"Hotel of excellence"

5
06/08/2018

This hotel is no. 1 in my books, with the service, the room(s), the jacuzzi/hot tub and pool and most of all, the rewards you can collect after wards. A hotel for children and parents alike. Something for adults with casino slots in the restaurant, if you like slots, and the food is excellent, and across the hotel is a mall, Kingsway Mall. I would recommend this hotel for any type of stay.

Douglas C, Front Office Manager at Best Western Plus City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you very much for your glowing review! This is exactly what I want to read from all of our guests and I am glad we were able to provide you with such a great experience.

"Nice clean hotel at a reasonable Price"

29/07/2018

We stayed for 1 night at this hotel to attend an event. We booked through Airmiles and had no issues at check-in. Quiet, clean and across from the Kingsway Mall. Tim Hortons on site was helpful, although it would have been nice to have a breakfast, as that is what we are accustomed to at Best Western Pluses. Would stay here again if ever in the neighbourhood Staff was friendly and the beds were super comfortable with a fridge, microwave, coffee and 2 different pillow options. Unfortunately didn't get a chance to check out the pool and hot tub.

Douglas C, Front Office Manager at Best Western Plus City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for the review! I am glad you enjoyed your stay. While we don't offer a free breakfast we do give a pretty good discount on our breakfasts for hotel guests. This is a made to order breakfast that is sure to fill you up and start your day right!

i do enjoy the stay here staff is really nice and the amenities are good here my kids really enjoy the pool when we stay here. It is close to the mall if you want to do some shopping as well. prices are very reasonable here

Thank you for the review! I hope to see you again soon!

"Family stay for sports event in Edmonton."

A little bit expensive for the room. Just a standard room but more expensive than other Best Westerns. But continue to stay here, as it is convenient to Hospital, NAIT, and shopping. Pay for convenience. Convenient pre-checkout.

Douglas C, Front Office Manager at Best Western Plus City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for the review! Our rates may seem a little higher, but it's like you said it is all about location. We are conveniently located to many great amenities in the city and have easy access to pretty much everything else.

"Awesome Hotel!"

5
20/07/2018

I have stayed here many times over the years and have never had a bad stay. The staff are fantastically friendly and helpful. If you are staying because of the nearby hospital, they are extremely compassionate. I have stayed here for many reasons, hospital trips, business, courses at NAIT, and personal. It fits all criteria for all stays. EAT AT THE LOUNGE! Runway 39 has some of the best hotel food I have had. Every time I stay and eat here, I get something different and I have yet to get a meal that I don't like. The only downside for some people is that there is no family restaurant here so no kids. Good for me, as I don't have any. They also have a Tim Horton's in the hotel if you are into that. This hotel is also right across the street from Kingsway Mall. It is a fantastic shopping center with all the mall stores that you expect.

Douglas C, Front Office Manager at Best Western Plus City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for the glowing review! I am a big believer in the Lounge as well! The Club House Wrap is a personal favourite of mine.

"Awesome waterslide. Great location if you need to be central."

19/07/2018

You wouldn't think so from looking at it but the waterslide is one of the best hotel waterslides. Great place for families to stay - I am glad we chose to spend the extra to get the pool and waterslide. Rooms were clean - its a typical Best Western.

Douglas C, Front Office Manager at Best Western Plus City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for the review! The water slide is incredibly fast and guests of all ages seem to love it.

"Impeccably clean and great rates"

4
19/07/2018

I stayed here for a week in preparation for my move to Edmonton. First all the good points: The hotel is IMPECCABLY clean, both in the rooms and common areas. The cleaning staff do an excellent job and clearly take pride in their jobs. My room was nicely furnished, with a great TV and the bed was super comfortable. Nice shower as well, and bathroom quite roomy. The pool is FANTASTIC - perfect temp, not too hot, not too cold, and a good size (I find some hotel pools are slightly larger than a bathtub, but this one is great!). It also has a beautiful hot tub, ample seating for people watching kids, and a super fun waterslide (beware, it is fun but FAST!). Really, I only have two negatives, and that is mostly about the location. The first few days I was there, I found that there were groups of people just hanging out in the parking lot which made me a little leery at times. Also, the section I was in for rooms was rather oddly set up - there is a secure entry corridor that runs along all the rooms, so if your curtains are open anyone in the parking lot can see in (if you are ground floor), as well as anyone walking by. That made me feel a bit uncomfortable, but I did always feel safe. Also, I wish the curtains would go to the floor, because the light does spill in from them. Besides that, it is a well managed, well staffed hotel. Great staff, great rates, super clean and comfy.

Douglas C, Front Office Manager at Best Western Plus City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for the detailed review! The housekeeping staff are really something else. They will appreciate the kind comments! As for your negative points sometimes we will have Tim Horton's patrons in our parking lot. If you ever feel like there's a group who shouldn't be here just call the front desk and we can go investigate! I understand your points about the room set up as well. Next year we are planning to do a big renovation in those rooms to really make them stand out!

"Great place to stay, will definitely stay again! "

14/07/2018

We booked last minute and had a great stay. The rooms are nice and clean. The hotel is a fair size but not overwhelming. We never had a chance to use it, but the pool looks great! They also have life jackets for the kids which is awesome. The front desk staff was the best, super accommodating and friendly. I believe it was Jesse who checked us in (sorry if that's the wrong name). He was so friendly and made the check in process a breeze for this exhausted mama. Highly recommend!

Douglas C, Front Office Manager at Best Western Plus City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for the glowing review! Jesse is definitely the right guy. He is always going out of his way to accommodate guests and try to make their stay better. I will pass along the kind words!

"Tim Horton's on site and a Mall across the street = score"

4
11/06/2018

Spent the night at the Best Western and while the rooms were pretty average (comfortable beds but bathroom set up a bit awkward), the main draw was the location. There was a Tim Horton's on site for an affordable breakfast, Kingsway Mall across the street with all the store of West Edmonton Mall but 1/3 the people, and it was a short drive to City Centre for Movies and the Rogers Centre where we saw the figure skating. There was also a pool which our kids enjoyed. Price was fair considering the location and we would definitely stay there again in the future.

Douglas C, Front Office Manager at Best Western Plus City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for the detailed review! Our location is a huge draw for our guests and I am glad you made use of all the nearby attractions!

"If you've done West Edmonton Mall"

20/05/2018

We have stayed here a few times because of the amenities. There is a Tim Hortons on site. The pool is small but there is a waterslide and a hot tub to enjoy. It is located across the street from Kingsway Mall which has a huge Forever 21 and a new Marshalls is opening.

Douglas C, Front Office Manager at Best Western Plus City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for the review! I believe the Marshall's is now opening and there will be some more exciting stores opening up in Kingsway Mall soon!

This is my first time here. Fast and no hassles on getting g a room on the ground floor for myself and client .easy check in as it was already paid for.. lots of easy shopping places to go to. Loved the fact there was a Tim hortons right next door. Recommend anyone come stay here

Thank you for your review and your recommendation! We know business travelers like easy and we aim to make everything convenient and easy for all our guests!

"Best Western North Edmonton"

03/05/2018

Really not a lot to say about the hotel itself. It was close to where I needed to be to attend a course. I arrived into the city fairly late, so really, I was only in the room for a few hours. Checking in was easy, the rooms are well appointed and the express check out made life quite uncomplicated. Never utilized any of the facilities/amenities due to my very late check in. This would certainly be a good place to stay if attending a game at Rogers Centre or Commonwealth Stadium --- and the NAIT LRT Station is all of about 5 minutes walking away.

Douglas C, Manager at Best Western Plus City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for the review! I am glad your stay was nice albeit uneventful. You are right and events at Rogers Place are easy to get to from us!

Friendly, courteous and efficient staff. Clean, comfortable rooms. Nice pool with waterslide. Good location with easy access and sufficient parking. Pleasant restaurant with great service and good food. (Children's hours are limited due to gaming/gambling regulations). Express breakfast is fast, convenient, and reasonably priced. Room service is fast, but expensive.

michaelsZ5230GX, General Manager at Best Western Plus City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your review. I am happy to hear that you had a good stay. I would like you to know that you can get take-out from the lounge for dine-in prices for no extra charge anytime between 7am-11:30pm.

"Excellent Hotel"

24/04/2018

We stayed here for one night during a trip to Edmonton (2 kids 2 adults). I always try to stay at Best Western simply because I have good luck at these hotels with cleanliness, location, amenities etc. This hotel did not disappoint. Bonus... Tim Horton's is attached! Check-in was smooth, the hotel was very clean and smelled clean as well. The rooms are well laid out. I love that the sink is separate from the bathroom, in the same area as the fridge/microwave area which is separate from the bed area. Like a small kitchenette without the kitchenette room prices. The pool/water slide/hot tub gave the whole family something to do and the hours are GREAT (7am to 11pm). The beds we found very comfortable and the pillow selection was perfect for all our different needs. There is ample parking and each zone has it's own entry / parking area. We really enjoyed this hotel and would definitely stay again on our next trip to Edmonton.

Douglas C, Manager at Best Western Plus City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your detailed review! It sounds like you had an absolutely wonderful stay! We have been working to make improvements to the property and you've mentioned a lot of the details we have been updating like pillows and parking. I hope we can be your go to spot in Edmonton from now and I look forward to your next stay!

"Equal to a Super 8 motel!"

1
20/04/2018

Terrible, terrible terrible! Haven't even stayed the night yet and I want to leave. The doors are paper thin. We are in an adjoining room and have had to put my child in the back room furthest away from the door to the hallway for her to have any chance of sleeping. Called the front desk to move and of course there are no other rooms available. Save your money and go elsewhere. It reminds me of a cheap Super 8 motel or even worse.

michaelsZ5230GX, General Manager at Best Western Plus City Centre Inn, responded to this review
I apologize that you had an uncomfortable night. Our walls in the hotel are sand filled concrete, our floors and ceilings are concrete, and our doors are solid core fire rated doors. They are the most soundproof room enclosures available. Still, staying at a hotel is not the same as staying at home and I understand that unfamiliar noises can be difficult for children to deal with when sleeping in surroundings that they are not used to.

