When we travel, we like to try to stay at independent "roadside motels", reminiscent of the 50's and 60's. This place was all of that and more. Cute little rooms, with a sun-deck overlooking a smallish lake.. BBQs were outside the door, for your use. I think one BBQ for each two rooms. Rooms were provided with dishes, utensils, dishcloths...

Quesnel Cycling 530s first stop en route to BC Children's Hospital from Quesnel. We arrived at Lakeside Motel only to find out that the Motel had donated 3 large Lakeview rooms to BC Children's Hospital cycling for Pediatrics cycling team. The rooms were very big, comfortable & cozy. The Motel was very quiet and we enjoyed having the opportunity to... More

The room was large, the bathroom has everything we needed, the bed was really comfy but there was just something about this room that was weird can't put my finger on it. There was only one option for dinner. Still we came away with good memories of Williams Lake.

There are a few choices to stay here in this decent sized town. But if you want shabby chic charm, with great views of the lake rather than the run of the mill chain hotels, this is the place. It's located just about the middle of town on the lake side of the hwy. The room was older, but clean,... More

We decided to stay here because the rates were reasonable compared to other motels in the area. Not that we are cheap but we do pay our way around and planned on staying in Williams Lake for a few days. The front desk clerk was very friendly and helpful. They have rooms facing the highway so we asked for one... More

The first time I stayed here it was amazing. I had my dog with me and the woman hooked us up with a room. The room reminded me of my childhood. It was clean, quiet, and extremely comforting. It reminded me of being at the cottage. I had the best sleep and every time I travel through Williams lake it... More

Although from the highway, looks may be deceiving, but we loved this little motel. The room was large and very clean. It was a little old-fashioned, but it was quaint. The view out of the large picture window was fantastic overlooking the lake.

My boyfriend and I stayed here on our way to Alaska and it was the cutest little spot. Very friendly front desk person and beautiful gardens and they allow pets. WHich was great for us as we have a big Shepherd dog. Really reasonably priced, I think it was $70 for 2 people and no charge for the dog. Our... More

First of all,the woman who checked us in was pretty snarky. While the motel does overlook the lake, the outsides of the units are very run down, paint is peeling, evrything looks 100 years old, it is not attractive at all! The inside of our unit was clean but dark, dated, and kind of creepy. The night we stayed there... More
