Editor's Analysis
Updated on Aug 13, 2012
Overview
Located on Macleod Trail South, near two of Calgary's biggest shopping malls (South Centre, a 7-minute drive away, and Chinook Centre, a 6-minute drive away), this hotel is popular with travellers who are seeking budget accommodations.

Guests can choose from two doubles, one king or one queen bed, and can expect free Wi-Fi, a hair dryer, a coffeemaker and an iron and an ironing board in all of the rooms. There is free parking available on site, and pets are permitted for a cost of $25/day.

On-site amenities include a gym, an indoor pool and a hot tub. There are no restaurants on site, but there are dining options located within walking distance of the hotel. Guests are offered a complimentary continental breakfast daily. 

Some of Calgary's main attractions (Stampede Corral, the Calgary Tower and the Glenbow Museum), as well as the business district, are housed in the downtown area, which is about a 13-minute drive straight up north on Macleod Trail. The Calgary Zoo is another popular attraction, and is about a 15-minute drive away. Guests travelling by air should expect about a 24-minute drive to travel the 27 km between the hotel and Calgary International Airport (YYC). (All distances and driving time estimates: Google Maps).

Confirmed with a front desk agent: parking, Wi-Fi and breakfast (call date: August 12, 2012).

"Room was clean and tidy upon arrival, however the next day cleaning, the room needed to be vacummed, and that leads me to wonder what else was missed on the daily cleaning. Hotel was very quiet"

Elli from Brooks, AB CA rated Calgary Macleod Trail Travelodge Hotel 2 out of 10 on July 29, 2006 Verified Guest Hotel Review

"Thanks for the opportunity to sound off! The room was not very clean - didn't look like the carpet had been vacuumed. Didn't appear nice and clean and fresh. The bathroom was the worst! Little hairs all over the tub, floor, vanity, stuck on the wall, but what really grossed us out was the pair of men's briefs hung behind the bathroom door! I checked the beds to make sure they were clean, and since they seemed all right, and because it was late at night, we decided to stay and complain in the morning. I mentioned that a discount might be a good idea, but was told we had the biggest discount available since my mother received the senior's discount. For $114.95 per night, I was extremely disappointed, and will not ever stay at another Travelodge!"
