    « Small and disappointed »

    We stayed two nights and for our family of 2 parents and 2 teens the room was very squishy.. especially after we added a cot to the room. Bathroom sink is across from the small bathroom and offers no space for our toiletries. But it was fairly modern clean and quiet tho. After we checked out tho I noticed the hotel room deposit was not returned after 7 days. Its been over 2 weeks now and they told me the deposit will not be returned for 3 to 4 weeks. We left the room in good condition and no damages. I'm not impressed the deposit takes so long at Best Western. We've stayed at other hotels and all of them return the deposits 3 or 4 days usually. So we will never use a Best Western again

    « Great Spur of the Moment Visit with Great Environmental Controls! »

    This is a pretty standard BW but the staff were very friendly. I didn't have a reservation but they were still more than happy to put me up for the night. It was a pretty standard room; nothing super interesting about it but it was clean and I could get the temperature where I wanted it (cooler) quite easily without too much nice. I know this sounds strange but I really don't enjoy trying to lower the temperature in a room and have to deal with the banging and clanging and air noise that comes off some A/C units these days. I still like the paper delivered to me in the morning; always a nice touch when I don't have to go to the front desk to request it like in most places. Wasn't satisfied with the coffee but I really wasn't expecting much for room brewed coffee. If you're in the neighbourhood and looking for a place to stay, you'd be worse off staying somewhere other than here.

    A good hotel with friendly and helpful staff. We came to the area mainly to visit the Reynolds-Alberta Museum which is located a short driving distance away (about 3km). Later we had dinner in Barney's Pub and found that as well as good food and drinks they also had keno and off track betting.

    « Nice surprize »

    On a recent business trip I stayed at the hotel, I've never visited this town before and didn't have high expectations for the level of accommodation given the proximity to Edmonton. Very nice surprize, the hotel was clean and well taken care of with the rooms providing a level of comfort not normally found in a smaller town. The hotel is much larger than the outside appearance suggests and is very convenient to highway 2. If you're looking for an alternative to staying in Edmonton the travel time to the airport is only 30 minutes so is a consideration if you're looking to avoid the traffic into the city from the airport. The hotel is only 2 km from the Reynolds museum which really is a must see if you're in the area, a remarkable facility that is very interactive for adults and children alike.

    Good room, friendly staff.Room clean except for a little dust. could not set clock but it didn't matter. Reported this at checkout and they said they would look into it and put new clock in. Could have provided TV information instead of guest doing trial and error to see what channels were available.

    « Small but very well appointed »

    This Best Western is a small hotel that packs a pretty big punch. The room I was in was tiny but had everything a person could want, a fridge, TV, ironing board, hair dryer and a comfy bed. The restaurant was decent albeit the service was slow. The bar/lounge was a hopping place. The place is very clean and the staff are very friendly.

    « Forget the points get the fruit tray »

    This was not my first trip to this location but I was looking forward to it. Since I was here last there have been some upgrades to the rooms which were very well done. The staff are very friendly and the facility is clean. If you are a best western rewards member forego the extra points and take the snack. It's a wonderful fruit tray big enough for 2 to share and it was delicious. The mattress was super comfy and I had a great night's sleep. The restaurant that is onsite serves good food. It was all you can eat roast beef dinner for $14.95 my first night with a monstrous yorkshire pudding. This also came with a salad bar and ice cream. The second night was prime rib which was a large piece exactly how I wanted it. I will be staying here again in the near future, you should as well.

    « Very Good Place to stay in Wetaskiwyn »

    Good value for the money. Exceeded expectations. Good range of services. Decent restaurant in hotel. Would definitely stay here again and recommend for other travelers. Ask for a ground room as there is no elevator.

    « Very nice room »

    Very nice room, has been renovated recently. I didn't see an elevator in the hotel so keep that in mind in room requests if you are unable to use stairs. My room looked out onto a very pretty courtyard.

    « Race Trip Getaway »

    Hotel was great. Breakfast was to be included at time of booking and upon arrival it became available for a price of 2 for $15.00. Other than that the staff was great and hotel was in a great location to a lot of amenities. The rooms were very clean and very comfortable beds. Tv was lacking on watchable channels.

    « Dont let the outside look fool you »

    Doesn't look like much from the outside, but rooms were very nice. clean and contemporary. Limited menu items for good, but what we had was good. Has a bar and a restaurant so no need to go far. Better than most for service as Best Westerns go!

    « good location and meals »

    The rooms are very comfortable, and have everything you need to relax in after a long day. The wifi worked much better this time than the last time I stayed here, so I was most pleased with that. The buffets in the restaurant were awesome! Lots to choose from, all you can eat and priced a very reasonable cost.

    « GREAT EXPERIENCE »

    Exceptional experience , great staff, great selection of food items on restaurant and bar menu. The outside of the hotel looked a little tired but the inside was awesome and well accented. The stay was well worth the money and convenient to the locations I needed to be at each day.

    « Good Night's Sleep »

    We found this hotel to be very clean and the staff was friendly. Tasty and very generous breakfasts in the restaurant. The beds were comfortable and it was nice and quiet. The outside of the place doesn't look that great, but it's the hospitality and cleanliness that matter to me the most.

    « Very Pleasant Staff »

    The staff was very pleasant, and the room was good value for the amount paid. The only issues were the cleaning staff left dirty cleaning towels in our room, and it took a long time for the shower to start providing hot water.

    « Superb »

    I was unsure of what I would get when I booked here. To my surprise, a great room with amazing customer service, and the best place to est in town. I stayed 4 nights, and the food was fantastic every day. We payed $135 a night.

    « A nice place to stay! »

    The rooms are clean and well maintained. The hotel is quiet and although there is no free breakfast the restaurant is an affordable roundhouse style option for meals. we did not use the restaurant, but other family members stated that it was nice.
