Be Active This Spring Break!
Spring break is rapidly approaching and for many parents and children it’s a time to travel to visit family, enter sports tournaments, or go to camp. If you are heading to a tournament, visiting friends, or relatives and need a place to stay check out one of our Accent Inns locations in Kamloops, Kelowna, Richmond, Burnaby, and Victoria – we offer great value and comfortable and clean accommodation.
We’re huge sports fans at Accent Inns and welcome all sports teams to our hotels as they go out there and give it their all. We’ll be cheering you on and ready to give you a warm welcome on your return.
If you’ve yet to figure out what exciting adventures you want to sign your children up for, here is a smattering of interesting and adventurous offerings from around B.C. along with the dates of spring break in each location.
