"Pool is fun, Hot tub - not so much!"
"The hot tub is located way to close to the waterslide and you get a huge splash of cold water anytime anyone comes down the slide. The parking lot is too small also. The hot breakfast was nice and the microwave and fridge in the room were nice perks too."

"Sorry, I am late replying. I usally stay here while in Edmonton and find it frienldy and comfortable. The only thing that I don't like is that parking is at a premium and if you park on the street there is always a bylaw officer right there at 9:00 am giving out tickets. I think there should be some arrangement with the city of Lethbridge and the city could be nicer to visitors!"
