Stayed here with my Mom so it was nice to have the separate bedroom. The bathroom was spotless, as was the whole unit. Alex and Elizabeth are very accommodating and kind. You can tell they care. Will definitely stay here again when the opportunity arises. And the bonus is, the price is very reasonable.

Seven of us on bicycles did the International Selkirk Loop and stayed here during one of our stop overs. Elizabeth was very helpful. She explained all we needed to know about the rooms and gave us tips on where we could get a good meal e.g. the golf course about 2 Km up the road. The rooms were clean and...

nothing fancy, just a nice little motel that gives you everything you need at a reasonable price. the Artisans area is walkable from the motel and the golf course and restaurant is a short drive away. worth the ferry ride to this charming village.

We stayed here on stop over before heading along the somewhat renowned Gray Creek Forest service road to Kimberley. The property is a few minutes from the Kootenay lake ferry and very easy to find. We checked in and were courteously received. The room had all basic elements including a little fridge, good beds, decent TV and WiFi. The rooms...

The perfect accommodation during my stay for Starbelly Jam, owner Elizabeth secured me a cute little kitchenette, with sofa bed and separate bedroom, full bathroom, impeccably clean and well appointed. While I was working my shifts and enjoying the festival, my hosts managed to slip in and ensure I had all the necessities I needed. A bit of a walk...

We spent 10 minutes in the room and couldn't bare a moment longer. Left before we even unpacked. Odour felt toxic and unsafe for our family (especially a child). Owners refused to refund us for the night. They have a sign ("Payment required in advance") - now I know why. Female owner claimed smell is from the fire retardant that...

Reviewed 16 July 2015

The location suited our needs, the owner was extremely friendly, the room was clean. The place definitely lacks atmosphere and the room was small, it would have been better as one large room rather than 2 smaller rooms. Quiet. Crawford Bay is a quaint little town, the Artisan shops are great, be sure to check them out.

Thank you for choosing Crawford Bay Inn. I am glad to hear from you about our services and your recommendations regarding our rooms. Having frequent male workers, cyclists and golfers preferring separate bedrooms is the reason we have separate bedrooms instead of one large on with two beds. Also glad that you were able to enjoy the nearby artisan shops...
