The Tel Star Motel is a motor inn and just about what you would expect for being the clear value play for the area. The room was clean, the wi-fi was good, the TV had a lot of channels, and it was a nice, hot shower. Breakfast was modest but enough, and the staff were very nice. The walls were... More

Stayed at this hotel for a family wedding from August 25 - 29, 2016. Clean room and comfortable beds. Bathroom needs to be redone as it isn't the greatest but apparently this is being done. The bathroom was clean. We had the greatest customer service. Would definitely stay there again- for the price!!!

The Tel Star Motel is exactly as advertised. It's a clean, functional motel that had a great value for money. We stayed one night on a short weekend car tour around Southern Alberta, and it met our needs perfectly. The rooms had everything that we needed, including a small fridge, coffee maker, and microwave. The furniture all functioned and the... More

We stayed at the peak of summer when nothing else was available - I was a little afraid because of the price - this motel is very inexpensive - but was pleasantly surprised. The room was very clean and quiet (there was no one in the room beside us, though). The beds were fairly hard, but if you like firm... More

At just under $60 including tax, this hotel is a bargain. Two queen size bed in separate rooms. Complete kitchen facilities. Close to shops and restaurants. Breakfast not much to speak of: cereal, bread or toast, tea, coffee, water, milk was about it. We stayed 3 nights and have no trouble recommending this hotel.

I was initially apprehensive about booking this motel because the nightly rate was so low, but I was pleasantly surprised when we checked in. For half the price of similar motels, this motel had adjoining room with two queen beds, clean shower, stove, microwave, and a mini fridge. The motel is close to the highway for a quick exit in...

The room was clean but it's showing its age, on the plus side the bed was comfortable, the bathroom was clean, the room was quite and the A/C worked. There was also a small microwave, refrigerator and a cooktop. So over all, not bad for a one night stay

This is a motel so don't expect anything more. With that said, they offer a small complimentary breakfast and for the total price, this is a very good value if you are needed to stay in this area (we were visiting Dinosaur Provincial Park).
