Stayed here with family as it was pre-negotiated through my company while I was at a conference. When booking I asked if the pool was working- to which they said "Yes, it is." Got to the hotel the next week and found the pool to be closed. Asked at front desk and they said they had been having issues last week. Our kids were very disappointed. This seems to be a common occurrence, according to Trip Advisor. We took the room since we still needed somewhere to stay. Room was nice and hotel was otherwise reasonably maintained and VERY clean, to be fair. Lots of hot water, pressure hit and miss. TV had lots of channels and room temperature was well regulated. Breakfast was nice and well stocked. Fair size parking lot. TONS of shopping nearby, Wal-Mart is on their front lawn. Hotel staff were very knowledgeable about the area and attractions. Check-out was challenging as the front desk was understaffed with 1 person and it seems another was being trained. Delivery truck was idling out front for about 1/2 hour filling up lobby with diesel fumes. Not impressed.

Room Tip: Good place if you are not reliant on a pool for entertaining the family.

ITSED, Manager at Super 8 Calgary Shawnessy Area, responded to this reviewResponded July 27, 2011

I interacted with guest writing this review on the day the pool was closed during the morning of the guest check out. It was most unfortunate that his children were looking forward to the pool and waterslide but another guest had a child who vomitted in the pool. As a responsible manager, I had no choice to close the pool, drain it, and refill with the appropriate chlorine levels.
Our pool is closed for children's accidents no more than six times a year. It is closed annually in January for maintenance and this closure is posted on the website.

Was most impressed with this Super 8 Motel. Staff are very efficient, knowledgeable and service was excellent. The hotel is very clean and very well maintained. Continental breakfast included in room rate and is definitely above average with lots of great and healthy choices. Quiet and desirable location in Shawnessy with shopping, restaurants and a beautiful YMCA all within walking distance. Easy access off the freeway.
Really enjoyed our stay here and would definitely stay again.

We hosted our son's 9th birthday pool party at the Super 8 Motel. I had 'won' the pool party in a charity golf tournament silent auction and wasn't sure what to expect prior to the party. What a wonderful surprise! The staff were very helpful and accommodating. Along with the pool, they supplied a room adjacent to the pool for the pizza and cake. The party room was spacious, clean and equipped with a TV. Our son and his friends loved the water slide and the parents were very impressed with the 'party' room. We will definitely be back!!

Decent Hotel, Nothing terribly wrong with it, accept the pool was out of order and the noise was what caused me to rate this hotel so poor. The noise in the morning was so loud. Someone in the next room sneezed and it sounded like they were in our room. You can hear every conversation and activity in the rooms next to you. If you want to sleep in and relax I recommended a stay somewhere else. If you are just passing through on business, they have a good continental breakfast and the front desk staff is great.

This Super 8 is amazing. The staff were very courteous and friendly, the room was great and cleaner than most five star hotels. It was quiet, comfortable and a great location. This Super 8 met and exceeded our expectations...likely the best Super 8 in the country.
