Super 8 Duncan

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Much less expensive than Best westerns surrounding and while those are beautiful hotels, this one is definitely the best value.

Horrible location, noisy from highway, dated and old. I like to walk from the hotel and go see stuff - very bad location for this, as you have to go down the Trans Canada highway. As it was right beside highway, it was noisy, neighbors were noisy as well (thin walls). TV and WIFI were poor (had to really fight to get it to work on a new ipad). When I checked in I found the clerk very creepy and as soon as I checked in I could not wait to check out. Will not stay here again. Limited breakfast options as well.

Check in was slow, got into our room, it smelled like a wet dog. Moved a bench and there was dog food and pet hair underneath it. Went to front desk and asked for a vacuum, had to do it myself, the vacuum was horrible. Came back after a baseball game and noticed housekeeping left the bag of garbage from the bathroom in my daughters open suitcase. Brought the garbage bag to the front desk and got "oh so sorry "again! Truly disgusted by this property.

This was the worst hotel I've stayed in over the last 14 years! Once you open the door the smell will knock you back. The rooms are small with only double beds. The floors were not vacuumed; in fact my wife had to go get a vacuum and clean the floors herself. Black mould litters the bathroom. The rooms are supposed to be none smoking but drips of nicotine hang from the bathroom ceiling fan (see picture). They said they "forgot" to clean our room between the first and second night but they also forgot to clean several others. It is clear the cleaning staff don't care. Did I mention the hotel is located in the most seedy area of town? Keep driving!

Stayed at the Super 8 on June 30/2017.Small but clean room.A little noisy from highway traffic.Good complimentary breakfast!Had Dinner at Smitty's Good food but slow!!(part of the complex.Decent price.

The bed was not clean found crumbs on mattress cover under sheets.Under the bed was not vaccumed .

Hotel looking a bit old. Room was never cleaned the second day we were there. Breakfast was very limited.

The only good thing about this place is the staff and their breakfast. This hotel was booked by work and when I checked in I found a half empty bottled water. There was hair left in the bath tub. Very thin walls, I can hear people having sex, multiple occasions. I can hear them moaning, bed squeaking and chatter. It's not bad if you book it at a really cheap price ex $30 but my work paid approximately $85/night for 9 nights. If I had known how bad this place would be, I would have told them to pay the extra money and book me at best western instead.

Hotel is just fine in just about every aspect of a low cost accommodation. Upgrading underway, fresh paint. One issue with drug deals going on right next door in plain view. Got solicited for smokes by shady characters. However, again, hotel is just fine.

We have stayed at this hotel for 2 years now as a group for my business event in Duncan. The hotel was under renovations but the rooms are enormous and always clean. Aside from that, the staff are very helpful and nice. They were more than helpful when I had to leave packages in my room to be delivered to our next city and the manager was able to send them out without a hassle. We will be staying there again next year.
