We left Vancouver and arrived at Blue River, tired and hungry, it was around 9.30 at night, and we needed a bed. $115.00 says the man behind the counter!! "Yes", he says, breakfast is included.
With little option, we paid the outrageous price, and took our key. The room was old, the furniture mismatched, and looked like it had been donated to the hotel by an ex landlord hoping to dump his old furniture.
It was very hot last weekend and unfortunately the windows didn't open, so we spent a very rough night. Thankfully we were too tired and fell asleep. The next morning, we awoke, hungry and ready for breakfast. Breakfast was a self serve, of assorted croissant, fruit, packaged oatmeal, a coffee machine and hot water for tea. Not nice.
I would not recommend this 'lodge', which is really no more than a trumped up motel. These people know they have a captured clientele - If you reach Blue River and you have no where to stay late at night, they know you have little option and will pay what they ask.
By the way there is no restaurant on site, nor is it licenced. So if you have small children, like we did, bring your own food. The 'suggestion' that we pack our kids down the road for a bite to eat, at 10.00pm just didn't work for us. We went to bed hungry.
