We saw mixed reviews for this hotel and were a little reluctant to book. However with most of the downtown area booked up, we took a chance. Luckily we were in the building across the street fro the bar. Our room was clean, quiet and comfortable. Although the décor is dated, it was roomy and fit our needs. Dave, the... More

So, so, so bad. I have stayed in some dive hotels as I like a good deal but this was by far the worst. The lady who checked us in was rude, and charged us more for the night than we had booked at. We stayed in the building across from the main building/bar/office, although others have said their accommodation... More

We selected the Shamrock since it wasn't far from the Calgary Stampede and thought we could walk to the event. No way. As we drove up, we could see that the area was a dilapidated industrial area with lots of boarded up businesses. There was a woman with tattoos, smoking heavily and pacing back and from in front of the... More

There are good point to this hotel. The beds are good and the doors lock. The location was good in the respect it was only a short walk to the stampede and near to bus stops. The free wifi worked well, even if you had to keep signing in. Having a washing machine and dryer on our floor was a... More

Stayed in the shamrock hotel on July 3rd for Canada day weekend and it was hands done one of the worst experiences of mine and my friends life. We came in for the Calgary stampede and upon entering the room it was almost like walking into a horror movie. There were stains all over the carpets and walls, there was... More

Probably one of the worst Hotels I stayed at (for the value of money) It was like a hostel that was over priced. 1. They had no extra towels (our shower leaked so we cleaned up the floor with one of the towels they provided and would not give us extra - they couldn't even cause they had no extra... More

My wife myself and our 6 month old son stayed in shamrock I forget the room number it was in a different building for the bar and check in. This meant no loud music or drunk ppl trying to sing. We enjoyed the room slept well and cozy Staff were respectful and when we needed them they wasted no time.

Alright whiners, it's time for a little reality check! The Shamrock is an older building with a bar on the ground level. The building is located near train tracks on the outskirts of an industrialized area. A quick internet search and a glance at Google maps will reveal all of these things to prospective guests. The building is quite old,... More

It was clean and fairly quiet, considering there was a big bar with a band in it. Bed was comfy. It has central heating, and it was a bit cold, but there was sufficient bedding that I didn't get cold sleeping. I ate some Won Ton soup in the bar, and it was great. All in all pretty good for...

Ok partying at The Shamrock on New Years no way, but we did and we had an awesome time. It had been many years since I was last there. They had readied their INFAMOUS TAVERN" for the party. Things didn't start off well, we where there early to have some dinner and they were not prepared with enough staff for... More
