The hotel staff were all very friendly and the room was nice. But the pool is covered over and the bathrooms could use a face lift. Good value for the money and it's very close to the airport. The buffet for supper only had four options so I found another place to dine. This place has areas that could be... More

Was in Fort McMurray for the weekend and stayed here. The place was probably lovely a year ago, now it is just going through the motions as it prepares to close on Dec 17th. A shame really. The staff were all great, front desk, restaurant, bar, housekeepers but it must be tough to work knowing you are losing your job.... More

I used to rave about the buffet at the Sawridge. Stopped in the other night and was kind of disappointed. The 4 items they had up there were good, but it was very limited. Usually they have soup but not even that was available. Salad was pretty well empty as well, and it was 6:00pm when I was there. Maybe... More

I used to stay at this hotel whenever I was in Fort McMurray and really enjoyed my stay. This last time was different. The lobby was as nice as always, the front desk lady was great... check-in a breeze. The hallway was smelling of cigarette smoke and carpets were dirty. The room was clean and nice. We went down for... More

The room was clean, tidy, quiet and comfortable- so no issues there. What lets this place down is check in and check out - both slow and cumbersome, and the quality of food. The buffet breakfast was cold (at 7:15am!!), no cereals apart from granola and the service sucked. Same as bar food.

The rooms are a little tired but still clean feeling. Great pressure and fast hot water. Internet is pretty slow and gets worse during peak times. Fridge and Keurig in every room. The common areas are beautiful.

Very sad to hear this wonderful hotel with fantastic staff is closing in December to make way for a car dealership. Pool area cemented over and displays are gone. Rooms still okay with keurig and biscotti awaiting, expect things to get more run down. I am very disappointed to see Fort McMurray lose hotel rooms. if things pick up in... More

I thought only once in a lifetime would I ever stay in a hotel that couldn't provide the very basic minimum standard for its guests: hot water for a morning shower, ( it happened to me once a number of years ago when a supervisor forced our team to stay at a 3rd rate hotel) but the Sawridge in Ft....

This place used to be pretty good. Unfortunately due to the market and the fact that the rumor is the hotel has been sold and will become a car dealership has led to some decline in the care put into this place. The breakfast is not what it used to be and the rooms don't have that same sparkle. The... More

Have stayed here in the past for only short stays prior to the fire, but just spent the past few consecutive weeks there after the fire there and was impressed how they've been able to get back to business! Like most places in Fort Mac they're having a huge staffing loss problem because of the evacuation - but the that... More
