    « Great Stay »

    Great location and amenities. Good service. Stove in the kitchenette was not level but reported that on checkout. Only other problem with the room was the toilet roll holder was broken but advised front desk on checkout. Missing from this Best Western was the cookies or chocolates at the front desk in the evenings.

    « Comfortable, quiet and modern »

    I stayed at the Best Western Williams Lake on a business trip, and I'm sure this is the best option in town. It's fresh and fairly new, the beds are comfortable, and some rooms have a nice view of the lake and surrounding mountains. The pool and hot tub are a nice bonus as well. It isn't quite in downtown, however is only about 5 minutes away. There is also a good pub next door for dinner, an easy 2 minute walk. I'm quite sure I will stay here again next time I'm up north.

    « Great location friendly staff »

    I love that quiet location and the staff is always very helpful. I got upgraded on my last visit which was very nice. I'll probably always stay there it seems safer than staying downtown and there is a nice pub next door.

    « Always a Great Experience. Highly Recommend!! »

    Over the past 5 years I have had to travel the Cariboo a lot and Williams Lake is always convenient spot to rest. All the hotels there seem like dungeons EXCEPT for the best western. Its by far the best dungeon of them all. Rooms have always been clean, beds are really comfy and defiantly has the best continental breakfast out of everywhere that I travel. It is the only place I would recommend staying while in Williams Lake!

    « By Far The Best Hotel In Williams Lake »

    I was driving through Williams lake en route to burns lake and I stopped over to stay the night. I first walked into the super 8 and checked out one of their rooms and the standard was very poor, so I went next door to the best western and although they were 15% more expensive it was well worth it. The staff are super helpful and polite.

    « Super Friendly Staff!!! »

    My friend and I just returned from a long weekend at the Best Western Hotel. The staff is genuinely helpful. The hotel is perfectly located, walking distance restaurants,casino tourism centre and the liquor store!. The rooms are elegantly appointed, beds super comfy, Jacuzzi and Clean shower and full kitcthen with coffee machine. I would come for the coffee alone. Pool area good size and indoor, but nice lounges and furniture. Would gladly come back!

    « Best Hotel in the Cariboo »

    I travel to Williams Lake 2-4 times a month and I always chose to stay at the Best Western. Conveniently located right off of Highway 97 the Best Western is simply the best. The staff is always friendly and greet me by name every time I return. The beds are so comfortable I often find it difficult to get out of bed before checkout time. I think the only thing that helps pull me out of bed is the delicious breakfast which includes scrambled eggs, perfectly cooked hash browns and delicious coffee. The rooms are large, clean, modern and have all the amenities one needs while away from home. There is plenty of well lit parking available and some spots have available plug ins to help starting your vehicle after a cold cariboo night. I've stayed at other hotels in "the puddle" and nothing compares to the Best Western's value, cleanliness and friendliness.

    « Feels Like Home »

    I travel to Williams Lake about 4-5 times a month for work and this hotel makes me feel right at home. The rooms and amenities are top notch and as well as the staff. Its conveniently located right off the main road, which makes it very easy to access. There is lots of parking which is helpful when the hotel is at full capacity. Everything is super clean. I always eat the continental breakfast which has all of your essential breakfast items and great coffee!!

    « Great for a long stay! »

    I had to stay in Williams Lake for 10 nights, so I chose the BW as a friend had recommended the hotel to me. I had a room with a stove, oven, fridge / freezer, microwave, toaster and kitchen utensils so I could cook in my room without having to eat out all the time. Saved myself lots of money! :) Also they have free self serve guest laundry too which helped a lot. Great hotel, friendly staff. The free breakfast finishes at 10am though, so I it would have been better if it stayed open for a little longer.

