“Affordable and friendly”
Reviewed 29 August 2012

If you are looking for affordable in Cold Lake this is a nice place. Your door opens to outside, which not everyone likes, but what we prefer. There is no bar so quiet at night - more so in the back of the motel of course, away from traffic.
Rooms are good - we have a microwave and small bar fridge, coffee maker, desk and dresser plus a little table with 2 chairs to eat at and most importantly a BBQ outside for anyone to use if you don't want to eat at a restaurant every night! (If you are staying for work.)
(Unrelated to the motel itself - taxi driver told me not to walk downtown alone at night. The motel is away from downtown area.)

Stayed August 2012, travelled on business

2 queen bed room had lots of room. Bed comfortable. Room was clean but there were some stains on the carpets. Bathroom was clean. Fridge and micrwave. A/C was a little noisy but it worked. Good location for easy access to many areas. It is an older hotel but it has been kept in good shape. It's not fancy but it worked just fine for a few nights stay. Pet friendly.

Room Tip: on south side not against road would have been a little better. Ask for main floor if you have a pe...

Reviewed 30 December 2011

We've stayed at this motel a few times, this past stay was over the Christmas holidays. It is an older motel, but very clean - impeccable in fact. The rooms are standard, but even the regular rooms come with a small fridge, microwave and some simple dishes so if you want to bring a few snacks with you or quick easy meal items at least you get a fridge and microwave. What we are very happy with though is the fact this is a pet friendly motel. The fee is only $25 - and we have 2 dogs. We have never had any problems at this motel, the staff are very nice and as mentioned, the rooms are very clean.

My only minor issue is the beds - the rooms all seem to have 2 double beds. We are used to our king size at home and it would nice to at least see rooms with a queen or even a king size bed. Other wise though I would not hesitate to encourage people to stay here - it is "no frills" but it is pet friendly, clean and the staff are excellent.
