I visited Calgary for one night and I only needed a very basic hotel as I wouldn't be spending much time there, so I decided to go with the Best Wester Village Park Inn.
I booked a room with two queen beds for $120CAD plus tax. The room was clean and comfortable. There wasn't much in it other than the two beds, a tv, desk, chair and a mini fridge. The bathroom was fairly small but clean.
When I checked in they told me the room I had was one bed and a pullout bed, but when I told them that was not what I booked they put me into the right room right away.
My stay was comfortable and I got exactly what I paid for; no frills or anything special, just a place to stay for the night.
The one thing I didn't like about this hotel was that the swimming pool was in the middle of the hotel, and it wasn't in a separate area, which meant that anyone with a room overlooking the pool (pretty much every one) could hear all of the pool sounds, so sleeping in was not really possible if anyone was in the pool.
We stayed here for 2 nights in August of 1993 during our road trip. I honestly don't remember our room so much other than it had 2 queen beds and was perfectly suitable for my parents, my sister and myself. So if you're planning to visit Calgary with kids, it's a good choice.
We didn't spend much time in the room as we arrived in the early evening on our first night and went out for dinner at Chianti's. The next day we got up early and spent the day at Drumheller visiting the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology, which is a good 140km outside of Calgary. The following morning we said our goodbyes to our hotel and explored Calgary's Heritage Park, which we loved.
Overall, this is a standard Best Western inn and a good choice for families doing a summer vacation road trip.
Unique Quality: The Village Park Inn is set up like an atrium where all the suites surround the lobby, restaurant, and indoor swimming pool. My sister and I thought that was pretty cool.
