we found our stay at the super 8 to be very satisfying. At reception and throughout our stay staff were very friendly, courteous and efficient. Breakfast was good and our room and all the hotel very clean. Would suggest there be more and better signage to the driveway leading to the Hotel.

Thank you for your Super Review. We are so happy you enjoyed our friendlily staff and super breakfast and clean rooms. We are working on getting signage at the top of the road, as this was not permitted a few years ago, but we are trying again. Thank you for your review and have a great summer. More
