Good place to sleep close to Winnipeg.Posted Jun 16, 2015
Pros: The room was clean and cool and we slept nicely. It was convenient to have a restaurant on site. Too bad the food was way below average.
Cons: 1. Desk staff was "too busy" to check me in. 2. Breakfast buffet sub par, burnt muffins, lukewarm buffet food, omelet lady stressed for no reason
Location: Go to Tim Horton's for breakfast instead.
We came to Winnipeg for the world cup. But, six months in advance the entire city was booked. So, we searched for nearby places and this was a good option. We didn't check in until after 11 pm. The desk staff at night left a lot to be desired. They were frazzled and unfriendly. Two women were there, one refused to look up from her computer as she was (presumably) engrossed with her task at hand. The second lady was working with a customer who wanted to check in and was checking the price. The customer in front of me was told her room price had just increased $25 and when asked why, the desk worker shrugged. No answer or reason, just shrugged. The lady left. Then I asked to check in and she gave me an annoyed look. I said, I have a reservation. Then she was fine. She may have thought I was price checking but she could have been a lot nicer, especially for the time of night. I understand that it's hard to find workers who want to do this time of night but it didn't give me a good impression upon check in. The water park was fun for a little while, it is more suited to smaller children but it was a perfect morning distraction. The restaurant was nice to have on site, but it wasn't very good. Service was extremely slow and inattentive (begging for coffee refills). The muffins were burnt, the buffet food was lukewarm and the woman running the omelet station was very stressed out even though we were one of only two families in there at that hour of the morning.

Adequate Hotel - NOT worth the pricePosted Sep 29, 2014
We had a room with 2 queen beds - extremely small, no room to walk on the "far" side of the beds only in between them. Mold in the bathroom.

Portage La Prairie Canad InnPosted Sep 3, 2014
Pros: nice area
Cons: maybe offer some kind of free breakfast/discount, considering you are already paying out the wazoo for a "better" experience/room, which didnt happen.
Location: close to winnipeg, but outdoors smelled really badly like onions... not sure what THAT was about.
Expedia booked a different room than what i was expecting, and the Portage Canad Inn was dirty, smelled like mold due to piles of wet towels and garbage in the hallways, and the staff was rude. Overall NOT the best experience.

Great valuePosted Jul 10, 2014
Pros: Very quiet. Good restaurant. Excellent pool area, especially for kids.
Cons: We wish we had been told about the buffet dinner and also the wi-fi by the clerk who checked us in.
Location: The hotel has everything you really need for a night's stay.
This hotel has great family appeal with a lovely pool and waterslide area. The spacious lobby is very welcoming and everything is well kept and clean. If I had one complaint, it would be the gas station-variety toilet paper holders that don't turn. This seemed rather cheap in an otherwise classy hotel. We enjoyed the pool and water slide area but were disappointed to learn that there had been a buffet dinner which ended just before we got to the restaurant and we wished we had been told about this at check-in. However, the food we ordered from the menu was reasonably priced and very good, like home-cooked. I would recommend this hotel to anyone and would definitely stay there again.

An Ok stayPosted Nov 15, 2012
Beds were comfortable and the place was clean. Reception staff were friendly and professional. Waitress in Tavern United was inattentive; brought food but had to be asked for cutlery, napkins and condiments. Called for room service (breakfast) at 7;15 a.m. and was told that it wasn't avilable as the waitress was the only one in the Alto's restaurant and she could leave to deliver a room service order.

Canad Inn ReviewPosted Nov 3, 2012
Internet connection was good. Restaurant cooks made great food. Very comfortable stay. One negative - the hallway to my room did not smell very good at all and dirty plates from someone's room service sat in the hallway for hours...it should have been picked up by a staff member when passing by. I would definitely stay here again.

What a wait!Posted Nov 22, 2011
The hotel is obviously an older hotel. It will need a lot of upgrades in the near future. But what got us is that we needed an extra blanket and it took ALL DAY. My wife asked at around 10 am to get us another blanket after she stopped by the room in between conferences. By supper it still was not in the room. After supper we checked again and still no blanket. So she went back to the front desk and asked again. Two hours later at 10pm we finally got a blanket. Unacceptable. We heard that others in our conference didn't even get there room cleaned and they asked for it to be done. I guess when your one of the only hotels around you can slack off on service cause you don't have options to go anywhere else.
