First off i would like to tell everyone who is at the motel 8 that they are doing a great job keep it up second my room was so clean and every time i needed anything done i would get ahold of the office and they would send the assistant manager and he is the nicest friendliest guy i know and he is also the quickest repair man i have ever seen he got everything done in less time then i have ever seen so all in all the assistant manager is why this motel gets a five star rating so everyone if you are looking for a cheap vacation I suggest the Motel 8 i love this motel. all you who gave a negative review just dont come back plain and simple.

Room Tip: Owner will show rooms and let people pick the one that suits them best

As budget hotels go, this was perfectly acceptable. Our room smelled a bit musty at first, but this quickly improved with some airing.
The exterior and the back stairs looked a bit shabby, but the room was clean and warm. OK for a one night stopover.

3 friends shared a 2 double bed, non-smoking kitchenette room for Olds Fibre Week in mid-June 2016. The woman at the front counter had me a little scared when she couldn't verbally confirm that we had the room I have phoned in to book the month before. Upon inspecting the room, it was exactly what we had booked. We were also required to pay for the hotel upfont when we arrived, this is unusual.

There was plenty of room for 3 adults, 3 suitcases & other bags as well as 3 spinning wheels. The room had 2 beds, 1 desk, 1 tv on dresser-type stand, 1 table & 1 chair. The Kitchen had a good sized fridge/stove/sink combo and all the necessary kitchen pots, pans, plates, cups and utensils.

The room was far from fancy and could use more lighting, but it was clean and the housekeeping was very good each day. Unlike some motels, their bath towels and face cloths are brown instead of white. The Wi-Fi to our room was reliable and strong and considering we were on the back of the motel, that was lovely.

Continental breakfast was served right beside the front desk, there was cereal, yogurt, bread, muffins and some fruit. There was also coffee, milk and juice. It was lovely to have a quick bite to save time and money. Alternatively the Tim Hortons' restaurant is across the parking lot.

We enjoyed our discount stay and would stay again given the choice.

Room Tip: Construction beside motel got noisy on week days. Fridge/Sink/Stove unit in kitchenette was noisy w...

The hotel did not Check for my online reservation, charged me $3 more, was refunded out of petty cash. The site was listed as being wheelchair Accessible WHICH IT IS NOT. Please note: for wheelchair users this is NOT wheelchair friendly site. There is a ten inch barrier to every room so would NOT say it is wheelchair accessable.
