My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The owner was attentive and friendly. We were surprised, because he offered us a free upgrade to sleep at honeymoon suite. There was a jacuzzi, fireplace, fridge and microwave. Good quality towels, sheets and pillows. Room was cozy, clean and well maintained. I don't know about other rooms, if... More

Upon arrival was told the room reservation I had was on the 2nd floor up a flight of steep crumbling cement stairs - the motel was empty when I arrived and about four rooms were rented when I left. I was told if I wanted a ground floor room it would be $10 more - I'm in my 70's. Since... More

Sir, Its always a "breath of fresh air" to get feedback from someone who did not have the good sense to complain directly to us, but couldn't wait to go online and complain to the rest of the world (which, by the way, NEVER solves any problems).... We have been working hard to correct any issues with this motel, as... More

Three of us, in a 2-bedroom suite. Spacious and comfy, and nicely quiet because although it is right on the highway and therefore easy to locate, this is a very small town with very little traffic. There are a few restaurants and a supermarket within one km.

This is a newly renovated hotel that the new owners have been working very hard on- and it shows. We were met with kind words and a smile. We had a long 20 foot truck with us and the owner happily came out to show us the best place to park it. Our rooms (2) were comfortable, clean, and up... More

We had a large group booked into the Outpost Motel for the September long weekend. Two of our three families shared the 2 bedroom suite which was just renovated. It was clean and the kitchen well stocked. The hotel manager was patient and worked with us, communicating very well on all questions. He also took the time to phone us... More

This small motel is not luxurious, but it is a great place for a budget traveler—good value for the money with a good room at a low price. It also is well located being easy to find a short distance from downtown. The new owners are making helpful renovations, so it should be even nicer next year. The room was... More

Visited Waterton and stayed two nights with two big families (14 people). The management is super friendly. 5 star plus. We arrived late and was checked in nicely. The management is extra friendly and will accommodate any additional supplies, mattress, pillows etc. when required.
