"Great Room "

11/11/2018

I recently spent two nights here at the Best Western on 8th Street. The king room was excellent everything about it was very good. Anybody that is stayed at a Best Western also knows that the morning breakfast is very good as well. They also have a decent-sized pool that I did not use.

Beautiful hotel with great service. The best Best Western we've stayed in and as a Diamond Member we've stayed in many! Would highly recommend this hotel to anyone. The location was perfect for our needs.

"Great price, great stay"

We stayed here for our honeymoon - as usual, we paid a great rate, had an extremely comfortable stay, and enjoyed the friendly, helpful staff. There's nothing more we could've asked for. For anyone who hasn't stayed here before, there's underground parking for smaller vehicles - super convenient. We also like the location - across from Indigo bookstore, Starbucks, and some other helpful business. It's a great location, and makes it easy to get to anywhere in the city. I also enjoy the option to have the receipt emailed - I like saving paper when possible.

"Excellent"

I was surprised how many times I had driven by this hidden gem without realizing it was there. It's conveniently located to shopping and restaurants. When checking in we we greeting by a large selection of big, delicious looking cookies. It is clean and bright with friendly staff. The breakfast room is quite large with many food choices. My room was quiet, comfortable and clean. I appreciated the Keurig coffee maker. Not fond of the motion detector bathroom lights which I couldn't seem to deactivate. The toiletries were ok but not extra special. There is a pool which I have heard good things about, but never tried. I have recommended this property to several people since I stayed there. I would definitely return.

Stayed here for one night while attending a wedding in the City. Staff are very friendly and try to be as accommodating as possible. Our room was large, with a nice comfortable bed. Place was quite quiet for a Saturday night. They offer you cookies and water in the foyer as you enter the building. Breakfast is good, lots of selections and a very clean setting. Two things to consider, getting into the place is via a very busy 8th street which poses its challenges. The check in time is 4 pm which they stick to unless you ask for an earlier time. We didn't think of it but next time will. Nothing to cry about for us just thought I would let you know just in case. A good stay by our standards.

This is a fairly new hotel, built in 2017 I was told. The decor is very modern and fresh. The staff were friendly at both check in and check out. The room had dark woods with gray walls, granite counters and tile floor. All areas were clean. The wifi was great, I was able to video chat with the grandkids. The television was big. There was a keurig in the room. The lights are automated and well as the door locks. Breakfast was plentiful in selections. They use real plates, silverware and glassware. There are several options for waffles: whipped cream, strawberries, chocolate chips. They thought of everything.The dining room was large and even had a fireplace. I slept really well. great Job Best Western!

20/08/2018

This Best Western Plus has so much going for it. Opened in 2015 but it looks almost new. Whoever designed the rooms has pretty much thought of everything, the first being lighting. So many hotels lack any overhead lighting but there are numerous can lights here and it makes a huge difference.Fantastic bed, wonderful sheets and maid promptly brought extra pillows when we asked for them. The standard king room is large with small refrigerator and microwave, good TV. There is an extra sink just outside the bathroom which is a nice touch. Wonderful rain-type shower (no tub, which is fine with me), better towels than many luxury hotels. Breakfast downstairs is quite good with usual options, nice breakfast room with coffee available all the time. Indoor pool which we did not use but looked really nice. There is a fairly large surface parking lot with overflow below-ground parking as well. This was our first visit to Saskatoon, and the downtown area/Shakespeare Festival about 10 minutes by car. Kudos to the BW Plus group for this property. It is a great value, and I plan to look for other "Plus" properties in Canada and the US. Highly recommended!

This was the best hotel of our 4 night trip to Canada. Our room was fabulous, extra sink outside bathroom helped us ready quicker for our early AM departure. Hot Pot and Keurig were such a treat!

We where dealing with the death of a friend and couldn't stay in the same room he died. We came in at 12 and it says they have rooms online but the staff were very rude and wouldn't let us stay even though we have booked a room and want to stay for a week.

"BEST WESTERN PLUS EAST SIDE IS THE EXCELLENT PLACE TO STAY IN SASKATOON."

27/07/2018

The most important asset of this hotel is its staff. The front desk staff welcomed us with smiles, friendliness, care, compassion and willingness to help at all times. The cleaning staff were very helpful and gave us lots of towels and whatever we needed. The breakfast staff were efficient, pleasant and hardworking to make sure that there was abundant hot feed available for us. I will give the hotel staff an A+ for our experience with them. We stayed at this hotel because we like Best Western Hotels. However, we got the best in location, staff and breakfast. Our son had a major surgery at the Saskatoon Ctiy Hospital and he came directly to the Best Western Plus from the hospital. The staff was most caring and made his stay comfortable by respecting his quiet atmosphere, allowing us to take food upstairs to our room and granting our requests for towels, etc. This hospital has the best staff and this fact matter the most to us.

We stayed here for 2 wonderful days. I had reserved an accessible room and it was just that fully accessible, including the roll in shower and shower chair. This was huge as I could actually have a wonderful shower. The hotel and room are very clean, rooms are large and continental breakfasts are wonderful. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Saskatoon.

15/07/2018

We found Jerry at check-in to be very gracious and professional--that is always a good way to start. LISTEN up hotels, motels, and lodges: First impressions matter! We find if the exterior is cared for and if the clerk is good at check-in then we are usually pleased with the entire stay. It just sets the tone. The lobby is attractive as is the breakfast room/area. Our room was spacious by modern standards and it was clean. Towels were rather plush too!

Away from the hotel zone but close to the mall and university and quick access to the city bypass this is a very nice hotel. Very clean and modern with all the amenities.

First, the good: - spacious rooms with high ceilings and good lighting throughout - window opens for fresh air - good beds & towels - microwave & mini fridge - lots of electrical outlets - alarm clock with USB charging - lit do not disturb indicator in hall (also a doorbell) - Starbucks immediately across the street - our 3rd floor room had a beautiful walk-in shower with glass doors - bacon at our 2nd breakfast - interesting b&w photos of historical Saskatoon, instead of hideous hotel art! Less great: - lots of noise leaks through the door from the hallway - cheap toilet paper - on our way home we stayed on the 1st floor and had a tub with a clingy shower curtain - I am not enthusiastic about the ham (gristly) or potatoes that they offer at breakfast

I always enjoy staying at this hotel it is clean and new. This time they had black raspberry syrup for the waffles, yummy! You got to do a little round about to get it but that is minor and I enjoy since I have a small vehicle that I can park underground. This time there was no cookies but it was late when I arrived to but usually there is flavored water and cookies when I arrive and that's nice too.

stayed as a team good breakfast, good pool (chlorine smell burned eyes) kids didnt last long. security guards stays in pool and watches feels awkward. very strict on rules as a team stay. let us use breakfast room to eat and vsiit very accomodating. Did not let us rent out meetings rooms on floor a little disappointing. clean hotel and in the middle of all the rinks and great location near mall and theatre.

GM_BW_PLUS_East_Side, General Manager at Best Western Plus East Side, responded to this review
Dear abtrhall, Thank you for taking the time to review and for your feedback! We are required by the health region to staff the pool at all times when the slide is on. Our group policies are in place to ensure everyone is on the same page as far as policies are concerned, and that all guests in the hotel are comfortable. We are glad you were able to use our breakfast room, its location makes its a more convenient place to gather as opposed to the meeting room which is located next to guest rooms and is quite a bit smaller. Thank you again for your feedback! Take care, General Manager

Staying at this hotel was a very positive experience. It's a fairly new hotel. My room was spacious and very clean. The front desk staff went above and beyond to help me out with a problem with some gift cards. The only negative was that the breakfast room was very busy and hot food supplies ran out. The hot water for tea wasn't really hot. But I would definitely recommend this hotel.

"Comfortable stay"

5
07/05/2018

We spent the weekend at this location. It was easy to find, but a bit tricky to get into if travelling from the wrong direction. The check in was easy, but the person checking us in really made it feel weird as he wanted to know which persons in my family were adults and children. My child is 6 foot so i get the little confusion, but never before have i felt awkward like that at a check in. We had the double bed room. It came with a fridge and microwave which we did not use. The beds were as comfortable as mine is at home, I like a harder bed with a soft padding and it was just that. The bathroom was usual and there was an added sink out side the bathroom which was useful. The only thing, the air conditioner was very loud, so it took some getting used to. The breakfast was everything you could eat, the first morning we has scrambled eggs, sausage, hashbrowns, waffles if you want, oatmeal etc etc. Second morning ham, cheese omelets, hashbrowns etc etc. Very good. The pool was good, even for my teens. The slide is fast and enjoyable, the hot tub was hot but a lot of chlorine so my eyes burned after about 10 minutes.

Dear allydrew, Thank you very much for your review and feedback! We ask for the names and ages of the occupants for a few reasons. One is for safety purposes so our in house room count list is accurate, another is to ensure that anyone in the room who comes to the front desk for an extra key is authorized to be issued a key to that room. We apologize if that came across as awkward as that is certainly not the intent. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again! General Manager

Stayed here as there is a shortage of top notch hotels on the east end of S' toon. Best Western was a good choice, close to the University and shopping and amenities on East side. Enjoyed our stray here, the fresh new rooms without carpet, no tub but instead a clean walk in shower, good climate controls, perfect bed, pillows and bedding, lots of plug ins for devices and personal affects, excellent breakfast, parking facilities and lots more that we didn't have time to try. Everything was great for a quick stop in town. Will stay here again when we come back.

