Check in was fast and friendly, the staff seemed to remember us from our last stay. We were just looking for a room for the night so we didn't use the pool or gym, but we did go for the free continental breakfast the following morning. There is something for everyone and it was constantly monitored so if you needed anything all you had to do was ask. Our room had two queen beds, (very comfortable with lots of pillows), a Kerig coffee maker, and was clean and spacious for what we needed. We didn;t have any problems connecting to the internet for browsing. As I said, we didn't use the pool this time but we have in the past and it is a fantastic pool with a water slide, infinity pool, waterfall, hot tub, and lots of tables, chairs and loungers to choose from. Very well kept, clean pool area, with lots of towels too. This Hotel is located just off the Trans Canada Highway, just outside of Winnipeg, so very easy to access. There is also a Denny's right next to it so you have that option if you don't feel like going out for a meal. All in all we had a great stay, loved the room, close to many Winnipeg attractions and very easy to get to!
This hotel is very clean, the room was very comfortable. The bed was very comfy. The pool was fun. The breakfast was excellent. We stayed there for 3 nights to visit Winnipeg. The location on Portage avenue is ideal to travel in town back and forth. The staff were very helpful and nice.
This hotel was approx. $85 Canadian a night and was worth it. Breakfast every morning was good and the hotel is in a good location. Right by MTS Iceplex and fun family activities such as Go Carts. It's also right by the horse tracks.
Nice place but found it a little high to stay one night compared to other hotels of similar status. I would try and find a different hotel do to the price. Otherwise the place is nice and clean. The room however did smell a little like someone had smoked in it.
Although this hotel is outside the city it is very convenient as you can go South or North on the Perimeter highway very easily and if you wish to go downtown you just go straight east. We went around the area with ease. The staff were very very friendly and accommodating and there were no problems whatsoever with our stay. All areas of the hotel were clean and well maintained.
Very good hotel. Great staff and clean modern rooms. Has restaurant 100 yards away. Location is in Headingley at west end of city which for me is a bonus when heading west home and not fighting morning DT traffic. Easy access to Perimeter Highway both directions
Exceptional staff, service and property. Property is lovely and modern without feeling cold. Room was spacious with two TVs. Beautiful bath with nice toiletries. Bed was lovely and comfortable. Great fitness room and pool. BEST BREAKFAST EVER! Perogies for breakfast is genius!
for the price, this place is a poor value. Much better options. Staff and manager were not accommodating when requesting a 30 min late checkout. room cleaning staff were rude. Would not recommend - look for another option.

Hello Ryan, I do apologize regarding the issues with the late check-out. I have already emailed your wife regarding this, and we are going to have a meeting with management to review our policies regarding late check-outs. I hope that you will come back to give us another chance to provide you with a superior stay. Thank you, Glen Van Alstyne General Manager
Good stay at this hotel. Great daily complimentary breakfast with a variety of fresh fruits and fruit cups, pastries, breads, mini egg omelettes, meats, potatoes, waffles, juice, yogurt and the list goes on! The front desk staff were very accommodating in changing my room location as the 2 Queen Suite booked was very close to an elevator and one specifically I requested to avoid. Unfortunately all of these rooms are similarly located therefore consider that in your booking. Beds were comfy and room size adequate. Great Wi-Fi connection. For a Best Western Plus hotel status there were things we've experienced in the past that really should be improved. The shower head was quite outdated, there was no safety deposit box, and housekeeping was not attentive to vacuuming the carpet. I am used to having lotion as part of the complimentary toiletries but this was not the case at this hotel. Despite a sign in the room saying if you've forgotten one of these items just contact the front desk...they were going to charge me $3.75 for a traditionally sized little bottle of lotion. I would say this was more a Best Western hotel versus a Best Western Plus hotel.
Traveling East through Manitoba on The Trans Canada Highway you will arrive in Headingly, Manitoba just on the Western Edge of Winnipeg. Best Western (BW) Has strategically located this facility with easy access to the North & South on the Perimeter Bi-pass or directly cruising into the Historical City of Winnipeg. The easy access and safe location of this facility provides service to Winnipeg Airport included with a stay at the hotel. We have been staying at this Best Western Facility on our trips to Winnipeg since it opened approximately four years ago. The staff and management are extremely service driven to provide a worry free, pleasant and comfortable stay. Great Parking, Clean Entrance!! When we walk in the door...they remember us! The Breakfast room is currently being serviced by a super energetic, friendly and efficient manager; always on the move, always working, takes time to smile, say hello and Greet her Guests, she works very hard to take maximum care with plenty of food and choice of items for her very hungry breakfast visitors. Check In and Check Out... the front desk team is on their game at all times; friendly, supportive and efficient. Always with a smile! The mechanical and service folks that care for the facility are always repairing, cleaning, washing the front entrance floors making every effort to provide a welcoming experience. They take time to say hello and make a guest feel welcome. The Room staff are so important as well. They do such a great job and provide a welcoming experience, clean room, clean bathroom, clean windows, a consistent comfortable experience when a person enters and returns to their room. All in all after one stay at this Best Western Facility will have you returning while visiting Winnipeg Manitoba Canada or passing through on Trans Canada Highway.
Stayed there for a family function. ... felt well rested in the morning, rooms have great air control. Hotel feels clean. Stayed there before , can easily give this place 5 ?????????? of how well I can rest there.
It is a decent hotel, the only draw back is that it is right next to a truck stop. It is close to restaurants and some shopping for groceries etc. It would be great for travelers who need to hit the road early in the morning, close to the highways, etc.
Was a full house for a hockey tournament weekend and still tons of room and very quiet. Managers and staff were great and the pool was excellent for the kids! Beds were comfy and was very affordable. Would stay again! Great stay as you can usually count on from Best Western :)

Thank you Marnie. Support like yours is so important to our staff.
Stayed here overnight on our way to Cuba. Wael was the evening customer service clerk. Did an excellent job friendly and courteous. Made sure our cab was called for morning pick up and confirmed for us. Great clean quiet room, and excellent breakfast. Will definitely stay again when needed for travelling and needing to stop near Winnipeg.
Nice hotel. We travelled with our granddaughters in between Christmas and New Year. The hotel has nice and spacious rooms and is very clean. We had requested a room on the ground floor- that was perfect! The kids had fun at the pool. They also serve an outstanding breakfast. The staff was polite and helpful. We had a good stay !
Very lovely hotel that is only two years old. Lovely front desk person, clean, comfortable rooms. Free breakfast with the usual items but a bit above a Holiday Inn Express or Hampton Inn. No restaurant on site but we ordered Chinese food from Yip Hong's (8th St. E) and it was delicious. We are travelling with our dog and unfortunately we had an adjoining room in which the family was a tad too noisy. We could not change rooms but eventually things were quiet. All in all, great hotel.
The staff are have always been friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and the beds are very comfortable. We always do a suite for the extra room with our family. Only dislike is there is no water pressure in the shower so it takes forever to wash your hair.
I love your hotel and would recommend every time. It is close to the perimeter and Unicity and various family and friends. The staff also is very understanding for those who have special needs such as I.
New Year's Eve was my oldests bday we usually celebrate by going to a hotel - this was a first at best western. Room was a double queen room- large enough for us to have cake presents and family time. I'm not sure that the beds were in fact queen size they seemed small. The pool was good - very chlorinated tho - our eyes were so sore after swimming. The umbrella sprinkler was not working which was a bummer. The kids enjoyed the slide and vortex. It was very busy being New Year's Eve and all. The bathroom in the swimming area could use a bit more attention to ensure it's cleanliness. Full breakfast included. It was alright- your typical continental breakfast with the addition to scrambled eggs and sausages and hash browns. Which were not all that great but it was breakfast! Waffles were yummy with different choices for toppings. And a yogurt bar to make your own parfait was neat. The rate for the room was a bit high but that's what I get for booking last minute I guess.
Staff is very friendly, very clean hotel. Super comfortable beds with spacious rooms. Pool and hot tub are well kept and the full serve hot breakfast is very good. Will definitely be staying here again.
We stay here EVERY time we are in Winnipeg. They are very accommodating with our large family group that we have. The pool, breakfast, staff, etc are all great. We will continue to stay here whenever we can in Winnipeg! Worth the extra drive to the other side of the city!
Clean rooms, friendly staff, breakfast was good. I always appreciate the use of plug in for cars when the weather is very cold. The staff was friendly despite it being holiday time and the hotel being busy with family gatherings in some of the public rooms.
Excellent hotel, size of rooms were good, breakfast was excellent. Did not like how work trucks and trucks with trailers parked sideways and took up 6-8 parking stalls. There is a spot for them and that's where they should be parking not right up close to the hotel.
Spent a Wednesday night prior to a trip to Cuba early the next morning, rather than travelling to the city much earlier. The kids had fun on the waterslide, the adults had plenty of area to sit and visit. We ordered pizzas in for dinner. The rooms were clean and,the beds very comfortable.
