Jurassic Inn by Canalta Hotels
Ranked #5 of 9 Hotels in Drumheller
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 3, 2013

A blend of hotel and motel. Have stayed twice (once as a hotel room and the other with the 2nd door attached like a motel that also had a kitchenette). Comfortable beds, pillows, and towels. Loved the makeup remover cloths they give you so you don't stain the towels. The popcorn machine in the lobby always hits the spot when you need a snack. And the breakfast spread is delicious. Will continue to look for Canalta hotels when booking trips! No pool though, only a large hot tub.

We stayed at the Jurassic Inn! It came with tickets for the Royal Tyrrell Museum as part of a promotional package. It's pretty basic with no cooking facilities in our unit but it is clean, tidy and quiet. We did not have time to see what other amenities the hotel has but its location is good, just to the left upon entering Drumheller from Calgary and a short drive away from the Tyrell. Breakfast was included in our package and there were ample choices. There were no fresh fruit, however. But we sneaked in some bananas and no one seem to mind.

Probably the best place in drum heller for the buck. Exterior is set up like a motel. You can park in front of your room. Great for work related trips. The rooms are well updated with a fridge mic. Kitchenette and interior looks like a motel with a very nice breakfast. Even a gym comes with the price. Also superstore is across the street so you can cook your own meals.

We took a hockey team to Drumheller this past weekend and stayed at the Jurassic Inn. We had a fantastic experience. The staff were very friendly and accomodating. The hotel provided each of our players a welcome package consisting of a sports drink, touque, candy and chips. There was complimentary popcorn, cookies and lemon water provided in the lobby. The rooms and common areas were well maintained and clean. It appeared that the property was recently updated. The breakfast was typical but well presented and the area was well maintained. I can't point out a negative aspect of our stay. We highly recommend the Jurassic!

We drove all night to get to Alberta on a family holiday. We ended up sleeping for a few hours in the hotel next door's parking lot. At 9 am I went to the Canalta to see if they had rooms, not only did they have rooms, they got us and our son into a room early. We got to have breakfast, time in the pool and a great night's sleep that night, and more pool time and breakfast the next day. What a great hotel, close to BP's for supper and of course to the Tyrrell!

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms will have an outside door - great for moving things in and heading out to see the...

My family and I recently re-located from Ontario to Alberta. We stayed at the Canalta Jurassic Inn in Drumheller, AB for a week with our 19 month old daughter and our 100lb Rottie. We had a lovely room, complete with a kitchenette - after four days on the road, it was wonderful to be able to make our own meals rather than eat out every night.
There are laundry facilities on site, and an outstanding housekeeping staff - especially Charlie - she loved our big doggie (he was spoiled with treats any chance they got)!!
The GM Michelle, and Chantal at the front desk were so welcoming, friendly and professional.
We never really had time to check out the pool/hot tub/exercise room, but they are there.
Thanks so much for such a wonderful stay during a bit of a stressful point in our family's life :)

The hotel was very clean, I was very impressed by the spotless white bathroom! They gave ample towels, glasses and coffeemaker, fridge, microwave, and even laundry bags and great pillows. It was a very comfortable stay, and the front desk staff were very friendly. The continental breakfast was really nice, complete with hard-boiled eggs, frenchtoast, pancakes, toast, cereal, yoghurt, fruit, pastry and juice/coffee, with a little lunchroom with a TV in it. They also had snacks for free during the day/evening, with popcorn and cake.

My only complaints would be that the AC did not work overly well, only cooled the room slightly, and it's a fairly pricey place for a small town, but it was worth it for how nice it was!

Room Tip: Be warned, they do not have an elevator, so if you have trouble with stairs, ask for a main floor ro...
