    « Best hotel experience »

    If you are in the Calgary area or at least staying in a hotel in the east end I suggest an 30 minute drive to Strathmore. Why? Best Western Strathmore offers excellent service and the hotel is great value. An excellent hot tub and swimming pool and the staff are par excellence. I stay for $100 and I think it is the best value in the area.

    « Passing through BC to Manitoba »

    Through the Rockies in credible drive as always even Big Horn sheep Super moon over Calgary Now resting in this very comfortable motel and town Great local just odd highway I was able to get an excellent meal and take out from the Roadhouse with in a block So could grab a wine too in same complex Feet up comfortable All close Relaxing for next leg

    « Decent Hotel »

    This Best Western is what you'd expect to find in a small town. Nothing fancy but it's clean, people are nice, has a pool/hot tub, and it's easy to find. I would recommend if you want decent rates and clean rooms.

    « Experience excellence in Strathmore »

    This is the BEST hotel in Strathmore. Excellent friendly service, really good breakfast and a relaxing stay. Not often you find the kind of service provided by the staff at this hotel. Very friendly and helpful with a wonderful welcome. I stay here about 25 nights of the year and would stay no where else in Strathmore.

    « Great place to stop »

    This hotel is a great place to stop if you are looking for a little cheaper hotel compared with those in Calgary. The location is close to other services and easy to find. It is clean and the service is very good. The rooms are a little dated. The bed is comfy. No plastic bag was supplied for the ice bucket which was a concern for health reasons especially when we understood that this was standard for this particular hotel. I suggest asking the front desk person for one. The hot tub temperature was perfect. We enjoyed the continental breakfast.

    « Airport access during first 'winter' storm. »

    Wanting a place for four adults close to the Calgary Airport, we found this place to be our best value, especially as they included breakfast, and the hotel was right on the highway that put us within 35 minutes of the airport. All this during our first snow and freezing rain storm of this year.

    « Great Service and Close to everything »

    We stayed BW Strathmore last week and again was more than happy with the service, amenities and accommodations. We were fortunate enough to stay in one of the suites on the 2nd floor and was so happy with the accommodations that we decided to order supper in and walked across to the local beer store and bought a few beer, turned the fireplace on in the room and enjoyed an evening watching hockey. Mercy the customer service representative at the front desk was helpful with information and as usual was friendly and directed me to the Business Centre to book my BW accommodations for the next night. Breakfast in the morning was great, well laid out with a variety of items and helpful staff. BW Strathmore Inn is always on our list when travelling east or west and we make a point of ensuring our stop there. A great hotel with great staff.

    Best Western in Strathmore is easy to find and access from Highway 16. There are services nearby and the Roadhouse restaurant and lounge next door offers good food. I would recommend this establishment to anyone.

    « Clean and Quiet »

    Enjoyed my stay. Felt new and just simply clean, comfortable beds. Good free breakfast included; bacon, sausage, eggs, waffles and then all your other cold breakfast options. Pool and hot tub available but I didn't use them.

    « Decent for overnight stay »

    Stayed in the suite which is basically a standard 2 bed hotel room with a wall between the two beds and a set of french doors. The doors effectively separate the two parts of the room but have windows which are opaque so light shines through. It was nice to have a microwave and a fridge in the room. Room was clean and furniture in good shape. The pool and hot tub area was a nice feature! Kids enjoyed it. The breakfast was pretty impressive and started at 5:30am. Fresh fruit, juices, coffee, yogurt, cereal, oatmeal, waffle maker, bacon, sausages, eggs, bagels, bread, muffins. Friendly staff. overall, the hotel was a bit dark but other than that, I hate no complaints.

    « BW in Strathmore, Alberta »

    We were very happy with our stay at the BW in Strathmore. Readily available wifi, Reception was great, room was clean, large bathroom with handrails; Great selection of breakfast items, and very helpful room staff. Very convenient to car wash, and getting back on the road the next day. Definitely stay there again.

    « Standard fare »

    Typical Best Western, with pool, and continental breakfast. Pool was salt water, which is a bonus. They allow pets, unlike the Bet Westerns in Calgary which is also a notch in their favor. I enjoyed being able to park right in front of my door, made unloading quick. The rooms kept out the noises from the highway, but not some of the late nighters.

    « Great Night Stay »

    Stayed here for one night on our way back to MB from BC. Was tired from a long drive and just wanted to relax. Great location that's within walking distance for food, and relaxing in the hot tub made our night. Front desk staff was nice and helpful, and a woman working the continental breakfast was very friendly as well. Enjoyed the breakfast before we started off again the next morning. Would definitely stay again.

    « Best Western »

    Our stay was fantastic...the room was very clean ands nice. The bed was very comfortable and we were treated to a great selection breakfast in a very nice room. The staff were helpful and friendly. Will definitely stay there again!

    « Great, pet friendly option at a reasonable price »

    Chosen as it was the best value based on my search while travelling cross country. Staff friendly and helpful, and very accommodating, as too often websites are not giving hotels the information that a pet friendly room is needed. Clean room, quiet night with a very good sleep. Comfortable.

