Simply horrible. The front desk staff and house keepers are extremely nosy. The patrons of the motel, while I was there, were loud and rowdy. The weekends are terrible if you are looking for quiet time. It was the worst 10 days I have ever stayed at a hotel.

We booked online for the Travelodge. Even the print out confirming our reservation said Travelodge but also mentioned the Saskatoon Thriftlodge. We showed up at 10 pm after a long long day only to be told we were NOT at the Travelodge but some hole down the street.
There were poop stains on the sheets (replacement sheets I had to put on were full of holes), previously dirty hand marks on the towels, dirty carpet and the hooker that had to be attended to by the EMTs in the parking lot was the topper. They already had a our money for the next night too as we hadn't given 24 hours notice.
While the staff were very nice and helpful, the experience is one I will never forget. I am telling everyone that would normally stay at the Travelodge of the shady little redirect we had; I will never book at the Travelodge again.

I reserved a room with a queen-sized bed more than 2 months ago. Upon arrival I was given a room with two small double beds. The clerk refused to adjust the price. The caulk around the tub was nasty looking (see photo). The rug was soiled with dirt & grime. Of the 13 hotels that I have patronized in the past month, I would rate this one to be the worst. The clerk tried to charge an extra fee for my dog. No such fee was listed anywhere on the pet-friendly hotel website when I made the reservation.

Advertised as completely renovated but still reeked of smoke and looked very shopworn. Parking lot small & congested, filled with oversize trucks and rigs. Continental breakfast was good & staff pleasant.
