Well we had been on the road a long time and stopped at Mike Wiegle's. We were offered the staff accommodation which was going for $100.00 a night for a room so tiny it was really meant for an employee who worked 12 hour days and was going to sleep. Totally avoid this accommodation unless they have the cabins available.... More

This place was great. It seems the suites were recently updated, so everything was clean and in good shape. The suite came with a living room, separate bedroom and full kitchen. There were also community barbecues for all to use. There is a fairly decent grocery store in town, so you can conveniently make your own meals if you wish.... More

I think you basically get what you pay for. I was looking for cheap lodging for the trip back to Vancouver from Jasper and didn't want to drive for more than 3 hours each day. So we found ourselves in Clearwater. I had booked the Watauga Village cabins and was not expecting too much. However I was pleasantly surprised with... More

We stayed here two nights before heading to Jasper. We stayed in the Deer room which was soooo nice. The kitchen has all kinds of facilities (enough pots and pans...) and the bathroom was also very clean. We had a couple of very nice chat with the cleaninglady Margot (thanks for that Margot!) :) the bed is very very good!

Two nights here served as a great stopping off point for Wells Gray Provincial Park. The cabins were clean and comfortable although nothing fancy. They have full kitchen facilities and are quite spacious. Friendly and helpful staff.

Fantastic lady working the check in, so kind. Room was standard fair, had a little kitchenette. Beds were comfy, room was clean. Nestled in a beautiful little town, we would definitely stay there again.

What this older motel has to offer is a quiet, peaceful retreat away from the busy streets and highways. Closer to nature with all the comforts of home. Friendly staff with people who truly care about your stay. It doesn't get any better than that! Thank you Watauga Village... Everything was just simply perfect!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We recently purchased WATAUGA VILLAGE CABINS AND MOTEL in September 2015. We are renovating all the rooms. We have upgraded to flat screen TVs, satellite, wifi and replaced the mattresses. All rooms have been themed and have murals painted on the walls. All units are kitchenettes. The motel is located in a very quiet park-like setting close to the river and is very close to all amenities. ... more   less
