              • Family with children
                10.0

                Staff was friendly and efficient. Beds were comfortable. Room was clean.

                Room was a little on the snug side. It was fine for the night but if I were to stay longer it would have been too small.

              • Family with children
                9.6

                relatively quiet and a good location.

                the sink in the bathroom would back up when someone else would use their bathroom.

              • Family with children
                8.2

                I was very satisfied of staying at the hotel

              • Older travelers
                9.2

                Great all round, exceeded our expectations for a budget priced motel

              • Older travelers
                7.8

                Short walk to train station to travel into the city. Free parking and inclusive continental breakfast. Comfortable beds

                No on site restaurant but plenty of places to eat in the vicinity

              • Family with children
                8.2

                Rate is good, room is spacy, location is best

                breakfast need to improve, add eggs

              • Older travelers
                8.8

                The staff was nice and efficient. It was located in an area where it was easy to access attractions.

              • Older travelers
                7.8

                Location and affordability, it was close to the Foothills Hospital and reasonably priced.

                Parking. Spots were tight.

              • Group of friends
                4.2

                Basic breakfast, far from everything, basic service

              • Single
                6.2

                The complimentary breakfast is a nice touch.

                Asked for first floor because of travelling with a senior and was not told there were none available. Received a third floor room quite a ways down the hall.

              • Older travelers
                9.2

                1. The breakfast was good. 2. I like the gym that was available. 3. The location was convenient.

                In general.

              • Older travelers
                7.4

                Location of this Inn is excellent. easy access to downtown either driving or via train station which is just opposite the Inn. Room is large and comfortable and clean. nice bed to sleep in. Parking space is ample.

                Breakfast is too basic. The space for breakfast is inadequate, so some are left to eat with standing space only. I was given a room where the curtain could not close fully, so had to sleep with the full glare of the lights from adjacent hotel.

              • Family with children
                7.4

                Chose it for proximity to University of Calgary.

              • Couple
                6.4

                vacinity

                The first morning there was no hot water. When we mentioned it to the staff, they didn't seem surprised. They said a big group had just checked out and probably used all the hot water.

              • Older travelers
                10.0

                See above. The main reason we chose this hotel was that it was close to our new grandson's home. We plan to stay there again. Do you have weekly rates? Also we were given a pass for the parkade at the Hamilton Hotel because we checked in late on the Friday evening. There was a snow storm & it was nice to be able to park inside. They let us keep parking there for our entire stay. Nice!
