At Accent Inns we love animals, we welcome them into our hotels and proudly support the BC SPCA – so much so that every time a pet stays at one of our hotels and we collect the pet fee and we give the organization $1 on their behalf. Approximately 4,000 animals stay at an Accent Inns hotel every year, so this means a welcome contribution wends its way to BC SPCA. We also regularly partner with, and promote, special campaigns in support of this amazing organization. (more…)

It’s sometimes hard to look for ways to spend your bonus day off, with or without the family. Maybe watch an entire season of a TV show you’ve been meaning to get into. Now’s your chance to catch up. Close the blinds, order some pizza and settle in for a deliciously lazy day on the couch. (more…)

To complete the entrée each episode is spiced with the perfect amount of humor. (more…)
