This is a great little restaurant/hotel combo, family owned with great value!!! Our company has had guys staying in their kitchen suite rooms for 2 months now. The owners and employees are very friendly and on the hotel side very accommodating. I have had my family here on project with me as well and it is a great place for... More

This place is pretty good. You get what you pay for. Management was very accommodating, stayed up and waited for us to arrive. Rooms are decent sizes, kitchenette was very nice to have. We shall return, it was well worth the price.

Our group needed three rooms located side by side. When we booked earlier, we were told we could have them but when we all arrived, we learned this wasn't possible. However, the impossible was made possible with a bit of fussing and after that, all of us were very happy to be staying at this motel. It is older but... More

The cheapest in town to get in at. Not exactly what you call welcoming staff. Rooms we're clean, so good enough for us! Definitely old looking. Would stay here again if we come across to Drumheller again.

This motel may be the closest one to the Royal Tyrell Museum, but considering the small size of Drumheller, nothing is far away so avoid this motel ! Our room was very smelly of stale cigarette smoke from years gone by even though we were told adamantly this definitely was their non smoking room. The two beds were cheap mattresses... More

We have stayed at this property twice, once four summers ago, and again, just this month. There is a good selection of room sizes from singles to rooms with full kitchens and an additional bedroom. Really nice for families. Four years ago a lot of renos had been done and we were pretty pleased with our visit. We were having... More

This place had the lowest price in town but only by a few $. It's a very basic old-fashioned motel with cigarette burns in the bedspread and stale smells. Although the rooms were clean the overall impression was that it's a dump.

We recently stayed one night, but would not stay more. Price is good compared to other lodging in the area. Newer bathroom, but I would remove the carpet, (lots of stains ) and just put some sort of hard surface flooring in. We were very disappointed with the town of Drumheller, here they have this world class museum, and it... More

Based on generally good reviews, we decided to stay here, preferring a mom-n-pop place over a chain. Check-in was easy, and the staff friendly. A room with two doubles cost us around $100. The room was a non-smoking room (it even had a no-smoking sign on the door). The smell of decades worth of stale cigarette smoke was disgusting. Within... More
