Excellent for the price

It was really nice. The only problem we had was that the windows didn't have any blackout blinds. That's minor, because everything else was excellent.

Clean small hotel

Pros: cleanliness
Cons: beds and pillows too soft
Location: Not much to do around hotel, but more to do after 15 minutes of walking distance. Neighborhood looked kind of empty and vacant around hotel.
Overall it was fine. We stayed one night. Pros: free breakfast, clean room, clean bathroom, good customer service, fast check in/check out. Con: pillow and bed too soft, location is alright - kind of on the empty side of Calgary (not much people, more industrial)