Had an issue with key coder when I arrived but they brought key to my room a short time later. Looks like the pool and tub were nice. Did not have time to try. 5 year old facility that has been well kept so far. Good job BW.
We have been able to stop here before. Have found it to meet our needs. Being a transport driver, my needs are not many. Nice and quiet for those not common hours of sleep. Pool is nice, just wish the hot tub was hotter.
This hotel is excellent for kids and business stays. The staff are very friendly and caring. I would highly recommend considering staying at the Best Western in Headingley for great value. From the hotel, access to all services are as easy as any downtown hotel.
Good hotel on West side of town not far from Airport Denny`s in Parking lot and Gas station, Internet was good and easy to connect Clean decent breakfast included, pool and hot tub Staff very nice and helpful exercise room could use free weight but other wise was good
The rooms are not only clean and comfortable but they are nicely presented. The bathrooms for example have white towels with one red towel to set things off - so elegant. Please see my pics. The hotel is quiet and the breakfast is excellent. We have been staying at BW all across Canada and this is one of the nicer ones so far!
Very spacious room with a comfortable bed and recliner chair. Breakfast was excellent with a variety of selection and tasty hot items. Convenient location on west edge of city. Good value for an enjoyable stay!
Our place to return and relax while we spent our days exploring the wonderful city of Winnipeg. The hotel was easy to find, check-in and check-out was efficient, there was even a place for us to plug in our electric car! The gracious breakfasts each morning got our days started off just right. The fitness center equipment was fairly easy to use and adequate for our light exercise needs. Having the flexibility of a refrigerator, coffee maker, and microwave right in the room was also a great help.
We decided to have a short staycation this fall. i.e ... staying in our home town kind of get away. We really enjoyed the water park and the huge selection of choices for breakfast. The internet was speedy. All in all a very nice stay. Best Western is always great and treats their customers very well.
My stay at Best Western Plus in Headingley, Manitoba was very good. got a good nights sleep and a good breakfast. Is close to a restaurant for a good supper when I arrived. Also, being a truck driver, you have a large parking area at Flying J next door.
This was our third stay at the Best Western in Headingley Manitoba and by far the best experience we had. It seems like there has been a change in staff and management; everyone was so much friendlier. The breakfast menu has been greatly improved from our last 2 visits. Look forward to our next stay in Headingley.
Best Western Plus is always a good bet. This was no exception. Great staff, great bed, and a breakfast which is worth eating. Wael at the front desk was helpful and accommodating from the beginning and they have the nicest luggage carts I've ever used. Rooms are spacious and quiet. One downfall is the constant smell of diesel from trucks running at the Flying J next door. Not a problem inside however. Have not noticed any noise concerns from the truckstop or the hiway. There is a Denny's next door so breakfast at 3am is just steps away. Easy access to and from the TransCanada hiway makes it a convenient place to stay.
Staff is very friendly. The area is beautiful. Property is beside the river, and has a walkway adjacent . The hotel offers a snack time around 5 pm which was a pleasant surprise and the breakfast was plentiful.The pool; area is great for families. There are plenty of shopping areas and restaurants close by, even within walking distance. Would stay again
I have stayed in Best Westerns for many years and have never found one this nice! It is so clean...and quiet comfortabler rooms...friendly staff....and excellent breakfasts ! Its been hard to find another one that compares !! I would highly recommend this hotel ! We even requested our favorite pet room upon returning and we got it ! Henry and Valerie Strong Sooke, BC
We enjoyed the room we had and the bed and pillows were super comfortable for us. Parking was large and always a spot available. the lobby and entrance were very clean. The TV was an issue that remained unresolved as we had at least 4 channels that showed "weak or scrambled signal" and when we mentioned it we were ignored. This included a local CTV channel which obviously was not off the grid for 4 days.
Friendly welcoming staff, good location on TCH. Excellent room decor, very comfortable bed and sitting area. Breakfast offering was well presented, plenty of room for guests to move about. Well worth staying here.
This is a very new facility. Has a large pool area with hot tub and water slide. Work out room is small but has a bike, elliptical and treadmill. Multi gym. No free weights. Breakfast area has lots of space and good food, surprisingly. Great beds and pillows. I travel a lot and these were the best nights sleep I've had in a hotel for a while. There is not much in the area, this place is right off the highway, on the edge of town. About ten minutes away is everything, though.
We stayed at the BW Plus in Headingley this week, twice. and both experiences were amazing. Staff was friendly, helpful and pleasant to talk with. The pool area is very nicely decored. They have a great small slide into the pool which our 6 year old son just loved. They have an area in the pool that is for sitting and relaxing and they also have a separate cloverleaf pool area that has a vortex that you can get a really good workout if you like. nice lounger chairs, and great ambiance. The breakfast was a hot breakfast with lots of options, very delicious. The staff was also ensuring that everything was topped up. The check in and out was very easeful and friendly staff. Great job.
We stayed at the BWPlus in Headingley on 9/25/2017. It was wonderful! The breakfast was great and they had glass coffee cups! The food was hot and good! Our room was large and the beds were comfortable! We used the fitness room and pool--both excellent. We drove downtown for the city tour at 10 AM. It was about a 25 minute drive. Quiet area.
This is the best eastern Western we have ever stayed at. The service from the from desk staff was exceptional. The room was comfortable and clean...well appointed as well as large. Great breakfast served here too...highly recommend this hotel because of the professionalism, help, and caring of the front desk!
Loved this hotel. Very comfortable room and bed. Well appointed. Laundry facilities available which was great while on the road. Breakfast was very good. Staff were friendly and helpful. Easy access to downtown Winnipeg as well.
Never a worry here, always consistent with service and quality. Adjoining shared parking lot has room for trailers. Check in was quick, desk staff offered perks to membership status which I was unaware of - nice touch! Great pool area for the kids. Lobby has a nice large sitting area if you need to wait for the rest of the your group. Dennys right next door.
Very nice hotel on edge of the city. great looking waterpark if you brought the family. Breakfast is nicer than most. Rooms are large and feel new and clean. Lots of parking.. Not many services within walking distance of hotel but some good dining options within a short drive.
Always a good place to stay, comfortable beds, excellent front desk staff, friendly staff in the breakfast room, quiet hallways at night. Extra perks being a club member are a nice touch, will definitely stay here again.
The hotel was easy to find. Great staff took care of my family. Enjoyed the stay and would stay here again when traveling. Very clean hotel. The breakfast bar was well stocked with good food. We enjoyed the treatment and had a good nights rest.
Great place to stay and great food choices on their continental breakfast. Internet was reliable and speed was great. Super Clean room.Friendly Staff and accommodating to customers. Definitely recommended when you are nearby.
Everything you expect from a Best Western! Prompt and friendly service and varied hot breakfast buffet. As always, appreciate the dog-friendly welcome package and amenities. If you walk down Camp Manitou Road there is a nice walking path through a newer subdivision . Great for stretching everyone's legs after a long day in the car.
Driving west through Canada, chances are you'll be stopping in Winnipeg. Just west of downtown, but perfectly located on highway 1 ( which will save you time in the morning when you continue your trip ) this hotel was better than expected. Does the job well and price was also competitive. Would recommend, except pool ( basically a kids water park ) and gym ( small and dated ) were a little disappointing. ( free parking and fast wifi was a plus )
I highly recommend this hotel whether you are visiting Winnipeg or passing through. The staff are all very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. The rooms are very comfortable and clean. There is a complimentary breakfast with many choices to choose from. There is a restaurant and gas bar across from it if you want a larger meal. There is easy access from the highway and the city is minutes away. We haven't used their service to the airport but will later in the fall and don't expect the service to be any different than what they provide in the hotel,excellent.
Was in Winnipeg for hockey out at the Bell MTS IcePlex and this hotel is very conveniently located. Room was nice and clean. Pillows left a little to be desired but overall a very good stay for the price and breakfast was included.
We stayed here for one night on our way to Riding Mountain National Park. The hotel is in a great location for those continuing on West. It is very clean and our room was quiet, clean and very spacious for a hotel room. The breakfast had a good selection and is enough to hold you over until lunch.
Checked in very late 1 am after along 12-14 hour drive. I was given a room beside the mechanical room, a compressor went off about every 45 minutes. I got "wonderful sleep" as you can imagine. When advised front desk staff the problem was not even acknowledged!!

Hello Collin, I have your business card that you had left upon check-out, and will be contacting you shortly. I do apologize that I was not able to get back to you earlier, however was on holidays and am back today. I do apologize regarding the issues you encountered, and look forward to speaking with you soon. Thank you, Daphne Petrakos General Manager
This is a lovely hotel on the edge of Winnipeg. It is both kid and pet friendly. It can be a bit noisy when filled with a youth sports team. Its popularity means that it is often fully booked, so if you are planning to stay here, book early so as to avoid disappointment.
