“super 8/10!! Shawnessy, Calgary”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

A friend and I attended Spruce Meadows showjumping in September. The Super 8 hotel was ideally placed for us to travel to events daily, as well as shops, restaurants, etc. Rooms were clean and airy, with replenishment of toiletries, etc. as required. The staff were really helpful and friendly; we found it was good value for money. Would definitely stay there again if going to 'horse' events at Spruce Meadows as well as other Super 8 hotels elsewhere.

Unfortunately we did not have the best experience. Chose this hotel because it was closest to our family in Calgary. Requested top floor room because we were attending a funeral and wanted some piece and quiet. This was stated when making the reservation but we received a first floor room next to the laundry room and front desk. Not a big deal until the guests above us started jumping around at all hours of the night. Staff were not attentive and didn't ask us how our stay was. Sleep quality, cleanliness and attention to detail was extremely poor. The breakfast bar staff were very kind and you could tell they knew what they were doing. The front desk on shift at checkin and check-out need some customer service training. No eye contacty and leaning on the desk. Our family wouldn't stay again or recommend this hotel. It needs some maintenance and renovations. Starting to look very dated and showing it's age.

We stayed at the Super 8 Motel in Shawnessy, Calgary for one night during the stampede. The accommodation served the purpose only to sleep, which was exactly what we needed. It was clean and comfortable.

On the downside, we were rudely asked to get out of the elevator when the elevator stopped working (I guess there were too many guests in it). I completely understand being asked to use the stairs if there are too many people in the elevator; however, there's no need to yell or be rude about it! On a different note, the receptionist who checked us in was wonderful!

Great bed, if that's all you need!

Very convenient to Spruce Meadows. I have been staying here for years, the prices have steadily been going up. This last stay the people upstairs were banging around but that doesn't have anything to do with the property, just inconsiderate guests. It is in a shopping center so you can do all kinds of errands, and walk to get some meals. Good place, just a bit pricey for a Super 8

This is better than your average Super 8. We stayed there for two nights during the Stampede and found it to be a very clean and nicely appointed room. Good value. 15 min. walk to the light rail station - quite convenient access to the Stampede grounds. Would definitely stay here again.
