Recent guest reviews

This is a great location with easy access to the city or restaurants. Unna pizza about ten minutes walk away s woth a visit. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. Breakfast was included. Very basic but adequate. Rooms clean, parking on site. Good value form money.

Nice friendly staff and a very quiet hotel. Had a great sleep. Manager is extremely friendly and when I requested a shower versus a bathtub he gave me an upgrade. The desk staff were very helpful with getting me a cab and they always had genuine smiles on their faces.

If you staying in Calgary this is the place of choice. Excellent place to stay, good location, very clean and relaxing, good breakfast and very helpful staff. The room is very spacious and the bed is very comfortable.

Upon arrival we were greeted by the staff to help us find a parking space as the lot was full and we were driving a truck so we were unable to use the underground parking. The staff was awesome and very helpful. Room was spacious and comfortable. The hotel was very easy to find. Was great for a weekend getaway. Check in and check out was very easy. I may have left some jewelry behind and I have called the hotel and they keep on telling me they will see and call me back, but I have not received a call back.

It is nice hotel in terms of accessibility. The staff are friendly and cooperative. As I mentioned above it is better if you regularly provide tooth brush and paste as you do for soaps and lotion. Similarly shaver has to be served.

Staff was great, room was clean and quiet. booked during a busy week. Staff was helpful in pointing out a running route in the early evening. Parking was secure and check out was a breeze. A little ways from downtown core but short walk.

A must stay! These suites are worth every penny. I stayed here for two nights and it was one of the best Best Westerns out there. The suites are spacious and the bed was quite comfortable. The soaker tub was nice to come back to after a long day touristing downtown. I also made use of the kitchenette, very convenient. Staff are extremely friendly and accommodating. They did not hesitate to bring up requested pillows and blankets, as well as help me make a waffle for breakfast. They also have a variety of food items and the menu changes every day so you can expect your tastebuds to be satisfied. A MUST BOOK.

Was in Calgary for business and saw this hotel nearby. The room was excellent, clean and comfortable. The location is wonderful. a short walk through a nice neighborhood to the 16th/17th Ave restaurants and bars. Free wifi, convenient breakfast.

The hotel does what it says in the name. It is the best value. We were tired from a long drive, made longer as it was the day of the Calgary Marathon. We were, hot and fed up. the staff were wonderful. An oasis in a desert of terrible cheap hotels. I would recommend this hotel to anyone going to Calgary

I made our reservation for my husband and I with another group of guest that had 5 additional rooms rented. The men all went golfing while we went shopping. My husbands wallet and luggage got put into another vehicle so my husband didn't have his ID or Credit card. But all the other 5 rooms where being checked in at the same time. They would not let my husband check in because he didn't have his ID but everyone in the group confirmed who he was. They didn't even try to call my cell phone to verify whom he was. So he had to wait an hour until I could get to the hotel to get his wallet to check in. Even tho I had a credit card on file to reserve the room. Staff didn't even try to accommodate him by letting him check into our room until I got there.