This location on 8th was right across the street from the Mall and not far from the Preston shopping area and the Stonebridge shopping area. I was primarily shopping at home stores in this area. We were also there for a hockey tournament at the Jemini Canlan Sports arena and it was very simple to just turn onto the #16 which is right at the corner of this hotel and drive straight out to the arena. The breakfast was one of the best we have had! The hotel was quiet even with hockey teams and the rooms were very clean, I love that there is no carpet! There is a 7-11 next door which is very convenient for snacks and the movie theatre is just a block down the street.

"Great Location"

09/04/2018

Travelled with my mom (senior) and daughter (teenage), and stayed for one night (April 7th/18). It was a last minute trip to Saskatoon from Regina. Location was excellent, as our business in Saskatoon was all at the south end of the city (hotel is immediately east on 8th St. when entering the city from Regina). Hotel lobby was great - clean and spacious. Water, coffee, and cookies available at the lobby throughout the day. Rooms were clean, and modern. Beds were comfortable and pillows were fantastic! We did not have a bathtub (apparently you have to request those at time of reservation - but because it was a last minute visit, I didn't think to request one). Doorbells are pretty unique, and I did appreciate the laminate floors throughout the room (much more sanitary and clean). We did not have any issues with noise, as many have noted in their comments. We either lucked out (despite a solid booked hotel that night) or previous comments on this are inaccurate. We were on the third floor. Breakfast was actually one of the best continentals I've had at any hotel chain. Loved they had granola bars (nut free options for those with allergies), fresh fruits, hot/cold cereal, waffle bar, eggs, ham, potatoes, breads, bagels, etc. Toppings for oatmeal/waffles included coconut, berries, chocolate chips, dried bananas. Juices, coffee, milk, and teas. The only genuine issue I had (and I contemplated giving my review a "3 star" because of this) is the parking. We have a Dodge Ram truck, and I assumed I could park in the underground parkade. Upon arrival, I was asked what kind of vehicle we had. It was then suggested that we avoid the parkade as it would be pretty tight for my large vehicle. I was fine with that, and was assured we could park in the back parking lot. When we returned to the hotel at 10pm, the (extremely small) parking lot in the back was FULL. There was not one spot available to park. This parking lot was also very tight. Again, I stress there was NO PARKING available! The front "parking lot" literally had three stalls (all designed for small, compact vehicles), and one of them was handicapped. These stalls were also occupied. I ended up parking next door at JYSK, and worried all night about being ticketed/towed and vandalism. Because of the parking issues alone, I will likely not return to this particular hotel again, unless we arrived in a small compact car, or parking a vehicle was not an issue. For a new hotel, they completely failed with their parking lot designs.

Dear Tammy l, Thank you for your review and feedback! We apologize parking was an issue last week, it was very busy and a lot of extra vehicles were in the lot. Although we do have spaces for each room, we unfortunately do not have a lot extra and we apologize that you experienced one of these nights during your stay. We thank you for your great comments and feedback and are glad you enjoyed your stay otherwise. Take care, General Manager

"Super Awesome Hotel Stay"

06/04/2018

It's a great hotel. I love the location, particularly that a bunch of my favorite stores are nearby - Jysk, Indigo Bookstore, Shoppers Drug Mart, and Best Buy. I stayed at this hotel for an event at the Sasktel Centre, and getting to and from the venue was easy. I love the fact that they have underground parking; I didn't initially realize that, and it's at no extra cost. I love some of the modern features of the hotel, such as the electronic Do Not Disturb setup, though because there were so many high tech features like that, I was disappointed in the internet speed and the lack of USB charging ports. Using Ookla, I clocked the internet at 3mbs, with only 2 smart phones connected to it. I was hoping for 5-10mbs. As well, I only found 1 USB charging port. The lighting in the room was excellent; it's probably the best that I've ever seen in a hotel. It had lots of pot lights with easily reached switches, lots of lams, and 2 reading lamps on the headboard - super convenient. Check in was great and easy, and I liked that I had an option to have my receipt emailed to me at the end of my stay. The bed was very comfortable, and this is the first hotel that I've stayed in where there was a pillow option that didn't hurt my neck; normally hotel pillows are too fluffy. Our room location was great, and even though there were lots of kids in the hotel, the noise didn't seem to travel into our room.

We came for both business and pleasure. The hotel was very modern and clean. Breakfast was delicious with plenty of options of hot and cold foods. The pool was a perfect size - not too big and easy to keep a close eye on my two kids (ages 4 & 6). My older child loved the waterslide.

Excellent property and staff make you feel truly welcome and that you belong. Entry and elevator great and THEN I went into the room. Felt like a very high end resort with tons of room and everything you need for work and relaxing. The pool looked great and unfortunately I didn't have enough time to explore the workout room but it looked high end as well. Breakfast was a refreshing change with some additional hot and cold items you don't normally get with a hotel breakfast. And they have toaster that work well! Parking underground heated a nice bonus too.

Lemon water when you checked in, was a great idea, even a snack. The floor was not rug, just small mat by the bed. This made the room smell and look clean.The breakfast was the greatest, it had everything you needed.Underground parking is grateful for the winter.

Spent one night at this hotel en route to BC. Perfect location right off the highway, new facility, handy to shopping and restaurants. Check in was quick and courteous. I like that you no longer have to insert a card to open the door, just wave it near - much easier. Breakfast was decent, standard fare, perhaps a little skimpy on the fresh fruit. The big bonus - heated indoor parking! We could not understand why so many people opted to park in the lot outside in -20 temperatures when there was lots of room underground. We had no competition for the prime spot by the elevator. Would definitely stay here again.

"Great place for families to stay on the east side of Saskatoon!"

16/01/2018

This is a new hotel on the east side of Saskatoon with a very convenient location off 8th Street and Circle Drive. It is across the street from a mall with pretty much every store you'd need on your visit to Saskatoon, as well as restaurants, movie theatres, and a Starbucks! The McNally Robinson bookstore is within easy walking distance from the hotel (highly recommended for book worms), as is a liquor store. Saskatoon has needed a hotel on the east side for years and I'm glad to have such a good one as this Best Western. It has a swimming pool with a water slide, as well as a hot tub and a fitness room. Drinks and snacks are readily available at the front to purchase, and ice tea, cookies, and apples are available free of charge. The hotel also provides a very good breakfast served in the morning until 10am, with eggs, sausage/ham, waffles, bagels, toast, cereal, yogurt, and so on, as well as coffee and juice. Everything was new and well taken care of. The rooms were well appointed and a decent size, with tile flooring rather than carpet, and 12 foot ceilings! Given the -30C temperatures during our visit, we appreciated the underground parking which we were provided at no extra charge. The staff were friendly, prompt, and professional. The hotel has some rooms for pets, if you bring your dog or cat with you. Highly recommended. We will definitely stay here again!

27/12/2017

Our greetings from the lady and gentleman on Reception at arrival were wonderful. Very helpful and efficient check-in. We were advised of the free undercover car parking with elevator access and subsequently we always parked there easily. 2 Elevators. A very new hotel and all areas spotless and bright and attractive. The fitouts so comprehensive I suggest it could be used as a template for new hotels. 1 King bed, 2 bedside cupboards, bedhead reading light wands, 2 suitcase racks, 2 lounge chairs and footstools. Good lighting including sensor lighting in the bathroom. An electric jug/kettle and Kourig coffee maker, Mini frig and microwave. There was a vanity sink in the bathroom - thankfully, complete with make-up mirror but also a separate sink outside bathroom in an alcove. This was handy and hygienic for hot beverages etc., I hesitate to say I only missed one thing in the amazing room. A vanity bench underneath. I thought it could have been fitted in when hotel built and they are always good for the clutter travellers inevitably have. Apart from this it had everything and then some. Impressive. We saw the pleasant and efficient Housekeeping staff out and about and were always asked did we need anything. The breakfast room was light and spacious with ample food and good hot and cold options. Our stay was fantastic.

19/12/2017

Trendy hotel, very new. Decent parking in back, great breakfast. A little challenge on busy 8th street to swing into, but once you offload your stuff, its a nice place to stay at. Our check in was a little slow, must have been short staff,so we waited our turn to get checked in. Rooms very clean and modern. Downfall was the rooms are laminate floor, which i get for ease of cleaning, but you slide around if youre wearing socks! There is a small carpet runner between beds tho. Large breakfast area, as we seen its a good place for birthday party weekends, or team stay over. We had a hockey team stay on our floor and found it to be very quiet. Found the pool area with waterslide great for the kids, not a lot of seating for the adults if youre there to hang out and watch, but thats minor. I can tell you this, the pool area, can be extremely noisy, with a lot of kids in it having fun, which is fine, but the room's design, concrete walls, and no sound barrier ceiling, make it really echo. Bring a good book, and your ipod with ear buds, and that all tones down. Comfy rooms, nice design,and little extra make this a good stay. You are located on one of Saskatoon's most busiest streets, so if you need anything, youre very close, if not in walking distance to anything. Fuel stations, hiway connections with Circle Drive, a medi clinic nearly next door, and not to mention countless eating establishments and a major shopping mall across the street make your stay a bit more bearable.

My son loved the pool, its well maintained. Breakfast is all the same as any other BW hotel that we've been too.

