Admittedly, I was expecting this hotel to be worse than it turned out to be. The outside of the hotel doesn't inspire much confidence and a facelift is absolutely in order. The parking is accessible from 3 streets though and there is ample parking so that is a bonus. The front desk staff were friendly and helpful and our room attendant (Amber) was also friendly and very accommodating. We were travelling with a dog so I was expecting to have the dirtiest room (I've heard horror stories about pet rooms). Instead, the room was surprisingly pleasant. Not exactly what I'd call spacious but it suited our needs. The bathroom was clean (very important to me), the water pressure in the shower was good and there was plenty of hot water. The beds were comfortable but they were double beds so tall people might have some issues(!). This property is very well situated in the west end; less than a 5 minute drive to the West Edmonton Mall and just a few blocks to restaurants and lots of other shopping. The onsite Smitty's restaurant is probably one of the better Smitty's that I have been to. The food was good and the server was funny and attentive. The downsides: The water park in the hotel. The pool isn't big or deep and the slide was closed when my daughter went. We didn't try the hot tub. There is a small courtyard between the two wings of the hotel. Unfortunately, irresponsible pet owners have not picked up after their pooches even though there is a "clean up after your pet" clause that has to be signed at check-in when you are staying with a pet AND the front desk offers poop bags for free. Now that the snow has melted, there are poo bombs everywhere and the staff really need to be on top of cleaning that up. The door to the back parking lot doesn't close securely unless it is slammed - and of course no one ever seems to bother to close it behind them so there is a security issue there that needs to be addressed. In all, this is a decent budget hotel. If you are coming to Edmonton with the intention of NOT spending a lot of time at the hotel, then I recommend it. I wouldn't honeymoon there though!
