    « A second home »

    I stay here whenever I'm in the area traveling. Rooms are clean and comfortable. They have a reasonable complimentary breakfast. This stay unfortunately I was given a room on the bottom floor right beside the dining room. There was quite a bit of noise coming from the dining room and breakfast preparation area. Cell reception in the north facing room I was in was temperamental. I guess this was the tradeoff of having my room face the highway. In the past I haven't found any of the south facing room noisy. A little disappointing but it won't stop me from visiting again.

    A good hotel to visit when travelling in the area. Room was well appointed and you can never doubt the comfort of a BW bed. Breakfast had a good variety of items and the room was well laid out . Reception area a big plus, sitting area away from front desk and you could relax while you wait in a nice open area.

    Comfortable and clean. Hotel seems fairly new. Good nights sleep and excellent breakfast. Opened breakfast early for us so we could get to work. Would definitely stay here again when we are in Williams Lake.

    « Nice hotel for family »

    I quite enjoy stopping in Williams Lake at the hotel. They have a nice pool and hottub and their breakfast is good as well. We always stop here on our way through which is once a year. The rooms are clean and the beds are comfortable. We had an extra child with us so we got the family room this time and we were very happy that it had a king bed and two queen beds. The price was reasonable as well for this room. The kids always enjoy going to the pool. The staff are friendly and we had express checkout which was nice.

    Nice hotel nestled next to the lake ,the rooms are spacious and well kept with all the necessities you may have forgotten. The service was great and the express check out is a breeze. The best part of this Hotel is the free breakfast yummy and fresh .Don't forget your swim trunks and have a swim or a relaxing soak in the hot tub!!!!!!!!!!

    « Favorite Hotel in Williams Lake »

    Generally this is my family and I's go to hotel when we are passing through Williams Lake, the last time we stayed at a different hotel just to try and it only validated for us why we choose the Best Western. It is clean, the breakfast is nice and the staff is friendly. We well certainly be staying here again our next trip through W.L.

    « Conference »

    I attended BW for business and had a large group of people to accommodate. Management and staff were able to shuffle around some rooms to accomadate unexpected guests joining the conference which was greatly appreciated. My room was clean, bed was comfortable and breakfast was included, very convenient for my busy schedule. I appreciate that management was able to respond to my inquiry in a timely manner. It's a nice hotel and I would return when in the community.

    « Best Bet in Williams Lake »

    This is a small town with small town hotels. There are many and I have stayed in most. Best Western is your best bet as newer, cleaner and friendlier than the others. The rooms are fine, suites are better and worth the extra money.

    « Sparkling clean! »

    Just had another exceptionally lovely stay at this property. The staff were as warm and welcoming as ever and the attention to detail in terms of client comfort and cleanliness of the room was outstanding. After a long day on the road it's nice to arrive to a place that leaves you knowing what to expect each and every time. I would recommend room 103 to anyone wanting a quiet room yet close to check out and the breakfast room. There was a large gathering in the breakfast area last night when I walked by, but 103 was super quiet even though it was just down the hall. Thank you so much to the management of this property for maintaining such high standards. I look forward to the next time I'm passing through and need a nights accommodation.

    « IF YOU BOOK A ROOM AT THIS HOTEL - YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED »

    I have seen this hotel many times whilst driving by but never stayed there until now. Well I am sorry to say what was I thinking about not staying at this little gem. Right from the getgo this hotel ticked all the boxes I look for when I stay at a hotel 1. Great Room, very clean and quiet, excellent bathroom again, very clean - the breakfast bar was a notch above some of the better ones that I have had at other hotels, lots of tables, and very good choices of food especially for a breakfast included in your nightly stay. The staff are exceptional very friendly & accommodating check-on was very fast and efficient WIFI was perfect. Even though the hotel is right beside the highway it is very quiet it is easy to find as you come into the city, I like that because I hate trying to find hotels that are hidden, parking is perfect and there is a very cool Pub just 200' away.... All in all, I will be staying at this hotel again (and again)

    « Amazing!! Don't stay anywhere else. »

    We loved this hotel. The staff is incredibly nice and helpful, the rooms are beautiful and well stocked and the parking lot is huge. The information in the room included a list of places to get food and how much the delivery prices were. They had pots and pans, a microwave and toaster along with an almost full sized stove and fridge. We will not stay anywhere else in Williams Lake again. I would (and will) recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Williams Lake.

