We have to travel all over Cda and the US for dog shows and have so for years. We stay anywhere from Relais & Chateaux properties ($$$$$), Fairmont Hotels ($$$$), Coast Hotels & Best Westerns ($$$) and have never had an issue with our 2 small dogs... never. We are extremely conscientious guests even tidying our room every day and before we leave. We just recently stayed at the Vedder River Inn for a 3-day dog show - they charged a pet fee (all hotels do), but they also took a $200 damage deposit. We weren't worried... our 2 dogs are 20 lbs, quiet, clean, house trained, don't chew, etc. Well we should have been worried. They kept that entire $200 because there was dog hair on the sheets and duvet cover! The manager rationalized that we signed a waiver saying the dogs would not go on the bed, and that pet hair was hard to wash out of the sheets (huh?). I'd be disappointed but understanding if they charged some reasonable fee for the dog-hair-on-bed violation, but $200?!!! It's interesting to me that we've travelled and stayed at hotels with our dogs over 100 times and never had a single note of concern except here. The phrase was used over and over again "the bedding was COVERED in pet hair"... yet no other properties seem to have an issue, nor do we at home. Our dogs' breed is a light shedder - not like some. I can only conclude that this is a horrible cash grab completely disproportionate to the situation. A terribly unscrupulous business practice. DON'T STAY HERE!!!

Hotel's Favourite
Our family has stayed at this hotel several times over the past 3 years. Each time we are treated with kindness and the best of care. Our visits have from 2 to 4 adults and the hotel is right there to ensure we have everything we need and are enjoying our stay. The room is always clean and well equipped. We don't usually have a car as we are right around the corner from family we go there to visit. Everything is close at hand from grocery shopping, fast foods, lounge/liquor/beer outlet and more. The cleaning & office staff are extremely accommodating and even printed our boarding passes on departure. We will surely come back here.

I recently checked in to the Vedder River Inn and noticed that the receptionist made a photo copy of my credit card (front and back) along with my drivers license, which is not only unnecessary, its a security risk and a serious breach of privacy. It should be noted that I frequently stay in hotels and have never had copies of these personal documents made, nonetheless retained by any hotel. When I challenged the receptionist and eventually the manager, they said that it was to prevent fraud and they kept the copies for 6 months. I pointed out that every other hotel compares the photo and name on the drivers license with the name on the credit card and once satisfied they return both to the guest. If you are alright with a hotel having a copy of these documents and assuming the risk of potential identity and credit card fraud, then this is the place for you. This matter is being followed up by the Privacy Commissioner's Office. I gave the hotel a 2 star rating because I thought the room was decent.

I have stayed in this motel over the years, attending dog shows. I am an older person and keep the room tidy. They have a $25 pet fee, which I paid, I assume, for extra cleaning. I returned home to find they charged me an extra $50 for extra cleaning of the room. It smelled of dog they said. Maybe it is because I had a dog? I cancelled my next stay there as I find it quite offensive that they extra billed me. I stay in about 10-12 different motels across BC in a year and I have never had this happen. I am very disappointed.

This is a typical 2 star hotel. No complaints there, however, be cautious when booking. We had to phone to ensure that we could get a pet room and all of a sudden the price went up to $152.00 plus a $25.00 pet fee. When I questioned that, the price dropped to $130.00. I found out later that had we have been able to book on-line, we would have only paid $100.00 per night which is what I would expect to pay for this level of hotel. They may have overcharged in the short term but they’ve lost my business in the long term. I don’t appreciate price gouging and it leads me to question their other business practices. We are periodically in the area to visit family but we’ll find other accommodations in the future.
