I stayed here based on trip advisor reviews and reasonable room rate. There is a lot of construction and renovation going on right now. So, it might look a bit sketchy from the outside. Don't let that deter you. I stayed in one of the king rooms. Everything was fresh and clean. The bed was very comfortable. Flat screen TV,... More

My crew and I live from hotel to hotel, out here working on cellular towers. After staying here I think we have found our second home. Freshly renovated rooms. The rooms are spacious and up to date. Everything works, no smell or odor from the carpets. Nice flat screen tv. Plenty of towels. Loved my leather couch in my single... More

The upgrades have been refreshing. The rooms are bright, clean and comfortable. The breakfast was so tastey and served in a quaint country kitchen. I wittnessed the breakfast lady being kind and not put out when asked to assist a family. Reasonable rates and the staff was eager to make sure our stay was pleasant. We are excited to see... More

Wow! What a great deal for the price. Yet again, even while going through major remodeling and heavy construction, far exceeded the normal motel stay. Very polite, courteous, friendly and helpful staff, great continental breakfast, clean and comfortable rooms. I would give them 10 stars if it were an option. This was our second time to stay with Brimark and... More

We stayed here during the Summit League basketball tournament. This was our second stay in the last six months and both have been great for us. We stayed in this property off and on for the last 35 years and the current owners and management have done a great job of updating. With the exception of a cramped bathroom, you... More

My husband and I stayed here on March 14th. I found a coupon online and decided to call for a reservation. The man I talked to on the phone didn't know about the coupon and finally gave me the reduced price. This hotel is easy to get to since it is right off the interstate. Our room was cozy, clean...

My wife and I stayed at the Brimark Inn for the weekend of March 7-9th. We selected this property due to the reviews on Tripadvisor. The price was great, $140 total for the two nights, the room was clean and freshly painted, with very comfortable beds. The breakfast was excellent with a good choice, except for no meat.

Stayed at the Brimark Inn on December 15, 2013. Rooms are very nice, clean and well kept. Staff is very friendly and polite. The breakfast is excellent and the lady serving breakfast was fantastic. Restaurants, Gas Station and interstate are very close by. Had a great stay. Will certainly stay again on the way by. Sylvia Schmidt Sylvan Lake, Alberta