Checked in at 3 AM paid $199, had to check out by 11 AM, could not get a late check out. Bed covers had stains all over them, not enough towels for 4 people. Checked on line later that day, rooms were going for $135. This place is rip off, total price gouging, look some place else to stay. There are better deals.
Daphne P, General Manager at Best Western Plus Winnipeg West, responded to this review
Hello Steve. I am very sorry to hear about the issues during your stay. As you may have heard, there was a large concert in town on the Thursday night you had stayed, which is why ours, and many other hotels in the city, had increased rates for that night. As the demand for rooms was less on Friday, the rate had lowered a little bit as well. I have sent you an email regarding this, and the other issues, and hope that we will be able to speak at some point this week. Thank you, Daphne Petrakos General Manager
This hotel once again received our family of 8 with open arms. Staff always friendly. Hot breakfast a favourite among my kids. The pool actually fun for kids and includes a shallow pool!! It is always a pleasure to stay here.
Love the best western....great place to stay with kids....good pool....great complimentary breakfast in the morning....very clean and the staff were very friendly and accomodating....a bit of a drive outside of the city but worth it....would stay again
I had a fantastic 2 night stay.Everything was very clean and the hotel was very quiet.The staff was very friendly.A small issue with a microwave was corrected in a very efficient time frame.The staff thanked me for staying with them many times.
We were able to use a work discount. Love that we didn't have to pay the extra tax b/c its outside the city. Still close enough to everything though! Great family friendly pool, waterslide, spray features. Varied cont. breakfast!
Happy to find a hotel that could accommodate our family of six at an affordable price. We had the double queen/sofa bed room and it was huge. Everything was clean and new. Kids enjoyed the pool which at its deepest is about 1.2 meters, has a slide/mini lazy river turnabout, spraypark functions. Free hot breakfast an added bonus.
It was my third time staying at this hotel. First two times (2 or 3 years ago) the place was great. This time, we checked in on a Saturday and found the bedcovers stained and dirty in a few different places (both queen beds). I called front desk and they came to look and said they'd get us a new room. We went to the new room and it was clean looking but had a musty odour. My family wanted to swim right away so I stayed in the room and opened the window to air it out. It didn't get any better. I took the filter out of the AC unit and it was dusty and smelly. I didn't want to complain again and have to move so I just washed it in the bathroom and sprayed a little perfume around the room hoping it would eventually subside, but no. We went out for dinner and came back to a smelly room. It's not the worst thing and I decided to go with it rather than complain again, but it kind of takes away from the overall experience. The front desk staff were nice, though. Maybe just need to review the housekeeping procedures.
Super comfortable and convenient while making the long trek back to Ontario! The pool and slide was definitely a highlight for my children after spending 12hrs in the car! Thanks for a great pit stop!
Excellent pool, excellent staff, clean, pets even got a special welcome treat. Highly recommend this hotel if you have children and pets. Breakfast was plenty and always staff cleaning and restocking.
If you have a pet and are going to Winnipeg, this is the place to stay! Very good space. Good breakfast, room, pool, and service. The hotel is modern, the beds were comfortable and the room décor was great. You could not ask for a more complete breakfast. Very delicious and there was constant care to make sure there was plenty. Location was prime, on the west side of the city and that was helpful to where we were going.
This hotel is awesome if you're travelling through Canada. It's right off ofHighway One, and very easy to find, as it is literally on the highway just outside Winnipeg West. The fact that there's a Denny's and a gas station right beside it is a huge plus. Clean rooms, not expensive and the staff are happy to help if you need anything. there's a great breakfast in the morning, included with your stay, and although the breakfast menu changes daily, there is a lot to have. I would definitely recommend this hotel, as it is right at the turn off for going to Ontario and on the road right into Winnipeg.
Great value. Nice rooms. Hot breakfast was a really great added value. The water park is great for children. Having Denny's right next to the hotel is a bonus. I would highly recommend this hotel if visiting Winnipeg.
Great to have clean rooms and good service on three day move from Alberta to Ontario with my daughter. On a slight negative the breakfast could be improved. Otherwise there were no other issues and we both enjoyed our stay.
The hotel service is fantastic every time i have ever stayed at this hotel & again this weekend they didn't disappoint . Location to sports facilities around Winnipeg is handy & continental brekfast offers lots of varierty
Friendly staff, welcoming atmosphere, kids enjoyed pool and water slide as well as high speed Internet. Many breakfast options that suited picky eaters. Would recommend this hotel for groups with children.
Great hotel to stay with your family or a team! Fantastic Breakfast, amazing pool, clean, Large rooms and a friendly staff! I would recommend to any team travelling to the city to play to stay here, close to wpg but no leisure tax on your rooms!! And easy to access!
pillows lumpy need bathroom night light language hard to understand breakfast was excellent but should watch how other customers handle the food. we watched a lady pick up every bagel or bread and smell each piece, not good for the appetite
We have stayed here for several years with our daughter's softball team. They make booking for a large group very easy and we are always welcomed by very friendly people. The hotel is always clean and comfortable. We wouldn't chose any other hotel.
The hotel had a great pool area to entertain kids as well as parents! Friendly staff, clean rooms. Breakfast offered a ton of variety of hot and cold foods! We would use Best Western Plus'es again in a heartbeat!
Nice Hotel, great pool with waterslide, rooms were fairly large and the beds were comfortable. Nice breakfast but needs some items diabetics can eat, such as sugarless jams etc. . Overall good value for the money We will stay there again.
This is an amazing hotel for families. We booked for one night as we passed through Manitoba on a long road trip and weren't expecting the extras like the swimming pool with a water slide and waterfall umbrella or a full complementary breakfast. We saw a lot of guests passing through the halls but were able to use the pool and enjoy breakfast without feeling crowded. The room was clean and well decorated. One of our littles is crawling and most of the room was nicely carpeted so we didn't worry too much about possible injuries. Staff was very friendly and polite.
My dad and I have been travelling from Ottawa to Alberta for the last few days, staying in many hotels and this was by far the best! Very clean, friendly people, beautiful hotel and pool area. Highly recommend
Best Hotel stay so far.Made stops in Medicine Hat Alberta,Drumheller Royal Tyrrell Museum ,Banff National ParkClimb Tunnel Mountain Summit.Visit Lake Louise.Stops at Kelowna visit wineries,tomorrow to Osoyoos then off to Langley.Final Destination Prince Rupert BC.Stopping in Vancouver,Victoria also flying to Queen Charlotte Islands for five days.Returning to Mississauga by July 22 2017
* - If you are traveling with kids, KEEP DRIVING. BEWARE that you will most likely be sharing the water slide and pool with non-registered hotel guests. Yes! The hotel management, in hopes of making MORE MONEY, opens the pool to birthday parties. When we complained about rude party-goers and unsafe conditions, we were brushed off. If you have kids, please, stay somewhere else. They just want your money and don't care about your concerns.
Daphne P, General Manager at Best Western Plus Winnipeg West, responded to this review
Hello Katie, I do apologize regarding the issues with pool parties during your stay. As mentioned to you previously, we have listened to your concerns and are currently re-evaluating our pool party policy as a result. Unfortunately, management was not made aware of this issue until after you had checked out, so we were not able to intervene with the rude party-goers on the Wednesday evening. I hope you had a chance to read and respond to the email I sent you. I will be on holidays soon and am hoping I will be able to resolve this with you sooner rather than later. Thank you, Daphne Petrakos General Manager
We stay here a lot and they have never let us down. The staff are friendly and very helpful, the breakfast is great, the pool is one of the best in town. My kids love this place and so do we! Would recommend for sure!
The check in service was friendly. The pool was nice and clean. The breakfast in the morning was amazing. There were lots of people there but the food was hot and the service was very friendly. I would definitely stay again.
Booked in last minute. Convenient to the highway and removed enough from town that's it's not busy in the area. Dennys restaurant and a gas station in the same parking lot. No issues with check-in. Unfortunately I was awakened before midnight by leaf blowers outside my window and heavy machinery cleaning the parking lot in prep for painting. Lots of noise and shouting. What a time to do it. I called the front desk twice and they said they would tell maintenance about but this didnt do anything. Terrible night. The room was nice as was the fitness centre. Great pool area with slide great for kids. Excellent breakfast with lots of variety day to day. Staff always cleaning or restocking. Very helpful especially with the kids. I asked the front desk if my room could be cleaned over the next 3 hours as i would be out. Came back and nothing had been done. Housekeeping could also use some improvement. Shampoos, towels and toilet paper in the room not replaced. Good place to stay but just needs a little improvement.
The place is very nice. The price reflects that as well, but you have to factor in the free breakfast, which cost us over $45 at McDonalds!! Nice location at a major junction just out of Winnipeg. We like to stay there even when shopping for a few days so we can buzz OUT of the city for a little quiet relief!!
