter

The room has mice poison under the vanity in the bathroom, the air condition/heater did not work. My wife sat in bed for about 30 minutes and was covered in bites. We got our money back and left that place and the owner refused to reimburse us for the bite medication and mattress cover and treatment for our home.

This is one of the worst Motels I have stayed in, it smells and is
dirty. The traffic noise is the worst ever. We were charged $90.00 to stay in this run down mess. I have stayed in over 1000 Motels on Motorcycle trips and this is the worst.

We had a wonderful stay - the view from our room was amazing. Joanne and Erik were great hosts and very welcoming. We were amazed that we were welcomed so warmly as we have a big dog. The bed was very comfortable, and the room was so clean we couldn't believe what a good value Twin Rivers is.

Room Tip: room 116 at the end is the best!

The location on the river with walk below and a cross walk away from No Frills for groceries, generous size of the units, and the kitchens (gas stoves, full size fridge) are really good but the motel still suffers from an indifferent owner ... without the Staff (who are helpful, friendly, and keep the place very clean) the owner would be in trouble with the mix and match furnishings and his instinct to keep fixtures and furniture until, I imagine, it completely evaporates. The property is for sale ... some one who would like to keep the basics while upgrading beds, tables, and chairs and putting in fans in the washrooms should jump on it. You could have a great little hospitality business.

Room Tip: IF you are too finicky to stay in a classic room from the 1960's (they even have cooling closets), then you best go to the "newer wing" the runs East-West to the river. The older, Columbia avenue facing units, are however very spacious and kept very clean.
