This hotel was really the only choice in Cardston, or at least from our perspective. The rooms were clean; the staff were friendly; the location makes it easy to find. Nothing outstanding but certainly adequate.

This is a very well managed hotel and has an indoor pool, massage serve etc. Located right downtown on the main road through town. It may be aging but the room are kept very clean and are comfortable.

A photo of a bear troming through early snow taken by the owner of this hotel caught my eye right away. The hallway has several othe prints from the same person. The room was large enough, clean, comfortable. Starting to show age and will need some upgrades soon. The shower was one I could have stayed in for too long.... More

Front desk staff is great! Very friendly and informative. Rooms are adequate but are starting to show their age. Carpets are stained in places and could use a good shampooing though. Having said that though, the cleaning crew does a good job and I didn't find any stray "belongings" found in many other hotels. Bathrooms were very clean and we'll... More

Like other reviewers I was wary about the hotel and apprehensive as to what we would find. In fact, the rooms were large and had a microwave. To be specific the room was like a "Jack and Jill" room set up: a queen in one room, a bathroom, then another queen. Good arrangement for our purposes. There wasn't any breakfast,... More

This was much better than anticipated. We were travelling through to Montana and Waterton didn't have anything available, so we had to book in Cardston. TBH, I had low expectations considering a) it is in Cardston and B) it was $98/night. Our room was very clean, beds were comfortable. It had a pool for the kids which was a bonus.... More

We just stayed the night on our roadtrip. Liked the location;easy to find. It is on main street so you can go for a nice walk. The hotel pool was large. it looked like it was also across the street from the town's pool. The restaurant that shares the parking lot was closed for the weekend, but it was easy... More

I can be short and sweet about this motel; it's flawless! Right upun arrival we were greeted in a very friendly way, and he actually invited us to take a look at the other hotels in town, and he was pretty sure we would come back. That wasn't necessary, the place looked and felt good, and it was! Very good,... More

I spent a day walking in Cardston and stayed for one night at the South Country Inn. I chose it because it was considered to be the best in town, if so that’s not saying much! The hotel is much like a Travel Lodge or Quality Inn without the franchise inspections. To be fair it was adequate, but even though... More
