The neighbours were noisy and when they quoted down the people upstairs had a party and then in the morning were slamming doors outside our room.

I booked through and specifically requested adjoining rooms. Upon arrival was informed that there were no adjoining rooms in their establishment. But as I was not informed I could not cancel my reservation as it was too late. I tried to upgrade for a larger suite but they could not accommodate. Requested a cot but they did not have any. Tried to order room service but their oven was broken. It also took almost an hour to get through to room service so I called the front desk. Their response was they couldn't help because it was an independant restaurant that handled that and they don't get involved. Not fun. And the hot tub at the pool was broken.

There is a difference between being a thrifty hotel and a dumpy hotel! This is a dumpy hotel and for just a bit of effort could have been much better.... 1). Even though check in knew we were 3 adults and a child we were given 2 towels each day 2). No where to hang up clothes. Hang them over the broken chair. 3). Bathroom was in dire need of TLC. Mould, missing tiles. 4). Toilet was oval shaped but the seat was round....and too small. 5). Extremely small room. 6). Continental breakfast was adequate...cream was sour and milk was off. Staff was informed but had no other supplies to bring out. Don't touch the hard boiled eggs....just plain nasty. There has to be other inexpensive hotels in Saskatoon to try for a few nights. Avoid this one. If people keep coming...why would they do the basic, necessary improvemnets and repairs.

I had a very nice time in Saskatchewan,visiting family and sights of the city.I would definitely stay in the Thriftlodge again.

We usually stay at the Idylwyld location when we visit family in the area. It is located close to Circle Drive so access is easy to any part of the city.

Aside from the one night's stay where our towels were taken and not replaced, the overall service was pretty good! Definitely would go back.

Should be put under wrecking ball. Air conditioning did not work. Lock to door quit functioning.......fixed myself to avoid staff incompetence. Questionable area and clientele.

I should've known what I was up to- as soon as we got to the hotel a couple and their two small children who had just arrived where packed up and leaving. The whole place smells bad/ the "double" beds are v small, the pull out couch had dirt, and HAIR on it- the carpet is stained, the bathtub is covered in grime.... just not a nice place to stay at all. All the furniture is damaged, the plumbing is messed up- and the AC unit takes a v long time to kick in. I would rate this hotel level NORTHGATE. Please avoid both these hotels. I have posted a good 8 or 9 photos- so please check them out. This place isn't worth your money so you might as well pay the extra $35 and go to Holiday Inn Express downtown. This place is absolutely terrible.

The air conditioner was not working as well there was no hot water and after running it for 5 min the front desk told me to continue to run it for another 5 min but that never helped. On check out the only offered to wave the tax value. Not very impressed.

very poor , dirty room , 1 bath towel, blood sugar test strip on the floor, dirty marks on walls, needs heavy upgrade, paneling falling off wall by toilet, poor caulking job. will not stay here again. Wyndham should be ashamed to even rent this place. will be more carefull with Wyndham motel, will not rent again .