    « Wonderful stay! Super clean, modern hotel and comfy bed »

    I'd never been to Williams Lake before, so I searched around a few of the local places to stay. This hotel is by far the most modern and newest hotel in the area. The room was really clean and the bed was comfy. The front desk lady was very helpful and polite however she was very busy taking calls and checking people in so I would suggest they need another front desk person too, as I had to wait to check in. The free continental breakfast and unlimited coffee was really good so overall a great stay!

    « longer term »

    I spend time working in Williams Lake, and need to stay at a hotel. I have tried several places, but find the Best Western to be the best. It's clean, comfortable, the breakfast is good, with some hot items, and the staff are friendly. I plan on continuing to stay at this hotel as long as I am asked to continue working in this location.

    « Stopover »

    Stayed here to break up our drive to northern BC. as well as on our return trip back to Vancouver. It is conveniently located, just off the highway. Clean rooms, well appointed, comfortable bed, friendly and welcoming staff and a hot or cold breakfast included. Booked a room with a King Size bed and were quoted a very reasonable price. When we got the bill the next morning it was for quite a bit more. Took it to the front desk where they explained the bill was for one of the jacuzzi rooms and it was their last available room. It was a nice room but as it wasn't the quoted price they adjusted the bill to what we were quoted with minimal fuss.

    « Very comfortable hotel »

    We like staying at Best Western hotels when on the road and so chose this one in Williams Lake. It is an attractive facility with a large, well decorated lobby, common seating area, and breakfast room. Both check-in and check-out were easy, and staff were very pleasant and efficient. Our room was large, overlooking the front parking lot but was very quiet. There was a king bed, desk and chair, and kitchenette area with coffee pot, microwave, small refrigerator, and sink. The large TV and wifi both worked well. The bathroom was a decent size with a large sink area and standard tub/shower. The bed and pillows were very comfortable and welcome after a long day of driving. The hotel is on the south side of town and next to a restaurant (separate review) within walking distance. We did not have the breakfast but it looked like an extensive continental spread. We would stay there again if in Williams Lake in the future.

    « Overnight: clean, quiet, satisfied. »

    We stayed overnight at this property en route to Terrace BC and were happy with the experience. The property is pretty new and well kept. The rooms are clean, modern, fresh and comfortable and the linens crisp. Reception was warm and friendly - their courtesy set a nice tone for the experience. There's plenty of parking (including for our bike). Breakfast was included and offered good choices. There's a bar/restaurant within 2 minutes walk - we didn't eat there but my friend says it's great. We ordered in from a local pizzaria for dinner. It was expensive and awful - I strongly recommend ordering from one of the established chains as they'll deliver. The BW's a little removed from town and on the main route - this was a blessing for us but may not be everyone's ideal. We'd stay again without hesitation.

    « 1 night stopover »

    We stayed here for 1 night whilst on a road trip. We stayed in room 223. The room was clean & a good size, with a comfortable bed. The ensuite bathroom was spotless. Had a nice breakfast in the morning with plenty to choose from, even for the most fussy of eaters!

    « Friendly staff, modern, and clean »

    We recently spent some time in Williams Lake and came across the Best Western. The desk staff were really friendly and would even say hello when we came across them in the town. Rooms were surprisingly nice, modern and clean. Continental breakfast was convenient. The parking lot is quite large and we were able to park my SUV w/ motorcycle trailer in the parking lot. Walking distance to a local pub and right off highway.

    « Good Accommodation, Average Price »

    They have everything you need including pool and exercise room for those wanting it. Very clean hotel with very friendly staff. Good selection for breakfast. No highway noise despite our room facing the highway.

