The Good
This hotel was well liked for being a welcoming and relaxing place to stay, and many reviewers gave it full marks.

The staff made a difference. Guests found them pleasant to interact with, friendly and accommodating.

Breakfast was another highlight with good quality hot and cold items on the buffet which was served for extended hours, great for the early risers while not leaving out the guests who needed a little extra sleep.

Guests described the rooms as clean, spacious and quiet with comfortable beds. There was good coffee in the rooms and some enjoyed the second TV, the jetted tubs and mini-kitchens.

The location was considered central in Okotoks, an easy walk to restaurants, groceries, a drug store and other retailers. Some used this area to access destinations in Calgary.

Guests often appreciated the free ample parking.

The Bad
There were a few complaints from guests in recent reviews.

Very occasionally, guests complained of tired rooms, with worn furniture and carpets. Some complained of uncomfortable beds with saggy or hard mattresses (although many found comfortable beds).

A few were disturbed by the smell of smoke or found cleaning inconsistencies.

Some guests felt it was overpriced compared to Calgary hotels.
