“Motel from 70's”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2014

The carpets were old and frayed - the internet was almost non-existent and I tried with 3 different devices all over the property. According to the date on my mattress it was over 8 years old, the bed frame was hastily repaired with plywood. The first room they gave me looked like a crime scene with food everywhere and spills not even mopped up. The windows took a half hour to lock as they are antique aluminum sliders that rattle constantly in the wind.

Thank you for reviewing us on your recent stay. I apologize that your experience was anything less than satisfying. I have checked our wireless internet connection and the signal is excellent. However, we have a restriction limit on how much each guest could download during usage. This help prevent abuse of usage and make it fair for browsing equality. Our property has surely come of age but we do not take its maintenance and cleanliness lightly. I hope you will give us another chance to serve you in the future.

Regards,
Kobbie Larbi G.M.

Smoking was the default when we booked rooms. This needs to change as I could barely breathe. Change that or inform people better. We assumed incorrectly that all hotels were not smoking, so we didn't think we had to look.

Thank you for sharing your reservation experience during your recent stay. We are among few other hotels in Calgary that still provide smoking rooms. We have verified your booking issue and we do not have smoking rooms as our default choice online. You definitely overlooked and assumed that we are 100 percent non-smoking hotel. We do apologize for the inconvenience caused and we hope you will give us another chance to serve you.

I can't believe this is part of the Wyndham group.
Taps in the bathroom weren't cleaned...was the toilet?
Drink stains on the night table.
It was -2 C outside, 30 Fahrenheit and 85 inside. I had to open my windows and turn the A/C on and still it's too hot.
Parking was the pits.
Smoking rooms across the hall from non smoking; smoking rooms next to no smoking rooms.
Dust bunnies in the ceiling corners.
You'll never see ME here again.

Thank you for sharing your experience of your recent stay. Even though our property is coming of age, we take cleanliness very seriously. I apologize that your experience was anything less than satisfying. Did you report any of these identified discrepancies to our staff? Without notifying us about these discrepancies during your stay, we would not able to solve it until you have checked out. I would be delighted to discuss this further with you if you wish. Please contact the hotel and ask for the manager. Once again, thank your for sharing your experience and we hope you will give us another chance to serve you.

It ws clean and tidy. However, the walls are super thin and there is a lot of activity at night. Laundry and other work is done in the graveyard shift. Sounded like a herd of elephants. my best night I got 5 hours sleep. Worst was 2.5. Most was 4 hours. I was so happy to make it home.

Thank you for taking the time out of your schedule to share your experience. We apologize that your experience was anything less than satisfying. Our guest laundry facility closes at 10pm everyday and we are not sure whether you were hearing something different. Did you inform the Front Desk about the excessive noise? Once these issues are reported, we do investigate right away and make sure it get fixed. I will be happy to discuss this further if you wish. Please do not hesitate in contacting me directly at the hotel. We hope to accommodate you once again.