Great hotel with great staff. Friendly, nice, great location. Close to everything just outside of the City of Winnipeg about 10 minutes away. Breakfast and Restaurant have great food. Bed are nice and comfy and hotel is nice and clean.
Stay here several times now. Great location. Very nice hotel inside and out. Limited food on site but there is a lot in area to order in. Amazing rooms, awesome beds, very spacious rooms always like staying here
Nice hotel for kids and adults, quick service, clean rooms, good breakfast. Close to MTS iceplex which is great for teams playing in Winnipeg hockey tournamets. Staff was accomdating for parents to hang out in common areas.
We liked this hotel very much by comparison to other Best Westerns. It seems to be well run with upscale decor and great amenities - a fantastic pool, with waterslide, lazy river, and a hot tub. The business centre had 4 computers. Throughout the hotel there was nice art, and attention has been paid to details. Our room was spacious and clean with nice lighting and the bed was comfortable. The breakfast area was well laid out and spacious. Although it is close to the highway, we didn't notice any road noise.
The beds at this hotel are sooo comfortable!!! I would just lay my head down and drift away! Staff were very friendly. Rooms were quiet with no disturbances. I have no qualms at recommending this hotel to anyone who would love to get away for some rest and relaxation.
Convenient location for where I needed to be in the city. A very professional, courteous and accommodating staff made my stay that much better. Breakfast was very good in the morning. If anything could improve then possibly the shower pressure and pool temperature but will definitely stay here again in the future.
Hope the receptionist are friendly. If the card is not working please don't be grumpy at all. It doesn't look good on the hotel. Atleast be professional. I just don't understand why is she not being friendly. Is she like that because we look so young. Thats discrimination, i just don't want to report about it because I am not that kind of person. She should do her job really good and she should be bring her professionalism at work. She shouldn't be like being a grumpy person. Hopefully she isn't like that in the other families as well.
I had requested late check-out when I booked the room due to an event I was attending. When I arrived at the hotel, the staff already knew and were very accommodating. The Staff was very courteous. Hotel is always clean. Location is just right. I love that they have the continental breakfast.
Excellent location for our purpose (Hockey). Hotel was clean, quiet and comfortable. Good breakfast (Perogies for breakfast?? Baked beans? It was interesting choices but they were good! Denny's right next door as well as a Flying J! Trucks coming and going all day and night but we did NOT hear a thing!! Very happy with our stay.
I was very happy with my choice to stay here. I flew from Edmonton and stayed in Winnipeg for one week. As I travel a lot with my job, I'm at many hotels. Typically, I have some sort of problem with appliances in my room or the amnesties etc.. everything was perfect. I could focus on my work and not how long it would take my shower to get hot. Thanks for the great stay. I'll be booking here again in a month or so.
This hotel is perfect. Unlike the newest B W near the airport. We will NEVER stay at that one again because of all the noise, drums, smoking in halls etc etc. We stayed there twice and both were very bad!!!
This was the third time we've stayed at this hotel and we really like it. The pool is perfect for little ones and the breakfast is decent. I also like you can use air miles to pay. I'm sure we'll be back!
The location is a little outside of Winnipeg but amenities are available if one has transportation. The pool and hot tub were working and well used by guests. The breakfast was very good and available for a good length of time. Rooms were clean and comfortable and the temperature was good. There is a Denny's restaurant next door to this establishment but we did not use as we had a bad experience during one other visit to the BW. I would recommend this hotel for a good stay. Our stay was for 5 nights.
Before arriving at the best western plus we contemplated upgrading to a suite to accommodate our family and a new infant. Upon arrival we were pleasantly surprised at the large size of the room. Even with a child's playpen, swing and stroller there still was plenty of room for the rest of our family. The bests were so comfortable I don't think I moved all night. The rooms are equipped with a fridge and microwave which was extremely convenient for families. There was some debris under the sitting chair that had not been cleaned and the top dresser drawer did not work well; but, overall the room was clean and in good working order. The continental breakfast had a variety;however the hot food was not all that hot and fresh. Those are our only 2 complaints of our stay. Overall I would rate this hotel very good. I would definetly stay here again.
checked in with a very large hockey team group. check in was fast and efficient, I called to make sure our room was ready as we arrived early. once got to hotel we checked in with room ready upon arrival. rooms are large, comfortable, and clean. had few issues with internet but do to amount of people staying at the hotel it was understandable. breakfast was great, good selection to choose from. we enjoyed our stay
Our stay was with a hockey tournament...all teams 10 years old and younger. Staff was excellent with the kids. Pool was great...rooms. Very clean..comfortable beds, fridge, microwave, in room coffee provided and good selection of food at complimentary breakfast. Staff was efficient, friendly and accomodating. Clean beds and bathrooms are our priority and this was surpassed. Pool area was excellent...hot tub, water slide and good sized pool.
Clean roomy great staff. Would definitely stay again and recommend this Best Western as a very comfortable place to stay. Beds and pillows were very comfy. Bathroom was spotless and lobby very welcoming along with the staff.
The hotel was clean and staff is great but the only the complaint I have which is a big if booking this hotel for the pool is they also book kids birthday parties which no room booking. I booked 3 rooms for my family and our little kids and when arrived it was great but within 2 hours the parties started. The pool was so over full it became a safety hazard for the kids. The pool permit from the province only allows 52 people in the pool area at one time. I counted 97 at one time at the hotel did nothing about it. I hope this hotel acknowledges this sooner than later because I would hate to see someone's child drown due to over populated pool before it is addressed. I will not be staying here again due to this life safety issue.
Stayed here for one night in April - great location next to the #1 highway and the perimeter highway. Tim Horton's and Denny's close by, and Polo Park is about 15 minutes away as well. Hotel is new and clean - pool area was a lot of fun for our daughter, hot tub was nice as well. The breakfast was a bit of a letdown - on this particular day (Wednesday) they just didn't have that much of a selection of items. Other than this - I would probably stay here again if I was in Winnipeg.
The room was very spacious for our family of 5. The pool was fantastic! My kids had a blast in the lazy river and on the water slide. The breakfast was great, there was a large variety, something for everyone.
We really enjoyed our stay at the Best Western in Winnipeg West. The hotel is right off the highway but we never heard any road noise at all in our room. Very new and modern looking with clean rooms. Check in was quick and easy and front desk staff were all friendly and helpful. We had a king suite which was a good size room. Breakfast was included and it was one of the nicest breakfasts we have had at a Best Western. Food was fresh and tasty. There was a place to make your own waffles. Breakfast area was small but adequate spacing the day we were there. We will be back again next time we are in the Winnipeg area.
room was clean, bed was ok, but room was hot even with the temperature turned down. Breakfast options were decent but limited. Would be nice to have a few more options on their breakfast selections. Good location
We are very pleased with the ease and accessibility off the perimeter. Sense of quiet even though close to a main highway. 10 minutes away from our destination in Winnipeg. Breakfast choices and quality of food is excellent.
Our Hockey team was playing out of town and commuted from Winnipeg West, we enjoyed the stay. The pool was good. Rooms were great. Very accessible to Shopping in Winnipeg. We look forward to staying there again next year
The hotel was clean and modern. The staff were all friendly and courteous and our requests were met right away. We didn't have to wait at all. The beds could have been a little more comfortable. Even thought the hotel was very busy all processes went smoothly and even the guests were happy.
Great, affordable, clean and fun place to stay! My daughter had a friend sleepover in the double queen suite and a Birthday pool party! Turned out to be a perfect day! Several of the parents of the kids who attended the party were very impressed with the Hotel and accommodations and are planning their next Birthday parties there!
Trip was highly enjoyable, loved the easy access to Winnipeg and surrounding area, also was nice being beside the Flying J for snacks for the hotel room! Would recommend this hotel to anyone who has plans to be in einnipeg but don't want the hustle and bustle of being down town
Great hotel with wonderful staff. The pool is perfect for younger children as there is no deep end. Wonderful selection for breakfast. Rooms are clean and location is great We stay at this hotel every year.
Hotel is clean and well kept. The bed was comfortable, although we found the pillows a bit firm and a bit too lofty. The room was comfortable and included both a fridge and microwave which was nice. The first night we had difficulty sleeping due to a high pitched whining noise coming from the fridge which would start and stop throughout the night. We reported this too the office and asked that it be repaired or replaced. Unfortunately that did not happen and we suffered through a second night. Mentioned it again to staff the following morning and they assured us it would be addressed, and it was. Our request for a later checkout was denied, which we found disappointing considering we endured two sleepless nights, which the clerk was aware of as she was present when we discussed it with the maintenance manager. The breakfast was impressive and varied. Lots of items to choose from. The location is very proximate to the MTS Iceplex which served us well.
