“Great Shopping location, pool was fun for the kids”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 March 2011

This Canad inn is no different from other Canad inns. It is getting a little worn our but for the most part it is alright. We stayed two nights and the kids had a blast. The pool was perfect for them. We stayed in a theme room - they loved the bunk bed area. It has a mini fridge, and microwave so you can store things or bring your own popcorn. This is not a hotel to stay at if you are just passing through and want to go to bed early. There is a bar attached to all Canad-Inns and it si very lively around midnight. this never bothered us.
Food was average as you would get in all alto's - we have staying in the polo park, brandon, Fort Garry and garden city Canad-Inn. They are all the same. Club Regent is ok too. All in all an ok stay.

I will be brief, but will confirm exactly what others have said before. Very thin, and dirty walls. We could hear outside "bar noises" until nearly 3am.

Halls were dirty and smelled of mold. Beds were worn but reasonably clean. Bathroom was very old, worn, small and dirty. However it did have a handy bottle opener on the counter... From the 70s! Remember those? Lol

We were here for a team sporting event in the neighborhood. Our "team special price" was over $100 per night per room. Arrrrr!

We did not risk the pool.
Pass this hotel by.
Stay at the casino hotel 3 blocks away, even if you hate casinos, and you have to stay in the neighborhood.

I will never stay in this hotel again in transcona the kids next door were so loud it was like they were in the room with us. they got a phone call too quiet down cause I heard the conversations and they kept it up for a hour so I asked to move to another room.the next day, well when the bar got out at 1 a.m
it was so loud in the hallways you could swear they where in my room and you could hear every word . for the price I paid it wasn't worth it

One would expect when you pay for a room in a hotel that you do so with the intention of getting a good nights sleep.... Well, should you ever have the unfortunate luck of being placed in a room backing on to the the bar forget it!!!! There is a ill placed picnic table where hotel, restaurant and bar staff and patrons gather alike to gosip and smoke. As the windows in this hotel do not open, this shouldn't be a problem, right? WRONG! Every word can be heard as if you were right there with them. And with the amount of sleep we got it would have been a lot less frustrating to joing them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So how about complaining, well a very late call to the front desk, resulting in a visit by security to the picnic table patrons one would think it solved. Nope, and the second compalint did nothing either.

Then comes check out, ok I'll try to complain there too, only to be told that front desk staff has no authority to do anything about my complaint. They only option I have is to contact the manager next week. What no shift supervisor even? I give up.

So, I shall use this forum instead, seeing as they couldn't even attempt to satisfy or even pretend to care about my complaint. I have a very difficult time beleiving that I was the first to complain, yet the picnic table remains for staff and bar goers alike. Maybe they should realize that without guests they wouldn't need staff???

So all I can say is, ask where & what your room faces before accepting it, if you hope for (a very unrealistic hope it seems) a good nights sleep.

Signed,
KCP
Frustrated and tired

I stayed here because a business meeting was held here. Why they chose this location I have no idea. It's miles and miles from the airport - $25 cab ride. The room had no desk for working at. I had to pull out the bedside table to plug a computer in to the phone line, which revealed the extent of the dire state of the housekeeping. Nothing like somebody else's toenail clippings in the carpet! I'd already noticed the mildew problem in the bathroom. The worst was the thin walls - I could hear every sound from the next room and woke up with a start when the neighbour started snoring - sounded like he was in the room with me! The only thing that made up for the room was the truly helpful staff who really did their best to accomodate my requests. However there are far better hotels to stay at in the Winnipeg area.