    « Disappointed with cleanliness »

    I am fairly easy going when it comes to my stays in hotel as I travel a lot but felt that this hotel has really dropped in the quality of their housekeeping. Upon arriving to room it was apparent it was not properly cleaned. Candy wrappers, popcorn, a general mess all over the carpet. I looked at bedding and every pillowcase had black hairs on it. Called front desk and was told that there were no other rooms to move me to and that I would have to wait for her to come and change bedding as she was only one working and had to manage lobby. I felt bad for her having to run everything and she was very nice. She said maybe all the hair on pillows was cleaning staff which was a reach in my opinion as there was similar hairs in shower. No ability to vaccuum that night so I had to wear my shoes all evening in the room. Another disapointment is they no longer serve scrambled eggs which was always awesome to have for breakfast. Was told they do not have the plug in space for all the hot plates with addition of new fridge. I would recommend if you had to get rid of a breakfast item that it be the canned beans in the hot plate and return the scrambled eggs.

    « Convenient, modern & clean »

    Perfect stop-over hotel for Hwy 97 travellers. Adjacent property to Laughing Loon ~ excellent pub, and beer & wine store. Easy access to BC Hwy 97 (mere meters). Though a 100% non-smoking facility, ground floor rooms have outdoor access where ash and trash cans are stationed outside every door. Very restful stay en route to Prince George.

    « Best hotel in Williams Lake »

    I have stayed at most of the hotels in Williams Lake and I think this is the best one. The rooms are nice, have fine toiletries and it is near to The Laughing Loon, an excellent restaurant. The breakfasts are fine and there is coffee in the room.

    « Relaxing stay »

    The stay was very relaxing and i always like the freshness of a best western. I would of liked a bit more in the breakfast menu as the only eggs were hard boiled it would have been nice to have scrambled.

    « Nice Hotel »

    We were in Williams Lake for a family wedding...stayed 2 nights. Nice clean rooms, and pool was great. The free breakfast was okay, nice range of food. This was our second stay in the hotel. Safe parking lot for your car.

    « Great Stay in Billy's Puddle »

    Best Western in Williams Lake is a great comfortable hotel and we always choose it when we drive thru town. The rooms are comfortable and the prices fair. Dont always have time to use the facilities but the breakfast has alot of choices for one included with the room. Excited about our next stay.

    « Excellent stay at the Best Western Willams Lake BC »

    We were on our way to Haida Gwaii and this was an excellent stop for us coming from Washington State. We stayed two nights and looked around the area since we had not been in the area for many years. The hotel staff was very helpful and friendly, the hotel was very clean and the location was perfect for us.

    « driving thru »

    excellent hotel for this small city. excellent staff, very friendly & accommodating. we just stayed overnight as we drove thru. Originally we booked thru HotWire & there was a reservation/booking bed instead of the 2 beds that we requested. The front counter staff immediately rectified this error by HotWire @ no cost & apologized.

    « Best Western, our hotel of choice »

    Once again Best Western, Williams Lake did not disappoint -- check in was efficient and seamless - our room was clean, comfortable ---------- breakfast offered both hot and cold choices. The kitchenette and fridge was very convenient. We will be back, when in the area.

    « Average »

    Average 3 stars hotel. Rooms are spacious, beds comfortable. In my case, the bathroom was in urgent need of attention (tap of the bath tube partly detached from the wall). Good WIFI connection, modest breakfast.

    « Great Stay...Minus the pool »

    Really enjoyed our stay here, when we were travelling through the area. It was cozy, clean and the rooms were huge and had a kitchenette which was great. The staff at the front desk were very friendly. What you get for what you pay is very fair. The only thing that knocked out review down a solid star was the pool. It was a beautiful area and had potential to be great, but it was very neglected during our stay and we ended up not going in at all. The hot tub was in bad shape and overflowing with gross foam and the pool looked murky and green. This is a great stay if your family doesn't use hotel pools. After a long day of driving we were excited to hit the pool, and left disappointed. No other complaints.

    « Clean and Comfortable »

    The hotel provided good service at the front desk. Room was comfortable, clean and functional. It has a nice large TV but no HD channels. Rooms have a microwave and fridge. It has a swimming pool with hot tub. I'd stay here any time!

