Hotel just ok for the money.

Posted 26-Jul-2015
Pros: Water slide.
Location: Fairly close to downtown.
Pool area had only 1 chair which was inconvenient for a sitting area to watch your children in the pool. It was also a bit run-down. Continental breakfast ended at 9:00 a.m. which was a bit early. Rooms were just ok.

Dated Clean

Posted 26-Jul-2015
Friendly staff. Breakfast was very disappointing. Hotel is dated and needs updating. Room was clean. Good price for what was offered. Pool and hot tub definitely needs updating.

Decent hotel with a waterslide.

Posted 26-Jul-2015
Pros: Protein in the breakfast was good.
Cons: More seating for breakfast.
Location: Lots of fast food restaurants, gas stations and easy access to the highway.
The reasons we stayed here were for the pool with a waterslide and the breakfast. Both met the needs of our family. The kids loved the waterslide and would have spent much more time there if it could have been spared. The breakfast was adequate with do it yourself wafflemakers (which were a hit) along with hard boiled eggs, fruit and other breads and cereals. There wasn't enough room in the breakfast area for us to sit but we sat in the lobby which worked out great. The only issue for some would be on cold days as we had to go to a different building to get to the pool. I wouldn't want to be doing that at certain times of the year! For our summertime visit, this wasn't an issue. We would stay here again.

Passing through

Posted 22-Jul-2015
I was very disappointed to wake up in the morning and find out breakfast ended at 9am. The other two hotels I stayed at on my trip had breakfast till 10am. Either then that it was a decent place to stay.

Checking into the hotel, the staff was friendly and nice. The room was very clean. At the pool, the water was quite cold. Also, the slide was very slow and uncomfortable going down. In our room, the shower head would make a loud screeching noise.

Comfortable stay , great pool

Posted 13-Jul-2015
Pros: Location, pool, continental , service
Cons: Ice machine was not working
Location: Alpine Whitewater Rafting just up the road. Minutes from several eateries.
We really enjoyed out 2 night stay . Our boys aged 12 and 14 loved the pool . On our first night we arrived late and the manager opened the pool late just for them to enjoy. That was great ! The continental was decent, had everything you needed. Our rooms were comfortable with a fridge and coffee maker . We will definitely stay at the Sportsman again in the future.

Nice clean hotel

Stayed there on my way back from Kelowna. Hotel was clean and the air conditioning worked well. The breakfast was included and a good selection of items was available. It was a nice hotel overall. I would definitely recommend that hotel...

Nice hotel. Clean room, friendly and helpful staff

Posted 11-Jul-2015
I was traveling with my dog. There is a great park area next to the hotel, fully fenced, quite large. An excellent area to let dog run. Also had picnic tables, campfire site, kids play center, volleyball net! A really positive experience.

not a nice MOTEL

Posted 08-Jul-2015
This place is a motel firstly......our room was clean I guess but stains all over the chairs and carpet. TV was fuzzy and had lines on screen. Pool was allright but hot tub was dirty and sauna was in bad shape(carvings from guests on walls).
