Shuswap Lake Motel and Resort
Reviewed August 26, 2011

We stayed in the campground portion of the Resort. The owners do a very good of keeping the place clean and tidy and are vey friendly..
Place is great for kids as they have tons of play areas and toys, from a large sandbox (including toys) to a full size trampoline and three play sets (swings, slides, etc etc)..
A gas station, pizza place, and full market is a walk away..
Showers are free.

Bad parts (not the fault of the owners) is its location.. It has access to a private beach but its a rough walk (6 minutes downhill, 15 minutes uphill LOL), and the 'resort' is only 100 ft from the main hwy (bring earplugs!!)..

I would recommend this place to anyone who is NOT looking for the quiet 'back to nature' camping experience. Would also make a great 'stop over' place for those travelling long distances.

P.S. If you like Bluegrass music, the third week in August, Sorrento has a music festival just north of the "Resort".. If you hate bluegrass BRING EARPLUGS as it goes on day and night!

Motel was always full when we stayed their, but the owners were able to find camping spots for anyone who need it..

Just wanted to send a huge thank you to everyone at Shuswap Lake Motel and Resort. Our family had an absolutely amazing time during the end of July. They have built and maintained a beautiful spot that has something for every style of 'camper' and sooooo much to do for little kids. We had our 70+ year old grandparents to a 7 month old baby and everyone loved their stay. Very easy to find off the highway and all the conveniences of town a super short walk away. We will definitely be back!

Room Tip: Quite a variety of spots from little cabins to tenting sites to gravelled RV sites. Owners are very...

We were delighted with the grassy setting, and individual/duplex cabins. On entering the room we found it was light and airy, and had fridge, A/C and much more. The hosts were able to help me get Wi-fi onto my laptop, and contact friends in the area, using their phone. Wonderfully friendly. Easy access to beach and back from the highway- so very quiet. Would have stayed longer but they were fully booked.

We went up to see the spectacular Adams River sockeye salmon spawning, and needed a place nearby. This place had the only vacancy within 50 kms, and seemed a bit pricey, but we eagerly grabbed it.

As it turned out, we were so comfortable there, we were reluctant to leave. Older, fairly minimal 1br units, but spotlessly clean, newly repainted, with new appliances and a full, well stocked kitchen. Ours could have slept 5 people, and in front was a terrific kids' play area. Each pair of units share a bar-be-cue, again near new and meticulously clean.

A lakeside beach is a few minutes' walk away. Sorrento is not a tourist mecca, believe me, but it has places to eat if you like pizza, and hosts an annual music festival.

There is road noise (located beside the Trans Canada Highway), but somehow it did not bother us- this is a roadside motel, after all.

The proprietors have been there 18 years, and their care, attention, and enthusiasm for their business and the area, make them ambassadors for the hospitality industry of the region.

I'd go again, just to visit them.....
