Disappointing stay

Cons: Different beds, AC/Fans, softer sheets, carpets or rugs to quiet down room, better signage, working keys,
Location: Close to metro, downtown
Found SAIT online to be a reasonable price for a one night stay during the Calgary Stampede. Took a bit an effort to find the hotel since it's on a campus without good signage. The hotel staff was nice, that's about the only thing positive about the stay. The key cards didn't work for the door and it took about 45 min for them to figure out the door lock was not operating and had to find us a master key, from another staff member. The room was stifling hot when we entered and found the atmosphere unpleasant. Concrete floor, high squeaky bed frame, rough sheets, and no AC nor fan. I have stayed in nicer youth hostels than this room, or at least that is how one should view the comfort level. Lots of noise in the hallway and from other rooms doesn't help the atmosphere. The parking is secure, but a decent walk away. I sure didn't mind as it was a nice cool temperature outside vs the room. I am happy we didn't book two nights there. Breakfast was down in the Denny's and had nothing very nice to eat (scrambled eggs and waffles). It didn't even come close to their $4 meal. To say the least, if you are a student and will be out partying most of the night, its a place you'd probably like. If you tend on wanting some of what you pay for, look elsewhere. We promptly booked a different hotel the next morning about 5 min out of town for a similar price and found the experience completely opposite.
