Decent facility to stay at if you find yourself stuck in Cochrane for the night. Friendly family run operation. Clean rooms - though in need of refurbishing. I choose this motel because of their pet friendly policy. An extra $15 for your pet which is fairly standard. However, for the charge, I figure my dog was entitled to sleep on...

The owner here didn't know what he was doing. My plans changed and I needed to stay another week, so I let them know and all was well. I went in the next morning and the dad or grandpa said I didn't tell them and he booked it online and had to "honour the online system". So I went outside...

The man who runs it is beyond rude! As a tourist he VERY poorly reflects Cochrane and would most certainly turn travelers away from future visits (I actually cut my trip short by a few days as a result) I had a drunk man pounding on my motel door till 5 in the morning. This motel claims to be open...

I booked two weeks ahead for a non smoking room. I arrived and despite my reservation they said they had no non smoking rooms left. They did not offer any solution or apology. The room had cigarette burns in all of the bedding and furnature. In addition, the rooms are poorly insulated and therefore you can hear every single noise...

This is obviously an older hotel that is need of renovations, however, effort is being put into this. When it is complete this should be a nice place to stay. Staff was very personable.

The location is good. After many, many trips through Cochrane I decided to try this one. The room looked like it had been furnished with the discards from a charity shop. The linen was not the cleanest. One of the pillow cases looked like someone had used it as a handkerchief. The bed felt like it was going to sink...
