Good hotel although there was soap scum all over the tub and looked as though it's never been cleaned. I know there is coffee in the lobby but for me I enjoy waking up and making my own which there is no coffee pot in the room. Another thing I don't care for is how when somebody writes a review...

This hotel promised a lot as a place with affordable accommodations and hipster chic-zany water slide-pool-sauna-complimentary shuttle/bikes/longboards-wii. Ever the optimist, I was concerned that we would arrive and it would a dumpy place that only half delivered on any of these promises. Happily, this was not the case. Hotel Zed provided clean and comfortable accommodations. The staff were also very...

We stayed here for two nights in February. The staff were super friendly and accommodating. The little cafe was adorable attached to the lobby. You could play ping pong and listen to old records as well as try out their typewriters. I loved the pool, water slide and hot tub. I was it was open a bit later though. The...

Hotel Zed, the receptionist told us, was converted from a motel into a boutique hotel. We arrived late at night (11 pm) and the receptionist was very helpful, empathetic, and genuine, and listened to us attentively. The main hotel lobby was lovely as well, and has a vinyl player and a library of records for you to listen to; the...

Had the opportunity to stay at Hotel Zed recently for Valentine's Night. The hotel has done a great job with throwback stylin' to 60's and 70's kitsch.

What a place! We arrived to a very groovy looking motel. Checked in at a busy reception (sort of sits in the onsite cafe) and there was free coffee making facilities and typewriters to have a play on! Our room was all the way at the end, but this made it quiet and away from the busier main road at...

Room was spotless, beds very comfortable, great value and very cute. Windows and doors do not seal tightly so every sound from the exterior walkway to the highway seemed to make in into our room.

Hey TravelsalotCalgary. Thanks for taking the time to review us! We are so happy you found the room in top shape and comfortable. Appreciate your comments about the doors not sealing tight.

My wife and I booked 4 nights over the holidays and absolutely loved our stay at the Hotel Zed. Since we have a car, we didn't mind staying just outside the downtown core (5-10 minute cab or free shuttle at the hotel) and it's also conveniently located across the street from a mall and health food store for amenities.
