    Don't let the drab outside deceive you. The staff was very friendly, and our room had a hardwood type, non carpeted floor, was quiet and surprisingly nice, with a good quality bed, with nice sheets and pillows, and everything was spotless. Next time we are in Vernon we will stay at the Schell Express again.

    Close to downtown, unfortunately noisy due to traffic. Pillows were uncomfortable, no cold water when shower on, only hot.

    The receptionist was friendly and helpful. The room was ok but the bedsheets should be more sanitized. Could smell the smoke on the bed cover.
