Columbia Valley B&B
Ranked #18 of 19 Golden B&B and Inns
Reviewed 9 August 2006

My wife and I stayed there in early August after reading the description in the BC Accommodation Guide. We called and made a reservation at $105 per night.

We found the Inn located right on the edge of Highway 95. The Canadian Pacific Railway line also runs by, just below the Inn.

Our room located on the upper floor had no air conditioning, internet access, nor coffee maker. It was sufficiently cramped that we had no room to open both our suitcases. The small TV received only three channels -- none of them local with current BC news.

Because the room had no air conditioning, and it being a hot day, we had to leave the sliding door open all night. With the highway less than 100 meters away, and the train tracks approx 200 meters, we got very little sleep due to trucks and trains passing by all night.

The proprietor represents himself as being an Austrian chef, and we had dinner there the night we arrived. I ordered weinersnitchel, which was comprised of a small slice of pork, dipped in a crumb mixture of some kind, and fried until the crumb coating was burnt a deep brown on one side (most of which I scraped off). The vegetables were cold, and the bread seemed to be day-old. For this, I was charged $17.95 plus tax. It was the worst meal for me, of our trip.

We truely felt cheated, and wished we'd stayed at one of the chain motels in Golden, where would would have received considerably more value for fewer dollars.
