Overall the hotel was good. Excellent service. I was always greeted with a smile by all hotel staff. All questions were answered with satisfaction. Many local businesses nearby. Carpet in the room was a little old, however it was of little concern to me.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Convenient for visiting South Calgary locations."
A reasonably priced hotel in a convenient location in South Calgary.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"4-5 star prices for very run down interior"
Plus: Location is easy right on the outskirts of Calgary/ Macleod Trail South. Bed was clean and comfy. Customer service was good (front desk/ easy check-in, out) NEGATIVE: Room was quite run down. Old carpet, pull outs were old and stained. In major need of updates.I had a family suite, and for $40 more, I could have had the equivilant, or just a normal […] room at a place like the Delta or a higher rated star. Pool closes at 10 which was also a bummer. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Convenient location for mountain sightseeing."
A pleasant room with all of the necessary things to make the stay a home away from home. Front desk staff pleasant and helpful. Breakfast better than most hotels serve. A good experience overall!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel at shopping centre."
The hotel is close to shopping and restaurants. Our room was over main entrance to hotel. Every morning there was a group of people standing under our window talking loud, smoking and drinking coffee.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The staff at the front desk were very friendly and helpful. The atmosphere with the stampede breakfast and car show was very festive. Close to the train, with lots of convenient shopping.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Pool was awesome"
We stayed at the hotel as a family for a weekend. The pool was awesome. My 9 year old loved the waterslide and the pool temperature was nice and warm. The staff was friendly and accomodating. I would stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean and Good Location!"
Free "Hot" breakfast was a disappointment. If you stick to muffins and cereal, you'll be fine. Hotel was situated very far south in Calgary, which was convenient for us, as we were visiting family on an acreage just outisde the south end of the city. Easy access to Hwy #22 if you are heading west to the mountains.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Super 8 - Best Pool ever"
On a recent trip using 3 different hotels, this was the absolute best of the three. Stayed here on a recommendation from local family. Friendly, helpful staff, large TV, very comfortable bed and a very warm & clean pool for the grand kids. I will highly recommend this location to everyone and definitely book this hotel again in the future. Much better […] than the 4.2 rated hotel we stayed in on the way home. This hotel should be rated much, much higher. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
If you require a hotel on the south side of Calgary this one is very good. Close to shopping, restaurants, traffic corridors etc. The included breakfast is very good, with a good healthy choice of food, juices, etc. The hotel was very quiet, the room and bed comfortable and well equipped. We have stayed in this hotel many times and will be back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The staff was very friendly at this hotel and the breakfast was great. The pool was nice and warm but not very well lit. When we were in the hall going up to our rooms there was a funky smell. Luckily, the odor washardly noticable in our rooms and they were nice and clean.Genuine Expedia guest review
"super duper 8 hotel"
This hotel is right in the heart os Shawnessey, close to all amenaties. The rates were resonable for our stay that we had to extend twice, was there for almost 2wks. All the staff were really friendly and helpful no mater what you needed, pool was great for the kids. Cooked breakfeast, sausage/bacon on alternative days with egg like pancakes and continental […] food. The washers & dryers come in handy at $3 ago. We would recomend this hotel 100%, great service and staff. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Staff very friendly, pool very small. Water slide fun and..."
08/20/14 A TripAdvisor Member
Staff very friendly, pool very small. Water slide fun and kids loved. Wished there was more fruit other than only apples. Bathroom door extremely hard to open and shut, smelled terrible of stale smoke
08/18/14 joytrav Fredericton, Canada
We stayed for a week while visiting our son. The common areas sometimes were a bit messy, but our room was clean. The breakfast can be hit or miss, especially if you go towards the end of the breakfast time. They were sometimes out of yogurt, sugar, or coffee. Some fruit other than apples would be nice. Our room had an odd BO odor which we didn't get resolved. Overall though, we enjoyed our stay. The staff are wonderful.
"Inflexible - will not stay again."
08/15/14 Person B Calgary
The cancellation policy is too early. Most hotels allow cancellation 24 hours before, however this doesn't and I ended up paying for one night though I was not going to stay there. After an hour, I told them fine I will pay for the cancellation charge which is one night. Please send the receipt, and theyd id not do so.
