I stayed here for two nights. I was a little hesitant when I drove up as I had booked room in advance from Phoenix. I used my Wyndham rewards to stay there as it only required 8000 points which is great for a Super 8. And the best part was when I left a night early they refunded my points!!!!

I was very pleased with my one-night stay at the Super 8. The room was extremely spacious and would have been big enough for at least 4 people. Everything was clean, including the carpet.
