I wasn't going to leave a review but thought I had to share my experience.

I'm part of a larger group that attends Spruce Meadows each year. For the past several years we've always stayed at the Super 8 because of price, friendly staff and location. This past visit in June was, too say the least, disturbing. We witnessed management yelling, literally, at staff in the hallways and treating customers with little to no respect. Also in this last visit we noticed the rooms were not very clean and the complimentary breakfast is no where near where other Super 8s are. As a result our group, and many other Spruce Meadow groups, are moving our business elsewhere next year. It's unfortunate but with the attitudes of management lately, it seems very necessary.

We live in Calgary but we were attending a wedding reception in DeWinton (Just south of the city). Thought it might be easier to just to stay the night rather than find our way home to north Calgary. The room was mediocre at best. We discovered though there was an air conditioning unit the controls were deactivated. It was stiflingly hot. We actually ended up sleeping in separate beds just to keep cool. We asked about a late check out and informed That one wasn't available. Or it was $69 immediately after 11. On a Monday morning I can hardly see why.
