The motel was fine for what you pay. I got a room for $125/night during the Calgary Stampede over the weekend just passed, but I booked well in advance. The free parking was great and it was only a 10 minute walk to the train so we didn't need to drive anywhere. The train would take us to the Stampede grounds or downtown. 17 St restaurants and bars were 5 - 10 minutes walk in the other direction. There were plenty of great places to choose from!
The hotel was very 80's but at least the bathrooms had been renovated. Our room had 2 queens and a kitchenette. It was adequately sized and we were comfortable. There was a bit of noise from the corridor but no more than most hotels of it's age! I thought the breakfast was great - cereals, hard boiled eggs, fruit, bagels, muffins, danish pastries, croissants, a juice bar, etc. My husband enjoyed the coffee. Yeah, they serve it on plastic plates/cutlery but at least it tasted good! They should expand the breakfast room though - it got very cramped during the last 30 minutes on offer!
The biggest downer were the elevators - sooooo slooooow!
