5 out of 5

pleasantly surprised : )

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
Cons: noisy if you get a room by the parking lot
I'll admit, I didn't have high expectations for this very last minute hotel booking but was pleasantly surprised by how friendly the staff was and how clean my room ended up being. It wasn't super fancy but it had everything I needed and was an easy drive to the airport and very close to the Chinook mall. There's not a restaurant but it's within walking distance to several restaurants and bars. I'd stay here again.

I made it through!

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet
Cons: Nothing close
The motel looks okay as you walk in, the staff was okay! The pool Is probably the best looking thing in the building! Rooms were run down and although they tried to renovate everything was poorly done! The mattress was hard probably better to sleep on the floor if it wasn't so filthy. The mattress pad was a joke Im not even sure it qualified as one, our sheets may have been clean I'm not sure because they were so wrinkly (maybe left in the dryer too long hopefully). On the up side no bed bugs because I made my husband check. Our room was dirty, and rundown, but I don't know if all of them were, perhaps because we were prepaid it didnt matter to them where we slept as long as they gave us a room! Oh and continental breakfast was weak they had toast and cereal and tiny bagels but they boiled eggs and they were frozen cold who knows how long they had been made in advance! Altogether worst mistake of our trip

Great Calgary South Hotel

I really enjoyed my stay here. I am a travelling salesperson on a tight budget so I have to be careful where I spend my money. After shopping around and looking at various rooms on Macleod trail I found the Econo Lodge to give me the best deal. A few things I enjoyed with my stay: Microwave and fridge, Hot tub, free wireless, great service. There are many places to eat within walking distance. I really like the thai place accross the street, Thai Nong Khai. \nTip: ask for the corporate rate.

Noisy Place

Good location but noisy. Between virtually no soundproofing between the rooms and the noise of traffic, hard to sleep. Needs upgrading, expecially in the bathroom. Parking is really tight especially with big trucks parked in the spaces, hard to get in and out. Continental breakfast was so, so, should have had more fruit then just apples. Bed was uncomfortable. Won't stay there again.