The cookies are a nice added welcoming touch along with the drinks. This is one hotel where one is made to feel welcome and they make the check-in personalized. There is parking underground and outside once one has checked in. We book the king room and there are two shelves/night tables attached to the headboard. There are outlets and switches built into this extended headboard. An alarm clock is provided along with a safe. A chair and foot stool are included in the room. A desk/counter area line one wall. There is a place to store the suitcase. A Keurig coffee machine with coffee/tea and supplies. There is a microwave, mini fridge, drawers, and desk chair. The television is conveniently mounted on this wall above the counter. The room has a walk in shower with lots of room and towels. The washroom is well stocked with supplies.

I go on a business trip every 2-3 months. By far this one was the best I experienced among ten other hotels in different Canadian cities. High ceiling and modern design keep you zestful. The best thing? Cleanness Any complaint? Let's say the air was dry :))

This hotel was located right off the highway at a good location close to restaurants and other shops. It was exceptionally clean and quiet. They actually had full size bath towels. The ultimate was the in ground parking. It was snowing when we arrived and to be able to park inside and then the next morning our car was dry and warm when we went to our appointment. The only negative was the breakfast. Prior experience and comments from friends had me expecting a very good breakfast. But it was very disappointing. Hot food that was cold, bakery items that did not taste fresh and some items not well stocked especially during the busy time, the room was full of people. I do hope they improve this aspect of the hotel then it will be my number one stop in Saskatoon.

Stay one day get billed for two and get told "that's how it is".... Place is clean, breakfast was overcooked, eggs were precooked and drier than the bottom of my shoe. Eliptical trainer battery died while I was on it and the clerk asked me how I broke it.....I explained that the display was battery operated and in broken English she told me I would have to pay for the damage......I refused becasue I didnt damage anything, the battery died. I replaced the battery and showed her, she still tried to tell me I broke it....

A nice, clean hotel. Staff were friendly and helpful. For breakfast Kitchen area was clean and had the standard fare. The lemon mint water and cookies in evening are always welcome.

Dear Bernie S, Thank you for your review and feedback. When guests extend the stay we try very hard to make sure they can stay in the same room, but sometimes when it is quite busy that is not always possible. All of our rooms are the same size and priced the same, the differences are in the number of beds and shower/tub. We always offer to assist with any room moves so I will be checking into why this service was not offered to you, I apologize that you did not receive assistance in your move.

The hotel is definitely on the newer side, and the lack of carpet in the rooms keeps them looking new and clean. The hotel has a modern feel to it. The breakfast had a lot of selection and ample seating in the area. Parking wasn't even a problem on a Saturday night. The only downside to this hotel that we found is the noise from the hallway comes right into the room, and the pillows were far too soft. A much firmer selection would have been nice. We for sure would stay here again, do to the value, cleanliness, and great location.

This is a new hotel some staff need extra training but all was fairly goof. If you need a freezer there isn't one in their fridges but at checkout I learned the have a place they can keep things frozen for you. If you stay there for a medical reason just ask the medical dr for a note stating you had an appointment , surgery etc. They will ask you for it and they keep it or photo copy it for their files. If you have an issue talk to management at checkout of before she is very good at sorting things out.

"Nice place but clueless"

23/09/2017

Hey! You can park underground here. When I asked how to get there I was told just around the back. You get in and no signage telling you if spots are reserved or where the elevator might be - just a lot of brown doors to open or try to open one at a time until you find the elevator. Here's an idea. GET A MAP and hand that out to your guests so they know where the one elevator is in the place. Secondly - and this is a deal killer to me - the wireless would not let me even get a login screen without refusing the connection. Nothing wrong they say but no experience or clue from the front desk. The other 50 or so WiFi connections I have made with my phone previously means that my phone works and I know how to connect. So the problem is at their end but like I said the have no clue. Lastly... the tile floors are super noisy or I have the big foot family above me. Why tile the entire rooms floors? Just odd in a wooden stick built bulding. Nice place if no neighbour's upstairs or you don't park underground or use WiFi

The room was comfortable as was the bed and pillows. All amenities were in excellent working order. The breakfast area was clean with friendly staff & had many selections to chose from. The traffic noise is the biggest downfall if placed on the side of the building across from the shopping area. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Upon check in the staff where smiling and kind and extremely helpful. They didn't treat my check-in as routine, but like I was a valued guest. The room was immaculate and very modern. There was no bathtub, but a shower with sliding door. It was fine for us but some might prefer a tub. Breakfast was good and the breakfast room is a good size. Other Best westerns have a small cramped breakfast room, but this one is large with nice large windows. It would be nice to see a variety of fruits or vegetables at breakfast. Maybe a fruit cup. This location had a wall of things for purchase displayed next to the front desk. Snacks, and small items which can be charged to your room. Very handy. Check out was easy and the checkout staff was kind, and smiling and seemed genuinely interested in helping me. This was my best Best Western stay.

"Dirty bed sheet...and horrible management"

27/08/2017

Not sure what else can be said about this... I found blood stain on the sheet, took pictures and call the reception to let them know how disgusting I was and the front desk staff got mad at me for being upset at the situation and after almost an hour she sent a security guard with sheets!? I'll never stay in a Best Western ever again. The fact that their cleaning staff only made the bed instead of changing the sheet is outrageous, is this a standard policy to save time and money? how many other room are like this, how many other unsuspected guess have slept in dirty sheet without knowing. I would've slept in dirty sheet if I didn't see the blood stain on the sheets. But on top of that your night front desk employee was useless to say the least...just unacceptable! I wasn't expecting this from a Best western PLUS that received a diamond award for 2017?? Yes I didn't pay for the room but I still ended up sleeping with all my clothes on, on top of the sheet because I didn't thrust anything after what I saw. I'm just thankful my family wasn't with me. They offered me the equivalent of a $50 gift card they can keep it and use that money the changed their sheets...

"Newer hotel at an affordable price!"

25/08/2017

I stayed at the Best Western Plus East Side Hotel for 4 nights on a business trip. This newly built (2015) hotel was affordable (CAD 145/night) for its condition and compared to older Best Western hotels. The rooms here are large, clean and very modern. I was on the 4th floor (highest) and away from the elevators, therefore my stay was very quiet. The hotel is located in College Park neighborhood which is southeast of downtown Saskatoon. There is no on-site restaurant; however there are several restaurants and grocery stores walking distance from the hotel. The lobby and breakfast area at the front is large and welcoming (lemon water and cookies upon arrival). Several computers and a printer are available for guests to use, as well as a laundry room. There is a small-sized fitness room, indoor pool and hot tub located on the 1st floor. Complimentary breakfast is offered from 6 -10 a.m and includes cold and hot items such as yogurt, cereal, muffins/pastries, toast/bagels, oatmeal, waffles, eggs, bacon and sausage. My room was large, clean and equipped with black out shades. The room decor was very modern. Room amenities: - Alarm clock - Mini fridge - Microwave - Coffeemaker - Keurig style - Working desk - Free Wi-Fi - strong signal - Flat screen TV - Hairdryer - Ironing board Room ventilation included a wall-controlled AC which regulated the temperature efficiently. Conclusion: I really enjoyed my short stay at the Best Western Plus East Side Hotel – mainly because of the hotel's newer condition, location and complimentary breakfast. The Good: - Large, clean, modern rooms - Convenient location - Complimentary breakfast To Improve: - Fitness room to include free weights

This hotel is still relatively new (less than 2 years old). My daughter raved that it was the best Best Western she's ever seen (and if you browse my reviews, you'll see she's stayed in a lot of them). The views aren't great (7-11), but you are close to lots of shopping, restaurants, and Circle Drive. I wasn't sure about the non-carpeted floors. I worried about noise transfer from above, but we didn't hear any of that. The street out front was the biggest source of noise all night. The cool kids in Saskatoon obviously like those noisy muffler things. The pool was nice, and the LED lights changing colour were fun at night. The staff was friendly. We loved that the breakfast extended until 10 AM on a weekday so we didn't have to rush to get out of bed while we were on holidays.

We stayed here for 3 nights while in Saskatoon for a multiple family anniversary weekend. We wanted to be close to our son's and granddaughter's homes so chose this hotel. It was a pleasant surprise all around for us. The staff was extremely pleasant and most helpful in all respects. The room was pleasantly appointed and very clean, even down to a sterilized remote control for the TV. The floors were laminate and were washed daily so your slippers and sock feet remained clean. The beds were excellent ( I have a bad back) and I woke up with no pain. The morning breakfast provided a wide selection of foods from hot to cold fare and there was no shortage of any item. Floors, tables and counters were kept clean even though there were multiple guests at any one time. We will certainly stay here again when visiting Saskatoon.

Awesome hotel! The front desk guy was super friendly and very accommodating to our needs with our two dogs. Our rooms were very fresh and the beds were meant for sweet dreams. They offered a hot breakfast that is second to none. We had to pay a bit more cause we booked it online so I recommend calling the hotel directly especially if your bringing pets. We will definitely use this hotel when in the area.

We stayed at this hotel numerous times since it opened and it is great! We utilized the breakfast, the pool, the fitness centre and the computers.

29/07/2017

Stay was excellent up until check out when we were rushed out of our room by 2 phone calls from front desk. The hotel was not full and we were only 15 mins past check out. Front desk lady was very rude.

