Econo Lodge Inn & Suites University, Calgary, Canada
Cozy quiet place
I liked how quiet it was !! Plus we had a nice swimming pool and jacuzzi with color changing lights aaaall for ourselves! In the room, I liked specially 2 details, the accessory to use the computer in bed, and the full size mirror! I had an issue when checking in, but the front desk lady could fix it in 10min. There are plenty of restaurants around, we picked "Denny s to go" and they gave us discount for coming from the hotel, plus food was amazing! If I would improve something it would be the bedding, was not totally comfy because so many layers. I personally like a nice comforter better. But is good enough for one night. At the end, we enjoyed lots our stay :)

Good value for the price, nice staff, very clean
This is a very nice place to stay and the staff is excellent and accommodating. I was here for a hospital stay for a family member and I didn’t know how long I was going to be staying but they were very flexible. I highly recommend it.

Given the circumstances, terrible customer service
Convenient to train and good value for money. Continental breakfast was good! There was an incident while we were there which required the hotel to be evacuated at 2am - it was an issue with a faulty sprinkler line that is not the hotels fault. However, we were extremely unimpressed by the follow up. The fire department informed us what was happening and told us we could go back to our rooms. Staff did not come to speak to guests. There was no apology or even a mention of the incident at check out next day. The customer service at the Hampton Inn next door was better for the Econolodge guests than Econolodge. The night manager there let us in for coffee and warmth while we waited to return to our rooms. Checking in service was great but given the circumstances, customer service has a lot to make up for. Very comfy beds though!

As expected
Hotel was good for the price! One of the cleaners must have had long black hair as we found a few around the room. Continental breakfast was nothing fancy but as expected for EconoLodge

Comfortable but not the greatest service
Nice enough accommodations, comfortable bed, amenities, and nice breakfast included in the price. However, I found the service to be disorganized and a bit annoying. I went to the first building (of which there are 3, unknown to me) and tried to check in but was told I didn't have a reservation there, and to go to the next building and try there. So I went to the next building and was told they couldn't find a reservation, but they would take me over to the 3rd building. In the 3rd building, again I was told I didn't have a reservation, so I showed him my confirmation # and after searching for awhile, he finally found it. I'm sure their reservation systems must all be linked, so I'm not sure why the first, then 2nd guy didn't just give me the correct directions to start with? I found this poor service and kind of annoying when it's late and you just want to check in as easily as possible. But other than that incident, the stay was comfortable and decent for the price.
