Very Good - 4 out of 5

Cailin, Saskatoon, visiting MacEwan Hall Mon, 26 October 2015

Liked: Room was super clean and modern looking. We had no problems. It was really close to the show we were going to. I was glad we chose this hotel. We got to pretty much abandon our car and relax. The staff were all very nice and helpful, really could not have asked for better service.
Disliked: Our room was a little small but that isn't a big deal. When booking we were asked if we wanted smoking or non smoking. Now I know that smoking rooms don't exist anymore but I clicked smoking as a smoker and we were given a room on the 6th floor as far away from the elevator as possible, so it was annoying to be given the option then have the most inconvenient room given to us.

Poor - 1.4 out of 5

Norman Fri, 19 July 2019

Very poor

Liked: Nothing
Disliked: This is not a hotel. Beds were uncomfortable air con was noisy. There were no facilities to make tea/coffee etc. Rooms were not cleaned or beds made daily we had to ask for fresh towels after 3 days.Staff were rude and unhelpful. Hotel sites need to stop advertising this property as it?s basically s college dorm.We stayed for 9 out of 14 nights we booked. Shame on you Calgary University for charging what you do for what is less than basic accommodation. Shame on . For miss selling this property we were so disappointed spoiled our holiday .

yummy breakfast at the university

Liked: I have been at this hotel several times before as its location is very convenient, just inside the university. The breakfast recently was much better than in previous stay, there is now a tasty hot items selection, a belgian waffle maker and a good selection of cold pastries as well. We really enjoyed it. Also the rooms are very quiet. Despite being Stamped week we did not hear any fireworks or noise.
Disliked: it is hard to know if one has booked the dormitory style stay or the hotel style from the website. There is a charge for parking, while most hotels in Calgary offer free parking.
