4 out of 5

No frills, but more than adequate for the price.

Pros: One: In the same building as my conference. Two: On the edge of the campus. Three: The price.
Location: A mile west (87 Ave) is traffic circle w Groat Rd. ~70 yds down (north) from traffic circle is long wood stairway down into Hawrelak Park. Take it.
The "hotel" I stayed at is actually a student dormitory 9 months per year. During the summer months, the building houses summer students and conference attendees. Each room had its own private washroom with shower, a large closet with shelves and hangars, a desk with shelves and drawers, a chair, and a bed consisting of a 6-inch-thick mattress lying on top of a wooden frame with more drawers for clothes. The mattress was about 3 feet by 6.5 feet, i.e. room for one person but not two. No TV, radio, or alarm clock. But Yes, there was free Wi-Fi. There is heating but not air conditioning. I was there in Edmonton the one week of the year where it got warm enough to make air conditioning highly desirable, but the housing staff loaned me a fan, and that helped make the room tolerable. The doors have deadbolts instead of automatically locking door-latches, so locking myself out of my room accidentally was not a risk. Room Service knocked on my door my first full day there, and I said No Thanks, and either they never came back or they couldn't get in because of the deadbolt. At the floor entrance from the elevator, there was a table stocked with extras of clean towels, soap bars, and plastic-wrapped drinking glasses. Like the title of my review indicates, the accommodations were free of frills, but I think they were more than adequate for the really cheap price I paid per night.

Thank you for taking the time to send us your comments. It is unfortunate that it was particularly warm during your stay. We are happy that we were able to provide you with a fan, to help circulate the air a little. We appreciate your feed back and look forward to hosting your again soon.
