Bookied this for 2 nights prior to leaving Calgary, have to admit was quite shocked at how good it actually was.
Have never stayed in a 'motel' and was very pleased with this type of accomodation...booked on spur of moment, price looked good, pictures looked great, free wifi and free breakfast...perfect! Turned up and did contempate turning round, glad I didnt!
Hotel receptionist was very pleasant and helpful, much better than most of 'chain' receptionists!!!
Ground floor room was more than acceptable, in fact very impressed, modern bathroom area, great shower didnt encounter any cold showers! However, laminate floor and wheels on beds are a bit awkward with kids or when you sit on the bed and you can also hear people aboce walking around, maybe shouldve put some better underflooring under it. The air conditioning unit worked very well but noisy, so turned it off and the water swilling around was just as noisy, luckily not a
light sleeper but can understand that it would be a problem for people who are.
Rooms are quite small, so have to agree with others that have said its great for a few days would hate to spend anything more than that...
Breakfast, bearing in mind it was included in price, wasnt expecting much but it was much better than the breakfast at the big chain hotel I had just spent 2 weeks in!!! British cereals!!! Toast, jam, honey, marmalade and peanut butter!!! Pastries!!! Tea, Coffee, Hot Chocolate, Herbal Teas!!! Orange & Apple juice!!! Yoghurts!!! Fruits!!! Granola bars!!! Porridge...was very very impressed...nothing ever ran out and lady at breakfast was forever topping things up or straightening things. Two very minor issues 1) plastic cutlery...which you struggle to butter your toast with & 2) not enough seating...I can imagine that at some point there wont be enough seating for everyone.
I would definately stay here again in a heartbeat...
