I had a junior suite at this Super 8 and it was nicely appointed with fridge, microwave, coffee maker etc as well as a king-size bed in a separate bedroom. The living area & the bedroom featured a flat-screen TV. Conveniently located off the highway with breakfast included and a pool & hot-tub on site.

We enjoyed our stay at Super 8. We found it a bit difficult to get to it from the highway. Would be nice to have more signs to tell us where to turn in order to get to Super 8.

$183 was a lot to pay for an economy hotel. Water slide was fun, but towels had to be picked up at the front desk. Wifi was terrible and I would skip the morning breakfast....my son and I both were I'll later that day.

Great hotel! We normally do not stay a budget hotels,but this one is certainly well above the norm. The rooms, breakfast, guest laundry, and service were exceptional. Would certainly stay here again. It is a great stop as you are entering Nova Scotia.

The breakfast was amazing. You could even make your own waffles. Had toast, eggs, sausage, juices, muffins, etc, etc. The pool was a nice touch. The room was spacious and very clean. The staff were friendly. It is a bit close to the highway so you can faintly hear the big rigs sometimes. Wasn't enough to stop us from sleeping,... More

Wonderful staff. They are accommodating about 25 seniors whose residence was recently flooded. Great to see such great community spirit.

A manager came out and told me there were no guarantees on what room we get... More

We spend the weekend at this great hotel. Breakfast was great and the pool was a nice change to the traditional hotel pool. Large water slide and a little wet zone. The room was large and clean. We all slept well after a day of watching soccer.
