The Good
There were few positive reviews found for this hotel, among the reviews used for this analysis. However, there were a few common praises.

Several reviewers found the hotel conveniently located for accessing major highways, such as Highway 2 and Highway 14. A few guests also found dining and shopping venues within a 5 minute drive of this hotel.

A few guests described their rooms as clean.

The indoor pool and hot tub were mentioned as value-added features by a couple of reviews. A couple of other guests also thought that the room rate was reasonable for a hotel in the south Edmonton area.

The Bad
The most common complaint, among the reviews used for this analysis, was that the hotel appeared to be neglected. Many guests thought that the property, in general, was not well-maintained. Reviewers described dirty and scuffed walls, dimly lit rooms and hallways, stained comforters on the beds, worn linens, damp smelling bathrooms, rusty bathroom fixtures, and dated and chipped furniture. A few guests also found their rooms to be too small.

The customer service was said to be disappointing by several reviewers and the front desk agents were described as rude and disinterested. Guests described the following instances: key cards not coded properly, front desk agents unable or unwilling to accommodate requests, incorrect charges for a cancelled reservation, inefficient check-in processes, reserved rooms given away to other guests and therefore not available at check-in, and the continental breakfast closed early and without warning.

There were also several complaints about noise. A few guests said that they were disturbed in their rooms by noise from neighbouring rooms and from the hallways. A couple of reviewers said that they were disrupted by street traffic.

A couple of guests, who stayed on the third floor of this hotel, described the wireless Internet as unreliable. A few guests specifically mentioned that their beds were uncomfortable, while a couple of other reviewers complained about smelling cigarette smoke in their non-smoking rooms. The hotel parking lot seemed unsafe to a few guests who noticed homeless people and other suspicious individuals loitering on the property.
Expedia.ca gave this hotel an average score of 2.8 out of 5.0, with 47% of 75 guests recommending the property.

TripAdvisor.ca ranked this hotel #73 out of 84 properties in Edmonton, based on 52 reviews.

"The only real complaint we have is that the air conditioner was very noisy and annoying, and it really didn't cool the room for all the noise it created."

Christine from Red Deer, AB CA rated Edmonton South Travelodge 8 out of 10 on July 11, 2004 Verified Guest Hotel Review

"This is an older hotel and it shows in the infrastructure. I found the room to be clean, the bed comfortable, the towels fairly thick, the air conditioning noisy and ineffective, and noise from the hallway could be a problem. However for the price, I felt I got a good night's sleep and that is all I wanted."
