My wife and I stayed here 2 nights so we could rent a vehicle to visit Dinosaur Provincial Park and the Brook's Aqueduct. Although an older facility, it is well maintained and very clean. Our upper floor n/s room in the back had a comfortable bed, kitchenette, micro, large flat screen with international channels, and an outfitted bathroom with hot...

Yes, the motel is very basic. That's why the prices are low. ..............but Excellent, clean rooms with a comfy bed on which to get a good nights sleep. Very good and powerful shower. Close to dozens of restaurants and diners. Would stay again if visiting Brooks.

We come to Brooks every year for the Faire, and were lucky enough to stumble upon the Plains Motel our first year. The staff are incredibly friendly and willing to accommodate you in any way they can. I always book my hotel early, and really appreciate the confirmation call. The rooms could be considered simple, but are exactly what I...

This hotel is what you would expect for a budget price in a small rural town. Rooms were clean and comfortable and quiet. One shining surprise with the Carissa at the front desk. One of the friendliest people we met on our entire trip and she even brought us real wine glasses!!! Five stars for her!!!

Had low expectations based on price. Was completely blown away by friendliness of staff and cleanliness of room and pool area. Close to grocery stores and restaurants. Would recommend to anyone visiting Dinosaur Provincial Park. Thanks for a great two night stay. Nick F

Travelled with family during August long weekend & needed two rooms together. The rooms were inexpensive, clean and comfortable with fridge, microwave and good wifi. 1 had 2 doubles and the other, 1 queen with pullout. Both were great and the couch provided extra seating. The indoor pool was well appreciated after a day of hiking at Dinosaur Prov. Park!...

We wanted a cheap room not too far from Drumheller dinosaur park where prices were sky high. Did not book but found this by lucky chance. Room not luxurious but clean and comfortable - just right for our holiday. Delighted to find a swimming pool as it was a very hot day. The man who checked us in was very...
