    Default Decent/Cheap Hotel in Calgary near Rockyview Hospital?

    I have a friend from out of town, coming into Calgary for a surgery early July. He is coming with his wife and daughter, who will be in the hotel while he is recovering in the hospital for a few days. To make matters more challenging for him, his surgery is during the stampede, meaning higher hotel rates and no vacanccy in a lot of places.

    His surgery is at the Rockyview Hospital, so from what I know his best bet would be all the hotels off McCloud (sp) and Glenmore. If anyone has a better suggestion of a decent/fair priced hotel near the Rockyview hospital, it would be greatly appricaited. He is going to be in the hospital for several days so the closer the better as his wife will be driving in a foreign city during one of its most crowded times.

    All I can say is good luck. Most hotels in Calgary are already booked up during stampede, and have been for 5 months already.

    Thats what I told him but unfortuntely for him, he was just giving this surgery date this week. He's not picky, his family doesnt need a world class hotel. Just somewhere clean and comfortable that they can spend a few days waiting for him to recover, and close enough to visit regularily without breaking the bank.

    I did a online search but the results seemed messed up and every price was seriously jacked up.

    Any help would be greatly appricaited

    Look for a motel south of the hospital. Then she'll be driving 14 St, avoiding the traffic at Glenmore & Macleod.

    Or see if they can track down some relatives or family friends to stay with...trust me the hotel situation will be horrible at best.

    ^^that is a good idea, but I wasnt sure if there were any hotels/motels south down 14th within reasonable distance to the Rockyview

    Edit: I offered a place to stay but they are are the type of people that wont impose. They dont have any family or anyone like that in Calgary as wel.

    It's a little further south than you're looking..but it will be probably the cheapest. We stayed there while our house was being painted. Its about a 15 minute drive from there to Rockyview. It has a great pool and slide for any kids.

    I think if they don't "want to impose" then they will suffer..
