5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

The rooms are very clean and the staff are polite.

Waking up to a complimentary hot breakfast (which was great) started off our day well.

The only issue we had was it was quite dry in our room. I noticed it a lot because I just had eye surgery (just bring a humidifier for these cases), but just ran the hot shower for a bit and that helped a lot.

Other than that it was a really lovely stay and would go again.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

My husband and I stayed here on November 24th as we were in town for a concert and did not want to drive over an hour home. We often stay at night or two over once a month (typically downtown) and decided to try the Best Western Plus Blairmore for a change. Check in was easy and the man at the counter was friendly enough. Pleasantly surprised with the room. It was a good size, nicely decorated with comfortable furniture. Even the bed was reasonably comfortable. Pillows were decent.
Shower was good, the shower head was actually designed for a tall person. My husband is 6'3" and always has issues with this but he easily fit under it. Pressure was slightly better than the typical hotel.
I typically ask for a room on one of the higher floors away from elevators as I prefer less traffic. I requested this and a room on the north side as per reviews I had read. The hotel accommodated this request which I appreciate.
The only thing I would change about my stay would be breakfast. Complimentary breakfast is offered which is a plus for the hotel however, it runs from 6am to 10am. It was Sunday and I find10am too early to end for weekends. We went down at 9:30 and it was packed. The area for breakfast I find very small for the size of the hotel. There were no tables when we first came in as there was a kids sports team at almost all tables. I found the breakfast area set up awkward as there was hot food and cold food at opposite ends and it counter was shaped in a kind of "z" and had inaccessible areas if one person was in the same area. Breakfast itself was good and had all the usual items.
Overall good stay and I would consider another stay.

Room Tip: End of hall on north side is quieter. Go to breakfast early to avoid crowded area particularly on we...

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to review. Your compliments are appreciated! Our breakfast room is actually a little larger than what Best Western requires. However, even with that it can get a bit crowded when everyone comes down all at once. We apologize for the inconvenience that caused for you.

Thanks again for your review and we hope to see you again soon!

Very nice, clean hotel... staff was very attentive and helpful. Easy access from the Saskatoon airport, even with snow packed roads. Busy location with hockey nuts.... arena next door to this location. Price was good as well. My view... snow everywhere... view not very important this time of the year.

Room Tip: Call ahead, very busy location, if they cannot help you they will find you another place to stay

After reading reviews for this location, I decided to book for 2 nights and was very glad that I did. I was travelling alone and wanted a peaceful, quiet room so they booked me into a room away from the elevators, ice machine and stairways. Very nice!! My view was towards an open field, also nice. The breakfast each morning was a pleasant surprise as the choices were more than expected (included in the room price). There is a waffle station, cold cereal with fixings station, toast and toppings, eggs (done differently each day) and bacon/ham, yogurt, fruit and more!! AND the best hot fresh coffee ever! Back to the room...clean, quiet, new, nicely decorated, and a window that opens for fresh air. The location is great as Reitmans, Walmart and other shops are a quick walk across the parking lot. Definately will stay here again.

Room Tip: Room was on 2nd floor looking towards highway and open field (not looking onto a parking lot). When...

We stayed two nights here with our 4 and 6 year old kids. We normally stay downtown at the Radisson or Sheraton which are great, but wanted to try it since it got excellent reviews here, plus we got a good price on the room ($143 per night + tax for 2 queen beds). This hotel is pet friendly and has free parking. It is located in a newer area of the city, about 7-8 km to downtown. Our kids enjoyed the pool with waterslide, although the water temperature is a bit cold in both the pool and hot tub. The hotel is next to the Shaw centre - a big fitness facility with leisure pools. There is also a large outdoor playground and small skate park for kids just a short walk away. There is a Walmart and Tim Hortons within walking distance (No Starbucks anywhere close!). It is a noisy hotel full of kids and sports teams running up and down the halls so bring ear plugs if you are a light sleeper. Breakfast was typical for BW with lots of choices: eggs, hashbrowns, sausage, cereal, bagels, bread, muffins, yogurt, canned and fresh fruit, waffle maker. If you like coffee, let's just say you will want to run to Tim Hortons across the street. The staff were extremely helpful and very professional. The rooms are spacious, clean, and beds are comfortable with lots of pillows. Overall a great stay and would recommend this hotel to families or tolerant business travellers.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the top floor to avoid feeling trampled on by running children

I stayed here for 2 nights with my 3 and 4-year old in July. We were in town to help my parents pack up and move to BC, so we needed to stay in the hotel once the house was packed up. Previous reviews swayed me to give this hotel a try. The kids loved the pool and waterslide, the room was very clean, the morning breakfast offered a great variety and vast selection. The staff were very polite. While the location may be a little out of the way for some as the hotel is on the outskirts of the "west" side, it only took us 20 minutes to make it back to the "east" side of town. Just be careful along the "highway" from town to the hotel - you may want to go fast, but obey the speed limit. We saw cops stationed along the road twice nabbing speeders.
