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.

Honestly the worst stay i've ever been at, room was dirty and the employees were rude and not helpful. Would never stay again. Was very disappointed in the breakfast and also not worth the money. Lamp was broken before we came in the room, and was too scared to take off the sheets of the bed. Room was not up... More

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.

Service and were good. The price was better than surrounding properties. Proximity to Macleod Trail was good and bad: it was easy to get around the city from there, but the traffic never let up. Despite the traffic, we slept well.