    « Highly recommended »

    Were( wife and I) are not easily pleased and past experience with some other chains was very disappointing. When we traveled last, in Europe, we paid upwards of $ 500 per night in some countries rather than feel uncomfortable in lesser hotels.

    « One night stay »

    Hello I have stayed at this hotel three previous times all good. I stayed on August 13th and had a horrible stay. After driving for eight hours we just wanted a nice relaxing evening, first they put us in room 229 right above the pool. Never thought anything of it until we went to bed and heard kids screaming at the top of their lungs, we had to listen to that until ten oclock. I called front desk they did not seem to care, just a casual Im sorry. Second people across the hall decided to party until 2:30, meantime I had to be up a 7. Again no care from front desk. I had also asked for express checkout which we have had in the past, this is very convienient for getting up a going in the morning. When I opened door to leave their was no paper work, so I had to wait fifteen extra minutes in the morning to leave so I could check out. Doesnt seem like much but when you only slept for over four hours and have another seven hour drive it is very frustrating

    « road trip BC »

    We had friendly staff and good service at Williams Lake. The breakfast offered hot items as well as cold, we found it satisfying. We would return and stay at this hotel again if the opportunity arose. It was nice to have coffee and tea offered in the main loby for guest.

    « Quiet and Comfy »

    Great stay as usual at Best Western. Quiet despite the numerous motorcycle riders from Australia. The rooms were large as was the bathroom. The complimentary breakfast had a large variety of items, none of which were stale doughnuts and weak coffee. This was only one of the thirteen Best Western motels that I reserved on this trip to Alaska and back. Does this tell you anything?

    « Decent hotel »

    The hotel was good, the rooms were clean, the check in went quick and the lady was very friendly! Kids had a great time in the pool, it wasn't anything special but decent. The free breakfast was ok but a person can't really complain as it is free! I would stay here again!

    « Nice Hotel »

    Very Clean, very nice rooms. First time to Williams lake. Beautiful city. Will stay at Best Western again for sure. The hotel was very nice. Recommend to anyone traveling to Williams Lake. The Pub next door was nice as well.

    « Bad customer Service »

    Well there is a few problems with this hotel. The contenental breakfast is only available assuming you get in being the room is to small for the guest. Gave up went to Dennys. And after waiting for 10 min for change for the vending machines, a fella next Steve told me they didn't have change for a $20. Was shocked, told for a 10 minutes walk I could get change, unbelievable. Do yourself a favor stay elsewhere where you can actually get the services that are supposed to be provided.

    « Great place to stay »

    Located just off the highway, easy access, Staff very friendly and the room price was very reasonable. Room was very clean with lots of room to move, offer a free hot breakfast. They also have an indoor pool. Great place to stay, only spent the night, will stay again.

    « Best Western Plus - Kelowna, BC »

    We were extremely pleased with our room # 329, overlooking Williams Lake! The room was spacious, very clean, the beds were incredibly comfortable, it was quiet and just perfect! Breakfast is included and very nice. The Laughing Loon Pub and Restaurant is right next door and very nice! We would definitely stay here again! The front desk staff were wonderful and friendly.

    « Comfy Sleep »

    Was a very quick stay but the check in was good and the room was clean and comfortable. Asked for a room with a lake view and ended up looking out at the air conditioning or something but other than that it was a great hotel. Definitely a place we will stay again.

    « First time and a great stay »

    This is a very new hotel to the Williams Lake area and it is the best in town. I am so glad BW opened up here. The room was great with a single queen mattress and comfortable pull out sofa. A nice sized desk, good size bathroom and clean. I travel to this area 3 or 4 times a year and I know where I will be staying next time. Great property and extremely nice people working there. Next time I hope to have time to use the pool and hot tub.

    « Very satisfied »

    This hotel offers everything I'm looking for when I'm passing through a city. The beds are very comfortable, the room was clean, and the staff were very professional and friendly. The hotel is located a very short drive from some restaurants (or a slightly longer walk).

