1/5 Terrible

Traveled with group
Sad face IconDisliked: Staff & service
Poor customer service, I booked for 4 adults and 1 child and they offer an upgrade that cost 55 more dollars for family suite 1 bunk bed and 1 queen bed, without AC and I paid 168$ for just several hours that we stayed. I didn’t said yes for an upgrade and even Email them that I would like to stick to the original priced that I book for just 113$. I will never stay in this HI Calgary again.😞
