This is a motel, not an inn. It was clean and comfortable and fine for a good nights rest.On nice little touch was the provision of cleaning rags provided to clean your shoes after walking in from the sidewalk in bad weather One thing needing attention was he shower head, the general water pressure was fine but at the shower...

Booked here for a night to hide from the rain while on our bike trip. The clerk was really friendly and the room was decent. As others have stated it doesn't look like much from the outside but it was a decent stay for the cost. Free wifi and a big tv. A $10 cab ride to town as it... More

Much better motel than expected for the outside view. Nice big and clean rooms, friendly staff and a good breakfast. Would happily stay here again if travelling through Claresholm in the future Free and quite fast wifi as well

Not much to look at from the outside but neat enough inside. Rooms are comfortable with decent beds and table and chairs. Big size TV. Quiet. Breakfast from 7-9 am is minimal--bacon and scrambled eggs, some breads and bagels, yogurt Try Roy's for dinner just down the road.

Spent over a week in Alberta and this hotel was by far the best value. 85CAD and it included a hot breakfast. Room was large and had micro, fridge, ironing board, and coffee maker. Work area and a separate table with chairs. Largest flat screen TV I have ever seen in a hotel. Fast free wifi. Laundromat on premises.Large shower/tub... More

Excellent value. We had a decent, simple, clean room for a very reasonable price with a good hot breakfast as well. It's an older facility recently taken over by a hardworking and personable family. Although it's obviously not a high end hotel, the overall value compares very favorably with many of the major motel chains. We stayed here summer 2015.... More

I agree with the previous review -- comfortable bed and quiet room. Unfortunately, the room, hallway, and breakfast room were in need of a good air out and a scrub. With a little more tlc, this motel could be quite charming. Very friendly staff.

The weed-choked grounds should have been our first clue that maintenance was not a priority of management. The entrance and hallways had not been vacuumed in some time although the room seemed reasonably clean. There was a large screen TV and good internet. The bed was comfortable and it was quiet. However, arriving for breakfast, we discovered surfaces and appliances... More

Lovely front desk and housekeeping service! We got to breakfast just before it ended and still got real eggs, bacon and toast!! Coffee too! The bed's were comfortable, and it felt so homey being able to park right outside our door! Thank you, BEST Seven! 😁

Was called by hotel and was told room was unavailable. Online the Best Seven advertised free breakfast and dinner...once there we were told the restaurant was closed permanently. The establishment/staff blamed Booking.com for the Internet pictures of free meals! Also advertised were numerous cable and music channels, turned out there was only basic tv and no music.
