"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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Internet is very slow , except that everything is good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good location for an overnight"
Hotel was ok. Good for an overnight. The location for us was the most important. Pillows did smell of smoke in a smoke free room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
older hotel but great location and frendly employs nice stay . fair breakfastGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"close to all the sights on our list"
The morning clerk was most helpful about giving us directions to the places we were going for the day. We were happy with our stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Econo Lodge South - Good Hotel"
Hotel is ideally located, priced fairly and is generally very comfortable. Lots of hot water for showers in evening or morning. Carpet replacement would be a good upgrade for this hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
cheap enough for Calgary, no frills basic accomadationsGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Exactly as advertised"
Hotel was exactly as advertised, very good for a business trip.Genuine Expedia guest review
Just stayed one night and didn't spend much time in the hotel. The front desk was super nice, the room was nice and clean and most importantly the beds where comfortable. Didn't stay for breakfast do can't comment. I have never been to an econolodge before I normally stay in higher end hotels but this time I was with friends on a budget. I have to say […] I was pleasantly surprised as it was better than I expected. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Close to Chinook Mall, great Sea Food restaurant"
Close to almost everything I needed. The CTrain was a short walk and I took a taxi to the CTRAIN and it was only $7.50 with tip. Breakfast could have been better, however I wasn't spending a lot per night I was happy.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect location for all we needed"
We found the hotel clean, the staff friendly and helpful. The room was fine too, with all that we needed. The best part for us was it was close to shopping, heritage park, restaurants and everything else we needed.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Dated but Convenient Hotel close to good restauran"
Though the staff were very friendly and we liked the location, we will not be staying at this Hotel again. The bathroom is very tiny. The shower was good. But no vanity or anything in the bathroom. It was by the beds where we slept. The sink was above the vanity and the soap kept slipping off behind the raised sink. I did not like keeping my toiletries […] out in the open where we may be having guests. I like privacy for that. The bed was very comfortable. The room was small for it - not much walking room. The walls, windows and rugs were very dated but basically clean. We had to walk through the smoking section to get to breakfast; that was bad and we were holding our breath...sorry, but not again. The Breakfast room was nice. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"One of the worst places to stay"
The smell of smoke everywhere, dusty, poor breakfast effort, will never stay here againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Woud Stay Again"
Really comfy beds. Great continental breakfast. Wonderful pool. It's a great place to camp and do some day trips to Banff. Staff was friendly and gave us an extra hour to check out.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"One night only"
We were in Calgary for an appointment at Rockyview hospital and this hotel is about 10 min from there. Hotel is clean with good parking. Room was clean but had a musty smell. Breakfast room was upstairs so not handicap friendly but large and also clean. Breakfast was basic coffee, juice, toast etc. Lots of restaurants nearby including pizza places right […] next door. One thing to be aware of the beds are soft so if you like a hard bed might want to look elsewhere. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Stay at Econolodge Calgary South East"
Staff were good. Pool and hot tub were good. Continental breakfast was good. I really liked the room for the continental breakfast. Room was reasonably clean and quiet. Close to Chinook mall. Overall a positive experience.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great experience staying in this hotel"
The staff were very aaccomodating. I requested a room close to my sister that checked in the day before and they got me right beside her. I also forgot a pair of shoes in my room. The staff was very helpful in tracking them down and getting them back to me. Thank you Econo Lodge.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We were extremely pleased with our stay! The hotel is definitely older, but has been kept up well. We were very happy with our clean, comfortable beds. Close to downtown, the Zoo and Heritage Park (our destinations), and very family friendly. I booked this hotel simply for the pool options - a kiddie pool with a toddler and baby is a must. They did […] not disappoint us. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Enjoyable stay with our two grandchildren."
