The Good. The Bad. The Ugly And the Kind.

“Sharing some acts of kindness and hoping for more.”

2021 Merritt Flood in British Columbia Canada – The community of Merritt BC Canada, has witnessed devastating forest fires, and floods in the last year. It seems this year, 2021, Merritt, and parts of the Nicola Valley, have gone through a merry-go-round of evacuation alerts, and evacuation orders. Some residence left. Some stayed behind. All have their reasons. The end result is a population in a community who are tired, worn out, confused, scared, or optimistic and, yes, some are angry too.

The 2021 Merritt Flood

During the 2021 Merritt Flood and Forest Fires, tragedy happened on all levels of devastation. There is no ignoring that. There are no benefits in comparing one heartache to another. They all hurt. Some more than others. Some life changing. I wish I could turn back time. Make this all go away. I wish my friends had their homes back. Smiling and laughing again would be another wish. I wish living in Merritt was like it use to be. Unfortunately I am no Genie. No lamp to rub just a water bottle to fill. All I have are big wishes with little answers. But I do have hope.

My Super Power

I take pride in my listening and observation skills. So, let me share my take on that. We are all our own master on what we decide to listen too and observe. We can take it all in, flip it upside down, make what we want of it. Some of us process the positive and spit out the negative or vice-versa. But what you process is up to you. Hence why, with all the sadness, I have decided to share some “warm and fuzzy” stories,  sending out some positive vibes to the community of Merritt, Princeton, Abbotsford and to our First Nation friends. I would like to share some of the kind and positive gestures I witnessed along this ugly road we travelled called the 2021 Merritt Flood in the City of Merritt BC Canada. 

8 Acts of Kindness

Because of the nature of my work online globally, and locally with Experience Nicola Valley, I see the good, the bad and the ugly of the internet. There are many sources online of nasty, negative with a big dose of nasty conversations. We all have a choice of which lens we choose to look through for every situation life presents us. Me? Well… when it comes to the Merritt Flood I choose hope. We need more stories of good people doing good things during these challenging times. Hence, why I am going to focus on the positive stories and share some “acts of kindness” I and my friends experienced during the 2021 Merritt flood.

“No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.”
Aesop

(1) ESS and Red Cross

The evacuation had problems on many levels. Remember, no one saw this coming. Yes, there were warning signs and reports and white papers. But…  no one saw it coming on November 15th, 2021. No meteorologists, engineer, politician or scientist told us to buckle in for a massive rain storm and possible flooding. Many of us went to bed the night before expecting to wake up to another normal Monday. Well that didn’t happen. The evacuation order caught us all by surprise. Therefore people slipped through the cracks. Communication was suspect. Volunteers were stretched at ESS and the  Red Cross.  Should I stay or should I go? Yes, the process was not perfect by any means. News flash! Nothing is perfect in a blender of chaos.  

(2) Volunteers

I know why it is tough to get volunteers at times. Just watch how some people treat them, like it was their fault. All they are doing is following direction or the lack of.  A big thank you to the volunteers for taking care of us with the best tools at their disposal. I know you did your best  and you did not design the system nor the process. I also know you are a volunteer, on your time, to make our challenges as comfortable as possible. So thank you to all the volunteers in Kelowna, Kamloops, Salmon Arm, 100 Mile House, Sicamous, Penticton and those in Merritt helping the community get back on its feet again. And if I missed anybody, my apologies. But thank you again!

(3) Let Me See The Light

The 2021 Merritt Flood was a sight I would not wish on anyone. Everything changed in a blink of an eye. Before we knew it, we were evacuated and in a hotel room. Everything was new again including an Optometry Office and a LensCrafters, next door in Orchard Park Mall in Kelowna BC Canada. I needed glasses for the first time and I did not have my prescription with me. But I did have time.  Dr. Keevn Otte heard I was an evacuee from Merritt and booked me in and redid my prescription at no charge! Then Ben, at LensCrafters, set me up with my new lens and frames and he too gave me a break on price, on top of the Black Friday Special. I was seeing with my eyes, the kindness of people. 

