I recommend this motel for one night or many nights. I stayed for a month while working nearby and was very comfortable, the back barbecue and fire pit area was a nice addition. The staff were very friendly and did a great job of keeping the room clean and quiet.

The managers here are great - friendly and helpful. I had a main floor room that was spacious and clean. The bed was very comfortable. Great shower. I was only there for one night but would certainly recommend this place.

Stayed here for work. The room was a kitchen unit. It was functional. It's an older hotel but it's clean. The staff are friendly and the pool was heated. Not a place I would vacation at but good for a few nights if you need a base of operations in the area.

This is a 2 story classic roadside motel. The rooms are clean and comfortable an offer a welcome stopping point in Creston. Room rate was reasonable and the facilities well presented and clean. The property has a swimming pool.

Pros - could smoke right outside the room - Eco friendly - Clean bathroom Cons - a/c took forever to work - found used toothpicks, cherry pits, and spider webs between the night stand and the bed - I'm usually not picky about where I sleep but both the beds in our suite were hard as rocks - the bedding...

Clean room, friendly owners and a great playground in the back. We'd definitely stay here again. The only issue is that their pool pump malfunctioned and the water is green. The host said he was draining and fixing it this week (he drained it this evening) so we couldn't swim. But, the community centre has great hours for public swimming...

Clean comfortable accommodations. Nice little kitchenette, and bathroom was updated with a good strong shower. Can't ask for anything more in a motel. Appears they have a pool, but certainly a seasonal thing. Nice play area out back for the kids and picnic tables.

We stayed in Creston overnight on our way through and stayed at the "Skimmerhorn Inn". I am quite particular when it comes to clean and I was very impressed with the over all cleanliness. It is an older motel but is very well maintained and "clean". The lady that checked us in was very accommodating and friendly. We will most...

We were in Creston BC this last weekend and stayed at the Skimmerhorn Inn. The room was very clean and well kept. The beds were firm and well taken care of. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. All around a great facility well run and in an amazing part of the country. I was on business but now...

Our son plays hockey for Creston but we live in Cranbrook & needed to stay in town for a weekend tournament. I have heard of other friends who have stayed before and said it was good so I booked in. We went for a mid priced suite but on arrival had been upgraded to a larger 2 bedroom that had...
