3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Traveling through El Centro on the way to Yuma, it was late and we need a place to stay that would take pets. We chose the Super 8, the price was right, the room was clean, the bed was OK and the shower worked. It allowed a dog but the breakfast was awful. Not much else to say.

I often travel from Arizona to California and vice versa. This hotel is perfect if you are just looking for a comfortable room at a great price. Nothing fancy. Room was clean and they even had Direct TV. It's located right off the freeway and there are plenty of restaurants in the area. Very small and old looking from the... More

When we arrived the desk clerk said she was upgrading our stay to a suite. This was only giving us the room next door for us to sit on a couch, there was a kitchen which we did not need or use, and there was NO BED in it. I thought our reservation was for a handicap room, it was... More

Our stay at the Super 8 motel was very pleasant. Without a request the manager said "I'm going to give you a free upgrade, a suite". Great. We arrived early and he said, "There will be no charge for early arrival". Great. The motel is handy to the Interstate, stores, restaurants, etc. The pool is pretty small but very clean.... More

The ladies in the lobby were friendly and welcoming and they upgraded us to a suite.. When I asked for a recommendation for lunch, they suggested the restaurant across the street and gave me a menu. When we returned from lunch, there was a gal mopping the tile, and even though the yellow caution sign was displayed, she held my... More

We chose the hotel for its convenient location, and what an unexpected surprise when our room turned out to be a two room suite with full kitchen! The bed was very comfortable, and we were sorry to have to move on the next day. There are restaurants located close by. All in all, we will definitely stay here on our... More
