Spent one night, spur of the moment. The rate was excellent. The beds had strange hair in them. The bathroom had a horrible smell to it that we could not even describe. None of us were able to shower due to this. The entire place smelled of some kind of air freshener which should not be needed if everything is... More

Bed and room were fine. Some noise in hallway late into evening. My phone did not work and the evening desk person said she would leave a note to the night desk person for a 4:00 a.m. wake-up call/knock on door. That did not happen but I did wake up okay. As I checked out, her note was visible but... More

I found the motel quite a good deal for what I paid. The bed was comfortable, the shower was amazing, the location felt safe, the staff were friendly, and the location was very convenient off the freeway and near many eating establishments. The TV and picture quality left something to be desired, but with free WiFi, it was not much... More

The service was less than stellar - the rooms, including the bathrooms are TINY! There is no counter space, the view is awful and the whole plans smells rank. Location is decent for travels being close and convenient to the freeway. This place is designed for long haul truck drivers.

Friendly staff, clean room, love having fridge and microwave in the room. Only negative was that we had two dogs with us and I saw nothing on the website about an extra charge for pets. Might not have booked it if I'd known this in advance.

Young lady at the reception desk was very friendly during checking but that is the end of the good news for this Super 8. Paper thin walls, saggy mattress, and the worst breakfast ever. The waffle machine was broken and the eating area was circled by a cloud of flies. Avoid this Super 8 if at all possible!
