Location ok, but kind of away from most things. Beside a Tim Hortons. Room was clean,decent. Keurig coffee maker, they give you k-cups at check in. Pools closed for covid. When you want breakfast you go down to front desk (between 6am-11) and get it. In it: bottle of oj, yogurt and spoon, granola bar, apple, breakfast sandwich. Microwave in room to heat sandwich. We didn't try it because I wanted Tims so can't comment on it. It was bacon, egg, cheese on muffin. The front desk girl was very nice. $200 for one night mid week stay. We were on second floor, requested it because bottom floor allows pets and we have allergies. Glad we weren't down there because lots of trucks backed in and would be noisy. Request the back side and upper floors if you want quieter. Hallway had a weird smell but who knows why lol. Ice machines, vending machine had about 6 things in it only.

I stayed at the Canalta Jurassic hotel for one night on June 25, 2020 as a quick getaway from covid life in the big city. Staff were friendly and attentive. The room was nice and clean due to the new cleaning policies implemented due to covid. I wish all hotels would maintain this stringent cleaning schedule 365 days a year, all the time and not just for a virus outbreak. I enjoyed the breakfast in a bag and a baggie filled with the coffee supplies for the in room Keurig machine. I enjoyed my brief stay here and I would come back.

Thank you for your review of the Canalta Jurassic Hotel. I appreciate that you took the extra time to write specific details about your stay. We have always paid attention to the strict cleaning regimen that happens when a room is cleaned. Our tracking and recording of all has changed though, and at least here at this hotel, that will stay, even when the COVID-19 pandemic is over. It is said that good things come out in times of crisis, and this seems to be one of them. Thank you for saying. Cindy Clark GM

Recently my husband was painting the kitchen and the kids and I had to leave. So we went to Drumheller and stayed at the Jurassic. It was a great choice. The management does everything they can to keep the stay safe and comfortabkle during the time of the pandemic. The hotel was immaculate. The linen quality was good. The rooms relatively quiet. The hot buffet breakfast is suspended but there was a bagged breakfast at the door in the morning. The staff really went above and beyond! I will defintely stay there again.

I stayed here for one night with my husband and four year old son as we were in town for little getaway. We chose this hotel based on price and reviews. The location was great, easy to find from whatever direction we were. The front desk staff were so friendly and helpful. Such a warm greeting after a day of travel! I was happy to see measures put in place to make guests fee safe during this pandemic. Sadly some extras were closed but we knew that would be the case. Beds were comfy. Mine fridge and microwave. TV had a great selection of channels. And the best part was waking up to an awesome breakfast to go outside our door for each of us! Breakfast sandwiches, fruit, juice, granola bars, yogurt. Such a nice touch when they can’t offer continental breakfast. My only wish was to have plug ins by the bed to use for our phones. Thanks for a great stay!
