It was a nightmare, we ended up sleeping in the car. The room smelled like a mix between cigarettes and moth balls, and supposedly was a non-smoking room. The nobs on the air conditioner were purposefully taken off by the management, in every room, which disabled it from working. I am shocked that this hotel is even an option on Hotels.com, as it looks […] like something out of a bad horror movie. DO NOT STAY HERE! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A Place to stay on a cross country trip"
It was horrible. The security interior locks were broken and inoperable. Air Conditioner was falling apart with no knobs. Mold on carpet in front of the refrigerator. Lamp shades were broken with holes in them. Bedding was very comfortable. Very nice flat screen TV in room. Condition of hotel is poor... It is dated and dirty.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Better than expected"
Service was excellent.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wouldn't go back"
Hot tub & pool freezing, bed linens still wet upon arrival, shower faucet broken, CRT TV, remote filthy, old heating pipes coming out of wall.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Don't stay here unless you have no other choice."
Rooms are dirty, shower curtain moldy and quite smelly when showering, building in disrepair, beds barely made and no other cleaning done, beds were concave and hard.... Calgary was booked up so we were happy to get any room at all, but would never stay there again, or recommend it to anyone. We aren't a rich family who spoils ourselves with the best, […] but clean and comfortable is important. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Inexpensive, but savings are not worth it!"
My room was in a state of disrepair. Broken light fixtures, missing light bulbs and an AC that only worked as fan (It was warm in my room and I had crack open the windows to cool it down). A TV without a remote and trash baskets without bags. My room had a deck with uncleared trash. Only redeeming feature was the room price, daily room service and […] proximity to Banff-trail C-Train station & the university. There are other lodgings around this location worth considering and some more coming up. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"OK type hotel & not so great with facilities"
Guys, If you are in a rush and looking for some public commute, this hotel will work for you. Even though they have free internet, it never worked for me. I asked them and they said, if too many people are connecting there will be an internet connection issue. I stayed there for 9 days and I could connect to internet only one day. So, it is ok if you […] have to spend little extra and get a good hotel. The breakfast service was horrible. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel has good staff that try hard to keep it properly but the guests do not help probably because of the zone it is located, anyway, it looks like most of the hotel sin the area had the same problems.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to Train Station"
It was not supply of face towles. It was standard level considering the price.Genuine Expedia guest review
"The smelly awful room"
Smelly room, bathroom fan not working and falling out of the ceiling, no heat, TV remote not working. Five trips to the front desk wit assurances things would be fixed. No fixing the filthy carpet. very stained and not vacuumed in modern history. I said I wanted a new room and was told none were available. I insisted and another room was found and was […] somewhat in acceptable in that had recently been painted and was clean. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Very friendly and helpful service; would stay again. Very convenient location to the Banff Trail C-Train station.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Nothing fancy, but the indoor pool, location and great price, always put it high on my list. The room I stayed in (159) needed a repair to the bathroom door, as the knob was a bit loose.Genuine Expedia guest review
"It was okay but could have been better"
The proximity to the C-Train was great but that was the only positive. I had booked a king-sized bed room and the second I walked in, the carpet was disgusting, it look as if they had not cleaned it in weeks. Breakfast was the usual continental, nothing special but it served in a closet of a room. It was small and had barely any room to move around. […] To be quite honest, only book if you are truly desparate to stay in Motel Village. There are other options out there in this area. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Not bad hotel pretty goodGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"calgary hotel so we could see the Stampede"
The location of the hotel was perfect because of the proximity to the light rail system that took us downtown to Calgary and also out to the Stampede grounds. The hotel was comfortable, clean, and the only things that were minuses for our group were the size the pool [too small] and the hallways were stuffy. Otherwise, we enjoyed our stay at the ho […] tel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"One day stay with Kids"
No complaints. Excellent hotel. Spacious.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The maintenance of the room was below the expected minimum standard, and there was no lift available at site for carrying our luggage up to the room.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Convenient to the University"