    « Nice view room »

    Front desk staff was great, check in was quick and efficient, got corner King size room with jacuzzi which we used in the morning after excellent night sleep felt rejuvenated. continental breakfast was very good with variety items

    « Families of 5 or 6 - I highly recommend this hotel to you. »

    First of all I have a family of five and usually have to sneak a child in because of the fire restrictions on more than 4 people in a room-rule. This hotel has a nice room with a king for the parents in their own bedroom and two queen beds in the main part. The room is spacious and clean and includes 2 TV's and micro and fridge. This came at a reasonable price especially when you find out it includes breakfast. The continental was one of the best ones I've had. It even had pan fried hashbrowns with peppers in it. The staff was friendly too and facilities were clean. I guess there's a pool too but I never visitied it. Comfortable beds too!

    « Average »

    When I first arrived, I wasn't greeted with a smile or told that they would be right with me. Helped myself to a seat while the one desk person helped someone else. Stayed in a Suite with 3 beds. The suite bathroom walls and baseboards were scratched up. The bathroom in the main room didn't have a ceiling fan. For the price of this room, I would have expected much nicer. Breakfast was better than average.

    « excellent sleep! »

    we arrived here in williams lake for a night and decided to stay at the best western hotel. we made the right choice after having a great night sleep. the rooms were very comfortable and the bathroom was spotless...will be back

    « Nice Hotel. Helpfull, friendly staff »

    Excellent Service @ this Best Western. Very prompt & professional @ check-in, & different than some BW, they do recognize BW Diamond membership. Rooms were clean & they have family suites which is a big plus for us.

    « clean friendly and reasonable »

    Booked the hotel through airmiles. The check in was seamless, and friendly. the room was spacious, and clean. We went for a swim in the pool, it was well kept, and refreshing. The ladder at the pool had a few loose bolts, that could not be noticed unless you were swimming, and using it. I told the front desk, and they got me to show the maintenance man, right away. I was impressed with the safety attitude

    « good night »

    We were satisfied with this location and were glad that we chose the Best Western for the night. The location was close to the highway and was easy to find. The staff were helpful and every thing was delight full. Thanks for making our trip great.

    « Comfortable »

    Check-in was friendly and competent. The ground floor room in the back of the hotel is perfect, as the back door makes for an easy exit to a patio and wild-flower bank... perfect place to walk the dog. $20.00 per night seems a bit excessive for the dog, though. The breakfast was disappointing; hash browns and baked beans with no meat offered struck us as curious. There is a waffle maker, some cereals, and muffins and bread to toast. Room was clean and quiet. TV works, and I finally managed to fix the aspect on the TV so that not everyone looks overweight. (Why do so many hotels do that?)

    « Nice place »

    I stayed here previously and had a good stay, so thought I would book here again. The hotel is newer, the rooms are clean. The staff were friendly and the breakfast in the morning was a great bonus. The hotel is easy to find right off the highway.

    « Best Stay! »

    Comfort at the end of a long day on the road. Clean, well appointed room with free wifi and a couch so I could put my feet up! Front desk agent was friendly and welcoming. I have stayed here before and recommend this property to family and friends.

    « lovely room and very nice staff »

    We found the best western in Williams Lake to be very clean and comfortable. The bed was very comfortable and the room was large with a pullout couch and desk space and a little kitchen area. The bathroom was very clean and bright and a good shower. The pool was a little cold for my liking and the hot tub needed defoamer. The pool area wasn't the cleanest area, the tiles could have used a good clean and there was gobs of hair in places. The breakfast was okay but there was no spray for the waffle maker and therefore the waffles were sticking, some was brought out when we asked for it, Not a lot of choice for hot food, just beans and homefries and boiled eggs. No bacon or sausage. Maybe we just hit it on the wrong day. The staff on the desk was very friendly when we checked in

    « Excellent Complimentary Breakfast & Great Location! »

