Dirty, smelly, dead bugs smashed on walls, wallpaper pealing off wall, hairdryer does not work, house cleaning staff are two JHS kids! Horrible! We booked because the location is close to our oldest daughters house...very disappointing!

Room Tip: do not book

We went to a concert at chateau st Michele ( another review) stayed at this hotel because it was close. Hotel needs some work but was good value and good location. Breakfast should have been done somewhere esle but they tried ( we got up late) rooms were large ( older style hotel) and interesting in a funky way ( rotary dial phones) and one in the washroom)

This is a very basic motel which is overpriced, shabby and out dated. We booked on Expedia and paid CAD$400 for two nights!! The room was in dire need of a facelift. The walls were marked, there was mildew around the windows, mould at the top of the bathroom door, stains on the bathroom ceiling, scuffed paint around the bathroom door, tiny threadbare bath towels, stained chairs and a strange floral smell emanating from under the bed. The hotel was advertised as providing breakfast; it does not, it provides snacks. There was a toaster and no bread and nothing to put on the bread even if there had been some, a waffle iron and no waffle mix, instant oats and no boiling water. There were overripe bananas on one day only, yogurts in the fridge which only one of us could eat, chocolate chip granola bars and bags of chips. The only positive comment I can give the Totem Lake is that there was free WIFI and the guy on reception helped us fix the toilet. Seriously just save your money and stay somewhere else.

Room Tip: Go somewhere else.

Hotel is clean and quite. The location made it easy to get to lots of locations in the area. Room decor is a bit dated but is well kept. Rooms have USB ports and 110 volt sockets in the lamp bases for easy charging cell phones, tablets, and laptops. All in all a good experience for a reasonable price.

My mom and I stayed at Totem Lake hotel while visiting family. It was by far the most reasonable option in Kirkland. It's got an eclectic feel to it that reminded me of a state park inn, in a good way. The decor is a bit dated, which really didn't matter to me. I think they are doing some updates little by little. The bed was super comfy, and I slept great all four nights despite normally having lots of trouble sleeping. The staff were all very friendly. There is a small continental breakfast on the lower level with bananas, apples, cereal, toast, waffles, coffee, OJ, and milk. There is also a DELICIOUS Chinese restaurant on the lower level called Alta Healthy Cafe. The food was so good, we went back for dinner another night. The front desk has 15% off coupons for hotel guests. The hotel is very conveniently located near the Evergreen Hospital, which we were visiting. It's also right by the ramp to the 405. I went jogging three days--there were plenty of sidewalks, and I felt safe by myself.
