Response by Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites Calgary S-Macleod Trail S Dear Frank , Thank you for your recommendation
"Good location and fair prices"
Nice hotel for the price. I usually stay closer to downtown but with stampede in town the downtown hotels were all ridiculously expensive. This hotel was reasonably priced even during stampede, and there are lots of amenities nearby. Nice clean rooms, good size. Free breakfast was nice touch.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites Calgary S-Macleod Trail S Although we are located away from downtown the LRT which takes you direct to the stampede grounds is only a 10min walk . Convenience , great shopping near us as well as a wide variety of Restaurants

"Overall Good Hotel"
We always try to stay at this hotel when in Calgary and never have any issues. The staff are great and the rooms are always clean and comfortable.Genuine Expedia guest review
Had to change plans unexpectedly. Hotel day manager completely unwilling and open to even try to come to agreement on making a plan. Was willing and aware to adhere to their cancellation policy of one night's pay if I change booking, but the selfish money wolves did not budge... I will not ever stay here again or same chain. Hotel and room otherwise […] OK but have bad taste in mouth just thinking of money wasted booking here - do not ever book here if you think plans may change, flight delays, etc. Luckily that never happens in Calgary or Canada for that matter....

"The Holiday Inn Express"
The staff were pleasant and the lobby was nice. The beds were extremely comfortable but the rooms were a little dark and dingy and probably needed updating. The breakfast was good and there was someone around to assist if needed. The only issue I had was that when someone else in another room had a shower your heard the pipes clanging in my room. Also […] notice that the grout along the bathroom in 221 needed cleaning or replaced. All in all - I would recommend this hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"nice room bad sleep"
The room was fine, breakfast bar is good, the only issue was a car alarm going off 3 times during the night. Not sure whose car but this definitely disturbed our sleep.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice little break"
Stayed at this hotel one night and everything was great. Rooms were clean beds were very comfortable and staff pleasant and effecient. The only reason i would stay anywhere else is because of its location to the LRT stations. Which for many is not an issue.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great value for Calgary"
Rooms were clean and well decorated. Beds were comfortable. Breakfast was quite good. Would definitely stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Burnt out light bulbs and Leaky faucets"
I booked at this hotel for 5 nights. On the night of my arrival I called the front desk to tell them that there were 2 light bulbs burnt out in the bathroom, making it very dark, and that the faucet in the tub had a leak that was noisy and annoying. They said they would fix it the next day as the maintenance staff had all left for the night. After 4 […] of my 5 night booked stay, neither thing had been replaced - not even the burnt out light bulbs. Then I had an emergency at home, for which I needed to cut my trip short. After explaining this to the hotel management, on Monday morning, they would not allow me to cancel my room for Tuesday night. They told me I would have had to cancel that night 72 hours before checking in, and there were no exceptions to that rule. Even though I gave them more than 36 hours notice, and I was only needing to change my plans by one night. They charged my card for the whole stay, and were completely rude and inconsiderate. After bringing up the fact that I stayed in a room with no lights in the bathroom for 4 days and had to wear earplugs at night so the sound of the leaking faucet didn't keep me awake the whole time, they did not even bat an eye. Management told me they had not record of a complaint, even though I called and spoke in person to the front desk attendant at least one time each day about it. Overall, I was very disappointed, fount the hotel to be wildly overpriced for the quality of service they offered. Will never stay there again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"The Perfect Spot"
When ever I come to Calgary the Holiday Inn Express on Lake Fraser Drive is my personal favorite. The staff are so pleasant, the rooms are everything I need, and I always enjoy my stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
loved the rooms and the pool was wonderful. The desk clerk let us stay in pool until 11 as we got there at 9:45. was great as really needed to relax.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
My fiancé and I stayed at this hotel for one night. At about 1 am we heard loud banging on the room door next to us with a man trying to get in his room. Our dogs would bark everytime he would bang on the door and tell. I went out to ask him to keep it down he was clearly drunk. He cursed at me and called me names. My fiancé got up to see what Was going […] on as he heard what this man had said to me. The man continued to insult me and my fiancé..he then tried to punch my fiancé who had to defend himself. I called the front desk to ask them to do something about this. Nothing was done and a half hour later the drunk man came back kicking the door and telling and threatening to hurt my fiancé. My fiancé confronted him and tried levelling with him. The drunk then asked him to have a beer or drugs which my fiancé does not do. He tried to come into our room. Then started getting mad at him. He lunged again at my fiancé who then defended himself again. This mans wife finally opened the door and took him inside. The hotel did absolutely nothing to fix this situation or make us feel safe. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. Ever. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Looks like we got the worst room on the floor"
The hotel is not a bad hotel, it is what you expect from a Holiday Inn Express. Not sure if it was because of the discounted rate or what but even though the hotel was not fully booked - they gave me the room that had the elevators basically in my room. The room wrapped around the elevator shaft and was so NOISY it was brutal. The heat couldn't be controlled […] either - off or on and it was so hot in the room I couldn't breathe. Definitely not a good stay! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Had a very nice stay and a lovely time, nice pool and facilities.Genuine Expedia guest review
We arrived late and did not get a chance to check in before going to a wedding, we did not get to the motel until after midnight, but the guy at the front desk was very friendly and told us no problem.... Handed us our key and asked if he could do anything more for us!!!! The next morning the girl was just as friendly when we checked out!!! Great room, […] quiet and comfy!!!! Five stars!!!!

