“Good place to stay”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

Good place to stay, cheap room prices so it was good. There was a swimming pool, which was nice to cool off, but lacked privacy. The rooms were clean, and nice. Tv had a good selection. The wifi was horrible, it barely worked. It was very slow, and was very hard to get connection from the room. I told the front desk but they claimed that the wifi worked fine. Not very useful when you want to browse the internet. Besides that everything was good. The free breakfast was good, it was a small selection but still good. City is fairly accessible from hotel.

Thank you for stopping by , and letting us know about your stay. It is with comments that are fair and honest that we are able to improve our product.

Though we were happy to see you mostly had positive, we were disappointed that our wireless system failed you. I have our IT department looking into what was happening and moving forward we are confidant that it will be better

I wasn't going to leave a review but thought I had to share my experience.

I'm part of a larger group that attends Spruce Meadows each year. For the past several years we've always stayed at the Super 8 because of price, friendly staff and location. This past visit in June was, too say the least, disturbing. We witnessed management yelling, literally, at staff in the hallways and treating customers with little to no respect. Also in this last visit we noticed the rooms were not very clean and the complimentary breakfast is no where near where other Super 8s are. As a result our group, and many other Spruce Meadow groups, are moving our business elsewhere next year. It's unfortunate but with the attitudes of management lately, it seems very necessary.
