"Clean, comfortable stay. A great value."
Friendly and helpful staff. Room was very clean and comfortable. Hotel looks nice, fresh, and renovated. Bed was comfortable, with premium sheets. Wifi works great, and I enjoyed the free breakfast. It had a good variety of items, not just toast and cereal, but also bagels, fruit, hard boiled eggs, waffles, pastries, and other things. Overall, this was an excellent bargain, and I would definitely stay again.

"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.

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.

"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.

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.

The room was more or less fine. It sort of smelled funny when we first walked in, like a weird cleaning solvent or something. The air conditioning was quite wimpy. We left it on all night and I was still hot in the morning. It also seemed like breakfast shut down really early for a weekend

I am sorry to hear about your problems with the air conditioning. Unfortunately, we do shut off the cold air as it is unnecessary during the winter season. We always have fans at the desk if you feel the room is warmer than you would like. Thank you again for your comments, and I hope we can be your choice for accommodations again.

"Hotel was adequate booking/check in was unpleasant"
When booking this hotel on Expedia, the payment options I was given was Credit/Debit card. I entered my Visa Debit card info. All week long I received emails from Expedia reminding of my upcoming trip. When I arrived at the hotel I was informed by the check-in clerk that my room had not been booked because they don't accept debit cards for booking. He knew my name so they clearly had my info yet neither Expedia nor the hotel contacted me about the booking info. The gentlemen smugly informed me that they do indeed have rooms available for me but I would not be receiving the nonrefundable rate I had thought I had booked. Meaning the room cost $15 more than what I had originally agreed to pay on Expedia. I asked why I was not contacted and all he would say is that it's not the hotels fault it's Expedia's. He also informed me I can pay with debit, just can't book. Since the hotel is able to provide the info that they take a $200 deposit to book a room, they should probably also clarify their booking practices. If it hadn't been late I would have stayed at any other hotel. The hotel itself was satisfactory. Clean room. Adequate continental breakfast.

The room had lots of space but it had a moldy odor, the curtains would not close properly and the mattress was lumpy. It was definitely an economy room, with pressed board inner doors, spotty carpet with bare spots and botched cleaning attempts, and burlap-looking curtains, but not an economy price. The staff was the best part of the visit; very friendly and accommodating.

"Good location, Bad experience"
We for only two nights... At first we thought it was great, the staff was friendly and the room was decent, outdated but decent. The morning after our first night I had red rash like marks on our arms and legs. I thought it was from the type of detergent used on the bedding because I have fairly sensitive skin. The next morning I awoke and found a small black/brown bug crawling in the bed. Disgusted we immediately packed and left. After our stay, I went through their hotel reviews again and saw that another individual found bed bugs in their bed and the concierge confirmed it. I will never stay at this location again.

"Stay Away unless your desperate."
Where do I start??? Behind the Hotel there is a railway car storage that gets active after 9 Pm and doesn't stop till around 12 Am, cars crashing into each other for hook ups and then goes. the heating duck was falling apart and the cover was half on.a chunk of the bathroom door was ripped off, the curtains weren't level and hard to close and bathroom cocking job looks like a 12 year old kid did it. the carpets weren't very clean so i left some pebbles around to see how they vacuumed and they didn't go out of their was to do the whole carpet just what was easy for them. the phone was dirty and labeled the wrong room number. Breakfast included??? What a joke, cereal in a Styrofoam bowl with plastic spoon or a English muffin complimented with an apple or orange.

"Old and unsafe"
The room is old and run down. Stained carpets. The windows do not have locks and can be easily slide open from outside. Does not make you feel safe. Breakfast was very basic. No yogurt. Only syrup for waffles nothing else. It does have toast or begals and basic apple or oranges. Juice and coffee. We went because we needed to be at the hospital at 7am and live out of town. Wouldn't recommend it or stay again.