GM_BW_PLUS_East_Side, General Manager at Best Western Plus East Side, responded to this review
Dear karennR7702VC, Thank you for taking the time to review. The front desk will call the rooms after check out to see if the guests have vacated and to give housekeeping the go ahead to begin cleaning. It had been indicated that you only needed a few minutes more so a second call was made to check the room. Had we known you were in need of 12:00 pm check out there would not have been a second call until then. We are always happy to accommodate late check outs whenever possible. I am sorry for the miss communication in arranging the late check out, but happy to hear that you were able to check out at 12:00 pm as needed. Thank you again for your feedback and we are glad you enjoyed the rest of your stay! Take care, Courtney Morrison General Manager

"Supposedly pet friendly, but not friendly to pet owners"

25/07/2017

They phoned us on the day we were supposed to arrive to tell use that they didn't have an available room for us because we were bringing our dog with us. Although the hotel advertises itself as being pet friendly, the fine print says that only certain rooms are actually pet friendly (and apparently they don't save those for people with reservations). No apology and no offer to help find alternate accommodations. They didn't even seem to understand why we might be upset that they didn't have a room for us...

GM_BW_PLUS_East_Side, General Manager at Best Western Plus East Side, responded to this review
Dear Sean P, We are very sorry for the frustration you experienced. We make very sure that our pet restrictions are made very clear during our reservation process and our own websites. Unfortunately we can not control how a third party booking site presents this information or how they write it in their fine print. The room you booked was booked into our system as a non pet friendly room from the third party booking site. When booking third party we always recommend calling the property to confirm what has been booked especially if there are special requests. We are attempting to work with Expedia and other third parties to come up with a solution to make our pet policies and restrictions clearer on those third party booking sites. We apologize again for the frustration you experienced. Safe travels, Courtney Morrison General Manager

Brand new hotel - nice modern rooms and decent sized pool for the kids to swim in. Underground parking was nice - the outside parking is tight to fit larger vehicles.

The staff were very friendly and helpful! The whole hotel seemed very clean. Our room was very clean and had nice decor! They had a large variety for breakfasts for regular people. The pool was not overly cold and the hot tub was nice. My only complaints were that there were not many gluten free breakfast choices, and that they need sound dampening materials in the pool area. The one night the pool was packed with kids, and it was extremely loud in the pool area. We would definitely stay here again!

The Best Western East is conveniently located near circle drive on 8th Street East. Close to many restaurants, shopping and entertainment venues. The hotel is very new and modern with full 6 foot showers in each room. The provided continental breakfast was great with an incredible selection of fresh warm food. Plenty of seating area for everyone so it never became congested. There is provided underground parking which keeps your vehicle out of the elements and secure. Staff was very friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay in this hotel again which was priced very reasonably.

"Higher Than Average In Some Areas, Lower In Others"

07/07/2017

Finally, Saskatoon has an East Side hotel! Great location close to freeway access and shopping. Service from staff is very good. The hotel itself is clean, modern and new with good amenities. The main problem was with a couple of little things in the construction/design areas that made for a less than perfect stay: 1. Noise. The floors have no carpets and the flooring appears to be laminate tiles. There was a late check-in above me that woke me from sleep at 1:30 am till I finally complained at 2:00. I could hear every thudding footstep back and forth, doors & drawers slamming shut etc. The complaint was handled immediately though. 2. Motion detector light in the bathroom – not great if you have to use it in the night. Although you can the turn the light off, the damage has been done. 3. Extremely noisy, spartan, cafeteria-style breakfast room that is chaos around the centre island. One busser working extremely hard to clear trays of used dishes. Kids running down the narrow aisles avoiding seniors' mobility devices. ONE choice of eggs: cheese omelettes – not a hard-boiled to be seen. ONE choice of meat for each day: sausage or sliced processed ham. Overall my experience was of higher than average value in some areas, less than average in others. A rug or two in the guest room, self-controlled bathroom lighting (perhaps with a dimmer), and sound-absorbing curtains or baffles in the breakfast room would help considerably.

Dear rods686 Thank you for your detailed feedback. We appreciate all comments so that we can provide the best guest experience possible.

Thank you for your feedback on our complementary hot buffet breakfast, we always appreciate comments on how we can make it better.

"Great place!"

06/07/2017

Think back to days of yore, car trips with the family. You know that BW smell and the funky carpet, questionable bedspread, and sporadic AC? That's not here. This place is gorgeous! I loved . . . -- The tiled floors (vs carpet), even though it might be a bit noisier for downstairs neighbors -- The glass enclosure of the walk-in shower -- The "doorbell" that is actually a doorbell, but also the do-no-disturb and housekeeping-please indicator -- The second sink outside the bathroom -- Loads of overhead lighting and nice bedside lights, too -- Lovely bedding and towels -- Cookies in the lobby -- TWO washers and dryers - clean and high-quality! -- Helpful staff, front counter to the dining area and housekeeping -- Ice machines on each floor -- The slide tube in the pool (although we just watched, didn't use) Not as crazy about . . . -- Upstairs neighbors' footfalls (couldn't they have built this NEW hotel with concrete floors??) -- The motion sensor light in the bathroom; I get the purpose, but who wants bright light in the middle of the night? -- The motion sensor on the thermostat; again, I get the purpose, but it got really hot during the night. Either provide standard bedding that isn't a fluffy duvet, say a cotton blanket, or let the AC stay on all night! -- Why is the microwave on the bottom shelf of the dresser / TV stand? Why not up a shelf so you don't have to get on hands and knees to use it? Go back to the I-loved list. Those are the great things about this place.

We were told this place opened in late 2015, and it still seems brand new. We got a room with a walk-in shower, which was much nicer than the standard shower. Front desk was helpful, as expected. We did not try out the breakfast, so cannot comment on that. If we come to Saskatoon again, this is the place we'll stay.

28/05/2017

We arrived at check in time, 3pm and because we were in town for an awards gala (my daughter was nominated for an education award)and we were in a hurry to get ready and off to the event. I'm not sure why, but we were placed in the room right beside check in desk (110). I had dropped my keys on the floor and when I went to collect them I noticed large food crumbs all along the bottoms of the bed. With us just arriving and not having had anything to eat yet, i knew it was because the room hadn't been cleaned very well. At that point I should've said something but we were in a hurry to get to the gala at TCU to register my child for 4:30. We didn't arrive back to hotel until almost midnight. Exhausted, we went straight to bed. I noticed in my bed, the sheets and pillows smelled like someone had been in them before me... like someone else's oily hair. I was disgusted but at this point, too exhausted to bring the matter up with staff. I slept on top of the blankets and the pillows remained on the floor. The walls seemed paper thin and I heard everything that was going on in the lobby. Any one walking past I heard their conversation. And when people started making their way to have breakfast or possibly checking out at 6am, it woke me up. Needless to say, I had a horrible sleep. When the kids awoke, being the curious creatures they are, searching around the hotel room found the ice bucket (which we hadn't used) was half full of water. I didn't complain about any of it, because i knew it was likely too late. I was exhausted and had a drive back to Regina I needed to conserve my energy for. Overall I was very displeased with the cleanliness of the room. For the price paid, I expected alot more comfort. The hotel staff were professional and friendly and it was an added bonus of convenience to have breakfast included, but not enough for me to stay here again.

The hotel is very modern and clean. The rooms were beautiful and spacious, with very nice high ceilings and a nice cozy feel in terms of decor. We stayed using air miles and check in was seamless. Staff were helpful and friendly. Parking can be a bit of a challenge if it's busy, but they do have an underground option for cars/SUVs which was great on the rainy night we stayed. The pool area appeared nice but was very busy as their were a ton of families with kids around. The hotel does not have an "adults only" period for the pool or hot tub. Breakfast was delicious and a full spread of food. There was lots of seating available and the room is very spacious. Bed was very comfortable and had all the best amenities. Overall very impressed. The one less star was with the parking as they could probably use a little more space for that.

"Fell Below Expectations"

14/05/2017

Wont be staying here again. They advertise underground parking but the space wasn't developed wide enough to accommodate vehicles like trucks. The "High Speed" Internet that was advertised is quite slow. I am not sure if this was because their was a large group of people staying at the hotel or not. Poorly insulated walls led to my family hearing the occupants above and below us. The first night we arrived after an 8 hour drive.. we actually received a complaint about us because my 1 year old was making too much noise. They sent up a security guard to our room who demanded that we keep our child quiet. It was a humiliating experience to say the least. A phone call to the room would have been sufficient enough. All in all I will be staying elsewhere next time with my family.

GM_BW_PLUS_East_Side, General Manager at Best Western Plus East Side, responded to this review
Dear Guest, We are very sorry that your experience with us was not a positive one. We do value all feedback positive and negative so that we can improve our guest experience. As you can see from many other reviews we do aim to provide superior customer care. We do have high speed fibre internet that does perform well even when the hotel is busier so we will definitely be looking into any issues that could have been happening during your stay. Our underground parking is tighter for very large vehicles as many underground parking for hotels areas are, we like to make guests aware before they go down in case they would prefer to park above ground instead. It is certainly not our intent for the security staff to come across as negatively in any way, and I am sorry this was your experience. Thank you again for your valuable feedback and we wish you luck in your future travels. Take care, Courtney Morrison General Manager

My wife and I stayed here for a family event. Rooms were nicely sized and very clean. Breakfast was great. Location was perfect for what we were there for. Went to the business centre to print out some legal papers and our boarding passes. The printer was out of ink and there were no extra cartridges. We had to send our print jobs to the front desk who then scanned them for us. Seemed quite cumbersome but appreciated the clerk's efforts.

