The Good
The most complimented aspect of this hotel, among reviews used for this analysis, was the customer service. 

The front desk agents were frequently described as friendly, helpful, and accommodating. One guest said that the staff "made every effort to ensure I enjoyed my stay", while a couple of other reviewers found the check-in process efficient.

The rooms were described as clean and spacious by several guests. Several reviewers also mentioned that their beds were comfortable.

The food quality at the Argyll Pub was complimented by a few guests. Some reviewers also described the wait staff as attentive. Room service also received a couple compliments for prompt service.

A few guests thought that the room rates were reasonable and those guests stated that they would likely stay at this hotel again in the future.

The Bad
Many guests thought that their rooms could use upgrades. Reviewers described tired decor, outdated furnishings, and stained bathroom fixtures. 

However, according to guests who stayed at this hotel after April 2012, the property is undergoing renovations that will continue through the summer of 2012. Some reviewers who stayed at this hotel, while renovations were on-going, felt inconvenienced and some guests were disturbed in their rooms by construction noise.

Several reviewers expressed concerns about the pool area. Some guests found the pool too small, while other reviewers found the pool to be uncomfortably cold. One guest also thought that the pool appeared to be unclean. A couple of reviewers, who booked a room at this hotel specifically for the pool, were disappointed to learn that the pool had been temporarily closed during their stay.

A few guests also found the location of this hotel too far away from the downtown area of Edmonton and inconvenient for accessing area attractions.

Other isolated complaints included: uncomfortable in-room temperature, in-room telephone not in working order, small fitness centre, unpleasant odour in the sauna, and the neighbourhood immediately surrounding the hotel appeared unsafe.

Linda from Lethbridge, AB CA rated Four Points Edmonton South 8 out of 10 on October 13, 2011 Verified Guest Hotel Review

"Very Good Stay - I'm Coming Back!"
"The room was exceptionally clean, the beds were beautiful and lots of pillows. The bathroom was well equipped with large towels, nice soap, etc. I missed having a complimentary fridge and microwave, however. Out in the lobby I noticed the gift shop was gone - I hope they get another one! The restaurant food is very good but for some reason there's very few customers there."
