“This property is massive”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013

It would be unfair to start this review without commenting on the shear size of this property! It is vast! As if to draw attention to how large it is, this Best Western does not simply have one pool that is surrounded by rooms but, they have TWO. As I was driving around to my room on the backside, I was reminiscing about how many of the different wings that I have stayed in over the years. Some are newer and perhaps some of the older rooms may be showing age. I stayed in a very well appointed room that was more than comfortable. The bathroom is primarily marble and the shower itself was so perfect that I found myself taking just a bit longer than I do normally. Okay, noise from the hallway can sometimes reverberate with the excited sounds of children but as an old traveller, I find this more comforting than problematic. This is not the cheapest motel property in "The Hat" but I believe it is worth the slight extra, if comfort is one of your motivating factors. It is easy to find whether approaching from the Trans Canada (Highway #1 from Calgary) or, the Crows Nest (Highway #3 from Lethbridge). The breakfast area is large and there is an attendant behind the bar area, just to make sure that everything is perfect.

Room Tip: If travelling with children, ask for a room that has direct access to one of the two indoor pools.

The staff at this hotel are always friendly and do their utmost to make your stay the best it can be. We travel through Medicine Hat a lot, and always stay at this hotel due to the friendly and welcoming environment.

This place was booked at the last minute by a company I was working for, we were amazed to get rooms at the last second, especially during Stampede time in Medicine Hat. The rooms were very comfortable, although the rooms we had were noticeably aged. Still wondering why in the world the bathroom and the sink are in 2 separate places. The beds were super comfy and the room was clean and fresh upon arrival. Where my room was it was super quiet. The breakfast bar in the mornings was all right, although the selection each morning while I was there didn't change a whole lot. The staff were super friendly and I felt right at home here. One staff member by the name of Gordon who works the breakfast bar was absolutely amazing, he was cheerful and was always ready to chat with every guest that came through the doors in the morning. If you are staying here, be prepared to be welcomed by his friendly and cheerful face in the morning. The hotel has 2 pools and 2 hot tubs, which are fairly large in size, although the pool by our room was under renovation during my stay.The only downside I noticed was that if you are staying in town for the Stampede, it's quite a distance away from there. I was working on the grounds for 3 days and it took a good 15 minutes to get to the grounds, which really adds up over time. Overall, I would definitely stay here again, not too often you find a great place with super friendly staff like the one's I had here.

Room Tip: Rooms on the south side are farther away from the TransCanada Highway and therefore are quieter. Roo...

We stayed at this hotel as a family of 5 for 1 night, as a stopover on our way home. We stayed in a room with 2 queen beds. The hotel is old and needs updating. The rooms are fine but space is tight with the furniture in there. The bath/toilet area is tiny and has just enough space to stand. The doorways are small and I'm sure, after having built 2 houses, not up to current code. The beds and bedding are comfortable. It was nice to have a complimentary breakfast. The man "manning" it was very friendly and attentive, as were the reception staff. There are 2 pools and 2 hot tubs, 1 of each at each end of the hotel. One set was closed for work. We didn't use the pool that was open as it was late by the time we arrived. We would likely not stay here again.

Ant infestation, ( the biting kind), extremely noisy bathroom exhaust fan, alarm clock 1 hour behind with no way to adjust, no maid service on day #2, smell of marijuana in parking lot during first and second nights, internet service sucked, 3 nights cost more than 7 nights in Vegas at a 5 star hotel.

Best value for the price.Always Clean ,fresh. I have stayed at least 8 different times at this place. I am not thinking of another place. Plus the more you stay the more discount you get. It turns out to be a very good deal. If go on a vacation iam staying at this place for sure.

We booked a romatic package with some perks in the room and a restaurant voucher. The room just above the pool was very nice - large and functional with two soft comfy chairs, a huge bed, working desk and a jacizzi. The room was preparred as described in the package and the staff was very friendly.
(Be aware that the restaurant advertised as a steakhouse nearby has theme nights with special menus - thisis not the hotel's fault, but if you book the restaurat voucher and you are hoping for a steak, you might ending your day with Greek food or domething equally 'problematic'.)
The only problem was the lack of hot water. Staff did what they could and hot water returned within the hour.
