8.2.Very Good.
  • 2.0.Poor

    I would not recommend this place to a nun, a priest or my worst enemy. The host barely speaks English, does not have any manners & does not have a concept of what boundaries & privacy means here in North America. She was constantly nagging us while we stayed there & did not provide appropriate instructions as to what the rules of the hotel were (if you can call it a hotel, it's more like a house). Amenities were incredibly minimal for the high prices they charge, hell, there wasn't even toothpaste, soap or anything like that in the room; complimentary or otherwise. The lady kept telling me to do a cash deal with her instead of going through Travelocity so that they could avoid paying fees & taxes. Very unprofessional & sketchy people. DO NOT STAY HERE if you care about having a positive experience. Luis Rodriguez

  • 4.0.Fair

    We knew something was amiss when the lady of the house asked us to take off our shoes at the door. The Queen room is tiny and they had to wheel in portable air conditioner on a hot summer’s day.. The owners are very sweet and tried to make us comfortable but it was too much of an amateur operation. This is a b&b, not a hotel. We ended up forfeiting our advance payment and staying elsewhere.

    spacious room in a lovely house

    John and Kim were lovely and hospitable, offering refreshment upon arrival and assuring that we knew the wifi password, etc. The house was beautifully refinished and the room was spacious. We left for the airport too early to comment on the continental breakfast. The only downside was that the "river view" from the balcony was over several lanes of traffic and that traffic was somewhat disruptive in the early hours of the morning. If you are a heavy sleeper, you'll be fine.

    Kim and John were such amazing hosts. Felt like having a mom and dad. Always asked if my wife and I were fine. Always wanted us to eat. It was a great 5 days. Well kept and clean house in a quiet area that is close to many areas of interest. Definitely coming back the next time I am in yyc. They even borrowed us bicycles for the week to get around. God bless them

    Great

    Our hosts Kim and John were great. They gave us ideas for visiting the City of Calgary. Ideally located for visiting center of town. The room was big with a balcony, view of the river and very clean. Breakfast was included every morning. We had a fridge in the room and could use their microwave. We would highly recommande staying at this Inn.

    Hospitable family

    Had a great stay inspite of the situation with Covid-19. Family was very accommodating. Room was nice and large. Liked having a fireplace. Quiet room even though it faced a major road.

    The hosts were very congenial. John cooked us a nice Denver omelette for breakfast. Room was clean, big, and the bed was comfortable. The inn is classy, with beautiful woodwork. Thanks very much, John and Kim!
