Lovely place with nice views from the balcony rooms. The proprietors were really friendly and helpful. The only issue I had was the heater was on a timer and kept going off so if you go out you come back to a cold room. Not nice in the middle of winter. Apart from that the room was very tidy and...

Clean and warm units were nice. But unfortunately the shower didn't work. Only unit where this was the case so not related to frozen pipes. No discount or alternative offered. Was a shame as was a birthday treat for my daughter.

We chose this motel based on location and price and we were not disappointed. It is really close to the main town area and yet was very quiet. The proprietor was friendly and helpful on check in and we appreciated being shown to our room. The room was a reasonable size with a kitchenette just inside the door. The unit... More

We had a relaxing and very comfortable stay at Aspen Lodge motel. The 1 bedroom suite was clean, spacious and well appointed. The weather was not great during our stay, so we really appreciated heaters in both rooms and the large selection of DVDs to borrow! We also appreciated the pool towels to take with us to the hot springs.... More

We were a group booking staying in 3 units. The location is great really close to town and the units very quiet. There were a few hiccups, Internet strength only very average and hit and miss. Upon booking we had requested x2 king beds only to arrive and they said they had run out of linen so it was one... More

What can I say. The room was lovely, no traffic noise and the 'complimentary' items always a plus.the bed was too hard according to my man but he is real fussy.. I found it comfortable. But I need to say the host Bill went out of his way to be helpful on all requests and set about helping us when... More

My family and I stayed one night at this motel. Firstly the owners Bill and Sue were very friendly and helpful. We had a two bedroom apartment which was very spacious. The rooms were spotless and it was very quiet and restful. We were supposed to get a discount at a local restaurant but unfortunately due to a communication mix... More

The owner of Aspen Lodge went out of his way to help us in several ways, nothing was too much trouble for him. Wonderful views, clean spacious room and perfect cooking facilities. Free wi-fi and ample parking space