This is a new hotel and things are in great shape. The best part of this hotel is the lighting. No dull light and lamps. Bright lights embedded in the ceiling. This was impressive. I am tired of dark rooms and the best western has solved this. Hotel is clean and should be because it is new. I noticed they have security and the hotel was quiet. Close to great food on 8th street and a movie theatre just a block away. Close to main highway and downtown in 15 minutes.

This is one very clean and beautiful hotel...Maybe because its 'new' but i did enjoy my stay and i will definitely stay here again. For what i paid, the room was very large. i like the concept. The floor is not carpet (which i personally like). Staff was very friendly. Got a cab ready for each time i needed to be out somewhere. The location is awesome too. There is a Starbucks across the road. Compared to the other hotels I've stayed in Saskatoon, this one takes the lead at the moment.

"Excellent accommodation, most comfortable beds, lovely well appointed rooms!"

22/11/2016

Excellent location, across from shopping mall and close to many good restaurants in close driving distance, 20 minutes from airport. Very friendly staff, right from front desk to housekeeping and breakfast area. We really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend!! Most comfortable beds and pillows, housekeeping staff right on your every need! Excellent choices for breakfast! It was a nice getaway as well as a visit with family and friends. Fresh baked cookies in lobby in the afternoon, nice touch, and wonderful cucumber/lemon/lime water on ice, yummy.... and healthy! The only complaint we had was the pool area deck was very slippery, more so than any other hotel we have ever stayed at. 2 of our family members slid and fell when climbing out of the pool via the stairs. My sister in law was injured. The staff was alerted and even though they do their best to try and keep it dry its still gets wet every time one steps out of the pool. She was offered a $50 credit voucher by the desk staff, which does not make up for the medical expenses she will incur due to the fall. There will be more done to contact hotel owner and discuss further...The hot tub was much to hot 105-106 the day we were there, normally it shouldn't exceed 104. We alerted staff but didn't go back in. With those exceptions all else was great and we would stay there again if ever in Saskatoon again.

"If you don't sleep deep...."

15/11/2016

My biggest issue with this hotel is how paper thin the doors are - to the hallway and to the room connected to it. Also, if possible ask for a top floor as the noise above with thumping and running was very loud. I am shocked that such a new hotel didn't feel it needed to put in any type of sound proofing. There are no carpets in the room either so nothing dampens the noise in this place. You'd be fine to stay here through the week but staying on a weekend when it is full and when there are hockey teams in is a bit of a nightmare. The hotel does not seem to feel it needs to worry about the noise until after 11 am. Again, it was extremely busy on the weekend and had to wait upwards of 10-15 minutes for hot items to arrive and they seemed intent on not putting out too much food at any given time regardless of how many people were there. The beds are comfortable and the rooms are well laid out and clean. The buffet varied daily and had a good selection of foods from yogurt, oatmeal, cold cereal, toast, waffles, eggs, hot meats and good coffee. It is close to numerous restaurants and coffee shops (Starbucks is across the street). Be wary if you have allergies as we did take our pet (and cleared it ahead of time) but were told later we were given a room that actually wasn't for pets! You could do worse to stay here but be wary of potentially not sleeping well if it is busy!

GM_BW_PLUS_East_Side, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS East Side, responded to this review
Dear allaboutthesun246 Thank you for taking the time to review and to let us know that you found the noise an issue! The hotel was built with detail to sound proofing especially in the flooring due to the fact we chose not to put carpet in the rooms. During your stay the hotel was especially busy and when that happens we endeavor to monitor the halls with more diligence. I am very sorry that we fell short while you were with us. Our noise policy is that noise is to be kept at a reasonable level at all times and at a minimum after 10:00 pm. I will definitely make sure that this consistently the case. We take our pet policy quite seriously for the reasons you mentioned, additional deep cleaning procedures are used in unique instances and in pet rooms. Thank you for mentioning your experience in the breakfast, busy weekends definitely keep the breakfast room very busy so we appreciate all feedback in that area. We are glad you enjoyed the selection of items! Thank you again for your feedback, we will be using your comments to help us continually improve our guest experience! Take care, Courtney Morrison General Manager

"Surprisingly great hotel!"

12/11/2016

I say "Surprising" because in general, I don't like hotels and rarely stay in them, preferring more privacy. But, we were travelling from Edmonton to Winnipeg, and then back again, so Saskatoon was going to be our stop-over place going to and coming back from Winnipeg. I chose this hotel because the ratings seemed good, and to be honest, I could book it using Air Miles that I'm trying to get rid of. We were impressed from the moment we checked in. The nice gentleman at front desk was delightful. I wish I'd written down his name so I could give him a special shout-out. Check-in was uncomplicated and quick. Out room was very comfortable. Nothing fancy, but clean and everything in good repair. Very comfortable bed! Free breakfast was great!! Fruit, yogurt, hot selections -- a protein (bacon one day, sausage on our return visit), egg, and potato. Lots of bread selections including muffins, english muffins, bagels. Two toasters, lots of toppings. And two waffle makers that looked like lots of fun, but ... The area was kept immaculate, and everything topped up. The lady looking after the breakfast area did a fantastic job. Thank you. Check-out was as pleasant and professional as check-in. Again, I didn't get the names of the two ladies who looked after us on our two visits, but they were great. I have to make a confession: There is a Keurig in each room and pods of coffee (of course). However, I prefer my Starbucks coffee, and when I travel, I sometimes bring my own. This was one of those times. So, on the morning of November 9, I made my coffee (using my own pod) and then forgot to remove the pod from the machine. Housekeeping likely saw that none of the hotel's pods had been used and would probably not have looked inside the machine. So ... if you stayed in room 221 on the night of November 9, and wanted coffee the next morning -- sorry for the "surprise" I left you. That was my carelessness -- not housekeeping's. It's centrally located and close to shopping, restaurants, all services. Great little hotel and we would stay there again without hesitation.

The Best Western Plus East Side in Saskatoon is a very comfortable, luxurious hotel in which I spent one night. The service is exemplary. The breakfast was very enjoyable. I liked the atmosphere. The location was perfect, being across from a great book store which I visited three times during my stay. I took in a movie with family at the movie theatre across the street and was able to browse in the Mall there. I would certainly consider staying again and would recommend to family and friends.

I had the pleasure of staying here for 2 nights at the end of October. The check in was super easy and they accommodated my request to have a room close to my brother and sister-in-law. The bed and pillows were really comfy and the room was quiet all night. Housekeeping staff was friendly and the room was immaculately cleaned. The complimentary breakfast included eggs, bacon, potatoes,cereal, waffles,toast, yogurt and much more. The breakfast room was large and the staff worked very hard to replenish food, etc. The only thing I didnt like was that the light in the bathroom was motion activated, and I don't like bright light in the middle of the night.

I went up to Saskatoon for a concert and looking for a different hotel as the ones downtown near the concert were quite expensive and older. Checked this one out on Trip Advisor and decided to give it a try. I'm so glad I did. It still has a new smell to it. The rooms are very modern with grey tones; exceptionally clean; tile flooring; fridge, microwave, safe; and so-o-o comfortable beds with beautiful sheets and comforter. Although it's on 8th Street, the rooms are quiet and they have black-out curtains that ensured I slept in. The room is an adequate size but not large. It has two sinks-one in the bathroom and one outside and all the amenities usually in a hotel. Check -in and out was friendly and convenient. Staff seemed to enjoy working there and it shows. Although it is not near downtown, it's a quick convenient drive. It is also near to the highways and has a great shopping centre right across the street as well as just about any type of restaurant that you might want on 8th Street.

I stayed here as I was driving from Edmonton to New Brunswick. It's a brand new hotel with underground parking and away from the downtown area (and the many homeless wanderers). I felt that my vehicle was safe in the secure underground parking as that was a concern for me travelling alone. Lots of restaurants, grocery stores and bars in the area and a Starbucks right across the street. My hotel room was really great, I thought they upgraded me or something because it was really swanky and a huge TV. The beds are super comfortable, I felt like I had the best sleep of my life there! The service was great at the front desk. The continental breakfast was really good in the morning, with fresh hot items.

On Sept. 9, I had occasion to stay at the Best Western East Side since I had a meeting to attend there. What a great hostelry!!! Since this is one of a spate of new hotels recently put up in Saskatoon , rooms were pristine. No scarred paintwork, dirty carpets and scratched furniture here. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Check in was smooth. Everything ran like clockwork. The complementary breakfast was superb. Sausage, eggs, waffles, cereal, toast, bagels-you name it; it was there. I would rate this stay as a 9.8/10. It really doesn't get much better than this. Highly recommended

"Nice new hotel, housekeeping needs to step it up"

08/09/2016

We stayed here 2 nights. We booked a king room for 1 night and ended up coming to the city unexpectedly the night before. We werent able to have the same room because all the king rooms were booked up. So we stayed in a double queen. The rooms are nice and new, we found 3 hairs stuck to the shower walls though. It was about 11pm when we checked in, so we didnt complain. The next day, we checked into our king room. The room was not vacuumed, crumbs and what appeared to be pubic hair on the floor. The sink drain was stuck and wouldnt drain water. We complained and they moved us to another room. That room had a short, black curly hair in the bed. We complained and were moved to another room. That room was clean, thank goodness. The staff was very apologetic. We had set up a late checkout for the next day - it even was stated in our confirmation email from the week before. The front desk called us at 11:05 to see if we were extending our stay. The hotel is new, hallways were vacuumed, has a nice underground parkade, decent free breakfast and handy location. The hotel has lots going for it, but the housekeeping staff needs to step it up! Im unsure whether we would stay again.

