Stayed for 2 nights and would recommend this motel- it bats above its head in terms of comfort if you're looking for a convenient place to stay in a good area and you have a car with you. The property has been thoughtfully updated. Highlights: clean room (clearly spic & span wood/tile floors with a rug around the bed &... More

Staff is very friendly, rooms are very clean, and there is very nice decor. The complementary breakfast was very good. Centro is in a good area, and close to major intersections. You don't hear the traffic at all in the rooms. There are great blackout curtains in the rooms.

I struggled to rate this motel because I typically don't stay in motels. I don't like having to open the door onto freezing cold weather, I don't like tracking dirt and snow into my room, and I don't like having to put my jacket on to go get my continental breakfast. That being said, I will explain my rating. Things... More

Thank you for your candid and detailed review about your recent stay. Given that we are a motel offering, we feel that our product and value exceed the traditional offerings of this type of property.

People might be tempted to pass on the Centro because it doesn't look all that appealing from the outside, but it really is a pretty decent place to stay. It has virtually no amenities, no pool, no gym, not much else besides a parking lot and place sleep. The rooms were clean and had an open feel with nice gray... More

Staying at the Centro was a last minute choice accommodation in Calgary and a diversion from our itinerary of central city hotels. We were concerned about what to expect and being isolated and away from town. In the end we needn't have worried. Centro is on 16th Av NW which is also the number one Trans Canadian Highway. So there... More

I'm giving this 4/5 because most budget motels aren't up to the level of Centro. If this were a moderate to premium hotel, I sure wouldn't give a rating this high.

This motel is a great budget option if you don't need a full service hotel. While it doesn't look like much from the street when you are inside the room you feel like you are inside a W Hotel room. The decor is very modern, the bed is awesome and the shower is great. The room was very clean, the... More

They call it a boutique motel, but it's an average older motel with inside renovations. The room is comfortable and is not such bad value for your money.. Breakfast food was poorly presented, with a small eating area. Staff need to be better trained.

Motel is a mess. It looks amazing on first glance, but then it ends. The outer walkways of the motel smell of urine at all times. The staff were quite cold and not at all accommodating or friendly.
