This is the second motel we have tried in Fort MacLeod en route to BC and it was not much different from the last one. Overall cleanliness could be improved---opened the door to a bed with a pile of dirty? sheets on it, old food in the fridge, dirty glass with 3 dead bugs in it on the night stand,... More

Would be very happy to stay here again, clean & tidy spacious rooms with a breakfast included the next morning. If you need somewhere comfortable & safe to stay then this is definitely the place for you, also had free wireless which delighted the kids!

First impression wasn't great, looked like it needed a lick of paint. BUT: Hosts very pleasant & accommodating Rooms very spacious & comfortable. All facilities in good working order. Room quiet even though right next to a major highway. Self service breakfast more than adequate for our needs. If you need somewhere reasonably priced & comfortable (but not pretentious) then...

I booked site unseen using booking.com, and we definitely would have passed by judging from the looks of the exterior. We actually had a great night sleep, and the place was spacious with a separate bedroom, an actual working fan in the bathroom, and great wifi. The pillows were like pancakes and the beds were soft (squishy) but it was... More

We stopped after a long day on the road not expecting much. Very clean, spacious room and bathroom. Separate room for the second double bed. Comfortable mattress and working A/C. Friendly and pleasant owner even during a late night, no reservation check-in. Large at screen TV and coffee maker in the room. Price was reasonable for the area and time... More

This motel is a very simple place with 1960s style furnishings, but it has very hospitable owners who can tell you about everything related to southern Alberta, Canada. We enjoyed our overnight stay here. The price for this motel is extremely reasonable.

We had to sleep here due to a blizzard so it was not a planned trip to fort MacLeod. Despite the sketcky exterior it was nice and clean inside. We got a room quickly and I saw an actual room key for the first time in years! The wi fi wouldn't work, but there was LTE coverage so that wasn't... More

We were very impressed with the cleanliness and spacious room at this lovely little motel! The staff were very friendly and helpful. The bed was very comfortable and the room was set up in such a way as to mimic our home - with plenty of room for sitting watching TV or having a snack at the table. The free... More

This family owned motel is a wonderful place to stay. Good bed in a large rooms not filled with bulky furniture so you can't move around. Our room had three chairs and a table, a writing desk and we still could have played basketball in the space. Add the flat panel TV with many cable stations, free telephone calls to... More

Aptly named, you could watch one from your room. The Sunset is an older and well kept motel. I stayed in a satellite building which has a hallway/ vestibule area before you enter the room. It makes for a nice, quiet sleep as the adjacent highway sounds are muffled and not noticeable. The room was clean and welcoming (housekeeping on... More
