On a stop over back to Vancouver. After a long day driving, we checked in, had dinner at the restaurant next door, then hit the sack. A clean basic room. The front desk clerk was friendly and found us a room (we didn't have a reservation). The place looks a bit run down on the outside, but the room was... More

Rooms are very clean. I work for a hotel and get creeped out easily and found no cleanliness issues. Very basic rooms with standard amenities but great if you are just driving through town and just need a room for the night. Hotel offers free basic continental breakfast too. NO bed bugs. Good location right off highway. We checked a... More

Ok for one night, comfortable bed, coffee making facilities. Hated the sink to wash your hands after you used the toilet was in the bedroom, I suppose you could use the bath though, but not ideal. Fridge in room which unfortunately froze our food we had bought for breakfast (we left too early for breakfast at hotel). We stayed as... More

We were traveling through and had called ahead to make sure this place allowed dogs. We have a very large dog and some places would not accept that. They had no issues with us having him at all. Room was clean and bed was quite comfy. We would definitely stay here again if we were heading through the area. The... More

If you are only looking for a night or two, this is a great stopover for the price. Room was one of the cleanest we've experienced and front desk staff very friendly and helpful. King bed was comfortable, in room coffee and fridge with light breakfast included. Dozed off to the soothing sounds of a running stream. Bathroom amenities basic... More

We were traveling through and did not need all the perks. Tired and needed good sleep. Room was clean. Bed was one of the best we have found. Good night and on our way refreshed the next day. We would definitely recommend. We will stay here again.

As in the title - generally OK, though the water pressure under the shower was hardly satisfactory and the WiFi was struggling terribly. As in the title - generally OK, though the water pressure under the shower was hardly satisfactory and the WiFi was struggling terribly.

We were going to Williams lake 4 Christmas and it was excellent. There is a restraunt ( husky house ) within walking distance of it. We liked it so much that on our way back to Alberta, we decided to stay there again. The manager accidentally put us in a room that hadn't been cleaned, but they put us in... More

We have stayed at this motel a couple of times, and the previous manager always treated us so well, always made us feel welcome and at home. Things have gone down hill the last few months and the people behind the desk are rude, and not friendly. We always have used the hot tub - Shawn always helped me down... More
