I said at another small hotel that seemed like it was an older apartment that was converter into a hotel. It was bad. This Best Western is awesome! It is an older hotel, but it is bright, clean and the staff are very professional. The room I stayed in had large a large window, letting in nice daylight. Don't worry,...

hotel could use some updates, but the room size was good, clean and very nice hotel staff. Elevator was never too busy, hotel is walking distance to Calgary downtown which is nice. Parking available for hotel guests at no extra cost.

They acknowledged my request and gave me a room on the 14th floor with a beautiful view of Calgary. Shout out to the blonde lady working the Front Desk, she was very friendly and accommodating. I...

This hotel is decently priced, clean, and has some larger rooms/suites that are very comfortable and roomy. If you don't have little kids and don't need a pool this is perfect. Fairly quite for that reason too!

This was a centrally situated hotel and the rooms were good. Bed was comfortable, staff was pleasant & professional. I would stay here again, but there are a couple of things to consider if it is a necessity for you. There is no restaurant or coffee cafe on site. I personally did not try the free continental breakfast but my...

I have stayed here over a dozen times in the last 2 years, after trying similar hotels in the area. The location, extremely friendly staff, great value for dollar (including breakfast), and a real aim to please on the part of employees are memorable plusses.

Larger rooms with small kitchen facility - a great deal for the price as well as great location just off 17th ave. where there are numerous restaurants and coffee places. ALSO: free parking which makes the room price even a better deal.

Ours was just a short trip; we arrived a little past midnight for the first of only two nights and were exhausted from the long 16-hour drive. Miguel at the front desk was accommodating and helpful, which is what we all hope for after a grueling road trip, right? We were given a suite facing west--not a good view--but with...
