HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 8 February 2017 via mobile

Stayed for one night on our way back to Calgary. We had a room on the main floor without anyone above us. We were traveling with our small dog who can be a bit reactive to any slight noise-but even he slept through the night without a peep! The place seemed pretty full but not a lot of noise- reception...

This was a one night stay which made the place okay. It was quiet and right across the street from the Falls. The beds were good, but the suite lacked the usual furniture. Only a kitchen table with four chairs. No other furniture other than the beds. Would not have been comfortable for a long stay.

It's always a great place to stay, clean rooms, friendly people, well stocked kitchen for a kitchenette and the best hotel breakfast you can get! We will definitely come back and stay anytime we're in the area!

Stayed for the night on a road trip. Good clean rooms, excellent omelettes for breakfast, and the price is right. Walk along the water and to restaurants right in front of the hotel. Would definitely stay here again!

We stayed at this hotel March 13&14 2017. We had a nice clean room with comfortable beds and plenty of fresh towels and washcloths. I can't remember the name of the young man who checked us in but he was very sweet to these two old ladies. We were lost (sort of) so I called to ask directions and he...

This hotel is well worth the stop in your travels, it is definitely a 5 star rating. The breakfast was excellent with omelettes prepared to your satisfaction and many other items as well. This hotel is well located and easy to find off of inter state 15. For all you snowbirds heading south or returning home I highly recommend it.

I had to pay a little bit extra to stay on the second floor but it was worth it. Great view of the river. Rooms were very nice and breakfast was way above average. Having someone there making omelettes was great.
