The Good
This hotel was very well liked by its guests for providing excellent service, impressive cleanliness and for its wonderful on-site dining.

Guests appreciated the efforts of the staff. They were described as responsive and professional.

The food services were impressive. Guests were usually very happy with the dining on site. They credited the chef and his staff for providing one of the best places to eat in Red Deer.

Rooms were new, very clean, spacious and comfortable. Guests appreciated double glazed windows, a choice of firm or soft pillows, fast free Internet and rooms that were well appointed.

The location offered easy in and out access from Hwy 2 and was within walking distance of Tim Hortons and a McDonalds.

Other amenities that were enjoyed were: a large and warm indoor pool, a fast waterslide, a well maintained fitness centre, the hotel's meeting rooms and banquet facilities.

The Bad
Although guests were typically very well pleased, there was the odd nitpick or complaint found online.

Occasionally guests found the room prices expensive and some wished for a free breakfast and free bottled water included with the room rate.

Although this appeared very rarely in the reviews and many found their rooms quiet, occasionally guests mentioned noise at the hotel. They pointed to children in the hallways, rooms above, traffic from highway facing rooms and a Harley Davidson dealership next door.

Once in a while a guest found the on-site dining too fancy or too expensive.

Occasionally a guest mentioned that the location did not lend itself to walking around to restaurants and shopping as it was a little out of the way and more suitable for those driving.
