This is a typical 2 star hotel. No complaints there, however, be cautious when booking. We had to phone to ensure that we could get a pet room and all of a sudden the price went up to $152.00 plus a $25.00 pet fee. When I questioned that, the price dropped to $130.00. I found out later that had we have been able to book on-line, we would have only paid $100.00 per night which is what I would expect to pay for this level of hotel. They may have overcharged in the short term but they’ve lost my business in the long term. I don’t appreciate price gouging and it leads me to question their other business practices. We are periodically in the area to visit family but we’ll find other accommodations in the future.

Hotel's Favourite
Our family has stayed at this hotel several times over the past 3 years. Each time we are treated with kindness and the best of care. Our visits have from 2 to 4 adults and the hotel is right there to ensure we have everything we need and are enjoying our stay. The room is always clean and well equipped. We don't usually have a car as we are right around the corner from family we go there to visit. Everything is close at hand from grocery shopping, fast foods, lounge/liquor/beer outlet and more. The cleaning & office staff are extremely accommodating and even printed our boarding passes on departure. We will surely come back here.

Unbelievable that there is no blind or curtain on a very large frosted glass window at the back by the bathroom. As soon as the sun rose it was so bright we woke up and the room was lit up so we could no get back to sleep. Just do not understand how they think it doesn't need a blind or curtain. How cheap are they? Who decided windows can do without them just because they are frosted? THANKS A LOT!

My company has had myself and my employees staying at this motel since 2016. I am the business owner, and have done repeat stays here every time I travel from Calgary to Vancouver. Never a problem. The $200 damage deposit that they demand, I have never had to worry about for myself and my employees. Until last week. I stayed at this motel last week. I was "stung" with a $40 charge for a charge for the sheets. Pics were provided of a stained sheet, but there was NO PROBLEMS during the night. This made no sense at all. Apparently, I am not the only one who has been scammed by this motel. Please read the reviews. I do not know what has changed over the year, but I will never have myself nor my employees stay at this motel again. This seems like a covid tax of sorts. How to make something extra given the economic struggles of the world. This was deplorable use of the damage deposit clause.

Dear 387wjc, Thank you for your review and comments. I have reviewed your folio, and the pictures of the damages, and can confirm that the fee charged was actually very reasonable and nominal. The purpose of putting up the damage deposit is so that instances like this are addressed. We are sorry that you were upset with having to pay the fee for damaging the sheets, however, as we explained to you, while many of the other stains were able to be removed from the sheets after manually having to scrub them off, one of the sheets was damaged beyond repair due to the yellow stains. Thanks for your feedback, and we wish you a great day. Sincerely

I've stayed at this location numerous times over the years with out issue. On or around November 13th 2020 I stayed at the Vedder River Inn for one night will visiting my parents. A day after check out I was called and accused of leaving a dog odor and stain in the room that would require steam cleaning. I talked to them and told them the room had a strong odor of pinesol when I arrived, and I had no dog in the room. I don't own a freaking dog. Regardless of this information they proceeded to charge me $100 to 'steam clean' the room. This was a complete fallacy and as far as I'm concerned, a fraudulent cash grab. I'm very disappointed that as a consumer I have no protection from unscrupulous business owners looking to grab cash when business is slow. I will be using all avenues of social media to express my concerns with the abusive practices demonstrated by this establishment.
