Stay Different. Stay real.
So long stuffy-and-staid hotels! We’re the pint-sized British Columbia hotel chain with a big personality. Here, elevators get transformed into hot-air balloon rides, “Do Not Disturb” magnets make you LOL, and rubber-duck shuttle vans are the new mode of transportation. Rubber ducks reside in every room for guests to take in the bath or take home with them at the end of their stay. The emphasis is always on care, comfort and fun for both guests and our Accent family members.
An accent on people

Diversity and inclusion are a constant topic in HR and recruitment, and a key priority for us at the hotels. We have a connected company culture where every employee feels accepted, valued, and has a sense of belonging. That’s what being in our Fam-Jam is all about! I love being part of an empathetic workplace, where everyone’s feelings are valued and acknowledged.
Caring is the word I use to describe Accent Inns. This company cares about the community and they care about the health and safety of their employees and guests. Most of all, they care enough to make sure that I KNOW that I am valued, that they will ALWAYS have my back and that they actually care about me as an individual, not just another employee. That is why I love working at Accent Inns.
I was really excited to hand out the gift cards. The workers reactions were priceless! They couldn’t believe that they were being recognized and it was so nice to do this for them. It made us all feel amazing to thank these grocery store workers that have done so much for us over the pandemic.
When Variety families stay with us, we see the kids, their families and we get to know them. Unfortunately, some are losing their battle. Back in 2010 we had the very first Variety family stay with us. The girl sadly, after a hard fight, lost her battle with cancer at just three-years-old. We received a wonderful message from her grandmother recently thanking us for how we treated her. Relationships like that is why I hold our relationship with Variety so near and dear. My view is that although you can’t take their illness away, you can make them smile even just for that moment.
Many of our employees take the bus every day and care about their drivers. BC Transit drivers are COVID heroes. They’ve been delivering service throughout the pandemic to get British Columbians where they need to go. We wanted to show them love, appreciation and thanks!
The crazy part about this fund is that I didn’t have to ask or apply. My boss knows me and cares about me enough to actually know how I am doing. When she called me to tell me that they knew we were having a tough time and offered to pay for my daughter’s tutoring, I was taken back by emotions. My daughter (age 14) moved up three reading grades in just over three months. I genuinely love Accent Inns in so many ways and cannot be more thankful to work for a group of amazing people that live their values every day.
I love working here because of how evident it is that the company really looks out for our best interests. Investing in our personal development, providing ample benefits that are too plentiful to list, and truly offering a give and take relationship to create an amazing work life balance! This pond is full of stellar ducks I’m so grateful to swim with!
I love working here because I work with the Ultimate Hugger – the staff are so supportive and fun and makes work not seem like work!
Why I love working here: great staff, awesome workplace culture, sweet benefits and lots of parties and celebrations!
I love working here because of Mandy Farmer. As a CEO, I feel she truly cares about each and every employee that works for her company. She is always excited to see us and talk with us. Knowing someone who cares that much about us in her position is amazing.
I love working here because of the family atmosphere we receive from Management. I have worked here for a very long time, and I have always felt cared for and taken care of by this company. What this company does for its employees is something I have never seen before.
I love this company because there is room for growth and opportunities. I have gone from working in laundry up to management in 3.5 years!
I love working here because of our culture. I love how open management, VP’s, and even Mandy is to suggestions and ideas no matter who it is from. I also love the benefits of working here whether it be the great deals at other properties or to be able to give back to our community, in a fun way.
I feel like Accent Inns is my home because I can open-up to everyone and it feels so much like a family (more than my own family!) There is no discrimination, and I feel comfortable being myself which makes me feel truly free.
It’s a very welcoming environment where you can be yourself and there are no judgments. Everybody gets along with one another and it’s a sense of community where everyone supports each other.
I love the great team that I work with and the values we all live by. I love that we give back to the community and do fun initiatives as a team. I love learning new things within my role and supporting my team everyday.
For me, Accent Inns had my back while I was off for personal reasons for 2 years and I really appreciate it. We are treated like family. I also love that we are always innovating and constantly upgrading our standards and keeping relevant.
I like that we celebrate all the different cultures we have here. The scheduling is flexible which makes it easy to have a work-life balance and still enjoy coming to work. The work perks are great, and I especially appreciate the ‘Live Your Best Life’ program.
I love how diverse this company is and how I get to work and interact with lots of interesting people. The work perks are amazing, and I feel so cared about and genuinely feel like the company wants us to feel happy and loved.
Being part of this team is a great privilege. I started in the housekeeping department and was given the opportunity to take on a job as one of the front desk agents – completely out of my comfort zone. It’s been an awesome opportunity and I’m just loving it!
I enjoy working here because of the people that I meet. The staff is very helpful, and management is always there for us. Everyday I am doing something different, whether that is helping a guest bring stuff to their room, learning how to work TV’s or helping elderly guests with their luggage. Even if I am having a bad day, this place always puts a smile on my face when I walk through the door.
I feel valued with my contributions. There is so much room to grow, and I have got to learn so many different positions that allow me to continuously develop and build strong relationships. I love the people I work with which makes every day so much fun, but also have a great work-life balance.
