I always stay at the Rez. Great in room facilities, love the full kitchen. I cannot be bothered to eat out every night when on business and this works well for me. The building is a bit older than some and I have heard a few comments about plumbing and a/c. I've never had an issue myself. Internet was bad... More

I lived in McMurray for a number of years and am still back there regularly. On this visit I decided to forgo my usual hotel standbys in Gregoire for something downtown. I stayed in the Inn, not the Rez. The pluses for the Podollan include its location (getting on/off 63 is super convenient and there are lots of places to... More

You commented on our renovations and I just wanted to add that the renovations are not complete. The room you were staying has not been renovated as it will be one of the last... More

I stayed at the Podollan Inn during the spring Home Show. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the staff were helpful and courteous. Overall, good value and no problems. I would stay there again, no doubt.

Would recommend anyone to stay here! The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Customer service at it's best! The room was (let's just say) more than comfortable and very clean. The Pub in the hotel was equally as good. Service was great and the food was amazing!!!! Looking forward to returning. It will be the ONLY hotel we stay at... More

Thank you very much for your kind words. We are pleased that you enjoy the heated underground parking and have experienced the owners passion for good customer service. Even though his driving foot is known to be a bit heavy at times, I trust the ride was comfortable. The beds and pillows were chosen for their comfort and we are... More

The Podollan Inn is a perfect location to access the lower bench (old Downtown) and now very easy to get to the upper bench of Fort McMurray. The rooms are well kept but also extremely comfortable (bed and pillows are better than home!). The amenities are also excellent. Food: the continental breakfast is a crisp way to start your day...

Fort McMurray is a working town, not a vacation destination. That being said, the Podollan Inn is comfortable, clean, and employs friendly and helpful staff, exactly what one needs after a hard day's work. The rooms are well-appointed, have flat screen televisions, and the free internet is a rarity amongst business class hotels. The spa toiletries in the bathrooms are... More

Was in town for a Xmas party in the Pub. Our company had the banquet room rented out for our party. I came here because it was obviously convenient but really enjoyed the stay. Checkin was quick and easy, clerk at front desk was helpful. We had a king room and it was great, very clean room, shower was huge,... More

This was honestly the worst hotel stay ever. I was politely asked to pack my things and leave the hotel at 11am even though I'd made reservations for a multi-night stay. Baffled, I'd asked what the problem was and they told me they had complaints about traffic to my room. I insisted they had the wrong room, offered to show... More

Melanie L, Director of Sales at Podollan Inn, responded to this review

This is an unfortunate incident. When it is believed that illegal activity had transpired or is about to occur, we ask for early departure. The credit card charge received was only for the one night stay. At check-in we do require a pre-authorization of a credit card for both the stay and a damage deposit. This is standard practice and... More
