visiting friends in Sarnia. Super 8 was the best rate. we arrived and the desk clerk was very friendly. I booked online and so the clerk had my receipt already printed. we were off to our room in no time flat.
our room was much smaller than other super 8's we've stayed in. it was clean but extremely dated. needs a coat of paint and while the bathroom was clean it is so old that the smell coming from the plumbing was very unpleasant.
as a place to crash for the night it wasn't bad.

Stayed August 2014, travelled with friends

Dear Carley M,

Thank you for your feed back in regards to your stay. Appreciate that. We are in a process of doing further renovations of the rooms such as painting the guest rooms along with the whole bathroom renovations. Hopefully it will be done soon in the near future. We have an exceptionally professional staff to provide a great customer service to our guest. Our housekeeping staff does an amazing job to clean the rooms. We will definitely take your concern into consideration.

We were making a trip by train to Toronto and the train left at 6-20am on a Sunday. We thought we'd get a motel room nearby (on the map it looked a lot closer between the trains station and the hotel) so we chose Super 8. We had stayed in that chain before, but never in Sarnia. We live in Michigan so it was easy to cross over the bridge from Port Huron, MI to Sarnia, Ontario. Just be aware that this hotel has NO ELEVATORS so if you are mobility challenged then you have to ask them for a room on the main floor. The cigarette smoke filled the hallways. I don't think Ontario has the no smoking policies that Michigan has. (In Michigan...there is no smoking indoors of any public building, restaurants, hotels, motels etc. Outside or in your car but not in any public building.

Parking was a little iffy. there were groups out in the parking lot all night long until we left at 5am

Inexpensive...yes, Staff was friendly but they were filled up so no main floor room All in all, it is a older motel that shows its age.

Room Tip: If you are handicapped...in any way...be sure to notify them when you book.

Dear valued Guest,

Thank you so much for your feed back. We always take every review on a positive note so we can improve the service and quality for our guest. I appreciate that you found our staff very friendly and customer service oriented. It is definitely not a brand new facility, but we are keeping it very well. All our furniture, art work, lighting , drapes and the total bedding is brand new. The hotel was 100% full. Sometime it becomes hard to control people who smoke in the hallways or near the hallways and they becomes an issue for other guest. BUT WE ALWAYS KEEP OUR ROOMS AND HALLWAYS SPOTLESSLY CLEAN FOR OUR GUEST. I apologize this inconvenience to you. Please visit us again, call me directly and I will personally assists you.

Thank you again for choosing Super 8 and we appreciate your business with us.

The Super 8 motel is on the main street in downtown Sarnia (Christina N.), which is a continuation of Lakeshore Rd. when travelling south. It is also a few blocks south of the exits from the East-West Highway 402. It is only a couple minutes walk from City Hall and the central business area. It is also 2-3 km from the Bluewater Bridge Park, which is located under the huge double bridge to the USA (Port Huron): highly recommended for photo ops. For convenience, there is a McDonald's right across Christina St. from the Super 8. You can't miss either when travelling along Christina. The room was clean and comfortable, with everything I needed. All the staff were great: friendly and helpful. All at a bargain rate when I booked through expedia.ca . The Super 8 staff told me that the rate would be even lower if I had booked directly through the motel (bypassing the expedia fee), but I have paid almost twice the expedia rate for similar motels (granted, in other cities).

We decide to try the Super 8 downtown while attending a concert and it looked on a map to be in walking distance which it was. Pleasantly surprised at the value (about $75 per night Inc tax). Friendly staff. Free parking, well maintained, clean, small fridge and microwave in room as well as flat screen TV which took a bit to figure out remotes. A bit dated but what do you really expect for the price. Lots of free parking. Restaurant (Waggs) attached next door which we did not try or even really notice till we left. Seemed to be well occupied but we had a very quiet stay. Basic continental breakfast. Could be a bit more well organized as it gets a bit crowded with more than one person. McDonalds right across the street and easy walk to other restaurants. No issues during our stay and cannot really think of anything negative during our stay of one night. Tip-2 washrooms in basement down stairs from lobby which was handy when our washroom was in use. Free WIFI.
Highly Recommend
