I booked my room months ago for Stampede July 3-12th, 2015 at a rate of $125.99 for a specific room. Yesterday I got an email saying because it's during Stampede they will not be honouring my reservation and they can rebook me at the rate of $259.99 for my room. It doesn't matter that I have booked it with a...

Fairly decent room for the price. Stayed two nights with the usual late night party noise outside the room next door. Not-accessible friendly, i.e. no grab bars in washrooms, breakfast room upstairs, third floor, no elevator. decent wi-fi, and pool. Pet friendly - ground floor rooms with exterior access.

The staff were very accommodating and allowed for early check-in if I was willing to switch my room preference, which I didn't mind doing, and they were very kind about making sure I had everything I needed and were also willing and able to get me a room inside the hotel on the first floor so I didn't have to...

I have stayed here many times! It is very close to chinook mall, and not too far to ikea and the big box stores. The staff is very friendly and the rooms are clean and it even comes with a continental breakfast. . I stayed here with my mom when my youngest was only a couple months old and we...

The first time we stayed at this property, we were very pleased. The room was clean and had had some updates done to it. We were in the main part of the building, close to the front desk. The second time we stayed, we were in one of the rooms with an outside door. The updates were not done as...

We were given the last room available which may have been the problem. The room was in need of a lot of work. Dirty and stained. Bed was clean. Mouldy fruit in the breakfast room. Very disappointed especially after seeing other guests reviews and pictures. Would not stay again.

As my title indicates, I have stayed at this hotel once before (reviewed June 29, 2014). This time around (April 15th – 16th) I was still relatively pleased with my stay, although, the lacks of tongs for the included breakfast still seem to be a problem (as pointed out in my previous review). Two tongs are not sufficient when there...

To be honest, I booked this hotel just for the price. I was on a longer stay so wanted to keep the costs low. But the hotel was surprisingly good. It is professionally maintained and clean. Took a room with the kitchenette and it was very convenient. Beds are well made and linens are clean. The hotel is far from...

My wife and I stayed here for two nights and found it to be quiet and comfortable. A good value for the cost. The only complaint was that the housekeeping staff should be taught how to use a dust cloth. I dusted the lamps and bed headboards myself. The shower head in the bathroom of room number 114 is badly...

I am glad to hear you had a quiet stay. We are always happy to receive feedback from our guests! We take room cleanliness seriously, so as per your review, we have upgraded the dusting methods our housekeepers use so we can eliminate as much dust as possible. We have also looked at the showerhead from the room and changed...
