I stayed four nights in the Annex of this hotel. My room was spacious clean comfortable. The best feature had to be the deep soaker tub. I used it every night The wirst was the Internet. The connection was sketchy at best and it was hard to do work related emails etc. The small town has a beautiful recreation centre...

Was very pleasantly surprised at the size, quality and appearance of the rooms in the new building at the Pelican Rapids Inn. The room was VERY large, well stocked and very clean. A fully stocked kitchen, with large fridge, microwave, toaster, two elements, coffee machine, plates, cutlery and even some canned food and spices. The bathroom was very clean and...

My wife and I spent 2 nights on our first visit to Fort Smith. Our 2nd floor queen was in nearly new condition with comfortable bed, flat screen with all international channels, micro, fridge, coffee, and fully outfitted bathroom. The breakfast was a bit disorganized as it was not attended and limited to cereal, yogurt one morning and bagel with...

My husband and I did a road trip through Ft Smith on our way to Wood Buffalo National Park. As it's such a small town, we were not surprised about only having two options. The first option is for another review (wood buffalo inn), so we were left with Pelican Rapids. The woman who checked us in was ok...not the...

Thank you for your review, apologize for your experience during your stay. We have just renovated many of our rooms, you are correct that the old rooms are dated but we are working really hard to bring them up to customer expectations. I will look into the concerns regarding the continental breakfast, as it is an unmanned service and guest...

The hotel is in a good location in the middle of town... walking distance to where I needed to be. The front desk staff was very nice and friendly. The room did not smell good. I brewed a pot of coffee and opened the window to air it out. The bathroom had a good deep soak tub that was much...

Rooms are big with mini fridge, microwave, tv, coffee maker, good size bathroom, 2 doble beds, wifi. There is a chinese restaurant inside with ok food, big parking lot. Rooms go for about $170. There is nothing cheaper in town, besides a $130 bed and breakfast. It was clean and front desk stuff was nice.

Recently spent two nights at the Pelican Rapids Inn in Fort Smith. Room was clean, comfortable but a little dated. Staff was courteous and very helpful. Lovely gift shop in the lobby. Recommend you give it a try as it is centrally located and has a good restaurant next to the libby

I stayed here for work one night. The price is on par with the 3 other lodgings in the area. Pelican Rapids is in the centre of town. I stayed in the new wing and there was a noticeable musty odour upon entry. The bed, pillows and amenities were typical for a motel. Check in was quick and service was...
