    « Very convenient! »

    This hotel was very convenient to accessing all western destinations of Calgary. The rooms were clean and the beds were very comfortable. The central courtyard design is very attractive. It also allows the sound of the pools and the restaurant to travel. However this never became a problem because everyone was quiet between 8:00am and 11:00pm. The temperature was temperate when we were there so the underground parking was not necessary but it was a treat.

    « Nicely renovated »

    No surprises here! Well done reno and immaculate rooms . Staff first class as well. Great breakfast with lots of choice. Restaurant was the nicest amenity. Good meals and great value .two thumbs up.Super close to U of C as well as Mcmhan Stadium. Underground parking is heated dry and secure. Onsite lounge/bar nice and quiet and very reasonably priced.

    « Pleasant stay »

    Good place right across from the stadium. There is underground parking with direct elevator access to the rooms which is key in the winter. Fitness room has quality treadmills, TVs and towels. Breakfast was what I hoped - real scrambled eggs, bacon and hash browns plus juice, yogurt, toast etc. Bed was comfortable and bathroom had plenty of toiletries (mouthwash, show brush, makeup remover, shower cap and more). There is also a Denny's next door. I'd stay again.

    « Concert - one night stay »

    We arrived to stay overnight to attend a concert at Saddledome. Very efficient check in. Hotel is entirely renovated .Although ,it was very busy with short track racers . We experienced no problems. The Room was large, clean ,updated and sufficient bathroom toiletries . There was a coffeemaker , fridge and microwave .Breakfast was included , it had a good variety of choices. We were overall pleasant surprise and would happily stay again. We did not use the pool or gym Areas Parking was underground - well lighted .There are plenty of restaurants within walking distance of hotel We walked to C- train easily to go to our concert . Will recommend this hotel To others

    « Family Trip »

    We stayed at this hotel during the summer of 2015. I enjoyed the close access to the trains, the saddledome, and fast food chains. We arrived Tuesday afternoon and around 5 pm they had a meet and greet in the main floor of the hotel. This was provided with Wine, pop, juice and some appetizers. The manager of the hotel made it his business to come and greet all the people attending this and have a nice long chat with everyone. He made a real effort to remember everyone's name and why they were here. The pool is located in the middle of the hotel. Right out in the open. Which made playing with the kids in the water a little uncomfortable. Plus you can hear people in the pool from our room. They have pool towels available and handy to cover up if chilly. The breakfast is in the restaurant of the hotel. They have the food ready to grab and enjoy. The parking is underground. Which is nice for any one staying during the winter months. You just use your room keycard to access it. And they have an elevator to the main floor.

    « Nice hotel, bad area »

    Nice hotel with an impressive atrium. The pool was good, the gym was good, the room was good, it was all very nice. Even the breakfast (included) was good. The neigbourhood is not the best in Calgary but its close to Foothills hospital. I would recommend the underground parking for sure. And if you are staying on a Saturday night and want to sleep in, make sure to ask to be as far as possible from the conference room on the first floor....some kind of church meet there and they have their music LOUD (didnt bother me as I was on the 5th floor but something to watch for).

    « Wedding in Calgary »

    Stayed only one night, in town for a wedding. Hotel was nice enough, nothing special. Woken up at about 2am by our drunken neighbors banging on their door. Seemed like a domestic dispute. Lasted about 10 minutes. **They charge a DMF (destination marketing fee) of 3%. This IS a voluntary fee and you DO NOT have to pay it. They did remove it from our bill when we checked out.

    « Comfortable room »

    It was a nice spacious comfortable room with fridge and microwave. The lady at check-in was very friendly and gave us free underground parking. My GPS couldn't find it because the address is Crowchild Trail not the service road that it is located on. For some reason the cleaning staff threw away the hand soap and didn't leave a replacement, There was no Kleenex for the last two days.

    « Amazing "Sleeper" Best Western! »

    This Hotel is located in Hotel Village. I stay at a lot of Best Westerns In Calgary. I only chose this location as it was closest to an event I was attending Sep.28.2016 @ the jubilee Auditorium. And let me say: WOW! What a sleeper style hotel. Way way way better then I was expecting. This property is really nice. And well kept. More deserving of a BW Premier Title then just basic BW title. Very new up to date modern decor. Entire building has a nice feel to it. Rooms built/wrap around/over look the restaurant bar & pool area, makes it so there's an interior/exterior balcony hallway/walking system very cool. As a longtime maintenance person for a hotel chain. I was very pleased with the condition of this property. The lights above our beds did not work (Room 990) but a very small issue and the only one experienced. The pool area does not have its own designated bathroom/change area as it's open to the building, and as a result the building carries the pool smell throughout. during the day I image the pool noise echoing might get loud and would recommend a room on a higher floor. The front Desk staff @ check in were very friendly and efficient. The bar was nice and our server great at her job, even though she was triple tasking with restaurant and order deliveries. The complimentary BW breakfast was the best I've had at any best western location, the potatoes' were amazing and they had do it yourself waffles that were huge! & happened to have BW logo's in the shape of hearts on them! I feel Small things like that count big time. Shout out to Linda Ife the front office manager! She was very nice & helpful upon checkout and has a great GSA team working the front end! Out of the 5 best Western Locations I've personally tried in Calgary, this is my new favourite. Would recommend to anyone and will definitely be staying here again in the future! Keep it up BW Village Park Inn!

