Clean cozy and comfortable, is what I can say to best describe my stay here. They are renovating, the manager showed me what he is planning, and I cannot wait to see what the hotel will look like. The rooms are very large and spacious, lots of room. The food at this hotel really makes it worth the stay too....

Stayed here and upon arriving at around 9PM, was told there were NO ROOM available. I had made reservations about 3+ months in advance so I was flabbergasted. Everywhere else in town was booked up months before that even so hence why I was forced to try to stay there. The clerk finally gave me a key and when I...

The service was good, very friendly bunch, the only downside was I had to wait 15 mins to get paid for my ticket at one point. I won $2400 😊😊ROOM...

I urge anyone who needs to stay somewhere to go somewhere else. The ground outside would be a better place to sleep then in the hotel. Coming from a former housekeeper there who didn't stay long. It is disgusting. He doesn't have the best housekeepers around because he can't keep any long enough. He uses a magic solution which is...

When I arrived they told me the room was not ready. Came back 2 hours later, room was still not ready. David, the manager? apologized, offered me a break on the room rate. He sent the night audit guy to make up the room, then went himself to help out. When I got to the room, the beds were made,...

Worst experience ever. I mean ever. Trash in the hallways, towels from all rooms in the hall, returned from work all doors open to all rooms including mine. Ceiling tiles wet, tools in lobby for days. The restaurant did a good job for breakfast, but I wont be back. Sorry.

Travelling through Alberta, this was one of my best stays. The accommodations were fantastic, and the staff bar none was my favorite part of the stay. They were helpful, courteous, considerate and respectful. Very informative with any questions I had, and would go the extra mile if they did not know the answer. I enjoyed my stay very much and...

Ample sized and very clean rooms made for a comfortable stay. The staff was very courteous and covered all of the needs that I had. I will be staying here again if I'm ever back in the area. Keep up the good work!

I found the New Western Athabasca Inn to be very clean. The staff were hospitable when I asked for a change in bedding after my friend vomited. The manager even went so far as washing my personal items that caught some of the puke. Definitely would revisit if I were ever to go through again. The slot machines or VLTs...
