“Wonderful accommodations!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2012

Our first night in Drumheller was spent in Drumheller Inn - which was totally unacceptable. Sadly we had not called ahead to make reservations. The next morning we checked with Michelle at Jurassic Inn and she was able to book us for two nights. They had our room ready within an hour. We were treated like royalty. Breakfast was still being served and we were invited to partake. My grandson, Matthew, was thrilled with the popcorn and cookies offered each day in the lobby. We were made to feel most welcome. The steam room and jacuzzi tub were beautiful. The hotel was very well kept and clean. Breakfast was unbelievable. Would definitely return. Thank you!

Stayed here for 3 nights, mainly to meet up with family who were staying elsewhere. We both loved the hotel, the ever cheerful staff on reception. Room was very large, with simple cooking facilities, sofa and large bed. Hot popcorn (free) available in the small foyer along with coffee and brownies. Found room clean and tidy. Breakfast was good with usual continental choice available. Chantal was very friendly and helpful. Small hot tub and gym on site. Located about 12miles from Tyrel Dinosaur Museum and very short drive into town. if passing through again definite make a return visit. Thank you

Room Tip: Ground floor has oth hotel door and door leading to car park, great for unloading luggage.

We stayed two nights and were quite happy. Rooms were spacious, clean and modern. There was a nice hot tub (no pool), breakfast was fantastic, staff were courteous and helpful. I feel it was overpriced, however, certainly no more than anywhere else in Drumheller.

We made a quick overnight trip to Drumheller and were travelling with a dog who couldn't be left in a kennel because of recent surgery. I chose this hotel because of someone else's review on Tripadvisor saying that this is a pet-friendly hotel. I called to make the reservation on the phone, rather than online, just to confirm this point. Chantal was great about discussing the dog (there is a pet fee) and made our reservation. When you check in with a pet, they even give you a package with a big dog cookie and some poop bags.
Driving right up to the door did feel a little motel-y but that was not a problem for us. The inside of the room was nice, kitchenette included, lots of towels in the bathroom. If you do want groceries to prepare in the kitchenette, there is an Extra Foods right across the street, but a much nicer IGA a little further into town.
They are still displaying the notice about the possibility of some kind of beetle in the room, requesting that guests don't put food or wet towels on the floors. We didn't see any evidence of insect life (except a few mosquitoes that we let in).
The door directly to outdoors was, of course, a plus when travelling with a dog, and we spent a comfortable night. We didn't use any of the other facilities in the hotel, so I can't comment on them.

Nice clean room, kitchenette was handy. Love the free popcorn and goodies in the lobby.
Continental breakfast had good selection and tasted great. Whirlpool was clean and nice and hot. The wife appreciated the makeup removal towels that were provided. Service was friendly.

I just got back from staying at the Jurassic Canalta Hotel in Drumheller overnight. We had a package, including 2 tickets to the Rosebud theatre, 25 min. away from there, 2 tickets for an excellent buffet in Rosebud, 1 night overnight, and we got a great kingsize bed. The staff are so generous and friendly! The hotel is very clean, and bright, and they offer free popcorn, homemade cookies and an excellent breakfast included! I was impressed and hope to stay there again sometime.

Room Tip: Ask for a kingsize room, you might get it with this package, orginally advertised in Travel Alberta...
