I was traveling on a tight budget and so abandoned the company guidelines for hotels. The Saskatoon Thirftlodge was the cheapest option in Saskatoon, and so I booked there. There are a lot of positives for this property - easy access from major roads, easy parking, really polite staff (desk and cleaning). The people who work here are great. And...

At first we thought Travis was the handy-man, found out later he was the owner.......a hands-on owner and it shows. Room was clean and comfy, motel is close and easily assecable to the city,but the fresh breakfast fruit needs work.This property will be awesome in a couple of years, thanks to Travis!

The Motel is okay if you are looking for an inexpensive option in Saskatoon, but you have to be aware that the dirt is piling up near to your room and it might also be quite noisy. It is close to a big intersection.

We didn't book ahead, so this was only pet friendly hotel we could find in our preferred area of Saskatoon. Very economical cost compared to typical hotel in the area. Room was small, dated, but have to say it was clean and had all basic needs. Has smoking rooms, so this can be annoying when those folks are lounging outside...

The room was clean, some stains here and there. There wasn't much noise insulation so if anything happened outside near you then you knew about it. The only major complaint was the water temperature was temperamental. It was hot or cold and any in between was rare. Take quick showers basically. Breakfast was good though.

Thank you for the review. We have become even more dog friendly as we took out all carpet on the main floor rooms and replaced with a LVT(vinyl flooring) which is easier to keep clean, allergy friendly, and just a much better look. We look forward to hosting you again upon your next visit. Thanks Travis

It was a very good experience except for check in. I booked the hotel on line a day before. When I got there I was charged a higher price than what I booked it for. I eventually got the lower price when I showed the form that I printed off when I booked.