"Great pool with slide"

14/04/2018

Came here for a water polo tournament, staff was very helpful and accommodating. The kids enjoyed the pool and the location was perfect for our team. Rooms were great for families and the Tim Horton's in the hotel was awesome to have for those early games.

Douglas C, Manager at Best Western Plus City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for the review! I hope the kids had fun and the tournament went well!

We stayed there cause it was close to hospital where my boyfriend was having day surgery. The room was great,but could use a few more garbage cans,but seems to be like that at most hotels. The staff was very accommodating and friendly. Will be back.

Douglas C, Manager at Best Western Plus City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for the review. I am glad to hear you will be back. Garbage cans are tricky because we don't want them getting in the way, but also want guests to have the convenience. If you ever need an extra one just call down to the Front Desk and we can run and find you one!

Spent the night at the Best Western Plus City Centre Inn, and had a great stay. Checked in, Staff was wonderful, I asked for a ground floor due to disabilities and my request was honoured with no problem. Room was perfect, bed was so comfortable, slept well. Ate at the restaurant Runway 29, and the food was delicious. Can't wait to go back!

Douglas C, Front Office Manager at Best Western Plus City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for the review! It is wonderful to read that you had such a great experience with us. I can't wait to have you back here so we can treat you again!

"Nice clean rooms but personal requests not important to the hotel. Restaurant not kid friendly."

26/03/2018

My son booked well in advance (speaking directly to the hotel) to reserve three rooms in a row, as his 4 year old autistic daughter was staying in a hotel for the first time. The plan was to have his room in the middle, so that if she had a loud meltdown, there would be relatives on both sides, so that other guests would not be disturbed. When we arrived, this request had not been implemented. Eventually, the staff found 2 rooms side by side, so we moved to those two rooms. Not ideal. The Runway only allows children until 10 a.m....Very inconvenient. Food mediocre.Service good.Sketchy looking people hanging around parking lot in the evening. Will not stay here again.

Douglas C, Manager at Best Western Plus City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your review. I apologize for your stay. The staff try to meet every request to the best of their ability. Your stay was on a busy weekend which made it more of a challenge. This should have been avoided and I will be talking with the staff about better guest service. Some properly written notes and comments on the reservation would have made all the difference. The Runway 29 Lounge is open at 7:00 am and serves minors until around 9:30 am. This is not by choice. This is a law from the AGLC. We do offer a lot of options for our guests though. Food is available via room service or we can do takeout. If you would like to sit together and eat as a family we have a large community table here in our lobby that would do the trick.

"One night stay for early appointment"

24/03/2018

Very clean, check in and checkout was fast friendly and helpful. Bed was very comfortable with plenty of blankets and pillows. These are often lacking in many hotels-motels. When the clerk noticed my wife using a cane he switched our reservation to the ground floor. Very courteous.

Douglas C, Front Office Manager at Best Western Plus City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your review. The staff try and make everyone's stay more comfortable. We do have an elevator for guests that need it, but if available it is always easier to move someone to a room that better suits their needs.

"Clean but..."

27/02/2018

The staff was ok, but inconsistent. Rooms were very clean however I had to travelled for business over the weekend. As there is a pub attached the patrons ended up in the hotel. Got woken up at 3:30am by loud guests. Front desk didn't seem to bother with them. Won't stay again.

Douglas C, Manager at Best Western Plus City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your review. I am sorry to hear you won't be coming back. The patrons who woke you up wouldn't have been from out hotel as our Runway 29 Lounge does last call around 11 pm and is closed by midnight. This is to try and prevent situations like yours where you were woken up by unruly guests. We try to keep noise levels at a minimum, but every once in awhile someone will slip by. We are not a party hotel nor are we in the business of waking up our guests who pay a good rate to get some sleep with us. I will pass along your message to our night staff.

12/02/2018

I came to the Best Western because I was very disgruntled with the Fantast Land Hotel. The staff was great. The room was quiet and the pool was open really late for my kids! The room the first night was quite expensive considering I came in the middle of the night. But other than that, everything was perfect.

Douglas C, Manager at Best Western Plus City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for the kind words. I am sorry that you did not have a good stay at your first hotel. It sounds like your trip was still a success though. I hope to see you on your next vacation in to Edmonton!

Thank you for the positive review! I am glad that the staff was able to make a positive impression on you.

"Convenient Location - Good pool area"

07/02/2018

This was conveniently located to downtown and Kingsway Mall. The pool, waterslide and hot tub were great. Would have been good to have a warm continental breakfast for the price of the hotel - as most hotel have this included for the price we paid. Staff were great. Has large, long hallways with a very small elevator, which was kinda scary to get into in terms of sounds and size. You may need to be able to walk with your luggage down long hallway to get to your room. Our room needed some upgrading in terms of furniture but bathroom was redone.Overall, for convenience, was a good stay!

Douglas C, Manager at Best Western Plus City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your review. As you can imagine we are going to be doing some more room upgrades this year. The elevator for the rooms is a little older, but is very well looked after and we would not be using it if it was not 100% safe. I invite you to come back and see some of our recently upgraded rooms to help turn that 3/5 rating into something more!

"An Excellent Place to Stay"

21/01/2018

The first time I stayed here was for important surgery. This is the closest hotel to the Royal Alex hotel, and the staff made every effort to make that stay and every stay since then as easy as possible for my husband and I. The hotel is central to all of my hospital and doctor appointments, and offers a medical rate on request. The hotel has been very accommodating of my now limited mobility. My husband takes advantage of the workout facilities whenever possible. The convenience of being across the street from the Kingsway Mall has been wonderful for everything from filling prescriptions to Christmas shopping. The staff is always amazing and the rooms are comfortable and clean.

Douglas C, Manager at Best Western Plus City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your kind review. We see a number of people come in for medical appointments. Most of our staff have been through those situations whether it was themselves or a family member and they know the feeling. It doesn't take much to comfort or take care of someone, but it can make all the difference in the world. I am glad that we have been able to make that difference for you.

"no smoker - billed for smoking in a room"

12/01/2018

The general manager should have consulted me before billing me for "smoking" in the room...I am a non-smoker. There is a smoking area below my room, outside. That would have been the source of the stench, as my window was cracked open a little over night because of how stuffy the place was..

"Don't waist your time or your money. "

10/01/2018

I thought this place would be a good choice to take my daughter because of the pool and the water slide. It was not a good choice at all. Firstly the front desk of the hotel advised me that minors are not permitted in the restaurant but that I could order room service for my starving child who just traveled many miles for a medical appointment. I thought it strange that a hotel restaurant would be off limits to families but room service will do. I don't particularly like the smell of food in a hotel room but the child needs to eat. We got settled and I called the restaurant extension only to get a busy signal. I was unable to get through for almost 10 minutes and then a lady answered the phone and immediately asked if I would hold on a minute. She set the phone down and walked away. I could here people coming and going so I waited and waited and waited. After 10 minutes I hung up and called back. Surprise, surprise, the phone was busy. That phone was busy for a half an hour. Long enough for me to pack up my daughter and go in search of food and get back to our room. When I finally got through the woman who answered the phone thought the whole thing was rather funny. I don't. The front desk of the hotel didn't answer the phone either of the 3 times I called for assistance. The room is tiny and the coffee maker and fridge are in the bathroom. We have a window in our room looking into a hallway and I can hear everything from the rooms around me. Don't waist your time with this place. There are much better places in Edmonton to spend your money.

Clean and comfortable with a great little pool, hot tub and spiral water slide. Good place to take the family. Mall across the road. Walking distance to the wedding reception we were attending. Not really downtown, as its name may imply, but you could see downtown from there.

"Uncontrolable Room Temperature"

06/01/2018

The room was too hot and we could not cool it. Nobody got a nights rest. There was an AC fan but it was noisy and did not cool. The thermometer on my alarm clock was maxed. It was quiet. There was a water line break somewhere and the restaurant was closed. The plugins outside worked though the parking stalls are not big enough for a pickup truck. The staff was polite and the room was clean. It's close to the Royal Alex Hospital. Don't buy KFC from the location at 100 Ave and 178 street. I can not say anything polite about the food or service.

Douglas C, Manager at Best Western Plus City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your response. I am very sorry you did not get a good night's rest. We have heard you loud and clear and will be making some changes on how we cool our rooms in the winter. I invite you to come back and give us another shot as I know we can do better than be a 3/5 Hotel.

Our family had a wedding on New Years Eve so we all booked in to Best Western City Center. It was a great experience all around. Super location, right across from a big shopping centre, great access to Jasper Avenue and the entire downtown area. Room was clean and comfortable, beds and pillows were like sleeping on a cloud! All staff were very friendly and helpful! This will be our “go to” Edmonton hotel from here on in!

Theroom was quiet, and the pool was warm, the hot pool was refreshing. The food in the restaurant, Runway 29, was excellent but being a senior I found the portions very large , so much so that I could finish neither supper nor breakfast.

Douglas C, Manager at Best Western Plus City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your review. The pool is a great way to relax after a long day! The portions are large up there, but we always have a doggy bag if you need one. There are also fridges and microwaves in the room to eat the leftovers!

My wife had to have surgery at Royal Alexandra Hospital, which is just around the corner. We also made sure we had a day to do some Christmas shopping at the Kingsway Mall. The shopping mall is great. There are a few good restaurants close by, Tim Hortons is right attached to the hotel. The rooms are in great shape but a bit small. There is no continental breakfast at this hotel, which is too bad, but Tims and Runway 29 are attached.

