"It was very busy because of Stampeed. The hotel seemed old, which I don't mind if things are kept up, but the airconditioning did not work and the desk attendant said he would look into it but did not. I have stayed in much nicer hotels for much less money. I suppose they could charge that amount because it was Calgary Stampede week, but it leaves a bad taste in the mouth."
