This is an economic motel to stay overnight. Its location is just fine, it took us a while to find it. The room is not so large, the bed is comfortable. It is not far away from a big shopping mall " Chinook Mall" , but we did not go for a look. The room rate is not expensive compared... More

Older establishment, advertised having new beds, I guess our room would be next? Knowing this is a low budget Hotel our expectations were already low, but they could do more effort for a complementary breakfast, coffee tasted like instant, juice (or appeared to be juice) was very off, believed it to be orange juice. Decided to go out for a... More

We were on a road trip we needed to stay the night in Calgary. Upon driving into the facility, the hotel looked very dingy and outdated, but my family and I were not too concerned (until later). When checking in, the receptionist was on her cellphone and eating cereal behind the desk. We waited until she was done having a... More

Accommodating front desk to all your needs. Very clean and quite place to stay. Very close to downtown Calgary and accessible place to everything. Free breakfast is not bad and also free for our daughter. The price is very affordable.

The room was basic but it was clean and tidy. TV, coffee maker, fridge, free wifi and new beds. The breakfast was good too with the basics and a waffle maker. YUM! It was a good stay for only $60 a night

The motel is as advertised. The bed passed my girlfriend's request for a full bug check. (Based on old pictures in a review) The newish mattress and box spring were comfortable. We stayed two nights. Noise wasn't an issue. The breakfast consisted of cereal, coffee, and DIY waffles. Wifi was adequate for watching Netflix in bed. You get bumped off... More

The hotel manager cancelled the reservation as he could not charge the credit card (I have no idea why!) and as we were in a very long trip from Brazil to Calgary (2 adults and 2 children) I could not call or answer my phone. I informed in the reservation we would get there around 10PM but they didn't wait... More
