Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 27, 2013

Stayed one night on business. I am a frequent guest at this chain and have a good baseline for what is to be expected from this hotel.

Hotel was booked solid but the staff were up to the task. Excellent service at the front desk. I didn't require housekeeping but found the room clean and in order upon my arrival. The building is old and I remember staying at the same hotel under a different brand about ten years ago. Having said that it's in good shape, clean and modern looking.

The hotel is central to many amenities, including the Bower Place mall. There is no restaurant but there is a free continental breakfast (standard microwave eggs, pastries, juice and coffee).

Although I didn't use it, there is a pool that appears to be quite family friendly.

I will be staying here again and recommend it for families and business.

Just a stone's throw away from the Bower Mall, this is an ideal hotel to stay especially coming from out of town. My stay in the hotel quite pleasant. The staff are very courteous and approachable. The room was nice and tidy. The best part of my stay in this hotel was that I was able to sleep well because of its comfy bed and pillows. I would definitely recommend this hotel to my colleagues.

After a long day of travel, I was warmly greeted by the front desk team who eagerly helped me get checked in. My room was very nice and large with a mini fridge and microwave. What I loved most about this hotel was the hot tub which was hot and the awesome pool and sauna. Wednesday's Manager Reception with drinks and appetizers was a great way to wrap up my day. Rooms were very clean. Included breakfast was nice as well.

Shirin and staff were first rate, from booking in our team, to check-in and throughout our stay. The staff were very friendly an helpful and they even allowed us to make a team lunch in the breakfast area before heading out to our next game. Very accommodating and I would recommend this hotel to any group looking for a place to stay in Red Deer.

Stayed here overnight on company paid business trip. Easy to find, good parking, big room, comfy beds, and clean. The typical "inclusive" breakfast was about what you might expect but was good enough for an early start. Would likely stay again.

I have stayed at this hotel numerous times while in Red Deer on business. This last trip I noticed that the room I was in was a little "shabby" and that the hotel might be getting a little run down. The AC was blasting like a freight train when I entered the room and I had to turn the heat completely off to make it through the night (still too warm in the room) I also had to unplug the fridge because of the buzzing noise coming from it. The doors to the rooms slam shut so very early in the AM you are jarred awake by those sounds. The room was clean and the TV although very small was all functioning. The beds are OK, Towels are like sandpaper - which is common these days for some reason.

You are close to the mall for shopping and places to eat so that alone makes it a good place to stay if you are on a budget since a simple breakfast is included.

Room Tip: The place is LONG so ask for a room bear the front of the hotel or you may have to hike for a while...

This is a great stay option when staying in and around Red Deer. I specialize in group bookings and I have always had a good experience working with the hotel. The staff are always friendly, helpful and willing to go that extra mile to ensure that the experience with the hotel is a positive one (special mention to the current GM who has always been great to work with). Overall, the service provided by this hotel is fantastic. The hotel is centrally located, thus providing a convenient option for travellers and the amenities are great. I would certainly recommend this hotel to both my clients, as well as friends and family!
