You can't go wrong with all you can eat crab legs. Prime rib roast complemented the main attraction as well as a tremendous selection of deserts and side dishes. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone and everyone.

We stayed here overnight on a Saturday and it was a pleasant stay, no real complaints. The exterior of the hotel is a little deceiving because the rooms are a little dated especially the bathroom but all the conveniences are there. A slight drive from downtown Fort McMurray but I would stay here again.

This hotel is dated, dismal and dirty. Don't be fooled by the grandeur of the lobby. All you have to do is turn the corner to see for yourself that the carpets in the hallways at the very least need to be vacuumed, but they are so worn they should be ripped out and replaced. Most of the vinyl wall... More

Stopped in for dinner a couple weeks prior to Christmas. The choices and quality of the food were all good and amazingly quite fresh. Great dessert selection. My work colleagues ordered off the menu and were equally pleased. Did not stay at the hotel, but might consider it in the future.

The first time I stayed here was by mistake. My office was supposed to book me in at the Best Western in town and instead booked me here. Although I was disappointed by the mistake I was pleasantly surprised by this hotel. Yes the decor in the rooms are dated, but the bonuses the rooms come with are exceptional. The... More

They had a great buffet previously.....but with the market downturn......they have really cut back. I believe that they should be trying to retain and build on their reputation...not go the other way. That being said the staff are some of the best servers in Fort McMurray.

Dear FmmFoodie, Thank you for commenting on our buffet. A few months ago we had a consultant come in to assist us with ideas on how to make improvements to our buffet. We have followed through on a number of recommendations. The changes have been well received. Some areas of the buffet were downsized while others were enhanced. The intention... More

Housekeeping?? What House keeping??? Never came to do the room and by 5:30 I had to request it 2X. Very dated 1st floor, quite disappointing after seeing all the upgraded pics when looking for a hotel. The staff was VERY friendly however

Dear shaloze, Our first floor rooms were renovated a couple of years prior to the other floors and thus have a different look so I understand your comments. We have done some upgrading this year to bring a more modern feel. I have shared your housekeeping concern with our team to ensure better internal communication to provide the service we... More

I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights in September 2015. I had a second floor room which was well furnished with a flat-screen T.V. queen sized bed, sofa bed, mini fridge, iron/ironing board etc. However, the room is in need of a refurbishing. I could tell that the carpets needed cleaning (asthma, hence sensitive airways) and the general appearance... More

The lobby/reception was very welcoming with its vaulted ceiling and very appropriate décor. Staff were amazing! Room was modern and aptly decorated and amenities were great. The complimentary bottled water and biscotti were very much appreciated. A great place to be!
