"Clean rooms, good continental breakfast"
This hotel was affordable, on the cheaper end for the area. The room was very clean with comfortable beds and minimal noise. The only downside to the building was having to walk through a smelly smoking-friendly hallway to get to my own non-smoking hallway. The continental breakfast was large and the servers were very friendly. I found the front desk […] staff to be slightly rude and a little unprofessional. Overall a good experience and I will be staying here again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Great hotel once you know it is built in a circle. It took me a half hour to find my room. My room was on second floor. You would assume same room numbers would be on top of each other. Not here. I should have asked better directions, who knew? I was told "go left and then go up to second floor". The stairs were at the far end of hallway, past the second […] set of doors, and to the left, no signs, THANKS. Other than that it was excellent, clean room and FANTASTIC food!

The stay was enjoyable, the hotel was a little older than some others in the town but well maintained and clean with good staff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
4 tries to get a room key to work. Floor was dirty. Cigarette smoke permeats. Better places in townGenuine Expedia guest review
"More of an oilfield hotel"
I was very disappointed. Our rooms looked nothing like the pictures advertised. Everything was very outdated and our initial room smelled like a dirty ash tray and pot even thought it was non smoking. We asked to get moved, we did, and it still smelt gross- old and musty. It's a place to crash if your working or partying, but I wouldn't stay there again. […] It's not worth saving the $20 a night or whatever it is. It's connected to a pumpkin pub if that interests you.

"Good hotel in Slave Lake"
Good hotel with an excellent hot breakfast. The front desk staff was great upon check-in in the evening, although rather indifferent upon check-out in the morning. The front entrance was closed due to construction when I was there, so I entered through the back. However, this wasn't clearly indicated on the evening I was there. Overall a good hotel. […] Rooms were clean and comfortable. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Nice to deal with and very friendly. Upgraded room was nice at a reasonable cost.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very good hotel for the cost."
Stayed one night. Good place to stay and good complimentary breakfast.Genuine Expedia guest review
the front desk seemed to give no effort into any process of booking, changing or checking out of rooms. Asked to pay the night before so I didnt have to get up early to deal with it before I left but was told just to do it in the morning to make things easier for them. the rooms were loud and the bathroom pipes had HORRIBLE water hammer. very old and […] not well kept. they may show updated pictures but I didnt not get an updated room. this is an old hotel and they put on a show but when you try to book with a deal they send you right to the grimy rooms. not impressed. they shouldnt be charging anywhere near what they are. use another hotel if possible or make sure you get an updated room.

"Not a nice hotel!"
Hotel doesn't have a jacuzzi and steam room as advertised. Staff were not very helpful (except the front desk guy with the pony tail). Asked for a non smoking room and got the stinkiest smoking room ever. Would never stay here again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Definitely requires some renovationa nd updating, but very quiet!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Unfriendly Reception - Sawridge, Slave Lake"
Your reception clerk on duty on Aug.5/12 has a cultural problem dealing with females as equals. We phoned ahead to advise of our late arrival. My wife entered to check us in while I parked & emptied the car. After an unusually long period to time I joined her to see why the delay. The clerk would not acknowledge any of the conditions of our reservation. […] ie. 1) no record of 2 queen beds; 2)no non-smoking room on the main level - and on and on. He wanted her to take a room on the second floor with one bed and that was all they had. She offered to show him the reservation number and her printed copy of the reservation but he was not interested in even looking at it. When I entered the discussion all our reservation specifics were suddenly available. He did give us a room where the dead bolt was not yet fitted into the door jam. He tried to convince me it didn't matter as the door couldn't be opened from the outside anyway. When I didn't buy it he gave us a nearby room with a properly fitted dead bolt. Why was any of this necessary ?!!! The parking lot was 60% empty so we knew they were not anywhere near capacity. What reason would such a person have to make it difficult for a female to conduct business with him? PS. your morning staff was excellent (like a breath of fresh) and the complementary breakfast was equally excellent. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
stayed here many times always have good experience when I saty here.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Room was very hot and I was put to the very very farthest corner of the hotel, and up one level. Couldn;t get any further away from the front desk and restaurant. Food was excellent and service of staff excellent other than one person at the front desk. the only saving grace being that far away, as there was no one else around to make noise, however […] the room was so hot that one couldn't sleep anyway. rooms as well are old and need updating.

I will begin by saying that I've stayed at this hotel during the last 6 summers. The last two summers has been under new ownership. I stay at the hotel for a period of 4 months between May and September. The new owners took over this hotel after it had been neglected for many years. It was formally know as the Sawridge Inn. But they have been working hard to upgrade the facilities. Boilers and ducting as well as some exterior work has been completed. The furniture in the restaurant, The Landing, is now new and they have just finished painting. Also, The Ridge Tap House also underwent renovations. At the moment, their WiFi and TV offerings are both in need of upgrades and I was told that this will happen shortly. The rooms are clean, especially in the newer renovated part of the hotel. The staff are very helpful. The food at The Landing, Fairways and The Tap House is great. The morning breakfast buffet has one of the biggest selection of food and is free when you stay at the hotel. The noon buffet at the Landing also has a large selection and again, the food is excellent. A great deal as well.

