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

We stayed as an unplanned stopover on our way back to Calgary. The lady at the desk was very friendly, and although it was in the middle of a long weekend we had our choice of 2 different rooms. Our choice was perhaps not the best as it was one of the older rooms, but it was clean. The bed... More

Nice motel with very comfy beds. Has a hottub but not very hot - could turn the temperate up. A light breakfast is offered - toast and cereal. They said muffins are usually offered by they ran out due to the long weekend. Great view of mountains as well.

It wasn't a bad place to stay. We got pretty much the last room so had to haul our bags around the back. Definately nothing fancy but it was quiet and the price was right. Plus it was easy to find since it was on the highway.

This motel deserves the lowest possible rating. I was part a car club with 22 cars that booked this property staying 07/21 through 07/23/2013. The couple that "manages" this property, have no business being in the hospitality industry or any position that requires public contact. I can only conclude that ownership, is just as cheap on staff as "renovations." Upon... More

I had the pleasure of staying at the Ponderosa Motor Inn in Golden BC. I was surprised with the quality of our room especially for the price point for the room. Very clean, quiet, comfortable bed. The room was updated, roomy and had a nice flat screen TV. It also offers a continental breakfast as well. I liked the over... More

We didn't find out the hot tub was out of order until after check in. Could not contact the on-site manager at midnight about the loud drunk two doors down and had to contact the police directly. When we talked to the manager the next morning about the terrible night we had to endure, they said it was too bad... More
