I stayed in a room with 2 Queen beds. It had TV with satellite and free wifi. There was a fridge and microwave. The bed and pillows were just okay. The main room was dated but okay. However the bathroom is badly in need of repair. I'm sure if was as clean as the maid could get it. The black... More

Stayed here during the Calgary Expo 2012 as it was one of the only affordable places not booked up the day before the event. I should've taken this as a sign because from the moment I stepped in to check-in I felt something was off. The owners of this place are so nosy and watch you every time you enter... More

So I'm not sure how much the 'revamped and refurnished' reviewer got payed to bluff, or maybe such low standards exist... Have you ever been in a place where you don't want to touch anything, want to keep the lights off so you avoid seeing obscure life forms creeping up walls & you pray no junkie will break in to...

Dark, smelly, hair all over the bathroom, toilet unclean, very dirty carpet, unidentifiable stuff on walls, huge bright "security" light right next to window, need I go on???? If you... More

The most disgusting hotel I have ever seen, and If you had to stay there bring some bleach, and If you go there do not pay up front,check your room out first, then pay!!

Our paraplegic stepsister is staying at the Olympia Motel as social services put her there. When in trouble we tried to get through to her and the owner wouldn't let us speak to her. Upon numerous calls to the office the nasty owner would not put us through and we had to call the Calgary Police. I would not recommend... More
