I want to attend the Stampede July 11, 12 and 13. I cannot find a vacancy downtown. Any advice on where to stay to avoid bad traffic?

Perhaps staying at a hotel adjacent to the CTrain and ride the train into Stampede Park?

Any thoughs are appreciated.

Good memory Judy.

mdeljb ~> People have a tendancy to believe that Calgary's downtown would be the place where the majority of hotels would be located. This is not true. The majority of downtown hotels would be on the high end scale.

For those who choose to find ways to get to the Stampede grounds there are other ways. If you are fortunate to get into Motel Village you will be right there at the C Train. Sandman Hotel Downtown has a station across the corner. However, there are other hotels along MacLeod Trail leading up to the Stampede grounds by which you could easily link up to a station by bus or ride a bus right up to the grounds if need be.

Transportation links are not that difficult. Therefore choose a hotel of your liking and go from there.
