We like staying here. Have done so at least 4 times on our trips to Calgary. The hotel was previously just a regular 'old school' motel but has been renovated to be a classy boutique motel with little extra touches. The folded bathrobes on the bed are definitely something you don't see in most hotels. We like the decor, the...

This motel is about $99/night and the rooms are nicer than some $300+ hotels I have stayed in. All rooms are super clean and have been remodeled that would make you think you were in a suite in a 4 star hotel. Staff are excellent at any assistance needed. Free wifi, continental breakfast and free calls anywhere in North America....

Decent hotel for the price. Close to Market Mall. On a busy street and there was lots of noise at night making it somewhat difficult to have a good sleep. Comfortable beds and very clean. Modern decor and friendly staff.

I have now stayed at the Centro Motel 4 times at least! This last time, I got a sale price and when I went to check in, they had upgraded my room! Amazing!.

From the outside the motel looks very ordinary but well kept. However, the rooms are excellent. They are very clean, the bed was comfortable and the shower area large. The breakfast area is small but well stocked for a continental style breakfast. The location is away from downtown but convenient for the University, Olympic park and the west of the...