I would say that room is convenient to both downtown and the University. It is right across from a Calgary transit train stop which made it really easy to get places. The room we had also had a microwave and refrigerator which made our stay much more pleasant. The room is on the low end of accommodations that I expect from a Ramada Limited. Also, even […] though the hotel is non-smoking our first room reeked of smoke. The second room we were given had heating that wouldn't stay hot but due to the time of year that we went, it was a problem we could live with. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Do not stay here. Pay $20 more and stay at a better place. The rooms are awful. The people who serve are mean.Genuine Expedia guest review
Value proposition is good for the purpose of the visit.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It seems like Ramada is not the name it used to be, Over all wasnt a bad place, but really wasnt spectacularGenuine Expedia guest review
"Its ok for the price"
Good breakfast and excellent location for easy move around with the trainGenuine Expedia guest review
This was the absolute worst place I've ever stayed in. First of all, the smell in the room was awful...airing the room out made in barely bearable. The floors were dirty and probably hadn't ever been vacuumed. I found hair on the towels and in the sheets which by the way were dingy and stained. Housekeeping left a garbage can with dirty soapy water […] and rags in the room for my whole stay and it's safe to say that the only "housekeeping" they ever did was to leave new towels and empty trash. (It's very likely that the rags were left by the previous guests...) The sheets were never changed even after I questioned front desk...they told me it's changed every few days or so...I was stuck in this hell for 8 days. The kitchen had blood stains on the floor. Housekeeping also unplugged our fridge which left all our food items to be spoiled. The list goes on and on. Oh, I almost forgot how housekeeping left the curtains wide open with our valuables on display for anyone to try to break-in and steal (we were on the ground level and the neighborhood was questionable). I brought all this to the front desk's attention but nothing was ever done about any of these issues other than leaving the curtains closed. I certainly wasn't expecting a 5 star hotel experience but this was the worst ever!! All I wanted was a decent and CLEAN room. If you are looking for a clean place to rest your head, stay far far away from here. PS. The sign in front of the hotel boasts "new comfy beds"...these folks sure have no problems with false advertising. One of the beds in my room was seriously concave in the middle...it should have been thrown out ages ago. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A simple older motel; a good deal for the price"
I stayed here for 12 nights while visiting friends in Calgary. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was clean and bright, although small. The continental breakfast was simple, but the eating area was small. The location, across from a stop on the LRT, was very convenient. There were many restauarants within walking distance.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Old and run down hotel"
Room was big but it was very very old and run down hotel. I paid closed to $105/night and it was totally not worth. With the condition of the hotel it should have charged half of that. Wifi never work!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Dirty and broken"
I would never recommend this hotel for anyone. The A/C was smashed and the heating panel was broken. The tv was 20 years old, the microwave looked just as old and the fridge was not plugged in and smelly. The walls were held together by scotch tape, and the linens/pillows were very dirty and stained. Although breakfast was included, it was very limited […] in what it offered. It was loud with noises of people and machines alike and for more than $120??? Never again Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"If you want old and broken stay here"
I am not against old at all, if it's kept up.the a/c didn't work, there weren't enough plug ins to have the coffee pot and the tv plugged in. the sheets and mattress pad didn't fit the bed. GROWLY AND NOISY BATHROOM FAN, we could also hear the neighbours fan. furniture was dusty. Behind the furniture was empty sugar, coffee wrappers. Broken towel bar. […] housekeeping forgot to leave us towels ! Upon checking out the clerk didn't ask us how our stay was, I wonder why Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Last Minute booking."
1st timer booking at the Ramada. Let's start off with the positives. Good location with 3-4 other hotels in walking distance. Just off the Trans Canada Hwy #1. Walking distance to Mahon Stadium for you CFL fans. Ok now the bad stuff. This place needs a serious rebuild.style reminds me of the 60's everything from the metal hand railing.The room #275 […] looked like it was in disrepair . light fixtures were lose.hanging off almost.You get the picture. Chairs arms that were damaged,and not fixed correctly.Room needs more electrical outlets.I counted 3 used,.With 2 of them close to the washroom.Not very good if your charging your laptop or cell if someone walks in. Oops sorry. The 1 outlet had a worn out plug.Plug would fall out . Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
will definitely not return the way we were received at the front desk they gave our room away that we booked approx. 1 month in advance to get a king bed, the night lady gave the room away! and we were told that the king bed at there hotel are smaller than the queen size so we were lucky to be upgraded!!!!! And no one does anything regarding guest coming […] in a 4 -5 am drunks yelling there head off waking everyone and the second night people were fighting till the cops came! so will not return a second time to RAMADA. we were told that we would be compensated but to no avail nothing had happened!