    « Our Go-To hotel for cross-country road trips »

    We stayed here twice this summer and I have only positive things to say about this property. We travel east and back every year and from now on will stay here on both ends of the journey. We always get a pet-friendly room and the drive-up style ground floor exit is so convenient; unloading the car is a breeze and it's so nice to be able to walk right outside for those early-morning dog walks. We have always found the rooms to be clean and spacious. Upstairs is a large pleasant breakfast room with items enough to keep everyone happy. The lobby is warm and inviting, staff have always been friendly and helpful, and the hotel is right off the Trans-Canada for easy access. For those needing a quick grocery run, there is a Co-Op store nearby. The hotel is an easy walk from a safe residential area; a good venue for an evening stroll. Our family gives this BW a high recommendation!

    « Best Western »

    We checked in to the Best Western in Strathmore after driving for hours through rapeseed fields punctuated by herds of cows. The elderly night clerk showed us menus for two nearby good restaurants, but we wrongly elected to go to KFC. Our room was clean and comfy once the too-cold sir conditioning was turned off. I liked the two queen beds; my husband used all four pillows in his bed--his idea of bliss. We had a good night's sleep and awoke to wind, rain, and chill. Breakfast was goodish--scrambled eggs, sausages, Canadian bacon, premixed machine Nescafe instant coffee, my husband noted. There were all sorts of carbs and fruits available--I had a Clementine and my husband a banana. Other visitors included older couples, a male family with a small boy, singles, and a multigenerational Mennonite family. My husband stated that the motel is dark and needs a bit of updating in the halls. It could also use an elevator for the elderly and disabled.

    « Excellent »

    We chose this Best Western for its proximity to Hwy#1. We were greeted by a pleasant man who told us that since we are ?platinum members? we could upgrade to a larger king-bedded room at no additional cost. He did, however, mention that the room was on the 2nd floor and there were no elevator in the hotel. We chose to upgrade and were delighted. The room was huge and in addition to the usual amenities it had a small table with 4 chairs, fridge, microwave, sofa, coffee table and fireplace. The bathroom was extra large and had a Jacuzzi tub and separate shower. The halls and room were clean and quiet and the bed was very comfortable. Full breakfast was included. Would definitely recommend and stay here again.

    « A nice place to stay »

    The hotel was easy to find. Everything was clean. The desk staff were helpful and friendly. My only beef is that there is no elevator, and my room was on the first floor, down a level from the lobby, and I had to carry a heavy suitcase down a flight of stairs. As with most hotels, the sheets had that slight hospital-ish stench.

    « Gem near Calgary »

    Check in and out was very easy. Situated near food and shopping. Great place to stay for the Stampede, easy to get into Calgary. Lovely clean pool and lounge. Very pleasant staff, especially Joy, who will welcome you with her warm smile and helpful suggestions etc.. Good prices for great value. I never have had a bad experience at a Best Western. Quality control is a top priority for this brand. Highly recommend it for families.

    « Very pleasant and helpful staff »

    This hotel was very clean if a little dated. Our room was on the lower floor and there was no elevator, the pool and breakfast room were on the floor above us. Also we had some noisy children running around in the room above us and it was very loud. Fortunately they went to bed fairly early. The bed and pillows were comfortable and the linens were of fairly good quality. The toilet was very low. I don't know why these hotels don't use a comfort height toilet. I have some mobility issues, don't need a totally accessible room but a higher toilet would help. The pool and hot tub were nice and clean. The breakfast was fairly good with two types of egg and two meat choices, as well as all the other usual things. The staff were very helpful and friendly.

    « Great overall experience. »

    Second time we stayed there - great experience. Friendly reception staff (helpful). Nice breakfast experience (better than the standard continental breakfast)- quiet hotel and pet friendly. Would stay there again anytime. The reception staff were helpful.

    « Outstanding employees »

    Great customer service! Personable, outgoing, helpful employees. Clean rooms, comfortable beds, good coffee (important to me). Did not get up in time for breakfast so no comment on that. Convenient location; proximity to Calgary and easy access to major highways. Good choices of eating places in the vicinity.

    « Good Option for Area Travel »

    Hotel was clean and modern. Staff were friendly and helpful. Our two bedroom suite was just what the six of us needed. Breakfast well stocked and area kept tidy Recommend this hotel as a base for the Tyrell Dino Museum in Drumheller and the Calgary Zoo.

    « Strathmore Best Western »

    We enjoyed our stay immensely, from the time we checked, it was great. Super friendly front desk staff, room was very clean, smelled so nice and fresh, no chemical smell of airfreshners. Bed was like a cloud to sleep on. Swimming pool and hotub were very clean no harsh chemical smell either. Breakfast area huge and also very clean. Good selection of breads, bagels muffins etc. Fresh fruit, Yogurts, cereals, you can even make Belgian waffles. I give this Hotel an A+. Would for sure stay here again.

    « Great motel »

    We always chose this hotel for our stay when we travel west. The overall of this motel is great and we have had nothing but great service. I had to print my boarding pass and the printer would not work. The check-in staff came and in no time he had me all set up. Price is not bad either. Front staff should not be doing any other tasks but front desk as I've seen some customers waiting as front staff was busy with the breakfast area.

