“Helpful staff - an excellent motel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

We spent 3 nights here in a 2 bedded suite - it was immaculate and the staff could not have been more helpful. Although an old motel the cleanliness of the unit was wonderful. Prices were excellent. Fort Macleod is an interesting little town to visit

Room Tip: Be sure to visit the Fort - an interesting time

Travelling "salesman" who gets put up in motels all over Southern Alberta. Yeah, the place is older and the rooms show wear and tear, but what would you expect of an older place. The wi-fi is excellent, love the coffee maker and fridge and microwave in room. Big surprise were the dishes, hot plate, toaster. The beds are very comfy, the staff has been quite accomodating and friendly. I am still here until Sunday but have no complaints really. Could nitpick a bit: The hot water could last a touch longer but it holds out long enough (love hot, long showers). With the room I am in, separate bedroom and bed in the main room, the main room bed would be better as a daybed to give the feeling of more space. Next time I'm stuck in Fort MacLeod, I'll want to stay here again....Worth every penny and more.

This motel is old and needs losts of work. Very poor A/C. Beds are old, Wireless is not really wireless need a cable from the office. This was just not a good experience. I would not recommend this place to anyone

We provided the guest an ethernet cable to use ADSL because we wanted the guest to have internet access since the guest was experiencing problems connecting using Wi Fi. We also consulted the other guests to find out if they were also experiencing Wi Fi connection problems, and they informed us that their connection was working. The guest also forgot to mention that we reimbursed him the full nights rate after he told us that he had experienced problems with the A/C.

Fort Macleod is a historical town with many historical buildings which is also part of our motel history.

This is a simple motel but it had all the facilities we needed. We had a king size suite which had some kitchen equipment though the room was only just big enough to use it. We had a baby in a cot in the room as well which wasn't ideal since it was hard not to wake him up when we used the bathroom after he'd gone to bed.

We got a king room with a kitchenette for $69 (incl taxes), I think is great value (mind you we only asked for a double). Bed was great, not soft & worn. Room was very clean, a little worn but better than I was expecting. Will use them again when back in area. Only downside, free internet but not wireless, oh well life has its hardships.

Very spacious and comfortable king sized beds and large rooms. I was really happy to have the dog allowed in the room. Reception was very friendly.
