“Noisy”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2012

We stayed there two nights, the carpet in the entrance hall was very dirty. We didn't get much sleep either night as it sounded like a herd of elephants above us. Wasn't impressed.

Room Tip: maybe the top floor.

Thank you for your response. The July 17th weekend was a very busy weekend (wedding, 16 team softball team as well as a convention), not to mention that every motel was fully booked. It is almost impossible to keep the carpet clean from guest spilling coffee on their way to their rooms as well as cleaning it with all the traffic. Be assure that we clean all of our carpets on a regular basis. You should also know that our rates were the most competitive at the time as well as the only property that offered a FREE continental breakfast which included fresh waffles.

I was a little leary as we pulled up...seemed the hotel was dated and so it can be a bit of a 50/50. Really I should know better than to judge a book by it's cover. It turned out to be well kept and the rooms clean. We had actually wondered prior to arriving why hotels that allow pets don't have laminate. To our surprise our room had laminate with area carpets. Much cleaner. We stayed 2 nights and found the room to be rather small with 2 double beds in it. Free Wifi worked well, air conditioning worked well, and the staff accomodating. Note there are no elevators so the trek up the stairs to the 3rd floor, with lots of luggage, wasn't much fun...but staff will help if asked. Our room faced the back so I was a little concerned that there may be noise from the pub below - but that wasn't an issue. Although the little bush behind the hotel seemed to be a party area. Even with the window closed we could hear yelling. Not the hotel's fault, but not enjoyable either.

Please note all rooms in this hotel are pet friendly.

While they don't have room service, you can order take out from Smitty's and they give 10% off to guests.

As I was staying for a few days I wanted to have a room that was a decent size. The room I had certainly met my expecations. The continental breakfast was very similar to other motels and was certainly suffice. Smitty's was also in the same building so was an option. Other restaurants are fairly close by. The room was very clean. The WIFI was fast and did not require a password.
The only draw back was that there is no lift so it meant using stairs. I hope to be in Duncan again and will certainly look to take another room here.

Room Tip: I was in a room with a full kitchen. It had plenty of room. Traffic noise from the highway was not...

I was very surprised at how clean this hotel was! nice rooms, better than i had expected. Free wifi, free local calls and free breakfast was a huge plus. Would definitely stay there again!

Room Tip: There are no elevators, so if you can't do stairs ask for a room on the main floor.

The room was tidy and clean but it is definitely an older facility that needs updates. It met my needs and the service was good, but it showed its age everywhere you looked.

Room Tip: ask for a room away from the highway, I was in the back and it was quiet.

Stayed in March with hubby and paid for standard room on Super8 site for 2 nights and got upgraded to bigger room for free. Front desk was very nice and quick at check-in. The room was nice and clean. Had good rest during our stay and the breakfast in the morning was great, lots of selection. I felt for the price we paid we did get alot for our money. I think I will try Smittys next time I stay here, it smelled amazing! I stayed many places on the Island and this is considered a good place.

We stayed here for one night and booked two rooms. Both rooms were cramped (as in....can't even walk around the bed or place a suitcase down without blocking the door). The continental breakfast had an assortment of stale fruit and broken bagels. Coffee was sludge. For $100 a night, a decent cup of coffee is not too much to ask. There was (ick) hair in the tub, sludge around the bottom of the toilet and it sounded like elephants were staying in the hotel due to the paper-thin walls.

Room Tip: I don't think there is a good room. We booked one on the first floor and one on the third. Bot...

We are sorry that you had a bad experience, our staff would have been more than happy to move you to larger rooms such as our family suite, jacuzzi suites or kitchenette rooms if requested. I can also guarantee that we have one of the most competitive rates in town and the only property to offer a FREE continental breakfast.

Our FREE continental breakfast includes cereal, bagels, English muffins, donuts, fruits, toast, muffins, croissants, coffee, tea, milk and juices. The coffee is made fresh and the feed back we have received have all been positive, but we would be more than happy to look into other brands, but this is the first time it has been compared to SLUDGE. Also, I'm not sure if I have ever heard someone describe oranges and apples as being stale. I can ensure you that we use the same supplier as all the major restaurants and they ensure quality products.

We are BCAA/AAA, BC Accommodation and Super 8 Franchise approved and we would not be so if we had hair or sludge anywhere in our bathrooms. As a matter of fact we were just inspected by AAA on the 23rd of February prior to your mentioned stay.

Lastly, the comparison of our walls to paper-thin walls is inaccurate since they are concrete block walls with a decorative pattern. Not sure how you can compare guest next to you as elephants and how you can even hear them through concrete cinder block walls.