    This is a fairly brand new hotel that has a very easily accessible access point off of the main highway into Williams Lake from the south. The hotel was very clean and beds were very comfortable! Each room includes a fridge and microwave, plus a sink/bar area which was nice! Staff were great and were able to tend to all of our needs/requests. Excellent rates and we were blown away by the complimentary breakfast that this hotel offers each morning. Usually when you think complimentary continental breakfast, you think muffins, juice, yogurt, fruit. But this hotel offered a full breakfast including eggs, hashbrowns, beans, waffles, etc. - we were very impressed! We also quite enjoyed the pool and hot tub area of the hotel for a nice relaxing soak after a busy day of sightseeing. The pool and hot tub area were always very quiet too, often we would have the place to ourselves! Next door to the hotel is an awesome restaurant called The Laughing Loon which we walked to and ate at multiple times - I would highly recommend it! The service road infront of the hotel is also very convenient for travelling along to get to the Tourism Discovery Centre, McDonald's, liquor store, hiking trail, etc. I would most definitely stay here next time I return to Williams Lake!

    « Wonderful New Hotel, great accommodation but poor communication with Staff »

    Just a few things that became a little annoying, which is unusual for a newer hotel. Bathrooms didn't have a fan in them.. told Williams Lake Municipality wouldn't allow.. which seems strange as the room would steam up? Ice cold pool,but when we mentioned it to staff told they would pass message on to person who dealt with it... concluded it never happened as pool was cold all the time.... Breakfast was great, but when you get down at 9.30am staff would NOT replenish missing items... so get up early to get the full thing. Great free laundry inhouse!! The room was superb... very clean, modern and lovely hotel overall. Just a few niggles :(

    « Nice Clean - Convienant Location »

    I would definitely stay at this hotel again in the future. It was easy to find and had some easy to walk to restaurant and casino near by. We were just passing thru for the night and this was perfect. Also breakfast is good.

    « Overnighter »

    Probably the best hotel in Williams Lake. The staff are friendly, the rooms are clean and breakfast is good! I recommend staying here when traveling to/through Williams Lake. If there is an issue, the staff are very helpful and the owner is kind!

    « Stayed here a lot. Breakfast is so salty you are thirsty all day »

    Staff, rooms and location very good. Breakfast not so much. Seems to get worse each time, most things empty and have to wait for food a lot. So salty (and I like salt) I couldn't eat hot entrees at all this stay.

    « Friendly staff »

    Hotel was nice, central. Had wireless problem at 11 pm, staff came up immediately and were able to solve it with no grumbling and were very nice about it. Have stayed at this location 3 times with no problems and it is a nice hotel with a nice view of Williams Lake from one side

    « Williams Lake Best Western »

    Excellent place to stay, good staff, very good free breakfast. Hotel has a swimming pool, lots of parking. Rooms have enough room to be comfortable. Rooms have a fridge and microwave if you are staying for several days. Easy to find and to get in and out of. Rooms were quiet even though close to the highway.

    « Very Good Breakfast »

    Very nice hotel. Clean and comfortable. The breakfast was very good. Everything looked clean and well kept. The beds were very comfortable. The kids enjoyed the swimming pool and the hot tub was relaxing.

    « good hotel »

    Hotel was quiet and rather empty, but we had a great stay. Hotel is quite new. The room was clean and the staff were friendly. Got a good price. Even though it's on the highway, didn't hear much traffic. I would definitely stay again.

    « Clean rooms »

    I was impressed with the cleanliness of the hotel and the room that I was given. I was there for two nights. On the second night, I was awakened by the noise from a loud group in the next room. I called the front desk, and the night clerk handled the incident quite well - he visited their room and asked them to keep it down. The remainder of the night was quiet, and I got a good sleep.

