We came for our band's performance in downtown Calgary. This hotel was only 8 minutes from the venue. I really liked the way we could walk right outside our door and end up outside. The room was a 2 queen. Fairly standard. Put together alright but not clean to the eye. I had some blood stains on my bed sheets.... More

I was charged for a missing chair out of my security deposit (which was not in the room when I entered). Hotels are not supposed to compensate missing items by charging to the guest credit card. This issue was resolved after few times complaining.

Convenient location and pleasant staff, she went above and beyond to assist us. Due to reviews, before I checked in I wasn't expecting to much from this place, but they're not as bad as ppl say, I liked the decent TV and firm mattress and it was 65 dollars so it's really good value

(2) Then at counter they told me that I have to deposit $150 as a security deposit. That I was not told when I called to book. It... More

The building is old, the linen is old, torn and stained. The breakfast is pointless, there are undesirable people lingering outside the hotel and its on a main road. On a positive note, it was cheap, had hot water and was local to lots of restaurant options. Find somewhere else to stay!
