The room was very clean and comfortable wished we could have stayed longer. As well as it was pet friendly. The swimming pool was well kept as well. The continental breakfast was excellent . If we were to come back to Cagary we would certainly stay here

I stayed here three nights, and I'd certainly stay another three. The hotel's prices are probably about as good as you'll get in Calgary. The location is great, as several shopping malls are nearby, and other outlet centres are there as well. I had a room with one king bed at the lower level of the hotel, and it was... More

We were going to the Tragically Hip concert and decided to leave the little one with family and enjoy an entire night out. We really only needed a place to sleep, and I just could not justify the OUTRAGEOUS prices of a bed in some very average hotels along McLeod and downtown (we know Calgary well although we live outside...

Part of the hotel is a motel under renovation. I was given a king bed room at the end the dilapidated floor. Service from front desk is terrible. When I called to say that it is chilly and I needed help with the thermostat, I was told "figure it out yourself. Why do you need someone to come up and... More

I stayed here for nine nights while taking a course in Calgary. It was one of the less expensive places to stay in town, and close to where i was taking the course so i chose to stay here. In the nine nights I would have to say 8 out of the 9 nights i slept quite well. The first... More

I stay at this hotel frequently. Rooms are better than expected in some cases if you get a recently renovated one. Has pool, weight room, office nook, large continental breakfast area. Staff is friendly. Great Filipino restaurant next door.

Econo Lodge is always kind of a question mark so I researched this hotel thoroughly before booking. I was still kind of skeptical. I was very pleasantly surprised. The hotel is clean and nice, the staff is pleasant and the pool and hot tub are heavenly. The bed is super comfy and the linens were nice. The room is a... More

The rooms were clean and comfortable. The bathroom was a bit mildewy, but not bad. The location is great, as was the front desk staff! We made a quick stop for the breakfast - it was nothing to brag about, but still a nice quick meal. I would definitely stay here again.

This was a good place to stay. The price was right and breakfast was included. We went up for a wedding so this was just a place to sleep for one night. You can tell that the place is old but it has been decently kept up. The bed was comfortable and the pillows were great.
