Not your average Motel... May 22, 2013
This is a newly renovated motel in the North West of Calgary. Don't let the title of a motel fool you. While it is definitely a motel on the outside, it is everything but once you get inside the room. It has a very modern feel to it; was here as a little birthday retreat for myself and enjoyed the stay very much!


- Updated, very modern room

- Free parking

- Free Breakfast

- Free wifi

- Great shower; amazing water pressure

- Upon check out, they give you 10% off discount on your next visit


- Not as affordable as typical motels

- The location is clearly for truck drivers + those in such industries; not the easiest access to downtown Calgary

I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who doesn't mind staying in a location that isn't in the SW/ downtown. You definitely get great value for the price you pay and you will enjoy your stay!!

out of town Sep 12, 2012
This motel located just outside the town. We were told by the friendly staff to drive our car to the Park & Ride Brendwood station and take the train downtown as the parking fee is extremely high. It took about 10 minutes' drive from the motel to the train station and another 10 minutes on train to get to downtown. So if you do not have a vehicle, it is better to stay in the hotels that located downtown and of cause, it will cost a lot more.

This motel has a tiny lobby but what impressed us was we are free to use their Apple computers!

The room was clean but small in size. We had quite a number of luggages and it was rather tight to fit all in the room. There was a working desk and a chair, a heater, flat screen TV, coffee and tea making facility and a refrigerator in this tiny room! Our so called queen size bed was made out of two single beds, though was clean but not comfortable because we would fall in between the "ditch". When we turned on the light in the bathroom, the exhaust fan would turn on and that made a lot of noise and that disturbed my sleep. We had to turn it off in order to get a peaceful sleep.

The room and bathroom are modern and clean, they provide one soap only which we had to use the hand soap as our bath soup. I would be ok for people who only stay for one night. One other negative part - the drain in the shower worked very slowly, by the time I finished my shower, the bathroom was flooded. The hot and cold water did not work as well; it was either too hot or too cold.

This motel provides free wifi internet service and free continental breakfast which we really appreciated for.

As all our hotels are pre-booked, we had to go back to this motel on our way back from Banff. This time, we were allocated on the second floor where the shower worked properly; I meant no flooding after shower. The bed was not the combination of two single beds - so I was happy with it.

We are not sure if we will be back to this hotel though, because of its location and some problems with the bathroom.