"Could use some updates"

11/12/2017

The hotel itself is alright. Nothing too exciting other then the Tim Hortons and the fact that it is across the street from Kingsway mall. We stayed in the long wing across from the lobby and were put right beside the stairs and you could hear everyone's conversations and doors slamming who used the staircase. The rooms are a little dated, with old baseboard heaters (which appear not to work, and are just left over from back in the day). Our thermostat did nothing and the room stayed at a 16-17 degrees no matter what we adjusted it to. The beds were comfortable, good tv selection.

Douglas C, Manager at Best Western Plus City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your review. It sounds like you were being a little generous when you gave us a 4/5! The heaters should definitely work in the room. I will have to have maintenance look in on it. Things are definitely getting a bit dated on that side of the hotel. 2018 will see lots of rejuvenation and updates that I am sure our guests will love!

Great location being across from Kingsway mall and next to Kingsway BLVD. Easy access to shopping and hospitals. Tim Hortons on site as well as a Restaurant upstairs. Downside is there is no free breakfast like at other BW locations. There is a pool, hot tub and waterslide. My bed was a bit hard, and the decor a little outdated but not bad.

Douglas C, Manager at Best Western Plus City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your review. The location is really top notch and makes it easy for our guests to make their way around town. Our breakfast isn't included like at some other hotels, but we do offer a substantial discount for hotel guests. This is also a made to order full breakfast. I will check in on the bed, but we have put in brand new pillow top mattresses this year! As for the decor this will be next on our list to keep this property moving forward.

We travel to Edmonton at least 6 times a year and we always stay at the Best Western City Centre. The kids like the pool. The Kingsway Mall is just across the street for my wife to shop, and the kids to have a variety of food. The staff are always friendly and willing to help.

"handy for medical stay"

02/12/2017

I have had several stays at this hotel to have treatment at the local hospital , is very convenient. the staff are very helpful and is less that 10.00 for cab ride to hospital. the room service is a bit limited and pricey with too exotic a menu. other than that everything was great.

Douglas C, Manager at Best Western Plus City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your review! A lot of our guests are staying with us for medical purposes. I am glad we can be comforting when you have these appointments. The Runway 29 Lounge offers our Room Service. While they do have a number of new and exciting dishes they do offer the old standbys as well! Pub standards like pizza, burgers and fish and chips are always on the menu for our guest looking for their favourites.

For the amenities and the location this is well worth the price. The Staff were friendly and it was a bonus having a Tim Hortons, and a full service restaurant as well. The location close to the Expo Center and across from a Nice mall helped too.

"Credit Card Charged twice for stay"

We spent one night at this hotel, and following our check out I noticed that our card had been charged twice. We have notified the hotel and they are looking into it, however in the meantime I have paid double for this hotel room

Douglas C, Manager at Best Western Plus City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your response. I have been looking into this issue and have not found any double billing. All of our records indicate that you were only charged the one night. We had contacted you about sending us the record of the double billing, but we have yet to hear back from you. I am hoping this means the issue was resolved and was either a misunderstanding or a bank error.

The hotel met all of my requirements... it was clean, quiet and the amenities were all close. The internet was free and speedy and the coffee and tea was in-room. Could have used bottled water, but that's a minor item.

Rooms have been beautifully renovated and are sufficiently supplied with bar fridge, microwave, coffee maker and supplies, iron, ironing board, and even a stand alone fan. Halls were added to this once upon a time motel, now hotel, that allow for interior access to the pool, restaurant and lobby without having to brave Edmonton winter weather to do so. Oh so quiet now that the city centre airport adjacent to the hotel is no longer operating as such.

Douglas C, Manager at Best Western Plus City Centre Inn, responded to this review

Nice hotel with a pool, waterslide, exercise room, lounge and restaurant. Like I said, great location! Walking distance to a good mall, LRT, and other community amenities. The staff were friendly and helpful, and the rooms were clean. My only real complaint was the air circulation in my room wasn't good- the window looked to a corridor, not outside, and the a/c fan ran constantly but still the room was stuffy.

Douglas C, Manager at Best Western Plus City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for the review. Location is definitely one of our best traits! I am sorry you felt the room was a little stuffy. We do offer some other rooms that might suit you a little better!

The best western city centre inn is located across from Kingsway mall, great for upcoming Christmas shopping. It's a quick 5 min cab to Rogers place. The lounge has great food and can't beat their $9 breakfast. And for those who need Tim Horton is attached to the hotel. Staff members are always friendly and accommodating here. For those with wheelchairs you'll be able to get thru the doors!

The front desk attendant was super accommodating when I had to change our reservation at the last minute, then change it again. When I mentioned that the stay was due to a medical situation, he applied the "hospital rate" which we greatly appreciated. The hotel is very conveniently located for our needs, is clean and comfortable. We will definitely stay there again.

Stayed at this hotel to attend a concert at the coliseum. Easy to get there from the hotel. Kingsway malll right across the street. Breakfast was not included but available in the in-house restaurant -$9 for the Express breakfast, which was fast and very good. 3 options include eggs,omelettes, or pancakes with sides and a beverage.Doubles as a lounge in the evening. Went there for a glass of wine and appy after the concert. Room was well laid out, quiet and comfy!

21/09/2017

I was offered a 'suite' for $186.00/night...the only difference in a suite was that the bathroom was in-between the two queen beds...the room was small and the beds were really stiff. The room appeared clean but when I was packing our stuff up to leave (after 3 nights) I found an empty water bottle tucked under the lip of the bed...we didn't have water bottles in the room. If the floor had been vacuumed they would have found it. I could hear people in the hallways all hours of the night and I could also hear them getting ice from the ice machine. The employees were very nice and helpful and check in and check out were pleasant. They were obviously doing some renovations as there was a lot of painting a paint smell going on.

Enjoyed our stay here for 2 nights, check in was quick. Walking distance to the LRT at NAIT and across the street from the Kingsway Mall. Hotel parking was also free. Hotel has 2 floors. Stayed in the 1 Queen Bed room. Room was clean and updated. Had a large flat screen tv and mini fridge. Coffee machine in room. We did find the room a little small compared to some other hotels we have stayed in, so if you are looking for more space you may want to upgrade to one of the other rooms they have. We also appreciated the late check out. The only small issue we found was the noise from the water pipes we could hear from other guests. Ate at Restaurant 29 one evening, very good service and food was pretty good. Tim Hortons also attached to hotel.

The staff makes up for the outdated room and the walk across the parking lot to get to your room. The rate is average with any other location. The staff in the lounge and hotel were very professional. I'd give service a 10 out of 10. The location is prime being close to downtown and across the mall.

My overall stay at Edmonton's Best Western Plus was very good. Room was comfy and well appointed. Great wifi! Restaurant food was good and both the restaurant and bar staff were great. The only turn off was upon check in, when the two people on the front desk seemed less concerned about being present with me and doing an efficient check-in and instead were more involved with their own conversation about nothing urgent or particularly important. Their service and presence could be improved.

This was more expensive than other hotels I have stayed in at nearby places in the city--good location, it was near the hospital where I was going for a procedure the next day. the room was fairly easy to find. the keys worked good we did not use the coffee or stuff because I was not allowed food or drink at that time My sister and I have done trips together before at other hotels in the city and enjoyed the experience, this time my son drove me and stayed with me.

We had never stayed at this hotel before but this time we were looking for a hotel close to the Royal Alex hospital. This hotel is quite close to the hospital (only about a 5 minute drive away). The hotel has been totally renovated from top to bottom. We would not hesitate to recommend the hotel to anyone.

Went to the Metallica concert and found this hotel worked perfectly. Able to leave car parked at hotel and walked to the Kingsway Mall for the Park & Ride service to Commonwealth. From what we saw of the hotel, it was clean and quiet. Upstairs lounge even stayed open later than normal because of the concert, however, the grill was off so we couldn't fulfill our appetite there after the concert. Onsite Tim Horton's if you just need that coffee. Definitely stay here again for Commonwealth event.

"One of the best run Best Westerns I have stayed at"

05/09/2017

I stay about 90 nights a year in hotels with Best Western accounting for about a third if they are available. This is one of the best BW's I have stayed at. Their housekeeping is incredible. Ryley on the front desk checked me in and answered any questions I had. He is a super nice guy. The location is across the street from Kingsway Mall and I think you could walk there faster than driving. My only complaint is the signage is not the best. My GPS got me there but I was unable to recognize it was a BW due to the signage They have an incredible lounge in part of the building that serves an express breakfast to registered guests for $9 versus $14 on the menu. See my separate review ion Runway 29 here on TA for this excellent meal. There is also a Tim Hortons. I attend the Jubilee Auditorium several times a year and if I stay overnight this will be my first choice for accommodations. It is adjacent to the old Municipal airport but as it is used very, very little, noise is a total non issue.

01/09/2017

We stayed one night here to go to a concert. We booked the room a month in advance with our friends. Check in was slow and our room was small and smelled like old cigarettes. We couldn't open a window since it overlooked the hallway so had to breathe stale air all night. We had 2 fans going and it didn't help. We were charged 169 for a small cubicle, definitely not worth the money when you can't even breathe fresh air. We stay in a lot of best westerns and this one shouldn't be classified as a Plus. We will probably not stay here again and stay at the South one instead as you get your money's worth at that one. (Cheaper too)

Douglas C, Manager at Best Western Plus City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your response. I am very sorry that you did not enjoy your stay with us. On concert nights when lots of guests check in around the same time it may take a little longer to get to everyone. As for the stale cigarette smell I will make sure that this gets looked into. Unfortunately some guests have smoked in our rooms and they are fined accordingly. I regret that you won't be staying with us again, but am glad to hear you will continue to stay with Best Western.

There was no real complaint about the hotel and staff. We felt very welcomed to be there.

