The room was clean but very dated. The bed was the absolute worst mattress I have ever slept on in motel or hotel. Only provided with one bath towel and 2 smaller ones. Bed linens should be updated. Definitely not worth the price they are charging. We will not stay at this location in future.

Good location, walk to BPs for pizza or drinks. Easy to find, central.
Nothing special, but within budget and less expensive than most Drumheller accommodations, especially on a holiday weekend. Friendly staff. Clean and spacious. Instant coffee only in the room. Bring your own.

We decided to stay at the HooDoo motel on the family day long weekend. After driving for 4 hours, we finally arrived in Drumheller & checked into the motel. The beds were comfortable and the room clean. There was a fridge and coffee in the room. The staff was helpful & gave us directions to the Royal Tyrrell museum. The HooDoo motel had good value and we would certainly stay here again, if visiting Drumheller.

Stayed 2 nights to see Tyrrell museum and hiked in horse thief canyon all day and found some interesting fossils. The motel had excellent linens and towels and spotless. We had a great, quiet sleep. The staff was friendly and courteous. Also, the price was excellent, compared to other hotels.

Every time we stay in Drumheller, we stay at the Hoo-Doo Motel. The hotel staff are always friendly, welcoming, and helpful - particularly a gentleman named Sheldon. We've stayed at this hotel for almost 20 years now and he has always made us feel welcome - like we're a member of his family. This is why our family chooses to stay here, rather than at the big chain hotels. The service is consistently excellent, the rooms are tidy, welcoming, cozy and inviting. We rank this the #1 place to stay in Drumheller. It's worth staying more than one night, as there is much to see and do in Drumheller. Enjoy your visit! You'll love it!

We enjoyed our stay and the owner was very helpful and accommodating as one of us required Medical Treatment and needed the local Hospital. The motel was close to all the site which we wanted to see and to do. Good food close by as well.

There are lots of hotels in drumheller. Picked Hoodoo motel, as it had enough parking for our truck and trailer. We felt comfortable leaving vehicle overnight. The motel was very clean as a whistle and quiet. It was nice to have a ground floor room.

We are grateful to the motel for giving us an early check-in so that we could dress for a wedding. Good place for a shower and a sleep. The price is reasonable for high season in Drumheller. Nothing fancy. Clean, free parking, central to everything. Recommended.

Had to book as no other hotel available for the long weekend. Was sceptical at first but hotel room was very clean and quiet. Very friendly person at the front desk. Good air conditioner as day was very hot and humid.

This motel is very dated. 70's style carpet, tiles and furniture but holy smokes it really is clean! We stopped in for the night on our way through the town. The price was right. We got a room where the heat wasn't working but the guy at the front desk was more than helpful changing our room immediately. Very good service. Like I said the decor was dated and don't expect 4 star but if you need a place to lay your head for a good price and feel clean and safe this is a good place for you.
