    Excellent Service as they went out of there way to accomodate our family. We had a great time in the pool and i liked the fitness center. There was a hockey tournament that weekend but they put us in a quiet wing away from the noise, greatly appreciated.

    Always a very good stay. This year not a lot of holidays as I have had a knee replacement in June, and could not get away. Another one coming up in March, so can hopefully get away in the summer. I am glad I only have two knees.

    « Nice stay and well located »

    They offered full hot breakfast and the bed are comfy. The Wifi is not great too bad, but everything else is good. I will recommend this hotel for anyone travelling to Wainwright, AB. I love the swimming pool

    « excellent in every way »

    My family and I stayed at the Best Western in Wainwright AB the service was excellent in every way. The room was very clean and spacious. My kids loved the breakfast... lots of choices and fresh. I would recommend this place to anyone

    « Enjoyed our recent stay here »

    Checked in here recently - front desk staff very friendly. Room was immaculate and bed very comfy. Breakfast had a lot of great options. Would definitely recommend this accommodation when in Wainwright.

    « Nice accommodations. Clean rooms, friendly staff. Smokers allowed. »

    I usually stay at Holiday Inn cuz the beds are comfortable and they have Jacuzzi Suites. Where I was going, there was no Holiday Inn. So we were forced to find other accommodations. Best Western was a good choice for us, as they have Jacuzzi Suites and allowed smoking in the room. The room was nice, clean and fresh smelling! Not too bad of a price for what we had, around $200 bucks. We also had hot/cold breakfast included. The food wasn't the best, however did fill us up. All in all it was good. I would definitely go back to this particular BW, in Wainwright, AB. The hotel is clean and the staff was great!

    « Wouldn't even swim in this pool »

    I have no complaints about the service, which was quite good. However, there was a major issue with the cleanliness of the pool-patches of inch-thick scum floating at bottom of pool, and visible areas where it had not been cleaned-you could see wipe marks where it had been cleaned, so it was obvious where it had not. The scum was the worst though. We did not allow our kids to go in the pool-resulting in much disappointment. Also, the breakfast was sub-par to what we're used to at other hotels in same price point. And there was no TV guide listing the shows that were playing. Just a channel guide(ie-ABC, NBC, CBC...), and you had to scroll through all 50some channels to see what shows were on.

    « Always a great stay »

    We have stayed here many times, over the last 4 years. Never had a single complaint! We have almost always had the family suite, which is a king-size bed, with a separate room with two twin beds. Rooms have a fridge and microwave, as well as two TVs. Rooms are spacious, modern, and clean. Staff is always friendly and efficient. There is a great little breakfast area, where you can get coffee and tea at any time of the day. The pool and hot tub are clean and my overly chlorinated. Would recommend this to anyone traveling with kids!

    « Such a great hotel for Wainwright »

    I'm not fond of Wainwright when I have to go there but this hotel makes up for it. Great location close to Tim Hortons, Walmart and gas stations. The hotel is new or newer than ones I've been staying in. Great room with very nice quality beds and pillow. We got free wifi and free breakfast. The staff were very nice and courteous. Good hotel.

    This is 1 of 2 hotels I would use in Wainwright. I find the staff friendly the beds and rooms comfortable. The room rates are higher than other communities including larger communities. The breakfast is nothing to brag about

    « Great Hotel »

    I stayed here for a few nights while on a business trip. The hotel was clean and cosy. The room was average but comfortable. The bonus was the free breakfast every morning with a pretty good spread. I would recommend this hotel for anyone in the area looking for great accommodations with some great amenities.

    « OK but nothing special »

    Compared to other Best Westerns in BC and Alberta. This hotel is vastly overpriced. Rooms are average. Pool and hottube very small. Exercise room average. Breakfast is the standard fair. An average hotel at a premium price. Don't know how they justify the price??

    We stayed here with friends on a motorcycle trip. Diane at reception was excellent. She recommended several good places to eat and even offered to get a taxi to take us to the restaurant. A bonus is that they have Gluten Free Brown Rice Krispies. What a plus. They have a pool and hot tub so we all enjoyed our evening with the pool and hot tub The hotel is very clean. The beds are great and even being in a busy area the hotel is very quiet. We will definitely stay here again.

    Overall good quality, very clean property, comfortable rooms, good breakfast, convenient location, did find it a little pricey for a small town, very friendly staff, free parking, nicely equipped room.

    « Great value. Great stay. »

    Very clean and friendly staff. Hot tub and pool area was small but sufficient. Continental breakfast was very good with a choice of yogourt, fruit, cereals and toast. Make your own waffles and a warm meat with eggs and potatoes. I would definitely stay here again.

