They are renovating the upper floor that have outside access. This is taking up parking. The parking was not good to begin with. Try to arrive before 5:00 to be able to park easy. I have stayed here many times because of the location. Since last spring they changed the Wi-Fi. Not for the better. It is quite slow. This...

This ground floor unit had two queen beds - one had a bent leg, causing the bed to list. Fear of it breaking right off prevented us from bending it back. Which left us with the second bed. The springs were so significantly present that I was prevented from turning when laying straight. Not a comfortable position to hold for...

Prompt attention at the check in with complete information I regards to amenities and operation of wifi. The room was very clean and well decorated, appears to be a fairly new renovation. The biggest complaint is the rubber under sheet, wow is that hot. Why they have that I don't know.

This was my second time staying here. First time was a one night stay and the second time was a two night stay, both were excellent stays! Rooms are always clean and very comfortable and front desk staff were extremely friendly as well as house keeping (as we did not need service we just needed a few things). I have...

Excellent hotel, terrific location right between Chinook Centre (about 2 blocks north) and Southcentre (about 5 blocks south.) Great selection of restaurants close by, and even a delicious pizza shop next door that is open until 2am. Room was very clean, bathroom worked fine, and the three pools (including a children's wading pool) were clean and a good diversion for...

We stayed here for one night. Chose this hotel as it had a pool and breakfast. Room was a bit smelly.. Old smelling faint cigarette smoke. Looks like they might be doing some renos (which is needed) carpet was pretty stained. Pool/hot tub were clean. Front desk staff was friendly, although I did ask for them to check to see...

This was my forth time staying here in the last few years. The front desk staff are always friendly and helpful. On this visit, Marie was extra helpful in assisting me to extend my stay, despite the hotel being booked up. She's an angel. The included breakfast is modest but adequate. The pool is available for recreation. The rooms and...

Room was horrible. Smelled like an ashtray. Front desk, management was my helpful at all. Bathroom was dirty and moldy. Wallpaper was falling off the walls. A/C was about as powerful as a poof of air. Overall not worth a penny. We left our luggage in the vehicle for fear of absorbing horrible smell. Don't stay here.

We stayed here twice in the past 2 weeks. Both for 2-night stays. The first stay was OK, but the 2nd..OMG. The rooms are VERY basic, certainly not worth the price charged. We had booked both stays in advance (at the same time), otherwise we probably would not have returned. When we checked in the 2nd time, it was late...

We stayed at this hotel again, and as usual, the staff were very friendly when we check'd inn. The guy that made the reservation however had a lot of trouble because he was new and had a hard time understanding me, and me understanding him.
