Don't let the drab outside deceive you. The staff was very friendly, and our room had a hardwood type, non carpeted floor, was quiet and surprisingly nice, with a good quality bed, with nice sheets and pillows, and everything was spotless. Next time we are in Vernon we will stay at the Schell Express again.
