The motel was very clean. Cannot comment on breakfast as we did not try it. Not a lot to really complain about. The beds did seem small. I did try asking, prior to the room being booked, if the beds were Double size or Queen size. Arriving without the knowledge of what size of beds we would have, I then... More

The room was clean and had all the necessary items. I did not cook for myself while I was there but the kitchen area included a microwave, bar size fridge, coffee maker, and 2 burner electric cook top. I checked the supply of pots and pans etc and it looked complete on a cursory review. The bed was comfortable and... More

The short: false advertising of services and pricing, expensive for only average motel, quite a ways out of town. Not recommended, there are better and more honest places in town. The long: checking for a room to stay one night in Athabasca we came across this place on booking.com. It showed a queen room with one bed for $99 which... More

We forgot a laptop charging cable in our room. I called in the morning to ask them to look for it. I called in the evening, only to find they hadn't done that yet. I texted the mailing address to the owner at his request and offered my credit card number for express postage payment. He didn't want the credit... More

One bed had recent residue, obviously the sheets had not been changed from prior customer. Carpets and windows very dirty. Bathroom very old with mold growth. Other than having to sleep on top of the... More
