    « Great Value, friendly staff »

    The hotel staff was very welcoming and accommodated me with a late check in, which was greatly appreciate as I had my car in the garage on the other side of the city. My queen room was a fair size and renovated recently. I enjoyed the glass shower the most! They stocked my room with MANY toiletries which is greatly appreciated because most hotels give you one of each. Breakfast was a complimentary buffet which was hot and satisfying. I think my favorite part of breakfast was the lady working the breakfast room who greeted me with a big smile, she was very sweet! I will definitely be back as this is an affordable, clean hotel with close proximity to downtown. Thank you!

    This best western is conveniently located to the airport with efficient shuttle service and easy access to main city thoroughfares. Staff are courteous and helpful. Very clean and spacious rooms. Excellent value for your hotel dollar.

    « Super accommodating hotel staff »

    The staff at this fairly central, clean hotel were very accommodating to us. We were travelling as 4 seniors and the staff was very prompt about providing extra coffee, towels, and toiletries. They willingly charged our fitbits. The hot breakfast in the morning was delicious. They also made sure we had a ground level floor room.

    « Under Renovation »

    My room was quite lovely as it had been newly renovated. However I didn't realize that my door did not lock until 6 hours later but they very quickly moved me to a secure room. Nice little snack bar downstairs and I saw a little dining area but as my flight left early the next morning I did not get to use it.

    « An OK Hotel - Good Value »

    If you're looking for a decent place to stay without breaking the bank, this is a good option. The average rating isn't a bad thing in this case - there was nothing to outstanding either good or bad. Despite the name, there are probably 20 hotels closer to the airport, but it's still within 20 minutes drive (if traffic is light). The location at the Intersection of 16th Avenue (Highway 1) and Deerfoot Trail (Highway 2) does offer conveniences other than proximity to the airport. Getting elsewhere in the city is fairly easy, given the hotel is on two major traffic arteries. The room was reasonably clean and comfortable, but not spectacular. It wasn't huge, but it did have both a microwave and small fridge, as well as an iron and board, and an in room coffee maker. The bathroom was fairly modern, no tub, but a spacious shower. One minor inconvenience with the shower - it took a long time to get hot water. There is a small snack shop in the lobby, and a fairly typical hotel hot breakfast is included with the room rate. Decent value, no really glaring problems, but if you're wanting quick access to the airport, there are other, closer options.

    « Great night....wonderful staff »

    We booked a 2 night stay for a wedding but bad weather had us coming in a day late. I contacted the hotel and explained the situation. The front desk receptionist Chris was amazing, she told us not to worry about the room and to get in touch the next morning prior to our arrival so she knew we on our way. She had our room ready when we arrived and the hotel refunded us the night we missed due to the road conditions. The room itself was comfy and served us well. If we return to Calgary for an overnight or extended stay we would definitely return to this hotel.

    « No deposit received back. »

    We came here for the last 2 nights of our honeymoon..... and unfortunately we were left feeling disappointed. Firstly our card into the hotel room didn't work, so after multiple attempts we went back to the reception and got a new key. Once access was gained it seemed that the jacuzzi room we had booked didn't exist!! (Booking.com has been made aware of this by the hotel) We obviously told someone about this and felt angry as we paid extra to have this room. We spoke to the manager who was friendly and wanted to sort our issue, she kindly upgraded us to a king suit further up the hall. This was was nice and just been refurbished. I wanted to take a shower so got myself ready and put the shower on... it was stuck in some sort of powerful jet stream which I couldn't turn off! The more I tried to stop it the more apparent the fact that the shower head wasn't fitted to the wall properly appeared. I stopped there and then as we all know who has to pay the bill if something goes wrong there. The swimming pool and the hot tub were good and clean. the breakfast served in the morning was always good and plenty of variety. We were charged a "holding" fee when we arrived as standard procedure and was told on leaving that it would appear back in out account within 5 working days...  unfortunately this hasn't happened. So over all a disappointing end to our honeymoon but as hotels go it's fairly average with no nasty bits to it...  just not the service we had received everywhere else in Canada.

    Hotel check in was great, spacious room for me and my daughter. Was told tat we got a jacuzzi tub in our room wasnt told that they dont work. Slightly dissapointing but not enough to make me stop coming to Best Western can't win them all. Overal great stay.