    « Baseball tournament stay »

    So called hotel the day we left hotel and said we left our phone cord plugged into wall behind the night stand! Front desk said cleaning people did not hand it in so we must still have it!

    « Excellent Location and Staff »

    This Best Western in Strathmore, AB is an excellent place to stay for business or pleasure. It is only 25 mins away from downtown Calgary and has great rates which include breakfast! CAN'T BEAT THAT!! The breakfast isn't your typical cheap serving of muffins toast or cereal. The breakfast served at this location is the full meal deal. waffles, toast, scrambled eggs, bacon, sausages, and lots more! The staff are extremely polite, professional and very helpful!

    « Perfect Stay! »

    Great hotel - clean, nice pool area, grand breakfast! Pet friendly rooms available and also pull up parking with double door rooms, very handy when travelling with family! Handy location with several restaurants within walking distance. Very helpful front desk and free wi-fi, we'll be back!

    « Nice Hotel »

    Stayed at the hotel for a weekend on a ringette tournament. Even with kids around the hotel was quite quiet and we had no problem with the breakfast. The front desk staff were very good to deal with and very helpful. The room was clean and well furnished. It was close to everything and if we had any questions the staff were very willing to help out. Would recommend it to anyone needing a good place to rest or stay.

    « Exceptional customer service! »

    There is no doubt that this Best Western is the best place to stay in Strathmore. The cost is affordable, the rooms are clean, there are many items to choose from at breakfast, and the staff are extremely friendly, professional and accommodating.

    « Nice relaxing hotel »

    We enjoyed staying at the hotel. The rooms are clean and spacious, and the beds very comfortable. There was a good selection of breakfast foods, something for every taste. We enjoyed the pool and especially the hot tub, which was actually hot. The staff was proffessional and courteous. The location of this hotel was convient to the major roads, but the hotel itself was quiet and relaxing.

    « Great Location »

    I have stayed at this Hotel on many trips to the Calgary area and have never been disappointed. The staff are very professional and look after any needs you may have. The morning breakfast has many choices for everyone.

    « Pleasant stay in Strathmore, AB »

    Our family immensely enjoyed the hotel and its amenities. The swimming pool and hot tub were well looked after, the breakfast was excellent. We found the staff to be extremely friendly and helpful. We will be back.

    « Work stay »

    Very friendly staff, good breakfast. Nice room with separate bedroom. Good selection of room layouts for business or family. Ground level, outside access if desired. Fridge and microwave in all rooms.

    « Pleasant Surprise »

    This property was a pleasant surprise. On the outside it does not look special but on the inside the updated décor and awesome staff make this a special hotel to stay at. It has easy access off the highway and places near by to have your evening meal.

    « Great Value »

    This Hotel is easy to find in the Center of Town. The staff is friendly and courteous. The Hotel is clean and comfortable. the Breakfast was varied and good for a non-restaurant. It is very good value!

    « A Nights Rest »

    I stopped in here on my way through town heading east. It had nice easy access from the highway. Nice clean rooms with nice beds. It was indeed recently renovated. I ate the breakfest offered in the morning and I liked it. Everything was well stocked and fresh. My room was on the first floor. So I had inside or outside access, which was super convenient!! There is no elevator that I saw. So if your disabled and want to eat the breakfest, stay on the second floor. Or if your disabled and want quick access to your car, stay on the first floor, as you can park right at your door. There are also outdoor plugins as well.

    « pleasant surprise »

    This hotel doesn't look too impressive from the outside, but inside is beautiful! So spotless, soothing décor, lovely pool and whirlpool area, fireplace in lobby, everything was attractive, and very, very clean and organized.

    « Good Value and in a Charming Town »

    You will enjoy this hotel for the price. The hotel parking is free. During your stay you can enjoy the indoor pool and exercise room. The Front Line Staff are great and are very attentive to detail. They have good breakfast options and you can request gluten free items. If you are looking to dine out we enjoyed a good restaurant very close to the hotel -- the Strathmore Station Restaurant and Pub.

    « Clean rooms and friendly staff »

    I recently stayed here for two nights while I was volunteering nearby. Check in went smoothly and staff was extremely welcoming. Room was very clean and bed was comfortable. The breakfast room was always well stocked and clean. Every time I passed the front desk the staff made an effort to acknowledge me with a smile or hello. Overall this was a comfortable stay. I would stay here again.

    « Very clean and nice decor »

    We stayed here as part of a multi day journey on our way to Alaska. The hotel was conveniently located off the highway. It was very clean with a nice updated decor. The exercise area was not equipped for an intense workout. There is a nice restaraunt/pub within walking distance. The staff was friendly and the breakfast was nice.

    « Great value!! »

    Stayed in a King Suite with fireplace and jacuzzi tub. The price was $109 - an unbeatable deal! Not too far from Calgary but way cheaper! Friendly staff, clean room. Hotel has no elevator. Pool and hot tub area clean and well maintained.