Wow this hotel is just fantastic! Lovely breakfast with yummy waffles and delish eggs!!! The hot tub was so relaxing because the jets were so POWERFULL. The slide was super fun and I went fast but I hurt my elbow, but it was my fault not the slide's. Go to this hotel you will like it.
Excellent breakfast, entire hotel was clean was really well kept, didn't have a problem with my stay and very nice pool and fitness Center. Always helped me when I needed a place for my luggage or any inconvenience I had.
The food was Amazing and service was even better!!! I would recommend staying there over any other hotel. The service made the stay for myself and my team way more enjoyable. They did a great job! Thanks for the service!!
I am part of the Edge hockey team and the service was great. The breakfast buffet was awesome, fresh eggs, sausage, and pancakes every morning. The pool and hot tub area was very relaxing, and the cleaning service was very good, always enough towels and nicely made beds.
The service was amazing and the food. Would recommend to anyone staying in Winnipeg. The staff was very kind to us and changed it up everyday which was very nice. Thank so much for your hospitality was greatly appreciated.
Finally a hotel that treats it's Pet Clients as family members and not 2nd Class citizens. The hotel is very new but the rooms are a great size and comfortable beds. Very impressed. A good hot breakfast available. Coffee was not the best but a minor issue in such a good review.
Very well kept, modern, clean rooms and hotel. fridge, microwave. atm machine. Its out by horse track and mts iceplex. (not mts centre where jets play) We haven't used pool area but looks nice. it closes at 10. Very good breakfast with lots of options. Denny's nearby also. Other bars, restaurants, walmart within couple miles right on portage ave. easy parking as well. We stayed a couple times and will be staying again.
I stayed here for a business trip because the meetings were close by. But nothing else is. The hotel is far from downtown, out in the prairie, with absolutely nothing within reasonable walking distance. The breakfast was terrible with the food overcooked, tasteless, and completely unappetizing. Much better to buy a predictable breakfast at the Denny's next door. The large indoor pool defines the main floor/entrance area, but the smell of chlorine permeates the entire space and adjacent corridors. The only positive is that the actual room was spacious, clean, and comfortable. But the hotel is really only a place to sleep. If you want to visit Winnipeg, much better to go downtown.
This was our first stay at this hotel. And we will be back. A very pleasant experience - with a comfortable, spacious room, and a terrific hot breakfast. A convenient location, too - right off the TransCanada and next to a restaurant and a gas station. Loved the pool and hot tub.
Booked this for our group conference. Rooms were excellent, Meeting room was adequate. Breakfast was super with variety and presentation that went beyond expectations. Excellent assistance in setting up the conference.
The hotel is easily accessible on the west side of the city. Very large and clean room which was perfect for our family. Had a fridge and microwave which was also a nice benefit. The pool area was a little noisy as there was a kids b'day party going on but otherwise it was very nice. The breakfast is the really great thing about this hotel. It is first rate with a good selection and quality of items to choose from. We plan on coming back next time we're in Winnipeg.
This was one of the best hotels that we stayed at while travelling across the country. Everything about it was on the PLUS side. We would definitely recommend this hotel to all types of travelers. Location is perfect!
Stayed one night in a room with King size bed and a nice recliner. Bed was awesome. Very large room, quiet and clean. Pool area is nice but didn't use it. Breakfast was good. Denny's is a few steps away if you prefer.
This motel has a good location, but unfortunately it seems to be understaffed. The guy on the desk didn't speak very good English, and was overworked. The pool was a bit cool. The hot breakfast was sausage, no bacon. It is a step down from the Hampton.
Stayed here for 1 night passing thru with our 2 children and our dog and can't say enough great things about this hotel. The staff were super friendly, the rooms were great and the beds were super comfy. Kids loved the pool and breakfast in the morning was awesome. They even take pics of their pet guests and display them on a board by the front desk. A+++ Will definitely stay here again and I recommend to anyone staying in the area.
I love staying at this hotel. The staff is always pleasant and I always feel so welcome. The location is great and easy for me to get to any place I am going for work. The breakfast has a great variety of items. It is always clean.
Stayed one night in a king room. This is one of the finest Best Westerns that we have ever frequented. Room was perfect. Well appointed, spotlessly clean, very good bed. We did not use the pool but it looked very nice. There was a slide and a fountain in the middle of the pool. Breakfast was hot. Good selection. Desk person was first rate and made checking in a snap.
Though outside the city of Winnipeg, It is an easy drive to almost anywhere in the city. Staff are friendly and the pool a blast. Though this was a single night stay, we have stayed here for a week on other visits to Winnipeg and are quite happy with the level of service and their commitment to keep the hotel modern. The hotel is popular with groups and weekends can get a bit noisy with lots of youth running around the halls.
Very comfortable hotel. Nice beds, clean rooms. The location works for me as I can jump on the perimeter highway to get where I'm going. Good food for breakfast with a nice variety. Brenda serving breakfast awesome! Nothing like a smiling face first thing in the morning.
Slap bang on TCH but just outside the hustle and bustle of the city, this hotel is in a great location, though the adjacent truck stop does generate a bit of background noise. The public areas are modern and tasteful, the room was very big and pleasantly furnished and decorated. Everywhere was clean including the bathroom which had lots of space on the vanity unit for ones personal items. Staff were helpful and courteous and when our bathroom lights fused during the evening we were immediately moved to another room without any hassle. Breakfast was a slightly disappointing - no problem with the food, but we find it sad that a good quality hotel uses paper bowls & plates and plastic cutlery.
Very pleased with this hotel! Pool & fitness center very nice. Breakfast was amazing!! All staff very friendly! Suites are very nice and spacious! Clean hotel. Would definitely recommend and stay again!
Our yearly visit to Winnipeg for our family included 2 3 month old puppies this time. Our stay with them was fabulous. Everyone treated my family with professionalism and the puppies loved the attention. I have always enjoyed our time in the hotel and will return again.
Seven folks had 2 rooms and for some reason the price was different per room and they were identical. I paid for both on my credit card and never noticed the price until I got home. With 2 beds in each, why would it matter how many were there plus there was a 3 year old and a 5 month old included.
Very clean and comfortable. Room was very nice and bathroom was spotless. Pool was great. Staff were friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend. Stayed here 3 years ago and it's definitely been well maintained. Looks fantastic.
Lovely hotel. Comfortable room and bed, clean, friendly staff, decent breakfast. Like that there was a comfy chair with its own light for reading. Will definitely stay st it again. It's nice to stay at a moderately priced hotel that isn't in need of repair.
A fantastic hotel. The staff was pleasant and pleasurable. The pool and fitness areas were well maintained. The rooms were clean, spacious and comfortable. The wifi quality was very good as well. My only negative was the quality of the continental breakfast. The selection was good, but the food quality really needs to be improved.
Good hotel but there is little to do in the immediate area that is within walking distance. There is a Dennys and a gas bar but if you would like a nice meal with some variety you have to drive into Winnipeg. The morning breakfast however was out of this world.
We booked this hotel in particular for three reasons: 1 - because of the BW rewards program 2 - because of the pillowtop beds - I thought they'd be the same as the Brandon BWPlus 3 - saltwater pool We benefitted from the rewards program, of course, and kids liked the saltwater pool. However, the beds (although they ARE pillowtop) aren't very "squishy"; you don't sink in like the Brandon beds. This was important to me because of some joint issues that make sleeping on a firm surface very uncomfortable. My two kids & husband did not find the beds uncomfortable so I'm suggesting that only if you rely on deep cushioning comfort, would you find them uncomfortable. The hotel is clean, other furniture is comfortable, good temperature control, lots of handy items to purchase at lobby (e.g., frozen foods, snacks, drinks, etc). Nice quiet sleep at night. Staff is all friendly & helpful. Breakfast is a little hit & miss, however, there are many items to choose from, so you will find something you like. Waffle maker could use replacing - the teflon is coming loose. Otherwise, excellent experience.
We stayed here a night. The hotel is pretty good and meets expectations. It is right on the highway. The rooms are spacious and recently renovated. The breakfast lady is very nice and ready to accommodate one's dietary restrictions.
Was hoping to try it out, but there were a lot of young families with children staying while we were there. The pool area looked nice albeit a bit small. Business center was nice and easily accessible. Breakfast area was small but they did have an overflow room. Breakfast staff kept up with the large crowds. Rooms were comfortable. Motel is pretty far out if you're spending time in Winnipeg.
We almost always stay at a hotel with a pool. My wife likes to swim laps. This hotel's pool is excellent for kids, but not very good for adults. The pool may prevent us from ever staying here again. Other than that it rates a 10 out of 10.
I stayed here for three nights with my mom, sister and niece and nephew. It was clean, the room was great, and the location was great. The kids loved the small pool and waterslide, and we all enjoyed the complimentary breakfast each morning.