    « Trip to Calgary/Jasper »

    On the last night of our stay in the Calgary/Banff/Jasper trip, this motel was very nicely decorated in the lobby. The attendants were so helpful and willing to do whatever we needed. The young man working the night shift was amazing. He knew there were several people leaving very early (3:00 a.m.) for a flight out of Calgary, and he already had the coffee and breakfast items ready so we could have a quick meal before leaving. How accommodating!!!!

    Parking is limited in both availability and space -especially challenging on the weekend. The rooms are small, as is the pool. Would not recommend for a family stay. The hotel is clean. The breakfast has a number of options. Close to attractions and the airport.

    The BW hotel at Calgary's Airport location was top notch and clean and comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The location was very convenient for us and easy access to and fro the highway. This is my second stay at this hotel and I recommend this BW hotel.

    « Good with small kids »

    Stayed for 1 night on our way home. The pool was great for small kids and non swimmers like me. The deep end is only 5 feet. They serve an abundant breakfast. The only downside was the room was supposed to be non smoking but smell of cigarette reaked as soon as we walked in the room.

    « Good Value »

    This is a great hotel if you do not need the look and feel of a modern hotel building.The appearance of the hotel looks dated, but looks like it may have been recently renovated as the washroom fixtures and shower look new. The rooms and facilities are clean and hotel staff were excellent. As usual with Best Western, the included breakfast was nice.

    « Calgary Accomodation »

    This location is convenient for the type of business that I have to do while in Calgary. The rates and service are good. Parking is a challenge, not many spaces and they are very small. The rooms are clean and the breakfast has nice variety.

    « Suspicious staff »

    It was odd. The room was pr-booked though the chain's website and using a customer loyalty account. And it was guaranteed by a credit card. But still the staff was more suspicious than welcoming on check-in.

    « Granddaughter time! »

    It was pretty good. We had to change rooms because we could get into the room. Had difficulty with room keys all weekend. It was nice that they have been doing upgrades. There's no USB ports in the room so we had to get electrical plug for our phones. The staff were super nice and the food was good. It could use a second waffle maker but I guess that's being picky

    « Good hotel, great price »

    The hotel is conveniently located close to the airport and right off the Trans Canada Highway. Room was clean ... recently renovated, staff very friendly and accommodating ... brought extra towels and toiletries when we asked. Their breakfast buffet is free and food selection decent. Will definitely stay here again.

    Twin bed room is small. Parking could be a problem. Hotel was full on a Friday night and we had to park on the street. Service was very good and continental breakfast was also very good. I will stay here again.

    « just average »

    we arrived around 9pm, front desk is not very accommodating, we asked if we could stay in a king bed instead of 2 queen but denied citing safety reason since there were three of us, my son is only 4 years old and is used to sleeping in our bed, we were tired so i didn't argue any further. We were assigned to the ground floor close to the swimming pool, room is clean but tight, no tub just shower, swimming pool water had too much treatment on it my son's eye was irritated all day from the water, i suggest get your pool water checked. Breakfast ok.

    « Above average Best Western »

    The building and facilities were slightly ahead of what I'd been expecting. We stayed here 5 nights, during the Stampede Week. Prices were probably higher than normal as a result. There is a pool (although didn't use it), they do a nice breakfast and there is one lift/ elevator in the 3-storey building. Also On-site parking. The location is fairly central within Calgary too - although not right in the downtown centre, it's easy to get connections to all the main motorways. Plenty restaurants and shopping malls within a short drive, an ideal location Free shuttle service from hotel to airport, and cheap pickup price from airport to hotel No real complaints, would definitely stay here again if in Calgary.

    « Standard Best Western Quality »

    The room is what can come to expect from a Best Western (clean and affordable). The hotel restaurant's dinner menu was not that great. I would suggest going to a local restaurant. The full breakfast was good. There is a decent size pool on-site.

    « Great Location »

    This is one of the best location for a stay in Calgary. It's close to everything and a bee line to Banff. Staff is great and very attentive to any concerns. I would definitely stay here again if I come back to Calgary.

    « Clean, comfortable and central for driving around Calgary »

    Beds were comfortable. A/C unit worked no problem (In some hotels they are impossible). There is a firehall next door but we didn't hear any sirens overnight. Everything was clean. There was no tub but the shower head was high enough on the wall and had different settings which my tall brother enjoyed. The room had two luggage racks and I've only ever seen a room with one. The indoor pool is small and only goes to 5ft deep but it was enough for my Mom who does aquafitness. The breakfast room was quite impressive with even hot items to choose from. Staff kept it clean and stocked. My only complaint would be against the verbally abusive guest we overheard!

