This hotel was just what we needed after a long day of travel. They were accommodating, friendly, and very helpful. The breakfast was extensive and the rooms clean. The price was a great value. I'd recommend this hotel.

I was pretty tired from driving 10 hours and when I saw the motel sign, I was so happy. The gentleman that waited on me was very knowledgeble. He gave me great rates and because I was on my own he took me a shortcut to my room. It was actually a 2 bedroom room and I thought it might be noisy but it wasn't. Complimentory breakfast was better than some high end hotels. I will definetley stay there again.

Room Tip: Just ask what you want and this fellow will bend over backward for you.

A friendly greeting at 01:30am, followed by a friendly chat over breakfast. Room as good as hoped. Clean and comfortable. Breakfast included a huge selection of fruit, coffee, cereal.....

Happy with stay and miles better then the over-priced hostels of Banff area.

Recommended.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2010

This was one of two independent places we stayed on our recent roadttrip to Lethbridge. We weren't planning on stopping this close to our destination, but car trouble forced us to find someplace that looked inexpensive as we didn't want to unnecessarily add to our costs. Were we pleasantly surprised with this place. The price was reasonable enough as it was, but the "continental breakfast" gave new meaning to the term as there was much more on offer than croissants. We don't think we'll ever have occassion to stay in Claresholm, but if we ever do, this place is now on our radar.
