Whether it was picking wild berries while hiking in the woods, splashing the day away at the beach, or visiting some exciting new attraction, some of our best summer memories come from the vacations we spent with our families.

You don’t have to travel far to make new memories. Conveniently located on the Trans Canada Highway, the Comfort Inn and Suites Medicine Hat hotel is located close to a number of events that are perfect for families looking for an exciting holiday destination.
