This hotel has 63 air-conditioned guest rooms and suites, all of which offer one king or two queen beds, free Wi-Fi, cable TV, a mini-fridge, a microwave, a coffee/tea maker, a desk, a hair dryer, and an iron/ironing board.

The hotel offers a business centre for guest use and free parking. Up to 2 dogs are welcomed in pet-friendly rooms, for a fee of $10 per night, and this hotel also is wheelchair accessible. Guests can choose between smoking and non-smoking rooms.

A free continental breakfast is served to all guests daily, while other nearby dining options include Golden Honey Restaurant, the Funky Fork, Olive Tree, Mountain Pizza and Steak House and Galloway Lounge, all within a 3-minute walk of the hotel.

The Good
The majority of reviews consulted for this analysis were positive with much praise going to the hotel's rooms and value.

Most lodgers who reviewed the hotel were pleased with the rooms they received at this hotel. They described them as clean, quiet, and tastefully decorated, with comfortable beds and duvets.

The majority of reviewers felt the Super 8 Edson was a hotel with good value. They were pleased by the inclusion of refrigerators and microwaves in their rooms, and felt the rates were reasonable. The included continental breakfast also added to the value of the hotel for some, as did the pet policy ($10 per night for up to 2 dogs).

The Bad
While most of the reviews consulted for this analysis were positive, there were a couple complaints among them, including inattentive staff and an odour in one of the rooms.

One guest was disappointed with the level of customer service they received. They recounted that the front desk staff were on their personal phones during check-in, which they felt was unprofessional.

When checking in to their room, one reviewer mentioned noticing a strong smell of oil and gas, which they surmised was from a previous guest. Upon asking the front desk for an air freshener, the guest was apparently told there was nothing that could be done.
