After a long flight from the Netherlands we didn't like to phone the hotel for the three shuttle bus and decided to go by a regular taxi. Just for a couple of km's we had to pay CAD 25,-
The hotel looked (a little bit) outdated, didn't smell too fresh and the rooms were rather small.
Located outside the city you 'only' can walk around and also in the hotel is not much to do. You may understand we were not very satisfied.
You may understand we were not very satisfied.
Breakfast (buffet) was good, but rather expensive.
We took the free shuttle bus back to the airport to pick up our rental car.
Be aware, they do have just one shuttle bus and it may take some time before you can leave to the airport.
The Travelodge is named Hotel but was Motel before and isn't worth the name Hotel.
We went to Calgary for the Stampede and asked a Hotel at our travelagent and they had only this one. It was perfect they said. Well it wasn't. It was to far from the center, nothing to do and every day with C -train to the center wich cost 2 dollars each time.
So if you rent a camper then it's okay there is Travelodge perfect for. Also waiting for the shuttle bus, beware they have only 1 bus from the airport it can take up to 1 hour and some people get into a fight to be the first. You have to phone them from the airport otherwise they let you wait untill last.
When I stayed here I was arriving in Calgary at 12:30 am and exhausted. The unique feature was a prompt and free shuttle service from the hotel. That is what I appreciated the most.
The actual room was modest but done the job, I had to be up again at 6 am. I am never sure about getting a room for such a short period but it's amazing what even 3 or 4 hours of sleep will do for you when your traveling!!
Could anyone advise if the travelodge on Sunridge Blvd (Calgary)is ideally located for an overnight stop before heading to Banff. Also Travelodge on St Edwards Drive Richmond (Vancouver) is near enough to Vancouver Int Airport. One more question, Anyone able to help I have looked to stay at Irwins Mountain Inn on Banff Ave, (Banff) is this central.
why are you staying in Calgary overnight first? Is it a late arrival? There are bus charters that normally run until 2200 or so right to Banff. If you need to stay there, most of the ones near the airport have their own shuttles, and I am sure they have one as well. You can check the banff airporter, Rocky mountain sky shuttle, or sundog tours.
TL in Vancouver is close as well, and they do have a shuttle.
Dont know Irwins for sure, but if its on Banff ave, it should be ok..if its on the end, then it will be a good 15 minute walk..email the hotel and they should let you know.
anything else just let me know, you can email me directly for more q's if you want, as I dont check the forums to often.
The Travelodge looks like it's not too far from the airport
Irwin's Mountain Inn is a fair distance from the centre of Banff, but not bad. If the weather is good, it would be a nice walk. It would take you about 20 minutes to walk to the main part of town.
Thankyou so much for your help.
