“Boil Water Advisory”
Reviewed 24 September 2012

I had a reservation at this hotel for today September 23 and arrived after travel from Vancouver after a cruise. When I arrived there was a boil water advisory posted on the entrance. I was not notified in advance of this and was very disappointed that I couldn't have been emailed by Best Western. Luckily, the clerk was able to get me a room in Revelstoke and I ended up in a beautiful room in a very new hotel. I'm glad it wasn't already dark and the drive wasn't too far. I just couldn't handle the bottled water thing or worrying about greeting sick while on my 5 week trip.. I'm surprised no one else has mentioned this boil water advisory on trip advisor.

Stayed September 2012

I am so sorry that we did not reach you to inform you about the water advisory in Sicamous. We have outlined the challenge on many websites and talked about it previously on Trip Advisor and our team has contacted thousands of guests this summer regarding the advisory but we must have missed you.

Sicamous experienced some flash floods in June that left suspended sediment in the lake where our water supply is drawn from. The local municipality is still waiting for the sediment to completely settle out before removing the boil water advisory. In the mean time, the water is perfectly safe to use for bathing and we are providing all the bottled water our guests need at no extra charge.

We hope that you can stay with us sometime in the future

We stayed in this hotel both on our way to Calgary and on the way home. It was recommended to us by a friend and it certainly was a great place to stay. Very clean, and great service. I am handicapped and the staff couldn't be more helpful.

My wife and I have stayed in this Best Western several times and always get great service. The rooms are clean, large and both the old and new sections are a nice surprise from some other Best Westerns. The breakfast is plentiful and a good variety. I'm very particular for cleanliness when it comes to swimming pools and the pool is always pristine clean.

Room Tip: for diabetics they have sugar-free syrup, just ask, it's in the ding area fridge

Our family recently stayed here for a little two night getaway on our yearly trip to Kelowna. We were expecting your typical motel but the Sicamous Inn was a pleasant surprise. First of all, our room was large and comfortable with a larger bathroom than most hotels. The room was quiet even though it is close to the highway. The grounds behind the motel are beautifully cared for. The patio overlooking the Eagle River provides a picturesque scene and the large lawn area and flower baskets are lush. We enjoyed using the indoor pool and hot tub and also were charmed by the outdoor hot tub/outdoor fireplace area. The complimentary breakfast had lots of variety and we once again enjoyed the outdoor tables and beautiful landscaping in this area. Everyone was very helpful and friendly, from the office to the housekeeping staff. We will definitely recommend this Best Western to friends and family and will certainly return ourselves.

Room Tip: We stayed in the older building and were quite satisfied. It is a little further back from the high...

Sicamous isn't overflowing with decent hotels but I REALLY liked the Best Western and would stay there again for sure.
.....because I booked through Hotels.com I was pretty sure I would be assigned a room in the older section of the hotel, and sure enough I was. Well that was absolutely no problem as the rooms are big, obviously recently refurbished, very clean and comfortable. People gather on the walkway outside for evening refreshments, and although the view is the car park, Tim Hortons and the highway - its quite pleasant. Behind the older block is a lovely lawn area with a small patio overlooking the river. Breakfast was excellent and there is also an outdoor area which is charming.
The only slight beef I had was with the TV which had bad reception and limited channels but overall I was very happy.
Water problems are ongoing, but it was no problem as they supplied drinking water.

Room Tip: You have to climb a flight of stairs to get to the top floor of the older block, so if you have mobi...

After a poor experience at another Best Western in Edmonton we were unsure as to whether we should stay at another and were so pleased we tried again. We stayed a night at the Sicamous Best Western and it was clean, spacious, and exactly what we needed (especially with four kids!). Breakfast was nice and there was alot of space to sit (some hotels don't have such a large area). We didn't get a chance to use the pool but went to look at it and it looked nice, we will certainly consider staying here again next year! Staff was very friendly and helpful, overall would recommend this hotel to anyone!
