Accommodation in Trail is fairly limited, offering two motels, several campgrounds, and one RV park that also accepts tent campers.
The hotel in Trail is located downtown and is the largest accommodation option in town, complete with restaurant, pub, and exercise facilities.
Staying in Trail sometimes requires booking in advance, especially during the summer high season or major events. Additional accommodation options are available in nearby Rossland, 10km/6mi west of town.