We all love this hotel, and my Mom did as well; we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The breakfast is varied for every taste, the pool is always set to the perfect temperature. The hotel is close to Circle Drive, so driving to the airport is quick and easy. It's super clean, the beds are very comfortable and the staff are friendly, informed and accommodating. Easy access to multiple amenities.

A very good hotel on the east side of Saskatoon. It has very comfortable beds and large walk-in showers. They have a nice gym, indoor pool and underground parking. The breakfast is fantastic. All rooms have laminate flooring which is a bit different. Overall a great place to stay.

Lots of problems with this hotel...Staff could not understand our questions or guide us to; the pool area, the back door of the hotel to get to the parking lot. Floor plan is very hard to get around in. Parking lot in front of hotel is poorly designed. Only one way in, one way out with no signage as to enter or exit. What a bottle neck of traffic. We did not enjoy our stay there

I've been using this hotel as my home base while getting my kids set up to attend University of Saskatchewan. It's conveniently located across the street from a shopping mall, relatively close to the University, and on a main road that has many restaurants, grocery stores and gas stations. I had my 2 small dogs with me on one of my trips, and the hotel was very accommodating of them. I appreciated the abundant free breakfast which offered dairy free and gluten free options upon request. I also made good use of the small gym, laundry facilities, business centre and in-room fridge and microwave. The hotel is very clean and staff are friendly and attentive. I will continue to stay at this hotel whenever I'm visiting my kids in Saskatoon.

We booked through air miles which must have been the reason we ended up with this view. The hotel wasn't fully booked so I'm sure there must have been other rooms available. Anyway, book a room near the back as ours was at front and a lot of street noise from 8th Street. Clean, new and spacious rooms. Breakfast, pool is fantastic. Cookies up front although tray was always empty when we walked by.

The a/c worked beautifully and wasn't too noisy. In the morning we were so impressed by the wide selection of healthy breakfast items laid out in a large clean breakfast area. Would definitely stay here again!

"EastSide Best Western"

02/08/2016

Over the last 40 years, I have stayed at many hotels for both business and personal stays. I can honestly say that this hotel and the hotel room more specifically is the best I have had the pleasure of staying in. It was large enough to accommodate two lounge chairs and foot stools which made watching TV much more pleasant that sitting on the bed. There were several pot lights that fully illuminated the room making it bright and pleasant unlike many of the rooms I have stayed in before. And in the day with all of our electronics, there were more than adequate plug ins and USB charge outlets to accommodate all of our electronics (phones, ipads, etc.) The breakfast areas was very large and had plenty of seating. It had full wall to wall windows on two sides allowing making the room bright and airy. There was lots of variety of foods. We did use the pool and hot tub. It is perfect for both kids and adults alike. The pool had a water slide that the kids enjoyed and the hot tub was hot and relaxing. I can assure you that this will be our hotel of choice whenever we visit Saskatoon again. Thanks for a great stay.

23/07/2016

A new hotel conveniently located to Circle Drive. The hotel has lots of families, but little was heard of excited children when in the room. It was a weekend, and the indoor pool was well used. The rooms were well laid out, and the 2nd sink just outside the bathroom was a bonus. A full cooked buffet breakfast was included - it was good - about what you'd expect on a buffet. Lots of free parking, both indoors and outdoors. The complementary wifi was rock solid on our room. There is no lunch/dinner service in the hotel, but there are a number of restaurants nearby. The only downside was the very efficient heating/air conditioning unit. While it was controlled by a wall thermostat, the unit was located beside the bed with a strong airflow going across the bed. The louvers in the unit are not adjustable, so when it is operating and you are in bed, you are in a draft. As the visit was in July, it was in air conditioning mode and the draft was very chilly. Adjustable louvers would solve the problem, as would a deflector. We deflected the draft by placing the two room chairs in front of it while sleeping - not ideal as they restricted access to one side of the bed.

I happen to be a smoker. Any one that knows me knows I will not throw a butt on the ground. They are put out and put in my back pocket. When I went to the room l threw them in the garbage. They now want to charge me 350 for smoking in room. They can talk to my lawyer. Can't charge you on assumption.

21/07/2016

The hotel is fairly new but is very clean. No carpets in the rooms helps with this. I found the rooms somewhat sterile with a bit of a depressing colour scheme and the window was small. The bed was comfortable. We stayed 3 days. Housekeeping is competent but perhaps a wee bit aggressive to get into your room so make sure you light up your :do not disturb" sign. The pool had a nice water slide but the water was in serious need of changing. There was so much chlorine in the pool it burned my eyes quite a bit. Changing the water more often makes it look and feel less like a toilet. The breakfast was included in the price and was reasonably good. The desk staff was friendly and helpful. Someone put a 6:00 am wake up call on my room that we didn't ask for so perhaps the desk staff need to be a bit more attentive to tasks. The hotel is close to a wide variety of restaurants and shopping.

11/07/2016

I very much enjoyed my stay at this hotel. I was in Saskatoon for work and stayed for one night. This hotel is very new and modern, and it shows. I was very surprised by how beautiful and modern the room was, with grey tone cork (I think it was cork) floor and no carpet (awesome). I expected the floor to be cold but it was not, to my surprise! The room was super clean, very modern, the bed and bedding were very comfy,the bathroom was very nice and had a large shower with glass door, loved all of it. The location is pretty good, there is a strip mall across the road that I didn't explore, but I did spend time at the Starbucks and the massive Chapters/Indigo store. There is underground parking but I was driving a half ton Dodge pickup and figured I wouldn't fit underground, so I parked in the large parking lot in the rear. Tons of parking there, very happy to see that. The only downfall is there is no restaurant or lounge at this particular hotel, so I drove to a nearby restaurant for dinner (Moxies). The continental breakfast was included in my stay. I personally wasn't a huge fan of the breakfast, but it was pretty good for a hotel breakfast. I would prefer a meal rather than the pre-made packaged microwaveable breakfasts (for eggs anyway), but it was decent enough to grab and go. There were other options such as cereal and fruit, but I prefer eggs for breakfast.

My husband and I were in Saskatoon for his medical procedure. The front desk attendant was wonderful, very attentive to our needs, moving us closer to the elevator in anticipation of difficulties after my husband's surgery. Very kind and professional as were all the guest services people we encountered. Our room was very posh, well appointed and comfortable. We enjoyed the pool and hot tub. The breakfast bar is amazing, lots of choices, fresh and tasty. My only disappointment was I left a note requesting extra decaf coffee, creamer and sugar. None was left and the paper cups we had used were not replaced. The barely used lotion, conditioner and hand soap were removed and new amenities placed. Although I had hung towels to be reused these too were taken and replaced with clean ones. Wasteful. But this is a fabulous choice and I highly recommend it to everyone!

"Beautiful and new, and they have cool door bells!!!"

18/06/2016

We checked in on a Sunday night just after getting married. I admit that I was probably as excited as a child as I discovered the door bells they have for each of the rooms. The cool thing about them is that they have light which indicated to the housekeeping staff whether you need service or not. The bed was super comfy. The temperature in the room was perfect. It was clean and super modern. I really felt like I was staying in a luxury room even though it was just a standard room with a king bed. The room had super high ceilings and the art was actual black and white photos of places in Saskatoon, which I thought was a really cool touch! I loved that the room just had a shower as I prefer to shower over taking baths. I would like to mention that perhaps putting rubber strips at the bottom of the glass doors like there are on the sides would help to keep the water from the shower in the shower and not on the bathroom floor. I also liked that the room did not have carpet, just vinyl flooring. I think this is much easier to clean and gives the room a much nicer look. Breakfast was just great the two days we had it. The seemed to switch up the options between days which is so much nicer when you are there for multiple days. The pool area was super clean and quiet. It made sitting in the hot tub super relaxing! The staff there was very friendly and accommodating! I apologize to the front desk staff for paying with about five different gift cards! It was a really great stay! Thank you! :D

"Too many cancellation emails"

16/06/2016

Got tickets for Garth Brooks, and booked this thru Expedia. All was good, except 2 days before we leave, I got email from hotel, stating they cancelled our rooms. I was so mad, picked up phone and called and was assured that we still had our rooms and got the confirmation numbers. Then the morning we are leaving another email stating they cancelled our rooms. Got to the hotel, checked in, and about 3 hours later another email stating they cancelled our rooms. Very frustrating, seeing we were already in our rooms. Room was still dirty on check in, and the last persons hair still in bathroom. on the plus side. Bed was comfortable, breakfast was awesome. Eggs, sausage, hash browns, yogurt, cereals, toast, bagels, fruit, coffee, tea, juices. Very well done breakfast area, lots of seating. As for the pool, don't expect to drink or eat around the pool area. Not allowed. Such a shame as there was never anybody using the pool or hot tub. We used briefly, as we like to have a beverage to two while in the hot tub. Now I get the "no glass" in the pool area, but no drinks or snacks? Come on!! And Garth Brooks was amazing!!! Also the cookies in the lobby were delicious, and the lemon/lime/cucumber water very refreshing.

