“Worst Hotel You'll Experience”
Reviewed 18 February 2012

The service is very poor. The front desk is very rude especially the Asian guy who is assign to work. The place is messy. Rooms smells like [--] . If you wanna go in Winnipeg, don't ever try to put this Hotel in your mind cause you would be disappointed that this kind of hotel still exist in Canada. Some lights are not working at all. Even if you first get inside the hotel, you could smell like pee in the entrance area. No shampoo in the washroom.

All I can say is 'stay away' from this property if you expect any kind of customer service.

We went to this hotel not knowing what to expect, it used to be a great place when we were in college back in the 70's .
We saw the sign that they just put in a waterpark so we thought we would give it a try for our grandson's birthday party.
We were totally amazed at the waterpark and how clean the hotel was. From the moment we walked in we felt welcomed and made to feel very important.
The pool area has 2 great slides , that not only the young children enjoyed but our adult children and even us the grandparents had too much fun.
The pool was warm enough for my 3 month old niece and yes the kiddie pool and umbrella were great. The hottubs were wonderful and everything ,clean clean clean.

Then we used the party room that fit all 45 of us to have pizza and drinks. They even have it decorated so you don't need to bring anything in.
The food in the restaurant was a great variety and also had a buffet if you wanted that.
The rooms were very clean and comfortable.

I have already recommended this place to many of my friends and relatives for future parties.
Thanks Mary and staff for making this such a great birthday for our grandson.

I booked a room in advance for my sons 14th birthday party. When I got to the hotel, I thought the desk clerk was acting very standoffish but I went to the room anyway. I did inform the clerk that it was a kids party and we would pay extra for guests to swim. When I got to the room, it smelled very strong of human pee. My nephew showed up with his 3 kids and they could smell it too. I bent down and smelled the bedding and it smelled just like a diaper full of pee. I went to the desk and politely asked if we could change rooms or have the room cleanded. He notified the room cleaner and she went to the room and told my guests to get out. When I showed up at the room she wasn't there and my guests were standing in the hallway. I went to look for her and when I found her she said to me " you can go now, we don't have a room for you so just go". I was stunned! I went to the desk and the clerk said that we could leave or wait for the manager but he didn't know when the manager would be back. I couldn't believe it. We left and found a much better hotel and we will never go there again. DUMP and rude people working there to boot.
