After visiting Head-Smashed-in Buffalo Jump, this sweet little place was what we needed. It had air-con, kettle, coffee machine, fridge/freezer, hair dryer, comfortable beds and good wi-fi. It was also a short walk to supermarket and the local Resturant. The place is old but clean, comfortable, affordable and the gentleman at check-in was delightful.

This light housekeeping room was small but functional. The bathroom door wouldn't close unless you threw yourself at it. Took over 2 minutes to get hot water at the bathroom sink and it didn't stay hot very long before getting cold again. An overweight person would have difficulty fitting between the narrow walls on either side of the toilet to... More

Reasonably priced accommodations with easy access from the one-way highway couplet that bisects town. Modest and clean room with added bonus of small kitchenette (includes bowls, cups, etc). Walking distance to a few restaurants and a grocery store. For a quick stopover on your road trip, this is not a bad option.

We stayed here one night to cut down on the total driving time, and to take in Buffalo Jump the next morning. The owner was at the desk when we checked in and was efficient and very friendly. The room was clean, but there could be more attention paid to the nooks and crannies in the bathroom. The kitchenette was... More

The bedding and towels were very clean, but the rest of the suite needs a thorough cleaning. The host was very friendly and helpful, but it seems the housekeeping staff need more direction on getting the suite up to par in terms of cleanliness. Not sure if we would stay here again.

If you are travelling east to west towards BC rather than stop at Lethbridge consider driving another 60 ks and staying in Fort Macleod. The Fort Motel is clean, well equipped, good bed, good TV, and is priced less than Lethbridge Hotels. It is a small Historical town with a good grocery store a golf course. The owner here is...

The title says it all. I had a lovely time chatting with the owner. I appreciate the motto on his card: "Where history comes to life and smiles are free." History particularly came alive when we visited Head Smashed In Buffalo Jump just 15 minutes away from the motel.

It's an old style "drive up to your door" motel but that's not all bad when you have luggage, etc. to bring in. Rooms are very clean, finished with wood paneling, small kitchenette with mini fridge, microwave, toaster oven, some dishes and cleaning supplies. TV works well. Beds are on the soft side but not uncomfortable. And they have a... More

Room was tidy, clean and extremely well equipped. Coffee machine had the best coffee I'd had on this trip. The bed was very comfortable and the shower was really powerful. The room had all the appliances etc that previous reviewer had stated. The owner was really pleasant and informative. It was also the best value room we'd had on our... More
