The Good
The majority of the reviews sourced for this analysis were positive, with compliments going to the hotel's rates, location and rooms.

The hotel's rates were praised by many lodgers. They described them as affordable, cheap, incredible, budget friendly and "great value for the money".

Several reviewers were pleased with the hotel's location. They found it to be easily accessible, as well as in downtown High Prairie and close to the highway. One patron noted, "Since High Prairie is a 3+ hour drive from Edmonton, or 6+ from Calgary, this is a good place to stop to break up the long drive if heading to the farther parts of northern Alberta or the NWT".

The hotel's rooms were enjoyed by several guests. They described their rooms as quiet, well equipped and clean, with comfortable beds. A few travellers had complaints about their lodgings, however (see below).