    « Good night stay for business. »

    This hotel is very close to the airport, which made it easy in the morning to catch my flight. The staff work very hard to ensure the comfort and satisfaction of their guests. The room was small, but adequate. The breakfast area was very busy the morning I was there, which made the experience time consuming, and a bit frustrating. I also had to take my breakfast to my room as there were no tables left. Overall, a good stay.

    « Great hotel »

    This is the fourth time we have stayed at this hotel and as long as they keep looking after us we will continue to return. It is clean, comfortable, the price is right and it is located in a very convenient place for access to and from most of Calgary or Airdrie.

    « After flight into Calgary »

    We stayed in this hotel after a late flight into Calgary. The rooms were clean and the bed fine. Looks like it had been redone recently. Breakfast was good Parking left a little to the imagination. The front desk staff were very welcoming and helpful as we departed. The cooling system lacked a little

    « Dark and unwelcoming hotel »

    Pillows were too firm and thick, had a sore neck the next morning. Fitness centre open too late (should be open at 6:00 am). Lamps were all unplugged in the room. had to move furniture to plug in lamps then could turn on lights. room was small. Hotel in general was substandard, compared to all the Best Westerns I booked across Canada. (changed my reservation going back home)

    « Best Western - best breakfast »

    This was our first stay at this property and it was most enjoyable. The room was well appointed with a great shower stall that we loved. The staff were friendly and helpful. But above all the breakfast that is included with your room was amazing. Chicken sausage, scrambled eggs, potato fritters, and of course the belgian waffle maker. There was an assortment of real juices and great coffee. Even french toast that could be heated in a toaster. Truly one of the most impressive breakfasts we have had at a BW. As an aside, the desk staff had applied stay to our membership card without be asked. That too is impressive.

    « Reunion »

    It was a better than average good priced Best Western Hotel. Stayed in several of them on interstate 15 from Edmonton to Las Vegas over the years. The bathroom was a tad small but really who cares it would be almost impossible to make them bigger.

    « Good location east end of city »

    Good location if you are coming in by car from the east, and also close to intersection for those travelling south on a highway 2. Smallest bathrooms I've ever seen, no tub ( at least in the room we saw). Don't let them put you in the room that has no outside window (it has a window that looks into the indoor pool). We asked to be moved and they accommodated our request, which was appreciated. Typical breakfast, nice breakfast room

    « Great stay »

    It was great to stay there. I would stay there again next time I went to Calgary. Service and rooms were great. Grab 'n Go is a great idea. Wish more hotels did that. Only suggestion I have is to upgrade the small appliances ie. Irons.

    « Apr 2016 family visit »

    Very pleased with my stay and the staff were great and tried to help in every way possible, However, Best Western refused to give me credits on my REWARD points because I booked through a 3rd party. I paid the hotel price and stayed at the hotel which to me should qualify to earn Reward points so I fail to understand the logic of denying this to me. I always try to use Best Western wherever I travel simply because of the Reward points and they provide very good service

    « Great! »

    Very good experience. The pool and breakfast were both great. All employees that helped me where efficient and thoughtful. They moved my room because in the past there was a problem with the light coming from the parkade coming into my room (last year), this time I didn't have that problem. Pillows were nice also. Thanks for a great stay!

    « Convenient location »

    A nice hotel with up to date decor and a convenient spot...close to the freeway and the airport. It was relatively quiet given its location and it was nice to be able to open a window for some air rather than having to rely on fans. Nice breakfast as well. Obviously more oriented to business clients as by the time we got to the breakfast room, it was almost empty. Sometimes it works to be on vacation and get up a little later.

    « Gift stay from work »

    I had received a gift certificate from work to stay at this particular hotel. My husband and I were very excited. We stayed the night on the way to banff. We had a hard time finding the hotel. It was our first Time in Calgary and We had to drive Back and forth on the highway. Finally we found it, it is located a little further from the highway. Still after finding the bestwestern sign, we had to figure out how to access the building. We requested for a complimentary late check out as we had a late check in, the staffs refused us outright. We asked them again in the morning, they refused us. Would I recommend this hotel? No!! Why? Because the service was not what I was expecting from a best western.

