In Saskatoon, it seems like all of the hotels are pretty expensive. Trying to satisfy my budget, this was the least expensive option I could find for my age (19) - some hotels require you to be 21 to check-in. There was a complimentary, small buffet breaking in the dining area (I didn't go), but it was nice to discover they offered this, as I didn't know about it beforehand. The room was just that - a room. In the heart of winter and cold there, I just cranked the thermostat up and was able to stay warm all night. There was a decent sized TV with basic channels, and a small desk in the corner. Overall, if you're looking for a deluxe hotel, this isn't it. If you're on a budget and need a place to sleep, this will be perfect for you. No complaints for an "average" hotel. Good eating is at "Ricky's" a half-block away.
Staff were very helpful and accommodating although the motel is old and dated. For a one night stay - getting in late and moving on the next day - it was fine for me.
Clean basic hotel
Definitely nice people at check-in and check-out. The rooms were nothing special. The real problems I had were the door to the site didn't fully close, and the shower did not have a scald guard system on it. So I could tell when others were using their rooms. SUCKS! Oh, also, the beds, LIKEA STIFF SHEET OF PLYWOOD. Also, what's the use in having a bathroom exhaust fan, if it doesn't work. LOL
Was a place to rest my head. The pillows were patheticly small. We were just spending the night then travelling on. The rooms need to be updated in order to compete with other chains. couldn't find the ice machine either. Wouldn't stay again.
