This rural hotel is much like many other small town/village hotels but this one is on the edge of Drumheller in the former community of Newcastle. Tourist season is busy around the region, so I phoned this place, it was even listed at the tourism visitor center
so it must be OK, I could not get a room the first time as they were full, another trip I was in....Nice quite location, beautiful scenery in all directions, not far from Nacmine.

The hotel is your classic small town hotel and bar, room was reasonably clean, tile shower is great! room as private bathroom, nice low price; I will come back. I could have tried harder for other accommodation but modern cookie cutter hotels are so expensive and boring, this old hotel has character and is memorable, the sound of grasshoppers/crickets was very relaxing, the rural setting is so quaint just like being in a prairie town, the history in and around Drumheller fascinates me to no end, there is so much to see and do around here, the western classic scenery is kinda-like the Badlands in South Dakota and many areas look like that of Montana and North Dakota or even South-West Sask.

Not many old hotels in the area, Nacmine and East Coulee are closed and I think the old hotel in Rosedale is not available for the rooms, just the bar. I was at The Last Chance Saloon (Wayne hamlet) three summers ago and that is great! As far as old hotels go that one in Wayne is super, it is listed under hotels but this one in Newcastle is listed under 'specialty accommodation.

Hubby and I just spent 2 nights at the Dinosaur Hotel in Drumheller. We knew full well that it was old and that it was small and...well, that it was a bar with a karaoke. The room was small but quaint and it served the purpose. The bed was comfy and the room was clean. The manager , Brent, I believe was his name, was very accommodating and friendly. We booked our room here because we were fascinated by the idea that it had a ghost story attached to it. Unfortunately we didn't experience anything. The karaoke did keep us up until 2 in the morning, but that's because we sang our hearts out and had a great time in the bar. Overall we had a great stay. If you don't mind plain and simple this is a great place to stay.

I chose this hotel because of the price ($70/night) and location. It was walking distance to the Badlands Amphitheater.
I was met in the parking lot by the owner Brent. He was very friendly and inviting. Took me up to show me the room which was perfect for a place to sleep. Building is quite old so lots of character and small rooms.
Room was clean, wifi worked fine. The main floor is a bar, with very welcoming, friendly people, so there is noise; however, didn't bother me because I'm a heavy sleeper.
For those low maintenance travellers who want to save a buck, great place to stay.

The building was built in the 1920s and retains much of its original character inside, including original hardwood floors and doors. The room was clean but small. Simple fixtures and basic bed. The bathroom had a shower only. It's an older shower and not what your would typically expect. The water refused to get hot in the evening even though I ran it for a while, but it did get hot in the morning no problem. There was no door on the bathroom, which was a bit awkward. The cold water and the lack of bathroom door is why I gave it 4 stars.

We paid 65$ for the night, which is very cheap and I received exactly what I expected for a 65$/night hotel. If you're looking for a simple, clean, affordable room to sleep in, incredibly friendly staff, and a unique, vintage feel in your hotel, this is the place.
