Located on First Nations land, land of the indigenous people of Canada, this hotel is the newest building on the resort property of Tsuut’ina Nation. The separate casino and event space buildings were constructed prior to the hotel.
Winter and summer activities, like the Skyline Luge and ice skating, at Winsport are only about a 15-minute drive away from Grey Eagle. The downtown area, Calgary Stampede and the Calgary Zoo are also only a short drive away.
Families will love exploring the resort on one of the mountain bikes provided by the hotel and then ending the day’s adventure by splashing in the indoor pool. The onsite restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner and there is free (super-fast) Wi-Fi. The modern-designed guestrooms feature Smart TVs and plenty of outlets by the bed to charge devices. Families will love a stay at Grey Eagle Resort and Casino, especially if there is a live show of interest performing at the casino or event space next to the hotel.

Grey Eagle is a great destination for business or pleasure. the only issue right now is the road construction and how it affects getting in and out of the area. you may get lost or end up going in the opposite direction.
Grey Eagle is a very nice hotel, well kept, clean, friendly. Great entertainment there. Reasonable prices. We received a compilimentary upgrade, which was a nice surprise. And dog friendly is always a great bonus.
