We were driving from Calgary to Sylvan Lake and decided to stay the night. My husband quickly booked this place for $105.00 for a room with a queen bed and it seemed nice because the ad said the hotel was right on the lake. I must be very naive because I thought $105.00 would get you a decent room given... More

The owners of this seedy motel are really really nice. But that's almost the only nice thing about it. Location is ideal right across from the beach within walking distance of the water slides, and there is a fire pit if you thought to bring wood for a little fire at night. But it is dirty, and noisy, and attracts... More

You would be better off to sleep in your car. I am sure it would be cleaner and more quiet. If u have to stay here, be sure to bring your own bedding, towels and lots of Lysol. You do want any part of u to touch any part of these rooms. Dirty, stinky, and I feel the beds may... More

Had only planned on a day trip to Sylvan Lake but decided to stay the night as the weather was so nice. Best Western insisted on a credit card for the stay, unfortunately we didn't have one as the overnight stay wasn't intended. We decided to stay at this place. Room smelt slightly of cigarettes, although apparently a nonsmoking room.... More

My spouse and I stayed 2 months in this motel due to work and it was pretty cheap. I had to ask for things to be cleaned and they never did change the bedding unless we asked. We complained numerous time about the smell of marijuana but nothing ever seemed to be done. It was very out dated, cold and... More

Just completed a six week stay at the Beach Front. This motel is right across the street from the lake and in the middle of the lakeshore area. It is an older property and therefore quite a bit more reasonable than the other places in town. The staff are delightful and really try hard to please their guests....especially if you... More

We didn't plan on staying in this hotel, but during our day at Sylvan Lake we drank a bit too much to drive back, and needed a cheap place to stay. Rooms were very outdated, small, and dingy. No air conditioning on a hot summer night, made for a bad sleep! Toilet was very wobbly and we thought it was... More

The Beach Front “Resort” advertises family units with kitchens. This is definitely not a family hotel nor is it in any way a resort. The room smelt like mould and smoke, even though it was a non-smoking room. The rooms were dirty and not maintained and we could not sleep because the sheets were ripped and the walls kept creaking... More

Let me begin by saying that this is not somewhere you'll want to go for a romantic getaway. It is an older motel, and it's been years since it was updated. The furniture, paint, appliances etc. are all in need of updating, and I've seen cleaner places. However, no one goes to Sylvan to hang out in the room, right?... More
