“One of the best MOTELs that I have ever stayed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2010

The receptionist was friendly. We rented a room with 2 double beds and a kitchen. The room was spacious and the bathroom was big for a motel and clean. There was TV/DVD player combo which was a definite plus. The towels were white and looked very clean. The carpet looked dirty, but it was not since I always walked in the room with bare feet which were not black at bedtime. In conclusion, I am rating a family-run MOTEL, not a 5-star hotel.

Kind of motel you never wished to be.I booked two nights for a trip in Glacier national park in Montana and Waterton lakes and Cardston was a good base for these trips. This motel is at the end of town but this is the smallest problem, the place is disgusting filthy rooms,stained carpets ,dust all over.Has a swimming pool too never bother to try after seeing the rooms.I wouldn’ t stay again even if they pay me to stay there.

May 27, 2010 Don't go there, unless you take a carpet shampooer
By a Yahoo! Local user
To say the least, very nasty rooms, floors you wouldn't want to walk on with muddy boots. Staff waited for us which was nice, but the rooms where totally disgusting and the clientele we saw was less than desirable!!! Book a room at the South Country Inn as it's the newest, cleanest, friendliest and handiest. There are only 3 motels to choose from in town and the other one apparently is as bad if not worse as the Flamingo as people indicated they got bed bug bites there!!

To say the least, very nasty rooms, floors you wouldn't want to walk on with muddy boots. Staff waited for us which was nice, but the rooms where totally disgusting and the clientele we saw was less than desirable!!! Book a room at the South Country Inn as that's the only decent choice in Cardston. Only 3 motels to choose from and this one and the other one both are really disgusting. The South Country Inn is clean, modern and staff are really great.

Our room was clean (except for a few flies I had to remove) and in good condition.

The place has WiFi which is a big bonus and is quite cheap considering the room had a fridge and microwave. Only stayed one night however I would put it at about a Days Inn standard but with dated (albeit clean) furniture.

Nice managers made check in easy.

  • Liked — Clean cheap rooms with WiFi
  • Disliked — Removing the flies from the room

Cardston has very few hotel/motels and this one had a website and looked fine. Let me tell you looks can be deceiving.

The motel is not kept up. The rooms are dingy and the carpets stained. The blinds were filthy. The air conditioner could not be reached without a chair. The room had dead insects on the floor and counters.

I was given a room with a kitchenette, but advised if i used anything in the kitchen, I would be charged an additional fee.

There is a pool on the property, and it looked clean, but the surrounding fenced area was a mess.

All in all this was an expensive venture for a less than acceptable room. The owner seemed kind, but unaware that his motel was mess.