We are currently staying here for 11 nights. Accommodations are excellent - spotlessly clean from the efforts of s very good housekeeping team. The hot and cold breakfast is outstanding - this is why we picked this hotel over the BW at the airport. The only criticism would be that some hot items were cold. The management should improve the warming trays. The pool is very nice and perfect for families with kids. For us seniors, not so much. It would be nice if the hotel had a "quiet hour" in the later evening where all the waterfalls/slide are turned off. I do not like swimming in a "maelstrom". However, it is not a deal-breaker.
We booked for three nights, arrived late last night and slept "like the dead." The room is quiet and the A/C works flawlessly. King size bed is very comfortable. I was a little concerned that there is a large truck stop adjacent to the property, but there was no smell or noise from those rigs idling all night. I'm not much of a breakfast person, but my wife enjoyed it. I was content that the coffee was strong and hot and the juice was cold and fresh. Water is very soft and the lather was fantastic. Low flow shower head was a bit vapid. Few kids in the pool area, child sized water slide as well. Probably check it out tonight I wouldn't want to stay here without a vehicle. It's very close to Winnipeg, but I wouldn't want to walk in and doubt there is bus service. It's a "pet friendly hotel" and there is good space for "the walk."
I travel once a month to Winnipeg and always stay here. The location is right off the highway so easy to get in and get out. The staff are great. The rooms are always clean and breakfast is all you need to get back on the road. This hotel is great for work or pleasure. There is no noise at night so get some sleep and enjoy your next day. Cheers.
This is a new hotel on the transcanada highway on the western outskirts of Winnipeg. Good for attractions like zoo. Clean hotel with well lit parking. Staff were friendly and helpful. Room was cool and temperature easy to control which was good after baking in +30. Bed was comfortable with nice pillows. Hotel was quiet and bathroom very clean. Good value for money with buffet type breakfast. Certainly recommended as a good place for an overnight stay.
Was here for 4 days. Excellent location just outside the city near the Perimeter Hwy and Trans Canada. Gas and restaurant next door. Strong smell of chlorine when you enter coming from the pool, but not too bad. Areas are signed well and clean, modern décor. Excellent rooms, but could use more lighting in the bathrooms. Continental breakfast had a great selection with both hot and cold selections. Lobby also has some microwavable and frozen selections. Highly recommend this hotel for those staying in Wpg.
This is a nice, new, comfortable and quiet hotel. Also of note was the quiet air conditioning in the room. We enjoyed our stay and were impressed in general. But there were a couple issues: we found the lighting very dark in the room, especially in the bathroom. We also found the water pressure in the shower terribly low - they're trying to conserve water, obviously, with a low pressure shower head, but as a man with short hair I could hardly wash shampoo out of my hair (I can't imagine what someone with long hair would do)!
Highly recommend this stopover if passing through Winnipeg. Located slightly west of downtown it is a perfect rest stop if you don't want to be right in the city. Hotel is modern, looks new from outside and in. Rooms are comfortable, clean and very updated. This has been our best lodging experience on our travels this far.
Location: This hotel was perfect for us - we were not in the area to visit Winnipeg but were just passing through. We picked it based on the location knowing it was on the side of the highway. Breakfast: the breakfast choices were very good - many hot items and pretty much anything else anyone might want for breakfast. The two women who were managing the breakfast area were very friendly and kept everything organized and nicely presented.
This relatively new hotel is located just west of the Winnipeg bypass, which was great as we returned from BC and were heading home. Clean well appointed rooms, quiet and great hot breakfast. Everything a traveler needs! Pet friendly too!
the room I was in was clean, and updated, made you feel appreciated. Staff were friendly and accommodating. easy to get to from the highway. although 20 mins from the airport this hotel was worth the extra distance compared to others I have stayed at and paid more for.
On our way to ont to see my grandaughter and stayed here at this hotel. Just for one night but had the best relax full sleep then I had in years. Everything was great breakfast was really good the staff were perfect and always there to help you out.the rooms were clean and bright. Hey pick the best western and you will not be sorry. They are great
we stayed here the June 24th weekend, my daughter competed in the fun fest at the red river ex, and we got a to stay at the best western. this hotel i newer, the rooms are huge, clean and very comfortable beds. the front desk is fast and friendly the hotel itself is very clean, and the staff is helpful, kind, and quick. the pool area is nice and clean, although we found it to be salty, but you know it was clean. the whole hotel seems to be in excellent condition, the Denny's nest door is great and also the flying J is in the same parking lot. they also have a restaurant i would stay here again for sure. the pool are has a slide so kids will have fun. the price is reasonable as well. and after seeing the size of the room i would say it was a deal.
Stayed here for a few nights in between a long drive. We got a great deal on the room and were upgraded to a suite. Hotel was very clean and close to a Denny's and Tim Horton's. We also appreciated how close to the highway it was, although some may find it noisy. We would definitely stay here again.
This is our second visit and the first was phenomenal so we thought this time would be too. But we had some issues. Firstly our toilet was plugged from the moment we used it (and no it wasn't us). They brought us a plunger which did nothing. They couldn't get someone in until much later so we had to move rooms. I will so they were efficient with the move and we got an identical room on a different floor. BW seems to have something against normal size towels (never mind for large people like me who should know to bring their own..) and being able to block light in the rooms. Do they have something against curtains you can close and bath sheets for the larger population who need them? Tying two towels together to walk up from the pool seemed excessive but you do what you gotta do. The room was delightful, clean and comfy. Breakfast was great, clean, stocked and not crowded. Checking in was a breeze, I have yet to check out. Wed stay here again but not without bringing my own towels (why should I have to though?) and taking a blanket to the window..
Nice place. Clean. But don't expect quality room service. 2 of 3 mornings no one came to clean the room and provide new towels. Front desk didn't have a clue on how to handle when I called them. It was quite disappointing, considering that the place was nearly twice as expensive as hotel down the road. Find a better place to stay.
When traveling with pets, it is always a challenge to find a hotel that not only welcomes you and your pet, but doesn't stick you in a crappy room and also charge some stupid pet fee (that they say is for extra cleaning). This hotel not only welcomes pets, but will take their picture and display it on a bulletin board in the lobby. Plus - you get a nice room. I highly recommend this hotel if you are in Winnipeg. Great breakfast too.
We have thoroughly enjoyed our stays at this hotel. It is always clean and beautiful. The staff are excellent. The pool is awesome and fun. AND they have rooms to accommodate a larger family WITHOUT splitting us up into 2 rooms!!!!
in addition to the ease of access off the perimeter in Winnipeg, the room was very clean, the free breakfast was excellent. Will definitely return on our visit. My husband found the mattress a little soft, but I had a good sleep.
We had a group (16 rooms) plus a hospitality suite during our stay. The staff were very helpful. The hotel is new and kept in great condition. They were professionals and accommodating to our group. If you have a large group, I highly recommend the hospitality suite. It is a very good value.
Check in was fast and efficient. Rooms had lots of room and had nice beds. The hot breakfast was wonderful. We had a big family gathering and used the overflow room so we could all have breakfast together. Swimming pool and slide were nice for the kids. Check out was fast and efficient. Would stay here again!
PROS: Very clean, well presented , great decor. Loved the king suite we stayed in, great bed and pillows, Very nice staff. CONS: no plugins beside each side of the bed for electronics, water pressure was not good, and the bathroom is very small almost to the point that when you open the door it hits the bathroom toilet Would defiantly stay again since the cons are really nothing. Thanks!
Had a very good stay here with Family in January. Great pool area and business center. The rooms are very clean and dont use the damn swipe cards for entry, just put up to RFID and boom. Good size rooms with Kitchenettes and seperate Bedrooms if need be. Large TVs. Only complaint I had is I had a note from Housekeeping Manager to stop smoking in my room or else I will be charged 250 or whatever. This place is close to a very large truck stop and when I stayed there I open my windows in my room every time at every hotel, well the truck stop outside my window blew dieslel smell into the room as I forgot to close before my meetings and came back to that. It also could have been the lighters in my room as I need them for torches at work, but either way never smoked a cigarette in my room because I wouldnt even know how to do it as I have never smoked!!! That made me quite unhappy, but overall that coulld be overlooked.