    « Well appointed rooms. All the amenities you would want. »

    The Front Desk Staff are polite friendly and very helpful. The housekeeping and janitorial staff do an excellent job of keeping the hotel spotless. Even the manager will pick up a mop to keep the lobby clean. Everybody seems to work together to give clientele the ultimate stay. If this hotel was in Vancouver we'd be paying up to $300. a night.

    I like the Best Western in Williams Lake, I have stayed there a few times. I have a lot of allergies and I find the place to be clean and well kept so I am comfortable there. The staff are very professional and friendly but what I noticed most is that they are very kind.

    « The best place to stay in Williams Lake »

    I like everything about this hotel. The ladies that work at the front desk make a point of making your stay comfortable. Very nice rooms, quiet throughout, along with a great breakfast! I have stayed at this hotel at least 10 times and it has never let me down!

    « Best Western Williams Lake »

    A relatively new facility with all the amenities one can expect from a hotel of the 21st century. The rooms are clean, sheets are crisp, the staff is professional and friendly. The breakfast is good and beats that of other hotels in the area. The carpet in the staircase to the upper floors needs replacing, but other than that it's a good value for the price.

    « Nice stay »

    We stayed for 2 nights at the hotel on a business trip in November. Once we got there, we realized that it was the same hotel that we had stayed at on a business trip several years ago and which we had found to be a good stay. The hotel is very nice and clean, the rooms are clean and well furnished, and I found the staff to be friendly and helpful. The bed was comfortable and the breakfast was fine, I am not giving the full five circles though because there were a couple of things that could be improved. - The first night, the room attendant had left about 4 little bottles of conditioner and one shampoo. I thought it was an oversight, but my colleague reported the same in his room. The second night the bathroom was stocked with equal amounts of shampoo and conditioner. - The water pressure in the showers was very low. If you have long hair, count on some extra time to rinse the shampoo out (if they give you any). I was in a hurry, so I resorted to switching the water from shower to tub and kneeling down in the tub to rinse under the faucet. - They use some very strong sweet-smelling cleaning product in this hotel. If you have sensitivities to perfumes, this could be a problem.

    « |Nice enough, very corporate, not terribly friendly, kind of formal »

    I have stayed in this hotel a number of times for a corporation that I work for.....it seems to be fairly new, and the buildings and rooms are in good shape....there is a warm continental breakfast each morning, and the rooms and common areas are cosy and roomy enough. I find this hotel to be a little lacking in friendliness, I recently asked the manager if I could store a keyboard for four days between two ten-day trips and was declined. Compared to the Super Eight down the road, or other Best Westerns, such as Penticton, it seems to be missing something in the very corporate atmosphere.......this hotel seems to have the environment of the Best Western in West Kelowna, another extremely formal location,,,,,,I would give it 4/5 for the building, and 2/5 for the overall atmosphere.... .......

    « Always a nice stay »

    Every time we travel to Williams Lake, we always try and stay at the Best Western. Not only is the staff great, but the hotel has everything you need. Comfortable beds and pillows, pool, hot tub, hot breakfast and a business area. There is also a nice lounge/pub next door that serves pretty good food that also has a really nice custom built wood pool table. We were assigned room 214 this time. Same as all the other rooms we've stayed in with our family of 4. It had 2 queen beds, cable tv and was able to have the fan circulating the air at nigh. We really do like staying here when we come to town. Highly recommended.

    « Good stay but lacking this time »

    I've stayed here several times. This time i was in for 2 nights. Great staff at the desk. Especially Sahwati. (I've probably spelled it wrong). Comfortable bed. This time the place seemed to be lacking on a few fronts. My room had burnt out light bulbs. The pictures were crooked and the empty toilet paper wasn't replaced. Also the room carpet was dirty. The included breakfast was also basic and not like it had been in the past. Tables were dirty as were the chairs. Just lacking the attention and not what I'd seen from this place in the past.

