Evening and night staff at front desk are just absolutely horrible - do not make you feel welcome - make you feel like running. This place takes a photo copy of your driver's license - have not stayed at any place that does the same. The owners are suspicious people and not friendly at all. Just NOT a good place... More

Bed was comfy. Teens yelling outside at 4am could be easily heard. Bathtub drain couldn't keep up with a shower. Bathroom floor warped from previous water damage. Soap and shampoo were nice. Had to go to front desk to borrow a hair dryer. Breakfast was ok but nothing to write home about. Remote control for TV was nice and basic.Fridge... More

These are a typical motel room, the kind that you can drive your car up to your door and unload; unless you are on the second floor then you will be hoofing it up a flight of stairs. The rooms are basic, nothing fancy. No fridge. Nothing fancy. If you stay during stampede week, the city's big tourist time, you... More

The motel is situated in what the locals call motel square. The area is handy to the main highway, light rail and any form of shopping. The rooms are clean, the rooms are a decent size with an old style television. The only fault, the breakfast, this motel serves their breakfast in a very compact reception area. You can either...

The rooms are clean, the staff is friendly. I was passed through Calgary and didn't plan on stopping but I was too tired to keep going so I stopped in and being on a budget, I didn't spend over $100 on a room which is really great! The only thing that was kind of annoying was the other people just... More
