The rooms are clean and comfortable. The continental breakfast is quite well done. The pool and hot tub were clean and inviting. Friday night kareoke makes this the busiest spot in Estevan.

Spent 7 days here. The first room I got didn't have a window. Got moved right away to a room that a window to the outside. It wasn't very nice either. There are stains all over. The water there is undrinkable as we'll. I made the mistake of tasting it. It's nasty, and has a yellow colour. Also there is... More

Didnt expect much ending up here for work but seriously what a brutal place to stay for more than one or two nights...Lobby looked decent enough, climbed the old stairs that actually move if you step in the right spot then got on the top floor with wood panels and cinder block walls. Walked down the hall to my "non... More

We have work crews that have to stay out of town work. In August we had a case of bed bug bites all over one of our workers. over 150 bites! Terrible, Terrible! This employee has refused to stay here again. He had to throw out his gear as he was scared to take it home in case he infected... More

I stayed in the derrick motor hotel in april a year back.. i hope it has aged in reverse since then because the room was last redecorated in the 1980s. When we got to our room our light fixture was a bare light-bulb, and the wall in the hallway had been vandalized. The bathroom in this non-smoking room had several,... More

The "Derrick" is a well worn motor hotel with a bar and restaurant that is showing a lot of wear. It is affordable and convenient and popular as a hotel for the oil services industry. It is not a first choice for families if other more family oriented choices are available. There are definitely cleaner and spiffier hotels. The room... More

The hotel is showing it's age but for the price in Estevan it is just fine. Large room with fridge and microwave. Pool, hot tub and sauna...breakfast was good and organized much better than a lot of free hotel breakfast areas. Staff were friendly and nice to see a vending machine filled with healthy fare for a change.

I was pleasantly surprised. I was leary at first but when we arrived both the hotel itself and my room were clean and spacious. I will stay here again. They have a great assortment of breakfast items to choose from. You'll get no complaints from me and I'm use to staying in 4 star hotels.

We came in and the lobby was very appealing so we figured why not however after we paid it went seriously downhill. To start our room had a funky odor but we wrote it off, then the mini fridge was filthy, went down to the pool which the water was so cloudy you could not swim in it for fear... More
