"Pleasantly Surprised by Recent Renovation!"
Hotel has been recently remodeled and was in excellent condition - nice, new, and clean overall. Great indoor pool and hot tub, and very close and convenient to everything in Calgary. Plenty of restaurants of various levels within walking distance - especially recommend the Cheesecake Cafe across the road! I had the read the reviews before I booked and was prepared for an older, dated motel. While the outside does show its age, everything inside was up to date and modern. I anticipate having to go to Calgary several additional times in the near future and this place will be my first choice. It was by far the best bargain of all the hotels when I did my research.

"An exceptional employee"
We enjoy the hotel. The service is generally good with an exceptional service given by "FAUSTA". I cannot rate her highly enough. It is because of her attitude last time that we returned to this hotel.

Very clean, reasonable price and very quiet. Also liked that the top bedding was washable and not a big heavy bedspread that would have to be dry cleaned. Would recommend this hotel and would definitely stay here again.

"cheap one-night stop-over"
This motel is in a very convenient city location; front desk staff were very nice and professional; I paid a nice low rate so can't complain too much...but I had to wash a lot(a lot!)of grime off the bathroom light switch before I could touch it and that made me uncomfortable about the general cleanliness of the room, although it was tidy. I was also surprised by the amount of noise (very loud talking) from the housekeeping staff outside the door in the morning. But there was a nice pool area and a breakfast was available, and the room included a fridge and microwave which adds to the value from my perspective. I might consider staying there again, but I would be sure to pack sanitizing wipes.

I was very pleased with everything. My flight was delayed - got to the hotel almost 2 the next morning. The hotel staff at the desk gave me a warm welcome - I appreciated everything that was done to make my stay a pleasant one. Throughout my stay all the staff members were so helpful (made some friends). I will highly recommend this hotel and hope to visit again soon.

"Good hotel for the price"
It was a comfortable place to stay. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful. I would have rated it higher in room cleanliness, but there was a cigarette odor in the room even though it was a non-smoking room. I noticed this a lot in other hotels in Canada. The breakfast was highly lackluster. But overall, the Econo Lodge South is a good value for the price by overinflated Calgary standards.

"So grungy I was afraid to take off my shoes"
This place is terrible. It's the kind of place with doors that go out to the parking lot and big stains on the chairs, floors and bedding. I was literally afraid to take off my shoes, and when I sat down I did so on a towel. The city was sold out for some reason, so rather than endure this place I opted to ask a fellow traveler to crash in his extra bed in another hotel. Yes, it's that bad.

"Good Basic Hotel in South Calgary"
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.

"Older style but nice."
This is an older style hotel. It's not perfect but the staff was excellent and we had absolutely no problems. There is plenty of places to eat within walking distance from the room. There is also a grocery store just up the street. It is a straight shot up the street up to the Calgary Stadium(under 10 minutes if you hit the lights wrong). We will stay here again when we come back to Calgary.

"Good and bad"
Comfortable clean beds and bathroom. Friendly staff but careless mistakes were made. A wake up call was asked for twice but not written down so we didn't get it one morning. The next morning we asked for one at 6:30 a.m. and got one earlier than that as well as the time we asked for it. Also, several important phone calls came in for us but we were disconnected each time. The neighborhood felt unsafe as soon as you stepped outside the motel door but inside the hotel room was fairly quiet and you didn't know it was on a major highway. We had to move rooms also when we first arrived as the heating was not working in the first room. Breakfasts were very good.

"Great Convievent "To-Go" Hotel"
I stayed at this hotel for few nights. Overall, my experience was good at this hotel. The staff are friendly and welcoming. The room was tad dated but clean and comfortable. Tub look slightly dirty and shower pressure is too soft so need to work on that. Bed was tad too firm for my liking but not too bad really. I like the free breakfast - great selection and huge seating area with big windows. I enjoyed the relaxing time in the pool & hot tub. Overall, I wouldn't mind to come back again because it's convenient location, cheap & good features for its price.

"Newly renovated room."
Nice hotel, fast WiFi. Would have been nice if they had turned on the heat in the hotel-room when arriving in the middle of the night in -15. Think it was 5degrees in the rooom... and the man at the reception gave really bad instructions to where my room was so I had to go back 2 times and ask... it consists of several wings and bad signs. Besides that there is nothing to complaint about and the price was a lot better than the other hotels.

"WISH they were 100% non-smoking"
HI...Many low price places have no smoking and smoking so the smoke travels through the ducts/vents; therefore, it is a smoking establishment advertised as non-smoking. They say that I am in a non-smoking room but smoke enters it so really it isn't a TRUE non-smoking room. They use a strong air freshener to try to mask the situation then it becomes a double allergy reaction producing place lending itself to an unpleasant stay and a no return. They should probably remain a 100% non-smoking hotel and in the long run they would retain more customers. Other than that the room was clean but when the air is not agreeable and causes discomfort a person will seek other alternatives in the future.