    « MY FAVOURITE PLACE! »

    Where do I start, I absolutely loved this place! Everything about it, from the wonderful staff, to the amazing views of the lake, and the great breakfast, words do not describe how amazing it was. My husband and my 6 kids, had a blast in our jacuzzi suite, and joining rooms, what more could we ask for. BUT WAIT! The staff made it even better by being so helpful, you know how it is with the kids, they LOVED the waffles and yogurt bar, where you could pick your own toppings, nothing a kid could get away from. I highly recommend this hotel to everyone going through beautiful Williams Lake, 11/10!

    « Amazing Experience! »

    My husband and I stayed on a recent trip and cannot say enough about this hotel! We arrived a little early but were exhausted from the long drive so we tried our luck at checking in. The lovely front desk attendant (can't remember her name) allowed us to check right in to a clean and comfortable room. The bed was perfect- one of the best sleeps we've had in a while. We loved the indoor pool and were so happy to use the exercise room after being stuck in the car. Everyone we encountered at the hotel was so friendly and happy to help us in any way. Breakfast was great and had many options, on top of all this- views are stunning. Will stay here again and highly recommend to all!

    « Well below value for money »

    On those rare nights I decide to spend a little more than bottom priced motels, I do expect more from provider. Overly mushy back-breaking mattress, overly humongous neck-breaking pillows, miniature tub, slow draining sink, babies crying next door, bathroom so badly laid out it's difficult to enter, TP and kleenex of sandpaper texture, measly packets of powdered coffee whitener in room, internet constantly cuts, water in miniature pool and hot tub is green and water entry all slimy...

    « The staff was the most helpful »

    So after a long ordeal with Wyndham we ended up booking online with Expedia, when we went into the hotel the lovely night front desk clerk couldn't find our previous paid reservation. So we check online and totally booked the wronge day, the staff was so good at first we thought we had to wait till it came threw on her end. She offered to get room ready while we ate dinner, then 8t still wasn't there so finally we noticed it was booked for the next week, of course booking threw Expedia we had to call them, the lady waited on hold while deal with a very busy check in time, waited almost 30 mins to finally explain that we booked the wronge time and that we needed them to correct it. Then she tried to get the points on our card but couldn't because we booked threw a 3rd party, what a pain. So anyways thank's to the staff for all the time effort and support , the hotel was so nice pretty new , newest in the puddle. Nice decorated front entrance good computer room everything you need. The room was super nice great bed and pillows, nice clean new couch not a scuff on the wall, not one thing to complain about, best view in the puddle, you can see the lake. So clean well maintained when we went to the pool which was lovely there was a lack of towles I called to the front desk and the staff didn't skip a beat, she was down there with clean warm towles, thanks again. So the breakfast is the best I have had for a free brrakfast, there is gluten free, almond milk in the back just ask if needed, there was 3 kinds of yogert not flavors kinds, two kinds of eggs, a meat, many breads and sweet treats, they stocked the fruit mid meal time, the staff is on head smiling away with anything you need. I will definitely be hitting g up some best westerns in the future.

    Our stay at the Best Western in Williams Lake, BC was great! We were greeted at check in by Annie the front desk clerk. She was genuinely kind and professional. It was nice to have someone who cared about customer service. Thanks Annie! The two queen kitchenette suite was perfect. Lots of room and extras like toaster and dishes and full size fridge. The beds were comfy and the bathroom was nice and clean. I will definitely be using the Best Western on our next stay in Williams Lake.

    « Grateful for compassion rate »

    Was in town for funeral and given a decent rate but.... first there was an unidentifiable bug on wall (seems it was a maple beetle), then I spotted previous guest's facecloth above shower curtain (when I was already in shower) and when I went down for breakfast at 8:30 (available until 9) there wasn't much left. Was discounted $4, sigh. At least the bed was comfortable

    There were several things in the room that did not work, but we have stayed at this hotel in the past and did not let this experience affect our overall experience with this hotel. The breakfast was excellent and well presented. The rooms were clean, but a few things didn't work properly. We have stayed here before, so this trip didn't affect our overall experience with this hotel. This is a great, convenient place to stay in Williams Lake. The people are friendly and professional.

