“The rooms were so bad, I slept in the car!”
Reviewed April 30, 2010

We booked a room here because we were attending a wedding at a nearby lodge which was already completely booked up for the weekend. The front enterance to our room was COVERED in cob webs and huge disgusting spiders.. it was clear that this room had not even been entered in atleast a month! Inside it smelled musty and like old cigarette smoke.. everything was very dirty and worn...the beds were hard and the bathroom had just as many spiders living it as the front door did. My nieces and nephews came running and screaming at the sight of the pool.. the water was green and brown in color. Unfortunately everyone from my family also booked here and all rooms were in the same condition. I slept in the car, and I think everyone had left the property by 5am because we all had not slept! Do not stay here.. the only nice part is the beautiful view of the water and the ferries going by.

Sleeping rooms beyond being simply tired. Upon entering, room had musty odour, killed 19 cedar beetles, and plumbing/.appliances generally in poor repair and/or non-functional. Would definitely not recommend.

This is a tired out old motel charging $100.00 a night for $40.00 a night value. The carpets are filthy, the combo stove and refridgerator were rusted and not working ( no fridge ,1 element worked ) A second bar fridge was provided. The futon that serves as the second bed and front room couch was threadbare and worn out. There was no hot water the first morning we were there. There was a boil water advisory for the Balfour water district. A responsible and caring operator would have provided drinking water for their paying guests. At $100.00 a night a bottle or two of clean water should not be an outrageous expense for the operator. No phone , no clock, no iron, not much competition in the area allows substandard motels like this one to stay in operation. Go somewhere else and spend your holiday dollars !

They let their animals - a cat and a t cup dog - roam around the resteraunt, and run around the kitchen! i saw the owners pick up their dog, multiple times, and then i saw them putting the dog down when bringing food to the table - i did not see them wash their hands in between. Also, the people on the patio next to my wife and I complained about cat hair in their food!
I saw their animals run in and out kitchen multiple times. I will not be staying there again, and I would not reccomend this motel to anyone .