    « Outstanding Hotel »

    Staff very friendly and knowledgable. Hotel is clean and rooms are great too. Was able to provide more rooms for our stay even during a busy period. I would recommend this hotel to anyone and give it a 5 star rating. Staff provided us guidance on hotels and which ones officer discounts when staying at the hotel.

    « Excellent staff and nice setup »

    Staff were excellent. Rooms were clean and well maintained. Internet was sometimes slow, but there were a lot of people in the hotel. Good location. Noisy in the rooms near the pool/gym. Breakfast had its ups and downs, but overall ok. Will return if in Wainwright again.

    « Wainwright visit »

    My husband and I, accompanied by our dog went to Wainwright to visit. We stayed in the Best Western, and there was no problem finding a pet friendly room. We were on the 3rd floor, and the room was a room with 2 queens. It was very clean, the bed was super comfy, linens very crisp and clean and internet was snappy. We enjoyed the breakfast in the morning which had a good variety of foods to choose from, all included in the nights stay. We would stay here again with no qualms and would recommend it to anyone. Great Job Best Western. The only thing I would say is the AC in the room would come on frequently and was loud. I mentioned it to the front desk and they said they would have mainenance look into it. Effiecient and responsive.

    « Loved the executive suite »

    I travelled with my spouse and 2 year old son. We rented a suite and my son slept in the other room on the hide-a-bed couch. We enjoyed having a door between the 2 rooms so we could watch TV and use internet while the kid was sleeping.

    « Great place to stay! »

    We stayed at the Best Western Wainwright in April to attend the Graduation Ceremony of our Son into the Princess Patricia's. We were greeted by a friendly front desk clerk and the positive stay continued from that point until the end of our stay. The Rooms were very clean and well stocked, the beds were super comfortable and the complimentary breakfast on both days was delicious and abundant. When checking out we were even supplied with a complimentary bottle of water for our drive back to Edmonton. The friendly and accommodating staff made our stay very pleasant. I would recommend this hotel to anyone planning a trip to Wainwright.

    « Fantastic! »

    We stayed at the Best Western Wainwright Inn and Suites in January 2016 because we were attending the Alberta Junior Provincial Curling championships. The staff went above and beyond excellence to accommodate the needs of the athletes. For example, if the teams had late morning games, the staff would extend the breakfast times so that the curlers could sleep in a bit and still have time to eat a great breakfast! They were friendly and genuinely interested in how the kids were doing. If we ever find ourselves in Wainwright again, we won't have to put any thought into where we stay :)

    « Another Best, Best Western »

    If you've read any of my reviews you know Best Western is my hotel of choice, and the Wainwright location is yet another perfect example of what makes Best Western the most consistent hotel chain. The hotel is spotless, rooms are modern, super clean, comfy everything you'd expect. What sets this location apart is the staff. Super friendly, helpful, cheerful, I don't have enough good words! I don't have one negative thing to say about this location. Everything was excellent, even breakfast was better than most locations. I look forward to staying at this location again!

    Our room at Best Western Inn &Suites in Wainwright Alberta was perfect! The rooms were a great size, clean and well stocked. Nothing was missing and because it was clean and inviting when we came in, we felt we had made a great choice of hotels. The staff were all very pleasant, informative, and friendly. The pool and hot tub were available if you wanted to use them! In the morning the breakfast they provided was wonderful. Lots of variety and definitely something for evergone! We really enjoyed our stay and would stay there the next time we were in town!

    « great sleep quality »

    We stayed for just a night on our way home from a trip, but this was the best sleep I had. The queen bad was tucked away in a cozy room off the living area. The bed itself was soft, yet supportive and the linens lovely and clean. The room itself seemed very new or well maintained. Breakfast was quite good. Yogurt parfaits and warm hard boiled eggs were the highlight, but there were many other choices. The breakfast service showed evidence of attention to hygiene. Cutlery is stored in a dispenser, most condiments are single serve packets and staff use gloves and hairnets to handle the food. The only item I noticed missing is a hand sanitizer. Staff were helpful and friendly. The 10% off for 1979 restaurant was also an unexpected plus (the cards are on the check in desk) The only frustrations we experienced were the bathrooms. They seemed to be a testament to poor planning. Be careful opening the door to the ladies room by the lobby. The door will whack the toilet. The bathroom in our room was exceedingly cramped, but at least clean. All in all, this hotel is excellent in the categories that really matter. Would stay here again any time and understand why my husband always chooses this hotel when in Wainwright.

    « Clean and comfortable »

    We stayed here at Christmas, so it was very quiet and empty. Clean rooms, excellent service, good hot breakfast. Everything you would hope to get at a chain hotel. Some are better than others, and this is one of the better ones.