My daughter planned a family night out and made arrangement to stay here for one night. We ended up re-booking elsewhere, due to the wrong type of accommodation provided, as well as the general environment. Personally, I felt very unsafe with the type of people hanging around outside, smoking. While she was checking in, a rude woman ran in from outside into the lobby wanting to use the bathroom! Thankfully, hotels.com offered her an $80 credit which we could use elsewhere once the hotel refused to issue a refund, although, they did not provide the type of accommodations that my daughter reserved for. There was no sofa bed and when she called to try to get a cot, the front desk hung up on her. On our way out, reception didn't even acknowledge us. I would never stay here!

Douglas C, Manager at Best Western Plus City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your review. That sounds like a horrendous stay and I apologize that you had to go through all of that! I went through all the booking sites and nothing states that we have a sofa bed. We also haven't had any stay issues with any of our bookings through hotels.com. I think you may have accidentally gotten the wrong hotel.

Went to Metallica and decided to stay with them since it was close to Commonwealth Stadium. Hotel had a resteraunt, Tim Horton's attached, water slides and pool. Kingsway Mall is also located across the street for shopping. A city transit bus was also utilized during our time to see Metallica that picked us up and dropped us off across the street from the hotel. Our stay and selection of this hotel was one of the best that was offered for us. At the moment the hotel has some small renovations taking place, but does not interrupt your stay.

Overall experience was great! If you have trouble walking or carrying your bags ask for a room on the main floor as there is only one elevator and the walk could be long if you are in the adjacent building. Main building is a little noisier because of the pool though. Food in the attached restaurant is excellent but only serves children before 10:00am as they have a VLT station in there. However there is a Tim Horton's also attached to the building so children can eat there or order from the restaurant as room service. Hotel is conveniently located across the street from Kingsway Mall. Room was quiet and comfortable and very clean!

I was down in Edmonton for a couple of days and was booked into this hotel, friendly staff, clean facilities, free internet and a very comfy bed. IT is right across from the Kingsway Mall, which if you are into shopping may be nice but compared to the West Edmonton Mall it is pretty dead. The only issue I might have is that it is pretty much in the middle of everywhere I wanted to go, so Uber was used quite a bit. But all and all a good stay.

Highly recommend staying here, staff go out of their way to be helpful and pleasant, rooms are clean and well appointed. Convenience of having a Tim Horton's on site as well as good quality restaurant/lounge. Medical facilities close by as well as shopping

Douglas C, Manager at Best Western Plus City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your review! The owners here have created a great culture for the staff to be customer service oriented. I look forward to your next stay.

"Family stay in Edmonton before flying out"

17/07/2017

We chose this hotel for 3 reasons: 1 - a pool and waterslide for the kids 2 - the divided rooms 3 - the onsite Tim Hortons The pool was great and kids kids (and husband had a ball on the waterslides) There were even life jackets available for small kids. The Tim Horton's was great to grab a morning coffee and a quick snack and we made use of it everyday. The divided room was good...but space was very limited. There wasn't enough space to put out suitcases and move around. We were only there for 2 nights, so we made due, but space was tight. The location was great for us as we wanted to be close to downtown. All the staff were super friendly, from the front desk to the cleaners. We would definitely stay here again!

Douglas C, Manager at Best Western Plus City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your review. I am glad both your kids and husband made use of the water slide. If you are looking for a room with some extra space ask about the Family Suite the next time you are coming to Edmonton. It is a bit bigger and would be the perfect fit for you and your family!

Thank you for your review and your recommendation! Almost everything you need is close to the hotel and the staff will help you find anything that isn't!

"Quick Visit"

11/07/2017

We were seeking a location for a single overnight stay which was convenient to Rogers Place and the Ice District. This location provided just that. We suspect that this Best Western facility has lost some of its draw as the targeted market being the adjacent municipal airport had closed over 6 years ago. Notwithstanding, this site was still conveniently located to numerous other amenities included road system, fast food and a shopping mall. Clearly the interior and exterior decor were both dated and required upgrade. Again this was countered by friendly and helpful staff as well as very clean rooms. Parking was handing and the buildings and rooms were secured by key cards. No complementary breakfast was a bit of a disappointment offset partially by a discounted breakfast at an adjacent shop. It appears that this facility was undergoing renovations so a future stay would likely become enhanced. When compared to the numerous other Best Western locations we have stayed at over the past three years, this one did not have a strong appeal but the jury is out for the future. Given all of the above, my reaction was the room was a bit over priced. No regrets over our stay but not highly recommended unless driven by its convenient location.

Centrally located and lots close by including close to down town, Rogers Place and quite easy to get anywhere else. Edmonton's ring road is amazing. St Albert isn't far away and nor is the West Edmonton Mall. Will stay here again depending on the reason I am in town. Would be great for an event at the Roger Place.

Douglas C, Manager at Best Western Plus City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your review! The ring road completion was a huge sigh of relief for all of us here in Edmonton. Concerts, games and other events at Rogers are super close, but far enough that we don't get the associated noise and traffic. It's great!

The location, value, cleanliness and helpful staff were all good. My only complaints are that the rooms are dark and sheers need to stay shut because the window looks out on an indoor hallway therefore NO privacy when open...the shower pressure is poor. Otherwise good value and location. Keep up the friendly staff! Tim Hortons on location is handy:)

Douglas C, Manager at Best Western Plus City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your response! I love that the staff made a positive impact on you I do know we can do better than 3 stars though. For your next stay get in contact with the front desk and mention what you didn't like. We have other room types available that would suit you better. As for the shower pressure that seems like something our maintenance team can look into. I hope you'll give us another shot to prove we are more than just a 3 star property!

Fantastic stay, Hotel was clean, undergoing some renovations which will look great when done. Excellent location and value for room. Hot tub was hot, pool and water slide were fun.

A great hotel for business stays. I've stayed here frequently. Clean. Good service. Easy check-in and check-out. Parking is a bit crammed but not horrible. Great lounge upstairs and the fact that the hotel is connected to Tim Hortons is awesome on winter mornings. I've had an issue with booking one time and the central office and local staff were able resolve the problem. I recommend this place for sure.

Douglas C, Manager at Best Western Plus City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your review. There are a lot of guests who come in for business. The hotel is located centrally and has easy access to downtown offices, the main AMA office as well as NAIT. Earning your recommendation is high praise and I hope to see you again soon.

"Cancelled my reservation "

13/06/2017

I have been staying at this hotel for the previous 3 weeks without any problems through WCB. I drove 3 hours showed up at 11:00 pm to get to my hotel for my 4th and final week of physiotherapy but WCB booked me one day earlier than I was supposed to be there. So when I showed up they tell me we cancelled your prepaid week stay and have no room for you tonight. I was treated very rude by Howie and wouldn't believe what I was saying. I ended up having to run around to find another hotel at 11:00 at night because they gave up my prepaid room. I will never step foot into that hotel again.

Douglas C, Manager at Best Western Plus City Centre Inn, responded to this review
I feel awful for you that this happened. WCB informed us earlier this year that they will not pay for No-Show reservations. Since WCB made a mistake when booking your room, it was a no-show for the first night and as per WCB instructions, we had to cancel the room. They give us no direct contact to deal with when it comes to these issues. I would love to be able to hold rooms for guests that do not come. However, we cannot do that for WCB. And it was a full night at the hotel so we had no extra rooms to rent out, otherwise we would have accommodated you. I hope that you will give us a chance again. We are so sorry that your room was booked improperly and you were inconvenienced in the evening.

I love being out of the downtown core, in amongst the cement jungle. This location is next to the city airport, where you can see runway 29. Kingsway Mall is across the street. We used it to buy forgotten dress shoes, hair spray, and a wedding card. It couldn't be better. Liquor store is on the east side of the Mall. Close to neighbourhoods and Borden Park. What else do you need??? This will be our "go to" hotel when in Edmonton. Loved it !!!

"Good hotel - thin walls!"

4
24/05/2017

This Hotel has some really nice features! It has a great room for families with a queen in the front, bathroom in the middle, and a queen in the back... however, the front room is right at the hall (so it can be loud depending on who is going down the hall) The 2 Queen bed standard rooms are basic, but clean, and offer comfy beds. The bathroom provided the necessities. While not a problem of the hotel - the walls are insanely thin, and if you get some jerk in the room next to you talking loudly until 2 or 3AM it dampens your ability to sleep. The pool is small, however, my kids had it to themselves early in the morning! They LOVED the waterslide! Breakfast is not included... you can buy it at the on site restaurant (we elected not to) There is a Tim Horton's on site if you want to grab a coffee or some breakfast items there. We would definitely stay here again when in Edmonton. :)

Douglas C, Manager at Best Western Plus City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your response. Ah noisy neighbours... the sworn enemy of the hotel worker. The Front Desk staff is on call 24 hours a day. If you have someone bothering you from next door then let us know. At the end of the day our hotel is meant for guests to get some rest and if someone is preventing that then we will have to step in. Guests are more than welcome to keep whatever hours they prefer, but if they are being an annoyance to other paying guests than they will have to abide by our rules.

This was my first time here and was going to be there for few days. The staff was very friendly. I was traveling with a trailer and was having some trouble backing up and the Manager himself came and helped me park. They also were kind enough to check me into a room closer to my vehicle. The service levels are A+. The rooms are great. Clean, spacious and cozy and comfy. Room service cleans the rooms each day and they do a great job. They do have a Restaurant but I did not visit there. However, there is a Tim Hortons in the Lobby building which is open 24hrs. Also, the Kingsway mall is right opposite the hotel. A great location and value for money. Would definitely recommend.

Douglas C, Manager at Best Western Plus City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for the review. It's hard enough navigating through the city with a big trailer the least we can do is help you get it parked safely. Earning your recommendation is all we can ask for. It is greatly appreciated.

This is the only hotel we stay at when in Edmonton. Three generations of my family have been staying here now and it has become like our home. The staff is what keeps us coming back...always friendly and accommodating. They even remember our names. During Christmas five years ago my dad had to undergo emergency heart surgery and I was at the hotel by myself throughout the holidays. The staff knew my situation and went out of their way to make my stay and Christmas as best as could be without my family. The rooms are always clean and we have never really had any issues with all of our stays here.

