    i wasn't in the hotel much but when i came back from being at otafest the whirlpool was nice to relax in and the bed was excellent to sleep in one of the best hotels i have been to if anything else the hot breakfast is well worth it

    « Decent hotel, and decent price »

    Nothing too fancy, but it offered good service, friendly staff, decent rooms and even a pool and fitness area for a fair price. It's close to downtown, but wasn't a noisy stay by any means. I'd definitely stay again.

    We enjoyed our stay. Hotel was quiet, clean, and comfortable. Staff we professional and helpful. Breakfast was good - pancakes or waffles, eggs & meat, etc. Excellent access to/from Repsol Centre for group event. Pool was great and clean and included a small wading pool for small children. Internet was a bit slow. Overall very good.

    « Disappointing and scary »

    Did not feel safe as the big guy at the front desk asked strange questions as if he was casing us to determine when we'd be in our room. We felt that we had to take all our valuables out with us in the evening. Room and hotel are old (80's) ish and icky. Rooms at the back of the hotel are noisy because of trains passing every 10minutes.

    « Enjoyed our stay »

    This hotel was clean and quiet, and had very good staff. Slept well, enjoyed the pool/hottub and the breakfast was very good. Free hotel breakfasts can be hit or miss, well this one is a hit. Food replenished frequently, hot oatmeal or cream of wheat (not instant) waffles, eggs, sausages, potatoes, bagels, breads, cereals, fruit, juices and more. Location was excellent for what we needed, would stay again without hesitation!

    « So disappointing »

    My husband and I decided to go for a romantic night away and we were met with the jacuzzi tub plug not working so we couldn't use it at all, hardly any amenities (our fault for not checking but we at least expected in room movies) when we reported the tub not working in the morning, we were told to call back on Monday because there was nothing the staff could do about it.

    « Excellent stay great staff »

    We only stayed overnight, but the weather was so frightening and upon walking in, my young daughter and myself received a warm smile and welcoming attitude from the desk clerk hotel associate called Dan. He continued to go far beyond the call of duty. Room quiet and clean ... everything from our first step to check out it was wonderful!!!

    « Quiet sleep between Macleod Trail and CTrain »

    Excellent front desk service who quickly got me into my room. We were in a king room and it was very spacious. One in convince was because the open bathroom door blocked the room door, the bathroom door had a closure. Could of be remedied during construction with a sliding door. The hotel was very clean Breakfast was fresh and the breakfast area was kept tidy.

    « Basic No Frills Stay »

    The hotel is a basic hotel for the passer through. The breakfast is hot, fresh and there is not shortage of food or options although I may recommend another garbage can for easier access when the breakfast room is busy. The rooms are a good size but the bathrooms could use a little love and the cleaning could use a bit of attention to detail (I wouldn't have allowed my dog to sleep on the chairs provided in the room...they were stained, "crusty" and overall disgusting). The best part of the hotel is the staff at the front desk. The one gentleman I spoke with on a few occasions was incredibly friendly and helpful.

    « Best Western stay »

    Hotel was ok. Not as nice as new upgraded ones but was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was not the greatest. Some pastry was old and the berries still frozen so stopped trying the food after that. Overall was a good stay

    « Great location and Excellent Customer Service »

    I stay at this hotel frequently when travelling to Calgary on business. The front desk staff are extremely accommodating and always offer a smile and a warm greeting. So nice to feel so welcome when travelling on business. Rooms are clean, beds are comfy, and is a great value and location for the rate. Very close to downtown and Stampede Park. C-Train station is a close walk.

    « Very nice, convenient location »

    I liked this hotel as it was a great location for going to a Calgary Flames game at the Saddledome. It was also convenient to shopping centers and downtown. The bed was super comfortable. The room was clean. Not the best view, but it suited our puposes wonderfully. Staff was very helpful.

    Our stay in this hotel was very good. The room was very clean and nicely laid out. We were only there for two nights. The room was nicely made up when we came back to the room after conducting our business. The breakfast was very good, but the coffee was too weak. lol

    « With better shower this would be an excellent place to stay in Calgary?. »

    Early October 2017 we stayed 2 nights in an Executive room with king-size bed. The room is very spacious with very good lighting. There is a coffee machine, microwave and fridge. The bed is very comfortable but the shower is very disappointing. There is very good, free Wi-Fi. The hotel has free parking and a laundry room (CAD 2,25 per load). Very friendly staff at the reception. Breakfast buffet is good.

    « Awesome Staff »

    Dan and Mo went above and beyond to make our stay great. Dan saw what was needed and provided it without being asked, Mo had the equipment at a moments notice to help us with our stay at the hotel. The hotel is close to the center of Calgary, okay if you have a car, a 12 min walk to the LRT. Will stay here again on another trip to Calgary.

