Western Budget Reddeer #1
Ranked #28 of 29 Hotels in Red Deer
Reviewed 14 June 2011

We went for a conference in the Capri Center which we registered late, so they were full. We were looking for very affordable and close to the Capri and it seemed to fit the bill plus others we knew were staying there. The motel is about a 5 minute drive away from the Capri so it was quite handy.
We had a room on the main floor, close to the breakfast room and the pool. The room was quite spacious and had an attractive fireplace and a fridge..no microwave. No glass cups in room, only plastic so it is very basic in that. A continental breakfast is supplied. It was nothing fancy. I have had better other places. It consisted of 2-3 kinds of cereal, toast or muffin. I think there was danish but no fruit or anything protein. It kept the hunger at bay though until we could find a lunch place. It is located on the freeway so getting out seemed a bit complicated getting north into town because of boulevard but we found a back way which made us happy instead of doing the main highway.
I had to try the fireplace although it heated the room up quickly. It would be nice in winter It was a nice touch..made you feel quite homey. Staff was courteous and we enjoyed the pool . It was quite cool temperture wise I thought and I felt a bit disappointed as I thought it was closed too early. There was Costco and Scotts Parable Christian Store (we enjoyed shopping in there) and numerous restarants are extremely handy to the hotel. We bought some groceries at Sobeys and utilized our fridge. We ate two meals out.
It was a good basic motel. I will stay there again

Our Indoor Salt water pool is constantly maintained at 84 degrees all the time, we really can't go any warmer than that and our pool hours are very flexible as it is open from 8AM till 9PM every day. If a guest is request they want to use the pool in most cases we have allowed it and kept the pool open till 1030PM.

These clever folks advertise that you can get a room for as little as $67 or $69 or something. But, when you get there, they firmly inform you that that's only for single people in a single bed. This is a bit misleading, as far as I'm concerned--not the best way to market yourself for long-term growth.

The rooms are plenty big enough and they are fairly well lit and quite clean. They are also quite large, for the price, and even have nice looking fake fireplaces.

There was no elevator and the overheated hallway reminded me of some old logging camp bunkhouses that I saw 40 years ago, but once we got in the room, it was easy to forget about that.

I usually prefer to stay at somewhat fancier places, but because the room was bright and large (and surprisingly quiet), I would definitely consider staying there again. I would just accept the fact that the true cost is closer to $80, which is still a reasonable price.

Thanks for your review of our property. We do have rooms for $59.00 and they are usually full as regular travelers know about this rate and book some times up to 2 months in advance to guarantee this rate and have the room of their choice. We only have 2 floors here and will assist guests if they need help with luggage up the stairs.Our gas fireplaces are not fake, they are the only source of heat for the rooms in the winter time. In the summer time we have them turned off.