(4) Green Plate of Hospitality

Not sure of the back story on this one but it goes something like this. Someone at our hotel, the Kanata, was out in public one day sharing how eating out all the time was getting old. Someone, was listening in. Who we do not know? The next morning 50 trays of vegetables and dip arrived at the lobby in our hotel from an unknown source, someone who did not want to be recognized, but did it out of the goodness of their heart. To that mystery person if you are reading this – thank you for your kind gesture.  Loved the mini tomatoes and green peas.

(5) Class is in Session

Have you heard of the story of Ewa Olguin, an early childhood educator in Merritt, BC, Canada? If you have not, Ewa was evacuated from Merritt like many of us. At her hotel she recognized many of the kids were from the “Strong Start” Program back in Merritt. Her place of employment I believe. In seeing the children, away from a regular routine and their homes, Ewa decided to start a 3 hour class every morning with the kids reading, playing and learning.  Thank you Ewa!

(6) Is That To Eat In or To Go?

As we stated at the beginning of this list, the littlest gesture can make a difference. How about just smiling. When you eat at one spot for days on days they get to know you. In our case it was Boston Pizza. It did not take a lot of time for them to recognize our orders and to begin greeting us with smiles, and conversations when we ate in or picked up. Thank you for feeding many of us from the 2021 Merritt flood. 

(7) Experience Nicola Valley Pivot

When people are scared, and living in a mist of confusion, information is the currency of choice. I watched as councillors were inundated daily with phone calls, text and emails numbering in the hundreds asking questions and seeking answers. Being on the front lines of the evacuation, mixed in amongst the local population, every day and hour, your sleeves get tugged on a lot.  And yet, the questions were often 2 steps ahead of the answers available to councillors. They could only share what they knew and as information was being released. But they knew communication is the currency of choice during a disaster. So they stepped up. First to video, Experience Nicola Valley was proud to pivot their platform, so they could bring daily video updates, as need be, from Councillor White, Luck and Etchart. And then… some councillors met with the evacuees in the hotel lobby daily for briefings and updates as well. It took some guts to put their face out there. But they were humble, caring and doing what was right updating us the best they can. Thank you!

(8) Friends, Family and Business Partners

When the news hit all over Canada of the 2021 Merritt Flood, I could not believe the emails that flooded my in-box from people checking in on us from all around the world. Some I have not heard from in years and a few in decades. It was a moment-of-truth to see so many people checking in on my Brother and I.  We are so fortunate to have good people surrounding us and supporting us. Thank you and we are grateful for your kindness, support and friendship.

Social Media

If social media is your only go-too for information, well then there might be issues with that? Working in that field, I  understand the pros and cons of a platform with little rules and high engagement. It is a platform which makes its rules on the fly based on all sides of human nature, good and bad. And there is good and bad. Do not get me wrong, social media, is a beautiful thing. I have seen lives changed for the better when social media is used positively.  Social media is a treasure for small businesses to get their message out. To me it is an art form. However, at times, it is also a bloody battlefield where communication is won or lost. There is one big caveat to the social media battlefield :

“Bad news travels at the speed of light; good news travels like molasses.”
Tracy Morgan

Together, when we start commenting, and sharing and posting and tagging each other with positive stories, good news will travel faster. It takes a movement, to create a message. 

Winter Adventures coming soon to the Nicola Valley. We are open for winter. 

I Choose Hope

I have witnessed how the community is divided along many lines because of the 2021 Merritt floods and forest fires. A disaster will do that to any community. Emotions will run rampant. Loses are off the map. But I have hope because the overall dominating factor in this conundrum are the people of Merritt. They are my baseline in the equation of building back better. Many are my friends. I have been around Merritonians long enough to know they are a strong and good people. Merritt will be back. I will do everything I can to be part of that re-awakening.  

Stay safe. Be kind.

Merritt BC Hotels –  Motels and Inn Accommodations In The Nicola Valley

Hotel places to stay in Merritt BC Canada

“When your community is a central base camp for year round adventures in the region it sure helps that you can provide hotel accommodations servicing all price points. And Merritt Hotels do just that.” 

