“Comfortable bed and great service at Lakeview!”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

I stayed at this hotel, and was very happy, Oh! and the beds are extra comfy! , and the room was clean. The front desk staff are nice and courteous. They have a restaurant and a lounge which is very good, so i can order it from my room, and I loved their food, it's yummy! The breakfast buffet was awesome! I'm so pleased with their great service!, it made me feel like home, which made my stay wonderful. Keep it up! I will recommend this to my friends, and I will be back.

Room Tip: rooms facing south have a nicer view

I didn't stay at the hotel, but the restaurant has been renamed Roustabouts. the food quite simply was fresh, delicious and authentic. I had lunch and had the best turkey club sandwich I have ever tasted. You new from the first bite, real roast turkey, great cheddar cheese, crisp tasty bacon.

I went back for dinner and had the Butter Cicken as a customer of mine told me to try it. It did not disappoint. It was as a large portion of rice, garlic nan, and butter chicken. The sauce was great! Keep up the good work...I'll be back!

We stay at lake views whenever possible, as they have incredibly comfy beds!! Clean rooms, staff was average. It did smell a bit of smoke in the hallways but you could not smell it in our room. The breakfast was okay, they had bacon, sausages, pancakes, French toast, potatoes, eggs, bread, bagels, yogurt. Plus you can order from the menu if you wish. The eggs were the only thing not very good. The staff in the breakfast room was very friendly and helpful. I would also say the parking lot was not meant for cars, huge holes, and big drop off to get in and out. Overall the I would recommend, the beds and clean rooms are so worth it!!!

I stayed at Lakeview for 2 weeks in March 2012. I was there for business and this was pretty much the only hotel that had any rooms so our company booked here. Looked ok from the website. I have to start off with that the staff were very friendly and that is about the only good thing.
My bed was in the basement (room 145) at the very end of the hallway. I was getting into bed the first night to two red ants in my bed... i tried to get past that and enjoy my stay. You can hear EVERYTHING while you sleep, i could barely hear my television as the people above me just walking around made so much noise (this went on the entire visit).
The room was barely cleaned every day, i dont think they vacuumed my floor at all the entire 2 weeks, and they cleaned the bathroom but not well. They did not replenish my shampoo and conditioner every day (until the last few days of my stay) and one day they gave me lotion instead of conditioner.
I felt dirty being there. I had a chair in my room that had a nasty stain that i would never touch or sit on, and there was a couch in the hallway between the basement hallways that had a nasty stain too.
Every time i would put my key card in the door, red ants would come out of the hold in the door... yuck. now i know, bugs can be everywhere, but this just further proves that they do not clean this place well. To top it off, i ended up getting ringworm which i know i contracted there because i got it about 5 or 6 days into staying there and it hadn't gone away. I thought it was a normal rash, but i had no idea what ringworm is until I had this rash for a month and went to a doctor!
The food - less than average. Breakfast was bland, nothing special. I am not saying it was bad, but id rather go to timmies for breakfast. I guess for free, it was good. I ate there twice for dinner and it was less than average, probably the worst place i ate at while i was there.
And is roomservice supposed to knock on your door at 7:30 in the morning? I have always known them to clean when everyone is likely out of their rooms! I was woken up every morning to them knocking on my damn door!

Overall, i rate this as a 1 but only because the staff were friendly. NEVER would i stay there again, but NEVER will i be in drayton valley anyways.

Room smelled of urine yet manager said nothing was wrong. Would have helped to have a window that would open!
If you must stay here, get a room on the very top floor, otherwise you will hear when someone above you moves around as the floor creaks, cracks, etc. with every step, and quite loudly!
After waking up on the first morning, the tub on narrow end side was dirty with hair and soap scum, the second day was fine as was the third.
The only positive aspect was that the staff were very polite.

We recently stayed at the Lakeview Inn; other wise know to the locals as the Black Gold Inn. We were in town for the weekend to participate in Drayton's annual "Thunder in the Valley" airport drag racing event (very cool) and pre-booked this hotel due to the previous positive rating. It's an older hotel, but the rooms are clean & spacious. Tracy at the front desk is very pleasant, helpful and a great sence of humor. We unfortunately we didn't have a chance to try the free complimentary breakfast. We will defiantly stay their next year!