Douglas C, Manager at Best Western Plus City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your review! This hotel is and always has been family owned. Everyone here knows the importance of family and how familiarity will keep people coming back. It gives me a lot of pride that the staff could make such a difference during your stay with us. I hope to see you for years to come!

"Average at Best"

15/05/2017

I would probably not stay in this hotel again. I chose it because it was close to a venue, but I would rather drive an extra few minutes and stay anywhere else. Rooms were small, beds were not very comfortable, parking was a little tight, the room that I had was extremely loud. I didn't sleep very well at all, and a good is really important when you travel for business.

Douglas C, Manager at Best Western Plus City Centre Inn, responded to this review
I checked the room that you rented and apologize. The bed that you slept on is a high end bed, as required by Best Western Plus standards. However, it does have a noticeable squeak and it is uncomfortable. I have since replaced it based on your recommendation. Also, the room that you had was near the elevator, which to some guests can be highly convenient, but even though we have concrete construction, the sound of people getting on and off the elevator in a building with other people in it can disrupt the sleep. Please point out that you wish to be placed in a quieter area next time and our staff will be happy to accommodate you. We always have enough parking to accommodate every vehicle, but I can see how if most stalls are taken up by larger vehicles, it can be difficult to get the doors fully opened. We are planning a realignment of our lot to add some angle parking, which should alleviate some of that pressure. If you would like more free space in your room, I suggest next time staying in one of our king bed rooms or a room with two beds. I hope that you will give us another chance to give you a comfortable stay. I am mailing a gift certificate for this hotel to the address that we have on file for you.

Although a little dated and semi motel style, I found the rooms soundproof. Plug in was not designed for a lefty (in my room anyway) made getting ready a challenge. No free breakfast but a cheap, yet express and tasty breakfast. The bed was quite comfy and clean.

Douglas C, Manager at Best Western Plus City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your response. I've never heard that access may be limited to our south paw guests. How can the staff organize the room to improve access for you? I have however heard some of the dated comments. This spring/summer will bring some major renovations to improve the look of the hotel! I hope you will come back and see it when it's all done.

"Full restaurant and lounge - misleading"

2
05/05/2017

They advertise "Our hotel houses a full restaurant and lounge" but fail to explain the full restaurant does not allow minors after 10 am. This is a huge mislead. The whole reason we picked the place was due to having a restaurant on site as our time is limited and that was a major consideration.

Douglas C, Manager at Best Western Plus City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your response. I am very sorry that your stay was affected by the dine-in hours of the Runway 29 Lounge. The Runway 29 Lounge does close to minors at 10 am because of the Alberta liquor laws. The kitchen is always happy to accommodate guests with full menu room service or take out. I hope that you will give our property another chance. In no way do we intend to mislead or inconvenience our guests.

"Clean, quiet, close to Royal Alex hospital"

03/05/2017

Rooms were clean. Inside the rooms there was no noticeable sound transmission from the street, the hall or neighbouring rooms. Older hotel but rooms have been updated and modernized inside. Though we never used it, there is a pool in main building lobby. Very close to NAIT, Kingsway mall and the Royal Alex hospital. There is a Tim Horton's on site which is a bit of a double edged sword. Your morning coffee is right there but you have to contend with busy traffic and awkward parking lot routing that has non-hotel patrons visiting and parking.

Douglas C, Manager at Best Western Plus City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your response. The rooms have gone through quite a transformation and there are still more changes on the way. The Tim Hortons traffic issue will hopefully be resolved later this year. The plan is to change some of the parking lines around to allow for more room and more stalls. Hopefully the next time you come in this won't be an issue!

We booked here as we were flying into town to attend a 60 th Anniversary, and thought the location would be very good as well as we like these hotels. Everything was fine as we expected, staff were helpful and courteous, there was however no continental breaky as most BW have but for us this time that was alright. We were able to use three gift certificate vouchers we had accumulated from a previous trip to & from the status this winter so that was great. This location is ideal if you need to be close to downtown. We would stay here again.

Douglas C, Manager at Best Western Plus City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your response. First of all congratulations to whoever was celebrating their 60th anniversary! That is quite the milestone. The breakfast may not be continental, but it is offered up in the Runway 29 Lounge every morning. There are discounts available for our hotel guests as well. This is a big full meal that is freshly prepared when you order. I hope your next trip to Edmonton doesn't take 60 years!

"Our room was Good"

22/04/2017

This is an old motel what has been updated and was well done. We had 2 rooms with 2 queen beds and the rooms were spacious and clean. But very expensive for this type of accommodation. I looked at other rooms and the queen bed and king bed rooms were very, very small. I would not stay in one of these rooms. We selected this hotel because it was close to where we needed to be and had a waterslide.

Douglas C, Manager at Best Western Plus City Centre Inn, responded to this review
I am happy to hear that you like our updates. We are constantly renovating and will be doing even more. Our lobby will be undergoing an expansion this fall. It's great that you got to enjoy the waterslide.

Our floors are concrete and complaints were coming from the guests below you. I hope that you understand that we do not want other guests to be uncomfortable and we must call to follow up on guest noise complaints. I also asked and you said that otherwise the service and the room were good. I hope that you give us another chance in the future.

"Over valued"

3
17/04/2017

Enjoyed our recent stay at this hotel but we expected quite a bit more based on the price we paid. They charge a 4-5 star price but really is only a 3 star hotel. Probably based on the location to Kingsway mall, the Royal Alex hospital and the Nait campus. We reserved a king room based on all the reviews and it was a great choice. For some odd reason, we were offered the option of a queen room upon check-in which we fortunately refused because the wing where the queen rooms are was packed with kids and young adults. We stayed in the north wing and is quite far from the lobby/pool which is where all the adult couples seemed to stay. The north wing is connected to the entire hotel via a corridor. We are so glad we read previous reviews or we would have been stung. As for the rooms, they are quite small so don't expect much. They have old electric baseboard heating so anyone with children should be aware. We found the room to be quite dark but clean. The bathroom fan turns on automatically when you turn on the bathroom light and it was very loud. We were surprised to find only 2 towels in the room. That seemed a bit cheap for the price you pay. I'm sure they would have brought more if we asked but that's not the point. The internet speed was extremely good for a hotel. The Optic tv channels were sufficient. There is a high table in the room to eat at but no chairs. There is a very uncomfortable lounge chair and an adjustable office chair on wheels. The restaurant service was quite poor but the food was pretty good albeit expensive. We had breakfast at the Tim Hortons and were surprised at how dead it was. All in all, i consider this a budget hotel and would only stay here again if I received a budget price of $99 or less.

Douglas C, Manager at Best Western Plus City Centre Inn, responded to this review
I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed our fast fibre-optic wifi, many TV channels, and clean room. We always have extra towels available upon request, and include enough for each guest in the room to have one towel, plus hand and face cloths. We don't initially stock extra towels in the room to reduce the harm to the environment of having to launder unused towels before the next guest arrives. However, I understand that it can be an inconvenience to ask for extra towels to be delivered, and I will take this into consideration as a possible change to our policy of how many towels we have in the rooms. Yes, families do stay at our hotel. We have the most sound proof walls in the industry with all floors being concrete, and the rooms having either concrete, or 10"double insulated with sound deadening board walls. So we rarely have complaints about noise. Most guests compliment our hotel on how quiet it is. The heating in the rooms in the North wing of our building is radiant baseboard heat provided by gas and water, not electricity. Like all businesses, there are busy times of day and slower times of the day. The Tim's is quite often busy, but it will have slow periods. I'm happy that it wasn't busy for you so that you could get your food right away.

I was in for just one night on business and was surprised how comfortable my stay was. The room was clean and I had an awesome sleep even with being located right off the elevators. It can be a little pricey here but would stay again if I could get a good deal.

Douglas C, Manager at Best Western Plus City Centre Inn, responded to this review
I'm happy to hear that you had a great stay. The rooms are very quiet, even off of the elevator because when we built the hotel, there was an airport with jumbo jets next door (it has since closed), and we installed the best sound deadening available in commercial construction. When you are in town next time, I hope that we get to host you for another great sleep!

This is a little gem near downtown Edmonton. The hotel rooms are clean and not fancy. Across the street from a mall. Has a great restaurant with large portions.

12/04/2017

Excellent Satff; Clean Rooms; Nice Pool with fun Water Slide for Kids. One major drawback for families is the restaurant/lounge cannot have kids after 10 A.M because their VLT's start-up at that time - in my opinion; a family hotel should cater to families rather than folks who have to get their 'gambling fix' in during the morning...

Every time we stay, we've had fantastic service. No complaints. Great friendly staff. If you're looking for a hotel in a great location, this one's perfect..Kingsway mall is across the street, and Rodgers place is a cheap cab ride away.

Service was excellent. Hotel staff very nice to work with. The hotel was very clean but it could use a little updating. The internet was quite a bit slower than I expected it to be. The only real issue I had was showering every morning I could not get the water any warmer than lukewarm. One morning I even got up an hour earlier to try and it was still barely lukewarm. Definitely need to upgrade their hot water system. One morning the breaker blew for my room. Called the front desk and they had the power back on very quickly.

Douglas C, Manager at Best Western Plus City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your response. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and that the service made up for some of the other shortcomings. I am sorry to read that there were some issues with your stay though. While our internet may not be as fast as some have at home it should still be giving fast enough speed to easily stream TV or movies. The hot water issue sounds like it could be an issue with the room you were in specifically. Please don't hesitate to call down to the front desk so we can get our maintenance team on it. I hope you will consider staying with us again as the issues you've mentioned aren't usually the norm.

We always stay at this location for convenience. It is close to shopping & medical appointments. It has a Tim Horton's connected. It is very clean. Staff are always great. We have never had a bad experience at this Best Western location.

