Fort McMurray has a good selection of hotels, all similarly priced and all similarly rated. I looked for good value hotels in Fort McMurray, and compared what they offer against their basic room price, what the guests are saying and judged the location for convenience. Because I think the hotels are overpriced in Fort McMurray, I put more weight on price in my analysis for value.
