This place was great! The staff that I dealt and talked with during our 3 1/2 day stay were absolutely a pleasure!! This was my 2 kids & my 1st real get away holiday. Given the location I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. Some reviews mentioned that the place is dated, but if they took the time to talk... More

We made a last minute reservation through bookings.com. The price seemed affordable so we thought why not. Check-in was easy and fast. Room and hotel were old and dated but the room was clean. Due to the dated décor, I probably wouldn't stay here again.

My wife and I stayed Sat July 19. We were in town to meet up with her relatives for a nice day at the lake. The weather did not cooperate with us so we ended up spending more time at the hotel than we otherwise would and were pleasantly surprised. Sylvan Lake is a booming town during the summer months...

This place was disgusting. There was a blood splatter all over the bathroom wall and bathroom sol door. We stayed in the jacuzzi room and the jacuzzi looked like it hadn't been cleaned in months. Front desk man said he was only going to charge 250$ on the credit card for a deposit but he charged 500$ and it took... More

I was waiting for this review. Our hotel requires a valid credit card to stay. A prepaid credit card is not a valid credit card. If you would have had a true credit card, no deposit would be required. The $500.00 damage deposit is and was told to you at check-in. We have to protect these rooms for any damages... More

The hotel is dated and a bit of a walk from all the action. Very poor sound barrier and the staff made it very clear that there was no loud parties allowed. I found the sign sufficient and did not think it was necessary for them to verbally tell us the second we walked in the door before even saying... More

Thanks for the review. If my staff did not say hello, I apologize for that. Not sure on the dated and sound barrier issue. The AC has a power button on the front and if you needed help turning it off, you should have called the front desk for help. Yes, we do make it clear to guest like yourself... More

Stayed with my daughter for 2 nights the week of August 12th. The Front Desk staff were more than helpful, very pleasant to deal with, taking the time to answer any questions we may have had. The Hotel was quiet when we were there. The room was very clean, the beds comfy. Asked for a room over looking the lake,... More

It is hard for me to respond as I do not know when you stayed or what room you were in. Sylvan is a party town and we are trying to curb this, but when the guests come back from the bars they want to continue and forget that others are trying to sleep. We have a 48 hour cancelation... More

Amber, when you damage a room you will be billed. You and your friends would not let housekeeping in during your 2 day stay. You lied about your other room. You told us that a friend had an accident. We told you that you would have to pay for both rooms as we have turned away guests as our hotel... More