Douglas C, Manager at Best Western Plus City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your response. While I'm happy we've never given you a bad experience I invite you to tell the Front Desk what would make your experience amazing! I hope to hear more from you on your next stay with us.

Friendly staff, very clean rooms. Everything was fabulous would definitely recommend you stay at the Best Western Plus City Center Inn. The pool looked like lots of fun perhaps next time we will have a chance to enjoy it. Loved having a Tim Horton's attached to the Hotel and the fact that it was open 24hrs was a plus.

Very nice hotel, clean room and comfy bed. I would recommend this hotel to people. It is close to NAIT and Kingsway mall. Also close to other places. I would stay at this hotel again. I will be staying at this hotel for my next courses due to proximity and clean.

We appreciated the directions when we entered the City that the staff sent via Email they were very clear and brought us right to the front door. and the Hotel was very close to the Hospital for our medical appointment.

This room was so quite dispite it is set on a very busy street. It was the cleans room I've been in with no complaints. The one thing that could have been better is the towels wish they were softer found them scratchy and the bath towels not big enough. I want you to know if every back in the city again I will be staying again. Thank you for the super stay.

Douglas C, Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for the wonderful review! Since the walls and floors here are concrete, the building is very quiet. I am happy that you appreciated the cleanliness of the rooms. Our housekeeping staff works hard every day to keep them fresh. I have a great tip for the towels. If you find that the ones in the room are not up to your preference, we have bigger fluffy towels for the pool area. Simply ask the front desk and we would be happy to bring them to you. We look forward to seeing you on your next stay!

Great pool and staff for families but bring your own pillows at minimum to have a good sleep. If you like quiet this is also the hotel for you. Our kids were watching a movie at 7pm and got a noise complaint.

Douglas C, Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS City Centre Inn, responded to this review
I'm happy to hear that you loved the pool and the staff. I apologize that you didn't like the pillows. Best Western required thick, fluffy pillows. Personally, I prefer a soft, flat pillow. If you come back, I suggest that you contact the front desk staff and ask for a softer pillow. We have them available for you. Wow, either a guest must have been very sensitive to noise, or the movie was too loud. I apologize for the inconvenience. We are prompt and thorough when responding to guest complaints.

15/10/2016

I have stayed here multiple times little expensive but always good service and clean. Recently stayed in 101 which is at the start of the hall.The hallway in front of the door is carpeted but the one outside the room wall heading to the lobby is tiled everytime anyone pulled a wheeled piece of luggage over the tiled it woke us up. Made for along restless night.

Douglas C, Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS City Centre Inn, responded to this review
I am so sorry that you had a poor sleep because of noise from the hallway. This is the first time that I have heard that complaint about room 101, but I can understand how it could be an issue. We plan on doing a renovation of the lobby next year, and I will look into solutions to minimize the noise effect that you mentioned. Hopefully we will have a chance to make you happy in the future.

Stayed here for two nights and was happy with our experience. Check in was easy and our room was simple but very clean and comfortable. I liked that the mini fridge was actually on the large side and very cold, pool was nice, and the Tim Hortons attached to the hotel was very convenient. This is not a luxury hotel but still very nice and I would stay here again if I needed to be in this area.

Douglas C, Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your review. We always do our best to make check in and check out as efficient as possible. And we use a nice sized fridge because guests may want to store more than tiny things. Our housekeeping staff works hard to keep the rooms in top shape for every guest. We look forward to hosting you again should your travels take you here.

16/09/2016

We stayed here for a couple of nights in early September, it was booked last minute from a family member to be close to the Royal Alexandra hospital. We had a basic queen room, was alright for just sleeping but not much room other than that. Our room had two large towels in it and a few smaller bath towels- which isn't that big of a deal, but in our case housekeeping decided to not show up during the entire stay. Front desk was helpful, and the pool was a lot of fun for my daughter to play in - although fairly deep. Loved having the options of life jackets! Very convenient location, across from Kingsway mall and about 1-2 km from the Royal Alexandra hotel so if you dont feel like ordering from the menu which is somewhat expensive, you can either walk to the 24 hour Tim Hortons on the other side of the hotel or go to the food court across the street. Overall I would consider staying again due to the location and pool that my daughter loved, but would definitely pay extra to upgrade the rooms for the space! (My fault for not confirming the rooms booked with my family member when it was an emergency stay). Would next time be making complaints to the front desk regarding house keeping if the situation was different and we weren't so tired already from our long day.

Douglas C, Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your response. I am sorry to hear that housekeeping did not make up your room during your stay! Usually our housekeeping team is quite punctual. The pool is always a great place for the kids (and adults!) to have some fun. We've got a variety of different life jacket sizes so everyone can enjoy themselves.

Overall good hotel. Will ask for 1st floor room if I book a room again. I am 61 years old and would have liked an elevator to bring my bags up to 2nd floor. Went into Tim Hortons which is attached to hotel. Too many men sitting around booths. Seems like a hangout. Did not feel comfortable as a lone female to sit and have coffee and donut, left without buying anything.

Douglas C, Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your response. We do have an elevator up to our 2nd floor rooms. It is located in the South wing. I am sorry you did not feel comfortable in the Tim's. You are always welcome to come to the lobby and make use of our very comfortable couches!

This was our third stay in as many years at this hotel. Every year we see the improvements that they are doing and it is considerable! The fact that they are right across from the Kingsway Mall and NAIT is definitely a plus for them. We love the decorating and cleanliness and everyone was most helpful and attentive to our needs. Having Tim Horton's on site doesn't hurt either! We will definitely stay again!

Douglas C, Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS City Centre Inn, responded to this review

Brought a family of five from Cold Lake to here (Lord, give me strength). We found this hotel close to the West Edmonton Mall (9km of fairly straight, easy driving). We got a family room for two nights at $320. It has a great pool, separate rooms in the family rooms. Can lock out the teens. No cots available but they do have play pens. It is a straight up hotel, not many add ons but there is a Tim Horton's attached to the hotel, AWESOME! A nice restaurant upstairs that serves a great breakfast. After breakfast, no minors are allowed in though. A big mall across the street (Kingsway) too. Would recommend for any out of town families.

The hotel and its staff are excellent. I would recommend this hotel all day long. I will book here again. On the flip side the attached restaurant was terrible. Poor service, terrible food and no real value. The staff at the hotel were almost over accommodating. They kept the pool open late for us, they also gave us a very late check out without a question. Awesome place.

Douglas C, Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your response. I am glad to hear that your experience at the hotel was so enjoyable. I am a little worried about your experience at the restaurant. The next time you come back I would ask that you give us another chance to blow you away in the Runway 29 Lounge like we did at the hotel.

Thank you for your response. I am very sorry that one of our team members spoiled your experience here. I have passed along your comments to the Manager in the Runway 29 Lounge so he can address it with the staff.

This hotel is a large older motel style complex. The rooms have low 9 foot ceilings but that's where the "old" stops. Extensive renovations and an eye for detail with amenities make this a hotel I would recommend. Perhaps the best part is the reasonable cost.

It was an okay experience. The hotel staff was courteous and the room was clean. It was very convenient to the hospital which was the purpose of my visit. I had a good nights sleep. Parking was the only issue but that was more due to the size of my vehicle.

MichaelSManager, Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your review. I appreciate you noticing that the room is clean. Our head housekeeper is excellent and she and her staff do a great job of cleaning the room with environmentally ozone which minimizes the need for harsh chemicals. I hope that you got the parking situation sorted out. We do have enough stalls for all of the rooms to have free parking, and we also have some stalls for larger vehicles such as tour buses and trailers, so I hope that the staff helped you to figure out a good area to park in.

We had a nice clean room. Great shower with great water pressure. Beds were comfortable with nice bedding and great pillows. Very good location for proximity to Kingsway Mall, and the Edmonton downtown core. We did not use any of the facilities such as the swimming pool or restaurant on this trip due to a very busy schedule with planned events.

The softest water you have ever had in a shower. Good room but difficult to find if you are not familiar with Edmonton. The only real compliant was the pillows on the the bed. Very hard and tough to get a good nights sleep but otherwise, a very pleasant, friendly place and right next to a Tim Horton for Breakfast.

Douglas C, Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS City Centre Inn, responded to this review

I had medical test at the Hys Centre so the location was close as well Kingsway Mall was across the street. Very clean and the staff was friendly. I liked the option of a pool, hot tub and workout room. And it has a Timmie's so very Canadian.

Douglas C, Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS City Centre Inn, responded to this review

13/06/2016

I stay in hotel's with work quite often so when I picked this one it was just because it was close to where my son was playing hockey. The rooms are all remodeled and very clean, everything worked well and the staff was friendly. The major issue I had is that the majority of this is an old motel that has be re-done to have interior walkway's to the rooms..... AKA it is still a motel so the price should reflect that. Also, the HDMI ports on all the TV's had been disabled so my son couldn't plug in his XBOX, the staff did their best to help but all the TV's they checked had the same issue.

Douglas C, Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your response. I am a little puzzled as to why your son's Xbox would not work. We do not block out our TVs. In fact we have several long term customers that bring in their gaming consoles and use them. Regardless, I do apologize that this happened. I know it affected your opinion of the hotel. Hopefully you will give us another chance to show how this property can really shine!

30/05/2016

My friend and I stayed in this hotel to attend a concert at Commonwealth Stadium. The hotel is within walking distance to the stadium (30 mins or so), or a $12 cab ride. We had very pleasant service by every staff member we encountered, from the front desk agents to the housekeeping staff. The hotel was clean, well maintained and the pool was definitely a plus. There are no signs regarding towels in the pool area, but you can take the pool towels to your room- and/or there is a changing area. We had a mini fridge and a nice bathtub in our room with 2 queens. I did find that some of the rooms had windows that seemed to look out onto the hallway which seemed strange, but our room had an outside view. There was wifi and a laundry room available as well, with fresh cookies for guests upon check-in. Tim Hortons attached was very convenient and the Kingsway Mall is steps outside the door, along with a Sobey's Liquor Store. I would certainly stay again.

