We stay here often, and have always found the rooms to be clean and comfortable. Parking is sufficient even though there is no extra space (location is called Motel Village, and the Village is crowded). Especially convenient if you have business downtown or at the university, as LRT stop is right beside the Village. The LRT train runs close to the Econo Lodge, but it has never bothered us noise-wise.
Front desk people have always been very helpful. Thank you.

Room tip: If room is between lobby and road, choose second floor to avoid heavy foot-noise from the balcony walkway.

Clean sheets and fluffy towels made for a good nights sleep. Hotel is located right off the #1 highway and its close to fast food outlets. For convenience and affordability it deserves top marks. Staff were friendly and welcoming.

Really good hotel, clean tidy, had coffee in room. Great hotel for an overnight stay whilst visiting relatives. Didn't have time for breakfast in the am so can't comment. But definately recommend especially for Calgary stampede season as not far at all!

Hotel is in Hotel Village across from McMahon Stadium so lots of choices of places to stay. Parking is tight, rooms are a bit compact. Breakfast is included but no hot meal and minimal choices...coffee is awful. Pool is nice but the exercise room is quite tiny and limited equipment. It's an ok place for a night but I don't think I would enjoy a longer term stay. Watch out in the morning, the elevators are hogged by the housekeeping staff so virtually impossible to get up or down at that time.

Let's start with the fact that the a bar of soap from the previous guest, with hair, was still in the soap dish when I arrived. Let's then add that at midnight, a clock radio started blaring from an unoccupied adjoining room for precisely one hour (probably was unplugged by a guest, thoughtlessly plugged back in by cleaning staff without checking to see if the alarm was in the "off" position.) Rusting metal straps held the baseboard heaters in place in both the washroom and main room. You get the picture.

There are many hotel choices on this street, of varying quality and price. This facility truly puts the "econo" in Econo Lodge. The price point is low, no question. However the room, or at least some of the rooms, make it clear why this is the case. I gather that there are newer rooms than the one I stayed in. My portion of the building was at the back of the lot. My room was old, with dated furnishings, a distinct lack of electrical outlets, and a fraying carpet. I ended up sleeping on top of the bed in my own sleeping bag. I just did not have a good feeling about this place. At all.

Checking out after a miserable night - my neighbours were up till 2am, and there is little to filter out noise between rooms - I was not asked by staff at all about how my stay was. I suppose they knew better than to pose such a question.