    « My time at your establishment »

    Hello, I was in town for a night for business as well as pleasure. Right from the process of booking the room over the phone to checking out after my stay I was impressed by the staff. I was arriving in town a little earlier than normal check in times and the staff was very accomodating in getting me into my room early . My room was clean and pleasantly decorated. The shining point to my stay was the counter staff for sure. Very professional, courteous and helpful. The host that booked me in was the same as for my check out. He was perfectly attentive to my needs, efficient and thorough. He also directed our conversation at check in to find out what my plans were during my stay in calgary and was very knowledgable as to some highlights for entertainment and places to eat. He was extremely pleasant to deal withand deservess praise for his efforts to represent your brand.

    « Recommend staying here »

    ...especially if you want to be the services and advantages of downtown Calgary without the downtown prices. The hotel was conveniently located for exit from Macleod Drive as well as walking to public transit for ease of travel to and from downtown. Everything about the room and the full, hot breakfast met our expectations. I'm a very light sleeper and heard the trail rushing by throughout the night, so if you're like me, be advised and ask for a west-side room. Thanks to a desk-staff recommendation, we ate at a nearby Korean restaurant one night--a good choice. We will probably reserve a stay here the next time we have business in downtown Calgary..

    « Comfortable stay, great location »

    We've never been dissatisfied when staying at a Best Western Plus. Overall our room was comfortable, clean, and spacious. The staff was friendly and amendable. They had a great serve yourself breakfast (including hot porridge, and both waffle and pancake griddles). We had a slight nitpick which was dealt with immediately. The location was ideal with a nearby mall (Chinook) and movie theatre to the south of us, a great little Mexican Restaurant nearby, and downtown just 5 minutes north of us. My wife and I would gladly stay there again.

    « Fantastic Service and Unbeatable Price »

    The hotel had absolutely superb service. The attitude of hotel staff was friendly, approachable, and always willing to help. There are great facilities on-site and nearby. This was all for less than $100 CAD a night, which is pretty much unbeatable these days. There is a transit station behind the hotel, but I couldn't hear anything going by throughout the day/night while inside.

    « Our Experience »

    The hotel was very neat; the people at the front desk were extremely helpful. My only advice would be to install grab bars around the bathtub for safety of all travelers especially the senior citizens.

    « Breakfast! »

    We were in Calgary on Sept 13 and 14th. On the second morning my wife was disappointed that the breakfast buffet did not serve bacon. The wonderful lady cooking overheard and fried her up a plate of bacon. Made my wife's stay. Kudos to the staff! Thank you. Good hotel, wonderful breakfast.

    « Great two night stay »

    Great comfortable hotel, with excellent friendly staff. Comfortable bed and great free breakfast included. Very close to Saddledome, where we were attending a concert and staff gave us helpful directions. Weather was good so able to walk down to it and back as only 20 minutes away. Easy parking, and breakfast had some great hot and cold choices and all hot dishes kept to a good temperature. The pancake/waffle machines were great. Only one downside were the pillows, too soft. One was not enough and 2 felt as if drowning in pillows. Décor good, although bathroom could do with a more modern upgrade. Would definitely recommend if want to be near Stampede grounds.

    « Comfortable and Clean Stay! »

    We stayed at Best Western for a weekend birthday getaway! We chose the Jacuzzi suite so we could relax. The room was very clean and comfortable. Staff were always there to help and were extremely friendly and had a positive energy. Free breakfast on the weekends until 11am, and 10am on weekdays which is perfect for people who want to sleep in! Great and convenient location being so close to downtown!

    « Wonderful al arou d »

    The front end night staff is the best I've ever met! The gentleman we had was so friendly and accommodating he had no problems filling out requests in a timely manner. The room we had was cozy and had a fantastic pillow top mattress with a special pillow for me from the man downstairs. Aside from the in room toiletries seeming to be in need of an update, everything else was perfect! The free hot breakfast downstairs is also really wonderful to have to start with and they do it perfectly!

    As soon as my wife and I walked in the door we were greeted with a friendly smile, and a helpful staff. We're not too familiar with Calgary and they were happy to show us points of interest within the city. the rooms are comfortable and clean, the maid services are good, the continental breakfast was very good, good location, lots of amenities. There is a pool and hot tub. The rooms have a fridge, microwave and coffee maker, I would recommend this hotel.

    « DISTRESSING OVERNIGHT STAY »

    This was a very nice hotel. A bit expensive for one night. Bed was comfortable, room was a nice size, breakfast was a nice selection. My one complaint of our room & it was especially pertinent to me, was that our bathroom door had a closer on it!!! These are found on your room door that would lead to the hallway. This made the bathroom door extremely heavy to open. During the night, I was especially distressed by it. I have major back problems & this door only added to my pain. So much so, that I wasn't able to eat breakfast the next morning.

    « Great service »

    They were very friendly and had an excellent array of foods for breakfast. The only thing I'd change, is adding actual brown bread for toast. Aside from that, it was excellent. Also, when we arrived at midnight, they made sure the check in was quick so we could go straight to bed.

    « Nice hotel in a declining part of town »

    The service at the hotel was very good. The amenities are up to the usual good Best Western standard. The only drawback, which is not the fault of BW, is the rundown look of the area. Otherwise, inside the hotel everything is great.

