2/10 Poor

Never stay here if you need to sleep in the night.

2/10 Poor

We arrived at 11:30pm. The door was locked. I knocked the door several times, no answer. I called, and no answer as well. One of the customers that stay there tried to open the door well, and no answer. She told me that she has tried to come to the office for the past 30 minutes, but the door was locked and no one there. So we left and looked for another hotel.

Worst place to stay in all of Canada. See photos!
How can this business can even be allowed to obtain a business license to operate is beyond belief. The Olympia Motel is literally worse than a crack shack, and this is by no means an exaggeration. The room door can't open/close properly as the hinge is broken off the frame. It can't even close or lock properly. The bathroom mirror was broken and never got fixed, along with blown light bulbs. There is water still dripping from the ceiling and they simply covered it up with a white cloth. You can also see black mold on the ceiling . This is hazardous to humans and they didn't even bother repairing it! There are blood stains on the towel and I doubt it's even washed. Human hair was found on countertops and the toilet seat. I had asked for another room but the front desk person stated they were full, even though the parking lot was nowhere even close to being full. This was by far the worst place and no one should ever have to risk they health and personal safety just to save a few bucks. Go anywhere else in Calgary but here. You have to see the photos as they don't do enough justice
Hear on countertops and toilet seats
Water dripping from ceiling during the night. Black mold visible

Not worth the price
Light in the bathroom was not working and they knew about this since they ran a lamp to the bathroom. Check in and check out took longer than normal

Hands down the worst accommodation I have ever experienced. Simply awful and charged the full amount even after I refused to stay there and asked for a check out...broken door, holes in walls, bloodstains on the carpet, dirty...wouldn't stay here for hostel prices.

2/10 Poor

Perfect for meth users
In order to ensure door was closed into the suite, had to slam it shut. There was other peoples belongings in the dresser. Pillow had stray hairs and no pillow case when we first walked in. Hotel room above had constant stomping all times of night and people yelling in the room next to us. Strong smell of febreeze as you enter the room, was like a punch in the face that caused headaches.
