I stayed here in early November for a night and I think the recent reviews are accurate. The photos do show hip stylish rooms but the decor is only so much make-up. The building itself is a bit shabby and yes, there are holes in the walls and a general impression of unfinished renos. Also on the down side is that the rooms really are dark - those fashionable colours just rob the rooms of any reflected light and the view from the windows of the parking lot and the busy highway don't inspire you to keep the curtains open. The bathroom in my room had a great shower in a very cramped space - not a problem for an overnight stay. On the up side, this motel offers very competitive prices and often runs specials. I think I paid $108 for the night - that's a great price for Calgary. And even with the funny hole in the wall, the room was snug and warm and quiet; I slept very well. It was seemed very clean and had a little fridge and a decent desk space with hassle-free wi-fi included. You wouldn't want to stay here without a car, but if you have a lot of the city to cover, the Centro Motel is a great location. You can get anywhere in a hurry. And bless them, they take pets - I didn't have any with me but I always appreciate that. For all these reasons I'm rating them VG, that and because when I didn't qualify for a $99 special because I made a same day booking, they still found a good rate for me.

As mentioned, we can confirm that updates have been made to our heating/cooling system in response to guest feedback to ensure a more quiet and effective room temperature regulation, which did result in a few blemishes that required finishing. We appreciate all of guest’s patience with the process and can assure everyone that all of our rooms are being looked after in a timely fashion.
We look forward to the next opportunity to welcome you, and perhaps your pet, back to Centro Motel!
