This hotel I've stayed at on four other occasions. It is fairly basic but clean and the bed is comfortable. It is close to some good restaurants (Nick's Steakhouse) and is mostly quiet. The King room on the top floor had a pull out sofa sleeper a mini refrigerator and microwave. The flat screen tv is nice but the channel selection was minimal. Free parking around the back and seems secure. All in all, I'll be back

We came to this Travelodge in not the best circumstances after being messed around by another place in the area. The staff were really friendly, listened to what had happened, and did all in their power to make exceptions and help us out (as two British tourists a bit stuck with virtually no money until Thursday!). The room is clean and spacious, with a good tv and bathroom with nice amenities. Would be five star just for the staff and the help they'd given us, but location isn't the greatest (although there is everything you need in the area and easy access to Calgary on the tram) and the AC does need fixing/turning on. Overall: thank you to the people who helped us NOT be homeless for 2 nights!

Room Tip: We slept in King Size; really nice room! Everything you need including microwave and fridge.

I have stayed here in the past and it appears to be in need of some updating. It has a decent breakfast and the staff were helpful and considerate.

The room had a pungent odour. Chemical smell. The AC was taped up and the room was extremely hot. Wook up seating and unable to do anything about it. Frustrating. The cutains are sheers only allowing lights in back parking lot to shine into room all night long. Long night little sleep. No smoking but could smell smoke all night long. Got abut 2 or 3 hours sleep. I wil NOT stay here again

Room Tip: no restaurnat or room service so rating above does not apply

Hello!
Thank you for taking the time to review our property.
It is unsettling to hear that you experienced a pungent odour in one of our rooms, as our housekeepers work hard daily to ensure each room is clean and fresh. Our Air conditioning units are offline during the long winter months we experience here in Calgary. I am sorry to hear the room was too warm for you, and I do apologize for the inconvenience. During this transition into spring, we monitor room temperatures closely in our best effort to ensure all of our guests are comfortable.
Each room does come equipped with “black-out” curtains to block out the lights from the parking lots, I am sorry to hear you were unaware of this and we will re-evaluate the best way to inform guests of this option. We do still have a few smoking rooms available on the first floor, however if a guest smells smoke or any other odour, we prefer the front desk is notified in order to have an opportunity to investigate the source.
We do not have a restaurant on site, however we do serve a large continental breakfast each morning, and there is a great variety of excellent eating just steps away from the hotel. While we do not have room service for food delivery, we do have front desk staff available 24-7 available to answer any questions you may have, or provide you with additional linens and amenities.
Again I thank you for your comments and please know that your concerns are our concerns! I do apologize for your unsatisfactory stay and sincerely hope you will give us a chance to better serve you in the future.
Thank you,
