“151 more than Super 8”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

For a very average hotel, in a blue-collar working town, with an average self serve breakfast this motel is rather expensive. Is $159 the new price for a budget hotel?

Stayed 3 nights.

Bed was super comfortable. Room was large and had a small kitchenette with a mini fridge and cooking facilities which we didn't use but were nice to have. Never used the pool or ate the free breakfast. Air conditioner worked well - it was 34 degrees when we were here.

Location is excellent. Staff were very helpful and pleasant!

Would definitely stay here again.

I have stayed at the Super 8 many times over the past 10 years or so. It is located at the Kinnaird end of town, just off Highway 3, and near several restaurants (including many just south of the highway crossing), a grocery store and a cold wine and beer store. The hotel is an older building dating back to the 1960s when the Keenleyside Dam was being constructed. It was renovated a little over a decade ago, with the addition of the pool, theme rooms, and upgrading of the old pub into the Black Rooster pub and restaurant. I have always booked a room with a kitchenette which comes with a sink, fridge, stove top, cutlery and dishes for 2, a few pots and a coffee maker. The beds are newer and still firm and the room service is good, maintaining good standards of cleanliness and functionality. I have however observed one or two minor problems. Because the underlying structure is older, the building creaks at night, especially if there is a floor above you and sometimes it is loud enough to wake you up. The air conditioning also has to work hard and noisily to keep the rooms cool in the summer; a particular problem if you have a room with windows on the pool. The breakfast is dominated by carbohydrates; this is not surprising for hotels providing an inclusive breakfast, but here there are no meats (no bacon, sausage or ham which is provided elsewhere) and little fruit (they provide apples daily, but other fruits only once or twice a week from my experience). That said, the coffee is good, they have waffle machines, and the reception and breakfast room staff are very helpful. I have also had problems with their swipe key cards which regularly deprogram. I know this is becoming more common as we all carry phones, pads, tablets, remotely activated car keys and lots of other cards, all of which can deprogram a room key, but it seems a regular occurrence (as in every two days or so) at the Super 8. I will comment that the Black Rooster next door is one of the better restaurants in Castlegar with tasty, reasonably priced specials, a reasonable selection of beers, and sports TV that isn't too noisy. There is also a good sized parking lot.

Room Tip: Rooms on the top floor which do not have windows onto the pool are quieter, and not as hot and humid...

As we were leaving one of the staff from the breakfast room brought another guest a cup with a lid. She had seen her struggling with an open cup. This was after breakfast was over and clearly above and beyond what was expected in her job. I observed in the breakfast room earlier how friendly, helpful and efficient she was. She deserves a big pat on the back.
