There was absolutely nothing wrong with this place. The price is right, clean non-smelly room ( as some say), and very very friendly staff! Nice friendly family owned business! Close to everything you may need.

We stayed here overnight while attending a friends going away party. Based on the reviews I was worried. However, we were pleasantly suprised. The gentleman at the front desk was cheerful and funny. The room was bigger than we thought. The first thing we did was pulled back the sheets and the bed looked brand new. The comforter was up... More

I stayed at this formerly Super 8 now Wakota Inn & Suites Hotel for a 3 day weekend with my 1 year-old-son. When I made the reservations over the phone, the receptionist was warm and friendly. When I checked in, it was a different story. The woman behind the desk was cold and unfriendly. I made the remark that they... More

My husband and I were on a 'getaway', and had a wonderful stay!!! When we arrived we were greeted with a smile (by front desk staff). They made sure that we were comfortable! The room was clean; they have a microwave, hairdryer, refrigerator, coffee pot & cable T.V. Everything you need, when your away from home. A very warm/comfortable Motel!!!... More

This is one of the most run-down hotels there can be, and definitely the worst of all Super 8 Motels. Everything from the entry way, hallways, front office, and rooms are very run down and old. Everything smelled like smoke! Upon arriving, I had found I was in a smoking room, because they didn't have any non-smoking rooms left. I've... More

This is probably one of the worst hotels I have ever stayed in. If I had not booked through expedia and was not able to make cancelations upon arrival I would have gone elsewhere (that and it was 9pm when I arrived). In fact I may still go elsewhere as I have 3 more nights in town. The motel smells... More

Back in November 2007 when I was about to start a new job I chose this hotel to stay until our home was ready to move in to. We chose this hotel as it was close to the office and shopping. Initially we were to stay for three weeks, but decided to leave after the first evening. The reason? A... More
