Rooms are dated and could an update. Carpets were very old but kept clean. Service is excellent with coffee on 24 hours, a good continental breakfast, and pet friendly. A good place for a one night stopover.

Had vehicle issues and ended up with a last minute stay at the lazy j. What a pleasant surprise. Nice large room, with fridge, nice tv, clean and quiet. Excellent bed, felt just like mine. Had a great sleep, went down in the morning because they offer free breakfast and I was blown away by the selection of goodies. Wow!!!...

After breaking down in the late evening in a brand new vehicle, John at the lazy J made sure we had access to food, a clean room and much more. His local knowledge assisted us with a solution in continuing on our snowmobiling trip to crows nest pass, unlike the dealership across the street that had no option for us....

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...
