Good drive on the freeway all the way to Winnipeg. Only about 470 km today with a quick stop at the Manitoba Automobile museum where we ran into a Aussie who lives now in the local area.

TravelPod Member ReviewsBEST WESTERN PLUS Pembina Inn & Suites Winnipeg
Hotel was clean. AC units are kind of noisy and the bathroom is a little small but overall the hotel room was nice and had a bar fridge.
Very average hotel breakfast. There is an evening snack available too. They claim hot food available from 7pm to 10om but really in our case this meant Campbell's soup and crackers and a few munchies like tortilla chips, pretzels and some chip mix.
Our preteen daughter was very offended that hot chocolate was only available at breakfast whereas coffee and tea were always available.
