Stayed for a couple of nights. Chose the place for its location, great price, good reviews and the we love motorcycles sign.
I have stayed at many motorcycle friendly motels across Canada and the usa but these folks really mean it, the special treatment at check in just for riders was very welcome, if you want to know what it is you will have to try the place out yourself.
I will happily stay here again next time I am in Cranbrook.

Stayed: June 2018, travelled solo

This hotel goes back a ways. I remember when it operated as a branded hotel way back when I was a kid. By the time we visited a few years ago, it was being operated as an independent. The new owners brought a tired old property up to date, even if they did so on a budget. When we visited last month (May, 2018), it looked like it was under new ownership again. The most recent owners look like they are putting their heart and soul into it, just as the previous ones did. It shows when someone cares about their hotel and their guests.

The building is a bit old, but it's in good repair, with updated fixtures as needed. The front desk agent, who I think is also the owner, was friendly and helpful. Our room was clean and fresh in every detail. Everything worked perfectly.

It's noisy on the main drag through Cranbrook, but the window at the front of our room did a good job of deadening the roar of traffic. The air conditioner was in a little anteroom to the side of the bathroom, not close to the bed as in most places where it noisily blasts cold air in your face all night. We didn't need to turn on the air conditioner. We found that by opening the bathroom window we could keep the room at a comfortable temperature as the evening cooled after a sweltering day. The back of the hotel faces the railway tracks, about half a block back. Three trains rolled through during the night, thankfully taking only a few minutes to pass. If we had closed all the windows, I'm sure it would have been dead quiet in our room, but I like the fresh air.

This is our preferred place to stay when spending a night in Cranbrook.

We stayed here last year and thought we'd give it a try on our way through this year. The hotel is starting to show its age, even compared to last year. Despite this, it was clean. The beds were OK . It faces the busy highway and the windows do not open. To keep air moving we had to put on the wall mounted A/C which was very noisy.

The staff at check-in were very friendly.

Also, they allow smoking on the walkway-deck in front of the rooms. So, even if you don't smoke you may be subjected to the smoke from your neighbors.

Our stay was a bit disappointing.

Room Tip: if you like to sleep with open windows or you are bothered by ambient noise, this motel is not for you
