We got in about an hour after check in time and the front desk lady told us that our room wasn't clean yet and we will have to wait another 30 minutes... The AC was broken and the window was jammed, the room smelled musty All in all, you get what you pay for

After reading some of the reviews I was a bit skeptical. However, when I arrived I was pleasantly surprised. I believe the room I stayed in was recently renovated with new beds and a flat screen tv. I only stayed here one night but I was able to sleep well and the room met my needs. The breakfast was a... More

I had to stay here because everything else was sold out due to a conference in Calgary. My positive comment Is that the price is fair: you get what you pay for. Some hotels rank up their prices when everything is sold out but this one kept them fair. The rooms are a little bit aged and look like the... More

We were looking for a cheap transit motel in Calgary; this fitted the bill perfectly. Large sign as you drive along the street - note it's on the west side so if you're coming from the south you'll need to drive past the motel and turn round somewhere safe. For our modest fee we had two bedrooms and a bathroom,... More

It's after midnight and we arrive at our room with our 2 small children (1&2). My husband previously stopped in to grab the keys for the room as I was hosting an event and wouldn't be done until around the time of our arrival. When we arrived my husband came to realize that he had misplaced the keys, I assured... More

Stayed here as a get away from home for a night from the kids. I am very happy that we went to this hotel. Its reasonably priced and easy access for market and food places. The rooms were renovated and kept very nice.

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.
