This motel is old and shabby but its clean and the service is excellent. The indian restaurant downstairs has really tasty food. Some rooms are smoking and some are not, so the hallway smells like cigarettes. The rooms are outdated but very clean and well kept. Beds were incredibly comfortable. The man who worked at the front desk was super... More

Don't expect this to be a luxury hotel. Its definitely an older building complete with an "acid trip" carpet pattern in the hallway. If that stuff bothers you look elsewhere. Its clean, safe, and has a good rate. I was very happy with our stay.

The rude man at the desk people mention is probably the owner. That's who was at the desk when we checked in. We arrived on the Labour Day long weekend, he tried to charge me an extra $10 because I had two people staying in my room. If that was a problem, I was invited to leave but good luck... More

My wife and I stopped here during a bicycle tour through the area. Our room was very clean, well maintained and spacious. The hallways and entrance don't appear to have had the updating yet that the rooms have received. We were treated very well, even offered a storage room for our bicycles. We went to the restaurant for a snack... More

The gentlemen at the front desk is very rude. The room we reserved was a queen bed room. He told us he gave it away and only had a two double bed room. The room was dirty and the bathtub water ran the whole night. I asked the man at the front desk for a discount he told me if... More

After driving for over 10 hours with two small dogs in the car I had to stop. First I stopped at the Stop Inn, in Coleman AB but they were full and she recommended the Highwood as they were a pet friendly motel. My dogs are about 10 pounds each. I was charges $15.00 EACH and told to keep them... More

We booked two nights here for the August long weekend because everything else was already booked - and we were glad we ended up here! Yes its a dated motel, but its clean and well located for exploring the Crowsnest Pass. We spent two days hiking and fishing and had a clean and comfortable place to sleep each night without...

The decor is dated, but it is clean, and well kept. The beds are comfortable and obviously new. The real gem is the food. If you like curries, you gotta stop here - The best I've tasted, and I'm a serious foodie. The price of a stay won't leave you broke, and will leave you with plenty enough cash to... More

I spent three nights at this motel along with other work crew members and we were all satisfied with the cleanliness and room amenities. It is a trip back to the 70s but things are functional, clean and the bedding is comfortable. There is also a mini-fridge, microwave and coffee maker in the room. The non-smoking rooms do not smell... More

We only had to stay one night and were glad it wasn't longer. Not a great hotel and quite rundown. The sights were great but the hotel needed some sprucing up. There wasn't anything else around so we took what we could get.
