The contract leaves you powerless if you have issues. No refunds. Mandatory house keeping means no privacy. If you get mad and raise your voice to the staff they can disable your key and keep your belongings. Plus lots more scary demands. I won't even get into the quality of my room as I can not guarantee all the rooms... More

This was not a pleasant experience at all. The rooms were very dirty, stained sheets, terrible odor, poor customer service and all around a sorry state of affairs at this location. Buyer beware at this Howard Johnson Inn, take the time to read these reviews and if you visit this HoJo in person be sure to inspect the rooms first... More

This was a horrible experience! Our first stop in Calgary and we had reserved for 9 nights. We were on a business trip for over 30 days so budget was key. This place isn't even worth the low rate as it was disgusting. First, as I was walking into the office, which isn't attached to the rest of the rooms,... More

Terrible stay. No screens in the windows. Beds are curled in middle. Smells of old smoke. The kitchen had no knifes and when asked for some they said they do not have any. Room was not ready til 3:30. THEY FORGOT WE WERE WAITING FOR ONE!

Cheap hotel, close to downtown and easy access to bus and C Train, about 8mins walk to the Chinook mall. Front desk staff were helpful however the breakfast was very poor. I recommend this hotel if you want something cheap and close to different attraction.

I checked out april 22nd and on my return to BC found two $100 charges on... More