    « Great Hotel »

    We stayed for 2 nights in room 311, a King room. The hotel is 100% non-smoking, so no cigarette odours in the hallways or room. The room was fairly large, but there is not enough room for two people to pass between the end of the bed and the desk/unit. Both of us agreed that the bed was the most comfortable hotel bed we have slept in for a while. The shower is huge and the water pressure is excellent. The hotel is right next to fire station but we never heard any noise from that quarter, in fact the location is exceptionally quiet. The breakfast for the two mornings we were there offered a pleasing variety. All the staff we encountered were friendly and helpful. We will be staying here again the next time we are in Calgary.

    « The staff was not great »

    The staff took up the breakfast room the first day. Took all the bagged breakfasts the the first day. Did not get help on a can opener, told us that it was there then when went to the desk it was taken. Asked for coffee, not enough in the room for a couple of nights stay and got a bad reaction for asking. The door to the bathroom did not lock same with the door to the hall way. The cleaners are the only one that saved that hotel. I have stayed in a lot of hotels and will never stay there again.

    « Awesome stay! spotless rooms, super friendly staff, excellent breakfast buffet »

    Wonderful place to stay..was there last week and when I had to go to Calgary again I chose this Best Western among all the hotels there... super clean rooms with bar fridge and microwave, comfy beds, excellent staff, excellent breakfast buffet included where you can watch a great big screen tv, great little pool and hot tub, at a price that cannot be beat. I've stayed at Hiltons and although they are bigger rooms and flashier, this Best Western feels like home...at 1/3 of the cost.

    I've stayed here before a year ago, and it was still under renovations. I was glad to see that the hotel is beautiful and construction was complete when I came back a second time back in November. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. I had a king business room which was more than what I could have asked for. The shower was wonderful, and the bed was so comfy. The continental breakfast was great and I definitely enjoyed it. This hotel will continue to be my go to hotel when I come to Calgary. Thank you!

    « Horrible Experience! »

    I will never stay here again after my two nights in December! We chose this hotel because it is a Best Western and offered the stay and fly package! The room looked great, but when you have kids and you are on the floor collecting things, I saw how not nice it was. The floor was less than clean, the mouldings were falling off the walls, in some spots the carpet was even lifting. The elevator barley fit the luggage cart, which made it difficult to maneuver. The pool and hot tub were out of service as well. I had to go to the counter twice the first night for new keys, as ours wouldn't work. The shuttle from the hotel to the airport was great. The driver was friendly, and very helpful with our luggage and sending us in the right direction into the airport. Now the worst part of this whole stay, was the shuttle from the airport back to the hotel when we came back from our trip. Before leaving I asked numerous times what the procedure was for the shuttle as we would be arriving at 11pm with a toddler and newborn baby. When we arrived at the airport, I called right away for our shuttle, was told it would be about 20mins. We got to the door that they told us, and waited. My husband went outside to wait for the shuttle and when it arrived, a few people walked up to it, the driver called my name, and my husband said that was us, and that he just had to get me and the kids from inside, he came to get me, and then noticed that the shuttle left with other people instead. I called the hotel and was told I had to wait an hour before the next shuttle would be back......I'm standing in a hotel with a newborn baby and 3 year old, at midnight, after the shuttle i called for left us there.......after some choice words with the hotel staff on the phone, they finally agreed to pay for a cab to bring us back. It took us almost two hours from when I called for the shuttle to get back to the hotel. It was a horrible ending to our trip, and for that reason, I would never go back!

    Everything about this stay is what I would expect except for the coffee in the breakfast room. LIQUID COFFEE at a Best Western!! Come on guys. Thermal coffee or a machine that grinds beans would be much better. I get the 24 hour thing but there are much better options.

    We love staying at Best Western hotels, my son always looks forward to swim in their pools whenever we go for long or short holidays. My husband always looks forward to their hot or warm breakfast, i love their pancake and waffle makers, since breakfast is the most important part of the day. Beds are comfy and washrooms are clean. Towels are fluffy too. We spent our new year holidays on this hotel and it was great.

    If you are staying more than a night or two, looking for all of the comforts of home or anything special, skip this property. This hotel is clean and functional, but that's about it. Small guest rooms, cramped lobby, right next to the fire department (noisy).

    Stayed here two nights before and after flights. The hotel is about a 10 minute drive to the airport and is across the street from a small mall with Vietnamese restaurant, convenience stores and liquor outlet. There is an indoor pool although it was closed for repairs. The buffet breakfast has hot and cold items and was quite extensive for a budget hotel. The rooms were large with good walk-in showers. Large television with multiple stations. Wi-fi was free and easy to access. Staff were friendly and overall better than many hotels of this class. Room rates were quite reasonable although we had booked on Booking.com.

