“Very enjoyable stay”
Reviewed 8 April 2011

Was most impressed with this Super 8 Motel. Staff are very efficient, knowledgeable and service was excellent. The hotel is very clean and very well maintained. Continental breakfast included in room rate and is definitely above average with lots of great and healthy choices. Quiet and desirable location in Shawnessy with shopping, restaurants and a beautiful YMCA all within walking distance. Easy access off the freeway.
Really enjoyed our stay here and would definitely stay again.

We hosted our son's 9th birthday pool party at the Super 8 Motel. I had 'won' the pool party in a charity golf tournament silent auction and wasn't sure what to expect prior to the party. What a wonderful surprise! The staff were very helpful and accommodating. Along with the pool, they supplied a room adjacent to the pool for the pizza and cake. The party room was spacious, clean and equipped with a TV. Our son and his friends loved the water slide and the parents were very impressed with the 'party' room. We will definitely be back!!

Decent Hotel, Nothing terribly wrong with it, accept the pool was out of order and the noise was what caused me to rate this hotel so poor. The noise in the morning was so loud. Someone in the next room sneezed and it sounded like they were in our room. You can hear every conversation and activity in the rooms next to you. If you want to sleep in and relax I recommended a stay somewhere else. If you are just passing through on business, they have a good continental breakfast and the front desk staff is great.

This Super 8 is amazing. The staff were very courteous and friendly, the room was great and cleaner than most five star hotels. It was quiet, comfortable and a great location. This Super 8 met and exceeded our expectations...likely the best Super 8 in the country.

We just stayed at this hotel. For a total of 1/2 hour. Found drugs in the room. When we asked to speak to the manager the girl at the front desk gave us his business card. Called the cell number no answer. We do a lot of traveling for our jobs and the cleanliness of this room was a concern. My husband went down again to the front desk and said he wanted to speak with the manager. I don't know what the girl said to the manager, but about 15 minutes later 6 RCMP officers showed up at our door. Angry and treating us like we had done something wrong. I showed them the narcotics i had found they did not care what so ever. Makes me wonder if there is some sort of deal going on be between the manager and officers of the law. We were asked to leave. So long story short. Super 8 condones drug use in there hotel. RCMP Calgary condones this behavior.

We were in town for a wedding & signed up for their Romantic week-end pkg. Wine, Movie Tickets, Wonderful Italian Dinner @ La Piccola Napoli and added extra days.
The Manager Ed and Staff went way above the call to arrange everything to optimize the experience.
Complete, well stocked, nutritious Continental Breakfast with friendly helpful staff.
Many restaurants, shopping within a block, I honestly don't know how they could have done a better job of making our stay more wonderful.

We stayed here when hardwood floors beoing refinished and we picked this hotel as close to our house and had waterslide hottub and free breakfast. We had 2 ajoining rooms on the second floor and when people on third floor would shower sinks in bathroom would fill with dirty water. Both toilets plugged. I laughed out loud when I went to front desk to explain problems and nice young lady behind desk gave me one of a pile of plungers behind front desk. Major plumbing problems apparently. Breakfast was stale and there was a large dog, running free (!) in the breakfast room one day. Pools closed for maintainance second day we were there. Common areas dirty and outdated. Trays of breakfast food still on floor in hallway in evenings.

Stayed January 2009, travelled with family
