Editor's Analysis
Updated Jul 13, 2012
Located a 15 minute drive from Calgary International Airport (YYC), and approximately a 12 minute walk to Sunridge Mall, this hotel is popular with guests seeking economical accommodation, or who want easy access to the airport. On-site amenities include an indoor pool and a gym.

There are both smoking and non-smoking rooms available at this hotel. Guests have their choice of rooms with various configurations and bed types. All rooms have Wi-Fi, a 32 inch flat screen TV, a coffeemaker, a hair dryer and an iron and an ironing board. There is free parking available on site, and pets are permitted for a cost of $10/day. Guests travelling by air can also take the free airport shuttle that runs on the hour, 24 hours a day.

Although this hotel is located nearby a number of restaurants, guests do have the choice to dine on site at Ryleys Restaurant, serving breakfast daily from 6:30am-10:00am and dinner from 5:00pm-9:00pm.

While this hotel is within walking distance to a major mall, guests will need access to a vehicle (or public transport) to access a number of other Calgary attractions, including the Calgary Zoo (a 13 minute drive) and the downtown area (just under a 20 minute drive), which is where the business district, Stampede Corral, the Calgary Tower and the Glenbow Museum are located (distances and driving time estimates: Google Maps).

Check-in is at 3:00pm, while check-out is at 11:00am.

Confirmed with a front desk agent: Wi-Fi, parking, shuttle, pet policy (call date: July 11, 2012).
The Good
There were a number of things that were responsible for enhancing the stay of guests at this hotel, namely good service from staff and convenient location.

The location was a positive feature for many guests. Some liked the proximity to the airport. A few others mentioned that it was conveniently located to a number of shops and restaurants. Another guest said that the hotel was well located to public transit to go to downtown Calgary.

Staff received top marks from guests at this hotel, who used words like "friendly" and "helpful" to describe them. Front desk staff, shuttle bus drivers and housekeeping were mentioned specifically. Staff went "above and beyond" for a few guests.

Price point was a favourable factor for many guests too, who used words like "economical" and "cheap", and felt that they got good value for the price paid.

There were a few additional comments on things like comfortable beds and pillows.
The Bad
While there were a number of positive reviews, of those used for this analysis, there were some common threads among guest complaints, including a lack of attention to cleaning, and tired decor.

Some guests felt that there was a lack of detailed cleaning in the rooms and in the common areas. One guest suggested that greater care needed to be given to carpets and to vacuuming, and another felt that it was dusty. Other guests mentioned unclean hallways, and that the whole hotel felt "dirty".

One guest said that decor was "dated and worn" and another said that it was "tired".  There was specific mention of patched walls and old bedding.

A few guests had issues within the rooms themselves, including clogged sinks and unpleasant mildew odours

There were a few peripheral complaints, mostly centring on the hours and selection of food at the on-site restaurant and slow elevator service.
