We didn't book ahead, so this was only pet friendly hotel we could find in our preferred area of Saskatoon. Very economical cost compared to typical hotel in the area. Room was small, dated, but have to say it was clean and had all basic needs. Has smoking rooms, so this can be annoying when those folks are lounging outside... More

The room was clean, some stains here and there. There wasn't much noise insulation so if anything happened outside near you then you knew about it. The only major complaint was the water temperature was temperamental. It was hot or cold and any in between was rare. Take quick showers basically. Breakfast was good though.

Nice room, clean, everything you need for a overnight stay. Clean bathroom comfy bed ,air conditioning if needed ,good size T.V. easy wifi, plus continental breakfast all at an affordable price.Its not the royal plaza but it will meet your needs for a night or two. Cozy comfy while in town with my Irish Wolfhound for the CKC show.

Thank you for the review. We have become even more dog friendly as we took out all carpet on the main floor rooms and replaced with a LVT(vinyl flooring) which is easier to keep clean, allergy friendly, and just a much better look. We look forward to hosting you again upon your next visit. Thanks Travis More

It was a very good experience except for check in. I booked the hotel on line a day before. When I got there I was charged a higher price than what I booked it for. I eventually got the lower price when I showed the form that I printed off when I booked.

Stayed here with my boyfriend and our cat while traveling east. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and our room was beautiful! Very clean and fresh. Would definitely recommend to family and friends.
