This place is very disorganized right from booking online - you receive a confirmation number with committment that you will be called to confirm, but no one calls you. The price for a night's stay should be no more than $70/night max, versus $160/night regardless that you are on the lake. During our stay the bathroom had a shower curtain... More

This place might be one you would want to shy away from. Our family could never find anyone who worked the motel part of the business and I don't think I've ever stayed anywhere else where disorganization was the theme. We encountered windows with no screens (flies and mosquito's loved that!), face cloths that looked like they had been used... More

This place is unbelievable. First, you go online to make your reservation and it comes back and tells you that you have a confirmation number. then it says that someone will call to confirm the reservation. NO ONE CALLS YOU! So I call them a day before we leave for there and they have no idea that I'm coming but... More

Pros: great location with a wonderful view. food is ok. serving staff are pleasant and friendly, if a little slow. Cons: smelly, dirty room. accommodation staff is slow, not accommodating, and impolite. bed was uncomfortable. can hear the people in the next room brushing their teeth because the walls are so thin. no coffee in the mornings unless you go...

This has been bothering me now for over a month. I have never and I mean NEVER had such a combination of bad service, food and accommodation in one place ever! The sad lazy girl in the sparkle boots that was "in charge" of the place seemed to be inconvenienced by my presents because she had to get off the... More

There were socks under the bed that where NOT mine and certain hairs in the bathroom again NOT mine...plus broken glass on the bathroom floor makes one wonder if a broom is part of the cleaning regime. There was no service just confused individuals that would refer you to a manger that no one seen nor knew how to reach.... More

It was just awful. I slept with my clothes on all night. Bathroom towel rod broken towles hung from a rusty shower rod. No supplies what so ever. Pillow on bed as old as the hill. I can't see how they are allowed to get a License to rent out rooms.

Great location on the beach near the ferry terminal in Balfour. The building is old, and in need of either a major Reno or torn down. Beds uncomfortable, carpets and counters dirty, room had unpleasant odor. All this for $120 night. Bring a tent and stay at Kokanee creek provincial Park instead.