Thank you, we work hard at constantly improving in the hopes that each stay will be as good or better than your last. Our repeat customers are our favourite and we appreciate the business.

"clean, not enough towels"

27/04/2016

I spent two nights here with one of my children, and two of our good friends. We were in a divided room, which gave us two separate bedrooms, very handy for non-family sharing. The room was very clean and comfortable, aside from temperature. The heating/cooling system only seemed to work on one side of the room. The bathroom was tiny, and there didn't seem to be a working fan in the space either. The front desk staff was friendly and pleasant. The Tim Horton's on site was terrible. Lacking in service speed, and sold out on many items, which was disappointing as I really wanted more than 2 options for hot tea. The biggest issue was the lack of towels in the pool area. The staff said that the hotel was sold out that weekend, so that's why there weren't enough towels, but honestly, that shouldn't have had them be out of fresh towels all 4 times I took my child to the pool area. As we were in town for a conference, and will probably be back, I'd love to see the hotel remedy this issue.

Douglas C, Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your response. Our housekeeping team prides themselves on ensuring our property is clean and comfortable. As for the towel issue we have learned from this and have a shipment of towels on the way! Your next stay there will be plenty of towels for you, your family and friends!

In Edmonton, I have stayed Sawridge Inn, best western south, and best western city centre. By far this BW city centre is the worst. It is not bad but to compare with others, room is too small. Parking is crazy crowded, breakfast is not included. Well It was a good experience to stay here but i wont come back here.

Douglas C, Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your response. I am very sorry to hear that you will not be back. The parking lot is often full because it is a busy property. I have never had to turn a vehicle away from our parking lot though. I wish you well in your travels and perhaps someday you will give the Best Western Plus City Centre Inn another chance.

Great staff , nice clean hotel. Close to Royal Alexandria Hospital in Edmonton. Easily accessible. I often use this hotel due to the proximity to the hospital. I would recommend this hotel to family and friends. It also has a tummies' attached so ease of use for the customers is a huge benefit.

Douglas C, Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your response. Earning your recommendation is the best award we can get! Having a Tim Hortons connected to the lobby is great for guests (and staff!).

Stayed here again, great hotel and close to amenities. Only down side is the fitness room is in an bsmt and the parking lot is tight. Would be nice if there was a continental breakfast. Overall though, a nice clean hotel and the staff are awesome!!

Douglas C, Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your response. It's great to have repeat customers like yourself. I hope to see you again soon.

Douglas C, Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your response. The divided rooms are great for families or people looking for more privacy in their rooms. A good night's sleep is what we aim for. Hopefully you will have many more to come at our property!

This is a great place to stay at in the city . It was very close to the hosiptal , and the mall is right across the street . The staff are very helpful and friendly . When we need a break from the hosiptal(Royal Alex) it wasn't a long ride back to our hotel . It is nice to be so close to everything .Great Location . We also took a swim in the pool and soak in the hot tub and it was very nice . Plus we got medical discount but we had to bring proof of our appointment. We really like this hotel alot. Thanks you to all the staff that are doing a great job .

Douglas C, Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your response. We are very close to the Royal Alexandria hospital as well as a number of other medical facilities including the Glenrose rehabilitation center, HYS center and Gimble eye clinic. After a long day of appointments the short back to the hotel and sitting in our hot tub can melt away the stress. I hope next time we see you will be for pleasure instead of appointments!

The staff here are always welcoming with a smile. Rooms are clean and comfortable. I would recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to Edmonton. Never had a problem and I will always stay here. Location is perfect, the mall is just across the street and they have a Tim Hortons on location for early morning coffee.

Douglas C, Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your response. Earning your recommendation and loyalty makes my day! The 24/7 Tim Hortons and quick access to morning coffee perks everyone up. The staff here love it just as much as our guests. I look forward to your next trip to Edmonton and earning your business by impressing you again.

Staff were friendly. Shower was NOT hot at all. This is the 2nd time we have stayed here and had the same problem in another room. We reported it last time and does not seem anyone really listened Rooms were clean. Internet was ok.

Douglas C, Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your response. I hate that we made you feel like we don't care. Our customer satisfaction is extremely important to everyone at the hotel. I am sorry that we have left you feeling disappointed twice now. I assure you that I am listening. I made sure to bring the hot water issue up to maintenance and looked up your previous stay to see if there was a connection. I know what it's like to wake up and not have a hot shower. I know that doing that twice to you has lost us your business. If you find yourself thinking of staying with us my name is Douglas and I can be reached at 780-479-2042 and dialing 0. I will be all ears and willing to make it up to you.

"Best BW in Edmonton"

02/03/2016

After several less than satisfactory experiences at other BW hotels in Edmonton, I decided to try this one and I'm glad that I did. My Diamond status was recognized immediately and I received the treatment that was sorely lacking elsewhere. The guest room was very well appointed, clean and comfortable. If you are a guest in the hotel, the upstairs restaurant (Runway 29) gives you a $3 discount off an already well priced breakfast. It has a fabulous view of the airport. What separates this hotel from the others is the acting general manager, Douglas. He is friendly, professional and exceptionally gifted at customer service. It doesn't take long to find out that his staff enjoys working for him. If you were to read other Tripadvisor reviews of this property, you'll notice that he replies to each review with personal responses that acknowledge the specifics of your critique, instead of the usual 'cut and paste' responses you often see elsewhere. He seems to really care about your experience. I highly recommend this property, when you have choices

Douglas C, Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your response. Your glowing review is EXACTLY what I hope to achieve in terms of customer service. I look forward to seeing you on a regular basis and making sure we earn your business every time you make a trip to Edmonton. In the current economy repeat business is more important than ever. Earning a guest like yourself who is friendly, open and encouraging means a lot.

We always stay at this hotel and are always pleased with the experience. The only downside is there are never any towels in the pool area and we have to go ask for some. The water in the hot top was also kind of slimy.

Douglas C, Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your response. I will make sure the front desk is looking after the towel supply a little better. There should always be some available for our guests. As for the hot tub the maintenance team usually does an amazing job on upkeep. I will pass along your message to them so we can continue to make sure the hot tub and pool area in general are in pristine condition.

Having to regularly travel to Edmonton, I usually avoid the downtown area as this is where I spend most of my time while here and want to get away from the noise and chaos. I don't like Edmonton in general. However, I was pleased with my stay at this hotel and will definitely book here again. Close to my office, across the street from the mall and restaurants, easy access to the core, clean, comfortable, friendly.

Douglas C, Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your response. I may not be able to change your mind about Edmonton, but I am happy the hotel has got your business while you're here. Let the front desk know what they can do to make your stay more enjoyable. This way Edmonton won't seem so bad!

I have never considered staying at this hotel when in Edmonton, but decided to try it for one night because it is a Best Western Hotel. I am totally impressed with the hotel, the room and the amenities in the area. I will definitely stay there again.

Douglas C, Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS City Centre Inn, responded to this review

If from outside you don't think this is a best Western - wait until you get inside the room. Everything is brand new, very quite, highly recommended. The AC is a bit noisy but my colleague from the next room didn't hear it. Walking distance to the Kingsway Mall where you have a tone of opportunities.

Douglas C, Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your response. We are constantly adding upgrades to our rooms. Our owners have the mentality of "if you aren't improving you are falling behind". This is what has kept us in business for so many years and will keep our rooms modern and functional.

This hotel is right across the street from the Kingsway Mall. I had my 80 year old mother with me and was able to walk to the mall with her for a little shop all while conducting my business. The room was clean and she loved the bathroom setup for ease of entry on the shower. I will be staying here again.

Douglas C, Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your response. We are right across from Kingsway Mall. With all the renovations they've done in the past few years it has become one of the best shopping destinations in Edmonton. It's great to hear you'll be staying with us again. Give us a call at 780-479-2042 and dial 0 to get the front desk. We can look up your information and get a new reservation made for you.

The hotel was clean and the staff were friendly and helpful. Very quiet location and the rooms were spacious and clean. I would recommend this hotel for families...nice pool and water slide. The hot tub was very clean

Douglas C, Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your response. That water slide is a lot of fun! Our maintenance team takes a lot of pride in keeping the pool, hot tub and water slide in pristine condition. Our guest's health and safety are always a top priority. We hope to see you again soon and we'll keep the hot tub warm and bubbly for you!

"Hotel was okay... but Tim's next door and close proximity to Glenrose Rehab Hospital was a definite perk!"

06/02/2016

Room was small, modern. Bed was on the harder side, room was on the ground floor - noisy with people walking and yelling in the hallway, and there was food cooking smells. Looks like the hotel is older, but had been redone. Pricey, at over $150 for the night with the AMA discount. Although the Tim's next door was a bonus, I wouldn't stay here again.

Douglas C, Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your response. I am sad to hear you wouldn't stay with us again. Hopefully there is some way we can change your mind. We're not usually a noisy property, but periodically we may get a few people who forget others are around them in the hotel. We have 24 hour desk service that patrol the hallways at night. If we happen to miss your noisy neighbours please phone down to the desk and we will make sure to quiet them down. While $150 may seem pricey at first glance we do not have any hidden additional fees like other properties. We have free Wi-Fi and free parking. We have a heated indoor pool hot tub and water slide. We also have a 24 hour Tim Horton's on site and our Runway 29 Lounge for dining.

The experience my wife and I had in this hotel was very great! Right by the hospital for my wife's surgery, friendly staff and a very positive overall stay. We enjoyed coffee at Tim Horton's restaurant, good express breakfast for $8.00 each in the restaurant/lounge upstairs and the laundry facility was a plus for us.

Douglas C, Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your response. I am glad we were to give you a positive stay during your wife's surgery. Tim Horton's is right in the building and is open 24 hours so everyone's favourite double double is only a few steps away! Judging by your score it looks like there may have been an accidental button slip and only gave us a 1 star. If not please let us know what we can do better to make sure your next stay is great!

