“Great Place to Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

We went to Wetaskiwin on Mar 29th and stayed 1 night. Checkin was quick, rooms were very clean and had every thing a traveller needed.Barneys was great for supper and the next morning we had breakfast at o'brians. Everything was great, we definitely will stay there again.

After many years of saying we should visit the Reynolds Museum in Wetaskiwin we finally made the trip. We thought we would have a leisurely drive up to Edmonton - do a little shopping -- and then spend the night in Wetaskiwin. In one of the Travel Alberta magazines there was an ad for the Best Western Wayside Inn --- a complete package for a 1 night stay, museum passes for 2 and breakfast for 2 the next morning. I called to book - asking for a King bed and was told I had to pay $20 more. This is not a large amount -- but does leave a bad taste - when the ad did not specify any particular bed size.

Beyond that one small annoyance we enjoyed our stay very much. I had asked for a quiet room - and was given one. Our check in was very nice -- friendly and helpful. We decided to eat dinner in Barney's Pub & Grill - and had an excellent experience. There is a separate review on dinner.

The room was pretty small -- but very nicely renovated. The carpets were clean and soft -- the bed was very comfortable - as were the pillows. I agree that it is very hard to control the room temperature -- as the numbers on the thermostat are minute - but overall we were fairly comfortable throughout the night.

For breakfast we went to the other restaurant on site -- O'Brian's. The service was good and the food excellent. If we are in Wetaskiwin again next summer - we will definitely stay at the Best Western Wayside!

Thank-you for choosing to stay at the Best Western Wayside Inn during your recent visit to Wetaskiwin. Thank-you also for submitting a review of your experience with us. My apoligies for any confusion our package created in regard to rate. We are typically a little higher for a king room for all of our packages, but perhaps we could do a little better job to clarify that in our advertizing.
I appreciate your kind feedback in regards to our two dining outlets, Barney's Pub & Grill and O'Brian's. Our staff work very hard to create a great experience for each of our guests at both venues.
I am happy to hear that you enjoyed your visit to the Reynolds Alberta Museum and your stay at the hotel. RAM holds different events through out the year, so every visit offers something new to see or experience. Thank-you again for the feed back and we look forward to seeing you on your next visit to Wetaskiwin.

Stopped over on a whim while our way to Kananaskis Country, glad we did!
Check in was great , the bed and room were small but very clean.
In the AM we had breakfast at thier restaurant, service was great and the breakfast was great value for your money. Check out was a different story, we waited for the clerk to finish an extended personal phone call before she would assist us. What ever happened to muti-tasking?
This was the only issue with our stay.

This is a very good hotel for business travel. The rooms are small, but modern and well designed. Service is friendly and personal - the staff went out of their way to make our week-long stay comfortable, to provide everything we needed for our meetings, etc. And after long workdays, it's great to have a restaurant and bar onsite, especially since pretty much every place in downtown Wetaskiwin closes at 8 p.m.

Why four stars and not five? Breakfast is served from 6:30 and service is very friendly, but there aren't many light and healthy options on the menu, and everything happens at a very... leisurely pace. Beds are relatively new, but not super comfortable. And... did I mention the rooms are small? Fine for one person; a bit cramped for two or more.

Breakfast restaurant has fresh ground coffee - beans are ground for each coffee pot - a very nice touch. Good food too although no complimentary breakfast.
Pub/restaurant has great food, excellent staff - they even went out a purchased a crib board when asked if they had one. Now THAT'S service.
Nicely appointed rooms, very friendly staff.
A little pricey at regular rate but overall a very pleasant stay.

I booked 2 rooms, one with a king bed and one for my sister in law a queen room. We booked through Bestwesten.com and got a decent rate. Both rooms were fine. The biggest complaint was how the heating system works. It was cold when we ented the room as the AC was on, we looked at the thermostat, the figures were so small we could figureout how to turn it ip and just adjusted by guessing, we went for dinner and got back and the room was very hot and we could not turn down the temperature. TRhe toilet anbd shower and show are in a adjoining room and the sink was in the main room, strange as it seemed. The king bed had 6 pillows and that was great, the TV was great, it shalso had digitial channels as well.

This property was very old as we could look out into the coutyrad and there was a old patio. Check in was okay and quick. Clerk was very friendly. Would have been nice t have a pool or something for the cost we paid. Restuarant was open at 630 and the food was okay there there and price was decent too.

Guest computer was a laptop stuck outin the middle of the hall and close the lounge, not good for doing anything.
