Our room was clean and comfortable. The facility has had a few anniversaries since it was built, but it was a great value. The bed was the quality we offer in our own home. It was nice to get up feeling refreshed from a good sleep. The owner/operator couple was friendly, and personable. They wanted to know what we needed...

This property is rundown and in need of a massive cleaning. There were dirt/dust piles along the baseboards and our socks turned dark brown from the floors. The bathroom had hairs in the sink and dirt/mildew in the grout. The check in area was cluttered and the breakfast/beverage area was sticky. Dated furniture is ok - dirt is not. A...

The Lazy J was clean and fairly comfortable. We had a handicapped room with outside access and it would have been helpful if there had been a handicapped spot right outside the room with a little extra width for the wheelchair. Some of the furniture in the room also impeded moving the wheelchair freely. Bathroom was clean and well laid...

Very friendly, stayed here in 2012, 2014 & 2016. Very good location, on our way to Alaska. We don't look for fancy motels, If it's clean, with Frig. and microwave, that's all we need. They have a continental breakfast.

I phoned ahead and got a pet friendly room with direct outside access on the ground floor as requested. The continental breakfast had a variety of choices which was quite good. My friend and I had separate bedrooms which afforded us more privacy.

We are a no frills group. We look for safe clean and convenient. The room was clean and spacious. We loved the fact that we had three beds, two of them in a separate room. All the amenities were there. We will stay again. If you are looking for clean, quiet and convenient, this is your place! They have snacks...

I came across the Lazy J complex in Clareholm that offered motel, lounge with pizza joint attached and gas station. The motorcyclist Tri-Fecta, though now adding convenience store to the mix for an unheard of Quad-Reacta! It was a weird motel as some rooms had exterior doors and others didn't. I asked for a ground floor walk-out if available and...

The staff here are extremely polite and very friendly. They advised us where to eat, and certainly went above and beyond to help us out. The rooms are very dated, but clean. You have a fridge in your room which is nice. We had a good nights sleep. The breakfast the next morning was good, and it was a nice...

We have been to the Lazy J twice in a four week period. We flew in to Calgary in early September and stayed one night, room 104. We were sufficiently impressed to book two nights on our way back from the U S A, three weeks later. It's easy to find, plenty of parking, comfortable beds, a microwave and fridge...

We found this motel clean with comfortable beds. Also a great breakfast selection of baked goods, fruit, juices and cereals. The staff were very friendly. A good place for an overnight stop in a rural Alberta town with reasonable rates compared to the completion.