"Comfortable hotel close to downtown"
The stay was better than last stay in Holiday Inn Express. We booked a room with two queen size beds, we were family of two parents and 3 kids, the sofa bed was comfortable enough for one kid. The staff was very friendly. Overall, we were satisfied with the stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
Nice hotel, everything as expected. The only possible negative thing I can think of is that the lobby ladies washroom needs a larger garbage disposal as the wet and used paper towels were flowing out of the receptacle and were touching the clean ones which is not really sanitary when you are talking hand washing. Otherwise, no issues. Would go backGenuine Hotels.com guest review
A little inconvenient that we were unable to occupy our room before 3:00 pmGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Clean and comfortable!"
My husband and I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express SE in Calgary, AB on Wednesday, Sept 4th. We called and reserved a room while driving down from Banff that evening, without having read any previous reviews, and were delighted to find that our hotel room was clean and comfortable. The staff person my husband spoke with was both pleasant and helpful […] in explaining how to find the hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
It was worst night I ever stayed in the hotel while travel, the room was quickly booked by Hotel.com and it was short driving, however the washroom was flooded, I had to inform front desk employee, unfortunately no one was able to resolve my concerns and issues, instead I had to get four towels and left them on the bathroom floor in order to drain water. […] We woke up three times during eight hours stay and used public washroom in the main lobby. Next morning I spoke to on duty manager, all she did was taking notes about my issues and concerns, she promised me to get me an answer within a week and so far I have not received yet. According to the manager there were rooms available last night and on duty clerk did mention she would like to move us, but she said all rooms were sold out. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was very clean. The staff helped us out very much. I would recommend this hotel to others. Not to far from everything, and close to the airport. ThanksGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The lobby and room were clean. Microwave and fridge was a nice touch. The buffet was GREAT! Good variety of food, hot and delicious.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very comfy beds"
Nice rooms and well kept. Air con was a bit noisy but it didn't stop us sleeping as the beds were just like home. A good variety of food for breakfast, won't win any Michelin stars but will set you up for the day. Would certainly stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"An okay place"
The hotel location was perfect for what I needed, which was to be in the south end of the city. The fact that I was there during Stampede week meant that the price of the room was double what it normally would be, literally (I know this as I've booked again for the near future). The cleaning staff were somewhat haphazard in their work - sometimes towels […] were replaced, sometimes they weren't. Sometimes the garbage was emptied, sometimes it wasn't. Free breakfast is great, but it opened at 0630, and I had to be out of the building by then in order to get to work so it was useless to me. Room air conditioner is effective, but VERY loud. Not value for money during the Stampede price hike, but at any other time it is decent value. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Holiday Inn Express average"
There were no recycling containers in the hotel rooms - this is really unacceptable, every room should provide recycling options. The TV was v-e-r-y slow to respond, which made changing channels a long process. The hot breakfast was disappointing - the eggs were rubbery and had an odd taste.Genuine Expedia guest review
"decent but tough location"
it was ok but they switched me from the king I reserved to two queens and didn't offer to do anything for me for the switchGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very Comfy Stay!"
The main things I look for when searching for a hotel are proximity to where I need to be and cleanliness. I was very pleased with this hotel. Would definitely stay here again!Genuine Expedia guest review
Stay was fantastic!!! Hotel staff were great and the room was great.Genuine Expedia guest review
"no toilet paper"
Our hotel stay was great. Staff were great. The only thing that was wr0ng is that we ran out of toilet paper and the cleaning staff did not replace it, we had to go to the front desk and ask for some. Everything else was great.Genuine Expedia guest review
We had a nice stay. The hotel is very clean. The pool and water slide was great fun although there was a small child in there without parental supervision. The continental breakfast was excellent but staff should not be putting everything away at 9:20 a.m. when the breakfast is suppose to be open till 9:30 a.m. Also room had kleenex, shampoo and conditioner […] one day and not the next. These are small annoyances and can be easily fixed. All in all a really wonderful hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice and clean and quite. Not a far drive to downtown. Lots of shops near byGenuine Expedia guest review
We enjoyed the comfortable beds and room. The room rate was reasonable. We only had one complaint... The new carpeted hallways are beautiful! But the smell was overwhelming (headache) every time we opened our door to go somewhere. I would go back, but hope the new carpet (glue?) smell is gone next time.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Ease of location"
I did not mind the hotel at all, my only suggestion would be NOT to replace carpent during the eveing when guests are trying to rest/sleep.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel was clean and staff were courteous. Continential breakfast was good, coffee was alright. I liked that the rooms had a microwave and fridge as there was no restaurant in the hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Awesome - clean, waterslide, great breakfast"
Wonderful, clean hotel! Room was beyond expectations with comfortable bed and nice shower. Waterslide and hot tub were a huge bonus. Best chain-hotel continental breakfast I've ever had (even a pancake maker)!Genuine Expedia guest review
