This must be one of the quietest hotels in Calgary and one of the cleanest. Beds are decent, the staff are good and the location is excellent. The continental breakfast is not good, but they are rarely good from any hotel.

This is our choice of hotel whenever we go to Calgary. The location is excellent (C-Train, McMahon Stadium, 16th Avenue) are all close by and you don`t have to fight the downtown traffic and congestion. The rooms are comfortable, and have everything you`d expect. Our room was in the midst of some small ceiling repair in the bathroom, but didn`t... More

We booked two rooms for one night. Likes: decent deal through Hotwire, discounted tickets to the Calgary Zoo (25% off), free parking. Neutral: continental breakfast was a little wanting. Disappointed: one room had a very strong odour (strong whiffs throughout the night), the pool/jacuzzi area was small and disappointing. Some of the other hotels in the area had water slides,... More

I would recommend this place to anyone. Great location, price was excellent. Very clean, parking was good, bed was very comfortable. My only wish is the free breakfast was till at least 11, yeah I know that's late but teenagers don't get up till then lol. We used the c-train quite a bit as it was right beside the hotel.... More

Pros: Fantastic Location right in the middle of the city. The price, for once, was actually something we considered affordable. The beds were decent, and the shower was fine. Cons: No wafflemaker. Toasters were not adjustable and burnt the toast. Needed more cleaning: we found a clothing sticker stuck to the doorframe and... a fairy wand under the mattress. What... More

The room was perfect, really nothing at all to complain about! This room was as if I was the first person to discover it. There was no smell of paint or anything like that, just a good example of a well cleaned and taken care of room. LRT is very close as is downtown. There are three very minor notes... More

I checked in. Went to my room. Was immediately confronted with a horrid smell, noticeable stains on the carpet, a considerably worn couch,in general a dark unwelcoming room. It didn't appear unclean but in significant need of a make over. I was on the ground floor with an external door. So adding all that together I decided that I would... More

Because I am cheaper than (insert stereotype here), I picked up this hotel on a certain deal website that rhymes with slice pine. For $91 per night (on a Friday) I got a room with two queens, a fridge and a microwave, that also had a decent enough pool. The good: The room was sufficiently big, and parking seemed pretty... More

Do not stay at this hotel. The service was outstanding but the rooms are completely unacceptable. It had a damp, musty odor. Baseboards in the bathroom were held together by zip ties. The carpet was dirty, and the front door appeared unsafe - looked damaged like it had been pried open. There was a homeless person who came by every... More
