We stayed here because we had no choice, there was absolutely no other rooms available in the city of Edmonton, we used our own blankets and pillows that we had in our vehicle, I never removed my shoes including in the shower and can't imagine how every piece of furniture and bedding could be covered in burn marks and holes...

I have to say this is by far the most run down, poorly kept, filthy motel I have ever seen. My boyfriend and I are staying in Edmonton for the weekend and ended up staying here because EVERY other hotel was booked. So after dealing with the sketchy service at the front desk we enter our room to find that... More

Do not stay here.This was the worst motel I've ever stayed at.The walls and floors were dirty. The room was hot - there was one window without a screen, but with it opened you could hear everything outside

Not a very exciting place but we needed a place to stay while travelling through Edmonton at night. We checked in at 2 am, no issues... Room was clean (which is not always the case with motels) and the place was quiet. We got a good night sleep and were out in the morning. It had the basic amenities and... More

I really liked the staff, the guy cared, asked us all the time if he could do something for us and if it was everything okay, the room itself was quite small but suffiecient for overnight stay, rooms were clean and it was really cheap, so i would totally stay here again

Nothing too fancy but good value for the price. Room was clean and had all the basics - fridge, microwave, iron, etc. Location was the biggest plus - right on Whitemud Drive and Highway 2 intersection. Service was okay but as expected for a budget motel.

This was the worst motel I've ever stayed at. The room smelled like cigarettes and old food, even though it was a non-smoking room. The curtains were tattered and full of holes. You could see into the room from the balcony. The lampshade and sheets were stained. The tub made noise. Something else was making a loud scratchy noise all... More

The room was clean and the front desk guy was friendly. Room decor was a bit dated but functional. Best thing was location, I was in town for work and could get around town pretty easily. I would stay again.

I was booked to stay at the Derrick Motel for 3 nights and had chosen it because it was advertised as a good value, dog-friendly motel. When I arrived, however, I found out that the rooms were inexpensive for a reason: the curtains didn't close all the way (the big window opened onto an open walkway/balcony, used by other motel...

I had a good experience at the Derrick. Mainly because of the staff. It is an older budget hotel but the rooms were clean and actually quite decent (I had a renovated one). But the front desk staff was friendly and accomodating if I had any problems. They faxed a bunch of stuff for me and didnt' charge anything. I... More
