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.....
