I was initially apprehensive about booking this motel because the nightly rate was so low, but I was pleasantly surprised when we checked in. For half the price of similar motels, this motel had adjoining room with two queen beds, clean shower, stove, microwave, and a mini fridge. The motel is close to the highway for a quick exit in...

The room was clean but it's showing its age, on the plus side the bed was comfortable, the bathroom was clean, the room was quite and the A/C worked. There was also a small microwave, refrigerator and a cooktop. So over all, not bad for a one night stay

We were met by a friendly staff member in the office. We stayed in a comfortable room that was clean and renovated. The bed was very comfortable. We enjoyed our stay at this hotel at a very reasonable price. Thanks for a great night.

This is a motel so don't expect anything more. With that said, they offer a small complimentary breakfast and for the total price, this is a very good value if you are needed to stay in this area (we were visiting Dinosaur Provincial Park).

I have stayed here twice. It is in a nice and quiet location from brooks to dinosaur park trip. Reception was very friendly and accommodating. The room was very clean, comfortable and with some of amenities e.g small fridge/microwave/coffee machine the breakfast was not bad, but washroom was a bit small. the hotel is much more affordable than others in...

Stayed here for one night. Can't beat the price. The room was very clean and the heater worked very well. Reception was very nice and friendly. The wifi works well. Would stay here again. Check out The Mango Tree right down the street for amazing Indian food.

Original review was deleted. Hmmm. Experience is similar to "Just Bad". Cigarette burns in the carpet and bed covers, hole kicked in the bathroom door, heavy cigarette smell, caulking around the bathtub done by a 5 yr old. Couldn't wait until the next morning to leave.

We are frequent travelers. In 50+ years of travelling, I don't think we have ever experienced better value. We stayed in a 2-bedroom unit with a kitchenette.

Unfortunately I believe the good reviews must have been written by friends or family of the owners because no one in their right mind should stay here. Don't think you take your pet here because it is noted that no pets are allowed. I had the pleasure of staying in room 120. There were dried liquids on the walls and... More
