River-Rafting Seniors
We knew this was not a full-service hotel, as we also knew Lytton was a 'no-frills' area, however, even the wifi was good, quick & efficient & all rooms were occupied. But, the reason for staying here was the white-water rafting we were doing at Kumsheen Rafting Resort the next day and if they stayed there, there were no ensuite bathrooms! We'll go again and we'll definitely stay at Totem Motel again. I would give it, & its location a definite 4.5out of 5. We enjoyed a glass or 2 of wine each evening on the back lawns, with friends staying here as well.

Clean basic old school motel
We have stayed at the Totem many times over the years and it has never changed. It's clean, basic, safe and in a great location in town. Not fancy and Internet on wifi was unusable. Paid 75 a night and that's a fair price.

The owner was kind and the room had a kitchenette. There is a train track that runs right behind the motel but it was very affordable.

Nice classic little hotel above Fraser River
Spent the day hiking across the river from town, stayed overnight in Lytton at the Totem Hotel. The hotel is a very short walk to everything in town and a few blocks from the trail we took across the Fraser.

Nice cottage-styled hotel
We, three adults and two young kids, stayed at their family suite, two rooms with a kitchen, for one night. It was a pleasant stay. Although the hotel was old, it had its unique history and lovely cottage style. We especially liked the dinning nook in the kitchen looking out the lawn area along the Fraser River. We may go back there for a two to three-day get-away trip.

Quaint but nice and clean, would stay again.
My girlfriend and I stayed here for one night, before beginning a rafting trip the next day. We arrived late (11 pm, but we had called ahead) and were able to check in with no problems (late arrivals can be annoying for small town/business owner/operators, as they need to sleep too!) Room was a quaint little cabin with kitchenette. Old but surprisingly clean and well maintained! Desk staff was very nice (even at the late hour).
