I spent 6 nights at this hotel. I found it to be close to downtown without being in the midst of everything. Although a car was required, the entire town was easily accessible. The room was comfortable, clean and well supplied. I would recommend this hotel for anyone on a budget.

Arriving I found stains on the sheets in my room, luckily it was a two bed room so I used the other bed. This was an airport location so it is expected that guests leave early but the breakfast was not open until 6:00am so I did not receive the value of breakfast. For the cost I would expect more services and earlier breakfast. On a bright note the shuttle drive to the airport was very friendly and helpful.

Stayed in this hotel 2 nights in early June as we were meeting family arriving from Germany prior to setting off on a camping trip. The room was clean and well furnished, lobby and common areas very nice, location was airport so only one restaurant nearby but the food at the Moxies flagship location was fabulous. However the hottub was out of comission during our stay, and we also had an issue with the Pay per view. The remote was not working well, loaded a movie we did NOT want. We immediately called the front desk who informed they would send the "Shuttle Driver" to fix the problem. He never arrived. We phoned again as we could not even exit the movie. The front desk called back TWO HOURS later to inform us they could not do anything and we would have to pay. the best part was in the morning having to argue the point with the manager until the gentleman who regularly deals with cable infomed her they had been having problems with the vcable provider all week. only then did she drop the charge for the movie. This treatment for a Diamond Elite Member ( someone who uses the Best Western very frequently) is unnaceptable. The staff member who came to the rescue was extremely apologetic.

The in room hot tub was excellent and absolutely worth the price. The room was nice and it had everything we needed and more. The breakfast had a good variety and everything was good except for the eggs which tasted funny. We did not use the pool or hot tub because we had our own, but it looked clean and inviting. Overall, the facility was good, clean and had great service.

I would rate this Hotel as average. It was clean and the room comfortable, with the exception of the bathroom which was very small. Good proximity to the Calgary Airport. Staff was friendly and helpful. O.K. for overnight, but not what I would consider a family hotel given the location. Average value for the price.

I have used this location on 3 other occasions and each time I have been very happy with my stay. Hotel isn't the newest location, but is kept clean and the beds are fabulous! Very friendly staff always willing to help and the breakfast offerings are great! the in door pool is a little shallow for my liking, but would be great if you have kids traveling with you. In all, I was pretty happy with my stay and I will be back on my next business trip.