 

Merritt BC hotels, motels and inns are just some of the accommodations available to visitors who come to explore, visit or stay the Nicola Valley for adventure, business, events, shelter and/or just to connect with family. However… what some may forget, is that our Merritt BC Canada hotels, motels and inns are also community ambassadors and sanctuaries for evacuated families during forest fire alerts and for contractors on infrastructure and Provincial economic development projects.

Therefore, it is also important the contributions of other accommodations in Merritt BC including the campgrounds, vacation homes, cottages, fishing resorts, guest ranches and bed and breakfasts. Many of which, already, have an Experience Nicola Valley blog written about them. That was then. This is now. Today,  we are discussing some of our larger accommodations suitable for events, corporate events, emergency shelter and contract workers.

Merritt BC Hotels – Motels – Inns

Times have changed. Therefore, the rules for operating a hotel, motel and inn have changed because of COVID 19 , climate change and travel habits. Consequently, hotel accommodations have to adjust to a changing environment. Nicola Valley hotels have to practice and encourage physical distancing, as well as, put in place a solid game plan when it comes to safety and cleaning protocols. Moreover, many of the Merritt BC hotels have implemented safety protocols and physical distancing measures. Most importantly, it is always best to phone or visit the website of your selected hotel destination to check in on the exact measures they are taking. However we are not here to discuss safety protocols and community ambassadors. We are here to share with you the selection of  larger hotels and motels operating in and around Merritt, BC, Canada for your next visit to the valley. 

We Have the Bed for You

Merritt hotels, inns and motel accommodations are unique in their own way. Therefore it is easy to come to the conclusion that there is a pretty good selection of hotel rooms and/or self contained suites in the Nicola Valley. In short there are economical, as well as,  high end suites where comfort, amenities and luxury are your selling features. No matter your needs and wants, the Nicola Valley hotel accommodations are able to satisfy your comfort levels and pricing preferences.

Above All It Is Location 

When it comes down to price point, Merritt has you covered as well. And if it comes down to amenities… the Nicola Valley has got that one covered too. Location? Got it covered. In short we can find you the right room in the right spot at the right time. For example there are hotels and motels at the top of the hill within walking distances to restaurants, coffee shop, liquor store, a pub,  and big box stores.  On the other hand, down the hill, there are Merritt hotels and motels near Downtown Merritt shopping, restaurants, pubs, retail stores and coffee shops. See… we got you covered.

Last Minute Hotel Goodies

If you forget something, don’t worry. Do what I did. Drop by the Snack Bar located next to the reception desk and pick up what you need. I noticed it was open 24 hours a day and sold a variety of items including juices, soft drinks, yogurt, chips, candy, and assorted personal care items. I loaded up and headed back to my room. Obviously, at this time, it was the right hotel for me out of all the places to stay in Merritt BC. 

Comfy Quarters 

My room had all the comforts of home –  comfortable bed, fluffy pillows, warm comforter, and plush towels. Here we go with the pillows again. Even the hand cream was worth writing home about! The best feature is how quiet the room was – something I can honestly say is not a feature in most hotels.

Highly Recommended Places to Stay in the Nicola Valley

Merritt BC Canada Hotel Accommodation

When it comes to places to stay in Canada, including any Merritt Accommodation,  cleanliness is the most important part when booking a room. The Best Western Plus, a 5 star Hotel in Merritt BC, Canada has passed with flying colours.

First Impressions of Merritt Accommodations

When you pull up to the modern classy designed building you know you have made the right booking. The glass doors open into the hotel lobby, you see a cozy seating area with a fireplace, a stocked hot beverage bar, and fresh baked goodies. Everything is so shiny and clean. It is like a downtown New York hotel right here in Merritt BC, Canada.

Merritt Accommodations Convenience Store

Convenience store has a bit of everything.

The check in clerk is super friendly and makes you feel so welcome. She checks you in, answers all the questions you have about the area, and points you in the direction of the little onsite store.  This is an added convenience, and if you are like me, you have forgotten at least one item at home. 

My Best Western Room

You open the door to your room and “oh my gosh”, it is even better than you imagined.  THOSE BEDS LOOKED LIKE BIG FLUFFY PILLOWS!  Anoop, the Merritt accommodation manager and his family actually spent years researching sleep systems to get perfection.

