      • Older travelers

        I liked the price, the design of the hotel with pool is pleasant, complimentry breakfast by pool was pleasant, for our needs the main floor room with door leading to the parking lot was ideal for unpacking after 2 weeks of camping and getting organized for plane trip home. I felt it was the best hotel room deal I had had in a while.

        very convenient location, close to the train station that gets you anywhere you need to go in Calgary. The rooms were clean and quiet which was nice. Breakfast was good as well especially the waffles you could make yourself.

        Staff at the reception weren't very friendly. Never smiling which was really too bad. Every time you would ask directions or a question, it was such an effort for them. Too bad....

        Great location, close to train made it easy to get into town.

        Poor customer service, staff were not friendly or very helpful and the price did not match the service, was quite disipointed with my stay.

        Proximity to the station

        Our twin room was dark & depressing. No room for bags. Beds uncomfortable & obviously very old.

      • Older travelers

        I liked the staff who were helpful, friendly and smiling when we talked to them. The breakfasts were great. The atmosphere was good. I liked the eating/visiting area around the pool.

        Some areas were not well maintained, such as the stains on the carpet in our room and in the hall. The pool water was cold. The hot tub jets were not working.

        Proximity to sports facilities, restaurants, and transportation.

        We had an inner room with two hallways and no access or window to the outside.This was not in the room description when I booked it. The room was like a cave and was unacceptable.

        We appreciated the cleanliness. My husband used the pool. I used the exercise room. We both benefited from the small refrigerator and coffee maker.

        The room was spotless. Staff were friendly and polite. Transit access close by and a short cab ride downtown. Price was reasonable. Beds comfortable. Despite my comments under the "negative" heading, I'd reccomend this hotel for budget-minded people who don't want or need frills. I'll stay again myself if I can have an outside room.

        1) The room appeared to have been created when they added an extra layer of rooms to the outside of the hotel. It had two doors and one window, all opening/looking into a corridor. 2) The bathroom had the toilet placed inches from the tub, beside it, and narrowed toward the door--a claustrophobe would've gone nuts. 3) The room was excessivley cramped with two large single beds--A queen would have been better. 4) The breakfast was cheap. A little fresh fruit, yoghurt, bacon, a free newspaper, and china plates would have made a world of difference.

        Nothing really special, just normal.

        "Complimentary Breakfast" from 07:00 to 09:00!!! Just toast, jam, juice, fruit. Some hot brown water, they call it caffe. The only hotel in the world where breakfast is so short and finishes at 9:00 am!!! At 08:50 they started already to take things away. Elevetor takes about 72 seconds to bring you from Lobby to first floor, just 4 meters. Wow!

        The hotel is well located, near the Banff Trail Station, which gives you the possibility either to go or take the connection to the main points of the city by CTrain. The room was well cleaned and equipped with good furnitures for a business trip. The free wireless internet works very well and the staff was very kind and available to promptly serve.

        Watched our son(s) playing baseball for Univeristy of Calgary at Foothills Stadium, so the location was excellent.

        The first room we were in was a twin and it was just too small, congested, not able to move around for two people, luggage , etc. and that window - what a shock when we opened the curtain and it was a hallway.! Anyway, we were moved to a lovely double queen room.The night desk staff was not very welcoming either (first night).
