“Found a crack pipe under my bathroom sink DO NOT STAY HERE”
Reviewed 28 November 2012

I had stayed here for two weeks with my husband. We were here for business and so I had paid weekly, otherwise we wouldnt have stayed here that long. The first night was ok, the rooms are incredibly dry (we both woke up with bloody noses) and very very noisey. You can hear everything in this hotel. I could hear ppl upstairs peeing, pacing the room, his TV, and his conversations. A couple stayed next to us, and they were big time crack heads. We heard them having sex, arguing, cracking their beers, EVERYTHING. We had to complain about them every night but nothing ever came of it. They stayed their whole duration, even though if we recorded with our phones they might as well of been standing right in front of us. The staff were really rude. Once, when I was complaining about the crack head couple, the front desk lady with grayhair and pink lips told me she couldnt move them they were full (next night hotel was empty except us and them), and that if anything she would move ME!! She also gave me the third degree about where I smoke and how much I smoke at home because we were staying in a smoke free room. I had to tell her, not that it was any of her business, that my husband and I smoke very little and not inside and that it was OUR CHOICE what room we had. What a witch! The second worst part, after the crack head couple, was finding a crack pipe equipped with lighter and little white rock under my bathroom sink. The only reason this was second worst was because it didnt make noise. The cleaning lady is nice, but not too thorough and so it stayed there right up until the day we left. Ill bet if you stay in rm 5, itll still be there. Do not stay here, anyone. This is a crack shack and you wont get your moneys worth even if it is the cheqpest rate in town. There is a reason for it.

Room Tip: Stay some where else.

We used this motel as "overflow" sleeping accommodation for a large family gathering in a nearby neighbourhood. Location and price were the deciding factors. The location isn't very attractive: McLeod Trail big box / commercial strip, backs up to a Kal Tire, across the road from a Superstore.

Check-in was seamless, they had our reservation, pleasant and knowledgeable staff (the owner?)

Grade level entry "1960's style" was nice for the bicycle were were carrying and using.

Room (one queen bed only) was spacious and quite clean, carpet and mattress reasonably new, no dust bunnies. Bathroom is dated (many years of Ajax cleanings have dulled the finish of the porcelain bathtub) but has seen some maintenance and upgrades.

Traffic noise from McLeod Trail was surprisingly not an issue. Air conditioner (hot August night) was thankfully not excruciatingly loud.

The price is right! $80 (seniors / AMA rate) and that is including tax. You get what you pay for and that is "NO FRILLS": no kettle / coffeemaker, no glasses or china mugs.

There was, however a tiny bar fridge in the room. The ice machine worked.

We did not try the attached restaurant "99 Ave Cafe".

Reviewed 7 July 2011

This is a very basic hotel, that is quite a distance from the airport or the road to Banff and the National Parks. The rooms are very dark making it a challenge to work the air-conditioning, and lack even coffee making facilities, let alone a fridge. No breakfast is offered, but I was given a voucher for a free coffee in the coffee shop next door – but this had closed at 3pm and didn’t reopen until 7am ! That coffee shop is next to a seedy pub. There is a real problem with noise, due to thin walls, and a noisy walkway outside the room that the smokers choose to use for a late night conversation. Add to that a noisy alarm in one of the local buildings which went off intermittently between 2 and 4am and it wasn’t the best of night’s sleep. The upstairs rooms are reached by a metal staircase that is showing signs of rust, with one of the steps being decidedly steeper than the others. All in all there is nothing to recommend this hotel apart from the price.

I have stayed at this propery several times over the past year while visiting family in Calgary. While it is definitly not the fanciest hotel in the area it is a great location and value for the price. It is an older hotel and could definitly benifit from a update. But, if you are only using the room to sleep and shower, as we were, it is perfect. There is a restaurant on the property that is very popular with the locals and the prices are reasonable. Free wi fi and very helpful and friendly staff make this older hotel very comfortable.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the main road for quiet

Staff went out of their way to be helpful and gave us valuable advice on getting around Calgary, using the trains, where to shop, etc. The rooms were great value, beds comfortable and lots of space in the rooms to store all our luggage, leaving room to walk around. We had a great time. Highly recommended!

We stayed at the Stetson to visit family and friends. It was an excellent place. The keepers of the hotel were very accomodating and helpful. I like Calgary a lot and the hotel made my visit very enjoyable.
