I usually stay at HIX...it's generally good value for the money and I like the fact the hotels are owned by the chain, not individual owners. This keeps things consistent, so I always know what to expect. That said, though, I know to expect the same lackluster breakfast - always the same old, same old...fake omelet with plastic cheese, powdered scrambled eggs, bacon so thin you can see through it, dry muffins and bagels. A little switch-up now and then would definitely be appreciated especially when staying for multiple days. But at least you can get toast and coffee, if nothing else.
The hotel itself is clean, although getting a little tired now. Beds and bedding are comfy and I always sleep well. Bathrooms are clean and have good supply of towels. Air conditioning/heat always works. The sofa looked like it had recently been recovered, but the easy chairs were a bit nasty, especially on the arms where people put their hands - grubby. There was also a sopping wet puddle on the carpet in front of the fridge. The one noticeable item was lack of power outlets in the bedroom area. I had to unplug the alarm clock to charge my phone, but I use the phone for an alarm clock so it was okay. A power bar on the night table would be handy as my roommate also needed to charge her phone.
All in all, though, the rooms are good, the beds are comfy, the price is acceptable, there's a breakfast, which is good value for families, and you always know what to expect.

As soon as you walk in the door, the front desk welcomes you with a friendly greeting.
Breakfast was great, my husband has a special diet, lots of choices, best breakfast (hot and cold) for him in a hotel for a long time.
Nice clean, spacious rooms, good towels, quiet hotel.
Will always go back, great value.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Budwiser59 nice surprize
Looked for a hotel in the SW of Calgary as we were going there for a wedding. Most hotels quoted me prices 40-30% higher than what was on their web site. And even a couple I called answered for another location from the hotel. One quote $195 and was posted $130 on web site. The Holiday Inn Express on Macleod Trail S had a very friendly gal answer my call and was very helpful. So we decide to book there.
Price was reasonable, room was very clean, even had a microwave. the continental breakfast was a big surprize, as it had more food then expected. Bacon, eggs, cereal, toast, muffins, coffee, tea, juice, etc....
Pool looked small, and with a lot of children we decided not to use it. But looked clean.
Only down side is you can hear the people next door when they use the washroom. So close your bathroom door and it will lessen the noise.
I like staying in a place that has helpful friendly staff.

This has been the best Hotel I have stayed in. Despite having the water cut off for the evening the stay was amazing. We went to a Bed and breakfast after our stay here and wished we did not leave the Holiday Inn. The breakfast was better here than the B&B, the room was larger, more cleanly and better atmosphere.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by RPN1 Very nice suite --even without the water for an evening
we checked in to be told that the water would be turned off the next day from 8 pm to 5 in the morning. Even with this glitch i would reccommend this hotel and would definately stay here again.
