Get Stoked for the Stoke Hotel in Revelstoke BC

Lobby, The Stoke Hotel, Revelstoke BC Canada

With a national park and a ski mountain on either side of town, Revelstoke in eastern British Columbia, Canada, draws visitors who love the outdoors.

And if you’re coming to Revelstoke for outdoor adventure, you might want a no-frills lodging with easy access to both Mount Revelstoke National Park and Revelstoke Mountain Resort, which brings skiers to challenge North America’s greatest vertical terrain, at 5,620 feet.

The Stoke Hotel, a revamped roadside motel on the edge of town, isn’t fancy, but it’s got style, and as my daughter and I found when we overnighted in Revelstoke on a recent road trip from Vancouver to the Canadian Rockies, it’s well-located for exploring the area.

Here’s the scoop:

From the outside, The Stoke looks like what it once was, a basic roadside motel. Inside, though, there’s a lot more panache.

The guest rooms are outfitted with a mix of old furnishings, like old wooden cabinets, and newer pieces, like the bright blue metal chairs that accent the rooms. You can choose from one queen, two queen, or one king bed configurations.

The rooms all have interesting wall art, like this photo that makes you feel as if you’re disappearing into the forest.

In-room amenities include coffeemakers, microwaves, and mini-fridges, as well as wall-mounted flat-screen TVs and complimentary Wi-Fi, which works well.

A minor complaint is that sound travels within the building. From our room, right next to the lobby, we could hear other guests going up and down the stairs; choosing a unit farther from the lobby and stairways might avoid that problem. The property is located near the railroad tracks as well, and you may hear the trains passing through.

Upstairs, the breakfast room maintains the mix of old and new, with a wall mural left over from the property’s previous incarnation, paired with bright turquoise tables and booths. Breakfast is a simple, Continental style. If you want more interesting morning fare, you can head for any of several in-town cafes, including friendly Dose Coffee.

Overall, The Stoke Hotel is a funky, good-value base for your Revelstoke adventures. So get out there and explore!
