“Very nice hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2008

My wife and I stayed here for one night on our way back to Calgary from Spokane, and this was the best hotel of our trip. The hotel looks new, and our room was large and clean. We would stay here again.

Hi, everyone: I stayed at this motor inn for 3 nights, mid-August. While the hotel is clean and new, it is not much different from any other Best Western Motor Inn/Hotel. The so-called restaurant is an open-concept coffee shop- bistro with a very limited menu. However, the food and beverages are superb! Evenings found this little place full with local ball teams, hotel guests, and locals.

I was travelling alone and the room I was given was large, tastefully appointed, and had a queen-sized bed. The bedding seemed cheap. And I wondered about all of the extra, seemingly useless floor space in my room and the itty-bitty, teeny bathroom! The large tub (in the oh-so-typical tub-surround style) and the toilet are crammed into a little room that most people will find they must enter first, and then position themselves to close the door, only THEN to be able to use the facilities. Strange room design. (I must say, the new rooms and the FANTASTIC beds and linens at the Days Inn nearby are far superior to these accomodations.)

I always try to choose a hotel with a swimming pool or jacuzzi so I can relax after a long day of work or travel. While this motor inn advertizes a pool, they fail to mention that it is small and generally FULL of kids screaming, splashing and having a gay old time. And who can blame them... the pool has a water slide. However, any thought I had of winding down in the pool in the evening went out the window, quickly! Too bad.

Internet service is available. They have a computer near the Business Office that you can use, too. All of this costs money. $4.50 for 20 minutes time on-line. Really 'good' hotels offer free internet access.

Front Desk and Reception staff were very nice, helpful and checked in to see how your stay was progressing whenever they saw you pass by. I appreciated that customer care and attention.

Now, the big question: would I stay there, again? Yes, I would but it wouldn't be my first choice. I shall keep exploring!

  • Liked — great coffee and Ceasar Salads in the lobby
  • Disliked — No full service restaurant; no adult time scheduled for pool use (ex: late evening)

We were fortunate enough to stay at this hotel on the Friday night of the August long weekend. It was awesome and clean which makes a big difference. There are way too many sub-standard hotels on the trip from Medicine Hat to Penticton and this one is worth the stay and the money. My kids had a great time at the pool, our room was awesome, the beds were comfy and the small deli style restaurant in the hotel provides a great cup of coffee and offers healthy breakfasts. I would recommend this hotel to anyone and we will definitely stay there again.
