"Consistently Good Hotel"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
I have been a frequent guest for over 30 years and it has always been a pleasant stay. Customer service has always been great.

26-Apr-2022 Verified Review, stayed from Sun Apr 24 to Mon Apr 25 2022 at a C$72.99 average nightly rate.
"Uncomfortable"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
Terrible pillows, no towel bar, no bathroom fan, no dish cloth or tea towels, limited TV channels with no guide, very noisy neighbors and dirty outside room with old cigarette butts every where and very expensive for what we got. Pictures on website are not even close to the way the room was.

23-Aug-2020 Verified Review, stayed from Fri Aug 21 to Sun Aug 23 2020 at a C$92.99 average nightly rate.
"Front Desk Staff Disrespectful and Rude."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
I live in Ontario and thought I was doing something nice for my daughter and her boyfriend by reserving a room for the two of them at the Econo Lodge in Motel Village, N.W. Calgary, AB. only to have my daughter call me in tears because of the ignorant woman on the front desk. I called the 800# to lodge a complaint. the fellow I chatted with was very accommodating and tried to help defuse the situation but found that the woman was even very rude to him and he got no where with this person. I ended up having to book another room at the Ramada Inn (another one of this company's properties) so consequently I have been charged on my credit card for two rooms! I was supposed to speak with someone in billing to see if I could be reimbursed but got disconnected before I could speak with anyone. The experience at the Ramada was not much better and I will submit a review for them as well. Good luck to anyone who reserves a room and I guess the saying is true. YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR. AND SOMETIMES MORE!
