The TV didn't work. It was a nice flat screen TV and it wouldn't turn on, either with the remote control and the TV power button. The room smelled musty from the time I walked in. There was dirt all over the steps leading up to the third floor where my room was. The room was clean, I just wonder... More

Do not stay at super 8 Ames! It is disgusting and unsafe! The room 2 doors down from ours had paper over the window that was ripped so it was wide open and when we went inside the doorway to that room was the same way! I think someone had peed on the base of the lamp (months ago) and... More