The beds looked like giant pillows.

Details Make A Difference

Everything is perfect, right down to the final detail of a nice little separate sink outside the bathroom. I don’t know about you but filling my coffee pot from the bathroom tap has always made me a bit uneasy. 

Merritt Accommodations Best Western Amenities

 When I am away from home I want better than home. I want to feel like I am away from my daily duties, all the normal stress and I want to feel like I am being catered to.  Spending hours in the pool, dipping once in a while into the hot tub, and then going back to the room to watch great TV channels and chill was perfect. There is also a fully furnished exercise room complete with many machines to keep your exercise routine in place while you are away.

Pool Hot Tub

Time to relax in the pool and hot tub.

Business Centre

It was exciting to see a nice size private business area complete with laptops right on the first floor. I could sneak away and do a few minutes catch up on business, ( don’t tell anyone). Down the hall from the breakfast area and table seating are some beautiful conference rooms complete with audio visual equipment.

Merritt Canada accommodations

If you would like a quiet, squeaky-clean, remodelled suite with full kitchen facilities at a reasonable price, then you are looking for “Merritt Canada accommodations” at the Knights Inn!

At The Knights InnMerritt Canada Accommodations

Last week a friend visited from out of town and I had no room at my place to put her up. I hunted for Merritt Canada accommodations and we decided to stay at the Knights Inn. Not only was it a good deal, it was fun visit too! The kitchen had a full-size stove, fridge and sink, plenty of space and was stocked with dishes and cutlery as well as pots and pans. The cupboards contained ample crockery, salt and pepper and, steak lovers take note, even a container of steak spice!

A Fun Evening

We sat at the table in our suite, drank tea, ate cookies and played a game involving cards and little sticks that I have never seen before. We had a lot of fun and plenty of laughs. I lost the game due to the distraction of my friend’s chocolate chip cookies! At least, that’s my story and I’m sticking to it1

Comfy Beds

We slept well that night, in fact, we both slept in! My friend, who claims she is very fussy about her bed and doesn’t sleep well in strange places, overslept by an hour. My bed was just as comfortable because I didn’t even hear the alarm!

A suite deal

“Merritt Canada accommodations” are easy to find in our small city but where does a family find something affordable? At the Knights Inn, that’s where! Not only will you save money on the accommodations, you can also save money by cooking your own meals in the well-equipped kitchen! This is a big plus for families! Now, take the bundle that you saved and spend it on lots of fun things. We have lots of things to do in Merritt and the Nicola Valley. Check out my blogs on the Aquatic Centre, walks in Merritt and parks in Merritt, ADD LINKS to name a few. You will enjoy these and so will your kids!

 Knights Inn- accommodations for both the traveller and the visitor

If you are a weary traveller just passing through and need a room for the night, stop here! Have a hot shower and get a good night’s sleep in a comfy bed. The next morning, hustle the few blocks to town for a hearty breakfast then be on your way again, refreshed and happy.

A Longer Stay

Are you visiting Merritt for several days? The Knights Inn will suit your needs too. Take a suite with a well- equipped, spotless kitchen if you enjoy cooking your own meals, or even just some of them. Or perhaps you want to surprise a friend with a special dinner. Maybe you prefer a room without a kitchen because you want a vacation from cooking! Whatever you want, it’s waiting for you at the Knights Inn!

Big changes at the Knights InnMerritt Canada AccommodationsMerritt Canada Accommodations

Owner Max Jiao, manager Kevin Ellefson and all his staff worked hard to make the Knights Inn, as Kevin puts it ” your home away from home”. Everything is very clean but in addition, Kevin tells me, “The employees take pride in their work”. It shows in the cleanliness of the accommodations they provide and in the improved reputation and attention the Knights Inn is receiving! This is all part of what makes the Knights Inn unique.

Remodelling the Knights Inn

A big part of these changes started with the remodelling. Some suites and rooms were rebuilt and redecorated while others were totally gutted and redone! It all looks very fresh and new. In addition to all this, there is a large green space in front of the suites for patrons to enjoy in good weather. Good job!