Thank you for your response. The beds are very comfortable and we have won a number of housekeeping awards. Breakfast is an additional cost, but with us you get a freshly made full meal.

This hotel was a pleasant surprise, clean and super comfortable rooms, GREAT food in the lounge/restaurant upstairs, super fast room service and a Tim Horton's in the lobby. Great location across from a major shopping centre, from Yellowhead Trail and NAIT and straight down the road from City Centre. Great parking too. My husband says it is his new favourite.

Douglas C, Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your response. It sounds like you had a great trip to Edmonton. The Runway 29 Lounge offers great food. The Clubhouse Wrap is a personal favourite of mine. Make sure to try it out on your next trip! Location is key in our industry and we find we are a great vein to get anywhere in Edmonton as well as having plenty of destinations right beside us. Kingsway Mall, NAIT, AMA, RCMP K Division and the Royal Alexandria Hospital are all within walking distance. We're thrilled to be your husband's new favourite place to stay. Hopefully we'll see you soon.

Had to go to Edmonton for a doctors visit so we stayed at this hotel because of its proximity to the Royal Alex Hospital. The rooms were clean and comfortable, the kids loved the pool and the convenience of the mall being right across the street as well as a Tim Horton's next to the lobby is very handy.

Douglas C, Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your response. We are very close to the Royal Alexandria Hospital, Glenrose Rehabilitation Centre and the HYS Centre. It sounds like we were the perfect location for your trip to Edmonton, Hopefully the next time we see you won't involve a doctor visit and you can enjoy the amenities even more.

The front desk staff were brilliant and patient in accommodating my changing room requirements recently on a family winter weekend (I know: Edmonton??! We packed off to the Deep Freeze Festival!) Pretty quiet, except doors in the corridors occasionally but we slept well on comfy beds. Very clean, comfy big rooms. I thought the price was good and plenty of parking. Pool was a hit. The staff were all friendly and helpful - we felt very much at home.

Douglas C, Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your response. I am glad you came when you did because we were really a "Deep Freeze" a few days after you checked out! Despite the cold weather it sounds like you had a great time in the Festival City. Make sure to come again in the summer to check out some of the fun festivals Edmonton has to offer. The reception will still be warm and the weather will turn that way too!

09/01/2016

We stayed for 1 night with our 4 year old and 1 year old daughters at the beginning of January. We were pleased to see that the hotel was very clean, the rooms were nice and the pool was definitely a plus. Restaurant is upstairs and a Tim Hortons is on the main floor of the hotel. We enjoyed our stay, the only thing I would say that they could work on is more towels in the pool location, we did not get towels as there was none left and had to walk back to the room wet in our swim suits.

Douglas C, Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your response. It sounds like you and your family enjoyed your stay. I am sorry to hear that you and your family had to walk back to your room cold and shivering! We do our best to keep track of the pool towels, but if you find that there are none left please just give a quick shout to the front desk and they will gladly run and grab some for you. Walking from that nice heated pool without something to dry off with is no fun.

"Overpriced but great hotel"

06/01/2016

Can never go wrong with this hotel, but I find the price goes up every time I stay here...? The location is the main reason I come here, it is convenient and easy to get to where I need to be, so unfortunately, I end up staying here and paying the ridiculous cost. I also ordered room service, asked for the "build your own burger" and they put what they wanted on it anyway!! The food is pretty good, not great...

Douglas C, Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your response. I am sorry to hear that you think we are overpriced. The rates are set in order to make sure we can provide the service that makes our guests say that this is a "Great" hotel. The build your own burger is a guilty pleasure of mine. They do start with the basics of lettuce, tomato and onion on it and I can see where the mix up came from. I'll let the staff upstairs know to prevent further issues.

Though the room was a bit on the small side, especially the bathroom, everything from the walls, carpet, all fixtures were new or freshly renovated. Absolutely nothing to complain about. An easy walk to the mall across the street is the reason we stay there.

"Accused of smoking in room"

18/12/2015

The room had an odor, with bad sinus it is hard to tell if it was from someone smoking or the cleaning product they used. None the less I am a non smoker and I was accused of smoking in that room! which they charged my credit card $500!! Extreamly angry How do one prove they are a non smoker? Any way the charges were reversed but still Angry

Douglas C, Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your response. We have a strict policy on people smoking in our rooms. A lot of our guests are in for medical reasons and we have to take these situations very seriously. Please understand the damage that our property takes when someone smokes in their room. It upsets other guests and we potentially lose their business. The room smells like smoke for several days and extensive deep cleaning must be done to get the room back to a high standard of cleanliness. The $500 smoking fee is set to try and recoup these losses. We use eco-friendly ozone cleaners in all our rooms that do not leave a strong odor. The odor that was in your room was from cigarette smoke. I am very sorry that you felt like you were victimized. It is our policy to charge guests the smoking fee when their room smells like smoke. This also applies to the guests you allow into your room. You were a rare exception as I recall dealing with you during your stay here and I believe you when you say you are a non-smoker. This policy is not meant to offend or victimize people, but to ensure our guests have a wonderful experience and comfortable stay.

I'm a diamond member and travel mostly every week in Canada. i arrived on Sunday November 23rd 2015 at 10:30 pm. I was greeted by Winston who was very cheerful and checked me in. The hotel was busy and I was unable to upgrade, that's fine. I understand the hotel industry and was very happy with my room. The night staff is great, they monitor the front entrance and keep an eye who comes in and out of the front entrance. I felt safe and comfortable the entire time.

We stayed two nights. Very friendly staff from the front desk to the lounge. Tim Horton's shares the property so that is nice as well. We found the property and our room to be clean and comfortable. Our room had a nice lay out. We travelled with our kids so our room that was divided by a door into two separate bedrooms was great. This gave them there space and ours. We will stay here again. Great pool area for families to enjoy. Kingsway Mall across the road.

Douglas C, Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your response. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and were able to make good use of the pool. I'm not sure I know what you mean by "maximum price" though. Periodically there are web specials available if you qualify for an advanced purchase rate. These rates are great if you know for sure you are coming to the city. They are non-refundable and purchase is made at the time of the reservation so they may not always be the best option.

The Tim Hortons that is part of the hotel wouldn't serve anyone after 11 pm because they only had one staff member working and he said that he had to watch the back and couldn't serve anyone. After a long day of traveling and wanting to get a snack was VERY DISAPPOINTING.

Douglas C, Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your review. After speaking with you via email and getting more information on this incident I brought it up with the Manager of the Tim Hortons. Apparently there were two staff members that did not show up that evening. I don't believe that is a valid excuse and I hope this situation hasn't soured you on the Best Western Plus City Centre Inn.

This hotel is very clean, staff is excellent - called the front desk to see where to get ice and the lady working said I had to come to the Lobby but if I didn't mind waiting a few minutes she had to come over to my are of the Hotel to do a check and delivered some ice to our room. The Décor is nice and the rooms are set up so someone can be using the toilet or showering while another person can be getting ready at the sink as they are 2 separate areas. Excellent location, right across the street from Kingsway Mall and Boston Pizza and Moxie's is also in the same lot as the mall. I have stayed at this location before and have no complaints. We thought it was a little pricey but it is clean and location, location, location!

We had an appointment at the Royal Alex and booked here because of the convenience. We are so happy we decided to stay here. The hotel is clean and updated, the room was booked for 2 nights but we only needed it for 1night and the staff accommodated us willingly. Then we tried the Runway 29 restaurant. The steak sandwich with home cut cactus fries, homemade ranch and aioli sauce were out of this world. If you like butter chicken you must have it here, to die for. I highly recommend this Best Western to anyone.

Thank you for you review. Those Cactus Cut potatoes in the Runway 29 are delicious! My personal favourite is the Clubhouse Wrap. We do our best to help people out when they are in town for medical reasons. For most reservations we can refund or cancel your room if you check out by our regular, 11 am, checkout time.

"Best Western Review"

Staff are always helpful. Rooms are very clean and comfortable. Have stayed here many times and have never been disappointed with anything. Close to Kingsway mall and not too far from other places of interest

"Not for the business traveller"

I must write this quickly as the internet has been patchy and often disconnects. I was discouraged to find someone else's hair in the shower prior to me using it and being informed that breakfast was not included in the price of the room. I paid for the superior suite with a whirlpool and this stay has not proven to be worthy of the price. I genuinely would not recommend this hotel. The bed is very hard... certainly not the 'pillow top' mattress one would expect. Might as well be sleeping on the floor.

Douglas C, Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your response. I will let our housekeeping manager know right away about the hair. I am sorry it was left behind and we will be taking the steps to make sure no one else has the same experience. If you are having issues with the internet please contact the Front Desk. We pay a lot of money to make sure our internet does not have these issues. If Front Desk cannot help you we have 24 hour tech support to make sure we can find a solution. As for the beds I assure you they are all pillow top mattresses. I will have our maintenance team take a look at the bed to ensure it isn't damaged. Mattresses and pillows are always a funny thing because every guest has their own unique sense of comfort. I hope there's a way to encourage you to give us another chance so we can earn your recommendation.

The staff were so friendly and the room was quiet and clean. We stayed only one night so did not use the pool this time. Have stayed before at this hotel and the pool was great. The check in and check out were fast and efficient.

Douglas C, Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS City Centre Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your response. I'm happy to hear you enjoyed your stay, but I definitely think our big saltwater pool is calling your name the next time you're in Edmonton. I'll pass along the kind words to our staff. Those type of compliments always mean a lot.

We always stay at this location. The staff are awesome and the rooms are always very clean. You will never be disappointed if you stay here! We have stayed at other locations and have not been as happy as we were with this location. Wilson and Douglas were especially helpful and friendly.

Thank you for your response! Your kind words mean a lot, especially when you make the effort to get to know our names. I look forward to your next stay and making sure you and your family always feel the same way about our hotel.
