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 Rooms were very outdated, small, and dingy.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

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
