We stay in this hotel for a week on late July 2016. Although the hotel has gone through a whole renovation in their rooms, they seem to have been done with cheap labor and materials, which really affects the experience. There is food nearby, as well as shopping. It is close to the Chinook Centre, so that is a plus.... More

Manager is extremely rude. His name is Ali. He's got a big mouth. When he's not busy kissing the owner he's being rude to customers. Doesn't help that almost every room has bed bugs. Dirty dishes in the drawers. Stained beds and sheets. Constant banging with the construction. But no they don't tell you there's construction until your woken up... More

We stayed here, wife and 2 small children, on way to Banff. First night, loud neighbors. Called desk, shut the noise down. Next night, new visitors, loud starting at 1:30 AM. Called front desk and they shut it down. Talk to Melyssa at the front desk and said I was cancelling my stay on my way back from Banff. Listed... More

Comfortable and clean accommodation. Hiwever it lacked good eateries within walking distance. We ate at the Cheesecake Factory across the road and were disappointed worth the lack of service. We had a good breakfast included in our accommodation cost.

I've stayed here several times in recent years. It is a handy location for the things I want and the price is even better these days, most likely due to the local economy softening. The staff and service are fine. The free breakfast is adequate but it seems the variety has been reduced. No problems with the room, everything worked... More

Arrived after a long haul flight and was asked at reception if we wanted a room at one end to the complex or the other, I requested the quietest room. We were allocated a room, with air-conditioning outside the door that was nothing equivalent to an industrial chiller noise. The quietest room I think not. We requested to move, and... More

We arrived in town during Stampede Week and could not believe our luck. Our suite was spacious, comfortable, clean, and made our 3 day stay so pleasant. The pool is clean and attractive, the complimentary breakfast offers several options very suitable for travellers. The hotel location is great for getting around, and handy to shopping.

We had two rooms. One for myself and my wife and one for my mother in law. Our bed had a deep canyon on half of it, very soft and probably should have been replaced a couple of years ago. I discovered a couple of small ants crawling on me through the night and awoke with a couple bites on... More

The hotel had a great location for where we wanted to be in Calgary and it was the cheapest option we could find but it was a completely fine room and the staff were polite. Just be aware there are no elevators so be prepared to carry your luggage up several flights of stairs.

Loved the room in the corner and on the ground floor. Only bad thing about the room was the cleanliness . Around the basin it was sticky and then there was a long black hair. The service at the front desk was atrocious, the staff didn't know what to do upon checkout