    « Comfortable and good breakfasts »

    We stayed in the one-bedroom suite for 3-nights, and it was very spacious. Lots of room for a family of 4, and very comfortable. In the morning, it was very nice to go downstairs for the breakfast (included): Make your own waffles, assorted breads and cereals, scrambled eggs, baked beans, coffee, tea, and fruit. The kids enjoyed the pool and hot tub, so that added to the enjoyment of 3 days in Williams Lake :)

    « great option »

    A great option when staying in Williams Lake. I've stayed here a number of times. Nice rooms, comfy beds and very clean. I've found the staff to be friendly and the included breakfast has good hot and cold options. I will certainly stay here again.

    « Everything was great »

    From reception to the room, everything was very good. Suggest a room facing the back into the hillside if you want it super quite. A great breakfast with beans, hashbrowns and eggs. All very good. Indoor pool and hot tub. A small workout area with a treadmill and eliptical. A short walk to the laughing loon pub or try joeys grill.

    « Good hotel but service can be better »

    I stayed here last year as well, Stayed here this time around while driving from Vancouver to my home town. Building is good as its new but customer service n few other things can be better. You shouldn't have to say I m checking in, it can be more welcoming. Heat in the room wasn't on when i went in, It's small heating unit for such a large room, took at least couple hours to even feel a little bit of warmness.when it's -7 outside n such small heating unit I would recommend that should be turned on before arrival. For the dinner you have to go out. Pillows had stains on them, rather than removing them from the laundry those pillow were placed under the good ones that to me isn't the care you would have for your customers. Front desk staff except the young lady in the evening shift seemed energy less n lazy. May be its coz I work in hotel where staff is super friendly with people but I couldn't connect to the hotel as I should have been. I felt ok I got the room sleep, pay n leave. That's not the way. So I feel services issues should be addressed as its a great building and I can be much bigger. People I know prefer Quesnel BW these days while traveling from Vancouver coz it's not far n service is much better although tower inn is an older building.

    « Great Hotel for Pets »

    If you have a pet, this is the place to stay! The pet rooms have their own door to the back patio area and the rooms do not smell of a million pets which is rare. Great place to stay with your furry friend and the rooms are modern, clean and spacious. The free breakfast is also a bonus! Try to book online, search around for the best price because the front desk didn't want to match online prices for some reason.

    « Great option to stay in Williams Lake »

    Great hotel to stay in Williams Lake. Clean rooms, good clean lobby area, included breakfast with lots of options, courteous staff and quiet with highway access. Special thanks to Harjit. Would love to be back here again

    « Babysitting a Grandchild »

    Did a one day quick trip into Williams Lake to look after our 16 month old grandchild, so our daughter and son-in-law could really enjoy a staff Christmas Party and have no worries. Very pleasant experience, will stay at this Best Western again.

    « Dont book this through an online booking site »

    if you book this place through an online booking site you are almost guaranteed to get either an "accessible" room or one in a bad location (or both) Room was good and comfortable aside from it having Accessible handle and being located beside the elevator (the hotel was almost empty)

    « nice rooms, clean and comfortable »

    this place is right on the highway, it is always clean and comfortable. The breakfast is always a little marginal but there are lots of choices. The beds are good and the staff are friendly. Not a bad place to overnight!!

    « Middle of the road »

    A perfectly unremarkable hotel for a decent price. Parking was a little limited and access via a portage road made the entrance easy to miss. The room was fine and quite clean, beds were comfy, shower pressure was a little weak, and the breakfast was about what you'd expect for a complimentary breakfast (cold cereals, middling eggs, made-to-order waffles). The wifi was constantly kicking us off and dropping. When it worked it was fine. Overall, nothing too special.

    « Stay in Williams Lake »

    Always enjoy my stay there. Staff are always helpful and most important the beds are very comfy. Breakfast is better than most continentals offered at other hotels. there is something to eat even if you are gluten intolerant (eggs).

    « They treat my family like their own :) »

    We have stayed with the Best Western in Williams Lake since they have opened. We will continue to do so as the staff always goes above and beyond to make our stay not only pleasant but warm and welcoming. Every time we arrive its like we are part of a larger family and we are coming home to see them.

