Paid for a different hotel

Posted Nov 17, 2017
Don't go. Used towels, hairy... and I mean LOTS of hair in the sheets and pillows. Floors not vacuumed for probably months... it was like a sandy beach in the floor. We checked out immediately and ended up paying at a hotel across the street. Never got a refund. This should not be a super 8. It is nothing like the super 8's we've stayed at. The back door didn't even have a lock. Shady and disgusting. Don't go. You've been warned!

Never any Super 8 again

Dirty sheets and filthy blankets. Food on carpet. Horrible experience with any motel ever. Should have seen reviews before going. My fault.

If cleanliness is important for you in a hotel, then definitely avoid this one. Carpets were filthy, lots of hair in the shower, and on the pillow, sock fluff on the sheets under the blanket etc. Missed the last ferry of the night and our usual places in Sidney were sold out so we took a chance here. Next time if the same happens we'd rather sleep in the car than revisit this Super 8. The only thing "Super" was in how super dirty it was. The receptionist at check in was fine and friendly for the 1 minute we interacted with him, so no complaints there.

Pros: Location. It's near the Patricia Bay Highway, close to the airport and ferry terminal. There is also a McDonalds across the street.
Cons: Lots...start with honesty in fees. Don't surcharge the customer. Daily garbage removal would be nice. So would replacing towels.
Location: Eat at McDonalds...then leave to go somewhere nice.
The price Expedia quoted wasn't the price they charged. This hotel wanted a premium price because it was Thanksgiving weekend in Canada. I don't mind paying a premium, but think that it's fair if I know that in advance. So, Expedia's at fault here too. The hotel offers value but don't expect much. Room garbage is cleaned every other day...used towels are treated the same way. There is one light in the room but fortunately it is on a long cord so it can be used as a desk light and bedside table light.

Will never stay there again.

Pros: Location
Cons: Cleanliness.
Location: Location is close to airport. Pub & restaurants nearby.
The place is filthy. Room and stairwell carpets have apparently not been cleaned in years. Bedspread was dirty, pillow smelly. Debris from previous occupants left under bed shows vacuuming not done thoroughly.

The room was dirty we stayed for 3 nights and we had to ask for more towels ect also the bathroom very got cleaned. The staff was good and changed our room due to the one we had smelt like smoke and we asked for a non smoking room.

It felt outdated

Posted Oct 7, 2017
I needed a hotel to stay for 1 night, as I was attending a wedding and found this place. The hotel felt outdated. The carpeting, bed sheets, the curtains and the tv look like they have not been replaced since they have opened. I don’t think I’ll be staying there again anytime soon.

Convenient last minute location

Posted Sep 30, 2017
The hotel was one of a few available in a convenient location when needed when my travel plans suddenly changed due to airline problems. The room was clean, the staff friendly but the hallway was dirty.
