“Nice views and comfortable stay”
Reviewed 26 October 2013 via mobile

We walked in from a long days drive with no reservation and check in was quick. Our room was clean and comfortable and on the second level which had a balcony that faced the lake. It's easy to see from the highway and easy access to the main streets in Williams Lake. Food is a short drive away. I recommend this place.

Every time we drive through Williams Lake, we look forward to this Lodge. it is close to the corner of east-west, south-north. Shopping centers, restaurants and fast food but more important, it is clean, the rooms are spacias/large, the beds are good, warm and clean showers and very friendly staff. Prices are very good too. I hope to be back more often.

Room Tip: Cabins are on the end and have no higher floors so lno unit noise

My wife & I made an overnight stop in Williams Lake and picked the Drummond Lodge at random late in the evening. Our kitchenette was classic 1950s, but very well maintained, and perfectly comfortable. We woke up to a view from our deck of a well maintained lawn & trees overlooking a little lake. The managers were very friendly and their breakfast was a choice of fresh fruit, croissants, toast, yogurt, and good coffee--to a background of unobtrusive classical music.
We were so impressed that we booked it for our return stop, and were once again delighted with the lodgings, breakfast, and the pleasant couple who run it. (This is a much better stay than the standard impersonal chain offerings)

Room Tip: The motel has two sections: a newer two story building of rooms, and an older range of cottage-like...

This was a very nice surprise for us. The room we stayed at in the Drummond Lodge had its own deck which overlooked the lake. Also an easy walk to Scout Island. Our room was clean, friendly owners and excellent breakfast. Great value!! Would stay there again.

Room Tip: Choose the rooms at the north side of hotel. No one above you and all have decks overlooking the lak...

I concur with the other reviews. Clean and pleasant rooms, good beds, erratic wi-fi but a better breakfast than I expected. All at a good price. Friendly owners.
My only complaint? Opera as a background to breakfast isn't a popular choice. How about something a bit more middle of the road?

While travelling north we spent night in Williams Lake. Drummon Lodge was right choice. The lodge is by the lake we had room with the view. Room was clean, excellent service, full breakfast reasonable price, friendly owners.

Room Tip: Room with lake view.

I've stayed at Drummond Lodge Motel regularly over the past 15 years or so, with AND without my husband, and though for awhile, it was getting pretty shabby and run-down, it has now had many renovations done on it. Last month (September '12) was the first time we'd book in there for about three years, and were pleasantly surprised at the "face-lift" the place has undergone. The unit we had had a full kitchen, separate bedroom with 2 Queen beds, glass patio doors opening off the bedroom onto a fairly small but adequate verandah over-looking Scout Island and the lake. The "apartment" was spotlessly clean, and the staff extremely accomodating. There was a hide-a-bed in the livingroom, making TV viewing comfortable. Our only "complaint" is their terrible wireless internet. THAT hasn't changed since we were last there! You can't count on even being able to get a signal a good part of the time, and when you do, it's usually very weak. However, it's STILL our top choice of where to stay in Williams Lake.

Room Tip: Ask for #12. It is actually a "small apartment", with a separate bedroom. The only thing...
