We have stayed there a number of times. Beds are lumpy, rooms tiny with no room to navigate between the desk and the end of the bed if someone is sitting there.
Carpets haven't been shampooed in a very long time. I didn't see any bugs or I would have been out of there.
The prices are higher than the Quality Inn across the street and about the same as the Best Western which has many more amenities....I would stay at those two rather than this one, but at least you know the Super 8 will be the last to fill up in the area.
Pool was clean but unheated; the spa was decent when it is running.
Tiny fitness area (would not call it a fitness room since it's in the hallway on the way to the pool and usually wet from the kids jumping on the equipment when leaving the pool).
breakfast area is seriously the smallest I have EVER seen in a hotel. There was a line to get in to the dining area. Seating for maybe 10-12 people tops, only 4 tables and those were so close to each other, the buffet and coffee pots only one person at a time could go in. They don't provide safety caps for the coffee cups (probably because they don't want guests taking them back to the rooms, even though they have coffee makers in there), breakfast was the usual waffles,store bought muffins and some aging fruit. We skipped it and went to McD's.
