Go horse or go home?

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE       APRIL 1, 2014

bbyEquip rooms for horses, BC hotel group says, and lower the stress of separation

VICTORIA, BC – Accent Inns is once again at the forefront of innovation in the highly-competitive world of hospitality, with the addition of one more offering to their already-specialized services: equi-accommodation, aka the provision of rooms for people and horses, together. For many years, the BC-based, family-owned hotel group catered to guests travelling with their pets, their bicycles and motorcycles. Now, horses – whether for show, racing, riding or just companionship – will be shown the same outstanding service that travellers have come to count on at Accent Inns since 1986. (more…)

Motorcycle Friendly Hotel Manager Races in the 46th Baja 1000 #2

Thursday, January 30th, 2014

photo 2Pre running the course is so important for the race.  It allows you to see all the hazards before race day so you can ride your fastest when it matters.  The course also changes so much during the 2 weeks leading up to the race as you have 300 plus vehicles doing the same thing as you.  So nice sandy roads turn into torn up, whooped out, silt infested trails.  Good times.

Get your tourist hat and your walking shoes on!

Tuesday, July 23rd, 2013

Stanley ParkVancouver is a fun city, there is always lots going on, and some of the free activities include Stanley Park, a stroll along the picturesque sea wall or a picnic in the park (just watch out for those sneaky squirrels). When in Vancouver, a must-see is Granville Island. There’s so many unique shops and you’ll want to visit the Public market for fresh fruits and vegetables. There’s also several delis and restaurants – slurp Japanese noodles, grab a slice of pizza, nosh on Greek gyros or sit on the wharf and enjoy Pajo’s Fish & Chips (the best). Oh and don’t get me started on all the many, many yummy sweet treats “to die for”. (more…)

Travelling By RV in BC – A Sales Manager’s Perspective

Wednesday, June 26th, 2013

Accent Inns Sales Team – L-R Kim Jones, Donna Price, Helen Wright & Karen England

When you work for a hotel company you get used to customers coming to your place of business so it was a very nice change for the Accent Inns Sales Team to visit some of our customers at their place of business. We also had the chance to experience what many of our RV rental guests do as they leave our hotel at Vancouver Airport to take on the trip to northern BC and beyond.

On May 8th 4 of our Sales Team and 4 of our ducks took to the road in 2 campers from Fraserway RV Rentals.  We travelled from Vancouver to Whitehorse visiting a number of towns along the way.  What we discovered it that we live in a very big province filled with amazing scenery and incredibly friendly towns and villages.  (more…)

Midnight Sun Golf Tournament

Thursday, March 21st, 2013

Ok, so teeing off at 6:30 pm seems kinda late for most serious golfers, but if you are going to play in Air North’s “Midnight Sun” Golf Tournament, then your shot-gun start time is 6:30pm and don’t be late!

A few years ago,  my colleague Donna Price and myself were invited by Air North to play in their Midnight Sun Golf Tournament and represent our company Accent Inns.- We jumped at the opportunity, and  we both agreed “it’s a once in a lifetime experience to be coming off the golf course at 1:30am when it’s still light out!”  Usually held around summer solstice June 21st,  when dusk is sometime after 11 pm,  you can still see your score card (unfortunately).

They get a full turn out every year at Mountainview Golf Course,  just outside of Whitehorse where Jeff Wiggins (originally from Saskatchewan) is the CPGA Head Pro.  Jeff kindly warned us not to go too far into the bush looking for a ball because late in the evening is when the critters come out and some are friendly and some not The rules are fairly relaxed anyway with lots of the local beer (Chilkoot lager, Lead dog and Yukon gold) being consumed.   The party starts when everyone is off the course around 1:30am with prizes, a sumptuous buffet and … well yes….more beer.  We called for a taxi at 3:00am to go back into Whitehorse to our hotel and it was still light out. It felt strange going to bed when it was light out but I guess you get used to it when you live in the land of the Midnight Sun…as Robert Service said in one of his poems “there are strange things done in the midnight sun”.
