It is a budget hotel in a motel layout. That should set your expectations. It was reasonably priced for the category of hotel this is. My expectations were not high, that said I was impressed. The rooms had up to date furniture. The breakfast was reasonable. Lots of parking. I was here for three nights, the last night there was... More

Let me just say that I picked this for 2 reasons: 1) Wyndham hotel & 2) price. The reason I say price is because it wasn't the cheapest but it was reasonably priced for the location to the airport and I was arriving late for a very early departure. My stay at this facility lasted all of about 6 1/2... More

We stayed here just for one night in October and it was exactly what we were looking for. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. The room was clean, though there were no towels (got some after talking to front desk clerk). This hotel has half smoking, half non-smoking rooms. So really, it is a smokers paradise. If you are...

We've got a excellent stay in this hotel.I didn't expect this stay will be like it's price. With the price we paid here, I don't think we can have this kind of accommodation anywhere else. Will stay again in the future. Strongly recommend it.

I travel for work 80% of my week. It's refreshing to walk into a hotel, have them greet you by name, and treat you like a number one customer, even though you may not be. I am always greeted with a smile, and given the best rate possible even during peak times. Beds are super comfy and I don't find... More

A noisy place that seems to draw sketchy characters, partiers and work crews. We paid close to $100 for the night, which is on the high end for a "budget" motel. It's close to the railway, the highway and sound seems to come through from every direction. Bad value for the money.

Hi David R, Sorry to hear our property wasn't what you were looking for. I would disagree with you on a few of these comments. People like our location as we are close to the airport, close to downtown, and have lots of Restaurants(Ricki's All day grill and pub, Sardinia's, McDonald's, Tim Horton's) close by. Our prices when compared to... More

Thank you for your comments. Prices in Saskatoon flucuate. Be careful with online websites that advertise rates as they purposely will post lower rates for future dates but not the dates you are choosing, they will also not let you cancel, make you prepay and make there money doing all these things.
