1/5 Terrible

Travelled with partner
Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
This is a rundown hotel where the guests/residents are drugged up and drunk, making noise and driving around the parking lot until all hours of the night. There was fighting around my vehicle, a room window was broken, vehicles constantly in and out of the parking lot at all hours. As for the room itself, there was blood and long black hairs in both bathrooms, bits of drug paraphernalia, the heater did not work, and visible stains on the couch and carpets. This hotel offered a free breakfast (which there wasn't one) and a non-refundable discounted room. As a result of this hotel stay, I promptly cancelled our thriftlodge booking in Edmonton based solely on this experience in Saskatoon.