    « Lousy Staff »

    Front desk and restaurant staff were unfriendly and insufficiently staffed,long wait at check in check out and in restaurant, long waits for elevators only 2 for a hotel this size and slow. Room was very good and bed comforatable.

    « Best place I have stayed in quite awhile »

    I stayed here recently for two full weeks. The hospitality of the staff working there from the wonderful front desk attendants to the gals serving in the restaurant and the cleaning staff was unsurpassed. They are friendly courteous, quick to act when you need them and full of lots of smiles. I was originally a bit concerned that because it was located in the Motel Village which is an order set of motels and hotels, that I may not be quite as new or comfortable as I am used to. Boy was I wrong! This place, though economical by my standards, was a newly renovated beautiful place to stay with all the amenities and top of the line beds and linens. I stayed in one of the suites that has a large new shower instead of a tub and I liked it even better than a bath with a tub. Anything I seemed to have need of was supplied in quick time and the restaurant offers a wide variety of foods. The breakfast was amazing with everything a person usually eats at home, cold or hot. I saw one morning when about 100 plus people descended on the breakfast area all at once ( visiting sports teams) and although the kitchen was running overtime they fed everyone in record time. As the hot foods ran out they quickly refilled and still kept on smiling. If you go there the one thing you must try is the chef's soups. The minestrone is especially awesome. Will I go again .... if I get the chance I will. It is my new favourite place to stay other than the grandkids place.

    « Nice stay »

    My family and I stayed at the hotel for 4 nights. The room was clean and spacious. Our room had a refrigerator and a microwave which is great. They offer free breakfast: eggs, bacon/sausage/ham, potatoes. You can make your own waffle, there are pastries, toast, cereal. The only thing that bother me a bit was that the pool was out in the open- so in the morning you can hear kids all the way to the room on the other end, cause it tends to echo. Though we did not have any problems with noise during the night. There are also places to eat near by. Overall we had a nice stay.

    « All Good! »

    Excellent hotel...excellent rooms....excellent amenities. The gym was a bit slack but you can get by in a pinch. Not a fan of the best western scrambled eggs but again you can get by. Other than that this hotel was awesome!

    « One of the best hotel deals, ever. »

    I do a lot of travelling with my work. I have been all over Canada and the US and this is one of the best hotel deals I have ever had. I only booked this hotel because of its location and the price point was good, but I experienced a great hotel. The room was great, the breakfast was great, the parking was free, the internet worked perfectly and the room was clean. The next time I go to Calgary I will definately be staying at the Best Western Plus Village Park Inn.

    « Very quite and peaceful »

    It was so good to a Best Western motel in Calgary that was reasonable priced and they were friendly and helpful with every area of our stay. It was close to all the menus that we needed. It was very quite and peaceful place to hang our hat for the night.

    « Good stay at BW »

    This hotel was excellent. Our room was clean, bright and updated recently. The room was quiet and the bed was very comfortable. The included breakfast was a bit repetitive (we stayed 6 nights) but was always good. Lots of restaurants in the area and easy to get to downtown Calgary from there. Would definitely stay there again.

    « Excellent location, underground car garage, very clean, modern and spacious. »

    Located right off the #1. Free breakfast, excellent wi-fi, restaurant and bar, indoor pool. A large flat screen tv and leather couch in our room as well as a fridge and microwave. Would stay again if in the area. Happy travels.

    « Missed the details »

    At first glance this seems a nice place but the little things add up to make the stay frustrating. For example the parking in the underground lot: the spaces are way too small; you can't even open the car door. Luckily the place wasn't crowded that night. Also the alarm clock was so old that it didn't work. And no pens; again small things that just pissed me off for some reason.

    « Comfortable hotel with very helpful staff »

    Large spacious well equipped rooms, fantastic breakfast with many food choices. Carina at the front desk was very kind and helpful. Free underground parking with good security. Definitely would return here when next in Calgary.

    « Noisy hotel »

    Wouldn't recommend this hotel if you are looking to get any rest after 7 a.m. Has a central corridor and the noise from the pools is horrible in every room! Also, they rented out our room to another customer during the night. Had someone come into our room while we were sleeping. NOT a good expereince at all. Went to the front desk in the more as our cards wouldn't work and when I told them what happened they said "yeah, we heard about that...sorry" WHAT!!! Told the desk clerk about the pathetic response when we checked out the next day. Gave us a lousy 25% off. Not going back. True reflection of an establishment is how they handle situations when they make a mistake. Too bad.

