Good Basic Stay

We arrived late and had an easy check-in. Motel was older, but well kept up. In particular, the Bathroom was large, very new, and clean. Room was small, but workable. Bed was a bit soft. Breakfast was standard with no frills.

Great location @ affordable rates

I was here on business trip and this location is best as its just 5 Km away from downtown and it offers very economical rates. Few stores like Real Canadian wholesale, Rental Car[Budget], GAS station, Fast-food joints[Sub-way, Mr. Sub etc.] are all within vicinity of a Km. Bus stop & Railway station for Calgary transport are at walkable distance right across the street. Great place to stay at price they offer!!

quiet, friendly, and easily accessable.

Rooms are a bit small, but who comes to Calgary to sit in a room. Great room for the money. Good nights sleep and refreshed for the next day.

Expensive and low cost dining both up and down MaCloed and all with walking distance or a very convenient drive. Don't forget the Mall just a few blocks down the road.

Very good value

I stayed at this motel while watching my daughter compete in the 2008 UANA Synchronized Swimming championships at the Talisman Centre. This motel was very conveniently located to the Talisman Centre and the Downtown area. It is next to MacLeaod Trail which does create a fair amount of road noise, however, I had no trouble sleeping. The motel is not new but seems to be clean and reasonably well remodled and appointed. My room was very clean and wireless internet worked very well. I needed basic accomadations in a convenient location at a reasonable price. If you're looking for that, I recommend this motel. If you're looking for luxury, find another motel but be prepared to pay a much higher amount. There are lots of eating establishments within minutes and the large Chinnock Shopping Centre is just about a mile down the road.
