Canadas Best Value Inn2.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
This hotel is cheap...and not in a good way. The room had one packet of coffee and 2 sugar; so only one guest could have coffee. The maintenance is very poor as is the cleanliness. There were splashes of somethung gross on the wall above the bed and above the table with the coffee. There was unsanded mud on the wall, adhesive smeared all around the tub, no silicone around the tub. Just an overall feeling of not taken care of. There were no swimsuit bags. The breakfast was fairly comprehensive with a wide selection of sugar and more sugar. They did have boiled eggs. They are the first hotel we have ever stayed at that doesn't allow you to fill your thermos with coffee. Although, since their coffee was old and bitter, it was no great loss. We come to Valemount frequently and booked too late to get our usual hotel; which is rated lower than this one but is much nicer. We won't make that mistake again.
While visiting Valemount to see Mt Robson we stayed here for 2 days. Not sure if it was because it was after a long weekend or because we used online app but we got a three yes three beds in our room. Two TV's and free WIFI. Rooms were very clean and they even cleaned our room without us even asking for room service. They have a pool, sauna, hot tub and even a small water slide. They offer a nice continental breakfast each morning from 6 - 9 am. Loved our stay and would definitely come back again.
We phoned around before arriving, and this was the best price we found. The rooms were okay. We had a large group and this hotel couldn't provide extra cots, so some of us had to sleep on the floor. The WiFi was VERY slow, so the kids hated it. Great breakfast room and a nice indoor pool with hot tub and indoor slide.
We were passing through Valemont on our way from Vancouver to Edmonton and were planning on camping but it was pouring with rain so we booked a room at this hotel for 2 people plus a dog (for a $15 fee). Our total incl taxes and fees for 2 double beds was $200 for the night. What a dismal place. Our tub didn't look like it had been cleaned as it had someone else's hair all stuck to it, our sheets had a stain on it and the room needed a good scrub and some TLC. Slapping a coat of paint on a run down dirty hotel doesn't justify charging folks $165 a night. The breakfast doesn't really make it worth it either. Bagels/toast/cereal/hard boiled eggs/waffles/muffins/danishes/yogurt/coffee/juice/milk. Your best bet if you're heading east is to keep going an extra hour and stay in Jasper.
They had us in a room over the office that had an A/C unit that didn't work. no window to the outside just to the hall way. Room looked like an old storage room that they converted. no smoke detector in room.
Room had an interior pool access... neat water slide for the kids. Average rooms (sink not in the main bathroom). Laundry was expensive... cost us $4 to dry clothes half dry... $8 total on the dryer alone. Valemount by the way doesn't have too many places to eat but this is a hotel you might consider when travelling through. Breakfast good.
Having visited Valemont before and enduring a terrible experience at the Premier Mountain Lodge, we were looking for an affordable comfortable room for us and our teenaged granddaughter. We were misled by booking.com which advertised a room at Canada's Best Value Inn that would accommodate two adults and one child. Since the property was otherwise fully booked, we reserved that room and paid online. Upon arrival, we found a wonderful room with king size bed awaiting us. The desk clerk indicated that there were no cots or alternate rooms available except room 201 which has two double Murphy beds, no outside window and a quite inadequate air conditioner. Again, with no alternatives available, we accepted this much less acceptable accommodation. No adjustment in price was offered. Notwithstanding this unfortunate turn of events, the property is well suited to business or family travellers with its pool, fitness, sauna , hot tub and water slide facility. A former Ramada Inn, the property has been completely renovated and we believe that the 'normal' rooms should be good value for money. The free breakfast is offered in a second floor open area overlooking the pool and is a 'deluxe continental' offering both hot and cold breakfast fare.
Was able to secure a room the same day by calling them directly. Simple rooms, strange layout as bathroom sink was right beside the door when you walk in. Small bathroom, outdated but clean. Our room had sliding doors that lead directly to the indoor pool. Got there in the evening so pool noise wasn't an issue at all. VERY loud A/C however. It was hot so didn't have much of a choice. Good internet, free parking, basic breakfast. Close to restaurants. Right off the highway but didn't hear any trucks. Friendly front desk. Good for getting rest and moving on the next day.
The hotel was clean and we could tell that thet had renovated. There were a few bugs in our room, which was an annoyance more than anything else. My only big complaint was the time they set for breakfast and opening the pool. Breakfast and the pool were included with the stay, but the pool wasn't open until 9am and breakfast wasn't served until 6:30am. We had to be up early for travelling, and have stayed in hotels that serve breakfast at 6am, and that open the pool around that time as well.
I stayed here for one night on the way through. The checking-in process was completed as quickly as I've ever experienced. Plenty of parking. Even though it's next to the highway, I didn't have any problems with traffic noise. Plenty of restaurants and a fast-food place nearby. The "downtown" area is an easy 10- to 15-minute walk away. The room was spacious and clean. The bed was comfortable. The wifi was hit and miss (fast, then slow; connected, then disconnected -- in short, same as every other hotel with "free" [aka included] wifi). Everything else was good. The breakfast available in the breakfast room was fine. Price was reasonable. I'd stay here again if the opportunity arose.