    « Comfortable accommodations »

    We were here for only one night on our way through Calgary. Coming from Lethbridge we had some trouble finding it only because of street construction. It was very convenient when we left for Banff, The front desk people were very polite, nice and certainly helpful, as were the restaurant employees. The breakfast was a full breakfast buffet in a nice comfortable setting. Would use this hotel again.

    « One night stay »

    We stayed one night while passing through Calgary. Our suite was exceptional...huge main room with apartment size fridge, granite counter top bar area, huge bathroom with double sinks, two person soaker tub and jetted shower. Very clean and bed was very comfortable. Would be great for a gathering easily accommodating a dozen people. Superb!

    « Very comfortable »

    A very central location. A very nice complimentary breakfast served from 7-10 am. Beds were very comfortable and clean. Shower pressure was a bit lacking. Rooms were very quiet and dark at night. I would come back here.

    « Girls' night »

    My high school friend from Saskatchewan, who now lives in the Yukon, was on her way "home" to visit her Mom. We met here at my favorite Calgary "home away from home". We had the most wonderful visit and laughed and talked until 3 am! The staff was so accommodating and helpful. The food was great and those beds are so comfortable! It was so much fun I booked a second night with another friend who I hadn't seen for ages! We were pleasantly surprised to discover we were invited to the weekly wine and appetizer event! Also, we made it to the wonderful included breakfast. We also stay here whenever family members are in the Foothills Hospital.

    « New favourite place to stay by the Foothills Hospital »

    I found this gem on my last trip to Calgary. Newly updated interior of main areas and guest rooms are beautiful. Staff were very helpful. Breakfast buffet has many options and enough seating for large numbers of guests at one time. Being so close to the stadium or Foothills hospital makes the hotel very handy. I will stay again.

    « Classic Hotel »

    This hotel is embodiment of class and comfort, we stayed three night in this hotel, the room were cozy and clean, with modern amenities. The staff were very friendly and helpful. They offer free buffet breakfast and the restaurant is large and very clean. However, the pool and hot tub is too small as it is situated in between the second floor, often time noisy and crowded. They have a pay parking and complementary parking often time there is no space in the complementary parking lot. This hotel is in a class of his own you won't regret lounging here.

    « nice hotel in good location »

    This is a nice hotel, clean and comfortable...the hotel was very busy during our stay so was a bit noisy. The Hot breakfast was good but they did not have enough staff to clear tables and restock food. The Hot tub had too much chlorine and it burnt your eyes. Rooms had small fridge, microwave and beds are comfortable. Would be nice if pool didn't open till 9am as is very noisey

    « Good Hotel near McMahon Stadium and Highway 1 »

    We stayed one night in this hotel. It was quiet and the rooms were clean and modern. The rooms are on various levels surrounding an open area to the pool, restaurant, etc. It was very quiet. Breakfast was included - it was a standard type of serve yourself buffet that was no better or worse than anywhere else including eggs, sausage, potatoes, cereal, toast and pastries, yogurt, waffles, etc. I would stay here again, it's really very nice.

    « Excellent Business Hotel »

    The staff was very helpful and pleasant. The décor of the hotel is very nice, with a modern upper class vibe. The rooms were nicely appointed and very comfortable. Breakfast was good for a buffet style, hotel breakfast. The only issue is the pool was a little loud but it closes at 10pm so it was no big deal. Nice lounge. Overall a very good hotel for business or pleasure in Calgary.

    « Very helpful for our wedding »

    We held our wedding here in July 2016, and were very happy with everything, especially how helpful the event staff were with our requests. We originally planned to only hold our reception here, but weather on the day of the wedding forced us indoors, and the hotel was very accommodating and helpful, setting us up in an extra room for the ceremony. They let us use an area for photographs, were flexible as to the start time of our meal, and did everything they could to help make the day easy and happy. The in-house Courtyard restaurant provided our meal and did an excellent job. The food was good, the chocolate cake was incredible, and every course arrived in a timely manner. All of our guests stayed at the hotel for several nights as well, and everyone enjoyed it. Overall we were very happy and appreciative, and would recommend the Best Western Village Park Inn for anyone looking to host an event.

    « Comfy place to rest while travelling »

    Travelling to Vancouver from Edmonton, I had to break my journey as I was not feeling good and needed some rest. Checked in at the Best Western Village Park Inn, located conveniently mere meters away from the TransCanada Highway 1. I was greeted much warmly by a cheerful front desk staff member, Carlina. She processed my reservation and meticulously explained what's included and what's not, directions for the parking etc. A pleasant experience. She was exceptionally competent and conscientious. Because of my "frequent-guest-status" at their sister properties Westin, etc. I was upgraded to a very comfy room on the 5th floor with a king-sized bed, microwave oven, fridge, etc. Parking underground was a breeze. Breakfast was excellent, with hot offering like eggs, assorted meats, potatoes, waffles etc. The hotel is 100% smoke free which helped me have a good night sleep.

