Simply Modern Motel

5 out of 5
by from Airdrie
Posted Jan 27, 2017
Pros: Clean Linens, Keurig, hot shower, good pillows, easy swipe card, free parking, continental breakfast, provided bath robes, nice towels
Cons: Maybe just check on the shower taps in all the rooms.
Location: The location is on 16th ave, this has great access to the highway for banff and its only a ten minute drive to downtown.
Very affordable for the quality of room and the attentiveness of the staff. My room was very clean. In the night I discovered my shower tap wasn't working correctly. The night audit gladly gave me another room. He was very friendly.

Convenient motel close to Alberta Children's

Despite it being a long cab ride from the airport, this motel was conveniently located near where I needed to go. The breakfast was not fancy, but was what I would eat at home and I appreciated its inclusion. The room was nice with the sink outside the bathroom. It came with a hairdryer, plush robe, and mini fridge! Noisy with the highway but not so loud I couldn't sleep.

Nicely renovated. Room has all you need except a microwave. Bed is very comfortable. Could use brighter lighting above the vanity. If your looking for a great place to stay and don't want to spend a lot of money this is the place. Pleasantly surprised!

Check in the usual way then inform us that they don't have a water supply in every room but promise maintenance on its way , left for 1.5 hours to grab dinner & drinks . Back in the room still no water supply !!eventually check out right away & try the nearby hotel..

Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry that you were unhappy, however, we did have an unexpected emergency situation which required us to turn off the water for 2 hours. While we understand that you did not want to wait, the problem was resolved within the 2 hour time frame. Even though the room was used and we had to have our cleaning team refresh the room, we happily gave you a complete refund. It is unfortunate that you chose to check out without being able to experience what a stay at Centro is truly like. We are thankful that our team worked so hard to expedite the resolution of the inconvenience and appreciate our guests understanding and patience. We hope that if you travels bring you back to our wonderful city, that you will choose Centro Motel to provide your accommodation needs.

Stayed only one night. Room a bit small but typical for a motel of this era and design. Nicely renovated and very clean with modern touches in the room. Very good location on the trans Canada through Calgary and very affordable. Felt safe in the room and wireless worked very well. Friendly and helpful staff in the office. Overall, good value for a great location and a clean and comfortable modern motel. I recommend you give it a try.