    « Great staff. »

    The courteous staff make this hotel a great stay. The city needs to clean up the area across from the hotel but the hotel itself is very nice. The elevator could use an overhaul so that it would move faster but the staff were quick on the draw when it came to press the button to have it come down to pick you up if it was not waiting on the ground floor.

    « Great service, clean room! »

    A group of friends and I stayed here for one night, which the gentleman at check-in started off on a high note! We don't remember his name unfortunately, but he was very accommodating and professional, willing to answer any questions we had. The room was very spacious and clean with comfortable beds. The pool and continental breakfast is very convenient! I would definitely recommend the hotel and would stay here again!!

    « Good hotel but was let down by one member of staff! »

    We stayed here so we could attend the Calgary Stampede which is a 15 minute walk away or it is just a short walk to the train station which also takes you to the Stampede grounds. The rooms are standard and the hotel has a lovely indoor pool and hot tub which we all used each evening after long days down at the Stampede. The staff on the front desk were very helpful especially Dan however we had the most terrible experience with the girl working in the breakfast room (think her name was Victoria). We were finishing off our breakfast at 10.10am and she proceeded to tell us and another group of guests that breakfast finished at 10.00am and we shouldn't be there. As this was our last morning and after a few issues with her attitude on previous mornings, when she huffed when we asked for milk refills etc this was the last straw. Not prepared to accept her behaviour any longer I decided to reminder her that we were paying to stay in the hotel and as breakfast was included in the price I would be finishing my breakfast. She preceded to say she was not paid to work after 10am so we told her to take it up with Management not with the guests. After breakfast we went to the front desk and reported her behaviour to Dan. I hope Best Westerns Management dealt with this matter as I would hate to think any other guest would be spoken to in this way. As a family we travel a lot and have stayed in lots of hotels and have never been spoken to or treated so badly by a member of staff! There was no on site restaurant where you could purchase lunch or an evening meal although there is a Tim Horton's and a McDonald just a short walk down the road. The hotel was expensive for what we got and the room was a little cramped for 2 adults and 2 teenagers with luggage, think if doing it again we would go Airbnb.

    « Good Location access can be difficult going south on McLeod »

    The location is reasonably close to CLine (Light Rapid Transit) Also shopping and dining are also close. Staff are friendly and courteous. I enjoyed the pool and hot tub plus the in-room jaccuzi. The end.

    « Average »

    Our family stayed here last weekend and while the front lobby looks great the rooms need some work. I found our room outdated, dark and musty smelling. The pool is small but ok for kids to get in and past some down time. I found the breakfast very busy for the small area where it's located and they ran out of everything including utensils. It was great for a short stay but I'm not totally sure if we would stay there again.

    « Great experience overall! »

    I experienced no issue at all during all my stay. We enjoyed the pool on Friday night until it's closure, but the staff gave us an extra 15 minutes to enjoy it a little bit longer. It's relatively quiet on night time, so no disturbance. I will choose this hotel next time I go to the Stampede way over the ones downtown.

    This property has all you would expect from a 5 star hotel. Check in, room comfort, breakfast and fitness/pool are all the best anywhere. Close to downtown, the zoo, hospital, shopping, restaurants and easy access and great parking. We had to make and emergency hospital trip to Calgary and needed 2 rooms for me and my daughters. I phoned late in the day - rooms booked immediately and caring and concerned staff greeted us for our 2 day stay. Felt like home!!

    « Good/Rough Excellent save! »

    The overall stay was very comfortable although the eggs in the hot breakfast tasted like powdered eggs and the bacon not cooked too well. The fruit selection was good though. When the residents in the room above were walking hard at 2am, I called twice before it was rectified and the party was evicted the next day. A suite on the top floor was then made available to me and that night was restful. The staff member Dan, went out of his way to rectify things so my stay would be more pleasant. A for effort!!!

    « Five Star because of Excellent Staff and Service »

    We stayed three nights and would definitely stay here again the next time we are in Calgary! We requested a king room with fridge and microwave and were okay with paying the additional cost for these items. The room was very large and comfortable with a comfy couch and very comfortable bed. The pillows were a bit too rounded and stiff for me. We requested to stay on the side away from the busy street and the room was very quiet. All staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The breakfast had a great selection of items with scrabbled eggs and sausage one day, the next day was cheese omelets and sausage and Tuesdays are scrabbled eggs and bacon days. The waffle maker with the strawberry and whipped cream was very popular, as well. Very helpful and friendly breakfast staff. When we had any questions or a small problem with the air conditioner, Dan was super helpful and quick to resolve any problems or questions we had. Overall a VERY comfortable stay and the cost was very typical for this area, considering the quality of our stay. Thank you to Dan and other Staff for their excellent service.

    I like being within walking distance to the Saddledome. We used to stay at the elbow river inn which has been gone for quite a few years now. The best western is conveniently close and like staying there for events at the Saddledome. We were drinking and walked back to the hotel. It was great.

