When I first come to the entrance I was like Damn. But the staff were nice and tried to accommodate my requests. When I got into the room. I was decently satisfied. For $75 a night. This is really decent. The room is not too big nor small. I like it. This is a budget friendly motel. If u travel... More

The staff try hard, but the fact is, it's a noisy, dirty bar. Try to get a room at the location across the street, as it's at least quiet, but I stayed there 4 days, and the room wasn't cleaned even once while I was out. Plus a lengthy check-out process, as the desk clerk had to run to my... More

The Shamrock Hotel has operated in Calgary for decades. I have not visited the place for many years but I heard of an awesome blues jam on Saturday afternoon. This is a boutique hotel with a few rooms. The area is older with both large houses and small "railroad" houses and with industrial businesses. It is an "out-of-the-way" place. Entering... More

Oh my God! if you are planning to stay in this hotel, please change your plan right away! This is most disgusting hotel I ever saw. We had to forgo one night's money as we checked in and found out what we found out. The area is smoky, carpets are dirty and old, washroom disgusting. The people you see are... More

We saw mixed reviews for this hotel and were a little reluctant to book. However with most of the downtown area booked up, we took a chance. Luckily we were in the building across the street fro the bar. Our room was clean, quiet and comfortable. Although the décor is dated, it was roomy and fit our needs. Dave, the... More

So, so, so bad. I have stayed in some dive hotels as I like a good deal but this was by far the worst. The lady who checked us in was rude, and charged us more for the night than we had booked at. We stayed in the building across from the main building/bar/office, although others have said their accommodation... More

We selected the Shamrock since it wasn't far from the Calgary Stampede and thought we could walk to the event. No way. As we drove up, we could see that the area was a dilapidated industrial area with lots of boarded up businesses. There was a woman with tattoos, smoking heavily and pacing back and from in front of the... More

There are good point to this hotel. The beds are good and the doors lock. The location was good in the respect it was only a short walk to the stampede and near to bus stops. The free wifi worked well, even if you had to keep signing in. Having a washing machine and dryer on our floor was a... More

Stayed in the shamrock hotel on July 3rd for Canada day weekend and it was hands done one of the worst experiences of mine and my friends life.
