We had booked this room through a booking service and they undercharged us but the front desk honored the price that was quoted and gave us that rate. That means a lot to me. Other then the décor being a little dated the hotel was fine. The price was reasonable and the room was clean and comfortable. It had all... More

Older decor but very clean. Bed was comfy and the overhead fan was better than air conditioning. Extra pillows and in-room coffee pot were nice, too. Appreciated the huge parking lot. Breakfast was only toast on the first morning in spite of being there in plenty of time, but many more choices available on the second morning. (Different person in... More

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

We booked our room in March for July travel, and when we got there, found out they didn't have the reservation because they'd canceled their contract with Travelodge. However, the manager was nice, found us a non-smoking room on the first floor with a fridge and microwave. The room was large, very clean, smelled good. The AC worked really well.... More

Very quiet, enough parking area, reasonable breakfast and room facility were better than what I expected. Manager is kind to greet customers and always be there for customers needs. I stayed many motels and hotels but this motel is one of the Best Motels in Southern Alberta. I would stay here again.

My room was not clean, stuff on the bathroom walls, stinky. I asked for a non smoking room but did not get it and I was traveling with two children. Overpriced. Not a place I would take my family again.

This hotel has clean rooms, however that is the only nice thing. The beds were hard, the soap is just a refill soft soft dispenser that we used up in the first few hours because there was barely anything in it. The shampoo in the shower was a refill as well and NO soap in the shower. The hotel stinks.... More

The desk staff was terrific. The young lady was friendly and very helpful. The hotel is older but had been renovated, it was clean & comfortable for a great price. The restaurant was under construction. The breakfast was minimal. The bed was very comfy.

Thank you so much for your feedback! Your comment means a lot to us. We will open the restaurant in the near future and that time you will be able to have better breakfast for free. When you have a chance to come by here again, we can definitely service you better in many different ways! Thank you! :) More
