We always stay at the Nisku when we are flying from YEG, the rooms are very nice and very affordable. You can park your vehicle at the hotel while you are away and take the very convenient shuttle. The new Montana’s restaurant is also great!
Used to look forward to my stay here
I work all over the province and sometimes I end up in the Edmonton area. I always enjoyed my stays at this hotel until now. The restaurant and bar have now turned to a franchised name “Montana’s”. Myself and my work crew used to enjoy the chicken wings at this hotel. Now they are breaded FRANCHISE Montana’s gross wings. Even the bar staff said that the food isn’t as good as before. Probably going to have to re think accommodations for the Edmonton area. Too bad, because this was a good spot.
My go-to hotel near the airport
We have stayed at the Nisku Inn 4 or 5 times now and it has become our go-to spot anytime we go through the airport. The price vs quality is the best value you’ll get in the area as far as I have discovered.
The staff has always been helpful and the indoor water feature adds a great atmosphere to the whole place.
The rooms are clean, comfortable and quite large.
The hotel is currently under construction so I would advise asking for a room further away from this if your plans include sleeping in.
Beware of extra charges.
I stayed at the Nisku Inn on November 10, 2018, before travelling south for a golf trip the next day. On Hotels.com I reserved a room at a quoted price of 91 Canadian dollars, which was supposed to include parking. When I arrived at the reservation desk I was informed that parking was free for only one night and I ended up paying 151 dollars for five additional nights of parking in the distant lot. Next time I would only stay at the Nisku Inn if I arranged parking at Park and Fly, but I will likely take a different Inn next time. The recent renovations were not nearly as impressive as expected anyway, and the free full breakfast was not available before I had to go to the airport..
The staff were very helpful and informative. While there was no computer available in the lobby, the manager allowed me to use an office computer. A continental breakfast is provided – if your flight is too early to have breakfast, the coupon can be used in the dining room/pub for a discount on your dinner. There is a shuttle service to the airport, which was a primary consideration in selection. Although undergoing renovations, the hotel was clean. The rooms were good – clean and well appointed. There was no listing for the television channels available and the front desk had only one copy available. The shuttle service provided was excellent.
