“I love this place”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2014

The staff is super friendly and helpful. The rooms are always clean. There are plenty of places to eat in the area. The hotel is located 5 minutes from the Chinook Mall by bus. The bus runs outside of the hotel, very convenient. Great bang for your buck!

Great service, reasonable restaurant on location, good parking and access to main road, clean and comfortable rooms. Room access is not always easy from elevator. Ask at desk how far you need to go. Good return for the money.

Room Tip: The hotel has no easy access via elevator to some of the room, which means carrying suitcases up/dow...

I'd say this location is a bit below the standards I've come to expect from holiday inn's. You can tell that it's an older hotel because of the terrible layouts in the rooms. The bathroom set up was small and inefficient. There is no where to put towels and the ironing board is hanging in the shower area. We booked 2 queen bed room and ended up with double beds which made for a tight sleep. The reservation was for 4 people yet there were only 3 towels given each day. Otherwise it was clean and all you need for a room. The lobby has had some reno's so that was nice and service was great. Although I prefer a breakfast included, it's nice to at least have a restaurant attached to hotel.

Thank you very much for taking the time to share your review. We apologize if you found the layout not to your expectations. Although we are not able to reconfigure the rooms we make every attempt to ensure the quality and cleanliness is 100% to all of our guests satisfaction.
Our bathrooms are small and designed so the washroom area is separate from the sink therefore this does limit the space. I apologize the room type provided was not as requested and will certainly follow up with Central Reservations.

Your business is appreciated and we are hopeful that you will consider us again in the future.

Stayed here for business. First time. Generally, I enjoyed my stay. It was winter when I stayed and I am used to quite a lot more thorough snow removal and de-icing, but I have come to learn that what I encountered was "normal" for Calgary so they won't lose marks for this. Sometimes one can have somewhat unrealistic expectations or can be unfamiliar with local practices, as I was in this case.

One pleasant surprise was their restaurant. The food was very good and quite reasonably priced.

I did enjoy my stay though and will be staying there again for my next trip due to the convenience.

I thoroughly enjoyed the quiet and comfortable room. I was pleased to find pillows like I see at Holiday Inn Express locations (my preference) - not the half-length, overstuffed pillows that I usually see at Holiday Inns.

I slept very well - the bed was comfortable, the heater/air conditioner was quiet. Shower worked very well. The sink area is a bit cramped, but is sufficient.

The hotel staff were very friendly and capable. What I found most surprising was the hotel restaurant. Usually the hotel restaurants are lame, taking advantage of the captive guests. My dinner was exceptional - probably the best hotel restaurant meal I have ever had. The dinner salad was larger than most - and absolutely delicious.

I heartily recommend this hotel. BTW, this hotel has a somewhat odd layout, don't let that dissuade you.

The only improvements that I noticed were need was that the lighting in the room is not sufficiently bright, and strangely, there were no outlets at the desk.

Thank you for your great review. We were pleased to read that you enjoyed your stay.

We have just replaced all the pillows in the guest rooms with Queen and King pillows, each bed provides the option of 2 firm and or 2 soft pillows and they are great.

We appreciate your comment about the lighting, we are in the process of upgrading all lighting in our guest rooms, this is great news, the lights will be installed with brighter energy efficient bulbs and will also have electrical outlets on them as we are presently limited now as you have mentioned, we are hoping this will be completed later this summer.

Thank you for your business.

I stayed 4 nights at the the excellent Holiday Inn Express on MacLeod Trail. My room was large and comfortable, clean and quiet! The staff were always pleasant and helpful and the breakfast offerings were plentiful and well presented. An excellent stay!

Stayed here with my family last weekend. The room is huge and very clean. The breakfast was the usual cereal, fruit, yogurt, etc. The parking lot was full but management allowed us to park in 'no parking' spot. Will stay here again.
