I would not return. The room was dirty, the pool was closed "due to maintenance", the air conditioning did not work, and the staff did not even bother to ask how my stay was. I will not return.

We have good luck with Super 8 motels and this typical. Room was clean and neat and everything worked. Microwave and refrigerator in the room. We reserved the wrong kind of room but the manager was unable to change even though the place wasn't filled. The indoor pool was closed for repairs, but we wouldn't have used it anyway. The... More

We booked it way ahead of time so we got a great price for the room. The hotel it's self wasn't anything extraordinary but was good enough for the price and the... More

Newly remodeled, but not yet completed (no place to hang clothes, no hangers), there were clearly teething issues (I was told we were the first to stay in the remodeled room). Every time we took a shower and left the door to the bathroom open, the fire alarm/smoke detector went off (very loud). First time was 7:00 am, we were... More
