I always waste no time on giving reviews of where I stay, but Plains Motel deserves a review. I happened to be in Brooks, Alberta on July 22 through 24 for a wedding; staying at Plains Motel was the best my choice of the year 2016 among others. The joy started by meeting very nice staff at front desk, then...

The hotel only had a 2 star rating so we weren't expecting too much. But it was much worse than expected, particularly since it claimed to have received a 2016 Best Housekeeping award. The award must have been presented by the owner's relative as the place was dirty, the bathtub drain wouldn't hold water and the sink wouldn't drain water....

We stayed here over the Canada Day weekend and were lucky enough to get a room. First of the rooms are really clean & the beds were comfortable. Regarding the low price this is a really great place to stay a few days to visit the nearby attractions like dinosaur or writing-on-stone provincial park on a low budget. What made...

Plains Motel is located in close proximity to services, restaurants, and shopping. The room was clean and the bed very comfortable. Staff was friendly and helpful with directions. The hotel has two wings, the east one is shielded from the street noise and I did not hear anything there. I will stay there again.

On arrival we were greeted by a friendly desk clerk who quickly got us registered. Our room was a fully equipped kitchenette. Room was dated but, very clean with a comfortable bed. We were only here for one night but, you could easily have a longer stay and be comfortable.

The motel is definitely old, but it's fairly well taken care of and the rooms are very clean, and there's also flat screen TVs and other modern amenities. The room was quite large and was fairly comfortable, plus the microwave and fridge were nice to have. The front desk staff were extremely nice and welcoming. Considering the low rate this...

Stayed at the Plains Motel on a business trip for about 14 nights. This motel probably had the most friendly staff I've met and were extremely helpful when I needed photocopies and work printed off every other day. The rates were very low even for a room with a kitchenette which was nice. The rooms, while nothing fancy, were very...

Stayed 1 night on a business trip. Found the front desk staff to be friendly and helpful. Liked having a fridge, microwave and coffee maker in the room. Wifi worked well. Restaurants both adjacent and across the street, along with a grocery store - everything I needed right there.

My wife and I stayed at the Plains Motel near the end of November for 2 nights while elk hunting at the Suffield army base. The room was basic but fine for a place to sleep after long days of hunting. The manager was super pleasant and said if we had any problems, even during the night, to call him....
