Got "last room". For the price I paid, it should have had a jacuzzi tub in the room! Room was clean and staff were friendly but quality was aweful.

Very bad staff, they are trying to extract the money from you. Unnecessarily they are charging. Just to save few dollars people enter into the hotel...The family is running the business.
In the front desk night shift guy (Son)says you can check out late...when you checked out late the shift will change and the other guy (Mother) will charge you double, she charged extra one more day. She took the credit card and lost it. May be she has stolen the credit card and told that she has given it to me. I had to cancell the credit card.

Every 5 minutes they come and knock your door. Never ever go to this perticuler hotel.

Breakfast is horrible.Found fungus in the old dry bread. No fruits, no yogurt. You will find only dry old stock bread and butter.

Totally very bad experience and lost the money....this vacation is not relaxasation it is nightmare!!!

Room Tip: Never go to save few dollars,

When booking my 14 day vacation, I was sure that Super 8 was a chain I could rely on. Sadly it has greatly let me down, at multiple locations.

Super 8 Hinton booked myself and my family (wife & 3 kids) into a smoking room and there was no other room available. They would not let us cancel it when we arrived so we decided to "tough" it out. However the room smelt worse than a sports arena smoking room - within a few minutes two of my child were having trouble breathing - it was unhealthy and unsanitary.

The front desk refused to compensate us and we left, having to pay for a room we did not use. We found an equal hotel nearby for the exact same rate and were treated like we mattered, the room was clean & the staff was awesome.

If you are staying in Hinton, avoid this Super 8 !!!

The front desk lady was exceptionally helpful. The pool and hot tub were an added bonus for us during our long drive, and the kids loved it. The breakfast was the best one yet! Muffins, Bagels, Cereal, Donutes, Toast, Coffee, Tea, Juice, Etc! That was great!
The room was also very clean, and we were able to request a room with a work station for my husband which was useful because there was wireless internet too.
Overall, i wound come back for sure

Pay a few bucks more and stay at a hotel that has the advertised Super 8 Amenities and that are working.

The Pool and whirlpool were closed. - Staff explanation was that someone who didn’t shower went into the pool and contaminated it and that it needs to be drained. No apologies or discount, just that’s the way it is.

Needless to say a 3 year old looking forward to getting out of the car from a long drive didn’t get rewarded. We then decided to get an in room movie, but again the 8 does not offer movies, but they advertise “Guestrooms feature cable/satellite TV with premium TV channel(s).”

The stay was a continual disappointment from being placed in a smoking room and we don’t smoke. The Key Room doors didn’t shut properly. You had to swipe the key in the door lock to close the door to the room. The Complimentary Breakfast was a joke; no fruit, not yogurt, just bread, cold cereal and muffins.

Next time I’ll pay a couple dollars more and stay at the Holiday Inn Express.

It is a bit at the outskirts of Hinton, but there are restaurants nearby and most deliver for an additional fee usually $3. If you are in the mood for pizza, I definitely recommend Gus' Pizza over Boston Pizza. They are great tasting and reasonably priced.
