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. I requested a smoking room so I already know to lower my expectations at this point. Check-in was easy, the staff I dealt with over the... More

Dear Guest, My sincere apologies for the discomfort you experienced with the mattress in the smoking room which is located in our old wing and is upcoming and slated for phase 2 of our renovation program. I would like to assure you that all our rooms do not have mattresses like that. All our non smoking rooms located in the... More

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

And yet, as someone said below, it got worse. Me and my friend aren't usually the type to complain or make an issue to a hotel about specific issues that bug us, but this has to be said. We were here from August 6-8 2013 and all we ask for any hotel is an internet connection and a hot tub... More

First and foremost I would like to sincerely apologise for the rudeness and poor comments made by any of our staff that offended you. I have discussed this with all our staff so that next time when something breaks down or does not work there will be a more appropriate response that does not sound so abrupt, rude or offensive...

Would I go there again? ... if they cleaned better maybe. I will agree with most reviewers that the cleanliness is not spectacular. I am sure the sheets are clean and they did an effort of cleaning. When it came to detail to cleanliness it was obvious there was none. Tub could use a good scrub and some Tilex to... More

Even though we are non smokers we and our friends took the last two smoking rooms as that was all that was available. The carpet was heavily stained, walls, trim, lamps etc were all yellow smoke coated in need of a wash. Bed was very old and hammock like. NO air conditioning working. Window was screwed closed so couldn't even... More

Everything about the EL was fantastic. I've stayed in budget accommodation and was sceptical about this one but my fears were put to rest when we walked into a clean room that didn't smell like cigarettes, even though the smoking rooms were 10 metres away. If I was running the hotel, I would have the smoking rooms at the end... More
