Spent one night at the Super 8 in Albany, Orgeon. Not a pleasant experience. Booked it on Priceline and called after the bid was accepted to make sure I could get two rooms with 2 queen-sized beds. When we arrived for check in I was told we had two rooms with one king bed and they charged me $10 dollars each for queens. I paid the extra money and we were given rooms upstairs on the freeway side. It was late so I said "ok" and we hauled our bags upstairs to the smelliest rooms I have ever been in. They were supposedly non-smoking rooms but had obviously been smoking rooms until very recently. We opened the windows but had to close them so we could sleep. The freeway noise was very loud. The hotel provided ear plugs but I didn't find them until the next morning. The beds were uncomfortable and covered in thread-bare sheets and the oldest bedspreads I've ever seen. I skipped a shower the next morning because the towels didn't look clean.
The free breakfast was the same as most super 8s: oatmeal, cheap cereal, a waffle maker, juice with the tiniest cups ever, coffee, muffins cut into 1/4ths, bananas, hard boiled eggs (they ran out and had to make more), english muffins and strawberry yogurt. Not bad for free but you don't want to pay for it.
The hotel does have a pool but we didn't swim in it. It seems clean. The rooms had refrigerators, microwave, coffee pot and hair dryer.
I wouldn't go back. When I looked at just booking it on Priceline instead of bidding the next day the room was $20 cheaper.
I will say the management was friendly, but it would be worth a few more dollars to stay someplace that didn't stink.
