    Location

    We chose the hotel for price and the hot tub. However, for an extra 20-50 bucks per nights we could have stayed in a much nicer motel. Truthfully the rooms were really not great. We had to get extra pillows, the soap provided was poor quality and the matresses needed replacing. As well the rooms were very noisy and we were subjected to alot of outside noise until late at night from otehr guests smoking outside and then early in thr morning from trucks starting up right outside the door early in the morning. The hot tub was 45 degree the first night and so we could not enjoy the hot tub the first night. It is unlikely we will chose this motel again.

    that it is a choice hotel. location was important.

    we have stayed at nicer choice hotels in the U.S. which are newer and rates are better. cigarette smell in the place. cord for hair dryer was coated in dust/nicotine particulate. towels were thin , some damage has happened before and then covered up with fake tub which had patches over top of original tub. vents for air circulation are dirty with about 1/2 inch of dust hanging down from vent cover. not worth the money they charged.

    Very easy check in. All staff were wonderful and helpful. Continental breakfast was good (mini muffins, hard boiled eggs, toast/bagels, fruit, juice, tea/coffee, cereal) and plenty there. Great availability times for facilities.

    Needed conditioner but none available to purchase at front desk.

    We love the location. It is close to Chinook Centre. My son and I used the Gym. It was ok but smaller than the previous hotels we stayed in. Staffs are great. Fresh towels were given even if we didn't ask for it. My husband and I will come back in Calgary this Sept. We will definitely stay in this location again.

    They should have more breakfast selection.
