As my title indicates, I have stayed at this hotel once before (reviewed June 29, 2014). This time around (April 15th – 16th) I was still relatively pleased with my stay, although, the lacks of tongs for the included breakfast still seem to be a problem (as pointed out in my previous review). Two tongs are not sufficient when there... More

To be honest, I booked this hotel just for the price. I was on a longer stay so wanted to keep the costs low. But the hotel was surprisingly good. It is professionally maintained and clean. Took a room with the kitchenette and it was very convenient. Beds are well made and linens are clean. The hotel is far from... More

My wife and I stayed here for two nights and found it to be quiet and comfortable. A good value for the cost. The only complaint was that the housekeeping staff should be taught how to use a dust cloth. I dusted the lamps and bed headboards myself. The shower head in the bathroom of room number 114 is badly... More

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
