Well, the title says it all. As far as value goes, it's not a bad standard at all and to be honest, you would pay a lot more for other hotels with the same standard but a different location.....however.....we had 1 BIG issue. WATER.
We live near Edmonton (Alberta) and were driving to Montana and thought we would stay overnight (2 nights) in Calgary on the way to and from Montana and we picked the Glenmore Inn due to our basic needs for a decent standard hotel with a small pool for our 2 year old daughter.
Car parking is free (there's no way they could charge for it) and is in a fairly questionable area but hey! Decor fine, check-in was fine (They mentioned water would be down for planned maintenance at 11pm to 6am) , hotel bar was ok and hotel restaurant was acceptable. Again for travellers needs.
Next morning I washed my teeth and while pooling water in my hands to shave I was horrified to see the water I had just used to wash my teeth was bright white (like milk!!). Dirty (Contaminated, sediment, whatever!) water like this I have never experienced in many countries around the world. The hotel manager apologized and gave us a 40 dollar discount from THE HOTEL RESTAURANT but the dirty water continued until we left despite numerous complaints. Basically, "we are very sorry for the inconvenience so we'll give you some money off food we make 300% on and still expect you, your pregnant wife and 2 year old daughter bathe in dirty milky coloured water". It's like this, if water quality is not up to scratch, close the doors of the hotel.
So, its a great deal of a hotel, just make sure you ask is the water still white when your booking!!!!!! (I attached a photo so you can see the condition of water I washed my teeth, face and showered in for two days!)
