Almost every year for our anniversary, we stay at the Mermaid. The rooms are clean and the owners are friendly and obliging. They know the area and give us great ideas for activities. We usually get a kitchenette so we can cook most meals. This time we couldn't find a bottle opener and they obliged by giving us one to... More

We have stayed 2x at this motel. The rooms are clean and the service is friendly and accommodating. My friends and I travel with our dogs and the staff is very dog friendly and savvy. Great view of the lake and if the Hot Springs would clean up there trash it would be even better. Don't let the resort suck... More

We had the room with the kitchen unit and it was very nice and very affordable. The staff was awesome and friendly. Beautiful views of the lake and mountains and it was so quiet and peaceful. I would definitely recommend this place and I will be going back sometime real soon.

The halls need a wash. There was garbage all over the property. The matresses are old. They've upgraded the duvets and floors. Its like staying an old ladies house but one you'd come back too maybe every few years. Its not for everyone; its for those who like a clean place to sleep.

we stayed there for three nights. never saw one cleaning person the entire three nights. no fresh towels, coffee, or garbage emptied. and they changed the room rate, and wanted only cash, or extra charges. this has been reported to CRA.

The wonderful part of our journey was our stay at The Mermaid LODGE AND MOTEL. Clean, Warm and well appointed Kitchen with everything you could think of. Pet Friendly !!! If you need... More

The place accepts pets which is rare. Convenient 3 minute walk to the hot spring pools. I could see people in the pool from our room. The motel is showing signs of age though so if that bothers you, don't get the rooms at the back.

Unit 7 had only a hook latch leading to the balcony and the door did not close properly. Large brown stink bugs were coming in through the door crack, which apparently come from the cedar trees. I could not keep them out. After sitting in the room and reading for awhile, we could not keep on top of the bugs... More

We are sorry this guest did not enjoy her stay with us but we did explain that this time of year we have a certain kind of flying bug called the Cedar Bug that flies in from the surrounding Cedar trees and tries to come in for hibernation over the winter months. We do not have any control over these... More

We were fortunate to stay at the Mermaid, with our small (9 pound) dog, as almost nowhere can you find a place that accepts your pet! The owners are wonderfully friendly and easy-going, and we had an adorable kitchenette, could keep groceries and cook. The bed sheets were sateen cotton, so clean and fresh from the clothes-line! We sat outside... More