We had travelled all the way across the prairies and all we wanted was a relaxing place. Unfortunately, although we had requested ground floor room, we had an upper pool view room, which, with no windows to the outside made it very dark and because there was a hockey tournament going on, there was a lot of noise in the pool. Having done a day of hard driving, the last thing we want to do is get in the car and drive to a restaurant for dinner. We had to drive a couple of kilometres as there was only a Denny;s nearby. We also would have liked to look at TV after dinner, but the guide showed only a meagre number of channels working: Hotel channel; TV Guide; on 10 an American channel; Global News; three more channels; Finally a Canadian channel CTV, but it was scrambled and we could not view it; then CBC; then about four other nondescript channels; CBC News Network and CTV News Channel. In all, about two dozen channels. The deplorable access to Canadian channels was appalling; surely here in Canada, they should be listed among the very first. OK, Global was up near the front. Instead, American channels were listed first. I know the site is close to the USA border, but that should not determine which channels come first. Breakfast was very average and there was no bacon. Nor hard boiled eggs .I believe this was the hotel at which there were no scrambled eggs either, only some sort of omelette, although I may be wrong there. I go to a hotel to relax after a day of work or travel. I expect it to suit my requirements. This hotel did not. So many hotels; so many other good hotels. Should hotel management opt to review this review, they should also look at my other near 200 reviews and only two others (the ABBA museum in Stockholm and another hotel in the USA) rated as badly as this one.
Wonderful location just on the outskirts of Winnipeg. Clean hotel and room. Kids had fun at the pool. Staff were very friendly and approachable. I wish more hotels had option of cooktop and full fridge like this one. Already planning to stay again.
We stayed in the Best Western Plus Headingly for about 3 months, while our house was being renovated. The hotel is spotless, the staff is awesome, and the pool and water slide are amazing! We had a 7 year old, a 6 year old, and a 2 year old with us. They had a terrific experience! And, as a bonus, they have special pet friendly floors! I would recommend this hotel to everyone. 5 STARS!
Everything at this property is Five Star... Rooms were very clean and comfortable. Front desk was nothing but helpful Breakfast and breakfast staff were excellent. I will most certainly stay there again, when in Winnipeg, and would strongly encourage all to do the same. This property is excellent
After being on the go since early morning and driving for an afternoon, it was wonderful to return to this hotel where I had previously stayed with my family on a few occasions. Though the pool is a little cool, after a few minutes of gradually introducing myself to the water, I was able to get in and swim comfortably. The breakfast selection was terrific, as usual, and the beds were as comfortable as any bed could be if not sleeping in my own bed. I particularly enjoy this hotel because of its location. It is only a few minutes away from Walmart, restaurants and other business establishments, yet is on the western outskirts of the city in a quiet location. It is a perfect hotel to stay in if you are planning to head west the next day and have no desire to fight with city traffic.
I was very impressed the moment I stepped into the lobby, great check in staff. When I got the room they were very nicely decorated and very clean. Took my kids to the poll and it was the best pool area when have experienced. Beds are so comfortable, I would recommend this hotel to anyone!!
Really enjoyed our stay again. First we were worried since our floor seemed quite full, but to our surprise we were in for a good nights rest. In the morning we were treated to a nice breakfast. It was very busy in the breakfast room, but they kept up with replenishing all the different items. Great job. We will be back for sure.
We are still currently at this hotel. Family loves the proximity to everything. Makes visiting Winnipeg landmarks easy. Amenities in building are good, but have room for improvement. For example, the bathroom layout is terrible. If you are at the sink, the door must be closed.. The door opens into the toilet too. Also, in the pool area, the floors are very slick. Saw several kids, including my own, wipe out on the pool deck. I slid myself just walking. As for breakfast, variety of food is good, however, quality is poor at best. Hot foods are cold, supplies were low. OJ was watered down bc juice needed replaced. On the positive note, rooms were comfortable and clean. Cleaners came in every day to make our beds and change trash. Do wish they'd vacuum though. (due to sand from roads on shoes) All and all good stay here. Especially for those staying with children.
What a wonderful hotel. Great pool for kids, hotel is so clean. We will definitely stay at this hotel again in future. Lots of selection for breakfast and they let my daughter swim even after we checked out of our room.
We were here a few years ago and weren't so empresses but gave it another chance, glad we did. We had a king suite, separate bedroom with tv , living room full kitchen stove top toaster dishes,sink to wash dishes. Everything was excellent. Pool floor was not slippery like last time we were there and the chlorine levels were much lower as last time we couldn't breath in the pool area. Nice to see the complains were fixed. Nice water slide and fountains for kids but not much space for adult swimming, more of a kids pool. Hot tub is small so if kids are playing in it now place to relax. We went early morning. It would be very nice to have adult time in pool as so many children are in the pool in the day and evening. 10 00 pm, is a little early to close so 10 to 11 would be very appreciated by many adults I'm sure. Small suggestion for the kitchen a bigger garbage can would be nice as we filled it very quickly , the toaster was only working on one side and not all cutlery was there, but ever all excellent and very clean modern hotel......close to Denny's restaurant.
It was a very relaxed stay, very quiet, swimming pool/hot tub was fun. Outside of the city, but close enough for shopping and pleasure. A good place to break away from home. Service was excellent and I enjoy always the good stuffed breakfast, with the different flavors of waffles. Kitchen-Service filled up and cleaned up right away and is very friendly.
I expect more when I stay at a Best Western. This hotel fell well short of this standard. Having to drive through the Flying J to even get to the hotel, a sloppy lobby which could use a more friendly ambience and more prompt service, accessibility to electrical outlet at the bedside, an non-understandable room temperature control system, and a better breakfast system are all things which require attention to make this a better place to stay. Don't stay here if you have like a stay at another Best Western - there is simply no comparison.
Though just outside the city of Winnipeg, it is a very short drive to restaurants and shopping. The rooms are clean and the staff very helpful and friendly. My only caution is that this seems to be a very popular hotel and on the weekend there are a lot of youths using the wonderous pool facilities and acting like children (noisy).
We were surprised that this hotel on western outskirts of Winnipeg was absolutely beautiful. The courtesy and ambience was very professional and rooms were awesome. The hotel will be on my list of places to stay in Winnipeg
Very clean new hotel. Beds extremely comfortable. Included breakfast featured make your own waffles (2 types), hot eggs, bacon, bread choices, yogurt and so much more. Did not get to try pool, waterslide or hot tub but the area looked very enjoyable.
We enjoyed our stay here. The breakfast was always good with a variety of hot and cold food every day. Nice computer area, pool and hot tub. Everything is clean and the rooms were very nice. Comfortable beds. Thanks for making our stay a great one!
Comfortable and large rooms. Wonderful pool area and great choices of hot and cold breakfast selections. Staff is always friendly and we have stayed here multiple times. Great location when you are overnighting in Winnipeg and you can hop on the perimeter and head out of town first thing in the morning.
I stayed here for 3 nights in February while I was in town for a family situation and therefore had to book at the last minute. I got a good deal on Priceline. I stayed here alone. I like a good pro/con list so here you go! Pros • Very well priced in comparison to all those around – I did my research with many search engines • It seems like it's out of the way because its across the perimeter but it's like two blocks on the other side so it wasn't far • Very friendly staff • Very kid friendly…kids everywhere. I think they outnumbered the adults • The pool looked cool and kids seemed to love it • Room had both a small fridge, coffee maker and a microwave • Top floor was pretty quiet but kids were running up and down the halls. Not the hotels fault, that was parents who just had enough! • Wifi was great, never had a problem • Free Breakfast is always nice. It was your typical hotel breakfast with hot food not overly hot, but cereal, toast, waffles etc are a bonus • Television fully loaded with channels. • Great temperature control in the room • Room was a good size, I had 2 queens and there was room for luggage. Had a closet and a desk too • Car plugins are in the parking lot. Coming from BC, I thought that was great. Maybe that's normal everywhere in Winnipeg! Cons • The shower, mine anyway, was quite weak. If you are a power shower type of person, this could be a deal breaker • The parking lot always seemed packed, but there is another lot around back if you want to brace the extra few steps in -30 degrees! • With the kids everywhere, it was quite loud come 7:30am. I slept with earplugs which definitely helped. So way more pros than cons. I'd stay here again, hopefully never in February.
My husband and I went for a spur of the moment over night for Valentine's Day. When we arrived there was no one at the front desk for almost 10 mins. We ordered a king size bed room and we had a confirmation number they had it. We booked it on line. They said they were out and put us in a room with 2 queen size beds. Lots of families were there which is fine but the parents were not watching their kids a lot of the time. They were running up and down the halls yelling and playing on the carpet in the halls. This went on until almost 11 pm. The people across the hall had their door propped open do we could hear them in their room. Could not see any staff around dealing with this issue. This is supposed to be a hotel not a zoo. Not impressed at all.
Lovely place great swimming pool for kids...clean room comfortable bed and great staff very friendly ..good morning breakfast included will stay there again fully booked due to snowstorm but was very quiet ...pool was busy with kids it was great
When I stay on business I always look for a Best Western. The friendly staff and clean rooms are almost always a guarantee! They always go out of their way to ensure I am satisfied with my stay! Headingley is a nice hotel with very friendly staff that is always very accommodating! Being on the edge of Winnipeg it makes for an easy commute to anywhere I need to be in the area. I will stay again!
great value and service....... exceptional staff always clean and welcoming a real pleasure. would highly recommend and would definetely stay there again. I have stayed there previously because of medical issues and the staff went out of there way to help with luggage etc.
