Recent guest reviews

Check in was fast and easy. They had clean spacious rooms. Great front desk service.The playpen that was brought up for our child was clean and in good condition. Highly recommend this hotel for a family quick stay.

Stayed for 1 night in October for business. Location is great, easy in and out parking. Restaurants nearby. Breakfast was good, the regular free hotel breakfast - but enough you should be able to find something you like. Front desk staff was very friendly. Business Centre was well stocked and easy to use, no wait to get to a computer or printer for a couple things I needed. Room was clean and comfortable. Nice beds. The hallways, paint and wallpaper could use a little refresher in my opinion. It's dark reds and oranges and dark blues, gives it a bit of a dated feel. Overall great stay

We went to Calgary for the weekend with friends and were attending an event at the BMO Centre. Location of this hotel was key. Service was outstanding at every interaction. We were upgraded at check in due to our BW status. Room was clean and well laid out. Breakfast was very good both days we were there. Would definitely come back.

The staff ensured we got an upgrade because of my Platinum Best Western card and it made out stay very pleasant. The rooms were superb and the breakfast was one of the best at a hotel. Highly recommend this hotel because they went out of their way to make our stay memorable.

The rooms are clean and the beds are amazingly comfortable. The price is very reasonable. Staff members are super efficient and kind. Location is prime as it’s right downtown. It’s close to wherever you want to go.

Overall Best Western is in ideal location in Calgary Down Town. We had difficulty in accessing to Wifi. Not used wifi at all. The reception said we need to call the provider for that in the night. Staff very helpful and the price is also reasonable.

Wonderful experience!! Rooms were modern and wifi in room was fast and reliable. Daily room service was provided and beds were terrific. Great sleep. We are now contemplating replacing our mattress at home. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Hot Breakfast was more than adequate and mains were changed on a 3 day rotation.

Receptionist was rude, lied to us and was not ready to address the plumbing issues we had. Bad amenities and odour in the room. My husband and I use BW quite a lot but had a very terrible experience with this one

Everything was great for an awesome price! Got a great price for downtown hotel in Calgary on a weekend. The beds were very comfortable and the free breakfast was just perfect for us. It was nice that the breakfast was served until 11:00 am on the weekend.

'Meh' would be the way to describe this hotel in one word. Front desk staff is mostly efficient, not all too friendly. Rooms and the rest of the hotel are a bit dated but fairly clean, breakfast is ok but nothing special, location is so so (just a bit too far to walk to downtown), parking is free though. Parking lot unfortunately is not free of sometimes a bit shady characters that hang around the area, asking for change and/or cigarettes. Ask for a room at the back of the hotel, the ones facing 8th Street can be quite noisy due to traffic and, apparently, poor soundproofing. Walls seem to be paper thin as well, you could hear very clearly the neighbors taking a shower. WiFi in the room was super spotty and slow. All in all just barely ok, provided you can get a room at a cheap rate.
