This is a nice hotel in a good location close to the trendy 17th Ave district. A big plus is the ample free parking. Reasonable rates for standard room which are clean with good amenities. Can't comment on the quality of the breakfast because the room was too crowded (long line-up on Sunday morning at 9 am) and was so... More

This was a one-night stopover from Calgary airport to the Parks. We chose this thinking we would be able to experience a hopping major Alberta city within walking distance of the hotel but the area was dead. Presumably more of a business hotel but there were lots of kids and the breakfast experience was very unpleasant - kids spilling drinks... More

On vacation coming through Calgary and wanted to experience the downtown area on Saturday night. This motel is very convenient to restaurants and shops. Very nice staff that helped us choose a restaurant. Rooms were very clean and modern. Breakfast was very good also.

Great downtown location. Room was very comfortable and clean. The hallway was a little dated looking but once we stepped in the room it was very nice and modern and clean. Breakfast was very good, everything was well stocked and the eating area was clean and tidy. We would stay here again for sure. Also there was free parking.

Not very long to reach downtown by walk. Free breakfast and parking. A little noisy late on the night on our floor. Room comfortable with plenty of space. Little kitchennette was useful and practible.

This hotel is located in the heart of the city. Within walking distance to many restaurants and local grocery stores. The added value of a breakfast on the main floor daily is a nice treat and very convenient.

We were disappointed to find that we were not in the middle of downtown Calgary...but that lasted 10 minutes when we learned that the central business district is primarily big buildings. We were 3 blocks from the hip 17th Avenue restaurant street, 3 blocks from a Safeway, and 6 from the free cross-town trolley. It would have been a 20+... More

This hotel seemed on the older side, and the staff were efficient if not overly friendly. They certainly were not unfriendly, and they were helpful if I asked a question, they just were not super friendly. The room was clean and all was in working order, though to me, the bed was pretty uncomfortable. Very firm and you could feel... More

We enjoyed our stay in Calgary, experiencing downtown was exceptional as we were in walking distance of Eau Claire and the downtown core. The hotel staff was excellent and the breakfast was so tasty. The beds were AMAZING. We will be back!