    « Good Location for Concerts/Stampeed »

    The hotel was located fairly close to the stampeed grounds and the Saddledome which makes it a good place to stay when attending concerts and stampeed. The pool was clean. Parking can be a bit of a challenge if the hotel is busy.

    « Ok hotel, good location »

    Stayed on business and chose this hotel because it was close to my course location. Turned out it was a great location overall. Just minutes from downtown and only a few minutes to the Chinook mall. Check in was great - no sure of the clerks name but he was very welcoming and funny. The room itself was large with a nice sized fridge, microwave, decent TV and comfy beds. Only things I didn't like were the lumpy pillows and the bathroom didn't seem to be vented very well even with the fan running. I used the hot tub a couple of nights which was nice and relaxing. I am dropping my rating due to the pool area looking like it needed some maintenance, however it was still relaxing. Breakfast in the morning was very good with healthy options like boiled eggs and fruit. I will stay at this location again if I come back for any more courses here.

    « Smoking Rooms »

    We were attending to some business plus a Grand childs graduation. It is rather hard to find a "nicer" hotel with smoking rooms and we were a bit apprehensive when we booked but I had gone through some of the other "trip advisor" comments and all seemed fine. The hotel was very nice and clean. The front desk folks were just GREAT , there was a free breakfast (included eggs, sausage, waffles or also a lighter one like bagels , fruit, cereal etc. When I needed extra coffee front desk provided all I needed even offered to get us real milk if we preferred for our coffee. The room was spotless, and a nice choice of pillows. A fridge and coffee maker also tea & coffee . The windows could actually be opened which we find is often not the case. Bed was comfortable and we were right handy to the Calgary Stampede Corral where ceremonies were held. I would surely go and stay here again, the rates were reasonable which is truly a help when one is a senior. and we each had an ashtray !! Great stay!! Thank you Also a lovely swimming pool

    We enjoyed our overnight stay in Calgary. The beds were great and very comfortable! Tv was very good! We were fortunate to be upgraded to a King suite. Very, very nice! Lots of room. The breakfast room was very crowded and hard to move around to get your food. But there was a good selection and the breakfast was included! We didn't get to take advantage of the pool or hot tub of which both looked very inviting.

    This was a good place to park your luggage because it is close to amenities and restaurants.

    Pros: This hotel is clean and functional with comfy beds - all you need for a quick sleep or stopover in Calgary. It has a great pool, wading pool and whirlpool as well. Also, the front desk staff was great and went above and beyond for us; thanks Teo! Cons: elevator is crazy slow; continental breakfast starts at 7am (whaaat!? All those poor people up and at 'em early...) Doors in the bathroom are heavy and on strong automatic closers which is weird, awkward and annoying.

    « Best Western - Macleod Trail, Calgary, AB »

    I stayed here with my wife and daughter for 3 nights. My band played at the music and arts festival at the Distortion club next door so this place was exceptionally convenient to get to and from the venue. The staff here are very friendly and exceptionally helpful with very few exceptions. The service actually kind of blew my wife and I away at times. We are used to a somewhat cool detachment that you seem to get from service industry staff which seems to be the norm these days however the staff at this hotel really came across as genuine and they really seemed to care about our needs. The only exception was the guy at check out whom I got a strange vibe from. He asked how our stay was as though it were an afterthought, as in, "by the way, how was your stay?"....Whatever, not a big deal. I can be a weird guy too. We stayed in a jacuzzi room as they did not have a double queen left when I had called 1.5 mos prior to reserve one. However, when we got there, the hotel really didn't seem to be at capacity. There weren't a lot of people there. Had a room opened up, it would've been nicer to have gotten what I had initially wanted. They did discount the room $20 a night but iit still was pricier than I was budgeting for. The room was spacious and clean. The bed was a little hard for my liking. We had a hide-a-bed pullout for our daughter and to be honest I think I would've rather slept on it. It was comfy. The air controls were easy to use for those who want to customize their environment. The jacuzzi tub really should've been cleaned better. The bathroom is not a tiny little narrow closet like some places which was nice. The biggest problem I had with this room though was the water pressure....or lack thereof. The toilet always seemed like it was about to overflow because it flushed so slow. The shower had an enormous shower head but the water basically came out at the speed of gravity. It was incredibly weak. I have long hair, so it took me a while to rinse it with this ridiculous shower head. The best part, by far, about our stay here was the complimentary breakfast. It was never super busy (as a matter of fact, the first day I found my wife and I alone in the breakfast area) and the food is great. The young lady looking after the breakfast was on top of it constantly keeping things stocked. It was awesome. You have your choices of making your own pancakes or waffles or toast, you have bagels and croissant, yogurt and granola or cereal and the hot dishes both days were eggs and sausage (one day egg patties with breakfast sausage, the next, scrambled with sausage rounds). Juice, coffee, tea, hot chocolate...you name the breakfast item and it was there and there was plenty of it. And tasty! Very impressed with this breakfast. To be honest, it would be a selling point for me to come back I enjoyed it so much. The only weird part of our stay here was the homeless man living in the trees outside the rear door. The first night after my wife and daughter had arrived, my wife was approached in her vehicle by said man who was looking into vehicles. We do a lot of people watching and sitting in our vehicle when we are staying away from home, so after I arrived, this incident didn't repeat itself as I sat outside with her a lot. We saw some strange goings on behind the hotel with the man who apparently lives under a tree out back as well as with 2 or 3 other guys who were coming and going and exchanging bags and such with one another. I guess this isn't overly strange for a large city per se but I can definitely see this scenario making the hotel guests uneasy to be outside alone particularly if they are female. We were quite wary to leave anything of value in our vehicle though. Overall though, the hotel is easy to get to, the staff is exceptionally helpful and friendly and it was a comfortable and quiet stay. It is far from the biggest hotel I've ever stayed at and is actually one of the smallest Best Western hotels I've ever seen or been so it is cozy if you like that sort of atmosphere, which we did. I would highly recommend this place to anyone in particular because of the staff and most especially because of the breakfast. Some people may not think it was anything special and may have come to expect that sort of thing from a hotel but I can't speak highly enough of it. I loved it!

