“Comfortable stay with mountain views”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

We would have given this place a better review if the member of staff checking ius in was nicer.
She was really not interested or very informed and this put us off as we had heard that the staff here were friendly and helpful,
That aside, the room was newly furbished and spotless. The crisp white sheets and fluffy white towels were great as was the very comfortable bed and pillows. We slept well despite the trains going by in the night.The room was very small and cramped and my husband and I kept bumping into each other.
A bigger TV would also be good. We read that the TV was supposed to be 32" but I don't think it was.
It was good to have a coffee maker but please can we have some tea for the British!!. We do like our tea.
The shower was hot and very good and the views were stunning. We walked to town and enjoyed the feel and aura of Revelstoke.
The breakfast was okay if you like waffles and starchy, sweet food but we appreciated the eggs and cream cheese.
Fresh coffee would have been nice instead of instant coffee.
For the price we paid, it could have been better.

Tidy, clean, nicely furnished and professionally run this place is a good choice in Revelstoke.
Internet is fast and they have a good breakfast in the morning to start the day.
A nice touch with this place is the free passes to the Revelstoke Aquatic Centre if you would like a swim as this place is large and really good for a couple of hours playing around.
Only down is if you are a light sleeper is the railway line across the road with the frequent thundering trains going by.
Very impressed overall.

I happen to have stayed here a few years ago and back then the location of it was great and well what a surprise when I booked the room online before I got there and found they had done a complete remodel of the exterior and in the rooms also. From newly done bathrooms to beds and furniture the remodel they did was awesome.
Friendly staff upon checking in and when departing the next morning. The included breakfast is the same generic breakfast at many other motels/hotels now adays with waffles and cereal but none the less a decent start to the day.
One thing I must point out is it is across the street from the CPRail mainline thru town but I with window open only heard a few trains as the rolled thru town. Would I recommend the place to others heck yes.

Just recently spent one night in Revelstoke, and had stayed at the Swiss Chalet before. I only need a single room; non-smoking(the whole motel)...so called them and they had a vacancy. I arrived later in the evening and was greeted professionally. The room was clean and comfortable.
I will stay there again when required. the rate was vey fair, and included breakfast items.

Room Tip: Close to the road, but if you like trains and railroading...this is the place!

We stayed here for one night during a drive through on our way to Vancouver.

The rooms were recently renovated with new beds and a brand new bathroom.
Both my husband and I were quite surprised at how CLEAN the place was.
The room was a little small but for what we needed it for, just to lay our heads down for a nap, it was the perfect size.
The room came with a 32? inch flat screen TV, coffee maker, bar fridge and a table with 2 chairs.

The free breakfast was awesome- cereals, eggs, waffles, toast, lots of hot/cold drinks.
Muffins, fruits. It had everything you would need for a quick breakfast before heading out on the road.

We would defiantly stay here again.

We only stayed there one night as we were only passing through. Our room was small but compact it was all we needed for the two of us. The best sleep ever had in a luxury new bed. Flat screen t.v. on wall, cable, wi-fi and coffee maker in room.
Our room was spotless and very professionally renovated it felt like you were in a new motel. The complimentary breakfast was great. Lots to choose from, we made ourselves fresh waffles with butter and syrup and fresh muffins. There also was eggs,fruit, cereal etc.
That evening we went for Chinese Buffet, I wish I could remember the name of it as there were two Chinese buffet there we selected the second one on that street. A must to try.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. I would have given it a 5 star if it had not been for our small but compact room. I would stay there again but when we usually stay in Revelstoke we have our small dog and they do not allow pets so we have to stay elsewhere usually at the Sandman.

We stayed two nights during ski season. The room was affordable, spacious and clean. The room came with a free pass for the local aquatic centre, and complementary breakfast. The staff was friendly. Couldn't ask for anything more. This will be our "go to" place to stay from this point forward.
