Editor's Analysis
Updated on Feb 27, 2012
Overview
The Country Inn and Suites Saskatoon is located in the city’s airport business area, near Highway 16. The John G. Diefenbaker International Airport (YXE) is a very short drive from the hotel with the River City Centre also nearby.

The Credit Union Centre (5.7km), the Wanuskewin Heritage Park (12.8km), and the Mendel Art Gallery (5.0km) are all short drives from the property (all distances: Google Maps).

The hotel is a 100% non-smoking property and features several free services for guests. Those services include free Internet access, free continental breakfast, free local calls, free weekday newspapers, and free in-room movies (DVDs).

Room amenities include cable television, coffee makers, hair dryers, irons and ironing boards, refrigerators, and alarm clocks. Cribs and cots are available on a request basis as are handicap rooms.

The hotel features a meeting room, copy and fax services, on-site laundry, and the property offers a discount to CAA members. Room bedding options include two double beds or one king bed depending on the room category.

The Good
Guests of the Comfort Inn and Suites by Carlson generally enjoyed their stay. Those that made positive comments in their reviews, normally focused on the staff, the location, and the breakfast.

In regard to the staff, hotel employees received compliments far more often than they received criticism from guests. Guests who praised the staff frequently described them as friendly, helpful, and/or responsive.

Many guests also approved of the hotel’s location and specifically mentioned that they liked being close to the nearby John G. Diefenbaker International Airport. Occasionally guests indicated that they found the quick access to highways convenient as well.

Guests generally approved of the quality of the breakfast that was served. Multiple patrons called it “terrific” while hardly any guests complained about it. Less frequently, guests called the hotel quiet and referenced the rural atmosphere of the property.


The Bad
Many guests who stayed at this property indicated they they did not like their rooms nor did they like the value they received for what they paid.

Specifically, several guests complained about amenities or room features. For example, numerous guests reported having trouble operating the temperature control devices in their rooms. Some guests said that the bed was hard and some complained about the television not working well. Guests often said they had trouble closing the patio door which made noise exterior to the hotel invasive.

Many guests thought the value received for the price paid was poor. Multiple times, guests who commented on the rate of their room said that it was high and felt that they did not get something fair in exchange.

Some guests claimed that the room they thought they had reserved mismatched the room that they actually received. The occasional guest that had this problem typically said that the bedding type mismatched what they thought they had booked.

A few guests voiced hotel maintenance concerns in their reviews. Also some guests thought the location was out of the way and that there were not enough services nearby. In a few reviews, guests wondered if the hotel was actually 100% non-smoking.

Fred from Calgary, AB CA rated Country Inn & Suites Saskatoon 5 out of 10 on October 17, 2010 Verified Guest Hotel Review

"Less than expected"
"First the website shows a brand new hotel. In real life it has aged poorly and the verdant grasslands around the hotel is all industrial area! The foyer has lost its glistenening floor and looks extremely worn out. The whole lobby area is crowded by the front desk, its low ceiling, breakfast area and sitting area. Secondly the rates in Saskatoon are high and this hotel is in the middle of the road in value. There were no real detractions, the rooms were clean, but no superlatives either. It is in need of an upgrade-sooner rather than later."

"Awesome stay, would like to stay longer next time."
"I found the bed a little hard, but I like a really soft bed, and it was a bit expensive for one person paying the bill. The staff were excellent, the breakfast was really great, the freebies were awesome ie: fruit, cookies, coffe, hot chocolate and movies. I wish I could have afforded another night!!"

Linda from Okotoks, AB CA rated Country Inn & Suites Saskatoon 6 out of 10 on August 02, 2010 Verified Guest Hotel Review

"Overnight Travelling hotel is ok, otherwise look around."
"Overbooked hotel so could not get king suite room as reserved. Lucky for us, only 2 of the 4 people travelled so we did complain and got offered a room with two queens at a reduced rate after about 45 minutes. Hotel is clean and rooms are okay but it is not a 4 or 5 star hotel; there are no exercise amenities and it is just a hotel for staying overnight. For that, the hotel is good."

"Nice Comfortable Stay, would recommend to everyone I know"
"Service was very good, hotel was nicer than expected, almost felt like you were at home with the entrance (fire place, cozy kitchen area, and friendly staff to greet you). Bed, bedding, and pillows very comfortable. One thing that was annoying was the cleaning lady, we were staying 2 nights and we didn't need any services the first morning. We had the do not disturb sign up, and she came in anyways. I told her we were good, but I don't think she understood english? I said we didn't need anything, and she ignored me. Then after that someone else walked ito our room, they only knocked once, then asked if we needed anything? That was the only annoyance. If the do not disturb sign is up, stay out. Thanks! We understand and appreciate the customer service, but if we say we are ok, we are ok. Breakfast and newspaper every morning was nice too! They have waffels!! YUM!"

Verified Guest from Morris, SK CA rated Country Inn & Suites Saskatoon 10 out of 10 on June 09, 2006 Verified Guest Hotel Review

"I was in Saskatoon for a UMAAS conference. I was too late to book at the Travelodge and chose your motel because it was close. I prepaid and therefore got a good rate on a "suite". I could not have been more pleased. It was huge and had more comfort than I needed. I went down to the desk and said " I am only ONE person, I do not need all the space" and they said to me "to just relax and enjoy it" and that I did. I told everyone at the conference about my great room and told them if they were smart, they would book at your hotel for the next conference. You do not have a restaurant, but there was one next door, so that was not a problem. I can not wait for 2 years from now when the convention is in Saskatoon once again."

"Even thought the bed was very comfortable, every hotel seems to purchase their heating/cooling systems from the same supplier. They are ALL noisy! I have trouble sleeping when it is running. Unfortunately, I couldn't turn this one off. Very nice hotel though."
