Reviewed 23 September 2013

I spent one night in Vernon. Perfect stopover. On the main highway, clean comfortable older style motel, good price and no complaints about anything. I found the staff very helpful, and was able to check in at 2.00P.M. with no problem.

Ok....I was tired after a long drive and thought I would take a chance on an older motel based on the number of guests that were filling the courtyard.....Bad decision. I was even asked if I wanted to see the room first so it's all on me not the manager. The room was reeking of a half a century of smokers. The carpet .....well let's say it needs replacing. The manager was very welcoming and I was going to be on my way early so you get what you pay for; Right? Well I paid too much for the learning experience and won't be staying here in the future.

Room Tip: Choose another hotel.

After a week in Las Vegas paying for EVERY amenity except the beds, the Schell Express was a clean comfortable oasis! Two queen beds, one of them in a separate bedroom, cable TV, FREE internet, a fridge, microwave, coffee pot, and iron & ironing board. The room was freshly painted, no musty old motel smell, the staff was friendly, the exterior was clean and had beautiful hanging flower baskets.

The price was less than $100 a night! This is peak season in the beautiful Okanagan!

I highly recommend this hotel.

This motel is a money grabber!!! I had one smoke outside my room!! Next day cleaning lady apparently said my room wreaked of cigarette smoke and $200.00 was charged to my credit card. Worst part is you can't even dispute it,because there is no way to prove you didn't. It's their word against yours. So if you smoke don't do it on the property and if the room smells even a little like smoke when you check in report it to them right away or you'll get nailed for it when you leave. Other than being robbed by staff the room itself was fine.

I had to travel through Vernon in late August and decided to stay at the Schell Motel Express because of the great reviews on Trip Advisor. What a pleasant surprise - the room is not huge but it was exceptionally clean and offered all the amenities that you need - fridge - AC - TV - WiFi etc. I arrived early and they were still cleaning my room but made an extra effort to ensure that it was ready quickly. I had a minor problem getting my tablet on the WiFi so the evening office attendant came to the room himself and set it up - talk about service. I also needed a late departure and was told I could stay as long as I wanted - This motel is all about service!! It may not be a 5 star hotel but their quality of service is better than most 5 star hotels. A great price with clean rooms and great service - it is a perfect overnight stay!! Highly recommended!!

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back - away from the main road.They will be quieter.

Very noisy motel - wall are very thin! Carpet was dirty. Bathroom was old and tired. Only good thing; 2 rooms - 1 queen in each room. Beds were ok. Towels, face cloths etc were old and stained. Probably won't stay again. Didn't know there was a breakfast until I read here on tripadvisor...
