A Quality Gem,
of a Little Motel.
Just up or Down,
It is with great pleasure that I introduce this little motel operation, and when I say little that is exactly what I mean. There are only four units, but they are probably the most beautiful well laid out little kitchenettes that you will find anywhere.
I had the pleasure of staying in unit #1, seen here with the door open and the entrance light on.
Harrison Hot Springs is only a 90-minute drive east of Vancouver and less than three hours north of Seattle.
How to Find it
The quickest route here is via Highway 1, taking exit 135 at Bridal Falls. The route I prefer, at a somewhat slower pace, enjoying the scenery of Hwy 7, through Mission.
