This was a last minute booking due to an ill relative in the nearby Foothills hospital. The room was clean, modern, and every thing was in good repair. There are plenty of restaurants nearby which are in walking distance without requiring crossing busy streets. My only complaint is that in the same complex of hotels there is another Econo Lodge...

Location is the only saving grace for this hotel. It is right on the train line and provides easy access to downtown trains. Hotel is old and outdated. Staff is iffy. Have stayed here 3 times and only one stay was ok. Staff can be nice one time and downright rude the next. Rooms are very small. Pool is out... More

My wife and I stayed here in July during the Calgary Stampede and we couldn't have stayed in a better place. The room was clean and comfortable. (Tip #1: There is no elevator so request a ground floor room.) Calgary is hopping during the Stampede so get your tickets and room(s) early! I had never been to Calgary and I... More

Okay, to some this property may not appear hidden but I have stayed for years in Calgary's Motel Alley and always thought this complex was a part of the neighbouring property. I noted it was separate when I was last in Calgary so I felt it warranted a try. Check-in was smooth but then, all of their properties seem to... More

We've stayed here several times before and have always had a pleasant stay. This time we stayed over on Halloween night and found the room clean and very quiet and the staff friendly. We like this location because it is close to downtown and to restaurants plus it is only half a block from a C-train station. This time we... More

Ladies at checkin very friendly and helpful. Hallways could use new carpet. Rooms carpet ok. Beds clean and good, lots of pillows. Shower great hot water. Good value for money. Would stay there again. Right in the middle of hotel city. Oh... get 15% off Denny's when you are staying here.

Very friendly front desk staff. Room was very clean. Breakfast was goo. Could of maybe had yogurt and more fruit. Good location near stadium and subway. Comfortable beds. Parking spots were a little tight. Overall a very nice, clean inexpensive hotel.

We stopped in for the night on the way from BC to Ontario. We needed a good sleep and this place had good reviews. The staff was friendly, the rooms were clean, and the beds were comfortable.
