Located a 2-minute drive off of Deerfoot Trail (also known as Hwy 2) and a 2-minute walk to Deerfoot Casino in Calgary's south east quadrant, this hotel is popular with those who want to stay outside of the downtown core. Because of its family-friendly amenities like bunk beds in some rooms and a pool with a waterslide, the hotel attracts many families as well.
All of the 139 rooms at this hotel have free Wi-Fi, a 32" flat-screen TV, bathrobes, a hair dryer, a mini-fridge, a coffeemaker and an iron and ironing board. Standard rooms are available (king or queen beds), as well as more spacious suites (some of which have a jetted tub, a full kitchen and/or bunk beds geared to those travelling with children). Pets are permitted for an additional cost of $15/night.
While there is no restaurant on site, guests are offered a complimentary hot breakfast buffet daily. There are a couple of dining establishments located within a 3-minute walk of this hotel including Moxies at Deerfoot Casino next door. On-site amenities include free parking, an indoor pool with a waterslide, a hot tub and a complimentary shuttle to the nearby Deerfoot Casino.
This hotel is about a 16-minute drive to Fish Creek Provincial Park, one of Canada's largest urban parks. Another popular South Calgary attraction is Heritage Park Historical Village, about a 15-minute drive away. The downtown area (where the business district, the Stampede Corral and the Calgary Tower are located) is about a 20-minute drive away.
