"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

"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
"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
"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

"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

"No TV or cable; weird people hanging around area"
I wouldn't evervstay at this hotel againGenuine Expedia guest review
Response by Econo Lodge South I am really surprised to read your comment about not having a TV in the room that you stayed in at our Hotel. Unfortunately that statement is not correct at all. Actually, all rooms have TVs. As a matter of fact we have Shaw Cable on all our TVs with 52 channels. So with all due respect, I would kindly request that you withdraw your statement as it is really not true. I would be more than happy to address any other issues that you may with our property
"Close and convenient to mall and restaurants."
Was moved from one suite to another and the second suite the bed was old and hard on the back. The first suite had a beautiful king size pillow top mattress.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not the best or worst I've ever stayed at."
If you are looking for value priced accomodation on McCleod Trail in Calgary this is it. Nothing fancy, a little older but ok. It included a sparse continental breakfast offering in the rate. There was a widescreen TV in the room but the hotel doesn't suscribe to any HD channels so the standard definition picture made every body look fat and distorted. […] It was hard on the eyes watching after a while. The bed was comfortable and the rooms clean. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"ok for what i pay"
good continental breakfast , bad smoking smell on a non smoking room , sheeets are very rough, and the bathtub was nastyGenuine Expedia guest review
I was disappointed with my stay here. I stayed for two nights and the room was soooo hot I couldn't sleep...so didn't get much sleep at all. I opened the window and the temp outside was -12C but cstill did not manage to cool off the room as the heat just kept running! I was also not comfortable sleeping with the window open. Also..the room not made […] up by 3.30pm the second day and I had to call for housekeeping...to be told mthat they may not come until 4.30pm...which I think is very late. I had been gone most of the day and needed to shower and rest...but had to wait for housekeeping to come. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to the medical centre we had to use."