    « Hubby's business trip »

    We joined my husband on this trip. He was meeting with several clients during the day that allowed us to travel and shop around the hotel. This hotel has a included breakfast and pool and hot tub. I think the smaller pool is for littler children. The front staff was very helpful. We called to let him know that we would be running late and they saved the room for us. They even put us in the exact room we stayed in during the summer. The bed was very comfortable. The whole room was clean and inviting. I did find it hard to sleep with the C-Train going by but by 1 am it either was done or I finally fell asleep. We did have problems with our keys not working upon our arrival. The front staff gave us new keys and even came up with us to make sure that we could gain access to our room. The only knock I have on this hotel is the room service/cleaning ladies. They came while my son was napping and asked if we needed a cleaning. I asked them to come back later. Which they did not. But the house cleaning manager called and immediately fixed the problem.

    This was my third time staying at this hotel. I like the location as it is close to shopping but out of the city centre. The hotel is very clean and the staff very helpful. The rooms are nice and had almost everything I needed. Two small complaints: I was told on checking in that guests had access to a microwave in the breakfast room. However, outside of breakfast hours this room is not accessible. Also, my room did not get cleaned the first day. I came home after a long day to find no coffee and towels in the bathtub. It was cleaned the second day but that may have something to do with my speaking to the room cleaners the second morning.

    Oh the noise, oh the noise from the road construction nearly 24 hours a day! Jack hammers and then paving trucks beeping all night long. The hotel should advise long term guests like us (we stayed a week) that there will be road construction and traffic problems right outside their hotel front desk. Or offer to cut rates on all rooms at the least or advise guests before arrival so that I could have booked a different room. . Also the jacuzzi in the King suite was not working when we first checked in and then the jacuzzi broke down the night before we were to leave. So much for a romantic last night.

    « You need a car to stay here. »

    The picture you see on this site is from the lower level parking lot on the side of the light rail transit. The front of the hotel faces onto Macleod Trail. This is a smaller, well run hotel that conforms well to what one would expect from a Best Western. There is a small reception area with a small sitting area opposite. There is a limited amount of parking out front, and a large amount of parking at a lower level on the rail side of the hotel, with an exit to a service road that runs alongside the rail tracks. Don't be put off by the noisy location, the rooms are well insulated and one is able to enjoy a resa place for a suitcase, ctful sleep. Reception is staffed by well trained, helpful staff. Rooms are located on 3 levels starting at ground level. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and the whole facility is immaculate. Rooms are well equipped with a comfortable bed or two, desk with chair, lamp, and power outlets, TV with a good choice of channels, cupboard, bathroom and a little area with a shelf, coffee machine, and a bar fridge. The bathroom is spacious and well set out, the shower has a good flow and the temperature is consistent. Everything works, and works well. If I was to search for a niggle, it would be a request to stick with warm coloured lights. this. like so many hotel rooms has a random collection of warm and cool (blue) lamps, which just look a but haphazard. There is a downstairs area where the amenities are located. There is a standard hotel sized indoor pool, with a hot tub and what looks like a kiddie splash pool. All immaculately clean. there is also a dining facility downstairs, which provides the classic BW hot breakfast, with a comprehensive offering of yoghurt, waffle maker, pastries, scrambled egg, sausage, toast, cereals, fruit juices, tea, coffee, etc etc. The location is not far from downtown but this is not a hotel for pedestrians. You will need to drive or cab wherever you want to go from here. There is a Timmies and a McD a few hundred meters up the road. There is a train station a few blocks away as well. There is no view to speak of, Macleod trail is a busy road night and day, and the light rail runs past the east side of the building. Restaurants are plentiful if one is prepared to take a short drive. The pool is great if you have kids who need to release their pent up energy. The breakfast is great as a nutritious, filling way to start the day. So it's a practical hotel, clean and comfortable, nice breakfast, quiet rooms as one could expect in the circumstances, comfortable beds, quiet enough for a good nights sleep, more convenient to downtown Calgary than the airport, for instance. The busy road out front is the reason you get a nice hotel at a reasonable price.

