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.

The cost of the room was to high for what you get. Looks good from outside however the 70's called and they want there carpets drapes and bed spreads back. We stayed because of location but will not stay again I could put up with it being old and worn out for $69.

Pleased with the hotel. Room is a good size and clean with a flat screen tv. Beds are comfortable and it was not difficult to get room to right temperature. It is pet friendly with access to green spaces. The pool was very good. It was big and clean. The hot tub was awesome. It was very clean as well... More

We stayed here for two nights and several things impressed me. 1. the condition of the pool and hot tub room. Well maintained, clean and spacious. 2. The breakfast area. this was the biggest such room I have ever encountered and was very tastefully decorated. Certainly not an afterthought. There were some deadspots with the internet and I understand that... More

I chose this hotel based on location, and because they will let you stay with your pet. My daughter and I were in Calgary for a horse show and initially wanted a kitchenette. When we went to our room, it was located adjacent to the parking lot and predictably smelled like smoke (lots of people smoking outside their rooms so... More

We were in Calgary this past weekend, and was a last minute thing, to our surprise most of the hotels were booked. We drove around, called and was told they had a room at the Econo Lodge, the front desk guy i believe his name was Darrin was very helpful and polite, a joy to deal with on the phone... More

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!
