Very nice hotel, clean, light and airy rooms and the beds were quite comfortable. the room I had all the usual comforts such as a microwave and a fridge. It also had a hot plate and utensils for cooking if required. It had an elevator for the tower and 2nd floor rooms on the eastern side. The hotel also had an indoor pool and spa. The staff were cheerful and helpful. If there is to be a fault it would be that the breakfast was very basic, to compensate there was a 24hr diner and an Irish bar 0.5kms away.

Clean. Quiet. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Shower is small. Wifi could be better. I am tired of the less housekeeping service unless I ask for it. I’m in a hotel I want service. Elevator did break down on check out day. Would have been nice to have help. But housekeeping staff were going to have a hard time. Overall a comfortable stay

Good location, clean and good service. We stayed for the Stampede. Was very easy to get the train to town and the stampede event area. Small pool and spa. Mini fridge in room and ice machine available in corridor.

Quite good, as usual. Enough parking, even when the hotel was full-ish. Breakfast was fine, laundry room, small fitness center, pool - all OK. Wifi worked fine. Room was fine (top floor), clean enough, everything worked. Same as my previous visits. Elevator was out for a day, which was a pain (5th floor) but it was only for a day.

Small, inexpensive, clean place to stay for one night. Check in an and was fast and efficient. I would have given it a higher rating but the elevator is still broken. This note has been here for a couple of years

Needed a place near University and health facilities and this was the right place. Economical, great service, and satisfactory accommodation. Nice breakfast to start the day as well. It met all our needs. Also small pool and fitness center available in building. A rapid transit train station is also close by.

Exactly what you expect from econo lodge. Good location. Coffee and whatever the other splashed brown substance on the unwashed walls and the underwhelming breakfast is what scores this a 2 star, but a 3 star is max potential of this establishment

Stayed here a week in October. Front desk was welcoming & very helpful. Housekeeping is friendly. Overall clean & quiet. Steps away from C train & a few eateries. A Customer Service Assistant called Mark is especially friendly & helped me move from one room to the other, & helped me tune for TV channels. He is always smiling & friendly. Would definitely stay here again next time.

We have an electric car and so when we travel if possible we try stay in hotels that have an electric vehicle charger on site. I always call the hotel directly to confirm as the websites are not always accurate. We called this hotel directly before booking onine and were advised by the woman on the phone (who had to put us on hold while she checked), that there was a car charger in the covered parking area. Great - the only warning was it was first come first served (which is how most are). When we arrived we asked where the vehicle charger was located and due to language issues the front desk person thought we were talking about a car cell phone charger... but another person came over and told us no EV charger on site. That was the whole reason for booking at this hotel and on a long weekend most places nearby were sold out. So we had to change our schedule to go and find a car charger instead of being able to do this at the hotel as planned. We would not have booked had we been given accurate information. And to pour salt in the wound, after we checked in the same person at the front desk who thought we wanted a cell phone charger called to ask if we were satisfied with the room, and I said room was fine but unhappy about no EV charger, he got confused and put us on hold and left us on hold... I eventually just hung up. Poor service. Hotel was clean. Our room was large but very spartan in furnishings and dated except new flooring. Bed was OK and no issue with noise. Shower head was long past its prime so not a great shower. Door into the room was backwards and swung to the open room and not to the wall but it had a door arm on it so you could not open all the way. Thiis made it hard to get luggage into the room as there was a table that limited access. Never tried the included breakfast. Why don't hotels offer the breakfast right until check out time? Why do they cut if off so early? I feel ripped off.

Awful place smoked in rooms refused refund . The room offered was filthy and heavily smoked in . Got told too bad we can’t help you but still took our money. Dreadful place. I understand that the hotel can’t control people smoking in a room but this should be identified when cleaned , but linen stained so cleaning standards clearly not up to par.
