Sprawling Casino Resort with Spring Break Dates Available
Camrose, Alberta, is a peaceful place, with tree-lined streets and a quiet creek that meanders through the city. But just a five-minute drive from downtown Camrose, Best Western Plus Camrose Resort & Casino provides an energetic contrast—its attached casino has 200 new slot machines, as well as blackjack, roulette, and poker tables. The hotel’s main stage often hosts theater productions and concerts, with upcoming shows like the Moon Dogs (March 29–30) and Memory Lane, a tribute to the music of the '40s, '50s, and '60s (April 6). Inside the hotel itself, there's a mini indoor water park, replete with a water slide and a spraying fountain. This Getaway offers a last-minute spring break option for those looking to try their luck at the casino and enjoy a day of water-park fun.
Beautifully appointed double-queen rooms provide plenty of space to stretch out after a swim. You can use your dining credit for Alberta rib-eye steak sandwiches or hearty lasagna at Eats Restaurant, then head to the casino to hit the slots. In the morning, fill up with a complimentary continental plate.
