After visiting Joggins Cliffs, this was a convenient place for us to stay before heading on. The hotel was very clean - desk service was quick and friendly! We enjoyed the pool, slide and hot tub - was a perfect place for us to stay for a night.

Great stay, great staff, great pool area with a large waterslide. Hot tub is great! Only small issues are the guest computer is very limited and doesn't have a printer. If you want something printed you have to save it, and email it to the front desk. Minor really. And no waffle maker, which several of the other Super8's have... More

Thank you for your review. Our 2 self-serve waffle makers are sitting in between the waffle batter on the large counter in the breakfast bar area. We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay with us. The waterslide is great for the whole family. For the guest computer we do not have a printer attached you do need to... More

Nice pool area just play. The hotel was quiet. And it's great that it allows dogs! Our puppy loved it there! Breakfast was pretty good. The ham and sausage were over cooked so they were a bit tough, but other than that all was great! Friendly staff, clean hotel! We were staying for a wedding. And they made it easy... More

Great hotel at a very reasonable price; only negative comment would be that the sign indicating road to hotel be placed in a more noticeable area; missed it completely the first time. The sign needs to be bigger and higher so you can see it.

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.
