Bad timing to be passing through when the Stampeed was on - all the big hotels were full. We ended up at the Satellite for one night for $65. The room was very clean, beds comfortable, air conditioning worked and the continental breakfast was included. That was all we needed!

If you are looking for a clean, well run, budget accommodation in Medicine Hat, look no farther then the Satellite motel. The owners are exceptionally friendly and helpful. Check in was a breeze and it was nice to be asked if I wanted a ground floor or second floor room.

The rooms are an adequate size and have a fridge and microwave. There is a table and two chairs plus of course a TV and dresser. The bathroom is not large but was very clean. One thing that caught my attention was the nice towels in the bathroom. The bed was fine- thought the pillows were a bit thin. I also think it would be nice to have a spare blanket for the bed.

The heat was fully adjustable and I noticed an air condition unit in each room. The TV is the old type and it would be nice to have a flat screen.

The continental breakfast was basic with cereal, juice, coffee/tea, milk toast and muffins. There is a small breakfast room with newspapers etc.

Overall I was very impressed for the price and really thought the owners were very caring and are improving the property all the time. If you wish a nice, clean, well located motel check in here.

Here for business and only paid $50 plus tax on a weekday night. There is a lot of competition and motels in Medicine Hat so prices are low.
It's quiet too.
You get a microwave and refrigerator.
The bed was a little too firm for my taste.

Great beds. Nothing fancy, but cheap, clean & quiet. Fridge and microwave in the room. There's even a BBQ you can use to save more money. PVR with the tv too! Plus a continental breakfast included in the price. Great location too. What more could you ask for?

We have stayed 4 times at the Satellite Motel. When Peter and his wife were running the place, it was clean. The last time we stayed, the motel was under new ownership and it was terrible. The remote was not to be found, the fridge was dirty. The walls were dirty. The floor, it too was really dirty. The new owners do not seem to be keeping up the standard that was there before. I do not recommend this hotel any longer. Go elsewhere.

Save your money and stay at the Satellite. Our room was very clean, albeit a little dated, but the owner has obviously begun spending money on updating things like the bathroom and windows. Our room had 2 very comfortable queen beds, a bar fridge, microwave and free internet. The weather was lovely so we were able to sit in very comfortable garden chairs and enjoy the late afternoon sunshine. The owners were lovely people, asking if we were satisfied with our accommodations when I went to the office to get ice, and the day we left, one of the owners came to the car after my husband returned the keys and asked me if I had enjoyed my stay. We will definitely stay there again on our way back home. It must be a popular place as it was almost full by supper time. Great place!

We arrived in Medicine Hat late on a return trip home from the U.S. We checked Expedia and couldn't find anything for less than 109.00/night -they call it the "Alberta boom". Expedia doesn't list every property so we took a chance and checked it out. Clean, well kept, comfortable beds, affordable (we paid 55.00/night) nothing fancy. The owner/manager is what sets this place apart from the rest. This will become a regular stop each spring for these Snowbirds!

The Satellite Motel is a great bargain if all you need is a place to sleep. We were passing through Medicine Hat from Saskatchewan to BC and we were perfect content with our room. It was fine for kids, super clean & had a working TV, fridge and good heat/AC. The beds are good enough. ANNND it was $100 cheaper that the Days Inn we stayed in coming the other way. We're not big on people soup pools anyway. Continental breakfast is included but it's...not good. Maybe best to skip it? Oh, and the owner is super friendly and helpful. Save your $ and crash at the Satellite!

Very convenient to the TransCanada Highway. GM Peter Shin was very accommodating (pardon the pun). The two minor problems we had were handled promptly. The room was relatively small but tastefully furnished and clean. There is a continental breakfast offered. The motel is a favourite of workers to the area (no doubt the price) so I would suggest booking early.

Very nice little motel for a good price. Rooms are older, but clean and tidy. The owner was very nice and chatted with us, inquiring if we slept well when we came in for the continental breakfast in the morning. They served simple fruit, coffee, tea, and toast.
We were happy to support a family run, independent business.
It was a nice stay as we passed through town. We'll come back and we'll recommend it.

No dogs. I was hoping to stay there this weekend but was told "If you had a small cat or something it might be OK but no dog."
