Reasonably priced, clean and quiet. Definitely not high end hotel but location is great and people friendly. Can't complain really, A/C wasn't the best but temperature was cool enough not to need much. Quick access to wedding we were going to. Super clean!

Our stay here from June 13th – June 25th was good. We did not experience any difficulties during our stay. I always found the staff at this hotel to be courteous and helpful, especially Darren and Joey at the front desk. Our room (114) was always ready and clean when we returned from our various activities. Included in the room... More

Decent rooms, comfortable beds, friendly staff, great location in South Calgary near Chinook Centre. We have stayed at this hotel on several occasions and keep coming back because of the value. We highly recommend Econo Lodge South as good accommodation for the price conscious traveler.

We stayed there for two nights. Good location, close to the Chinook mall. Rooms are average for a hotel of this class. The hotel itself clean and the staff was friendly. Pool was a nice addition. The breakfast was terrible -absolute no choice -boiled eggs and DIY waffles for two days.

Stayed here on business for 1 night. The rooms a clean and quiet and the beds are comfortable. The TV had a poor signal (digital signal, but took a while for the pixelation to settle after changing channels). The breakfast was good (nothing too special). Service was okay (not very professional).

Stayed here for two nights November 2013 for business. I picked the location because it was right down the road from where I had to be for an early morning meeting the next day.

This hotel/motel was quite clean with some great ammenities. The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful. There was a nice pool and excercise room. A continential breakfast was offered every morning. In terms of location, very conveniently located to transit and access to downtown Calgary is quick. It's right on Macleod trail so there are lots of restaurants... More

Spent 3 weeks here last year and couldn't fault the place. It was immaculate, bed was fresh every day and the towels. Everything was clean and just a really great place to stay! Staff were friendly and loads of great places locally to visit, including the Chinook shopping mall. Limericks was a fab pub within crawling distance! Loved it

I would have only rated the hotel itself 3 but the front desk staff was so nice I have no hesitation bumping up a star just because of them. The hotel itself is a very ordinary motel type establishment. It is the kind of place we stay at if we are blowing through a town or city in North America... More
