You can't miss it as it's right on the main drag coming in to Hope. I'm not picky when it comes to accommodations ,and every once in a while I crave time travel motels, so I expected a lot of character (was secretly hoping for it). Was not disappointed :) Lucked out with a detached cabin so I could literally pull right up to unpack. Upon opening the door I was greeted with the sweet musky smell of old wood :) Decor was as expected (floral), shower was hot,pressure was good, and the usual soaps were provided. TV worked, free wi-fi,fridge,microwave,large dining room table,A/C (didn't use), and baseboard heating. So basically anything you need for a short or longer stay. Desk staff was friendly and helped me out with recommendations for breakfast! Bring ear plugs if you're a light sleeper, and fair warning the room was a tad drafty (there's a spare blanket in the closet). Overall I'd stay here again*

My granddaughter & I got stuck in Revelstoke in July 2020 due to a road closure heading home to Blind Bay-when after 7 hrs we were told with hundreds of stranded motorists that road would not at least be open to late morning-we then went on our search for a room-nothing everyone booked-this isn't a big town-we then started to go to all of then to get 0n a list for any cancellations/no shows-this motel came thru for us!! Such a clean Motel-service was excellent even w Covid we were provided with bagged breakfast-such friendly efficient service in such a crazy time!!

We enjoyed the pet rooms. Loved the 'old school' design of the room, from the old style furnature to the wood walls and ceiling. The beds were very comfortable and the rooms were very clean and fresh. Lots of hot water in the bathroom. It was private and we enjoyed our short visit.

I love this motel, it's quiet, pet friendly rooms..comfy beds, vintage feel, tidy and very friendly owners. It's an old motel so don't expect pristine furniture and decor!! There are minor bumps and scrapes on things, so if you want silver and white clean metal lines and decor....don't come here. This is for people who enjoy heritage and cozy things. Not for yuppies and whiners. It's clean it's lovely...and downtown. That's all that matters.

The owner is bizarre and rude. Asking odd questions when I checked in and when giving directions to room and parking was loud and rude, zero interpersonal skills. A/C didn’t work so after a long night in a stuffy room with no supplies replenished on a two day stay, I am loading my car and this same owner comes flying over to my cabin in the little cart he drives around the property on yelling at me to turn off the outside light. I am in no mood for this so I continue to pack my car and he the ENTERS my room to turn off the light. I would never stay here again and am baffled by the good reviews.
