    I've stayed here twice now & found both stays to be excellent. I work for a Hotel in another city, so I know what to watch for, and can say this spot is solid (not that I am picky though, by any means). Just saying this is a viable option & I would definitely stay again. Rooms are clean, well... More

    This is one of many hotels on a short strip of Banff Trail, just off the Trans Canada. I picked this hotel because it was one of the lowest priced options with good reviews on both Google and tripadvisor. I stayed here this past week on the fourth floor of the tower, which is all non smoking. It was a... More

    Clean rooms, comfortable beds, very close to C-Train station, good amenities like quest laundry, pool, hot tub, fitness room and included a continental breakfast etc. Parking included. A large selection of travel brochures for other Calgary and area attractions. Staff had a billboard for Stampede events and lots of "Must do" brochures.

    I booked online and chose a slightly more expensive "Courtyard Room", thinking it would be quieter than a regular room. However, the name is a misnomer - it's really a "Parking Lot" room. It was in a typical two-storey motel building with access to the upper rooms via a balcony. My room was had a kitchenette, but it was old... More

    We stayed here on our way to Jasper. As an Econo Lodge it was a nicer motel than expected. Unfortunately when we arrived in the evening there was only 1 parking spot available which was as far away from our room as it could have been. The staff at check in had a "could care less" attitude and quite frankly... More

    Huge rooms. Wonderful beds. Indoor pool and hot tub. Wifi that's actually high speed. Free (albeit mediocre) breakfast. Fitness center. Laundry facilities. Clean rooms and public spaces. Very friendly and helpful staff. This Econo Lodge is a giant step above its peers in the budget hotel category.

    When I booked the hotel I was aware of our room being located in the older part of the hotel (didn't think it could be that bad), however I needed a room to hold 3 adults and 3 kids and not much else to be had for time of Calgary Stampede (if you don't want to pay through the teeth).... More

    Good price for the location. Nothing fancy and the breakfast wasn't the greatest. The train rattled the room every few minutes when it went by. Rooms were clean and rollaway bed we requested was in the room when we arrived which is a first for us. Usually we have to ask after we get to a room when it's pre... More
