Spent one evening here in August 2014. This motel is quite dated, and the rooms are small, with only the most basic amenities. However, it is clean, the staff are great, and the location is fantastic. They also have small lakefront cabins available at the back of the property, which we were unaware of when we booked. Next time we'll... More

Bala Hy Motel was a bit of a run down place. The rooms are very small. There is no regulation of the hot water and so if you're in unit 7 and someone flushes the toilet in unit 1, you're going to get burned. Everything is outdated. This is a very affluent area and huge for visitors. I'm sure the... More

Very nice quaint older motel, with a great location.They had our rooms already for our group, and gave me an update on their planned arrival. Very hot water, in the shower, which my wife likes. The staff were friendly and courteous. One room had a odd odour, so they just switched them to a bigger room. The lake, island and... More

The room was comfortable and fresh smelling. The lake in the back is beautiful with a lovely little island and beach, where we could have spent half... More

We stayed here on two separate trips, 1 night each, in the past few weeks. Each time we just needed a place to sleep and park our bass boat/trailer overnight. We were in the area to enjoy some fishing on Lake Joseph and Rosseau nearby. Reservations by phone were a breeze. The reservation team is very accommodating and courteous. During... More

You can walk to the Kee from here and the beer store is right next store. Older place but rooms are clean and it has a nice waterfront out back with a firepit and beach. Stayed here when seeing Hedley in Bala. Lots of concert goers stay here so sort of a tailgate party atmosphere. Cheaper prices considering theres only... More
