“Paradise it truly was!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2010

Our stay at Paradise was just that, paradise! Located just a short walk to the Shuswap and such a beautiful town with so much to see! The staff were great, very friendly, accommodating and the manager even went out of her way to make sure that we had everything that we needed, including the area information, what to do and see! Our room was very comfortable and clean, exactly what we were looking for. Out of a trip through BC, this was our favorite place we stayed at! I would recommend staying here, the prices were very reasonable and we will definitely be staying with Paradise again this summer!

We decided to visit Sicamous for the weekend, and decided to stay at the Paradise Motel. We had such a nice time. The motel is so relaxing. Our unit had a kitchen and the property has a great BBQ area. We were a block from the grocery store and 4 blocks from the beach. We didn't use our car once. The staff treated us so well, and are so knowledgable about the area. Our room was spotless and had such clean smell when we checked in. For such a little motel, we sure felt like we were at a 5 star resort. The pool wasn't open yet, but we are going back in July, and can hardly wait! I don't tink we will need to leave the property. If you are visiting Sicamous I highly reccommend the Paradise Motel. This is our new spot to stay at.

Our team had booked the hotel because we were coming to play in the Senior Ladies C Provincials for Fastball and there was nothing but problems. At first we thought it was a great bang for our buck but as it turned out, we will never stay there again and we made sure that the organizers of the tournament knew about this as well so that they can inform people in coming from out of town in the future.

Our team utilized three of there rooms (the 6 person room, a room for 4 and a room for two adults and a baby). We only had the exact amount of people that was alloted for each room. When we decided to use the BBQ area for a team dinner, we ensured that we were only using one of the three BBQ's and that there were two other tables for other hotel patrons to use. Apparently, this was not ok by the hotel owners as they proceeded to physically attack our coach and assistant coach because we were eating our dinner. The other hotel patron's at the other table were shocked by what was happening as the owners continuned to verbally attack our team and saying things such as there were other hotel guests that would like to use the BBQ's and the BBQ area but that our group is intimidating. Now I am not sure how a group for women between the ages of 25-38, some of whom are married with children are intimidating while we are enjoying some burgers and salad but apparently the owners thought so.

Anyways to make a very long story short we have heard from various locals that the owners are like that to a lot of people and many of the guest that were at the hotel when this occured could not understand it either and many of them said they would never stay at the motel again.

Sicamous is a great community and there are many hotels that are all close to shopping and grocery stores for great prices, so please do not stay at the Paradise Motel because you might be laying assault charges on the owners before you leave.

I recently stayed at the Paradise Motel with my ball team for a tournament and had the worst stay as soon as I pulled into the parking lot. I have never seen owners of a business treat their customers so bad from threats of being kicked out in case we were thinking about over filling a room, to actually getting physical with the coach of our team for no reason. The owners were completely rude and their accusations were ridiculous. No one from our team once was disrespecting any of the hotel rules and to treat each of us so terribly was appalling. I would recommend never to stay at the Paradise Motel in Sicamous it was a terrible experience and the owners were physically and verbally abusive.

Participating in the Ladies Senior Fastball Provincials our ball team chose to stay at the Paradise Motel. Upon arrival we had a great check in without issues. That was the only positive aspect of our stay. Our ball team was very respectful of rules set out by the owner/operator from only using plastic cups around the pool to only having 6 people to the room. However, we were still treated with great disrespect. The owner was very beligerent regarding where we were allowed to park, accused us of having too many girls to a room (we had 6, as expected), we ran out of toilet paper in the room and then were accused of stealing because we used a roll from the other girls room, and the worst inccident came about when we had a BBQ in the appropriate area where the BBQs were set up. Our ball coach (retired RCMP) was cooking burgers when the owner came up and told him to get off the BBQ (there were 3 BBQs, 1 being used by other guests and 1 available still) He said no problem we are just about finished. Approx. half an our later the BC fastball rep came by to say hi and the male owner came over and told him to leave as he was not registered as a guest. He then proceeded to yell at our coach about being on the BBQ too long (our coach offered him money for propane use) the owner then threatened our coach and physically pushed him into the BBQ!!! What a way to treat patrons. Thankfully our coach wasnt hurt and just left before the situation escalated any further. The owners were both clearly intoxicated and were the most disrespectful, in your face business owners I had ever experienced. As a final note, I spoke to other families that were staying there and they had very similar incidents as well, proving that it was not our baseball team that was an issue. Should anyone stay at this Nightmare Hotel, I warn you that you may have a very shocking experience.

We have stayed at this place numerous times, and the owner and staff are so friendly. The place was very clean, and we like the fact that it was a kitchenette so we could cook our own meals. The grocery store is within walking distance. Conveniently located and within walking distances to everything in Sicamous. High speed internet was very useful, and the bathroom brand new, with heated floors. Very nice. Will most likely stay there again, as the price is very reasonable, especially if you stay on a weekly basis. Highly recommend this place.

I am a commercial sales agent and have been staying at the
Paradise for the past 5-6 years, usually for two nights at a stay.
I appreciate their mini kitchens, which allow me to buy groceries
at the store a few blocks West and cook my own meals! A joy not
to have to eat in restaurants when spending most of a year on the
road as I do. I have never had a dirty room, the toilet fixtures may
not always be the same colour - but they are immaculate.
It is certainly not a hastle to wash a few dishes since all is provided - look at the rates, what do some folks expect? The owners here are understanding and when reserving I just give
my name - try that at a major hotel.

I give the Paradise excellent value stars for dollars spent - far
better than franchise operations!

Sign me, Road Warrior Pete.
