Waterslide fun in a convenient location

Pros: Kids liked waterslide, quiet, free, close to many things.
Cons: Not much.
Location: groceries, liquor store, major mall within walk of 5-10 min. 15 min drive to Ft Whyte Nature Center, Zoo, Botanic Garden, Ikea, Cabelas, the Forks.
I recall this hotel from my youth when they were still having Lord Gort's Medieval Feast in the dining room. Since then, it's been totally renovated. Now it's got conservative but stylish decor, moderate sized rooms and several meeting venues of different sizes. The rooms were tidy, service attentive. Food is onsite with a good range of items including several kid friendly meals. Breakfast ranged from about $5 to $10 per person depending on your taste and room service is available for a small fee (I think it was $2). Parking was good and we often were within 75 ft of the door so hauling luggage was not onerous. The pool is nice and warm with a fun waterslide for my 11 yr olds. Kids as young as 4 went down it. Splash pool and hot tub as well. Some of the rooms are poolside so you can watch your crew from closeby and relax. The hotel is near a major shopping district (but not downtown) and many restaurants within walking distance including some higher end and fast food places. Major shopping mall, liquor store, groceries, also within a 10 min walk. About 10 min drive from the airport and right on route 90 which can quickly get you to another shopping area, Ikea, Fort Whyte within 15-20 minutes. The most difficult part was figuring out how to get back on route 90 going south (you need to loop around). Beds were comfy and duvet was nice. Quiet and reasonable price for value,very convenient to many parts of the city without being in the hustle and bustle of downtown.

I was there for 4 days, So i needed an extra fifth day. So I rebooked it online, not with hotel. As I told them I rebooked after being there 4 days. And I had a shitty sleep, they wanted me to move to new room. Which meant I had to book out at 11:00 and recheck in at 3:00. This sucked as I had a horrible sleep on their real hard mattress the night before and terrible pillows. So after paying for four days, then also booking online, not paying their 130 a night , but 89 a night. I was treated like shit. Never again

We are so sorry about this. We will look into this for you. Unfortunately we have rooms that are pre assigned for groups/conferences. This is probably why the room you were in you couldn't stay in as the room was reserved for another guest. Did you let anyone know of the bed? We didn't hear about anyone's mattress. Thank you for your feedback.
