Literally overnight, the Super 8 Motel changed its name to Ponoka Canalta.

Although the hotel is still owned by Canalta Hotels, the name change is something the company has been working on for some time, explained general manger Alyssa McLaren. “Now we have our own brand at the forefront.”

To meet legal requirements, the sign was changed Nov. 15 with little notice but McLaren looks forward to what the company is planning. A new bedding program is in the works and new TVs for the rooms have been purchased for the 49-room hotel. McLaren said a rotating hot breakfast menu is already in the works as well.

The new bedding program will include a choice of hard or soft pillows, new sheets and duvets for guests, she added. “Everyone likes the choice.”

She feels guests should be comfortable while they stay at the hotel. Some of the plans are still being worked on so McLaren intends to host an open house for community members to see what the upgrade will look like.

“I know that the team here is really looking forward to sharing the brand with the community,” said McLaren.

The Super 8 was first opened April 26, 2005.
