“Don't Stay Here!”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

This place is falling apart. The bathroom was atrocious! Stains in the tub, the floor was moldy and lifting, it smelled musty. The ceilings had water stains and pieces were falling off. The beds were disgusting. The entire place looked like something from a bad movie. I don't recommend this place at all.

Harrison Village Motel is in a terrific location. Just drive north on BC Highway 9 to the very end, turn right and you're pretty much there. It is on a tiny piece of land, though, so it is easy to miss, but it is right across the street (Esplanade) from the public beach on Harrison Lake.

Our room was small but it had air conditioning on a hot sunny day. It was clean and it met our needs. It is an inexpensive property in a resort town where you could easily pay more. Really, there isn't much to complain about.

The air cond was good. We would have walked out without it.
Some effort has been made with draws, tables and pots, but theplace is falling to pieces.
The carpets and sofa is stained in many places.
We had an inside room with no ventilation.
One night is enough.
The sheets were clean but had a join sewn near the toes.
The area is very beautiful and relaxing.
No pool here - public pools down the road.
Many magnificent hotels and camper parks all around.
We paid $185 on a Saturday, thinking we were coming somewhere nice.
The photos are misleading! Park on the road.

Room Tip: Many properties here. A caravan for the night would be better.

The Harrison Village is in a very convenient location right across from the beach and in the middle of restaurants and activities at Harrison Lake. The owners were friendly enough and I think mean well, but the motel is badly outdated and in need of an upgrade. The room was clean but pretty dark and faded. Rust came out of the shower when first turned on, the windows don't lock, etc. OK for a short stay on a tight budget, but otherwise not recommended.

Stayed with friends.
The rooms were fine for what we needed it for. We only slept there, as we were gone from 7am to 7pm, for sports.
The rooms were small and outdated but well kept. There wasnt a telephone in the room. The deck was in poor shape, as the sliding door barely opened, spider webs and bird poo everywhere. A good cleaning would have been appreciated. The location was beautiful. Lovely view to wake up to. The bathroom fixtures were very old, there want a plug for the bath tub. But it was clean.
The male owner was grumpy with us, due to the time we arrived at night. We caught the 7 ferry from the island, and he would have preferred a call to let him know. He stated this a few times, despite me offering him 3 apologies. The female owner was very pleasant and helpful.
Limited parking space.
All in all, we wouldn't stay there again, if in Harrison.

We stayed over New Years and was upgraded to a kitchenette suite for no charge, which we appreciated. It felt cozy and as if we were at home. We were next to the stairs though, which, with people going up and down was thunderous, but that's to be expected.
Beautiful little motel, much more than I expected it to be, will definitely return in the warmer months!

Room Tip: away from the staircase
