Verified Guest from Calgary, AB CA rated Ramada Cochrane 5 out of 10 on March 23, 2013 Verified Guest Hotel Review

"The room was great. Location was great. Had guest above us that were very loud and banging around that kept waking my two year old son at 130am. So nicely asked front desk to talk to them. Which they did. And was told a manager would contact the me the next day about possibly moving rooms. The next day I inquired and was straight up called a liar and told that there had been no noise etc. They were very rude."

"The service, the location and the experience was wonderful."
"The location was great, right next to Tim Hortons, and Boston Pizza. Easy to find, and the kids loved the pool with the waterslide. They have a wonderful hot free breakfast in the morning which was a bonus with 3 children. The hotel room was clean, we will be staying at Ramada Cachrane again."

"Great Sleep, Happy Kids"
"Wonderful pillows, bed very comfortable - I had a great sleep! The kids loved the bunk beds, too. Unfortunately, there were some glitches with the advertised Nintendo system, so we weren't able to use it. However, the kids love the pool, and we always look for that Super 8 family feature!"

Calvin from St.albert, AB US rated Ramada Cochrane 9 out of 10 on August 01, 2005 Verified Guest Hotel Review

"The only real negative issue I had was. Saturady when I returned to my room in the evening, the safety latch was swung open and was keeping the door open. I know it was not me, because the room had been cleaned, so it must have been an oversight by the cleaning staff. Luckily nothing was missing. But this could have been more serious. I brought this to the attention of the front desk."

Denise from Edmonton, AB CA rated Ramada Cochrane 4 out of 10 on July 28, 2005 Verified Guest Hotel Review

"I was not pleased with the front desk during the second day, as the clerk stopped my children and asked what room they were staying in. I came in a moment later and asked the children in the room what they were stopped for and they informed me that the front desk wanted to kno what room they were in. I phoned down to the front desk and asked why they were stopped, as this has NEVER happened to us before, and the lady informed me that sometimes under age girls stay with men at the hotel and are not guest. I was not happy that my children were considered to be 'under aged girls going to a strange man's hotel room'. I informed the clerk she is implying my children are fooling around with men - there only 13/14 years old. A very rude label was placed on my children! I not happy with the situation at all and will not be returning to the Super 8 in Cochrane. Also, the pool was out of commission for the first and second day of our stay so we recieved a $20.00 discount."
