“Basic, comfortable, courteous”
Reviewed July 13, 2012

We stayed here for 1 night after landing in Calgary. If you're after a place where you can have a nice comfortable bed (or three) and a bathroom that works then this is the place for you. It's not luxurious but the price signifies that & it was very good with pets too which was a key reason we booked it. Only had 12 hours here before moving onwards but did everything it needed to.

My husband and I stayed here with our 6 kids and it was great. Staff were awesome and more than willing to correct wrongs for us. We were booked into a smoking room when we asked for non smoking and because there were no 3 queen suiytes left they put us in 2 adjoining rooms for 1 night then moved us to a suite in the morning and did not charge us for extra room. They even offered to move all of our stuff for us while we were out an about. The breakfast was a basic simple cold continental, but it suited our kids just right. Housekeeping was great and our rooms were clean. It was very quiet considering you are right by a major highway. Foe being as run down looking on the outside it was efinetly worth the stay and the pricing was very very affordable. The only thing I would say that was wrong was the shower took a while to find a happy medium in temp and kept getting hot and then cold. We are planning another trip to Calgary and will definetly be staying at this hotel again.

I spent three nights at the CBVI Calgary, with my wife and infant son. As others have mentioned, the property is quite dated, but our room was clean, and everything worked. The continental breakfast was nothing special, but we had no issues with it, and it was pretty much what we expected. The housekeeping staff were attentive and thorough. When discovering that one cannot use 411 (directory assistance) from the in-room phone, the front desk clerk looked up the listing for us, and phoned back to our room with the info. That was a nice touch.

A few notes about the property:

-Despite being located right on 16th Ave, we heard almost no traffic noise, though we were in the part of the property farthest from the road. We did get some noise from the parking lot of the adjacent Best Western, but this is not within CBVI's control.

-CBVI is located in "motel village", a cluster of hotels, motels, and restaurants. There is a Denny's, Boston Pizza, and Red Lobster all within a short walk. This is convenient.

-Outside of motel village itself, CBVI is located in a very busy urban area that is not pedestrian-friendly. While there are amenities such as a shopping mall fairly close by, those using devices such as scooters, walkers, or strollers may want to think twice before heading out. Again, this isn't a knock on CBVI, but it is worth noting.

Overall we were satisfied, and pleased with what we got for the price. There are many fancier, more-modern accommodations available, but not at this price.

Thank you for taking time to write such a detailed review. We strive to make your stay with us as convenient and pleasant as possible. We agree that the entire area of Motel Village is very difficult for pedestrians and traffic in general. We are hoping that although development of the area has been approved by our City Council - that the streetscape (sidewalks etc) will occur long before the area sees completed revitalization scheduled over the next number of years. Thank you again for your comments and we hope to see you again soon!

My husband and I stayed at Canada's Best Value Inn in Calgary from 6/1-6/7 and had a most wonderful stay! The Hotel was very nice, good location-close to buses and light-rail, the staff were very kind, professional, and cheerful, always greeting us with a smile when they saw us and asked if we needed anything. They made every effort to ensure our visit was the best. The rooms were very clean, and in the morning they provided a healthy and abundant continental breakfast. The staff were so nice and treated you like family...it was truly a home away from home for us. To us, these are the things that were most important-cleanliness, comfort and wonderful, kind staff.

The room was very clean and pleasant (with a microwave and other kitchen furnishings); service was very friendly and helpful, and there was a continental breakfast in the mornings. The motel is VERY conveniently located: it is on the Trans-Canada Highway (perfect if you're visiting Dinosaur Provincial Park, Lake Louise, the Royal Tyrell Museum, etc.); there is a very good pizzeria next door; the train station to downtown (museums, shopping, etc.) is only a few minutes away; and stores selling food and drink are about a ten minute walk away. We really enjoyed our stay.

I checked into the hotel on Feb 23. I was in Calgary visiting, I had previously booked 3 nights with the hotel but due to changes in my reservations I only stayed the one night. When attempting to change the reservation I had trouble with the online and central reservations and put a complaint into help desk. The hotel itself called me back personally to apologise and when I checked it they had left a gift for me. Although the rooms are a bit dated the rooms are clean and cozy. I was surprised to see they had laundry onsite which worked out great for me. The check in staff was wonderful, fast quick and polite. I will be staying here again my next trip out to Calgary.

Good front desk staff, good free breaky in the morning, good spot for 1 night.
Top floor is better than ground floor. Bathrooms need renovating, otherwise rooms are fine.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at back of property to avoid street noise from 16th Ave.
