About Us

So long stuffy-and-staid hotels, hello Accent Inns—the pint-sized British Columbia hotel chain with a big personality. Here, elevators get transformed into hot-air balloon rides, breezeways become hopscotch courts, and rubber-duck shuttle vans are the new mode of transportation. Moving further into “fowl” territory, a rubber duck resides in every room and suite for guests to take in the bath or take home with them at the end of their stay.

With five locations in Victoria, Vancouver Airport (Richmond), Burnaby, Kelowna, and Kamloops, this family owned-and-operated group of hotels is perfectly situated when travelling in southern BC. And with modern, spacious accommodations, a host of surprisingly free amenities you’d normally expect to pay for, and genuinely happy staff who always go the extra mile kilometre, Accent Inns puts the accent on great service, great individuality, great everything.
 

How We Became Us

Accent Inns is a boastfully BC company that has been proudly owned and operated by the Farmer family since 1986. Mandy Farmer took over the role of president and CEO of Accent Inns from her father, Terry Farmer, in 2008. Mandy brings a focus on innovating Accent Inns for both the fun and function of it. From the humour that is sprinkled through everything we do, to being the most bike-friendly and pet-friendly hotel chain in Canada, what Mandy does is ensure we are different…in a good way.

But if you ask Mandy what really makes us different, she’ll tell you it’s our amazing staff—most of whom have been here for over 10 years. We’re not coworkers, we’re family. And we have the most fun as possible at work. (You could say we put the “fun” in “dysfunctional family”. And it all comes down to creating the experiences that make our guests happy and keeps them, and us, coming back.

 

Stay different. Stay real.
