Best Western Airport Inn

Reviewed July 30, 2011

As the title states, this is not a fancy hotel, and it is showing its age. However, the staff are friendly, the breakfast is good (although the dining area is small and crowded), and parking is free. Because of its location, nearer the airport than the downtown, the hotel can keep its prices lower than the downtown hotels. The "business center" consists of one tired computer beside the front door, that opens wide to let in freezing air in the winter....

Got this room through air miles.. What a waste. The hotel is old, the wall paper is pealing off of the walls, the carpet is lifting and there are no baseboards... all of that just in the hallway. The sink was chipped and the pillow case was dirty. To top it off we were only there for a 5 hour sleep (as we were on a lay-over) and when we went to leave they told us we had to pay for a long distance call we never made. We were argued with for about 10 minutes, until I said.. the only phone call I made was to call down and ask why our wake up call never came.. The girl at the front desk then said that another guest had said the same thing. Only now did the manager accept that there was something wrong with his phone and that obviously we were telling the truth. Unbelievable...
Never again.

The hotel in general is very good but the cost of leaving your car at the hotel are outrageous. Not very well publicised on the internet web page. I have stayed at hotels in Calgary who do not charge a cent for leaving your car at the hotel when flying away. For 7 days i was charged $50! cheaper to park at the airport in parking and you dont pay for the shuttle on return to Calgary which i have never been charged for when staying at other hotels!

The hotel was easy to find: just off 16th Ave. N. after exiting east from Deerfoot Trail. We had the hotel's stay and fly package, meaning we stayed one night, parked our vehicle in their lot and were provided a shuttle to and from the airport. Only cost of the shuttle was $5 airport fee. The staff was very friendly and helpful at all stages of our stay. The hotel is slightly aged, but the public areas were very clean and bright; we didn't use the small pool and hottub but they seemed adequate, though not terribly pretty; our room wasn't glamourous but was clean and fine for an overnight stay following a long flight. The weather was chilly so we were pleased to be able to have both supper and breakfast indoors: the Thai restaurant was a pleasant surprise with some excellent menu items and the hot, complementary, continental breakfast had a good selection and appreciated. The cost was reasonable--about $160. (Ca)

The service was great. The room well maintained and prepared for our arrival. Parking just in fromt of the lobby which was very convenient.

Please ensure that you do dine at the restaurant or have them deliver to your room. I steeped out to pick my husband up at the airport and got back to find our supper well laid out, kept warm and our wine taken care of. It was excellent. The food I must say is one of the best cooking that I have ever tasted. All fresh ingredients.

Make sure you stay for breakfast. Its included in the price of the room.; We were blown away by the spread.

Best Hotel stay in a very long time or maybe ever. Better than the Hyatt!

The Best Western Calgary Airport is a standard airport hotel except for one thing. Out of a tiny kitchen a Thai family produces absolutely fantastic home-style Thai food during the evening. Mind-blowing to find that kind of restaurant in an airport hotel. Saying that it is a "standard" airport hotel is not meant to be critical. The rooms are good; it's quiet; there's a good breakfast in the morning; and the desk staff are incredibily helpful. But that restaurant.....