    « Two night stay in Calgary »

    Haven't stayed here for a few years but will definitely be back. The room was great, bed was so comfortable, staff were very pleasant and helpful. Didn't use the pool due to time but it looked very inviting. Breakfast was fine though we did find both mornings, they ran out of butter and the muffins were a little dry. We did enjoy our overall experience.

    « Great location for a game »

    Love where everything you need is within one stop. Park & stay here for a game. It's perfect! Had a room facing the stadium with a balcony. Quiet inside the room too. L train within a block walk. Variety stores, restaurants & liquor store within 1 block too. Food was fine & breakfast had a great assortment of hot & cold items. I would stay here again. Downfall - staff in all depts not overly happy with new owner. Not sure why. Too much chat in front of customers. Underground parking needs to be brighter.

    « Questionable housekeeping »

    I've always found Best Westerns a hit or miss. While this one isn't a complete miss, it isn't a hit either. We only chose this hotel as we could use our air miles rewards to stay free and its proximity to McMahon Stadium. Location was awesome as we were able to walk to the game. Despite the open courtyard containing the pool, bar and restaurant, we weren't disturbed by the noise (even after the football game). What makes this hotel poor is the housekeeping. The housekeeping staff short changed us on towels everyday, "forgot" to leave a tub mat, extra roll of toilet paper, didn't replace the empty tissue or coffee supplies ... There is a lot of choice for the breakfast but if you like butter on your toast, it isn't offered every day.

    « Horrible Hotel »

    This hotel has the worse service and is the loudest hotel to stay at. When asking front desk to help tone noise down they are not too helpful. Room is dirty. Actually nasty. We are loyal BW clients with platinum membership and they put us in a crappie room. No appreciation for loyal members. We are currently staying at this hotel and have to use melatonin for myself and our children to sleep. Would love to leave but they will not reimburse our room for 3 nights stay. If you don't mind noise and crappie service this hotel is for you. I wouldn't recommend to my worse enemy.

    « Great place for family vacation »

    « Beware! Loud pool and blinds that don't close! »

    I'm currently staying at this hotel. We chose it because of the pool and location. The pool is located in the centre of the hotel, right outside of everyone's door. The noise from children playing and screaming in the pool echos through the entire building. The blinds in our room do not close and there is a light right outside our room shining in on our beds. The blind tracks stop and leave a gap of about four feet of open window in the middle of the window. Is this supposed to be decorative? Because I literally cannot change in my room if I don't want half of Calgary to see me naked, let alone SLEEP with a light shining in my window. I have had to use hangers with clips to keep the window dressings together and block the light partially. We are extremely loyal BW rewards members, we travel and stay with BW very often and I am extremely shocked at the design flaws in this building. I will be contacting BW directly about my concerns but thought the trip advisor community should know to stay clear of this hotel. Dark rooms and quiet are needed for a good night sleep. This hotel misses the mark completely.

    « Poor customer service »

    I tried calling more than 10 times prior to my reservation to ensure the two rooms I had booked were next to each other. I was put on hold every single time for a total of 2 hours on more than one day- when finally spoken to the rep was impolite and not friendly. I'm not usually one to complain but this was just such poor service, I was unimpressed especially since Best Western is known to be a popular, good hotel chain. Count on nice clean rooms but poor customer service. They are receiving almost $1000 from my stay at their hotel- I was hoping the least I could expect was polite service.

    5
    « Quite the place! »

    In our long western road trip, this hotel was decidedly the fanciest we stayed in (though not actually the most expensive! I'm looking at you, Drumheller.) Glass-walled elevators, open interior, full sized dining and lounge, underground parking... so much more than most roadside motel/hotels offer. Since the scale was bigger, there was more noise and people (especially one night at the pool outside our room, where a bunch of rowdy guys were hooting and howling), but for the most part it was not a problem. It has a nice location close to some thoroughfares; Big T's is right down the street. The breakfast was excellent and extensive - again, a cut above our other hotels. If we come back to Calgary, I would definitely come here for the great value.

    « Good hotel close to the university »

    I stayed there for two weeks for my U of C summer residency. It's a 15 min. easy walk to University. The hotel is clean and comfortable, the size of the room and the wifi access were very useful for someone like me who spent all her time in the room working, as was the business center. The hotel restaurant is very nice, I had dinner there every day and the included breakfast is great. The staff is very friendly an efficient. The only downside for me but i guess others would consider it an advantage is the indoors pool that's very noisy and is open until 22:00 pm. Still, most of the normal guests enjoyed it I guess. All in all a good experience, I guess I'll stay there again next summer:)If you are not a student though and want to see the city and other places you should get a car - there's nothing to do in the vicinity - there's a train station close by.