I spent time at the Slave Lake Inn for the Wounded Warriors Weekend. Although the hotel and its night clubs were understaffed, the staff did their best to ensure everyone was taken care of. They were pleasant and friendly! The hotel itself has been remodelled and the rooms were clean and up to date. Like every small business, the lack of staff makes for a stressful time for both customer service persons and the traveller, but the staff here were honest about their predicament, and worked as hard as they could to aide everyone. The hotel is centrally located and close to pretty much everything a person could need access to!
"I stay here often, and never disappointed."
08/12/14 Patrick W Sylvan Lake, Canada
I travel to Slave Lake often and I choose this hotel first every time. The location is very central, and close to other immenities. The staff is welcoming and very courteous and friendly. My room is always clean and the "sturdy" walls help to muffle just about any sound in hallways or adjacent rooms. The free breakfast each morning is the best you will find without a doubt. The restaurant also offer a nightly supper buffet which is ALWAYS delicious. The vegetables are never over cooked- crunchy and fresh, and there is always a very good selection of items from tender and juicy roast beef, to chicken or fish dishes and even things like cabbage rolls or ribs. I eat here every night when I am in town. Through the summer months however, the restaurant does not offer the dinner buffet due to lower demand, however, the menu also has many delicious selections, and daily specials. A great place to stay at a very budget friendly rate.
"What a dirty dump with no value!"
So this place had my 82 year old great uncle stuck in a room with no air conditioning. I showed up and complained and took me all night to have him moved to a different room. What a pig stye with brick walls. Captain Obvious would love this place....it is a pig stye. Sleep in your car!

Had a few good sleeps here, room was clean and service was good. Only thing that was bothersome was the dripping taps in the very small bathroom. But all in all for a renovated building it wasn't bad. Wish I could have stayed longer to pull some fish out of that huge lake!
"Offers a Free HOT breakfast"
07/22/14 Dale T Grande Prairie, Alberta, Canada
This is one of the older Hotels in Slave Lake but it is well maintained. Has a very reasonable rate at $99. The best thing I like about this location is they offer a free hot breakfast and yes even bacon and sausage. They also offer smoking for the smokers out there. The only things that I found was that as I said it is an older building and the wifi was weak.
"Dirtiest hotel I have ever stayed at"
07/17/14 dhowe12 Alberta
I am not sure how they can charge what they do for their rooms as it was very dirty and very rundown. I have never seen so many mystery stains on the walls and floors, holes in the walls and holes in hallway doors. Our bathroom door didnt close properly ,you literally had to wrestle and slam it shut!! there were lights burned out . The roll away bed was an absolute joke it was useless & my son had to use the mattress to sleep on the floor. We had to wait two hours for extra towels to be delivered to our room . I have never been told I had to wait 2 hours for towels. Yes, this was an issue with a family of five when there's only two towels., they already know how many people are staying in the room because they ask when booking the room. Typically one would expect that many towels to be in a room,its not rocket science, just good customer service which they are lacking terribly. No idea how this hotel got the rating it did . Would not stay here again.
"Lakeview Inn and Suites is excellent "
07/05/14 Janine E
Excellent staff, very clean and elegant but cozy furnishings. Wonderful little touches such as free cookies and popcorn. Good breakfast spread with lots to choose from and four different kinds of coffee. This is a welcoming hotel that I would gladly return to. Great internet and decent TV channels available. They also included a Keurig coffee maker in my room, and the gym and laundry rooms were very handy and well-kept.
"what a pleasent surprise"

This hotel was a very pleasant surprise, the rooms, staff and food were top notch!! I would stay here again and again. Great rooms very comfortable and the food was some of the best I ever had. totally exceeded all my expectations :)
"Service has gone down hill since I last stayed"
05/08/14 vanityfair2014 Calgary, Canada
I used to stay here when it was the Sawridge Inn quite often for work but this was my first time since they changed to the Slave Lake Inn. To be honest I only stayed one night and left very early in the morning and the service seemed fine. However when I checked out they told me they could not print out my receipt as there was an issue with their printer. The lady at the desk assured me she would email it to me and I left her my card. When I didn't receive the receipt I called again, then again and this happened about five times. I called again tonight and explained the situation to the lady at the front desk, yet again, and instead of apologizing to me she sighed loudly and assured me she would email it to me but sounded quite annoyed at me. I called to leave a message for their manager so we'll see what she has to stay. I am not one to write negative reviews but I'm very exasperated with them and cannot understand why I need to call five times for something that should have been done the day I checked out, almost one month ago now. I would hesitate to stay again, not just because they have failed to email my receipt but because they haven't apologized for the inconvenience.
