The location of the hotel in downtown Calgary is good. At the same time, the room was clean, but the hotel facilities were very old and worn down. Not what I expect from a 3 star hotel, rather a 2.5 star hotel.

Was very price competitive, but the hotel is beginning to show it's age. Room was fine but just old. Parking was ok, but I got a ticket when I was checking in prior to parking underground. Also they charge an extra $15/day for parking, thought this is highly competetive rate for downtown cowtown.

Hotel is in a great location in downtown Calgary. Many restaurants and bars within easy walking distance. Major shopping centre is also only a few blocks away. This is an older building that has been renovated a while back, so it is a bit dated. Our room was clean and the bed was quite comfortable. The staff was friendly and...

This hotel is the worst hotel I have ever been to. The manager was rude and unprofessional. We got a dirty room! Toenails on the floor, dirt and hair in the bed and cigarette butts on the floor, an unknown substance was in the walls. When wanted a new room the manager threatened to kick us out. And we also...

We stayed here for two nights are the beginning of July. The hotel was all decked out in western gear for the Stampede, which made it kind of fun. The staff as all nice, and we were actually upgraded to a suite which was a bonus. The hotel is right downtown and easy walking distance to restaurants and the parks...

Thank you so much for your review, super_draven. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay during the Calgary Stampede last year. It is unfortunate that our pool was closed for an unexpected maintenance issue. Hopefully, you can come and visit us again this year for Stampede!

Decent enough hotel for downtown area. Breakfast is the worst breakfast I have experienced. Cold buffet ( by buffet sausage and scrambled egg /boiled egg) and pancakes. Everything was cold. Complained to manager as I just wanted some fresh poached eggs and toast but he wouldn't do it , unless he charged 15 dollars. Disgusting service. Stay here by all...

A good hotel for the price. Was in town for the hockey game and booked this hotel as it is close to the arena and the price is reasonable. Was pleasantly surprised as rooms and washroom was clean and stocked up with everything needed. The staff were friendly and helpful when we had a few questions about the area as...

The Ramada hotel in downtown Calgary is an excellent place to settle in for any type of business travel. Easy access to the underground parking garage to quick check in from the helpful front desk. The newly renovated room gives a welcoming feeling with a good layout. Would stay here again on future trips to Calgary.

The Ramada hotel in downtown Calgary has an amazing location giving easy access to downtown restaurants and the transit system. The price for the hotel was also decent. Given the price, I think the rooms were what could be expected. It was a little noisy in our room and the whole place felt a little boring.