    « Nice beds. Pleasant staff. But don't expect a good sleep or breakfast better than prison food. Better options nearby. »

    Whoever fitted up this location cheaped out and bought hollow metal doors which block zero noise, with strong automated closers that slam them shut extremely loudly. Every single door. Every single use. As soon as any person on your floor leaves their room, you'll wake up. Generally at 6am. Made worse by the main floor room being tile instead of carpet. And those hollow doors (with no soundproofing) mean you can hear every word from people walking down the hall. The main purpose of a hotel is to sleep. If you can't sleep past 6am, the location is useless, no matter how good the beds or service are. Also, "complimentary hot breakfast" is worth exactly what it cost - eggs from a box and pancakes made of starch and sugar. Tip - knock a few bucks off the room rate and just keep the oatmeal and fruit, it doesn't help your reputation to advertise a hot breakfast when it's garbage.

    « Helpful staff »

    I found the staff to be very helpful, firstly to accommodate a very early arrival, and later that day when I was having problems in the business centre. They were prompt to provide a solution, and seemed very pleased to be able to help.

    « Excellent hotel »

    This Best Western is only 5 years old and easy to find, when you arrive in Williams Lake from the south. We received a warm welcome at the reception. Our room was very spacious, nicely decorated and well maintained. A high King bed with excellent mattress, working space, plenty of electrical plugs, an individual coach and one for three, a huge flatscreen and a small kitchen corner with fridge, microwave and coffee set. There's enough space to lay and open our suitcases and, for the first time this journey, not on the floor. The bathroom is perfect with enough towels and beauty products from Pantene. WiFi is complimentary and very fast! Ear plugs are recommended because of all the traffic on the highway in front of the hotel. Complimentary breakfast is OK. Upon departure, you can pick up a complimentary bottle of water at the reception. The Laughing Loon restaurant next door was a perfect choice (see separate review). We were happy with our hotel choice in WL.

    « Great Stay Despite Wildfire Smoke »

    We stayed one night on our way to the Lower Mainland. Checking in was fast and easy. The clerk was polite and helpful. The rooms were good. The only issue, and by no means the fault of the hotel staff, was the lingering smell of wildfire smoke in the hotel. For those reading this, the city of Williams Lake was evacuated due to a wildfire and the smoke was certainly still noticeable a couple of weeks after the people returned to their work at the hotel. Overall great stay, nice room, fantastic hot breakfast. Thanks to BW staff at Williams Lake.

    What is there not to like about this hotel as a first time customer and a repeat customer in the future. The breakfast selection rivals menu restaurants, okay not quite, but you get the picture. From the moment you walk in the hotel you feel this is where I want to relax for the evening. Breakfast is free,which a crime, they should charge for that feast they offer.

    Basic in a good way. This hotel provided everything I needed for a business trip - the basics were excellent and there weren't unnecessary frills (except for the large jacuzzi in the room!). The breakfast was basic but substantial. The king-sized bed was comfortable and the room was a good size.

    « Convenient place to stay in Williams Lake »

    The staff at this hotel were top notch. I cannot give a fair evaluation of this hotel because this entire community has been facing wildfires and evacuations. Due to the wildfire issues, it would be unreasonable not to expect some maintenance issues to fall behind. Regardless of these issues, this hotel is very comfortable and clean.

    In Williams Lake during fires to ensure that town, emergency operations Center and public have phone and internet access. Super friendly family owner family. Since most of places were closed due to fires, they had fresh fruit, sandwiches and drinks set up in the lobby for free. Amazing. Room was very clean and comfortable. During evacuation they stayed calm and supportive. Love this place!!!!! PS. Duck taped the door to minimize smoke.

    Traveling South with family. As always the Best Western Williams Lake is a great place to stay. Always friendly helpful staff. Great rooms. Very large, rooms, comfortable beds. Always quiet. Great hot breakfast, with waffle maker, scrambled eggs, sausages, & hasbrowns. Has a pool and nice deck area but we are usually just stopping for a quick rest and do not get to make use of this part of the facility. Great place to stay. They have an extra large room with separate bedroom. Has 3 queen beds. Great for large families or travelling with a group.

