We stayed at this hotel one night. We needed a place nearby to a two day series of medical appointments. The room was clean, the furnishings and fittings quite up to date for a budget motel. Parking was good, the breakfast was okay. No protein, except for boiled eggs, but otherwise pretty normal. We had a check-in glitch because the... More

We stayed here for the convenience of being close to the eye doctor, and it was our 3rd visit. The staff are always exceptional with our requests, and have been very friendly. The room was spacious (ground floor), and the pool was never over-full. Beds were extremely comfortable. We will be back again!

THE GOOD Great Location close to major routes, fast to Spruce Meadows, Glenmore SW, and lots of good restaurants nearby. A fantastic pool/hot-tub area, super clean but a bit too large for us and somewhat overwhelming with a viewing area from the lobby…. Front office reception staff were excellent during our entire stay including check-in and check-out. Room well provided... More

We selected ELS bc of its close proximity to the airport(20mins), competitive rates. We were not disappointed. The friendly front desk staff accommodated our early arrival & our request to a ground floor room. Rm 123 with 2 Q,fridge,micro,tv was spotless. The bed extremely comfortable with high end linens. The continental breakfast included waffles, egg,bagels, cereal etc & a staff... More

The lobby has that damp smell from the pool when you walk in, but once you get away from the lobby the smell is gone. No elevator to the 2nd floor and no one to help me as I struggled to get my bag up the stairs. Room was decently clean, nice crisp sheets and a continental breakfast in the... More

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

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
