This hostel-like lodge has many of the things you expect of a low budget option but none of the bad things. Most importantly, it is very clean and well organized. Great value for money. First time I've had a room for $60 and not had something to complain about. Not bad location either, just a bridge to downtown.

I spent 8 nights here while visiting someone in the University hospital. The rooms are as clean (or cleaner) than any I've experienced in hotels, the kitchen is well kept and the staff are friendly. For the price, I couldn't have asked for more. Keep in mind if you're booking a room, the walls are very thin. Through the week,... More

We arrived late in the evening and we paid for the room for 2 nights and then we saw the room which was really tiny with no amenities, not even a bathroom in the room. We were too tired to look for another place but did look up the listing on the website and it does not mention anywhere that... More

Hello Karen K, I am not sure when you stayed but we do have one of the rooms with its own bathroom.Many nights guests have there own personal bathroom as no one else shares with them that night. We also have a sister hotel within a 3 minute walk up the street under our management that has its own 4... More

So we called and there was "room at the inn". Nothing extravagant but a place to sleep, very clean quiet and comfy. complimentary coffee and tea as well as full kitchen to use... More

Laura's Lodge is a large house with many different rooms across from the hospital and university--good location not only for students or visitors to the hospital, but just walk across the bridge and you're in downtown. Nice, clean place to stay that is central and about half the price of a hotel room. It's a little like staying in a... More

We spent 8 nights here while visiting our University student daughter.The hotel prices are high in Saskatoon,so I looked for an alternative. It is directly across from the hospital and 3 blocks to the University.It is very centrally located to the downtown core as well. Extremely safe area,never any concerns.We walked the area every night. The Lodge is spotless,as other... More

Clean, quiet, cozy, well-lit Pleasant staff. Situated conveniently close to hospital, university, shopping, the river. Would definitely recommend Laura's Lodge for an affordable, pleasant night's sleep! I spent two weeks here and found the living quarters comfortable.

Travelled to Saskatoon to visit a friend working at the University of Saskatchewan for a week. Location is great, the closest bus stops were a block away. You can even walk to the university 4 blocks away and catch a bus from the bus loop where almost every bus in Saskatoon passes by. For those of you brave enough, you... More

My only complaint is with the manager. Being a student working the overnight shift in Emergency into Xmas eve morning, I made sure to ask if sleeping a few extra hours in the morning would be acceptable. I was informed it was not an issue since nobody had the room booked and was not given a specific time for checkout.... More

I am sorry you ended up with this issue. You rented another room for 12 nights and not this one, and we allowed you to stay in this room, which was your friends room, and we gave you a specific 3 hour late checkout. When you asked to stay till 6 PM, I was unfortunately unable to accommodate such a... More
