We asked for a non smoking room, the room stunk of smoke and I don't what! The bed (mattress) was old and as hard as the floor, the floor would have been more comfortable to sleep on. It gave me severe back, hip and leg pain. The furniture and lighting was extremely dated, the TV was an old tube, but... More

SM386, Manager at Hoo-Doo Motel, responded to this review

I will respond to this review, but I do not know if trip Advisor will allow the response. All the rooms are absolutely non smoking (sign is posted outside stating you must smoke 5 meters from building) and we decided to give you a very nice, clean room, with a king size bed.We personally checked for any smoke smell and...

Every time we stay in Drumheller, we stay at the Hoo-Doo Motel. The hotel staff are always friendly, welcoming, and helpful - particularly a gentleman named Sheldon. We've stayed at this hotel for almost 20 years now and he has always made us feel welcome - like we're a member of his family. This is why our family chooses to... More

There are lots of hotels in drumheller. Picked Hoodoo motel, as it had enough parking for our truck and trailer. We felt comfortable leaving vehicle overnight. The motel was very clean as a whistle and quiet. It was nice to have a ground floor room.

We enjoyed our stay and the owner was very helpful and accommodating as one of us required Medical Treatment and needed the local Hospital. The motel was close to all the site which we wanted to see and to do. Good food close by as well.

Stayed 2 nights to see Tyrrell museum and hiked in horse thief canyon all day and found some interesting fossils. The motel had excellent linens and towels and spotless. We had a great, quiet sleep. The staff was friendly and courteous. Also, the price was excellent, compared to other hotels.

Not worth the money. We stayed there only because it was the only place available. The beds were broken...at least 20 years old! Barely slept because they were so uncomfortable. I asked for a manager to deal with the problem, since $150 to pay for a lousy sleep seemed ridiculous. They never dealt with it and basically said 'too bad'.... More

This motel is very dated. 70's style carpet, tiles and furniture but holy smokes it really is clean! We stopped in for the night on our way through the town. The price was right. We got a room where the heat wasn't working but the guy at the front desk was more than helpful changing our room immediately. Very good... More
