The room was old, dated, dirty and smelt like pee. They said it was the fridge that they had just defrosted that day. I will say that the people that work there are extremely nice and when I called about the smell they came over right away to try and fix it and left us some air freshener. The beds... More

We spent one night here and we were happy it was only one night. Our bathroom was third world. The bathroom looks like the 1960's and has not been renovated since then. My daughter turned on the water in the sink and it was plugged and would not drain. I called maintenance and it took the man quite some time... More

We stayed here from June 22 through June 27th. Was a little apprehensive because it was our first trip to Calgary and the price was cheap We were pleasantly surprised. The staff we met were very nice, front desk and cleaning. Room was clean, everything worked, free reliable wifi. Continental breakfast in the morning was very good. Location was good,... More

There was kind of good news and not so good news with this one. First for the bad and it had mostly to do with the chain. I called the central number in Jan. 2015 to make a 2 night reservation for July for the Calgary Stampede. I talked to an Asian lady who could barely speak English and reserved... More

All we care about in a motel is clean and a decent value . Hopefully quiet enough to get a good sleep . This fit the bill perfectly . We checked in just after 11 pm and the front desk person had just come on shift . He made a very good impression by being extremely friendly and twice said... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review - it is very helpful for other guests to be able to get the guests perspective and an honest review. I admit the parkinglot is sometimes a struggle especially where some people park in very strange ways. We try to keep a good eye on it to assist with the... More

When I checked in everything was good. The staff was great.. laundry room was clean enough.. room was ok. There was a smell in the room but it kinda went away when I turned the a/c on. I had to wait about out 15 mins for the hot water to kick in to shower. The room was comfortable but I... More

Our one night stay was what we expected for under $100, all in. The service was quick with the checkin. Our second floor room was non smoking, microwave, fridge, quiet, firm comfortable mattress, hot shower without any cold snaps, plain muffins, toast coffee, cereal in the lobby for breakfast. No surprises, just the way I like it. I'd stay again.... More

Folks at Canada's Best Value motel in Calgary are trying hard. They are friendly, attentive, and really keen to make this work. I am sorry folks but this place needs some serious help. The rooms are kept clean and daily, the maid service comes to replenish towels and bathroom bits like shampoo and soap. The atmosphere is depressing. The rooms... More

Having previously visited this place before I will state that it only for convenience. Old rooms and an even older bathroom that need renovation real soon. The good parts are its clean, quiet, good beds with crisp sheets and fluffy towels. The location is as good as it gets for a traveller, right on the highway and Boston Pizza and... More
