We stayed here in August 2015 on our way to Edmonton and stayed here again in August 2016. We were greeted by the friendly owner again upon arrival. Check in was quick and we were off to our room. We got the exact same room as last time and we were just as happy as the previous time. We all...

Pros: Price Spotless Comfortable beds Spacious with table and chairs Right off Highway but far enough so it is very quiet Cons: None This is an older hotel but it is very clean and quiet. Friendly manager who checked us in and recommended places for dinner. Will make this our regular stop over when we travel to Edmonton.

I have stayed many times at the Yellowhead Motel when travelling from the Coast to Edmonton. The rooms are basic but updated and extremely clean. The rates are reasonable in this day and age when it is rare to find such a quiet place for under $100. A good spot midway on this route.

We found ourselves looking for a last minute stay in Valemont and after finding one our friends had recommended was full, we did a review search. We were a bit skeptical about Yellowhead Motel as the rate was so low but the reviews were solid so we made a reservation. The gentleman that checked us in was pleasant and helpful....

On the advice of friends, we stayed here on our way home. The room was large and very clean, with a comfortable bed, a fridge and coffee maker. Everything we needed. The overall appearance of the motel is very pleasing, with lots of lovely flower boxes beneath each window. It is far enough away from the highway to be very...

Arrived in Velmount late in the evening and checked a couple of places. Yellow head was definitely the best choice. Not as expensive as its neighbors, yet very clean and nice. The rooms are big, with huge beds and nice bathrooms. Wooden furniture and nice flowers outside make the place very cozy.

My husband and I rolled into Valemount later in the day. We wanted to stay close to Jasper overnight and Jasper was booked. We looked at some hotel websites for a hotel in Valemount and nothing really caught our eye. As we were driving down the main street, we saw this little motel which we didn't see on the hotel...

Stayed overnight at the Yellowhead with my family this August and was very impressed by the motel's cleanliness and friendly staff. Francis, the owner was there to greet us and we proceeded to our room with two queen beds. The beds were very comfortable and I had one of the best sleeps in a hotel ever. The motel is modest...

If you're expecting a 5-star hotel experience you're in the wrong town. If you're looking for a small-town motel experience this is a good option. The rooms were clean and spacious. We got a mini-fridge, coffee maker and tv. It's close to the highway and to a few food options. The person at the front counter was very helpful and...

Nice clean rooms. Friendly staff. Rooms are older but in good shape with nice furnishings and comfortable beds. Off the highway far enough to be quiet. Walking distance to most restaurants. Have stayed here three times and it is my go to in Valemont. It is about 90 a night plus taxes, so around half the price of most places...