    « Great Staff At This Location »

    This was the fourth or fifth time we have stayed at this hotel. They seem to have vacancy when most other hotels in Calgary are booked up. The front desk staff at this hotel are THE BEST! How often do you remember the staff at a hotel? We remember these guys. The hotel is older, has been renovated, and is becoming a bit run down. I would say a good description would be; the staff here is making the most our of what they have. My inlaws noted holes in the carpet in their room. I guess if you are looking for ultra-new, this is not the place. But it is clean. The pool is nothing special, but the kids enjoyed a quick swim before supper, and that was good enough for us. This hotel is in a bit of a sketchy area, and we hate parking in back. Get a spot in front if you can manage it. The front desk guys will happily provide menus for take out on request. There is a 7-11 three blocks away. An easy walk if you want snacks for the room.

    I had booked the best Western online through airmiles for a free night. We live just outside of Calgary and wanted to have an anniversary date night. I had called a few days prior to confirm our reservation I was told that they would need my credit card upon arrival for incidentals. I was told on the phone by Ryan it would be a $ 100.00 deposit. When we arrived I was told It would be $200. I was a little unhappy about being told one thing and arriving to find out something different. I have a minimum on my credit card and thankfully I was able to do the pre authorization since this particular hotel does not take cash deposits. Something came up and we had to check out that night. Tim was wonderfully understanding and assured me the room was paid for and my deposit would be refunded. Thank you, Tim. Overall, I found the room cozy and clean.

    This is a hard one. The hotel itself was great friendly staff, clean quiet and comfortable rooms. Great amenities like a pool and workout facilities. The bad part the booking and customer service of the phone agent leaves much to be desired. The room was booked using a free night I earned through the Best Western Rewards program. When I arrived at the hotel they where ready to charge me for the room. I showed them my app and the agread we called the BWR agent to get it sorted out and we where greeted with hostility and contempt. I will not stay at a nother BW unless this is taken care of. Sorry to see such a good hotel be tarnished by people who don't even work at the location.

    We stayed here because we needed to fly out of Calgary. So all in all the stay was fine. The room was in ok shape. It was clean, the wifi was ok, little spotty. The staff was very nice. We originally had a problem with the toilet, and they immediately rectified the situation by giving us a new room. The location to downtown is very good. However, there is a lot of construction in that area right now, so traffic was a little heavy. Nothing really wowed me about this place. But it is clean and the staff was really nice. The one elevator was somewhat annoying and slow. The fitness center is not modern, and antiquated, and should not be listed as an amenity on the website.

    « Threatened and abused by check-in clerk »

    I booked a room with 2 beds for myself and friend. I was 'upgraded' without my consent to a 1 bedroom - we could not use this. When I was checking in I was told there were no 2 bed rooms unoccupied yet the clerk later called us to say someone checking in was willing to switch. When I asked why I was upgraded and other guests were not the clerk yelled at me, threatened to rip up my registration and swung at me when throwing the keys at me. And I am a Diamond Member with BW!!!

    « Met Our Expectations »

    The hotel was well located for our purpose. The room was large with twin queen beds (very comfy). The breakfast was excellent with a good choice of both hot and cold food. The TV remote did not function properly but a phone call to the front desk had a replacement in a jiffy. The staff are courteous and helpful. The only negative is the bathroom door. In order to correct a problem, they have installed a heavy exterior door with a closer which makes it difficult to pull open and the weight of the door is greater than what the two hinges could handle so the door did not close properly and you had to pull it closed. If you wanted the bathroom door open to exhaust the steam from the shower, you had to stuff a towel between the door and the jamb. Other than that, it was a good stay.

    « Not for me. »

    This hotel probably could have been ok, but it had 2 significant strikes against it for me personally. First, our room was HOT and the wall thermostat was programmed to go no lower than 20C (as told to us when we called the front desk to find out what we were doing wrong with the AC??) - 20C is not that cool. Second, the coffee in the breakfast area comes from a vending type machine similar to what you'd see in a hospital waiting room - and was absolutely awful. Also, a minor issue, there is one elevator serving the entire hotel and it was slow. I personally will not return to this hotel.

    « Okay stay but should have been better »

    Despite making our reservation weeks ahead and arriving late afternoon, the only room available was right beside the elevator, overlooking the lobby and facing the very busy MacLeod Trail. Called the front desk to ask for a different room, but apparently nothing else, or at least nothing better, was available. Aside from that, the stay was okay. By running the A/C fan we were able to drown out most of the elevator, lobby and street noise. The bed was fine, quite comfortable actually, and the room and bathroom were clean and tidy, although getting a bit worn around the edges. We generally find that Best Western standards have been slipping a bit as of late. Breakfast was the standard, coffee was good and the breakfast room, although very small, was well stocked and kept tidy by the attendant. Probably would look harder to book in elsewhere next time, but this location was close and convenient to where we wanted to be in the city.

    « it was ok »

    It was ok not more, the pool was very clean. A bit expensive. The morning meal was good. The carpet need to be change. A nice hotel if you only have to sleep thier. No proplem with noise from the main street.

