Terribly overpriced, and the hotel staff could not find my reservation and tried booking me in without it. Restaurant was advertised for the premises but is only open for breakfast. The room looked dirty, none of the furniture matched and both the carpet and chair were stained. The carpet hadn't appeared to be vacuumed and the "non-smoking" room smelled like... More

This place was so bad it was laughable. Cigarette burns in furniture and bed spread. Carpet was filthy, we noticed that the room attendants weren't vacuuming as we were leaving in the morning. Bathroom floor was soaked due to an unattended leak in the plumbing. We stayed out as late as we could, slept with our clothes on and left... More

Let's start this off by saying that I have stayed in some pretty bad hotels/motels in the past. I booked this hotel before looking up the review (by accident) and believe me, from now on I will always read the reviews upon booking. I arrived in Saskatoon at around 1 am and was just spending an overnight there and upon... More

Graffiti covers the outside of the hotel, when we got to our room the door was already open, I can only assume from the looks of the place that crack heads had broken in days before (not noticed by or reported by management of course) and used the room to get high. Stayed in the hotel long enough to make... More

I don't know if there's any point to my adding a review- it's obvious a ton of people before me have had a similarly horrible experience staying at Northwoods. However, I feel like I need to lay out my situation. Let me say first that I lived in a third world country for 8 months and learned quickly not to... More

Made the mistake of getting a room for a week here, had ppl begging me for money and cigarettes in the parking lot, woke up to someone trying to break in my vehicle, woke up to a sketchy character banging on my door who was probably drunk/high asking to stay in my room and borrow money, had valuables stole from...

$200.00 a night for a terrible hotel room is way too much. Doors and windows did not lock properly. The bathroom lock was just hanging there. Tub was disgusting. There was nothing good about this room. We checked out the next day. Would not advise anyone to stay, only at your own risk. This is not the safest area.

Stay at your own risk. The peep hole on our outer door was just a hole , I felt the wind in my eye when I looked through it. The magnetic door handle was loose and was ready to fall out. The carpet was sticky,crusty, and disgusting. We had paid for two days in advance before seeing the room so... More

Where to start? 1) Place is run down totally, parking lot like bomb craters 2) Expedia is $50 higher than motel 3) Black mold in room - Pic attached. 4) Cops were staking out the place. They followed us to the next door Ramada (after cancelling) and were laughing with us on the right decision to leave, day 5 of... More

Do not stay here! 79,- for a night is a "special price" they say. I have seen Hotels for less in a much better condition. You have to be paid for staying there in my opinion. Very noisy rooms and dirty. Staff is friendly but that´s the minimum to expect. And by the way: breakfast is ok but you have... More
