Learn what to look for when checking TripAdvisor and other hotel review sites for the best Saskatoon hotels.

If you’ve ever used a travel review app such as TripAdvisor to source out a hotel, then you know that opinions can vary. What one person may consider the Ritz, another may consider the pits. It has a lot to do with the individual’s experience. However, there are ways to weed out the good from the bad and ugly when booking Saskatoon hotels.

Learn how to read reviews and check for the best service, amenities, and bang for your buck with these tips:

Look for the upfront details

While a review may cover the basic appearance of the hotel, its cleanliness and whether the air conditioner is working properly, there are other details one should consider when getting a true picture. Look for what makes the establishment special to other hotels in Saskatoon, SK.

Maybe you are catching a concert or hockey game at SaskTel Centre and need a hotel within walking distance, or want to explore some top Saskatoon tourism attractions?

Other things to consider include:

  • Is it one of the airport hotels in Saskatoon that is close to the highway?
  • Is it wheelchair accessible?
  • Is it one of Saskatoon’s pet friendly hotels?
  • Is it equipped for business travellers?
  • Is it friendly to families with young children?

Narrow down the amenities

Now that you’ve received an overall picture of the hotel, and where it is located, now search for the special amenities you desire.

Maybe you require plush bedding and an HD TV so you can relax after a business meeting, or maybe you want to workout and are looking for Saskatoon hotels with indoor pools and fitness centres.

Ask yourself these questions when looking at reviews:

  • Are you travelling with kids and searching for hotels in Saskatoon with a waterslide or other fun attraction?
  • Does the hotel offer a complimentary breakfast with hot and cold selections?
  • Is the hotel located near any restaurants, have a food delivery service, or in-room appliances such as a coffeemaker, microwave and fridge?
  • Can you control the heat or air conditioning from your room?
  • Does the hotel offer free fibre optic Internet, a charging station and desk so you can conduct business from your suite?

Check out Saskatoon hotel deals 

A good hotel should offer you some incentives and reasons to want to stay there. Besides looking at the reviews, see if you can find special Saskatoon hotel rates on packages that cater to certain activities.

Maybe you’re looking for a family fun night and can get a deal at a Saskatoon hotel with a waterslide, or you want to book a romantic getaway that offers a king-size bed jetted bathtub and as a bonus, a late check-out time?

You may not only score a deal but also receive some of special extras that will help you make your decision of what hotel in Saskatoon to book.