    « Nice and convenient place to stay »

    It is close to C-Train station and some nice restaurants (such as The Nick's and Big T BBQ). It has its own restaurant too, where reasonably-priced good food is offered. It provides free breakfast too. Room service is fast and the staff members are friendly and helpful.

    « There are other hotels in the area.... »

    First of all if you call the front desk, they won't answer! I called four times, letting it ring until I was disconnected. After 10 minutes of calling I got an answer. I said I was calling for 10 minutes, she said she was busy. Nice customer service. Housekeeping did not empty the garbage, replace the facecloths, gave us only two towels, no shampoo or conditioner, no plastic cups, ice bucket was not cleaned or plastic bag replaced. Had to call down to get towels etc. This is basic stuff, housekeeping should be doing their job. On the website it clearly states the pool is adults only from 9:00 pm to 10:00 pm yet when I call the front desk to inquire about this because there are kids SCREAMING in there at 9:45 the girl at the front desk argues with me that is not their policy and kids are allowed in there after 9:00 pm. I was on the fourth floor at the opposite end of the hotel as the pool - it was loud! Brutal stay. I will not be back and never recommend this hotel. There are many in the area, so choices are plenty. Also, we found pieces of toys under the bed from a previous guest. The cleanliness of the bathroom was also questionable.

    My wife and I stayed here at the end of our tour of the Rockies prior to returning to London. We were very pleased with the modern, clean, attractive rooms, the underground parking, the friendly greeting in the lobby, and we love the big, open common area in the centre of the hotel. Breakfast was included which was much appreciated. The location was convenient for us for driving to the airport the next morning. We would stay again on a return visit.

    Front desk service was fine. A little weird to see the pool in the middle of the hotel, but it didn't affect us noise wise. Food was fine at the restaurant and it was open to a reasonable hour. The rooms were clean, updated and the beds were fine. The only niggle was the a/c unit didn't have a low setting that wasn't gale force, and it was noisy. Breakfast was excellent for a buffet and the dining room space was generous. I would stay there again without blinking an eye.

    We would stay here again. Excellent service from the front desk to the complementary breakfast to the care of the room. Near the C-Train so never had to take car from underground, secure parking lot. Perhaps the Sunday brunch was a bit overcrowded and if they had opened up the bar for guest there would have been lots of room. Other than that, it was a great place to stay.

    « Excellent, just a little noisy! »

    The rooms and decor were very nice. You can tell it was recently renovated. They had a crib set up for us in our room, as per our reservation request. The breakfast buffet was really good & busy, and they were very good at keeping it stocked and clean. The only issue we had was the noise. The restaurant & pool are centrally located and the noise shot straight up into the room. We woke up to the sound of clanking plates both days. We booked online and paid with airmiles and found it to be a very quick and easy process.

    Most important things in any hotel are cleanliness and comfortable beds. Beds were fine, cleanliness was not there. A gross amount of hair throughout the bathroom. Breakfast was below average, mostly cereals and breads. Not much for choice for anyone with gluten sensitivities or allergies. Hugh humidity in the rooms. No way to open windows or otherwise vent humidity out of rooms. At check out, was not asked how my stay was. Payment was taken and that was that. Won't return.

    70's hotel, recently renovated with dark modern finishes, close to Foothills Hospital and University. Rooms open onto an atrium and are above the pool and restaurant. Sound carries considerably in the evening so consider a room on an upper floor. Our room was clean and the bed was comfy. Amenities: free WIFI, room fridge, and a breakfast buffet which was the caliber one would expect for a roadside hotel. Liked the secure underground parking, which was free with rewards program membership.

    An outstanding place to stay. It's not cheap, esp considering the extra taxes. But we were there for 6 days and we loved the entire place, right down to the room doors that stay open so that you could move a luggage cart through them easily. Staff was outstanding. Excellent bar and grill, breakfast which was included was excellent, and restaurant very good as well. Minor complaints: wine was overpriced, or at least they should have less expensive wines available. We were surprised at the lack of proper venting in the bathroom -- mirror steamed up with showers - needs a power vent. Parking inside is good.

    We held a business meeting here, and several of us stayed in the hotel for 2 nights. The first night we relaxed with drinks and a casual dinner at Rockies. Nice menu, generous portions. Each morning we enjoyed a delicious full breakfast bar in the Courtyard Restaurant. Our meeting facilities were very nice. We got anything extra we needed very promptly. Service is great; no complaints. Pool is located in the central courtyard, and there were some people there that we could hear in our room after 9:00. Pool closes at 10:00 though.

    « Avoid as there is limited service »

    Came here for a 4 night stay. The hotel is a run down, the furniture, sheets, pillows, etc., are not in great shape. I called the front desk multiple times and they did not answer. The food at breakfast and supper were terrible. The service was beyond slow with our party asking multiple times for menus, services, the bill, etc. Couldn't find a bottle or can of diet coke or pepsi anywhere in the place, The worst parts however are that the pillows are very uncomfortable and the rooms are built around a 5 story atrium. It looks nice but every sound travels up to every door and room from 6 am to midnight and beyond. I am confused about why any architect would build a hotel this way as the noise was terrible? The room was cold and when I turned the heat up , the fan was super noisy. Can't sleep and the food and service suck.

