The hotel is in the town center, a short walk away from everything. It's in the middle of a bussy road, but the rooms are quite quiet. The lobby is big with a small shop. The rooms are accessable with the elevator. They are spacious and clean, with two beds, SAT TV, phone. You have a coffe and tea maker... More

Traveled to Calgary on business 9/20-9/24. Hotel was in a convenient location. Rooms had no air-conditioner. Was provided a very small box fan with a cord not long enough to allow the fan to reach the window. (The weather that week was warm for Calgary). We had 4 rooms. 1 room was moved due to bad TV. 1 room had... More

We stayed for one night after landing at Calgary airport - the beginning of a three week stay in Canada. The staff were very helpful friendly on arrival – but different staff were very slow and unhelpful on departure. The room we were given was big with a Jacuzzi in the corner and the bed was comfy (but may have... More

The rooms are ok, nothing special, but the staff in the restaurant and the lobby were very friendly and helpful. The location in downtown is great, the pool is a great plus for the children.

Came on business. Couldn't find another downtown hotel for less than $300/n but this was only $150/n. Nothing special about the hotel. Rooms were not bad and confortable. Had a couple of hairs in the sink and shower but no big deal. No minifridges in room. Hotel is older but again no big deal. Right in downtown and within walking... More

The Ramada is closer to a motel than a full service hotel. The room I was in was updated on the surface, but the bed was still motel-quality, and was not geared to business travel (e.g. no plug or phone at the desk). The lobby is very dated and I would not recommend eating there. Concierge staff was not knowledgeable... More

During a thee week trip of Canada and USA this was the most expensive and worst place I stayed. The room was an ok size, the bed comfortable and TV and facilities fine.

Once arriving in calgary and at the Ramada they informed my girlfriend and myself that our 50% coupon was not going to be accepted. My girlfriend had confirmed with the manager before she booked the trip that she had a 50% off coupon and... More

The only reason i would stay at this hotel is for its central location. After arriving from a long haul flight the staff were very unhelpful. There was not car parking avaliable. The staff then gave us incorrect directions to a car park. We had to get back to the hotel and ask again. The next morning when we asked... More