    « Good Motel near city »

    Hotel room is spacious. Plenty of parking. Conveniently next to LRT station. It's only 5 minutes from the City center by car. While the room is nice but the beds were just a bit too high off the floor. The mattress did not sleep well but this could be a personal choice. Shower head water pressure is too low and the bathtub at first use did not drain and you stand in water as you shower. The hotel has no in room safe. Could probably use a microwave oven which the competition provides. Breakfast is adequate but certainly not a Deluxe breakfast as advertised. I still recommend this hotel as it has very large room and close to the city.

    Used this hotel as home base for 4 days while attending the Stampede and the family's run-about in the city. Loved the breakfast, especially the pancakes. The hotel was clean, simple and the air con blew nice and cold. Lots of people slamming doors and had kids running the halls. Not the hotel's fault, just the time of year. Staff were quite helpful with directions. Stampede was only a 20 Minute walk.

    My husband & I stayed here to attend a concert at the Saddle dome. The train was about 1 1/2 blocks away & about 3 minutes from the Saddle dome & another couple of minutes to downtown. Very friendly staff & good breakfast. They have a "grab & go" bag breakfast if you don't have time to eat in the breakfast room. This is in south Calgary on MacLeod so it was easy to get to & easy to get out of.

    I stayed at the Best Western Plus for two nights in April on a business trip. Check-in was really easy and the front desk attendant was extremely helpful and very friendly. The room was big and was clean. I didn't use the TV but the internet worked fairly well. The bathroom was clean but the shower pressure was not very good. For some reason they installed rain showers on the wall; very strange. The breakfast is nothing special but there are quite a few options and the coffee is good. The breakfast area is kept very clean and restocked constantly. I would recommend this hotel.

    « Super Friendly Staff and Nice Rooms!! »

    I have stayed at this Best Western twice, originally I stayed there because it was close to the Stampede grounds, but I have stayed there since, simply because its a nice hotel! The front desk staff is super friendly- they even remember me one year to the next ! One day in the lobby, a little boy came, that had trouble with a vending machine, and the clerk was just as kind and helpful to him as he had been to me. The rooms are big, and clean and the beds are very comfortable too! This hotel has many amenities (gym, pool, breakfast.....) and ample parking as well! I booked rooms for myself and four of my colleagues, and everyone was very happy with the staff and the hotel. Some of my colleagues travel a great deal for work, and even they commented on how happy they were with this hotel. I would absolutely recommend staying at this hotel and will definitely stay again in the future, whether it be for business or pleasure.

    « Nothing special »

    The room was clean an tidy, this is most important The breakfast was that processed egg. Stuff with processed meats and a bunch of pancakes to fill the space. Basically very un appetizing The Gym is tiny and really only good for 1 max 2 people at a time The afternoon / evening man on reception was very unprofessional I spend a lot of my time traveling so I like the experience to be pleasant Therefor I will not be using this location in the future.

    Had the "Executive Suite" the carpet was filthy, heating/cooling system didn't work. Room was hot and traffic noise from McLeod Trail was terrible. The rooms need upgrading, Jacuzzi tiles were falling off, bathroom flooring cracked. For the price I paid for a Sunday/Monday night we could have stayed in a posh hotel downtown. One bright spot...

    We recently stayed at the hotel for 3 nights and had a very enjoyable stay. The room was very spacious, clean and had all the amenities required- a microwave, small fridge, hair dryer and coffee maker. The bed was very comfortable. The pool, exercise and hot tub area were very clean. The hot tub was fairly small but the pool was a good size and the temp. comfortable. The continental breakfast was nice with eggs, sausages, pancakes, hot oatmeal etc. Our room was facing the McLeod Trail but was still very quiet. The wi fi was included and worked very well. Overall a very pleasant stay.

    Super friendly and helpful front desk staff. Nice clean and comfortable beds. They also have a clean and pleasant pool and hot tub. Very central location. Only thing I would recommend that Manager do is to install a ATM at his Hotel as his staff politely told me I could find one a short walk a way at the Days Inn, but do you really want your customer having to visit the competition and finding out they are far nicer than you had actually previously thought. I would recommend this hotel especially for people looking to attend the Saddledome

    « Nice, Fairly standard, but... »

