Passing through Vernon for one night and stopped by the Visitor Centre for overnight accommodation recommendations. Referred to Schell Motel Express and the property exceeded our expectations! Welcoming front desk staff who honoured the quoted price. Spotless room, fast wifi internet, microwave and mini fridge. Quality oak furniture and recent renovations. Excellent value for the reasonable cost!

We booked a one night stay at the Schell Motel Express on our way to Albeta and were pleasantly surprised by how clean the room was. The staff was friendly and the location was great, within three minutes walking distance from downtown. we would definitely stay there again.

I booked using Expedia for myself, husband and a seperate room for my aunt. When we got to the hotel early we were told that because Expedia overbooked they were going to be forced to put us into the newly acquired Belair Manor annex. (this is a previous well known crack apartment house). We checked out the rooms, and found... More

We booked Vernon as a 3-night base for a swing tour through the Okanagan and Kootenay valleys primarily due to its excellent value ratings as a budget motel. Because we had a pet, we were offered an "upgrade@ to Rm 112, which is a 1-bedroom corner unit and much larger than most others! We paid a little more but were... More

Only reason I booked this motel is their web page claims they have a hot tub. Well no hot tub was there. No reason to stay here, had I known this ahead of time, would of never stayed here. Was clean and rooms made up in timely manner

With the staff, the location and the updated room. Very good value for money! Every room has its own Wi-Fi so it is very fast. An older motel that has been updated. My room anyway. In the middle at the back of the "U" it's built in, so the noise from the road was very minimal. Other rooms may be... More

It is puzzling that so many people have offered favourable reviews for this motel. It was largely on the basis of these reviews that I booked a room there. I would advise travellers to avoid this motel, not simply because it is situated in a seedy neighbourhood immediately adjacent to a noisy intersection, but principally because of the immensely off-putting...

Stayed here a few times. Have never had a bad experience. Its kinda plain and maybe a bit dated but thats to be expected in an economy motel. Beds were comfortable and the place was clean and offers free wfi. A good value in my opinion
