I coach a Sr Girls basketball team that travels to Calgary 6-7 times a year and we always try to find a hotel that provides a home feeling! The staff here are amazing! I had a player suffer a serious injury and the front desk went well beyond to assist us in making her comfortable. When we offered our thanks... More

A free breakfast is provided upstairs which was basic but I loved the waffles.The ice... More

I know it's an "econo Lodge" but this place is loud.. Thin walls make it worse, sketchy people everywhere. The female manager doesn't seem to care about problems. BAD ATTITUDE. Find a place elsewhere not worth the money. Calgary is always busy so they think customer service isn't important, but it is.

2 of us went for a get away and to shop in Calgary, it was easy to get to, and had a pretty good price. The room was not huge but spacious enough for the 2 of us, the bed seemed a little dated but still comfortable enough to sleep, and the breakfast was basic but not bad for the... More

They are renovating the upper floor that have outside access. This is taking up parking. The parking was not good to begin with. Try to arrive before 5:00 to be able to park easy. I have stayed here many times because of the location. Since last spring they changed the Wi-Fi. Not for the better. It is quite slow. This... More

This ground floor unit had two queen beds - one had a bent leg, causing the bed to list. Fear of it breaking right off prevented us from bending it back. Which left us with the second bed. The springs were so significantly present that I was prevented from turning when laying straight. Not a comfortable position to hold for... More

Prompt attention at the check in with complete information I regards to amenities and operation of wifi. The room was very clean and well decorated, appears to be a fairly new renovation. The biggest complaint is the rubber under sheet, wow is that hot. Why they have that I don't know.

This was my second time staying here. First time was a one night stay and the second time was a two night stay, both were excellent stays! Rooms are always clean and very comfortable and front desk staff were extremely friendly as well as house keeping (as we did not need service we just needed a few things). I have... More

Excellent hotel, terrific location right between Chinook Centre (about 2 blocks north) and Southcentre (about 5 blocks south.) Great selection of restaurants close by, and even a delicious pizza shop next door that is open until 2am. Room was very clean, bathroom worked fine, and the three pools (including a children's wading pool) were clean and a good diversion for... More
