We're here for the Fire and Ice Speed skating tournament and we chose this hotel because it is attached to the Servus Place Arena with a pedway! A great place to stay if your kids are playing at the arena. The hotel was everything I expected, clean and quiet. You can just walk from the hotel using your swipe card to enter the Arena, and then swipe again to get back into the hotel. Though it took several swipes for it to work.
The day that we were there, their were many kids that came for the speed skating tournament I saw young families carrying in hockey sticks as well. So it's a family hotel. That night in the pool it was full of children and teens laughing, splashing and having fun. At most the parents made it into the hot tub.
The next morning we enjoyed a hot complimentary breakfast. A big shout out to Theresa who welcomed us with a warm smile, and helped my son get his breakfast while. It's people like her who make our days brighter! The staff at the front desk were polite and courteous too, and allowed us to continue parking our vehicle at the hotel for free, even though we were across the street at the arena.
At the front of the hotel there was a small snack station where you can purchase snacks from the lobby, and a fridge to get cold drinks from. What I enjoyed about the hotel the most was the historic photos from the Lloydminster Archives. What better way to showcase a towns history to visitors is through photos from the Archives. My son and I walked up and down several halls to look at the old pictures.
If you are on the Yellowhead Highway, it's a small detour off the main street to the hotel, of Meridian, but well worth it. There are many restaurants close by to eat from. We will certainly be back the next time there is a speed skating tournament in town. less

Dear Mommytraveller1, Thank you for staying with the us at the Best Western Plus Meridian and for taking the time to share such a great review. The pedway that attaches our hotel to the Servus Sports Centre sets us apart from other hotels and is a huge plus if you are attending an event held there. Thank you for the wonderful compliments about our staff, breakfast and pool area. We are so pleased to know that you and your son took the time to view the historic photos from the Lloydminster Archives that grace our guest rooms and public areas. We are especially happy to know that we will have the pleasure of welcoming you back the next time your travels bring you to Lloydminster.We look forward to seeing you again!
Best Regards, Marlene Neumann, General Manager
