We've stayed several times starting when it first opened. It's no 5 star but it the best place to stay in this town.... It's definitely seen better years. They were doing something to the 3rd floor as we were woken up early with intense vacuuming directly above us. Our kids thought someone was playing a racing game. I'm hoping they... More

Sorry your last visit was so disappointing. We are in the middle of upgrading the third floor with new paint, carpet and drapes. I am trying to improve all aspects of the rundown building. Hope you can bare with us as we continue to get these upgrades completed More

It's a small town, so not much is available. The AC didn't work in the room we were given, so they moved us to a room downstairs where the room seemed cooler, turned out the AC didn't work here either, but being half underground made it cool enough we were able to sleep.

A solid place to stay. Clean, very friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again even though I usually look for 4+star hotels. Everything worked, smelled and looked clean and not tired at all like many at this level. Great local golf course nearby.

We did not know what to expect in Cardston as we traveled through Alberta, but we were pleasantly surprised to find the South Country Inn. The room was very nice, and the staff was friendly enough. We would recommend the Inn to anyone who might be in the area.

My husband stayed there for a weekend while we were there for a family reunion. The place is definitely basic and out-dated, but it was good for what it was. They had a decent size fridge in the room, which was nice. Although, it seemed like our room never got cool enough for my liking. They do have a great... More

My husband and I stayed in the jacuzzi room which, for the price, quite impressed us. Our expectations were not high being that we decided to stick to a travel budget on this road trip, so when a jacuzzi fit into the budget, Magic! Our room had fridge, microwave and free wifi. Bed was comfortable. Not the cleanest I've been... More

An older hotel but well kept and clean. The room was basic with queen bed, fridge, microwave, blow dryer and old style bed spread. The bedspread was quite faded so I convinced myself it got washed often;-) The weather was quite warm during our stay and we did not have air conditioning in our room so it was quite warm... More

Thank you for your positive review. The bedspreads do get washed often and I am working on getting something new. The AC pumps both went down this year and we are continually working to make it better. We have abundant wildlife that come to visit in the community. More

We would agree with other reviewers. It's pretty simple, but decent. The owners are quite nice and do their best to make everyone feel comfortable. Decent enough if you're passing through town and gives you a decent roof over your head and bed to sleep in.

So this hotel is older but really clean. The people are friendly, and it is generally quiet. The beds are comfy which really makes any hotel a success! Today was a really hot day so we needed the air conditioning but it really couldn't keep up. That was probably the only complaint I had. If you're crossing the border and... More
