Location is far from the fun zone downtown, so until Calgary fixes their drug/crime issues in this area it is a sketchy walk to downtown…taxi back!. Room as ok. Staff were great.

Kemol is the reason I continue to stay here, he is excellent and I hope management realizes how valuable he is. Rooms are always very clean and I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. Nice balance between price and quality.

Not sure why all these people wouldn't recommend this hotel. Things happens especially when it's not your home. We've all been checked into a hotel room before where we were very disappointed. Stop leaving reviews that makes the property look bad just because you didn't have a nice stay. However, I had an amazing stay. This hotel is the best in Alberta. Thanks to THE staff especially Kemol who went above and beyond in ensuring that my family and I had a great time. Read less

During our stay we saw there was a dirty used bathing suit in the bathroom. Upon letting the staff know, they re-“cleaned” the room, and left the dirty bathing suit behind again. Not planning on return