A short but enjoyable stay. Pool was uncrowded and clean. Especially nice was the breakfast area. Lots of room including 2 waffle makers which eliminated long waits that you experience at other hotels.Genuine Expedia guest review
Good spot, close and easy acccess to main road..... nice city. good restaurants close by. stayed for a friends wedding. area is decent. train was really close byGenuine Expedia guest review
We only stayed one night at this motel. Typical room that met all our needs. Only complaints is the cleaning staff left old towels in the room and the hot tub did not work. Great location on MacLeod Trail. Staff were pleasant. It is too bad they renovated and replace the sink with one of lost above vanity one, too high to use.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Comfortable room, good breakfast, nice pool"
The room was nice and clean. Fridge and microwave. Continental breakfast has WAFFLES! Pool was a little cool, but nice. Close to numerous locations.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Complimentry Breakfast was very good."
We felt the hotel offered good value for the rate.Genuine Expedia guest review
Clean and nice place. I would recommend to friendsGenuine Expedia guest review
"decent hotel for sleeping"
We weren't in our room too often but when we were we noticed several ants around our room. the breakfast was disappointing the eggs weren't appetizing and the only other thing that was really appealing was the waffles. If you just need a place to sleep it was okay but if you plan on spending time in your room I wouldn't stay thereGenuine Expedia guest review
"comfortable for a quick stay"
Basic room, was clean and comfortable, can't ask for more for the price. Would stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
My room was comfortable but very close to the front desk which made it a bit noisy.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Don't let the outside deter you."
From the outside Econo Lodge South looks budgety, but it's deceptive. The rooms are clean and it's really quite nice. Outstanding service from staff. Breakfast is basic, awesome pool and hot tub and walking distance from Chinook mall. Lots of food options surrounding as well. I'll stay there again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"…my plan of 2 day stay turned into 4 days stay…."

"Very smokey non-smoking room"
Most of the staff were great. Room was adequately clean. Outdated room in poor condition. Second floor, no elevator, non-smoking room that was full of cigarette smoke from other rooms on a continuous basis. Have to have all my clothes cleaned again to get the stench out of them.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was really Good, no complaints. Stay was short, but Overall it provided everything i needed. Breakfast waffles were good. In fact a good assortment of foods for breakfast ThxGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent location for shopping!"
The hotel has had some upgrades but the building itself is old. The room had upgraded decor, the bed was super comfy and the breakfast was great. The location is fantastic. Very close to Heritage Park and Chinook Centre. Everything was right at our fingertips.Genuine Expedia guest review
"No Heat in Calgary????"
My 2 day stay at Econo Lodge was dissatisfying and disappointing. I had no heat in my room during my stay. The maintenance crew were unable to repair. The manager offered $50 voucher on my next stay. I confirmed that I would not be returning.Genuine Expedia guest review
We've stayed here a few times now. The staff is friendly and helpful. They clean your room when it suits you if you are there for several days. They happily provide utensils for late night microwaveable snacks ( when you run out to 7-11). Extra towels? Not a problem. Just want to chat in the lobby? Not a problem. I will be booking my next stay with […] them. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel for the price and location."
It has everything you want inside and in the area. No major issues, excellent bang for the buck.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I needed a room for one night - didn't want to rob the bank doing it. Comfortable bed, clean bathroom, and the staff were extremely helpful. Someone parked behind my vehicle and they paid for a cab to downtown. They did everything they could. The carpet in the room could use a good cleaning though.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Trying a different hotel"
This hotel is well worth the price. For me, it's not handy enough to the C-train to stay here often but I will try it a few more times. My room was a non-smoking but it still smelled of smoke, albeit masked with other smells. The heat controls were a little wierd although I was able to keep the temperature comfortable. There was no outside noise or […] noise from the other rooms. Lots of hot water and fairly quickly in the bathroom. The bed was comfortable. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice and comfortable room, but smelled like smoke"
The room was great, the breakfast was good. But we were on the second floor and the day in a half we were there it smelt like smoke all the way down the hall, in the entrance to our room and in our bathroom.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel with hot pool and spa."
The hotel is clean and smells good. You can go for a swim because there is a heated pool and even a spa. Aside from that there is a free breakfast which is so convenient because you do not have to go out.Genuine Expedia guest review
Ok rooms, unfriendly staffGenuine Hotels.com guest review
