A terrible stay, old building and cheap place. The residents are too loud and noisy, and the worst part that this place has a very poor customer service. please spread the word about this hotel, donot encourage such bad business!

I stayed here for 5 nights while on business in Calgary. The hotel is quite old and in serious need of a major reno. I found the hotel dark and dreary, with paper this walls. They are presently installing new but dull grey tiles in the lobby - while new I struggle to see how this will help lighten things...

We stayed here because it was inexpenisive on Priceline - well I will remember next time that you get what you pay for. Entire hotel smells like cigarettes, overall hotel is run down and dated, our room had the same cigarette smell that was clearly trying to be covered by harsh cleaning product smells. Overall cleanliness of the suite wasn't...

Dear CM044, Thank you for choosing our property while in Calgary. Our 201 room property has been smoke-free for several years and all carpets changed since the policy was implemented. Seemingly the smell you experienced came from neighboring hotel guests not abiding by hotel policy. We are disappointed and sorry to learn you felt the room was not clean and...

Thought I would give this hotel a chance as it was close to where I had to do business. Booked online and specifically asked not to be close to an elevator or vending machine. Even called to verify. Upon finding the room, it was right beside the elevator. Non smoking was requested and the room reeked of stale smoke. I...

I have been staying at this hotel off and on more than three years and it is going downhill. Two weeks in a row my room key has not worked three times so I had to go back down to get another. The TV's are sporadic on when they work. The elevators are slow. I had a hair on one...

Dear BradJames1960: Thank you for using our downtown Hotel through the years; evidently happy with our location, value and presumably service until recent stays. It is an inconvenience to arrive at your room only to find out your room key does not work and understandably an annoyance if the incident recurs. We apologize for the extra trips to our Front...

I've been staying at the Ramada for many years, with my employment and have never had any serious problems. The Ramada is an older building, but it is certainly adequate for everything you need downtown. Located on 8th Avenue, it is a short walk to Stephen Avenue and where I had to go for work in TD Square. The rooms...

I have never been so utterly disappointed in a hotel. This hotel is honestly the worst hotel to deal with as their customer service skills are awful.
