Absolute worst place I have ever stayed at. I had reserved one non smoking room with two queen beds. Apparently I only was allowed 2 people in my room even though when i booked my room it shows a maximum of 4, which was how many people were staying in the room. The four of us had gone to a... More

we booked this room through hotwire and when we went to check in they took my credit card and charged me again for the room because they supposedly didnt get the fax from hotwire, and when hotwire tried to get ahold of the manager they tried to tell them between 5 faxes sent from hotwire to Super 8 managers they...

I choose this location because it had the best reviews. The first time I went to my room, my room key only showed a red light. The office was a considerable distance but I went back, dragging my suitcase & backpack. The receptionist complained about the small numbers on the keypad but he did return with me to see that...

We ended up here because we did a last minute trip during the Holidays and were looking for an overnight stay. I would have expected this place to be in better shape since it is across from the university and would think parents and students visiting the school would like to stay by the school. We checked in and the... More

I have stayed at this specific Super 8 once before, and the stay was fine. I consider myself practical so I didn't really expect much - as long as the basics were met with no health concerns or noise issues or any other annoyances, I was happy. This trip did no go as well as the first. Upon arrival, the... More

Very disappointing. They lost my reservation and my rooms were split up. No one showed up to make coffee. I have stayed here many times but this was my worst experience so far.

As a travel agent, I booked this budget property for my client for 2 nights in August. The hotel cancellation was listed as 24hrs prior to arrival. Three days after booking and 7 days before arrival, my client contacted the hotel needing to cancel. The room was cancelled but my client was charged for 1 night plus tax. She was... More

Let's get one thing straight: this is a rather basic, no-frills motel. Like similar motels of its caliber, the room is nothing to write home about. Heck, it doesn't even have an alarm clock (a trend I'm starting to see more and more with lower-end motel chains). What it does have, however, is a bed, a basic assortment of furniture... More

As I walked into my room, it smelled dirty. The carpeting was stained very badly and obviously had not been vacuumed or cleaned for weeks. The door safety chain had once been pulled from it's mounting and reattached in a haphazard way so it was difficult to lock into place. There was a huge unrepaired hole in the wall behind... More
