We stayed at the Super 8 in Golden over the Easter weekend. We were travelling to Kelowna with our 3 children (ages 13, 11 and 9) and our dog (a Havanese/miniature poodle cross). We left Calgary after work on the Wednesday before Easter and drove to Golden (and into a big spring snow storm). We were very glad to have pre-booked a room given that the road conditions were so bad. Although the front desk staff was slow to get us checked in, this was likely due to the number of people who had stopped to enquire about a room due to the weather.
Having read other reviews on Trip Advisor, I requested a room at the back of the motel. Our room (# 205) was large and clean with a separate bedroom (2 queensize beds), full kitchen and a double hide-a-bed. I wish I'd known about the kitchen, as I would have brought our own breakfast stuff (we ended up at the Tim Horton's just down the road). The bathroom was small but adequate (and clean), lots of hot water, although I agree that the towels are thin and the toiletries are limited. But hey, what do you expect at a budget motel? The price was excellent and it was one of the only places that would accept a pet.
The man at the front desk in the morning was very helpful and very friendly. We did not take advantage of the free breakfast (from what we saw it was muffins and toast and coffee). The motel seemed to be full when we left in the morning, but we did not hear any noise during the night either from the highway or the other guests (there were LOTS of people with dogs, and we didn't hear anything).
We had dinner at the restaurant in the hotel next door (I forget the name, something like "ABC Country" it was recommended by the gal at the front desk of the Super 8) and it was good value for the money (not the best meal I've ever had, but decent).
Note also that the "pool" is basically a big bathtub off of the front desk; we did not use it but we weren't tempted to either!
I would definitely stay here again on my way to/from the BC interior.