    This hotel was recommended to us by a friend and a friend of the friend. I traveled with my daughter and this was the safest feeling hotel we have stayed in. The rooms surround an open indoor coutyard (5 stories high) that houses the restaurant, lounge and swimming pool/sauna. The elevators also face the courtyard and are glass on the outside, so you can see into the courtyard. Also the stairs to the upper levels are also an open concept spiral design also within the courtyard. No long dark hallways, closed-in stairwells or confined feeling elevators. A very safe feeling, we found, traveling as females. The breakfast is included and is amazing. Massive fresh fruit tray with everything imaginable, scrambled eggs, bacon, sausages, yogurt, vegetables.... a step up for sure compared to other comparable hotels offering breakfast included. Also coffee/tea, etc. is served to your table. They also offer an amazing Sunday buffet (not included in room rate). The location is good. It is easy to get into the city centre via the CTrain (communter train). The Banff Trail station is very close. We would stay here again.

    We paid a return visit to this hotel recently and upon arrival I discovered, to my embarrassment, that I had mistakenly booked another Best Western instead of my intended stopover. No problem. The very friendly and efficient front desk people simply got on the phone and straightened out my faulty reservation with the other hotel and in minutes we were set for a pleasant stay among the friendly folks who staff this hotel. On our return from British Columbia the following week we once again stayed at the same hotel and had a great stay. The staff of this hotel will go the distance to make your stopover enjoyable. What better recommendation can I offer?

    Recently we had to tavel to Calgary as a family member was in hospital and not expected to live. We travel for 10 straight hours and then went directly to the hospital. Leaving their at night, totally exhausted and not knowing where to stay we lucked out on this fabulous hotel. From the minute we walked in the door, they treated us with the greatest kindness and understanding. There was nothing they would not do to make our stay as easy as possible. Not knowing how many days we were going to be there, we checked out everyday and then back in every night for 3 nights. They managed to get us the same room for 3 nights in a row and we were very appreciative of this. It was wonderful to come back each night after spending the whole day at the hospital and be so well treated with such concern. From the front desk staff to the lovely waitresses in the lounge, we thank you so very much. It was a blessing to be able to come back each night to our retreat. Again thank you so much, I cannot think of another hotel where we were treated so very kindly.

    « Mother's Day Brunch- Never again! »

    Our family used to go here for Sunday brunch on special occasions yearly but for whatever reason haven't been there for approximately 10 years. We decided to take our mom there for Mother's Day as it was close and we had good, although vague, memories of it! I can assure you I will not being going back! The selection was alright, and the price- at $26 per adult, seems average for Calgary. Where it seemed to unravel was the service and the payment at the end. Despite waiting for a bill, I finally had to flag someone down and ask if we paid at the front. I was told yes and the employee asked if I was ready to pay. I started to follow her, however once at the front desk she disappeared. There was a lengthy lineup waiting to be seated, and I was unsure if I was supposed to wait in that or if she was coming back with a handheld debit machine. She reappeared a few minutes later, and started seating some people so I went and waited in line. The line was complete chaos and I waited for approximately 10 minutes before I could pay- long enough that she forgot that I was even paying, not waiting to be seated. The machine neglected to ask for a tip, so I mentioned this to the employee. She immediately stated "oh the tip is built in". I then looked at my bill and a 18% 'service charge' had already been added. I cannot begin to describe how offensive I find that. I understand that most places have a policy for large parties and a minimum tip, but we were a party of 5. I also would've never tipped more than 15% as the service was lackluster- pretty sad considering all they had to do was keep our coffee filled and eventually take away our plates. I know there are much better brunch places in town, with much better service. Not only that, but you still have the right to exercise your judgment of tip amount and know if can be reflective of the service. .

    « Nice Place if you Don't Use the Pool. »

