If you happen to be trucking through Edmonton and you're looking for a cheap place to hang your hat and you like HBO and you love the blues and you wouldn't mind being in the city's coolest neighbourhood to boot, the Strathcona, then it's the Commercial Hotel, which is right next to Blues on Whyte. For $60, walk-in rate, I...

Rooms are small and dank but that matters little when you don't want to take a cab or get a DUI because you spent all your hard earned dollars on liquor and found some chick willing to take a ride on the pony.

They didn't have my reservation even though I called in before hand to double check. The place is under construction and looks awful. Rooms are disgusting and only have one electrical outlet. If this is your last option, you're better off sleeping in your car. Staff is rude and poorly managed, and it's full of homeless people yelling at you...

I like hotels that are old school. You get a room, give them the cash, they take down your drivers license number, you give them a key deposit and then you get a key. Simple. The rooms are cheap and you are in the center of the action on Edmontons famed South Side. I support hotels like this because there...

My husband purchased a weekend stay at a fundraiser so we decided to use it to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary Aug. 22-24. We stayed in a beautifully renovated room with a king sized bed, flat screen TV, comfy couch and a great view of historic Whyte Avenue. From the moment we checked in until we sadly had to leave...

I was greeted by bored and unfriendly staff in a dingy lobby so I wasn't expecting much. When I was walking to my room I was disgusted by how filthy and awful the hallway was. Strong smell of stale smoke and also marijuana smoke. But after traveling for 2 days with no sleep or a shower I was too tired...

There are better places to stay (almost any other hotel is a better place to sleep), but the bar in this place (Blues on Whyte) is a must if you are into supporting live music and musicians. Bikers, despite the stereotype, actually make places safer because they do not like petty trouble. I am not familiar enough with the crowds...

The Hostel International was full, this was unfortunately the closest place available. Alarm bells started ringing at check-in, but it was getting late and I needed somewhere to crash for the night. The receptionist was gobby and full of her own crap jibes. It certainly wasn't her pleasure to be checking you in and was very unhelpful. The room was...

Wasn't expecting much. Got even less. First stepped into our room and the tv was on, the bed was unmade, dirty towels on the bathroom floor, used cups and half finished cigarettes in the ashtray. It was like someone had just finished banging a prostitute in there. My friend goes down to complain and they send him back up telling...

“Ask for a bathroom and request a shower or tub. There is a key deposit. No elevator. Stairs only.”
 of 5 bubbles musicandart, 29 Dec 2014 | Read review
“This is on Whyte Avenue which has a great daytime shopping/eating/pedestrian experience followed by a very active nightlife. If you enjoy all of those things, simply book a very affordable renovated room. If you are not looking for late night activity, stay somewhere else - there are tonnes of great options in Edmonton.”