    « Dirty - Discusting »

    I have stayed many times in the past while travelling for work I have had dirty beds on three occasions and on the last one the second room they offered me had a dirty bed again Their housekeeping is not doing their job Terrible cause the rest of the place is good I gave them two more occasions to try and fix the problem and this last time was it for me Good luck to anyone else trying this place

    « Nice hotel with limited breakfast buffet »

    I really enjoyed my room - very clean, comfortable and quiet. Parking was cramped (especially for someone with a large truck). The breakfast buffet is quite limited and does not meet the standard of the Coast Fraser Inn.

    « Business trip to WIlliams Lake, BC »

    I needed a place to stay with a business centre, free wifi, and close to the highway.. I found everything I needed in one hotel. Close to lots of food and a great tourist centre. Nice indoor pool as well. The breakfast was very tasty, the room was very clean, large and staff very helpful. I spoke to other clients that week and no one had major complaints about the lack of cleanliness. The deposit is required but so do many other hotels. You get your money back if you don't make a mess. Cheers!

    « Great Comfort »

    The staff was very helpful and the hotel was clean. The room was very nice and the bed was VERY comfortable. If you have more time there is a great fitness area, with pool and hot tub. It is easy ti see from the highway and makes it easy getting on and off. Some eating places close.

    « Less than unsatisfactory »

    Upon check in they wanted a $200 deposit due to their past experiences with guests. I have a major credit card and didn't run into a problem like this before so I requested to view their policies that they had in place to ensure that this was mandatory. The manager refused to provide me with the policy for the deposit and took a tone with me. The bathroom was out dated. They didn't have any movie channels. The phone in the room was damaged. The guest assistance book was in very rough shape.

    « Don't Stay Here »

    There was food left in the fridge from previous occupants, phone didn't work, tv service ended at midnight - pool and hot tub were fantastic, location is good. Staff were super friendly and helpful. I was given a $37 credit for my troubles, but after paying for a suite @ $200+ it didn't seem like enough. After finding the food in the fridge I questioned the cleanliness of everything else. The carpet also needed a good wash. We stayed at the sandman the next night and it wasn't much better - good luck in Williams Lake!!

    « Great place to stay »

    Great place to stay, the staff were friendly and courteous. Breakfast was great and the pub down the block offered a great evening meal. As always, Best Western offers great value and excellent quality.

    « Williams Lake Best Western »

    Very nice hotel. Pool, Fitness center. Nice lobby. Breakfast. Fitness center could use a few more pounds in the weights area. Breakfast could use a bit more of a selection. However, free breakfast, shouldn't complain.

    « The best hotel in Willams Lake! »

    If your traveling to Bella Coola, Prince George or beyond from Calgary or Vancouver, this is your place to stay. You will not find a dated property at this place. Rooms are clean and comfortable and they offer a nice complimentary breakfast. Rooms facinh Hwy 97 offer a view of the lake.

    « Room size »

    Room seemed a bit small for 2 queen beds and a large chair and ottoman between the night table and the wall. Suggestion, maybe have more king size beds in this type of room. Since we had booked shortly before our trip we took the room with 2 queen sized beds. We have stayed there before and will stay again.

    « Best place in town »

    I've made it a habit to just book this place. Super friendly staff, a great breakfast and comfortable, clean rooms. An indoor pool and fitness centre. Not much within walking distance but a 5 minute short trip into town.

    « A very nice hotel for a small city »

    Positives: * The room and the stuff inside was in a surprisingly good, like new, condition * The room facing the back was pretty quiet. The only noise was coming from neighbors in the corridor * A clean washroom * Thick blinds * Comfy beds * Lots of parking * A good pub nearby * Great value - Located at the entrance to the city, no entertainment in the walking distance Definitely will be on my top list !
