This hotel might be called "airport inn" but it is definitely not near the airport but it is not alone there are a number of "chain" hotels in the immediate vicinity all with airport in their name! The really positive aspect is that there is no noise from planes taking off or coming into land and the hotel does provide free transfers to and from the airport.
My husband and I recently stayed for 2 nights whilst travelling back from a 4 week stay in Kelowna. Whilst being somewhat disheartened to learn that our pick up from the airport would take 25 minutes (it being Friday evening rush hour) once we were on our way it soon became clear as to why the transfer took so long and it was worth the distance. A warm and efficient welcome awaited us, along with a nice cool room. Being so far from the airport means that its closer to Calgary centre and there are bus stops right outside, although we didn't use them. There is a Denny's restaurant over the road offering good basic food to satisfy all tastes and appetites and a discount to boot, from the hotel reception.
Breakfast is excellent, choice of cereals, yoghurts, fruit, bacon, scrambled eggs, toast, muffing bagels or pancakes and sausages depending which day it was and always a waffle maker. Tea and coffee is available all day long and is good.
We found the hotel staff, in particular the manager very friendly and helpful. As we had a late evening flight we had requested a very late check out and although the hotel was full (being stampede weekend) this was accommodated with grace - thank you. We shall definitely look to book again next time we are passing through Calgary. Good value for money.
