“Average Budget Hotel”
Reviewed 10 September 2013

This hotel is an average budget hotel. It is an older hotel, but it was clean. The room was large. It had a coffee maker in the room and a micro/fridge. It did have a small a/c unit and baseboard heat. The tv was an old analog tv with about 40 stations. The bed is soft.

Breakfast was average. They had coffee, tea, cold cereal, fruit, and pastries.

I found my bed too soft but it did not bother my husband. The air conditioner was very loud. The staff was very nice. Your building was hard to get into from the road.For us to stay again we found the traffic very loud

Facility is in a very poor condition. Only best thing is location rest of all is not bad. It should be called a Motel not a Hotel. Although looks like a choices hotels chain but not at par with other Choice group associations. Carpet are stained and very poor condition of hotel room. No elevator for upper floor. Noisy people at night time.

I booked my room with Roomstays (which is a whole bad ordeal its self and never will be dealt with again) but I called the hotel after I did my reservation, and asked if my husband would need his own credit card upon arrival for security funds. they employee I spoke with did not even answer saying "thriftlodge" or anything and he told me that his room was paid for and he did NOT need a credit card when he gets there. well my husband arrived at 230am and called me (430am) and complained because the employee at the time said that his room was not paid for. my husband showed him his confirmation email and the employe still argued. finally after a while the employe realised where he mistake was made and that it was paid by roomstay. he then wanted a credit card number for the security funds, which was said previously that he did not need one. well I gave my husband my mothers number over the phone and the employe accepted it, (which he was not supposed to),, but im happy he did because my husband would have slept on the streets. and he had almost no more money left because "roomstay" said he was within 5 miles from the airport, but he was 19kms away so his taxi was 60$$...

I was not impressed with roomstay and this hotel. they both agreed to no security funds and they both screwed up. I have that their customer service can be fixed

Clean room. No bugs crawling in my bed. Bathroom fine and soap provided. It definitley is not a tip top modern establishment but just fine if you are looking for a place to sleep. I found the man at the front desk to be service minded. I have seen a few bad reviews of the motel and maybe its just a matter of luck with the room you are given and with the neighbouring guests, but i have no big complaints.

Normally i would write that you get what you pay for, but to be fair i did find the price of this motel to be steep. This is more a comment on the fact that Calgary is a very expensive city. This place was definitley a budget option relative to other hotels.
