I've stayed at this Holiday Inn Express multiple times, and as a Platinum Elite member I have been treated quite well - upgraded rooms on each stay. The staff is very professional, but not quite as friendly as staff at other properties In Calgary I've stayed at. The hotel itself and the guest rooms are in very good shape, extremely... More

I have to say I was quite surprised by this hotel and the room. The room which was a suite was only $130 + tax. It was booked last minute so price was reduced. Even the regular prices are very fair for what you get and proximity to things. The suite was just as good if not better than rooms... More

As an elite platinum member, I was very upset about my stay in Calgary on February 17th. I pull at truck and trailer. We specifically called and asked if their parking lot was adequate to get into and out of with a larger rig. They told us it was. I get here and it was one of the smallest I've... More

Dear Mulebob , Thank you for your comments, I apologise if you feel that we have misled you , it was not our intention. Perhaps the size of the "Rig " was misjudged at time of reservation as we do take special parking requests for larger Coaches / Busses that we specifically block off and have reserved , this is...

After many attempts at trying to contact the hotel directly, I was unable to. No one answered the phone, instead it would ring once or twice then would go directly to the recorded message. It would have been much better had someone answered and asked it I would mind being put on hold. In fact, since I sat there and... More

Great rooms for the family. Large and very clean. Separate bedroom so kids can go to sleep on the pull out couch. Both rooms (living area and separate bedroom) have a large screen TV. The pool is great and water slide is lots of fun. A few shops and restaurants with in walking distance. The morning breakfast was just fine.

This hotel is easily accessible for those visiting the Calgary South area with a major shopping mall nearby. Free continental breakfast cinnamon buns, scrambled eggs, bacon, bagel, yogurt, cold cereals is great. Friendly staff and clean room and well maintained. There are also a few restaurants within easy walking distance. Would definitely stay here again

The hotel was very clean and well maintained. The heating system was very good considering the very cold weather outside. The staffs were very friendly and accommodating. The hotel can be accessed via Bus 81 from the Anderson LRT station and the bus stop is just about 100 meters to the hotel. They serve breakfast until 9:30am only. The food... More

This is NOT a convenient location for anything. Only 1 restaurant walkable. Hotel shuttle was great, very accommodating. Room was a bit grubby feeling, worn looking. Too isolated from everything, would not stay again. Staff was very helpful but just too far from anything. Heater also an issue, loud.

The hotel is located in South Calgary- if your stay will mostly be in and around Calgary south of downtown, it is a great spot. Tucked just off McLeod Trail it keeps traffic noise to a minimum. The free continental breakfast is great- scrambled eggs, bacon, bagels, cinnamon buns, cereal, apples & oranges & more there is something for everyone.... More
