Overall, very pleased with the accommodations - very clean, staff was very friendly and helpful with any questions that needed answering, prices were reasonable and comparable to other hotels/motels, and the breakfast in the morning was great with lots to choose from

We enjoyed our stay here. It wasn't anything fancy but didn't claim to be either. The room was clean with nice decor. The staff at the front desk were friendly and helpful. They were able to provide us with a take out menu for a local restaurant we wanted to try and provided us with information about delivery. (That didn't work out so well but it wasn't their fault.) It was easy to get around the hotel. We didn't use the pool but it looked clean and impressive with a fun-looking waterslide.

They are to be especially complimented on how they deal with noise. The place was full and housing two volleyball teams and we barely heard a peep all night.

I have two complaints. We reserved through Hotwire and arrived to find that we were placed in a smoking room. We had no warning that this might happen and the hotel was unable to move us as they were at full occupancy for the night. Now, I'm not sure who to blame, them or Hotwire or both but we put up with it for the night.

The second complaint is about breakfast. I was happy that it was included but it was total chaos. The breakfast area is tiny and is clearly not built to accommodate the number of people it should. So, not only was seating an issue, but everyone had to huddle around this narrow strip of counters to get the food. That area could probably accommodate maybe 4 people preparing their food...not a whole hotel's worth! To make it worse, it wasn't well-staffed. So we arrived to finding many items depleted. Eventually someone did come to refill everything and, while that was appreciated, her doing so put her directly in the way of everyone for 15 minutes. And this person wasn't the least bit friendly about it either. No eye contact, no conversation, just pushing her way into where she needed to be. But I assume she was stressed by the small space and being understaffed so maybe she wasn't at her best.

Also, if you are spending a lot of time in downtown Truro this might not be the best location. It is a bit out of the way, although there's lots of fast food and a movie theatre right there.

Room Tip: We were on the third floor in the back and it was perfect. Easy to get to and not noisy at all.

Dear CndnFlagonBkpk

Thank you for taking the time to comment on your recent stay at the Super 8 in Truro. I apologize for your breakfast bar experience; we were not adequately staffed for the weekend and though it should not have come across to our guests, it obviously did. This is not acceptable and will be utilized as a training opportunity with the staff.
I will investigate the issue of the smoking room being reserved. You may be pleased to know that we are planning to switch all our rooms to non smoking in 2014, which should eliminate this issue in future.
Thank you again for providing feedback about your experience. It is through constructive comments such as yours that we can work to improve our product and services. I hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back in the near future.

Great service, the staff were very accommdating. We requested a early check in as we needed to get ready for a wedding, and they made sure our room was ready, knew who we were when we came in, and made sure we had a spacious room. Not too bad of a rate for a spacious room with a king bed. There was a strong smell of smoke in the hallway, I'm a smoker so it didn't make a difference to me, but it would definitely bother others. The continental breakfast was good, but the coffee definitely wasn't!