Disappointed that we tried this hotel for New Years. Pool was shallow , and water was cold. The temperature in the pool area was so hot that most of us felt unwell. They don't allow drinks nor any snacks In pool area, very disappointed with this. Therefore the party was in rooms and in hallways till wee hours as the pool area was so restricted . Costed an extra 20$ a night for our dog which was double the last dog friendly hotel, yet nothing for the dog at all. We scrambled for dishes as nothing was supplied other than an extra fee. Only compliment was the great continental breakfast and nice room. Entire hotel temperature was uncomfortably hot, won't be going back, don't recommend pool unless you children are under 7 years old , they won't be swimming however walking around the pool.??
We've stayed here several times and have enjoyed it every time. They have great staff, the breakfast is good, the kids LOVE the pool and the rooms are restful. Great place to stay and we will for sure be staying here again.
nicely done,great staff,,denny,s right next door within easy walking distance,,staff were extremely helpful,,easy to find ,,just outside the city limits but then again that's why I picked it,,close to main entrance ( portage ave) on highway #1 ,,timmies just down the road .will stay again
I was really impressed with this hotel and I will be back - Great room - spotless - outstanding coffee - awesome breakfast offerings included in price. Free wifi.Home made cookies from the staff was a nice touch for Christmas. The bed was the best! I was overlooking the parking lot but the room was well insulated for sound.
Stayed for 6 nights, loved having a kitchen to use in the room! Great stay, very helpful staff! The computer Center was in a great place to use as the kids could swim and I could use the computer! Would stay again!
Bed was nice with extra pillows. Quiet room. Enjoyed pool and hot tub and water slide. Staff friendly Nice to have breakfast choices at no extra cost. At edge of city so not close to many things but was OK for our needs. Can walk to Dennys and store.
We stay here every time I fly in to Winnipeg as it is fairly close to the airport. My grandchildren love the pool and waterslide as well as the hot tub. This last time we had a mini suite, no separate bedroom but a pullout couch as well as two comfy beds with 2 tvs. There was lots of extra room for the kids to play. The hotel is also pet friendly which we appreciated as my daughter's westie is diabetic and needs to travel with her. There are lots of choices for breakfast tho they were having some trouble with waffle makers. There are both large waffles and mini ones so great for kids, with lots of special toppings like strawberries and whipped cream! Beds are comfy and hotel quiet, great staff! Would highly recommend!
This was not my first stay at this location and it won't be my last. I will continue to stay at this location as long a room is available. Great room, great rate, great staff. The pool area is a good size and the slide fun for the kids. The breakfast has a pretty good selection of hot and cold choices. The staff are super friendly. This is a great place to stay.
My family stayed here while in Winnipeg for a concert. The hotel was great. The friendly staff greeted you as you arrived and were eager to help with any requests. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The pool was great, we enjoyed the water slide, and the vortex. The Hotel was located close to other amenities that travelers would require like a service station and restaurant. I would recommend this hotel and look forward to staying there again.
stayed one night here and two nights in west kelowna at best western both were excellent and i would stay there again at either of these. good location for winnipeg as on TC 1 but not good dining option unless you drive somewhere.
We booked a suite, under the impression that this hotel understood the definition of a suite (not a couch and bed in the same room), the floor in the pool area is incredibly slippery and dangerous, the water is freezing, the staff make no effort to help with any requests.

Hello Carolyn J, Thank you very much for letting us know about your stay. I'm sorry to hear that you were dissatisfied with the room, pool, and service. I do understand your frustration expecting a Suite with two separate rooms, and not receiving that. The room type you stayed in is considered a "Junior Suite", which more often than not do not have separation between the living space and the bedroom. However, online there is no way to make this distinction, as Junior Suites are still considered Suites. We are looking into the slippery pool floor, as we have just had it re-gripped and this should not be an issue. We are currently in contact with the company who applies this grip, and he should be coming out soon to take a look. I am also sorry to hear that you did not receive the level of service that most people have come to know us for. Generally, our staff always try their hardest to help out with any requests, and I will be sure to talk to the staff members working while you were with us to see what happened while you here. If there is anything else you'd like to discuss, please do not hesitate to contact me at (204)594-2201. Thank you, Daphne Petrakos General Manager
This Best Western Hotel is new and clean. Staff was great. The bed was awesome and I had a wonderful sleep. Breakfast was just okay. Check in and out was done very promptly. I would definitely stay at this property again. Close to MTS Iceplex and many restaurants.

Hello Andrew B, Thank you very much for your thoughts on our property. I'm happy to hear you had a great sleep with us. We've actually had people ask us where we got our beds, so they can go get the exact same kind for their homes! We can't wait to welcome you back next time you're in the area. Thank you, Daphne Petrakos General Manager
I've stayed at this hotel twice now, and have to say I was really impressed. King bed w/tv on the dresser, sitting area with a couch (which turns into a hide-a-bed if needed), table and another tv, Nice bathroom and jetted tub. This hotel is clean, and has a very nice continental breakfast. They have the usual plus sausage and eggs. Another welcome touch was the Keurig's in the rooms. This hotel is only minutes from Winnipeg and shopping. I would definitely recommend this hotel, and will definitely be back. This is not a luxury hotel, but in my mind, it is definitely above the norm.
Nice property with pool and waterslide. Excellent breakfast. Great location when passing through Winnipeg.Stayed here on our way home on vacation from US. Used the hot tub to loosen up our muscles after a long day of travel.
My husband is a truck driver so we appreciate the special rate for truckers. It is very handy to the Flying J truck stop and on the edge of the city. the room was clean and the beds comfortable. We did not have time to enjoy the pool, unfortunatley.
Nice hotel, great well kept pool, breakfast bar is nice however my son is peanut allergic and it was not to tidy and clean (open peanut butter wrappers left on tables and counter). Rooms are large and clean king bed is not the most comfortable (Hiltons are better). I think the price if you get it online is alright but not cheap. Staff is nice and helpful, location is out of city limits but I feel my vehicle is safer here than in the city. I will stay here again if I get a good rate.
This is a great place to stay! beds are super comfy, good size rooms, very clean, pool very nice perfect for kids! staff were all very nice. It is a great location easy to get to. We were there for a cat show which was at the race track, it took us 2 minutes to get there! gas station and Dennys right beside it. Our 7 year old loved the pool, slide and we enjoyed the hot tub. The breakfast area was roomy and had a lot of choices. Bonus is having the keureg in the room!!
Hi, We stayed here for one night on our way through to Alberta. It is brand new and very clean. Clean is very important and we felt very comfortable here. The employees were very nice and very helpful. We would definitely stay here again. One little problem we had was: we were told that breakfast was at 6:00. We wanted an early start as we had a long trip that day. We had stayed at other BWplus along the way. They had the same breakfast menu. So I wanted waffles and bacon. We got downstairs at 6:02. No waffles. No bacon. Just eggs and sausage. It looked like he kitchen was set up for more but nothing was there. So being dissappointed I just had toast and fruit. About 6:12 the waffles were available. Too late for me. Then at 6:20 the bacon came out. Nope, too late for me. If I'm told that breakfast is at 6:00 I expect everything to be out for people that need to be out early. Not in bits and pieces as the server decides to put them out. Every other place when they say that breakfast is at a certain time then everything is ready at that certain time. So we were very upset with kitchen service but the rest of the employees were very nice and helpful.
This hotel location is very convenient! A beautiful hotel with very friendly staff. The rooms were amazing and the breakfast had good choices. The coffee was excellent and the pool was a great place to have some fun (Kids would love this pool). If I am ever in Manitoba again, I will definitely be staying at this hotel!
Good location while on the road. Convenient and easy to access. Although close to the highway, room are quiet. Beds are good but could be a little more firm in my opinion. Excellent value for the price to spend one night while in transit.
Had a great time on the water slide. Lovely, convenient pet friendly room. The room was very clean. Internet worked well. Enjoyed our stay. We were running late and staff let us stay a little longer. Thanks.
First time we stayed in this hotel. It's location is not convenient when you want to go shopping in the city or head downtown, but if you are planning on heading out west first thing in the morning, it is ideal! I booked it because of that reason and to try out the pool (well, my 7 year old daughter is) and we liked the hotel. It is fairly new, well organized and very clean! And....she loved the pool! We will be going back for sure.
Stayed here one overnight while driving east and found it to be ok. The room and the overall hotel were clean, staff were friendly, easy to get to off the Trans Canada Highway 1, lots of parking. It was quiet and has a basic free light breakfast. There is also a Denny's right next door. I would stay again.
Very friendly service at check in, nice clean and quiet room to just relax and have a good night sleep. Enjoyed a great breakfast to start the day right and continued our journey. We'll be back here for sure. Keep up the great job!
