Excellent hotel, terrific location right between Chinook Centre (about 2 blocks north) and Southcentre (about 5 blocks south.) Great selection of restaurants close by, and even a delicious pizza shop next door that is open until 2am. Room was very clean, bathroom worked fine, and the three pools (including a children's wading pool) were clean and a good diversion for... More

We stayed here for one night. Chose this hotel as it had a pool and breakfast. Room was a bit smelly.. Old smelling faint cigarette smoke. Looks like they might be doing some renos (which is needed) carpet was pretty stained. Pool/hot tub were clean. Front desk staff was friendly, although I did ask for them to check to see... More

This was my forth time staying here in the last few years. The front desk staff are always friendly and helpful. On this visit, Marie was extra helpful in assisting me to extend my stay, despite the hotel being booked up. She's an angel. The included breakfast is modest but adequate. The pool is available for recreation. The rooms and... More

Room was horrible. Smelled like an ashtray. Front desk, management was my helpful at all. Bathroom was dirty and moldy. Wallpaper was falling off the walls. A/C was about as powerful as a poof of air. Overall not worth a penny. We left our luggage in the vehicle for fear of absorbing horrible smell. Don't stay here.

We stayed here twice in the past 2 weeks. Both for 2-night stays. The first stay was OK, but the 2nd..OMG. The rooms are VERY basic, certainly not worth the price charged. We had booked both stays in advance (at the same time), otherwise we probably would not have returned. When we checked in the 2nd time, it was late... More

We stayed at this hotel again, and as usual, the staff were very friendly when we check'd inn. The guy that made the reservation however had a lot of trouble because he was new and had a hard time understanding me, and me understanding him. I told him that he could just find me in his computor to make things... More

I booked my room months ago for Stampede July 3-12th, 2015 at a rate of $125.99 for a specific room. Yesterday I got an email saying because it's during Stampede they will not be honouring my reservation and they can rebook me at the rate of $259.99 for my room. It doesn't matter that I have booked it with a... More

Fairly decent room for the price. Stayed two nights with the usual late night party noise outside the room next door. Not-accessible friendly, i.e. no grab bars in washrooms, breakfast room upstairs, third floor, no elevator. decent wi-fi, and pool. Pet friendly - ground floor rooms with exterior access.

The staff were very accommodating and allowed for early check-in if I was willing to switch my room preference, which I didn't mind doing, and they were very kind about making sure I had everything I needed and were also willing and able to get me a room inside the hotel on the first floor so I didn't have to...

I have stayed here many times! It is very close to chinook mall, and not too far to ikea and the big box stores. The staff is very friendly and the rooms are clean and it even comes with a continental breakfast. . I stayed here with my mom when my youngest was only a couple months old and we... More
