Older type motel. Large rooms. Balcony overlooking the lake. Very pet friendly. Even has poop bags & scoop on lawn. Felt very comfortable in here. Picked this one because of the positive reviews when travelling with pets. I liked the idea of just being able to walk straight outside and not have to negotiate hallways & elevators with the dog....

Stayed here many times while working in the area. Not cleaned very thoroughly, but nice enough place if you get a room further in back. Caretakers keep grounds tidy and green. It's an old motel. Some rooms consider dishes and hot plate in the closet a kitchenette, so be careful. Towels are very old, but pretty clean.

Based on reviews, we sought out this motel. Walked in, got a nice room at the back that was pet friendly for an extra 10. Or so we thought. When we walked in the room was full of smoke smell. The last people there had clearly smoked in the room. Due to severe allergies, we knew immediately we would need... More

We arrived mid-afternoon, desperate to find some dry ice as the frozen food in our cooler was starting to defrost. Co-owner Pat heard me asking her husband, Ted, where I could find some in Williams Lake during my check-in. She offered to let us store our frozen foods in an empty freezer she had in the basement, a miracle!!! The... More

Nice clean room, overlooking the lake, friendly accommodating owners. Had a great nights sleep , much needed after a long drive. Sat out in the landscaped garden and enjoyed the view. Close to amenities food/fuel but far enough back from the main road to be quiet. Will definitely book again when travelling through.

We stayed just one night but found the it very relaxing to sit on the deck overlooking the lake both in the evening and to have breakfast in the morning. The room was well stocked with dishes along with a fridge and microwave Despite being close to the highway, we did not hear any traffic. So nice to have a... More

A really nice old school motel run by some very nice people. My wife got sick so we stayed an extra day and the staff were spectacular. Every room has all you need to cook your own meals including a BBQ. The rooms close to the water are worth the extra money. If you are traveling by Motorcycle as we... More

We had a nice clean room overlooking the lake. Very clean and quiet. Our hosts were friendly. There was a patio and a bbq that we could use. Fridge and microwave were in the room. There were also a few kitchen items we could use. I would stay here again.

An old fashioned kind of motel, somewhat off the main road, so it is quiet. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and the owner friendly and helpful. It was just a way-stop for us on the way to PG, but found the location lovely - and the nearby golf course to be delightful too. It was recommended to us by... More

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...
