In June my dad was hospitalized at Saanich Peninsula Hospital. My son and I traveled to visit him and booked a room at the Super 8 motel ONLY because it is just a few blocks from the hospital. The room was very modest and it was not particularly clean but, in a near-emergency, it was acceptable. The two of us occupied the room for a few short hours. The breakfast was fine - nothing fancy. Parking was adequate.
Sadly, a short time after our first trip, I returned to Vancouver Island with other family members and we attended my dad's funeral. We chose to stay at the Super 8 again because of location (only). The room rate was also a factor also. I warned the uninitiated family members that the motel is old and in a state of disrepair. I don't think my warning was adequate - all five of my family members were surprised at the state of the motel. Perhaps the most upsetting aspect of the second stay is that when my sister asked someone at the front desk to print out a document that she planned to share at the memorial service, the front desk clerk told her that the printer was ONLY for use by the motel. The desk clerk knew what the document was and she would not print out my sister's contribution to the memorial service. This is beyond cheap. It shows a lack of compassion and respect for a guest.
Frankly, i think Super 8 should take a look at this motel and should insist on improvements if the owner wants to retain the branding. We have stayed at the Super 8 Aldergrove location and it is a much, much better motel.
