We came in real late and found this hotel. Glad we did because it was the only room left in the entire state! An old, rundown hotel, but clean and quiet! Thanks for a great nights sleep. I only wish there was a phone number attached to Trip Advisor so I could have found it quicker.

I won't say it's a beautiful place. The wallpaper in our room was peeling off the walls and the TV was too big for the stand it was on and had to be angled weirdly sideways. Also, the view out our room looked toward a Goodwill and a Wal-Mart. However! All we needed was a place to sleep and the... More

Hotel could use a little updating, but all in all I had a comfortable, nice stay. Great location. Near everything. Lots of places in walking distance. Wish they offered a free breakfast, but Dino's next door/attached has great breakfast at a reasonable price. Staff was fantastic. Free breakfast would have raised my overall rating. Nice gym has everything you need.... More

Enroute to Cape Cod first day into the burn of a 5 day trip. Rate was reasonable. Room basic but clean. I always put out the Do Not Disturb notice as you are likely to be woken up very early by housekeeping.

Clean room, could use some remodeling, but the customer service was fantastic. Only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because the pool/hot tub/sauna were closed, and I didn't know it would be. After 16 hours of work I was looking forward to the hot tub. And I wasn't fond of housekeeping knocking on my door and waking me up... More

Badly in need of a room for one night enroute to a business meeting. Unfortunztely, this Super 8 was the ONLY plzce with available rooms. The price was low ... thankfully. The restaurant should be avoided. Marginal food quality, however good wait staff. Smell in public areas was moldy/musty. Carpet was worn and soiled. Whole facility in need of make-over.

It is a older motel but it's very very clean and has a very nice pool that's heated. Inside the pool room is a sanA and a jacuzzi. Price was awesome and was close to a walmart and McDonald's. Also it's not far from Wisconsin dells which is why we booked it.

I've always booked my travel arrangements through discount websites for lowest rates. While waiting for the confirmation to go through on this last minute MIDNIGHT booking, Nikki noticed I was paying with my corporate credit card, and informed me that by booking directly with them, she could have applied the corporate discount and it would have been approximately $15 cheaper....

This place had a pool that was actually heated:-) most hotel pools say they are heated but feel otherwise. The rooms and the facility are older, but clean, and the price was right. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. I would stay here again

This was a last minute reservation as I had a funeral to go to. The staff was very nice and the rate for this hotel was priced right. The rooms were very clean and the pool and the pool area were clean.
