Neutral hotel

I liked the fact that the hotel had a swimming pool. Although the water was very cold when the outside temperature was 30 centigrade, still it was nice to swim in frigid water in the sunny and hot day.
The continental breakfast should definitely be improved. It is served in a small lobby of the hotel and there aren't any... more

This motel has virtually no security and is home to some seedy characters. The management is unfriendly and unapologetic of the unhygienic and run down conditions of the rooms. My neighbor is a young female and the front desk checked an older man into the same room and gave him a key. I had a homeless man wander into my... more

I realize that this was a budget friendly hotel, but i still paid over $100 and the room had dirty carpets and dirty walls. It was had to sleep at night cause the room was so bright from the lights outside the main door and noise from the traffic outside.

Convenient location in the Northwest. Older property, but clean and well maintened. The bed is quite comfortable. Staff is very friendly and it is a good overall value. It would be nice if they would get with the times a little and upgrade their TV's, but that is the only real shortfall.

Not a four star hotel, but reasonably priced and clean
February 24, 2014

I stay here quite often, not because of its ambiance, but because of its location and price. It is reasonable priced and reasonably clean; however, it is old and really could stand a face lift especially in the smoking rooms, but they do allow smoking, one of the few hotels/motels around that still do.

Home Away From Home
February 09, 2013

We had a bad experience with another Hotel and had to find a new place fast. We were taking a course in Calgary for a month and did not want to move again. It was nice and comfortable, no hassles and the front desk was very helpful. Rooms were cleaned daily and we felt secure.

The hotel was nice. The location of the hotel was good. It was surronded by shops and restaurants. The reception was very small. Only 4 people can be inside at a time.

Rooms were clean and comfortable, bathroom was very small, decor a little tired. The breakfast was slightly above average for motels. The motel is located on a fairly... more

Not bad for $83
January 30, 2012

This is a pretty good value for the money we spent. We wanted a bed to lay our heads and no extra things like a pool were needed. The bed was comfortable. We had to leave at 6:30 so we were a bit disappointed that the breakfast wasn't on until 7:00. We would likely stay here again.

Good place to stay with plenty of value.
November 19, 2010

The rooms are motel type not hotel (outside door). We arrived in the cold and snow so the rooms are a bit chilly and we had to have an extra room heater. Having breakfast was a definite plus. Other than that the staff are wonderful, the motel is close to restaurants, close to shopping and the stadium as well as transit and bus.
