“Still a good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

I was here in 2010, and again this year. Once again, easy parking in front, easy check-in, satisfactory room. Hot, tired - and there's a store around the corner with cold beer and snacks. Coffee shop adjacent to hotel, too.

Several restaurants an easy walk away. We had sushi for dinner at the Lillooet Inn (only available last half of week so check).

Miyazaki House just behind the hotel provides an interesting diversion. Free. There's a concert on its grounds every summer Friday night. 7-9 so no noise problem; hotel windows blocked the sound anyway.

Simple, effective air conditioning - although it might be better if it didn't blow directly across the bed!

Morning breakfast was well organized, basic but satisfactory. Server was cheerful and friendly. Didn't open till 8:00, so be aware of that if you're an early starter. We didn't see that anything else in town had got itself moving before 8 either, so maybe you should just plan for that.

As others have said, this is not a fancy place. But there are signs that an ongoing effort is being made, and I give points for that. The grout in our shower had been recently replaced - and that's an area even the top hotels fall down on. There were little signs here and there explaining how things work. A small 2nd-floor lounge has a microwave. Our room had a small fridge. Etc. Etc.

A good, no frills choice in a small town. The rooms are a bit on the small side, but they are very clean and the beds are comfortable. Free Wi-Fi and a continental breakfast is included - it's basic (cereals, fruit, pastries) but the coffee is great! Most of the rooms are set back from the main street and it's fairly quiet.

Checked in on the 12th of august.
Paid 100$ for one night. I know its high season, but I've been to better Hotels this year for less money.
Even in Vancouver Downtown !
The Hotel ist not that clean but its more then expected. What I really like here is AC, Fridge, Coffemachine and all the little soap thingies.
I would go to this place again if the price would be decreased by 25%.

Room Tip: If you have problems with traffic sound, ask for a room at the back

No frills hotel but everything you need for a short stay. We took a room at the rear - you can park your car there and its only a short flight of steps to bring your luggage in.

This place is clean, cool, convenient and has everything you need for a quiet good nights sleep. Staff is very friendly and helpful. The wifi is excellent. It was 97 degrees when we arrive so the A/C was terrific. Restaurant right next door. Continental breakfast was good and free, much to choose from.

We had read a number of good and bad reviews for this hotel but we were pleasantly surprised. We had a very nice clean room with small fridge which was overlooking the back of the hotel and close to Dr Miyazaki's house. We went to a chinese restaurant just up from the hotel. The town was really quiet when we arrived but the following morning it seemed to come to life.

There is a simple but adequate breakfast served in the restaurant at the front of the hotel. Friendly staff so pleasant stay on our journey to Clearwater.

One of the newer motels in Lillooet but not by any means new. Our room was a little small but it was clean and cool. We showed up on a sweltering July day on our bikes and there was only parking in the blazing sun. Before I could even get my kickstand down the manager was outside getting cars moved so we could park in the shade...much appreciated! Continental breakfast was served in the attached (very popular) coffee house. Great coffee (yes, I said great) and pastries and other delights.
I'm not sure I'd stay there for a week but it was a good place to lay my head for a night.
