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!

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.

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.
