Verified Reviews of Super 8 Downtown River Walk

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"It's worth the cost for sure."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Special thanks to Kat the Desk Clerk for taking such good care of all our needs. Info, taxi's, directions. When in a city we didn't know. you were great support. Thank you. Our stay was great. The outside of the complex is upgraded and very nice. Our room was very clean and inviting. Thank goodness for the air conditioning too. Yes, the hotel is a $7 taxi ride to the downtown core where action was great. Then $7 taxi ride back to a rather secluded area but quiet and completely a safe feeling. The only thumbs down was the monday morning traffic noise on the highway. With the air conditioning on low all weekend long. it didn't bother of at all but the monday morning rush hour was noisy. But all in all, for the price, thumbs up! Thanks again Kat and Tammy Calgary, Canada.