GM_BW_PLUS_East_Side, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS East Side, responded to this review
Dear Brenda B, Thank you for taking the time to leave us feedback! We are confused about your cancellation emails as well. Typically when you book with Expedia all correspondence comes to the guest from Expedia only, as much of the personal information is not passed on to the property. If you have time definitely give us a call with some more details, so we can try and figure out what caused that. I have sent your comments regarding your room to that department to ensure proper coaching is done. This is not our standard I apologize we fell short in that regard. We are staffed 24 hours a day and are happy to take care of any issues you may have as soon as they arise. Our no food and drink rule in the pool is to ensure health and safety in the pool area, as there is not a separate eating area away from the pool deck. Spilled food and drink make for a dirty pool deck as well as it can upset the water chemistry resulting in a closed pool. We are very proud of our clean and well maintained pool area. Thank you again for your review and take care! Courtney Morrison General Manager

We were quite impressed with how nice this hotel was. The lobby was lovely, but the room impressed me as well. The floors did not have that awful carpet most hotels do. Instead it was a nice smooth tile like floor that my husband and I really liked. I felt like it would be easy to clean and I didn't question that it was (unlike nasty carpets). The bathroom had a wonderfully large walk in shower, and for someone with a disability like my husband, it was perfect. I also like the motion sensor lights. My husband was impressed by the quality of the tv (not that we watched much) something about dual channels and really clear high quality. The bed was also very comfortable. Had a great night sleep. We did not use the pool or continental breakfast.

We stayed at this new Best Western while in Saskatoon for Garth Brooks! The front desk attendance was very friendly and helpful. She advised us that we had enough points to redeem for our nights' stay. That is the first time any attendant has ever checked for us! The breakfast the next morning was excellent. Food was fresh, tasty and nicely presented. Will definitely stay here again!

This hotel is almost new. Good location and the staff are nice. Breakfast is included and is pretty good. I do like the underground parking nice touch. The rooms are good, I do find the beds a little hard but that's a personal preference. This is the 3rd stay here and we have got the same room all 3 times. What are the odds lol

A great location across from the mall. The hotel is new and the rooms are a nice size with high ceilings. Infused water and cookies in the lobby. Free parking, wifi and breakfast. The floors are a little noisy and I would recommend not having a room by the lobby. We could hear everyone coming and going. Breakfast was especially loud and the laundry room was right across from ours, so that was loud too. If we had a different room my review would be better.

New hotel so nice surroundings. BUT handicapped room had no bars around the regular height toilet and the shower was not a roll-in type and had sliding doors on it. There was a chair to set in the shower but lifting someone from a wheelchair onto it would have been difficult wit the shower doors. Also, while the bed was comfortable, it was high and difficult to get into for a person with mobility issues.

23/05/2016

This hotel appears to be very new. We were not sure how long it has been open. Very modern, stylish decor. Room was clean -- especially the bathroom. Hard floors in the rooms which is so nice instead of carpet. I am sure much more sanitary. Breakfast is provided and has a lot of variety. Our only complaint is that the air conditioning did not work. Pool and small waterside are decent. It was a very hot day about 28 C. The room was uncomfortably warm and the teeny window was not enough to cool it down. I don't mind the heat, but my kids and husband found it intolerable. Our young daughter had to get up early to play 3 hockey games. It was unfortunate that she could not get a decent sleep. We were offered 10% off our bill. Nice gesture, but it really didn't help.

We stayed there for one night and the room was beautiful. It was exactly what we wanted. Breakfast was really good as well. Only thing we didn't like was that the walls were so thin that we could hear ppl outside in the morning and the view was crappy. The location is perfect. It's right but the main road that takes you anywhere in the city and it's surrounded by tons of things to do and eat. Overall it was a great experience.

We only stayed one night at this hotel. The hotel doesn't look like much from the outside, but the rooms are new, modern and spacious. The beds and pillows were very comfortable, probably one of the best beds I've ever slept in. The room is spacious and I liked the fact that there was no carpet, so the floors seemed exceptionally clean to me. The pool area was clean and bright and easy to access. Didn't have a change to use the fitness room but it looked to have newer equipment and would have been great if we were there longer. Staff was courteous and pleasant and checked us in and out quickly and efficiently. The hotel will put a $200 hold on your credit card. The included breakfast in this hotel is really quite good with hot and cold items. Eggs, sausage, potatoes, oatmeal and make your own waffles. Bread, bagels, English muffins, cereal, yogurt, juice. Everything was fresh and quite tasty. Parking is available at the back of the property or they also have an underground parking lot. There is a mall across the street with some nice stores if you need to do some shopping. I would definitely stay here again on future visits.

The breakfast choices were excellent- hot and cold, I can't say I've ever seen a better or more varied breakfast at a hotel. The pool area was very clean as well and the kids spent as much time there as they could playing on the waterslide. The hotel is in a great location, a mall and Tim Hortons very close by.

This is a very new hotel and it shows. The hotel is very clean, and the hotel staff are excellent. The rooms were large and well laid out, with 10 power outlets readily available for charging accessories, phones and tablets. The Internet was flawless, as was the breakfast. The shower was very large and did not have a lip to step over. The bed was very comfortable. The only problem was street racers on 8th Street between 1 and 3 AM, which obviously was not a hotel problem. Excellent choice and well worth the money.

We stayed at this hotel while driving from Manitoba to Edmonton. We booked the hotel knowing it would be our night's rest - halfway point of our trip. We were pleasantly surprised with the high quality of this hotel and will definitely be returning. The front desk staff was accommodating and welcoming. The room was spotless and very comfortable. The pool area included a waterslide, pool, hot tub, and lounge chairs. Although the hotel was fully booked and the pool was busy - noise levels were fine and we had both a fun and restful stay. The continental breakfast was great. There were choices for everyone. The food was hot and fresh and there was smoke seating for everyone. We look forward to returning to this hotel.

First of all the location is perfect, coming from Regina. But more then just the location, it is the best Hotel we ever stayed in Saskatoon. No wonder the call it the Best Western Plus. It was clean, quiet and very important the bathroom and shower was super. Every body in our group loved the very generous breakfast.You could get anything you wanted.

After traveling 6 hrs.... Kids wanted nothing but food and a pool. Got to this hotel realizing I had booked the wrong day when doing online. The hotel was booked solid so as I scrabbled online looking for availability, one of the staff members ran outside to find me as to tell me they had a last minute cancellation and she rushed to find us in the parking lot!!! She then booked us in and gave us a discounted price as well!!! The hotel was in excellent condition!!! Very clean rooms, excellent pool and food!!! The staff was beyond friendly and extremely helpful!!!! Would recommend to anyone!!!! Thank you again to all the staff especially the one at the front desk.

It was the best of times. After being left on our own to find another hotel to stay in Saskatoon, after the Best Western Blairmore debacle We went to look for another property within easy commute of the Courthouse. We noticed another Best Western off the ring road, and thought we would give it a try. The hotel was brand new, the desk clerk was welcoming, and was able to give us a very nice room for us and our dog, at about the same price as the Blairmore. We were shocked to find out that both Hotels had the same owner. I suppose when it came to hire staff for the Blairmore, they had used up all the good personnel for the East Side property. Every thing was new, extremely clean and high tech. They served a good hot breakfast. The property was quiet and convenient to downtown and the "cool" Broadway corridor in Saskatoon. Every member of the staff greeted us with smiles and hellos. it was a very pleasant experience. When we return to Saskatoon later in the month, we will gladly stay there again.

I found this hotel thru air miles. I looked at the reviews and because it was new, we decided to book it. Upon entering the front doors, you are greeted by a clean modern look. Front desk staff was efficient and courteous. We were offered underground parking and told about the free continental breakfast. After attending the Rush lacrosse game we drove back to hotel. Getting into the parking garage was easy and there were lots of stalls. Being secure was nice, very important if I'd been by myself. Our room 225 was great. High ceiling, big room, very long desk/dresser with TV, microwave, mini fridge, Keurig coffee maker and a safe. Room had a thermostat which is so nice. Best feature was NO carpet on floor. Beds were very comfortable with four pillows per bed. We would definitely recommend this hotel. We will be back even if we have to pay. (131.00 plus tax) two queen beds with free parking and hit continental breakfast.

This is a new hotel so its understandable that is nicely appointed and everything is new and fresh, but we were amazed at how comfortable the room and the bed were. The room was at perfect temperature when we arrived and not even looking for a thermostat, it stayed at a perfect temperature all night. The room was well lit, unusual for a hotel room, and spacious. The walk-in shower was bright and cheery and the room had all the amenities including microwave, fridge, and Keurig coffee maker. Breakfast even included real bacon, although a little cold, that was quickly rectified in the microwave. The only shortfalls we could have asked for improvements in was the slow WIFI on the 4th floor and a little deeper hot tub.

long time reader, first time review. front office and cleaning staff were very friendly and took care of our questions.

I have let the hotel know about this.

Dear Robert B Thank you for taking the time to review us and we are glad to be your very first review! Our staff will be happy to read your kind words. We do enforce the no food and drink rule, as we do not have a separate area in our pool area for food and drink to be. This is to keep the pool and pool area clean and safe. Being as it is difficult to determine what is being brought in to the pool for beverages we installed a water fountain inside the pool area that has a part to fill water bottles if you like. Previous occurrences have made this policy a necessity, and it is found to be easier to keep the rule as simple as possible and the same for everyone. Which in the end keeps the pool and pool area clean and safe. Thank you again for your review and safe travels! Courtney Morrison General Manager

The hotel is conveniently located across from a shopping centre. The rooms accommodate our family and have all the hotel extras. We find the lack of carpet in the room to be a bonus as it ensures that the floors are cleaned and cared for with all the changes of weather SK experiences. We have not yet had the opportunity to check out the pool or water slide. However our young children really enjoyed the complimentary cookies in the lobby.