"10 day stay"
08/12/14 Shane G Calgary, Alberta
Needed pet friendly hotel to stay in, Super 8 fit the bill. Desk service prompt and professional. Went to our room, smelt horrible (carpets needed to be cleaned - pet odors). Desk agent moved us to another room which had no issue. Room on same side as McLeod trail - Loud. Air conditioner very loud. Met expectations for what we needed. Challenged for discount due to length of stay. Didn't get much. Did get good AMA discount. Make sure you ask, as it is typically not volunteered. No Gym / had pool / morning breakfast - basic / Internet poor at peak times (evening) / long time for the hot water to show up in the shower. Start shower and go brush teeth. Good once going
"Best Super 8 I have stayed at"

I was so impressed, nice room, great pillows, clean, family friendly with pool and slide. A real breakfast with eggs and sausage too!

Upon arrival we noticed that the bathroom had hair in the bathtub, on the floor and on the toilet, there was also blood on the wall and bathroom door. We informed the front desk and they said that they had no cleaning staff available and they would make sure that it was cleaned properly the next day. On the night of arrival our phone started ringing at approximately 12:10 am and then again at 12:14 am, being as there was no one at the other end when I picked up the phone, we thought that maybe there may have been an emergency, so I got up and dressed and went to the front desk to speak with them, we were told that they were upgrading the phone system. I was not able to go back to sleep. The next morning when I seen the Guest Services Manager, Shivpal Sidhu and told him he laughed and said "Well I hope you enjoy the sunshine today." My husband went to express his displeasure with Mr. Sidhu on that morning regarding the uncleanliness of our room and the disruption of sleep as a result of a phone upgrade that should have been done during the day time or at least a warning to the guests, the entire time my husband spoke to Shivpal Sidhu there was another person at the desk beside him. Mr. Sidhu who my husband was addressing, he just continued looking at the computer screen and typing and looked up only once, but never replied. We find this very disrespectful. We left our room for the day and upon our return to the room there was still hair on the tub and floor and the blood was still not cleaned. I went to the front desk again and spoke to Kevin Mort and he apologized and tried to change our room but for some reason the system would not let him. I found Kevin helpful and concerned about these issues and that nothing has been addressed. My daughter asked for cleaning supplies and she cleaned the blood off the door and wall. On the following day, after another outing, we returned to our room and again found hair all over the bathroom, this time when I went to the front desk there was cleaning staff available and she was sent to our room to clean again. We are retired and plan on travelling extensively over the next few years but I will not be staying at this Super 8 again.
"Non smoking room smells like smoke."
08/05/14 alwaysontheroad22 Rycroft, Canada
I stayed at this location last Thursday night with my family. As soon as we entered the room, it smelled like a smoking room, despite the no smoking signs on the door. I am willing to bet it used to be a smoking room, and they changed it to non smoking without replacing the mattress, carpet, and curtains. When I went to bed the smell was much worse, that mattress smelled horrible. Also when I went for some ice I noticed the ice bucket had a pink dried up liquid all over the inside. I took it to the front desk and asked for another clean one, but they just took it from me and said they would inform house keeping, so had to use a bag for ice instead (I guess washing it would be to much work for the front desk staff.) I have stayed at this hotel about a year earlier and never had a issue, but this time was awful, and I got no sleep due to the smell. I WILL NOT BE BACK.
"Great Desk Staff"
08/05/14 Paul C Vashon, Washington
Hotel was pleasant and clean. Best and closest hotel to Spruce Meadows, where we were attending a 4 day show. Lots of hot water (one of my main requirements), clean, and frig, microwave and air conditioner worked well. Cheap and well-repaired guest laundry. Especially want to recommend the front desk staff who were very helpful to a non-Canadian and answered all my "stupid" questions about money, directions and language/terms. One front desk clerk also also HIGHLY recommended the Cattle Baron restaurant where we had the best Prime Rib we have ever had for a reasonable cost. Thank you.
"A Good Stay"
08/04/14 Glen411 Medicine Hat, Canada
The room was very good. A Few things could have been improved. The Mircrowave rotating platter had butter from popcorn from the previous guest, There was a dime under a bench by the door for joining room and the Kleenex was showing a blue streek telling that it was almost empty. Besides that the staff was excellent, a very good breakfast and an enjoyable stay. I would stay next time. If the house keeping did better it would have been excellent.
