Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites Whitecourt Southeast – Whitecourt Alberta

I did a blind booking when I had the opportunity to stay up North in Whitecourt, Alberta and we just randomly bid a hotel as we had no idea what’s what. We were lucky enough to have won Holiday Inn Express & Suites for this stay, and I’m sure glad we did! The hotel and the room was very nice and the staff was extremely friendly! The location was really good as it’s not far from amenities, yet far enough from the highway and train that it was quiet.

Once we got to our room, we were blown away with the amount of space we had! It was huge inside with all the amenities you’d want – from mini fridge to a microwave! We’re never picky with what we get and this room, we had 2 queen sized beds and it was nice! Everything was clean and no funky smell – which is always a good thing.

The bathroom decent in size with enough counter space! It was pretty standard, and it was also clean with fresh towels and stuff. It’s not spacious, but yet, how much room do you need in a bathroom…

They used Bath & Body Works bathroom amenities in this hotel, which is very nice. It smell really good and you know it’s a good brand. I appreciate it! The last Holiday Inn Express I stayed at used the same line, but a different scent – so it’s a fun way to experience it!

Overall, the stay was extremely enjoyable and comfortable. They had free wifi internet, free parking and complimentary breakfast! To see the room walk-through, check out the clip below!

Soban – Whitecourt, Alberta

Whitecourt was where we decided to stopover during our little road trip. We got checked in and went out to find some food. We found Soban Restaurant as I had noodle soup in mind — and they would have udon or something! This restaurant was in one of the back streets but not tucked away on that street that offered Korean and Japanese cuisine.

We were the only tables there and we saw a few people do take out meals which was pretty neat as it was quite late and people still order out! We started with Edamame which was a big plate, and pretty good!

We both ordered udon, we got their Shrimp Udon which was actually tempura shrimp with udon and it was pretty good! It came in large bowls and they both started with a salad.

The other bowl of udon we got was their Beef Udon and yes, the picture doesn’t do its justice, but it was actually really good! The beef, they used their Korean Bulgogi beef for it and it worked perfectly!

Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our evening meal! It hit the spot and it was just good!
