I would rate this property a 4.5 stars, if Trip Advisor had that option. The folks at this Super 8 are working hard to make this a standout property in its class.
We stay in Abbotsford every time we come up here to visit family. It's a border town located in a breadbasket agriculture area that is slowly moving beyond its once a year airshow as the only serious offering for visitors.
The Super 8 is located a few minutes from the Sumas border crossing, a much faster way to get into Canada. It's on a busy intersection, but removed from the road. Before I extol its virtues, I'll get my quibbles out of the way: we could hear the folks above us romping around (a pet peeve of mine), the bathroom has been remodeled with excellent features, BUT is still pretty small with just one sink. They've allowed space for microwave and fridge outside the bathroom, which is nice, but if you've got a large family, finding somewhere with larger bathroom facilities might make more sense for you. Like many, many other establishments in various classes, this hotel/motel is still not using bulk in-shower containers for its shampoo/body washes, and the breakfast offerings are on throwaway plastic and paper plates. Come on, guys! Beyond just the tackiness of it, it's way un-environmentally friendly to throw all that stuff away every day.
OK that's out of the way. We chose this location for its free wifi and parking, indoor pool/hot tub (with an awesome waterside, no less), fitness room (nice selection of newer machines), and the free breakfast. All lived up to or exceeded our expectations. The newer remodeling was unexpected. The staff was friendly, and when I asked for an ironing board and iron, it was there in about 7 minutes. The room was very clean, and we were only here a few nights, so we did not use the on-site coin laundry, but what a great option!
As a side note, there is a drive through corn stand across the street that is not to be missed, and a Tim Horton's next door. Awesome!
Great value here and not a property to be passed up, if you are looking for something reasonable in the motel class. Good job, Super 8!