    « Good Value - But Not the Ritz »

    We stayed at the Best Western Airport Inn because it offered good value for our money. Calgary is an expensive city, so we were pleased with the rate that was offered to us. Travelers should understand that this is not Best Western Plus or Premier. It offers good, basic accommodation. For example, our room was clean and we found the bed to be comfortable. My wife, however, was disappointed that our bathroom did not include a bath tub; - only a shower. The complimentary breakfast was very good. We were really impressed with the service provided by the breakfast room attendant. The fitness room contains only two pieces of equipment, and the swimming pool area was closed to all guests. Our major concern with this property was the apparent inexperience of front-desk personnel. The young lady had difficulty explaining credit card pre-authorization to us. She also did not apply a special $25.00 Best Western Credit to our account. Fortunately, a supervisor was able to correct the error. Despite the above concern, we can recommend this property for short-term stays.

    I stayed 1 night - was welcomed by a friendly and knowledgeable front desk clerk. The room was comfortable, and clean. I did have minor issues with the internet, where it was slow for a few minutes here and there. But otherwise had a good stay.

    The Best Western Airport Inn is conveniently located right next to Trans Canada Highway 1 in the NE corner section of Calgary. There is ample free parking and offers a shuttle to the airport. The hotel is clean and offers free breakfast. Be sure to request a room on the upper floors because the ground room we stayed in was smaller.

    « Good hotel, but take the free shuttle. It's 9 miles (15 km) from the airport! »

    Front desk staff were pleasant and room was clean. Property was clearly well-managed. We thought as an "Airport" Inn, it would be close to the airport and therefore we grabbed a taxi. That was a mistake; this Airport Inn is quite far from the airport (9 miles/15 km) and the travel time is roughly 30 minutes. At least if you take the free shuttle, you won't feel the distance as acutely in your wallet.

    « Nice hotel, good staff »

    My overall experience at this hotel was that it is a great option to stay. The staff was very friendly, the rooms are a good size, and everything was clean. I was there for business, and it's important that the wifi works well, which it did. I enjoyed the breakfast. The location was convenient to the airport, and easy to find. My downside to the whole experience was that in the middle of the night, there was a security issue outside my room. I believe it was an unusual event that wouldn't probably ever be recreated, so no details are necessary. My disappointment was that no one offered to move me to another room, or compensated me for a couple of lousy sleeps due to nervousness after a scare. Aside from that, I had a good stay.

    We were on a two week road trip and this was the best room that we had. The pool did not look clean when we were there. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was very similar to other hotel that we stayed at.

    Location was very accessible to our main destination. Breakfast was great. Complement to the lady who works there every morning.. Didn't got her name.. Bed was comfortable specially the pillows.. Very huge room had plenty of space.. Staff was very friendly.. Just some comments: Bathroom was very tight. Sheets have stains. Suggestion: Please do not put towels under the sink. The washroom sink was dripping so towels placed under the counter top was not usable anymore..

    Recent renovations improved the appearance. Staff very friendly. Basic things like refrigerator had broken racks and not levelled/stable in two different rooms. Had heavy smoker stay in room prior to my stay (apparently did not smoke in room) however his B/O or general smoker odor sure did transfer to the room. Staff could not get odor out. I did choose to remain in this room, however the smell was annoying.

    Clean and well maintained. Staff were friendly and welcoming. Good pool work out room and nice to have breakfast in the morning. Good hotel airport. Don't take room on first floor they face the pool and have no fresh air ventilation. Would stay here again but only one night.

    Very clean (small bathroom), professional, polite, cheerful staff including the shuttle driver. Was a ways from airport and we arrived late in the evening so we had a 4hr sleep then had to return to the airpot. We would definetily recommend this hotel to others. Only hotel we use if possible.

    The staff made me feel more than comfortable during my stay, and gave me great references of dining and places to sight see. I would highly recommend this hotel and their staff to anyone traveling in the Calgary, Canada area.

    « Nice Hotel close to #1 and Deerfoot Trail »

    Very handy to Trans Canada and Deerfoot Trail if you have business or family in NE Calgary. Continental breakfast very good except the scrambled eggs left a little to be desired! strange dense texture and cubed! Otherwise good selection of hot and cold. Have stayed here often and have yet ot heat any sirens from the Fire Hall next door.
