I looked around town for a motel that was conveniently located in the centre of town and there are two or three, where you could easily walk along the main street, but they looked so old and scruffy that I decided to jump onto my iphone and find a free wireless connection and check out TripAdvisor. I don't like taking too many chances for a single overnight stay so Columbine looked good from the reviews.
For $60 I had a very reasonable room with good heating, and it was -25C outside. Large older style TV and continental breakfast in the dining room. I was happy with the room and when travelling alone I look for no-nonsense clean and cheap places. I'll be the first to can a place if it is unclean or the staff are horrible.
The rooms are inside the building, so consider whether you want to lug bags inside and down a corridor. Didn't bother me but I do like parking directly outside my room.
Front door locks around 10pm and a rear door is accessible by your room key.
Single staff member on duty up til 10ish.
Motel is located on the edge of town and a bit of a walk to town in the cold but summer would probably be a pleasant walk. But not at 25C below.
