Camaray Motel seems to be the only motel in this small town and it does not even show up in most online hotel booking sites. To make a reservation, just call the friendly folks at the hotel. We did not expect much from this motel and we were pleasantly surprised by it.
Even though the hotel was non-smoking, our first room smell of smoke. We did not have any trouble changing to a different room which did not have the smoke smell. I think the problem is that some people smoke just outside their rooms so the smell drift into the rooms.
Our room was clean and it was big enough for 2 adults and 2 children. There was a fridge, a microwave and a TV with ample channels. The shower and bathroom was clean, the beds comfortable and they even have a DVD player in the room. DVDs are available for checkout from the office. This motel also has a swimming pool. One thing we found lacking was insufficient power outlets for charging electronics.
As others have indicated, parking at the hotel can be a issue when the hotel is fully booked. I was told that they have 40+ rooms and 20+ parking spots. We did not find parking to be a problem though because there were lots of street parking, which seems to be safe and nearby.
There a several restaurants along Main Street near the hotel. Several blocks north is a Subway and Prince's Center. The latter is a grocery store with a deli with OK cheap food. Breakfast special is $2.99.
If Camaray Motel is full, your other options are:
Eden Valley Ranch cabins about 10 miles east
Hotels in Osoyoos, BC, Canada, about 7 miles north
Hotels in Tonasket about 17 miles south
Overall, we were happy with our stay at Camaray and we will not hesitate to stay there again. It provides clean, basic accommodation at an inexpensive price.
