I stayed here on day one of a tour of Canada. It's well located, a short walk from Downtown (as the name would suggest!) My room was clean but dated. Breakfast didn't look appetising so I tried to find somewhere else close by. Don't follow my example: it was Sunday morning and there was nowhere close open at 8am.

I live in Calgary but had 5 friends coming from out of town so booked 3 rooms for us as we were attending a music festival, I requested connecting rooms and got what I asked for. The staff were so friendly and helpful. One employee went as far as coming outside and showing us where the public parking was. We... More

Nobody is going to feel impressed as they pull up to this Ramada. It's a bit dark and dated. But the guy at the front desk was friendly and efficient, the room was clean and comfortable, the Brewster bus to Banff stops right outside, and they gave us free coffee and muffins for breakfast. All good. My only complaint: we... More

If you are in the downtown core of Calgary, whether its for business or a night out. The Ramada Downtown on 8th is the perfect location. The staff were polite and helpful and the room was clean and the bed was so comfortable. We had just been out celebrating my birthday, and stayed one night in the 2 queen bed... More

Was there for 1 night with wife and two kids to visit the zoo. Location was good but overall condition and service not. Room was clean, but little things like dirty light switch (wanted to use a cloth to turn off and on), calking around sink was dirty and missing in areas, doors to room and balcony stuck making hard...

Dear Aaron G: Thank you for your comments. Disappointed to hear that our housekeeping efforts were not to your standards, or ours, on your recent visit with us. We have shared your guest experience with our staff and assure you we endeavor to do better. Many city attractions are nearby or, like the visited Calgary Zoo, easily accessible by the... More

I found the room very cold & could not control the AC as it is not room controlled. The steps going into the pool seemed lose & do not go deep enough in the pool to get out, I had a real problem with that. Other than that the staff if helpful, the food was good, room cleaned.

Dear Gail M, We appreciate your comments and thank you for choosing the Ramada while in Calgary. We read with interest your observation about the pool step and have since had our maintenance department address it for safety. The welfare of our guests is paramount and we are sorry you felt any degree of uncertainty using this otherwise highly enjoyable... More