    My husband & I are frequent travelers, as he travels for business quite often, & I accompany him. Being disabled, I'm able to speak on that issue as well. We stayed here during the Edmonton Comic & Entertainment Expo in April of 2015. We've been attending that event now for 5 years, & have stayed at as many hotels. We've also been here on many other trips. (Business, weddings, vacations, etc.) It had slipped my mind to book a hotel in advance, & were quite pleased to find a hotel so close to the site, (Saddledome) that was available less than a month before, & at a decent price. (I believe it was approx. $130-$140 a night for a standard 2 queen/4 person room, or less) We booked for 2 nights, Friday & Saturday. I booked a regular room, rather than a mobility one, as we were traveling with our young adult son & his friend, plus, I do have some mobility with a cane. Upon arrival, we were quite pleased. The hotel seemed clean & fairly modern, (though not new) & the desk staff was absolutely lovely...very helpful & friendly, with a great sense of humor. We were placed on the second floor, close to the elevator, for easy access for me. (As I'm a smoker & need to go outside to smoke) The room was fairly nice, mostly modern, (& trust me, I've been in enough hotels to know dated!! lol) and the beds were comfy. I did find the room a bit small though, & with a wheelchair, it made it difficult to place it, even folded. The pool was ok, but the hot tub was quite small. After 8+ hours in a wheelchair, & with several disabilities, I was looking forward to soaking out some pain, but it was overcrowded to the point where some people just had their feet in it, & no one payed attention to the rules. I had to wait 1/2 hour to use it, & when I did, it was dirty to the point that I decided against it & had my husband help me upstairs to just take a hot bath. The pool was nice however, clean & good temperature. They also have a wading pool for tots, which is a great idea. There's no supervision in the pool area though, & if anyone is rowdy, you best just leave. There were several young adults throwing a ball around, & I was struck in the back of my head. The breakfast bar was standard hotel breakfast food, nothing overly special, but still nice to have, as it's a money saver, & there's quite a nice selection of food...eggs, sausage, cereal, fruit, yogurt, toast, etc., as well as juice, tea & coffee. The "hot" items are not prepared by a cook, but are the "pre-cooked" variety. Still, pretty good for what it is. Always something to eat there, no matter what your tastes are. The rooms were fairly quiet, clean & the stay overall was quite nice. It's not the cheapest place, but not the most expensive by far. Great value for the money, & the location can't be beat! Also, probably the best wi fi I've had in a hotel, with both wired AND wireless. (Though I can't verify wired 100%, as this time we didn't use it like we normally do, but it's advertised) Each room is equipped with the usual mini fridge, coffee maker, iron, hair dryer, etc. Some rooms supposedly have a microwave but ours did not. Overall, as of LAST year, (2015) I give it 4 stars. Amazing, friendly & helpful staff, (who spoke English we could understand!) and overall great stay, with clean & fairly modern rooms. HOWEVER.... Because we were happy with our stay, we decided to rebook here this year for the Expo. When we find a place we like, we keep going back & recommending it to others. I tried to book my room, & noticed prices went up about $10-$20 a night, (no biggie) but when I chose our 2 nights, the price jumped another $40+!!! I feel ripped off...almost dirty! I get the overall price increase, (prices 4 everything 4 up) and even a $10-$15 jump a night for a special event, (though even that seems wrong) but seriously, $40 plus a night? If I was basing my review on that alone, it would drop to 2 stars! These events are costly enough, with tickets, fuel, food & heaven forbid you buy anything, (autographs are $50-$75 or more a piece) but adding on $40 plus a night seems crooked. Possibly a management change? I think we'll be trying another place. Too bad. I liked it here. But if it's not a special event, this is an ok place. PS-I saw another review mention having to leave his shoes on...you should do that in ANY hotel, no matter HOW nice! Cleaning staff can't shampoo every day, & you never know WHAT some person is doing in their room. That's not a reflection of the hotel, but the guests. Bring slippers! I do.

    « Okay but wouldn't stay here again »

    This best western is not the nicest but it's on par with the Days Inn up the street. This BW is an aged hotel. The rooms need a face-lift... I wore my boots the entire time as the floor was quite stained and filthy looking. There was someone else's strands of hair on my bed. The toilet flusher needed to be held to get a good flush and it was quite the loud flush. I'm sure the neighbour's could hear it each time lol However everything worked and the service was great.

    My husband and I stayed here Friday night and enjoyed our stay. The check in/out was fast and the front desk staff were very friendly. Room and hallways were clean, bed was amazingly comfortable, breakfast was very good (pancakes, sausages, scrambled eggs, toast, cereal, pastries, oatmeal and fruit). We had one problem while we were there but was not the fault of the hotel. At about 2:30 am I awoke to people arguing and yelling, called the front desk and approximately 5 minutes later there was peace and quiet again. Found out in the morning from the fellow at the front desk that the police were called in immediately and the people in that room were escorted out. Really impressed with the quick response. Would stay here again.

    We arrived late evening, check in was done in the most efficient manner ever seen. It didn't take longer than one minute to finalize the check in procedures and this was done by a very friendly and welcoming front desk officer. Swimming pool is small but nice, rooms are outdated and old but clean. Breakfast was not much of a variety but good to get you going. In a nutshell, nothing special but good enough for a short stay...

    On our first visit to Calgary in many years, we were very impressed by the size and comfort of the rooms at the Best Western Plus Calgary Centre, However, we had decided not to rent a car on this visit, and found out that this motel is not really convenient for walkers. There are very few reputable restaurants in near proximity and it was nearly a $50 cab ride to & from the airport. Staff were excellent and despite the fact that the motel is located on a very busy street, the rooms are very quiet. Also this motel actually has decent lighting in the bathroom for shaving, applying make-up, etc which is a rarity in this day & age.
