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 Rooms were very outdated, small, and dingy.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

We were visiting family in Sylvan and looked for something last minute. unfortunately every other hotel had no vacancy; which was strange considering it was mid-week and winter time. luckily they got us in at the little motel! This was an awesome place to stay... 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

This was the most disgusting place I have ever stayed in. The building is run down, the stairs leading to upper level suites are rotting, the kitchen was sick and covered in dust and grease stains. I had to wash my own bedding because it was stinky dirty when my family arrived. The carpets smelled of mold. We paid in... More

I have never been so disappointed with a hotel. It was so dirty that when my family and I arrived my husband took the kids to the water so my daughter and I could clean before unloading our stuff. After and hour and a half of cleaning we were so tired and disgusted we tried to find another hotel that... More

My family has been staying at this little motel for over 15 years thru three different owners and we had the worst experience ever there last summer. We had two rooms and they were so dirty we did not want to take off our shoes. The bedspreads which are not washed between customers were covered in stains and we had... More

This motel is an older building but in pretty good shape. Our room was very clean, no issues at all. The rooms are fairly small but well equipped. This is not a resort in Cancun, it's a small motel in Sylvan Lake, keep that in mind. The view is great. There is a fire pit out front...it was great to... More

My wife and I stayed for three nights in February 2012 and our visit coincided with the arrival of the new owners who immediately showed that they intend to improve the facility by offering a complimentary full breakfast. They are experienced property/hotel people and will improve the plain look the hotel has. As is the rooms represent a good value... More
