            It was easy access to elbow drive to glenmore trail to crowchild trail to the university

            room was fairly clean, hallway rugs were stained, and smoke oder

            The staff was wonderful and friendly. My husband and I were treated with utmost respect. We innatialy had an incorrect room and was imediatly corrected.

            I think that a bigger selection of bagels would have been great!

            I felt it was a good hotel and I was disappointed to find the ice machine wasn't working, it was quickly remedied with ice brought to the hotel. Your hotel staff was extremely helpful.

            For the most part it was a good experience, affordable, and pleasant.

          • Single
            5.4

            Location for where I was going.

            I found the appearance of the hotel "old" and the interior hallways dark and dingy. My room was spartan and dark.

          • Family with children
            5.0

            Fast check in and out, good free continental breakfast, good location

            Lights in hallway can be improved, as hallway appears dark

          • Family with children
            7.4

            We felt like at home. My kids really enjoyed during the two night stay.

          • Single
            3.4

            Not a welcoming atmosphere. Staff not knowledgeable, professional, friendly or accommodating. Rooms cramped and dismal, showers inadequate, not particularly clean, mediocre continental breakfast. My first stay will be my last.

          • Older travelers
            10.0

            The room was spacious, the bed comfortable and breakfast offered a number of healthy food options.

            The smell of chlorine from the pool was present in the stairwell.

          • Older travelers
            8.2

            Quiet room, free wi fi, breakfast, easy to find

          • Family with children
            5.8

            We enjoyed the pool although the hot tub was extremely hot. The breakfast was adequate.

            The rooms were quite old but what bothered us more is that they were not very clean and had poor air circulation. The hallway carpet was also not clean; I'm quite certain the vacuum picked up nothing.

          • Older travelers
            8.2

            The cleanliness of the breakfast area. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

            Could have had a better room for my 90year old grandmother to get around.

          • Couple
            9.2

            We enjoyed a large, clean room. The bed was very comfortable. Pool area was very nice - bright with lots of windows, large pool. Staff was helpful. I would definately return to this hotel. Excellent value for your money. Continental breakfast was adequate, nothing special though. Generally quiet.

            Continental breakfast was nothing special. Coffee very weak

            Location worked for me needs updating

            Rooms with kitchens need a lot of work and not worth the price

            The location was great. Very centrally located and within wallking distance of amenities. The staff was very friendly and the hotel was very clean. No complaints at all and would stay there again!