"Rude and unfriendly"
Walking in from the parkade, the door was open and a bird was in the hall. The hall was dirty and grungy. The staff made a big commotion (knowing I had a pet prior to check in) they made a big deal about it. They finally found me a room , no elevator access and I was alone with 3 kids, bags and a dog! I immediately canceled my reservation and went […] elsewhere! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We were NOT impressed. The windows (everywhere) were dirty. Only 1 face cloth for 2 people.the outside door safety latch had been ripped out of the door. the cable tv "coax" had been ripped out of the tv, hence no tv reception. i called the front desk, she said that no one could come until tomorrow. (I fixed it myself) at 09:40 (breakfast until 10am) […] there was no fruit, no coffee. there was some cereal available. the pool was NOT in working condition. So, to say the least we were not impressed at all with the establishment. As well, there were 20+ people in the parking partying loudly until the police were called and arrived about 3am.

"Find a better place"
They have left the hotel without any maintenance. Everything is old and malfunctioning. Breakfast was terrible and served in a very small, untidy room with lowest possible quality of food.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"not so great but only stayed over night"
We were only staying here on our way to Kamloops. I read the reviews before booking but I didn't think it was as bad as some said until I was actually there. It looked very dingy. The carpet was old and dirty. In our bathroom, the corner of the counter was broken and was glued together. The air conditioner was placed in the wall, but was not put in […] properly.

Room needs paint, repairs. Bathtub terrible. Linen stained. Eating area unclean. Waffle maker broken. Parking area sold off to stadium attendants. Fire in main building while I was there. Pool closed. Need I say more? Hotel is the Calgary unit near Mcmahon StadiumGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Kids Breakfast, Amenities un-available"
For a Ramada hotel we found that amenities were just un-available to us. The pool was closed for maintenance, our continental breakfast had apples, toast, and only 1 choice of cereal. Breakfast tables were dirty and chairs were full of crumbs. Overall it was an un-pleasant stay. Very dated rooms for the price. As a hotel employee elsewhere in Canada; […] we won't stay at this hotel again due to the claim of a pool and a breakfast, which they didn't live up to. I have stayed at other Ramadas in Canada and this one just doesn't impress me at all. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel is desperately in need of updating. Will not stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cheap but a bed"
Didn't appear to be any bed bugs but the overall hotel had an under maintained and dirty vibe. Had to get the room keys fixed both nights we stayed here. Half the items for breakfast weren't available after 8am. Would have rather stayed at the holiday inn express next door. In my opinion not worth $100+/night.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
the mattress need up dating . plug in by the half of it wasn't working .they need to some pay more attention to supplies for breakfast .some one continually tell they out of bread biscuits ..however the carpets where just replaced parking was good in there .Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Home away from home.. Not."
Basic hotel with minimum frills with basic necessities and central location. Don't be expecting scrumptious breakfast or inviting family amenities. It is priced right and is accessible from different directions in the city.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wouldn't Go Back"
Stuck in Calgary after a vehicle breakdown. This was the cheapest hotel in the area after BCAA ran out. Dirty and run down. Surprised Ramada would put their name on this property. Conveniently located close to restaurants, LRT, McMahon Stadium and U of Calgary.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Was good for a cheap hotel"
One staff member was a wench. Kinda wrecked it for the other staff members. Was reoccurring. Overall was a pretty decent hotel. Thin walls thoughGenuine Expedia guest review
"Don't Stay Here"
The room was dirty, the towels were dirty, the toilet was not attached to the floor and rocked when you sat on it. The hotel staff were not friendly or helpful. We were to stay for 3 nights but only stayed one. We paid for the other 2 nights but moved to the Travelodge. Definitely the worst hotel room we ever stayed in.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to SAIT"
Terrible cleanliness, beer bottles everywhere. Cigarette butts all over as well. Tons of rust in bathroom, windows clouded over.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to the University / McMahon Stadium"
Good location and economical for what you get. They have a pool for soaking in which is more than other motels at this price point.Genuine Expedia guest review
"easy to access"
nice quiet 3 day stay - quiet hotel - nice staff - I will stay here again .Genuine Expedia guest review
"Another good stay."
Busy mothers day visit. Another good stay. Staff carried elderly customers luggage, very nice. A little noise down the hall but owners dealt with it quickly. Good price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Old, tired, and no effort to improve"
I've stayed here a few times on previous business trips, but I don't think I will do so again. I only need a place to sleep, but every time I stay here things are worse. Things that need to be repaired (or at least cleaned) are still the same six months later. This is a very basic place to stay, but is becoming less attractive as time wears on.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Honestly in my opnion this hotel wasn't that bad the rooms were clean the staff were very friendly I can't really complain!! yes the hotel is a bit older but still in really good shape but over all experience I would stay there again !Genuine Hotels.com guest review