    My son and I came to Calgary for the RU Fast Speed skating tournament held at the Olympic Oval located at the University. The hotel is only ten minutes away from the venue. Walking into the hotel you can tell the hotel has had a recent renovation, though the elevator needed some upgrading as well as it clinked and clanged. Since my husband had a Best Western Card for travelling we were given underground parking for free which was nice. The room had been completely gutted and redone, not just the carpet and the wallpaper but looked like new ceiling, new thermostat and a new room heater. I hate staying at hotels were they gut everything but leave the noisy heater to keep you awake at night. The beds were nice and soft and loved all the pillows too! Breakfast at the Court Yard Restaurant was included and started at 6:30am, there were waffles, a large variety of fruit and scrambled eggs, sausage and bacon and potatoes; along with cereals and pastries,.breakfast was really good. Service was excellent at breakfast. Dinner at the restaurant was completely opposite. Two families with a total of four children came back to the restaurant after a day of races. Service was terrible, the waitress never came back to ask if we wanted to refresh our beverages, I received my salad first, and then we waited 25 minutes for our meals which came luke warm. The next time we saw our waitress was when she came to ask us how we wanted to divide up the cheque. Not impressed, service definitely needs to be improved on. The only other thing I was not happy about was the pool area. Friday night we arrived, the hot tub was closed for repairs. The water in the pool was freezing. No child stayed more than a few minutes in the pool. The next day the hot tub was opened temporarily, but the other families children got blue paint or glue, whatever was on the hot tub on their bathing suits. The family complained, and again the hot tub was closed again. When travelling with children, the pool is most important, and the hotel needs to make sure that it is operational and usable (not freezing). If I would have known this earlier, I would have found another hotel with a pool, as there are quite a few to choose from in this area. Overall our stay was quiet, and nice. It's a great place to stay if you don't plan on using the amenities offered.

    The only problem we had, is that the atrium where breakfast is served is in a wide open area below. You can hear dishes clanging and people talking before 6:30. Maybe a higher floor would help!? It also drives me nuts when there is a 'charge' for parking where you need to sleep. That would be a the reason I DON'T choose a hotel. It is the principle of the thing to me, has nothing to do with the money.

There is a nice pool and hot tub (can be noisy with the children but not distracting). Nice bar where we can had a drink and supper (pasta was really good!). The free breakfast was pretty good, enough choice for my husband and I. Staff could be a bit more cheerful but did a great job of getting coffee's and juices, and making sure there was sufficient hot and cold foods available.

    Hotel has been nicely renovated throughout and room was comfortable and had everything we needed. Breakfast is very nice, the whole family enjoyed it. Great value for the money and the hotel is situated well for our needs.

    « Pleasantly Surprised! »

    This hotel looks really old and and not welcoming when you drive up and the location isn't great. But, inside is completely different! The rooms run along the outside of the interior of the hotel and there is a courtyard in the middle where the pool, bar and restaurant are. Rooms have all been updated and are nicely appointed, modern, and clean. Staff was very friendly and accommodating, underground parking was nice. There are not a whole lot of hotels in northwest Calgary and if we had to stay in that quadrant again, would definitely consider staying here.

    « Celebrated our 15th weddiing anniversary on the weekend »

    It was a night to remember. Me and my husband are very happy we picked the Best Western Village Park Inn. All their team are very accommodating and exceeded our expectations. Will definitely recommend to others who are looking for a great place to celebrate their special occasion. The banquet assistant manager "Karine" was superb.

    « Great location for Hospital reasons »

    This is a very comfortable hotel with good amenities. The restaurant serves good food and when having to go to the hospital it is very easy to get to and 5-10 minutes away. I would recommend this property.

    « Near Foothills »

    The room we stayed in has been recently renovated. Very nice touches, like a safe in the room, and clean TV remote in a bag. Large mounted TV was easy to see. I can easily get into the shower, though it is narrow, and this room was also close to the restaurant and elevator. I enjoyed the thick beds, and high tables. There was nicely placed plug-ins for the CPAP machines, and space to set the machines up. Breakfast was free with the room, now people you do get a slip of paper when you seat down, this is not a bill or to get extra tips, but it is a way to account for the breakfast to a room. From the look of it it is the best way to do it. They have a great underground parking, the doors were easy from me to get through to the underground, I move slow with a walker. I found the staff to be friendly and helpful. There was no noise that I heard in my room. The place was very clean. I enjoyed my stay and intend to go back.

    « Beautiful Facility »

    This hotel is either a recent reno or a new construction. We had not come across it in the past when searching for accommodation in Calgary. We will certainly stay here again! It is close to the university/hospital as well as restaurants and the TransCanada Hwy. Pleasant staff and very comfortable rooms. Of note is the 5-floor atrium, making each room open onto a pool-side balcony. Breakfast starts at 6:30, later than usual.

    « Great place to stay near Foothills Hospital »

    Clean rooms and hotel overall. Great food, buffet breakfast is full, big, lots of choices and included with room fee. Price was reasonable $116 plus taxes, DMF, etc fees. Great food for supper in the restaurant/bar. Best homemade hamburger and my husband's steak was very good too. A bit pricey $70 but then I had 2 lovely glasses of wine with supper. Beds, bedding, toiletries very nice. The TV remote is cleaned and put in a little sack. Nice touch.

    « My stay at best western in Calgary »

    We enjoyed our stay . My husband was a 5 minute walk from his course and our daughter could pick me up and we spent a full day Christmas shopping. The second day of the course and our checkout was handled by express checkout so I needed to do nothing because I thought my husband had already taken care of it. Things worked out in the end. We really enjoyed our stayed,everything was very comfortable.

