As we were leaving Creston, a Mountie informed us that the mountain pass was closed-despite it being June. Yes, it was cold, windy, and really rainy. So we headed for an alternate route--which washed out later that afternoon. So, we were spending the night in Creston until it warmed up and the pass reopened.
We drove by various motels and decided to look at the Sunset. We were pleasantly surprised. The nicest couple was running the place and when they heard we were "stranded", they even lowered the price a few dollars. For $65, we received a room with two beds, a microwave, and small refrigerator. It was clean and up-to-date. As the afternoon went on, the place filled with stranded travelers, but instead of taking advantage of the situation, the owners continued to offer reduced rates.
There are fancier places available in larger towns, but for a clean, affordable stay with great managers, the Sunset Motel was fabulous for us.
