I slept on top of the bed because I was not comfortable sleeping in the bed. Wasn't very clean. the so called breakfast they provided with the... More

We stayed here for one night one our way to the Rockies. The beds and pillows were comfy. The room was clean. It looked like it just recently had a face lift. Newer ac unit. Mini fridge and coffee maker. Continental breakfast- was just meh. Overall I would def recommend this hotel

A nice basic place to stay. The staff was very kind and helpful. The location is always a plus, as it is so easy to get to anywhere in the city. The rooms are simple and cosy. New mattresses, some new televisions, and new windows all add to the ambiance.

The location is excellent since it is close to Chinook center and nearby restaurants. The cleanliness of the room was impressive but the breakfast selection should be improved.

Great location for visits to Southern Alberta Eye Centre or Rockyview hospital. However we paid $70 the week before the Stampede but $184 when the Stampede was on for the same room. Needless to say the hotel was not full the second day we stayed. We felt $184 was rather overpriced for the standard of hotel.The front desk staff were... More

1. Right after opening up the door i really smell some wierd smell which was not pleasant at all. 2. As it's super hot i turned the air conditioning on (which gave me the feel of riding in a helicopter) and set it on the lowest. Even after 45 to 50 mins it doesn't cool the room at all. It's...

Room smelled, first building second floor looks like it could collapse, coach roaches lurking about, walls are not sound proof, can hear room next door getting their romp on 😊 they do offer watered down orange juice and 1 waffle maker but no one will make it for you!
