“Great Place to Stay”
Reviewed March 16, 2008

We stayed at Harrison Beach Hotel for the Synchronized Skating National Competition. Our suite was great and we loved the view with the mountains in the background. The Staff were great making sure we had anything we needed. We loved the town and all the quaint little shops. Our whole stay was a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend it to anyone coming west.

this hotel is awful. totally misleading from how they advertise it, it is in no way luxurious or elegant and completely lacks any kind of quality. i have been in super 8 motels that have been more luxurious than this place. in addition, the town is a dump and is not worth going to. the sand sculptures are amazing but there is no need to spend a night in harrison.

Location :
In front of the lake. Be careful to choose a room with lake view. The back of the building is not really nice (small street and car park)

Rooms :
As the hotel is only 2 or 3 years old, furnishing is brand new, every thing clean and up to date. Only problem was the front to ceiling window, which lock was broken (we suspect the room was "visited" in the past). Really annying when you ask in the booking to be on a high floor.

Value for money :
Really the main issue according to us. 180 CAD for the room we had (ground floor, on the car park) is really a scandal : no view, no light, ...

Services :
Pool is small, with no view. Not very nice.
It must be said that personal on duty was helpful, as they did grant us access to the office computer for us to check our e-mails.

Overall : really pricey. We also had a dinner in the nearby "spa" hotel. Food was disgusting (so-called italian buffet). We found during our stay no other better alternative, and were finally very disappointed with our stay.

We were disappointed with this hotel. We expected more based on the reviews from other Tripadvisor members. Although apparently quite new - everything here is showing wear badly. The carpet in our room was in need of cleaning - lots of big spills and marks that should be removed as part of regular maintenance. The walls and cupboards are also marked and dirty - demonstrating a disregard for anything more than surface cleaning. Although there was a small refrigerator, sink and microwave - without a stove top of any kind - this really cannot be considered to be a full kitchenette. Popular with families, because of the generous room size and advertised kitchen facilities - be prepared for lots of noise from children. Nothing much can be done about this.... a room on the uppermost floor might do the trick. While I wouldn't stay here again - I really didn't see much else there other than the resort - might be worth a try.

This is a new property, so the rooms are nicely furnished, and are very clean.

The standard mountain view room I booked had a nice king bed, microwave, fridge and coffee maker, desk, dvd, etc...all very nice. We happened to get a corner room which had a very large private balcony, which as an added bonus, allowed for an unexpected lake view.

We weren't there for the hot springs, just for a break. If I return to Harrison, I might consider the "Resort" for a night to check out the pools. Otherwise, the Beach Hotel is a great value.

(Also, the Black Forest Restaurant next door was a great choice for dinner)

Me, my wife and son stayed here, June 17-19, 2007. We loved it. It was immaculate, everything from the bed, linens, sofa, and kitchen. The staff was polite and friendly. We would highly recommend this hotel to everyone visiting Harrison Hot Springs. Everything on this hotels website is truly accurate. The only blemish is the toilet. It should flush stronger. The toilet may have a tendency to plug if too much is flushed at one time.

I have to admit... I was disappointed. REALLY disappointed.

When browsing their website & after reading some reviews my fiance & I decided to book our long awaited romantic weekend getaway. We booked three nights in what was called an executive suite. I don't know who the executive is but he must be a sad little man to want this room.

Our 'Mountian side' view consisted of a lovely view of the top peak of a mountian, followed by an even better view of the Executive Hotel across the street & the Harrison Pizza shop (fantastic pizza by the way, a must have!). We were situated convieniently next to the only ice machine in the hotel & beside the elevator. So we were never without the company of other guests noise.

Our bedroom was actually quite lovely. The bed was large & comfortable. None of the typical tacky bedspreads or quilts you so often find. My one problem was the draperies. Our was pointed in the direction of the sunrise & even with the draperies drawn tight our room was brightly lit every morning by 5AM. I'm one of those people who can't sleep unless it's at least partially dark so my mornings were long & drawn out.

The website makes the rooms deceptively larger than they really are. We wanted a room with a usable kitchen so I could make one romantic candle lit meal, however this was more akin to what could be found in a dorm room (mini fridge, microwave and just a stove top rather than the complete oven I required). The living room area was laughably small, the fireplace was a fake fireplace and our remotes for the TV's had dead batteries. We had a jacuuzi bath tub however hot water was in short supply. The heated bathroom floors were a nice touch though. the bathrooms were just about the only part that was roomy.

While the staff was friendly for the most part - the girl who greated us was very nice. We got the general sense that they were irritated by questions. When my fiance had some problems connecting with the internet, rather then them arrange to have someone fix it he was eventually told that their IT guy lived in the Oakanogan (about 2-3 hours away - who hires people they can't get to??) and that he wouldn't be comming out to figure out what this issue was.

Housekeeping was quite slow. We would be able to spend our morings & a large portion of our afternoons exploring the town & beach & still manage to come back to the room at 4:00 & find it hadn't been touched yet.

For three nights of this we spent $800.00. We could have stayed at a much cheaper hotel & had the same experiance.

I almost rated the hotel higher until I sat down & really thought about it. The only real highlight about the hotel that I want to remember is that is where my fiance proposed to me.

  • Liked — centralized location to attractions & shops
  • Disliked — To expensive for what we received. I feel ripped off a bit.
