Like mentioned above. Access is a bit difficult. Once you figure it out it becomes easy. Nice hotel with nice rooms. Pool is great. Hotel was very busy. Reception could have been better. Only complaint was the air conditioning unit in the rooms. When it clicked on it would wake me up and blast freezing cold air for 10 minutes... More

This hotel is next to Macleod Trail but not accessible from it. Fortunately, my passenger had stayed there before and was able to direct me. You have to turn off Macleod Trail, up to a 3-way stop and go around a strip mall before you can turn into the hotel parking lot. Check in was quick and easy. Our room... More

This is an update review to my review dated August 12, 2012. I am happy to report that this hotel continues to be very good. It is clean, the staff is courteous, the furniture and TVs are in good shape... However, we asked at the front desk this morning to please fix the clogged drain in our bathroom shower. We... More

Nice hotel. The beds were comfy, room was large. Easy access to and off Macleod Trail. Close to mall. Breakfast was disappointing, not much to choose from? Tim Hortons just down the road. Staff was great, check in and check out was quick. Would stay again.

What a nice hotel. We stayed 3 nights. The beds are wonderful and the shower is delightful. Pet friendly too. Saw so many dogs! My blue heeler was as spoiled as we were! Totally recommend this wonderful hotel. The staff is so helpful and efficient.

We enjoyed the efficient and friendly check-in staff. A good breakfast is included, although I'd like to see more fruit offered. We had a roomy and very clean junior suite. The hotel is handy to all of SE Calgary. It was a very busy weekend in Calgary. The hotel was fully booked, but very quiet.

This Hotel refuses to take responsibility for properly cancelled reservations made through their partner Booking.com on their behalf. The web site falsely advertises no charge cancellation up to 5 days before check in. The Hotel however has a policy of no refunds up to 8 days before checking in. This is not displayed for public information through their partner's service.... More

Came to Calgary for work for what was supposed to be a few days. The stay stretched out to three weeks. Thank goodness this place was so accommodating. When I went to extend my stay they said they were fully booked up with regular rooms and all they had available was the spa (?) room. I knew my company would... More

I took a cab from Calgary airport to this Holiday Inn Express and was concerned that I would not have a car for the week, but this hotel has some interesting restaurant choices in easy walking distance. The rooms are very large, clean and modern and the hotel "feels" new. The bathrooms are also spotlessly clean and the beds are... More
