After reading the reviews, we had some concerns. I took note to ask questions and state our specific needs while making our reservations, ensuring we'd have a pleasant stay. Everything turned out great. We were very happy with our accommodations.
Lina was the weekend staff member that welcomed us. She was WONDERFUL! She answered all of our questions, and took us on a tour of the breakfast room (I recently was diagnosed with multiple food allergies, which basically eliminates all traditional breakfast foods) so that I could ensure there'd be something I could eat.
We had no issues with housekeeping, as mentioned in other reviews of this motel. They weren't the best, but they did come in every day and straighten up the bed and bathroom. Not once did they disturb us, as long as the 'do not disturb' sign was on the door handle. (Note to calm62 "Housekeeping is a problem" review ... our sign said 'do not disturb' on BOTH sides. Is it possible that, even though you turned the sign, you were still indicating you did not want housekeeping service?)
We had no issues with leaky toilets, broken light fixtures, or doors that wouldn't lock. We booked a comfortable King room on the 2nd floor overlooking the parking lot. It was usually quiet -- just the occasional noise from kids entering the next room, or the large group of Chinese visitors gathering for breakfast at 6:15 one morning. I brought my own pillow, thanks to a 'room hint' from another reviewer. We slept great! The bed was comfortable and spacious.
My only complaint has to do with getting out of the parking lot. It is very difficult to turn left onto Lougheed during busy traffic periods. Although there is a center lane to turn into, it is limited to one car-length. It is best to turn right to get out of the motel, then do a U-turn if you want to go west on Lougheed. less
