We stayed one night in August - 4 people in 2 rooms. One room was a "Queen Suite" with 2 queen beds, and the other a room with a single king bed. The hotel is across the Peace R. just west of the main town in a newer developed shopping area. It's fairly new. Reception was friendly and quick. Our rooms were main floor on the front, right on the parking area. They were very nice, especially the suite which had a 2 TVs and a nice sectional corner sofa. There was a small table & 2 chairs, microwave and small fridge. There was a business desk and chair. An iron and board were in the cupboard. The beds had lots of pillows and were very comfy. The heating/cooling unit worked well. The king room was also very nice, but without the sofa and 2 TVs.
The breakfast area in the lobby was large and well stocked. There were hot breakfast items (eggs, etc.), waffle makers, toast, juices, etc. The lady keeping it clean and stocked does a great job!
There is no pool, but there is very nice exercise room with a hot tub room adjacent.
There's a good restaurant next door called Mr. Mikes Steak House, with a liquor store in the same building. There's a Tim Horton's, Shoppers Drug Mart and Walmart close by.
NOTES - the hotel appears a favourite with big rig truckers and there were many trucks in the parking lot, and truckers at breakfast. They appeared to be hotel 'regulars' and it made the breakfast area boisterous around 8 am. Also our suite was directly adjacent the lobby entrance and there were two ashtrays just outside the lobby doors - with our room window open the smoke blew in! I phoned the desk and they asked the smokers to move. Management should prohibit smoking adjacent to the rooms. less
