Laundromat Reviews

Watermark Beach Resort (Osoyoos, BC) ***** (out of 5 stars)
Okay, so here’s the thing. I go through a lot of onesies in the course of a week, so I figured I’d be doing a lot of these laundromat reviews… except that most hotels and motels seem to have in-house laundry facilities these days. Nothing glamourous, mind you. Usually just a coin-operated machine next to the housekeeping unit. Nothing like the Melville Laundromat, with it’s stellar reading materials and pinball machine (see below). All this to say that this review page is a bit shorter on content than I had anticipated. But the other day we discovered an in-house laundry service that is definitely worth mentioning: high marks for the facilities at the Watermark Beach Resort in Osoyoos, BC, where the washer and dryer are actually – wait for it – RIGHT IN YOUR ROOM. No coins necessary. Just throw in a load and put your feet up. Wow. A memorable laundry experience, to be sure…

Melville Laundromat (Melville, SK) *** (out of 5 stars)
– mix of old and new Wascomat front loaders and Huebsch Originators
– nobody on staff, but there was a number to call if you needed change
– excellent magazine selection (Bow and Antler “Bucks and Corn”, Reader’s Digest “Whales are People Too”, Guideposts “Dancing with Faith”)
– bonus points for the “I (heart) Hockey” pinball machine
