It's a couple steps above those dreadful Candlewood Suites. It is most definitely not up to Marriott's Residence Inn standards and several steps below Starwood's Element by Westin. This property was formerly a Residence Inn so it'll look familiar. Check-in was pleasant enough but that will be your last best experience. Staff members rarely smile or even bother to greet you. Housekeeping leaves a lot to be desired. They will not rinse dishes or even make up the bed! You wonder if they even stopped by. After checking in your first stop should be to the supermarket as the toilet tissue provided is completely unacceptable. The quality of breakfast is rather poor although there is a reasonable variety. There's a Tim Horton's just across the parking lot. This hotel is popular with families so if you're on business, you will probably be happier at the new Residence Inn just a few blocks north or the Four Points a few blocks to the south. I previously stayed here in February and not much has changed since then. Unfortunately, this is the client's hotel of choice.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms facing the warehouses behind the hotel. These are all even numbered rooms above n14 (114, 214, etc.) Trucks come and go all night.

Robert,

It is vitally important when on the road, be it for business or pleasure, to be happy with your accommodation. The days just go better.

The Lakeview Signature Inn will continue to strive to be the best at what we are and choose to offer. We have and will continue to provide value in a clean friendly accommodating mid-tier hotel environment that many others on this site have attested to. We all understand that we are not all things to all people. To try to be would be a failure. No other hotel in Calgary has increased 40 positions in public ratings and to that end we will not stop trying to be the best of what we are. I believe your clients will understand.

Cheers!

I have to say for the price we were expecting a simple motel style hotel, but boy were we wrong! A great hotel, amazing room with comfy bed, kitchen area, living area with TV & a second TV in the bedroom. Little things included like a welcome bowl with popcorn ready to pop, candies in a jar, cookies and fruit at the front desk, welcoming water or juice in reception. Breakfast included was good too, simple but still substantial. The staff were all friendly and helpful. We only stayed one night before catching a flight, but would stay here again for longer and use it as a base to explore the region.

Room Tip: Great for airport access.

Kath-Lee,

Thank you for discovering our little hotel, choosing to stay with us, and for providing such a wonderful review. Very much appreciated.

We do not aspire to be sophisticated. Others in our industry do that much better than we ever could. so our concentration falls toward other areas. i.e. cleanliness, friendliness, value, and solid quality in what we target to be and provide.

I hope we might have the pleasure again on your next western Canada trip. -We are sure you haven't seen it all yet!

Cheers!

We stayed overnight in August 2014 and paid $150/ night on an expedia internet rate. Check in was quick and efficient.

The property has very nice curb appeal and a decent amount of parking. Its only about 5 min away from the airport and I saw a shuttle. There is a Tim Hortons and Cactus Club restaurant right in the parking lot. Tons of other places near by for services. A mall is about 4 blocks away with a movie theatre.

We upgraded to a suites with completely separate bedroom and pull out sofabed. There was a full kitchen with full size fridge, a 2 burner cooking element microwave, Kureig with complementary coffee disks and even a bowl of microwave popcorn packets. The linens were half decent as were the shampoos. The bed was very comfy. It was very clean. There is free wifi that was decently fast. A flat screen TV was in both the bed room and common area of the suite.

Theres an indoor pool and a tennis court outside. There was a gas BBQ grill outside for guests (nice touch). We missed the complimentary breakfast as it only runs till 930. Boo! Who ever heard of a meal time running to the half hour. It should be till 10am like most places. Having said that the front desk had a fruit bowl, cookie jar and punch bowl to raid so I don’t feel too left out. This is definitely one of my new favorites in Calgary.

Here`s the stats for those wanting the concise version:

Curb Appeal: 8/10
General Resort Cleanliness: 9/10
Room Décor: 9/10
Bed Comfort & Quality: 9/10
Linen: 7/10
Housekeeping: 9/10

Staff Friendliness: 9/10

Saskheat,

Thank you for choosing to stay with us and for your very detailed review. I am sure many will find it informative and ultimately helpful.

We are a little Canadian hotel company operating in a big pond of multinational competitors. We think we provide a local hospitality flavour that is a little different from the 'typical,' While we strive to have high integrity as it relates to our product and business operations, we don't have that much interest in being multinational typical.

In interest of everyone, our breakfast hours are 6:30 to 9:30 weekdays, and 7:00 to 10:00 weekend and holidays. We inventory over 70 individual items on our breakfast buffet. We also offer an evening 'snack' Monday through Thursday evenings from 5:30 to 7:00 pm.. Cookies, fruit, cold drinks, coffee and tea are always available in the lobby to our guests. Buy a steak and we provide the BBQ and utensils to cook it with, after you burn some calories shooting hoops on the sports court with friends and family.

Cheers!

My client paid for the room so I'm not sure of the price but I do know that the food was alright and the hot tub was blowing cold water and the pool was FREEZING! It was VERY CLEAN. The workers weren't overly kind or concerned about customer service. Our room was loud but it wasn't loud because of planes or people it was appliances and random noises.... Probably wouldn't stay there again, but I also wouldn't try to defer anyone. Nice place just nothing "special".
Thanks for the stay. Just not my style.

Camillel,

We appreciate your feedback. Thanks. We have no issue that you would prefer a hotel of a different type. There are many types of hotels in the market for that very reason. No one hotel can be, or should try to be, all things to all people, as it will cause failure in the end.

I regret mostly that you didn't find our employee to be over kind, which for us, needs to be a the heart of almost everything we do. While accepting your opinion as fact, I am very shocked by it as that behavior seems quite out of character for us as suggested by numerous other comments made on this web site. I appreciate you saying it. Thank you.

The pool and hot tub have been repaired from last Friday and are operating normally at this time. Hearing we had a mechanical issue with them, I was in the pool area Friday, as was the contracted company that assists us with such matters. For guests who wanted to use these amenities and mentioned it to us, we provided reimbursement to a local and fabulous water park, while our contractor went about repairing it issue.

Thanks again for your feedback. It is very much appreciated. Our wish for everyone is to stay at a hotel that makes them happy. We will constantly strive to be the best hotel value experience within the market segment that we have been successful at making happy.

Cheers!

It was ok. Had a better experience 2 years ago. Hot tub wasn't working this time and the movie selection is quite poor. It was clean though and the beds are comfy. One bedrooms do not have an oven, only a 2 burner stove.

Thank you for choosing to stay with us again and taking the time to provide your review. Both are very appreciated.

The good news is that the hot tub available and functioning properly. (I am not sure if you spoke with us or not, but for guests who expressed interest in the hot tub when it was being repaired, we offered to reimburse admission to a nearby water park, which admittedly provides much more of a water park experience that we do at the best of times.)

'Our Free To Guest' movie offering is currently under reviewed. You may expect some changes at some point in the future. You are correct about no oven in our one bedroom suites. As is indicated on all our published information if a four burner full stove and oven are important a two bedroom suite is the assured way to go. We do have a few Studio suites with a full oven, but not enough to assure a guest that they will have one. As such, we do not market studios nor one bedroom suites as having a full stove and oven. - Providing a positive surprise is better business than a providing negative one.

Thanks again.

Cheers!
