5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

I had never heard of a motel that had rooms available for your pet to stay with you IN YOUR ROOM? But this one does. They had a lower floor with a whole section dedicated for pet friendly rooms, then rooms upstairs without pet friendly rooms. Our room didn't even smell like an animal had been in there. And that's saying alot because I notice it in my own house with our dog that we just got. Hotel staff let us check in early which was a big plus as we just spent 23 hours of non-stop driving, pulling a car trailer to get there. They also have ample parking. Breakfast was delcious, they have the usual, but then also my favorite waffle station, with batter already poured into disposable cups.

I marked the fitness center and the swimming pool as terrible, as I believe they didn't have one, not because they did ahve then and they were dirty.

The only detractor is Adair itself. There was no fast food restaurants at this exit, the only place to get food was at the casey's gas station, or a some kind of sit down restuarant that I didn't have time or energy to waste on it. The nearest exit with food is approximately 15-20 miles. Adair is a short drive of 1 mile into town, complete with brick paved streets, and a ripoff Napa auto parts store, that tried to sell me 2, 5 gallon gas cans for $56.

In Iowa, I noticed there weren't alot of places with food, gas, lodging all at the same place just off the interstate. After driving for a while, my friend and I finally found Adair. We stayed at the Super8 on 10/7/11. It was a good room. Bathroom was roomy. Plenty of channels on the tube. Price for double was about $50 with AAA discount. Good local restaurant right next door (open til 9:30 I think) -- Great food there. Beds comfortable.

After traveling for 7 hours, we just needed a place to sleep. The Super 8 in Adair was just okay. It was either that or the budget motel across the street. We did take advantage of the free breakfast and had a nice time visiting with friendly locals at the Blue Goose tavern in town. If you don't have to sleep in Adair, keep going.

We travel by motorcycles and the Iowa weather was unkind to us. We were soaking wet and looking for a dry place with laundry facilities and wi-fi. This Super 8 fit the bill. The place is tired, but some improvements have been made. The room was clean, the bed was typical flat and stiff.

I had a lower room with walss and ceilings so thin that I felt like I was at Niagra Falls when the neighbors used a toilet or shower.

I was double charged for the room, and despite having a void sale receipt, am still waiting for an adjustment from AMEX.

Breakfast room was unattended and out of coffee at 8:30 a.m. The attendant was getting ready to clean rooms.

This is a small town, nothing much to do, but if you get up to Coon Rapids, eat at the Coon Bowl lll. They have the best hamburgers in Iowa.

Where to begin? We paid for all of our expenses for three people on Hotwire. We were told when we got there that Hotwire didn't book a room for three. It booked a room for two. Unless one of us wanted the floor, we had to pay $20 extra for a room with another bed. That put this crappy little hotel room at about $80. This was not some teenage kid who didn't know what he was doing - it was the owner! He's a real piece of work and can barely speak English.

Then we went to the actual room. It smelled musty/moldy. The carpets were grossly stained.

At about midnight I woke up to a completely freezing room. I checked the heat. It seemed that in the middle of an Iowa December, the prudent thing to do to save money is turn the heat off on customers you've already cheated. We called the front desk, where the did not seem surprised, and they sent over someone with a space heater. A tiny space heater for the entire room! It had gotten so cold that the windows were coated in thick frost.

On to the next morning, we went to take showers and some of the towels were obviously refolded from the very last room occupants and put on the shelf. When we requested new ones we were treated like we were an annoyance.

At breakfast, which we decided not to eat after seeing the owner's ganges-like business practices, we saw donuts, other carb-laden foods and a few pieces of fresh fruit.

AVOID THIS PLACE! It is not okay to treat customers like this. I'd keep driving. You're not that far from Council Bluffs. More options.