    « Beautiful Room, great value »

    We booked a family suite, it was warm, large, clean and very quiet. The breakfast was very good and the staff worked hard to maintain the cleanliness and stock levels because the hotel was quite busy. The pool and hot tub were small but clean and in good repair.

    « A good Hotel »

    A very nice upscale Best West. Stayed here 2 weeks on business, in an executive suite. The separate bed living room gave me a lot of space. Nice bathroom, shower only. Lots of towels and hot water. Very clean, 2 TV's and a couch. The only glitch was the heating system. The thermostat and heat/air unit was in the separate bedroom. In order to heat or cool the living room area, you had to leave the bedroom door open and run the heat/air hard to raise or lower the living room temperature. Of course that made the bedroom uncomfortably hot or cold. I could find no way around this built in fault. But, blazing fast internet, good work desk. A nice kitchen counter and sink. Very quiet. Diverse hot breakfast. Nice entry, friendly staff. I would stay here again.

    « Best Western stands for its name! »

    I was staying on a business trip in summer of 2015 and believe this is the one of the best in wainwright. They have very friendly staff, excellent room service and food. They had probably one of the best WiFi connections that I got in any Wainwright hotel. The gym and pool were respectable and clean. They had very comfortable beds and decent size TV's.

    « Pleasant stay »

    Definitely one of the better hotels I've stayed at. I opted for the executive suite which was very clean, quiet and relaxing. The mattress was fine, not too hard or soft. In addition, the staff were knowledgeable, friendly and efficient. Great stay.

    « Fantastic Wainwright Hotel »

    My daughter and I stayed at the Best Western, Wainwright for 4 nights during curling provincials. All of the staff were so friendly and very accommodating. Keeping the breakfast buffet open past their serving time, so that curling teams with a later draw could still eat. The breakfast room was always spotless and the food well stocked! Housekeeping was always friendly and patient, when we were not out of our rooms for cleaning. We found the beds to be very comfortable and really needed the small room fridge. Trying to feed 14 people in our hotel room, was challenging and not very comfortable. We were able to set up our food in the breakfast room for our curling team and parents. Some items were left behind at the hotel and we were promptly called to we could pick these items up. Great customer service seems hard to find these days. We had an amazing and comfortable experience and would not hesitate to stay here again!

    Stayed here due to a hunting trip at Camp Wainwright. Location was excellent and they were very accommodating to the hunters staying there. Very clean, staff was professional and requests were handled quickly. The complimentary breakfast was fresh and also included a hot breakfast. Only problem was that the hunters had to leave by 6:30 am for a meeting ion the base and this did not leave us much time to enjoy the meal. We also received a discount coupon to a nice pub in town. Would recommend this place for anyone to stay. We had a suite for my so and I. had lots of room to accommodate us and the hunting gear.

    It is always a good place to stay. The staff are friendly, and helpful, and can recommend places for dining. The rooms are always clean, and the beds are very comfortable. The breakfast room has something for everyone. I never leave hungry. I think they will even make you a lunch to go. They have an exercise room, pool, and hot top that are always clean, with lots of towels. I always chose Best Western in Wainwright to stay when I am working in the area.

    « Wonderful 3 night stay »

    One of my favourite Best Westerns! The room was very clean, the bed was incredibly comfortable, and they have all these small touches to make the stay more comfortable - such as snacks in the room. \\ The breakfast is the best Continental of any hotel I have been to. They had little omelettes that even had veggies and what looked like real cheese in them! Staff were always friendly and said Hi all the time. They were responsive when I needed something. The hotel is located directly across the road from a Loblaw store, and in the same parking lot as a Walmart. The room had a microwave and fridge and little kitchen area. Would definitely stay again.

    I was there with my daghter and grandchildren, The pool was nice and warm. The lady that was at the front desk the morning of Oct 11 was very friendly, she was also looking after the dining area, and we had a cleaning lady that got extra paper and pens so each child had 1. Those little things help to make a trip enjoyable.

It is easy to find, and located next to Canadian Tire, grocery store next door, and Tim Hortons, and Wallmart close by.

    We were initially to stay in another hotel but were not happy and decided to try the Best From the moment we stepped in to the lobby and spoke with the front desk person we felt welcomed and informed. The rooms we needed were available. The front desk was able to arrange rooms across the hall from each other. They were large, very clean and well taken care of. The stay included breakfast which was like a small buffet. The ladies kept the food area very clean; so appreciated. The pool and hot tub area were also clean and nice to use. Overall a very good stay; well worth the change in hotels. Would not hesitate to stay again and certainly would recommend it to family & friends
