"Good Basic Hotel in South Calgary"
Reviewed by a Hotels.com guest on Feb 17, 2013
Stayed at the Econo Lodge for two nights during a recent stay in Calgary. The hotel was an older building, but the rooms were clean and actually very quiet considering that the hotel was located right on McLeod Trail. It was very conveniently located for everything we were doing in SW and SE Calgary and getting to downtown was very easy. The only think I was a bit disappointed in was the state of the pool area and the exercise room. The exercise facility was very small with only three pieces of equipment, one of which..the recumbent bike was broken. The jacuzzi hot tub was only luke warm, but this may have been because it wasn't used much and was off for a long period of time. It took quite a while to warm up and never did get really hot. The continental breakfast was just the basic fare, although not much different from what is offered in most other budget hotels. All in all we had a pleasant two day stay in this hotel and considering the lower cost of our room, we would certainly stay here again in the future.
"Neal Young Concert - Saddle Dome"
Reviewed by a Hotels.com guest on Nov 23, 2012
Hotel was very close to public transportation...a big deal if you are attending an event at the Saddle Dome or don't want to drive downtown. The desk manager, Dan, was extremely helpful with providing information and ensuring our stay was as fun and relaxed as it could be. The breakfast was good and a nice benefit....we look forward to staying here on a return trip.
"Great staff and great value for money!"

Convenient location, walking distance to the local train system and easy access to downtown. Quite a few restaurant offering different cuisines within walking/short driving distance. Situated on a main street, but my room was facing the back and didnt have any problems with noise. Neighborhood is ok. Rooms are decent - pretty standard for comfort inn- flat screen TV a plus. Free morning breakfast also fairly standard for comfort inn. The best part of the stay was the friendly and helpful staff. Cyndy and Gautam at the front desk were wonderful as also the person working nights and the lady who works at the morning breakfast. They do an amazing job! Helped out quite a bit with providing info, general questions and also the odd favors. Didnt use the pool or the gym facilities, but seemed pretty decent too. A very good experience overall. Would recommend for sure if you are looking for value for your money- the downtown hotels were way more expensive.
"Hotel close th McMahon Stadium"
Reviewed by a Hotels.com guest on Sep 17, 2012
Hotel is across the street from McMahon Stadium ( home of the Calgary Stampeders) . Area outside does not have sidewalks , that being said there was a pedestrian bridge to get you to the Stadium. Also the restraunt "Nicks" is good sports bar and restraunt and the food was very good. Hotel is very clean and well kept , a bit dated but dated but well maintained . Service was very good as well.
