Stayed there with my wife Sept 2012 for two nights. Barriere has only a small handful of motels all were booked for a rodeo event.
Small room very small window, bed was blocked up on pieces of 2" x 6" wood offcuts baseboard heater cover was hanging off and exposing all the wiring most likely a safety hazard. The bathroom fan the filter was clogged with grime it looked like it had never been cleaned in years.
The smell when we walked into the building was not good, it was a smell of a fragrance of some kind which was obviously being used to mask a bad smell.
We did not eat at the restaurant owned the Knights Inn we decided to go into the pub, which we found out was also owned by the knights Inn. We ordered Fish and Chips on the basis that being deep fried at high temperature would be a good thing, wrong! The meal arrived in less than 8 minutes and was not very hot, batter was dark in colour and full of fat which lead me to believe either it had been sitting out a long time, or it was some other diner's leftovers served up again, this was reinforced by the fact that there were two kinds of fries on the plate wedge fries and regular fries, needless to say we left the meal. My wife slept in her clothes.
By comparison we stayed at a bed and breakfast in Castlegar a few weeks later and for $10.00 more we enjoyed a beautiful spotlessly clean room in a five star rated accommodation and we got a gourmet breakfast which the chef/owner cooked right in front of us making it evident that the price per quality was not an issue. A place doesn't have to be new to be enjoyed but there is no excuse for filth and food that is not freshly made.
