I booked the room from 10/29 - 11/16.
The room smelled of Urine and generally unclean.
We checked out on 10/30 due to unsatisfactory accomodation. We understand you get what you pay for but you expect cleanliness.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

Stopped for a 3 night stay, but left after one. Arrived on a hot Calgary day. Room was stifling hot. To engage the air-conditioner over the entrance had to stand on an unsteady chair and then throw a switch near the door frame. The racket from this AC(?) was overwhelming and unacceptable, causing us to it down. We opened the door full during the late afternoon/early evening to help some cooling. At night the best we could do was open the one small window and live with the traffic noise nearby.The bathroom was clean, but the floors created & carpets very soiled. The 'continental free" breakfast consisted of muffins or tarts-no toast. We ate early in the morning as the motel guide stated that breakfast was available 7-9AM......and WHILE SUPPLIES LASTED !
The rate is low for Calgary but really not worth it. Moved to another establishment and 'gladly' paid the extra $35 per night.

Room Tip: Do not drive here and stay here......
