I reserved two separate rooms. One room was fine. One room was extremely musty smelling. The smell improved with opening the window for awhile and turning the fan on the air conditioner up to high. Maybe the air filter needed to be cleaned - the reset light was on.

I do not recommend this motel. I am in agreement with the reviewers who commented on the musty smell, as well as the worn out bedding. Additionally, our bathroom floor was dirty and I discovered long black hairs on the tub and floor in there. To their credit, the front desk staff was courteous. I would hope that the Super 8 franchise would require more of their franchise owners. This motel does not reflect well on the Super 8 brand.

This is the worse place I have ever stepped foot in. The hallways smelled like some low income apartment that is falling apart and the rooms only got worse! The first of four rooms we were in had us holding our breath because of the moldy smell from the air conditioner. The next three rooms were no better and had an added bonus of bugs on the windows and on the sheets, dust everywhere, and the feeling that you needed hosed off with bleach. We are now at the Fairfield in utter comfort!
