Cardston's a small place and there aren't a lot of options for lodging. Luckily South Country Inn is a good option (and perhaps the best as I see reviews for the other places in town). The building is a bit "tired" as other reviewers have mentioned (although management seems to be working on that slowly). And yet we were pleased... More

We are New Englanders passing through on our way to Glacier National Park. We have high expectations with accommodations and I was very pleased with this hotel. It is quiet, very clean, indoor pool very clean and much appreciate the complementary waters in the fridge. Everyone is super, super nice

Good location downtown right next to a restaurant open from 7am- 9pm. Short hop to the golf course and Mormon Temple. Room was clean, good beds and shower. Fridge and microwave in room. Fridge was a little weak but worked. TV was old school with basic channel package. Pool was good... All in all, quite satisfactory although the morning coffee... More

We have stayed here many times as it's the best option in this small town, and always request a pet room. The rooms are not the cleanest and every time we are there the night clerk is very rude to us. Happy to say that we no longer have to come back to this town so that we are not... More

We've stayed several times starting when it first opened. It's no 5 star but it the best place to stay in this town.... It's definitely seen better years. They were doing something to the 3rd floor as we were woken up early with intense vacuuming directly above us. Our kids thought someone was playing a racing game. I'm hoping they... More

It's a small town, so not much is available. The AC didn't work in the room we were given, so they moved us to a room downstairs where the room seemed cooler, turned out the AC didn't work here either, but being half underground made it cool enough we were able to sleep.

A solid place to stay. Clean, very friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again even though I usually look for 4+star hotels. Everything worked, smelled and looked clean and not tired at all like many at this level. Great local golf course nearby.

We did not know what to expect in Cardston as we traveled through Alberta, but we were pleasantly surprised to find the South Country Inn. The room was very nice, and the staff was friendly enough. We would recommend the Inn to anyone who might be in the area.

My husband stayed there for a weekend while we were there for a family reunion. The place is definitely basic and out-dated, but it was good for what it was.

“As there is little traffic through Cardston in the night, there is no real need to select a room away from the road. If you are good with stairs, I would suggest an upper room as the floors are a little thin and regular walking around above can be easily heard in the room below.”
