“Nice staff”
Reviewed 22 November 2012

We found the staff here to be friendly and accomodating BUT this is an older, outdoor corridor motel. It was terribly noisy. The A/C rattled and whined, the fan was humming, and the walls are thin. To top it off, the hotel is built right in front of a busy RR track. If you are a light sleeper, this isn't the place.

Room Tip: Stay as far away from RR tracks as possible.

HotelRepSalmonArm, Manager at Best Western Salmon Arm Inn, responded to this review, 13 March 2013
Thank you for writing a review for us. We are a 30 year old building but have undergone extensive renovations and up grades recently. While we are nestled nicely between Hwy1 and the railroad tracks we do have rooms that are considerably quieter as they are farther from the train and we are located a block off of Hwy1. If you are a light sleeper you can always request to be away from the tracks - we always try very hard to meet guest requests - unfortunately we can not ever guarantee a specific location.
I inquired to maintenance about the noisy A/C unit and all of our AC units get "winterized" in or around the middle of October as it is not common that someone uses them at the end of November as our temperatures outside are quite cool and can get into minus temperatures overnight.

We called on speck to see if this hotel could accommodate us whilst traveling through BC in June. We were instantly made to feel welcome and were offered a great room with all the facilities we needed and more besides. The room was clean, spacious and airy with a great en suite. Breakfast was included in the nightly rate which was a bonus. There were also ample Tea and coffee making facilities in the room. The staff were extremely helpful during our stay and I would recommend this hotel to anyone requiring a good nights rest in comfortable surroundings.

Was checking out the area so stayed at the Best Western in Salmon Arm in September 2012. The rooms were very clean, pet friendly Nice fairly good size pool and hot tub in separate building. Also very clean. Breakfast included - Waffles, toast, pastries, begals, yogurt, cereal etc as well as coffee and juice. Also, you got 10% discount on the good food at the pub resturant next door.

For those with kids, there was a waterslides park a few doors down. Quiet area, would stay again.

Room Tip: the Hotel is ground level, A/C worked well. Friendly staff. Parking outside.

Clean. nice beds and pretty quiet. Service was good. Best complementary breakfast in any hotel/motel I have been in. Get an upper floor as we had a stomper who went in and out and in and out above us. Train goes right by but we did not hear it.

We got the last room at this motel. Since it was the room that they use for people with pets, we checked it out and it was very clean and had no odor. The breakfast was adequate, but the fruit was in sorry shape. Front office staff very friendly. Price was high, but we had to take what we could get.

We took a road trip to B.C., this July and stayed at the Salmon Arm, Best Western. The front desk staff were very pleasant and helpful. Our room was very clean. We enjoyed the breakfast in the morning which was quite varied. More than enough selection.
