We travelled as a couple, for 2 nights, 12 and 13 April 2013.. This a sixties kind of feel motel, quite plain, eggshell painted walls, however it was clean (other reviewers had mentioned it wasn't). I was concerned about the gap around the door, but it was secure and the room was warm enough on the cold March evening. Friendly reception lady, tea and coffee in the room (powder milk). No breakfast facilities. There is not much nearby,(although a Leisure facility is next door so I imagine this would be good for children, along with a park). Downtown is a good 40- 45 minute walk, but if you don't have a car there are a few buses operated by BC transit. We ate at Baxters across the road on the first night and that was good for plain pub food and cheap drinks (for more fancy restaurants suggest going to the Downtown area. There is also an Ihop but we didn't go there (however cheap breakfast there if wanted). The Recreation has a BBQ outside that guests can use. This is a budget hotel, no thrills, but clean and comfortable, ideal for a short stop on the way somewhere, make sure budget deal we paid about $60 per night for a double room. Location wise this is not central for nightlife other than Baxters (local pub that was quiet on a Friday night).