Stayed here on a business trip - had a block of rooms booked for employees. Hotel is very new - modern - and very clean. I got a ground floor room, 110 I believe, with two queen beds. Room was spacious, enjoyed the fact the floor is not carpeted, pillows were very comfortable (colleague of mine actually bought some) and so were the beds - a comfortable night stay. I didn't use the pool - but the area looked nice and clean. I did have breakfast - it had both hot and cold options, and was a good way to start the day. The hotel is located across the street from a mall and also an Indigo/Starbucks - and is also just off the circle drive. It's a handy location if you're travelling to other parts of the city. Did not use the underground car park, as it was mild outside. I would stay here again when it town for business.

The hotel is located right across from a fairly large mall with a decent food court and decent shopping. Great if you need a few things at the hotel. We stayed on the first floor and it was really convenient but ended up having noisy neighbours above us. (Really noisy). Anyways, I would stay here again in a heartbeat but would ask for a top floor. The rooms were very clean and beds were comfy. I have not stay at a Best Western before but would consider again after our stay here.

The hotel was nice and clean. A very modern appearance. We enjoyed looking at the portraits hanging in the lobby and in the hallways depicting Saskatoon history. The only thing we didn't like was that there wasn't a bathtub option given to us, only a walk-in shower and that the pool was very visible to the street which made it uncomfortable for us to go swimming in private.

"Very nice"

16/02/2016

Pros: - clean, new, fresh - I like staying in new hotels the always feel clean - the underground parkade - very nice to have in winter - free breakfast - we only stay at places with breakfast included - pool & waterslide & hot tub - clean, not over crowded - the mattress was very comfortable, pillow was fine there seemed to be soft and hard ones I think - covered entrance - it was snowing when we arrived so it was nice that we could park and not get snowed on while we unloaded outside - generally the hotel was quiet, only one time did we hear some giggly girls being noisy in the hallway, but that lasted less than 5 minutes. The first night the parkade and parking lot was pretty much full so it's not like the hotel just didn't have many guests. - the door bell system - it was cool to have a light outside your room that turned red to indicate do not disturb and green to indicate service needed. In our last hotel in Saskatoon they did not clean the hotel room one day and so I don't want to go back there. There is only one thing you do to my room (clean it) and the other place failed. - lighting - man this hotel had more room lighting than any other hotel I've ever stayed in. It was really nice to have a selection of lighting from LED reading lights to overhead pot lights. - Long desk surface. There was a long desk/dresser surface that was great for putting stuff on. - Big glass shower - we had a room with a shower only but it had huge glass doors and was really roomy, clean, and bright. Cons: - heating unit - it ran a fair bit at night the first night and I woke up with a really sore throat due to the air. The second night I turned the unit totally off and did not have a problem. - pool attendant - oddly enough the pool attendant didn't seem to care about the kids who went down the waterslide on a chain, but did care if you brought in a paper coffee cup. Don't bring in paper cups, they're bad! - bed linens were not real soft, they were kind of hard - no EV car charger - the Best Western in Regina has 3 chargers and two other hotels in Saskatoon also have them. If I'm staying more than one night I can stay anywhere and if not I will stay at another hotel. Please add a charger or two so I can always stay at your hotel in the future. We did not turn the TV on so I can't comment on that. We sat on our iDevices on the WiFi if we were in the room LOL. The free breakfast items were the same as every other hotel with a free breakfast that we've stayed at. It was missing a better selection of instant oatmeal and pancake maker, otherwise all standard items. This hotel is my new fave in Saskatoon and if they'd add an EV charging outlet or two I'd be hooked for many years to come.

Dear MooseJawDude, Thank you for a wonderful and detailed review. I loved reading this as it highlights all the things we are trying to do right but mentions some really great ideas for improvement. I agree that EV charging outlets are of growing importance, and I hope to have more specific information for you in the near future! Thank you again for taking the time to review and we hope to see you again soon! Courtney Morrison General Manager

Upon check-in, I was greeted warmly by both Dorys and Vanessa. Due to this being a new hotel, everything is fresh and clean. The only complaint I have about my room is that there is no carpet, so it made for a bit of a wet mess due to winter boots. I enjoyed having underground, heated parking. And I also enjoyed the breakfast buffet. It's a great location next to a mall, restaurants and a theatre. I look forward to staying here again.

Dear Moe2931 Thank you for a great review! We are glad you enjoyed our hotel amenities, especially the underground parking and breakfast in the morning. We are staffed 24 hours a day so if you need a hand with some clean up after being out in the snow make sure to give the front desk a call. Thank you for mentioning our staff, they will be very glad to hear you mentioned them! Safe travels, Courtney Morrison

I stayed in the Best Western Plus East Side back in December and it really stood out for me as being a great place to stay. I had my family with me and we had a great time! As soon as I arrived, I noticed was how immaculately clean the hotel was. The lobby, the hallways, our room, the pool area... spotless! The staff was very accommodating and courteous, always smiling. I have been in the service industry for twenty five years, so I can say with utmost confidence that the service was beyond reproach! They went above and beyond to ensure a most pleasant stay. We also thoroughly enjoyed the pool! The temperature was perfect and we loved the water slide. Breakfast was excellent, something there for every taste and it was well prepared. Being so close to amenities and easy access to roads that will take you to the rest of the city was an added bonus! I have recommended the Best Western Plus East Side to my friends as a great place to stay while in Saskatoon and will continue to do so. We look forward to our next visit! Well done!

Not allowed to take bottled water into pool area. Told I have to drink from the fountain. Sorry but I'm a germaphobic. Not very accommodating so can't recommend this place. But otherwise rooms are nice. Overpriced. First time staying here. Much better places in the city

Stayed at the best western east side in Saskatoon January 28-30 2016. Hotel is very clean, bright with very nice decor. All staff from the front desk to cleaning and pool staff were all very nice and friendly. Pool is very nice and water slide is a blast. Both the pool and hot tub were at perfect temperatures for my liking. Room was again very clean, modern and bright. Stayed in a king room and loved the shower with sliding door (no gross curtain) and the absence of carpet is a definite plus for me, just makes it feel clean. Breakfast was very good, more than I usually expect from a hotel and had a lot of options. Free underground parking is a very nice option. I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it.

The hotel is new and clean. Staff were courteous and helpful. There are a number of restaurants within walking distance. The room was spacious and the television was large and allowed screen mirroring for my Smartphone (allowing me to access my Netflix account and watch it on the big screen TV). Free breakfast was better than average with choice of hot and cold selections.

I have stayed in a lot of hotels and nothing compares to this one! The hotel was very clean, and to us as a family with young children that is a huge MUST. We have stayed in hotels where cleanliness was not a priority. The rooms were amazing, I loved how the ceilings were so high, made the rooms feel so spacious. My kids had a blast in the pool, they couldn't get enough of the water slide. It's close to many restaurants and the mall for shopping. Great location! Breakfast was awesome! the waffle maker was a real hit! overall this hotel is in our top 5 and we would absolutely stay here again. I highly recommend this to everyone. Also the staff were super helpful and polite

Stayed 2 nights here (Jan 2016) and the rooms are all new and clean. Comfy bed, big TV screen, free wifi, fridge, microwave, free breakfast, and easy to use adjustable heating. Unlike many hotels in Saskatoon they have underground heated parking. Just need to get the garage door working with the room keys. I had to get help from the commissionaire every time, but he was very friendly and happy to help. There's been an absence of hotels in this part of town for too long. Happy they've chosen this location. Reasonably priced too. I will definitely stay here again!

Overall this was a good stay. We stayed for 4 nights with our kid as were in town for a funeral. Very clean hotel. Room suited our needs. In room microwave and fridge a plus! Beds were great. Fully equipped gym. Pool was ok, but as others have said the security was overbearing as they watched for any wrong move by the kids and jumped on the parents even before parents had a chance to talk to their own children! They need to lighten up a little, and be polite! As parents we understand the rules but let us have a little fun!! Breakfast selection was quite good. Most things tasted very bland and the scrabbled eggs were overdone and powdery. 2% milk was always empty. Kids liked the Waffle station. Front desk staff were friendly and accommodating.

The minute you walk into this hotel you can tell it is something special. From the friendly staff to the cleanliness of the entire hotel i was very impressed. Underground parking was very welcome with the cold weather, washed my truck before parking and it was dry by morning and not frozen. Very good breakfast with an upscale type restaurant feel, bright and inviting.

"Cola Drinking TV Watching New Years Eve Rebels!"

Pool attendants really need to loosen up about no drinks in pool area! While kids are enjoying the pool it's nice to sit at one of the patio tables enjoying a coffee or bottle of pop. Funny thing is that the pool police gave me heck for a cup of Coke while being oblivious to the table next to us with an open beer bottle under a towel, excellent work Sherlock!!! In my view it's much worse to allow street shoes and winter boots. Not to mention no enforcement of several other rules or attendants looking at their phones. Also a bit ridiculous to have security at you door at 11:15 on New Years Eve when the only thing going on was a family (2 adults and three kids ages 8-12) watching New Years Countdown. Other than that, new and clean. Great underground parking and complimentary breakfast.

I stayed in room 405, it was away from any traffic, front doors etc. If I wanted to park at the side, front or even in the heated underground parking lot- there was always an elavator. its close to almost every you need in the area, from access to highway to lunch and dinner options, fine dining to macdonalds.