    « Tired venue »

    Hotel gets high ratings for this town on internet sites. It is conveniently located next to the main highway with one half of the hotel overlooking the highway and lake. It is quiet. It is popular, 100% occupancy the night we stayed. We were enroute from the island to Houston for a family funeral. Allergies 101. Our room was top floor facing the quieter back side onto hillside. Entire hotel however is tired and the carpets and soft items in need of upgrading as if you have allergies beware. Staff were pleasant but could not change room due to occupancy rate and most likely all rooms are in similar condition. It was clean generally speaking but we'd not stay in this venue again.

When we arrived, there was nobody at the front desk (despite having 24-hour front desk service) and we had to call to get the staff person's attention. When he arrived, he looked disheveled and was not efficient with our check-in. The room was okay, generally quiet, but there was a hole in the ceiling in the bathroom that made us feel uncomfortable.

    The hotel is fairly new, staff are friendly, great breakfast, nice rooms. Indoor pool looks good. hot tub was very dirty heavy foam. located just outside of town. Not close enough to walk down town for me but for someone in shape? about 2 Kms. Laughing Loon pub and beer and wine store right next door (great place). great kitchenettes full stove and fridges, microwaves. clean. Showers are weak.

    Please review my comments for my overall review of my stay. I likely will not stay at your hotel...your walls are poorly insulated and other hotel guests are inconsiderate and loud. While hotel staff addressed my noise concerns with the involved guests, I was not given another room, which may have changed my decision to check out early. I could hear guests, crying baby, from other floors...as stated the insulation needs to be improved.

    I've been staying in hotels for eight months now and this was hands-down the most comfortable bed I ever slept in.

I will go back there again.

    Basic Best Western Hotel. But even being basic it is the best place to stay in Williams Lake. Good location just a couple minutes from the downtown area; right on the Hwy. Walking distance to a good pub and the casino. Room was clean and comfortable. Also very quite. Price was reasonable. The included breakfast was not great. Ok if you want cereal, toast etc. But the hot items (eggs & sausage) were poor quality and dried out. Friendly front desk staff. Will stay here again the only downside was the breakfast.

    « Needs some cleaning »

    Although the hotel appears nice the rooms ESP the bathrooms needed a good cleaning. We had a family suite and the king sized bed was hard to sleep on. The queens were no better some mattress toppers would help! The water is yellow in this hotel the hot tub was not balanced and bubbles overflowed it was disguising. Check in staff was friendly when our in room remote was not working properly. The breakfast needs fresh fruit options and more healthy options like cottage cheese or even gluten free options. The breakfast was still good tho.

    We arrived at around 8pm on Sunday night. We were assigned room 210. Just up the grand staircase and across the hall. Our room had 2 queen beds and a small, yet full size kitchen! It had a full size fridge, all the pots, pans, toaster, m/w and even a stove! It would have been awesome if we were to come here for a longer stay! We took a dip in the hot tub and pool before bed. The pool room is open until 10pm. We didn't use the exercise room but I took a look and it was nice. If I was ambitious enough, I would have... but I'm just not. The breakfast in the morning was hot buffet style. There were sausages (2 kinds), eggs and hash browns. There is a waffle maker to make your own waffles also. Hard boiled eggs, cereals and a section of fruit, yogurt, pastries, breads and hot oatmeal packages. There is also a selection of juices and of course, coffee. Our check in was great! I am not sure how to say his name property, even though I repeated it 3 times, I should have wrote it down and it sounded. However you say it, he was excellent! Quick check-in, and we didn't even have a reservation! We also had a quick and easy check out too. We were offered the express checkout, but we were not in a big rush. I highly recommend the Best Western in Williams Lake!

    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.

    I was driving through Williams lake en route to burns lake and I stopped over to stay the night.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    « 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.

    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.

    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

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 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.

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.

    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.

    « 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.

    « 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!!

    « 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 !