    « Nice hotel »

    Stayed here for a conference being held at the hotel. Good hotel near the University. The block it is on has a cluster of several hotels. I like the front desk service were good. The furniture in the room was modern, everything was clean. I was surprised by the buffet breakfast, I was expecting typical fair for an included continent breakfast, this was much better, nice fresh fruit, and hot dishes. C-train is a short walk away, it would be good if they improved the access but otherwise ok. I usually stay downtown when in Calgary, with c-train access I would reconsider staying here.

    « High quality hotel »

    I have positive impressions of this hotel. The room was very tidy and appealing, also rather spacious. It was a pleasure to stay there. There is a swimming pool just inside the hotel. Unfortunately I didn't have time to swim there, but it looked cool! The breakfast (buffet) was included, and it was very nice. The menu was simple, but there was enough choice and the food items were very good, so I was also happy with that one :) The hotel is located in an industrial area, so there isn't that much to see. But there are a couple of nice parks, and you can also take a train that will bring you to the city centre in some 15 minutes, I think.

    « Great location close to McMahon stadium for game day »

    Location is great for easy access to the McMahon Stadium if you're into Stamps games.I'm not a fan of the hotel layout - rooms arranged along a long open corridor which overlooks what would be a courtyard in an office block, but is the dining room. Almost dormitory-like in its layout. There really isn't much of a view here - you're either facing the highway, the parking lot or an office block, so if you're into views, this is not where you want to be. However, other than these, our stay was pleasant. Check in and check out were quick and easy. Breakfast was the best part of this stay. It was delicious and plentiful. Lots of variety in what was available. Wifi was good enough and was free. Altogether not a bad stay.

    « Very Poor stay at a Best Western »

    Poor access to city transit (C-Train). If you have a large vehicle and under ground parking is not available, and you have no rear access to hotel. Only one way in and out. Poor front line service. A lot of noise from breakfast room to hotel room in am. No security in the night, alot of young guys hanging around front of hotel looking through planters etc. Made us feel that the vehicle may not be safe outside. We are Diamond members and this is the worst Best Western we have ever stayed at.

    « Looking forward to returning here »

    Was in town with my wife and daughter for a concert. The hotel is well located near the University of Calgary. The check-in process was welcoming and efficient, so too was checking out. It's great to have the convenience of a lounge, restaurant and good to know the great conferencing opportunities. I forgot my bathing suit tho! Next time...!

    « Not bad hotel in a convenient location »

    This hotel is really convenient for Banff and the Rockies. It is also ideal to get to the airport and downtown. The hotel has been refurbished and is a funky design. The rooms are adequate and clean. We had an awful experience having lunch in the restaurant. The waitress was shocking and rude. She was impatient with my elderly parents and would substitute a soap that was more appropriate for a health issue and told my young son he couldn't have garlic bread that came with his pasta! I could go on but the picture should be clear. The lunch was adequate. In fairness, I shared with the manager our experiences with the waitress (only one, the second one was helpful and friendly). The manager was also helpful and refunded some of the meal and room rate. We weren't after the discount but simply wanted to highlight our concerns. That experience overshadowed our stay and breakfast the next day felt uncomfortable. It was just one staff member who tarnished the stay which was otherwise fine. The pool was a perfect temperature and we enjoyed the hot tub.

    « Good clean hotel at reasonable cost »

    We have stayed on a number of occasions. Good parting underground, clean pool for the kids, and excellent breakfast for the money spent. Would recommend for an evening out or a weekend away with the kids. Rooms updated and central location. Close to the children's hospital and have always been accommodating. Would recommend !

Very good beds. Lots of towels and toiletries. Not sure about noise as hotel not busy. My head hit the very comfortable pillow and I was out. Coffee machine is single cup. Fridge and microwave.

    « Thanksgiving Weekend »

    Picked this hotel for location to daughter's university, pool and buffet breakfast. Very easy to get to downtown and freeway. Breakfast buffet was wonderful and staff were friendly. Pool and hot tub were very clean. Only thing I would do different would be to request a room on the opposite side of the pool as it was noisy with kids on our last night. Will stay here again.

    « Far too much noise »

    On Friday and Saturday there were approximately 12 ( no I'm not exaggerating) kids around 6 - 10 years of age running amok throughout the hotel. The noise was unbearable. While I primarily blame the parents, the hotel staff could have done more to curb the noise. This hotel is an open concept and we couldn't even sit in the bar and enjoy a quiet drink, the noise was that bad !!!!!!!!

Close to Foothills hospital & they have a special rate for those spending time at the hospital.

    Again--a most pleasant stay--clean--quiet-even though there was a wedding on the Saturday night of our stay. Restaurant has a great steak dinner, and very pleasant wait staff. the front desk staff was welcoming and pleasant as usual. this is a regular place for us to stay--close to the hospital where we needed to be and close to main roads for easy access to and from shopping areas.
