Super 8 Athabasca AB

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I had a great stay in the Athabasca Super 8, I would have no problem staying here again. The kitchenette had everything for cooking a proper dinner.

This hotel is very clean and all the amenities are excellent. The only complaint we had was the inflexibility of the staff at check in and check out. We would have appreciated a little more friendly greeting at check-in and not having front desk staff telephone our room and come up to our room at 11:03 am. to ask on whether we were checking out!

I just stayed here for 4 days and was given a Business Room. It was bottom floor at the end of the hotel and had a door to the exterior as well as an entrance from the hallway. My room was cold when I arrived like another reviewer posted but all I had to do was turn up the heat. There was a lot of space and the decor looked fairly new. The free breakfast has many hot and cold options but the coffee is not very good. There is an A&W connected to the hotel and Boston Pizza just down the road. The hotel is located on the main road so you will hear lots of big diesel trucks and semis but it seemed like most of the hotels in Athabasca would have this issue. There were electrical outlets all over the room which I find to be a big plus compared to any other hotel I've ever stayed in where it's usually difficult to reach an outlet where one is needed. Overall it was a good experience.

This was the 7 year in a row that we’ve stayed at the Super 8 in Athabasca since we normally love staying at this hotel. This year though we had to pay extra for a door with an outdoor door that we didn’t request. The room was like an igloo upon arrival. When I mentioned this to the front counter manager he said that there was nothing that he could do :(

Very nice place to stay . It’s very nice they got a hot tub water slide and a regular pool . They got a hot breakfast I stay there every 2 weeks for 1night I would recommend this hotel .The staff is very helpful they need a paved parking lot for the trucks so mud does not get tracked in. I found out just ask and they will accommodate you great place to stay

I recently stayed at the Super 8 in Athabasca, the room was very clean. The breakfast selection, which is included with the room, was really good. Front desk were helpful and very accommodating. Great place to stay, will definitely stay here the next time I need to stay in Athabasca.

We always stay in a Suite which is very roomy and fits our needs - room 325. It is well maintained and clean. The service is great as well as the morning complimentary breakfast. The Super 8 in Athabasca is attached to the A & W, which makes it convenient if you were to choose to eat. This Super 8 also has a wonderful swimming pool with a hot tub and also a slide, which is very nice for family to enjoy a relaxing swim and the children can get some exercise after a long day of travelling. I highly recommend this Hotel, it is top notch. Gail Gallupe

As usual my stay at the super 8 was excellent! The rooms were clean, hotel was quiet and the staff was exceptionally friendly.

I stay at many hotels for work. This is the best in Athabasca. I am very picky regarding the cleanliness of a hotel, and it was passable. The staff were friendly, which ekavated my review from 3 stars to 4 stars.

We were in town for a wedding and had a lot of family staying the weekend. I booked my room on tripadvisor to get the best deal, while I booked my daughter, due to her job responsibilities, for 1 nights, after finding out rooms were being held for the wedding guests. Upon check-in she was told there was no booking. I called down to the manager to clarify, was told that the booking was for both nights, which would need to be paid first to get the room. After giving the confirmation number and name of the person I booked with, I was told the individual no longer worked there and the computer showed 2 nights booked. After a frustrating 20 minute conversation, no flexibility to talk to someone other than the manager I gave in so she could have a room for the night. Upon check out the next day, we learned we were only being billed for the 1 night, that it was 'fixed'. I offered feed back to the clerk that the manager is difficult and unprofessional. This was a frustrating stressful experience during an otherwise wonderful stay. Other than expecting later breakfast hours on the weekend, it was a clean site, the rest of the staff was pleasant and the stay was reasonably priced.
