“Clean, Comfy and a Great Price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

Save your money and stay at the Satellite. Our room was very clean, albeit a little dated, but the owner has obviously begun spending money on updating things like the bathroom and windows. Our room had 2 very comfortable queen beds, a bar fridge, microwave and free internet. The weather was lovely so we were able to sit in very comfortable garden chairs and enjoy the late afternoon sunshine. The owners were lovely people, asking if we were satisfied with our accommodations when I went to the office to get ice, and the day we left, one of the owners came to the car after my husband returned the keys and asked me if I had enjoyed my stay. We will definitely stay there again on our way back home. It must be a popular place as it was almost full by supper time. Great place!

The satellite motel is a hidden gem for bargain hunters looking for a place to sleep. The owner is super friendly and the rooms were old but super clean and in great condition. I paid $55 for one night vs 110 at other hotels in the hat. Great motel highly recommend if your passing through and looking for a nice inexpensive place to rest.

We arrived in Medicine Hat late on a return trip home from the U.S. We checked Expedia and couldn't find anything for less than 109.00/night -they call it the "Alberta boom". Expedia doesn't list every property so we took a chance and checked it out. Clean, well kept, comfortable beds, affordable (we paid 55.00/night) nothing fancy. The owner/manager is what sets this place apart from the rest. This will become a regular stop each spring for these Snowbirds!

It is a no frills motel. The owner is pleasant and helpful. The place is clean. Good selection of channels on the television. This is an older establishment and probably does need some updating. The nightly rate is very reasonable.

The Satellite Motel is a great bargain if all you need is a place to sleep. We were passing through Medicine Hat from Saskatchewan to BC and we were perfect content with our room. It was fine for kids, super clean & had a working TV, fridge and good heat/AC. The beds are good enough. ANNND it was $100 cheaper that the Days Inn we stayed in coming the other way. We're not big on people soup pools anyway. Continental breakfast is included but it's...not good. Maybe best to skip it? Oh, and the owner is super friendly and helpful. Save your $ and crash at the Satellite!

Bad timing to be passing through when the Stampeed was on - all the big hotels were full. We ended up at the Satellite for one night for $65. The room was very clean, beds comfortable, air conditioning worked and the continental breakfast was included. That was all we needed!

Here for business and only paid $50 plus tax on a weekday night. There is a lot of competition and motels in Medicine Hat so prices are low.
It's quiet too.
You get a microwave and refrigerator.
The bed was a little too firm for my taste.
