Stayed here to attend a concert at Macewan Hall. ( $10 Uber ride away). Chose this hotel because it was very inexpensive and had good reviews. Hotel staff was very friendly. Room was good, we had a 2 queen bed room on the 5th floor. Plenty of space, there was a fridge and coffee

Econo Lodge Inn is a very good hotel in its category. If you are looking for something cheaper just to spend a night in, this is a good choice. We do not need any luxury, the people are what makes a place good or bad. Here they have super nice staff members in all departments.

We went back again was hoping the problem would be resolved. Same dingy bath tub issue. The room itself was clean and we were only staying for one day, so we made no fuss. Love the fact that the room has microwave and small fridge. Visited to attend family funeral.

Thank you for your comments and we're sorry to hear you were disappointed. We would like to take the opportunity to clarify that we have already renovated our East and West Buildings and our Tower is slated for renovations to start within the next week at which point all the tubs will be replaced as you are right, they are old and the finish is gone. We hope to have you stay with us again so we can have the opportunity to show you a stay in our newly renovated buildings. Thanks!

We had an excellent stay at this motel. The room was better than we expected. The front desk clerk was very efficient, knowledgeable and helpful. The continental breakfast room in the morning was busy but understandable as the food selection was large and the food was fresh as

I stay in many many hotels for business. This place has BY FAR the WORST MANAGEMENT! They are a smear on Econo Logdges good name. Corporate would have a fit if they knew what is going on at this nasty place. These Managers need to spend a night in any of the fine hotels in Calgary to get schooled on how it is done.

"If you are a light sleeper, ask for a room on the fifth floor."
"Our room was in the tower facing North, nice and quiet."
"Don't stay here. Choose another in another location where fewer night crawlers around and where better security."
"Rooms on the east side are away from the parking lot."
"pick a different hotel!"
