We booked 2 rooms at this hotel for a brief visit to Calgary. Let's talk of the pros first - it is ideally located near LRT - eating options available nearby - good wifi and parking onsite available - spacious rooms with comfortable beds and warm shower Cons - breakfast is so-so. They could add hashbrowns, beans, omlete etc - carpets badly need to be washed - rooms show signs of age. See pics - there was hair in the bathroom that didnt belong to me Staff was very pleasant. They even called to check if everything was ok.

This is an average hotel, nothing special. Beds are comfortable, rooms are clean and the breakfast is basic. The location is ideal when commuting to Foothills Medical Centre, UofC, or planning on taking the c-train. The price of the hotel is good for what you get.

I did not even get to stay at the hotel. The receptionist was extremely rude and yelled at me! Not sure what I said to set her off but her angry escalated quickly. I kept calm and tried to defuse the situation but it didn’t help. Finally I left and stayed elsewhere. Too bad it seemed like a nice place.

Thank you for your comments and please allow the hotel to clarify. The reason the hotel refused your reservation is because you were insisting on using a credit card that was not issued to you, nor was the cardholder with you at the time. We take credit card fraud very seriously and will not participate in illegal activities. Thank you.

I have never been treated so badly anywhere else. I experienced a mix up but their way of sorting it out was badly handled. I am 74 years old (using a wheelchair) travelling with my 51 year daughter who had mental health problems and when under stress has a bad time dealing with it. I told them this up front and if there was anything wrong to call me on my cell, something happened and instead of phoning me they let it go. I paid for another 7 days in the morning, then they kept phoning me (my daughter answered) and they said I had to go pay for the room. Three times I went to the front desk to sort it out -so I told them to refund my money and I would go elsewhere, they botched up the refund saying they would sort it out the next morning. They let it go all day-then finally came to my unit and told me they were ejecting us because of the so-called incident with my daughter in the morning (which was caused by them harassing me for money I had already paid), I told them I wasn't leaving until I got my refund, they threatened me with police action, I told them to go ahead as I was not going to leave until I got my $824 plus back either in cash or money back in my bank account, OH by the way they had the cheek to charge me for the night $90 plus. For a Hotel that has several times had their pool closed by Alberta Health for not being up to scratch they are pretty cocky. Sorry run out of characters so not all of this covers the debacle. .

Thank you for your comments and please allow the hotel to clarify. We were very patient with your situation; however when your daughter started approaching guests in the parking lot and telling them she was going to kidnap their kids using the pool we had to ask you to leave the premises. We pride ourselves on our compassion when dealing with medical stay guests and we're sorry this incident has left such a negative impact; however the safety and security of our guests and staff are of the highest importance and we feel we made the right decision.

Close to U of Calgary, Foothills Medical and Children’s Hospital. Very close to C train station. For travellers on a budget this is an excellent choice. Clean and comfortable room with small fridge and microwave. The hotel has a pool and whirlpool but these weren’t accessible to us and the front desk staff, tho friendly weren’t able to fix the problem. Breakfast is included and offered cold and hot options but was on the more basic end of the range compared to other places I have stayed. But for somewhere well located with clean and comfy rooms and breakfast included its value is unbeatable. It doesn’t feel like a budget motel.
