Loved the authentic 60s styling, although the rooms were rennovated in the 90s. Very big clean hotel style room, good hot shower, comfy bed, excellent value. Exactly what we needed for a one night stop over!

I found that the outside of the motel didn't look the greatest but I was pleasantly surprised to the cleanliness of the suite I was given. Spoke with the proprietress, she was very friendly. Showed me the room prior to me actually paying for. The suite was clean as was the washroom, the kitchen counter, the sheets to the bed... More

We have stayed 4 times at the Satellite Motel. When Peter and his wife were running the place, it was clean. The last time we stayed, the motel was under new ownership and it was terrible. The remote was not to be found, the fridge was dirty. The walls were dirty. The floor, it too was really dirty. The new... More

Great place to stay, our ground floor room was clean and quiet. I appreciated having lawnchairs outside our door. There's a patch of grass in the parking lot, nice spot to sit and read in the lawnchair. Owner was friendly. We woke up very early so left before the breakfast was put out. Easy access from the highway.

Very convenient to the TransCanada Highway. GM Peter Shin was very accommodating (pardon the pun). The two minor problems we had were handled promptly. The room was relatively small but tastefully furnished and clean. There is a continental breakfast offered. The motel is a favourite of workers to the area (no doubt the price) so I would suggest booking early.

Older motel, needs some updating. It is good for the price. The only rooms left were smoking, the smell was a little strong, but we were only there for a few hours to sleep while driving through Alberta. Breakfest comes with with coffee, fruit and muffins.

Very nice little motel for a good price. Rooms are older, but clean and tidy. The owner was very nice and chatted with us, inquiring if we slept well when we came in for the continental breakfast in the morning. They served simple fruit, coffee, tea, and toast. We were happy to support a family run, independent business. It was... More

Save your money and stay at the Satellite. Our room was very clean, albeit a little dated, but the owner has obviously begun spending money on updating things like the bathroom and windows. Our room had 2 very comfortable queen beds, a bar fridge, microwave and free internet. The weather was lovely so we were able to sit in very... More

The satellite motel is a hidden gem for bargain hunters looking for a place to sleep. The owner is super friendly and the rooms were old but super clean and in great condition. I paid $55 for one night vs 110 at other hotels in the hat. Great motel highly recommend if your passing through and looking for a nice... More
