The Blackfoot Inn had graciously offered to host a bar-b-q for our wine club. My husband and I had decided that we'd spend the night in the Inn rather than drive home. We found the staff to be very courteous. Check in and check out were a breeze. Our king-size deluxe room was comfortable and clean and was conveniently located on the ground floor. We were at the extreme end of the hall so hallway traffic/noise was not a factor in our stay.
The Bar-b-q was in the pool area and closed to other guests for our private function. The food was amazing! The waiting staff and chefs were very professional and prompt with their service. Special KUDOS go to chef Jason Pederson. There was a set menu for our bar-b-q but it didn't include dessert. Our table of four asked Jason if he could prepare us a little 'something sweet' for dessert and he came up with a perfect little creme caramel dessert. It was a perfect ending to a perfect evening. Plus, there was no extra charge for that 'extra' to our meal. Thank you, again, Jason! The next morning we had the buffet breakfast and while it was good, it was also a tad expensive, ($50 tab for two).
All in all it was a nice stay. Would we stay again? Possibly. Is it good value for the money? Only if you got a deal. We didn't get a room deal, but we've stayed in enough hotels/inns to know that the price they asked for the room is pretty much standard, and I think we can all agree that the standard room prices in Alberta are a bit high anyway. I guess the biggest impression for my husband and me was not the room or the 'trimmings' of the hotel but the staff. We both demand good, courteous service and the night we stayed at the Blackfoot Inn, we got that.
