Wow, I can't believe this is a Super 8! I'm used to a more bare-bones experience at Super 8s, but not here. From the second I drove in the parking lot I knew it was a different level of Super 8 than most others. The landscaping and exterior appearance was top notch.
The gentleman at the front desk was great and the lobby was as nice as hotels costing twice this much. My room was outstanding; whisper quiet, and I mean whisper quiet. NO sounds from adjacent rooms or the hallway! Those who may have read my other reviews know that my absolute top complaint about hotels is the constant door-slamming noise from the hallway. There was literally not a sound once I got inside my room. Being on the bed was like floating and there were great pillows and a laptop tray like those found in Hampton Inns and other much higher priced hotels. The bathroom was super high-end with a furniture-like vanity with a granite top, and the other materials were great. The towels were thicker than ours at home are and there was even a scale! I've never seen a scale in a hotel before. One slight maintenance issue with my room (308) was that the shower head was a bit loose and that caused most of the water to drop straight down instead of shooting out of the nozzle. I held it tight and then it worked, but other than that (and, I could have / should have mentioned it) it was a great bathroom. The huge flatscreen TV had every channel I would ever want and the reception and picture and remote all were great. The wireless internet was super fast and flawless. There was a great looking little swimming pool in the back but I didn't use it.
The breakfast was also outstanding, with a hot "main course" like eggs or biscuits and gravy, waffles, packets of oatmeal and grits, GREAT Starbucks, fresh-ground coffee! What other hotel has a machine that grinds fresh beans for every cup?! I can't even think of another time that I've seen such a thing in a hotel. One thing I wish they would have had would be hard boiled eggs, I much prefer those to egg patties or something else that I don't know what the ingredients are. And, maybe plain packets of oatmeal instead of all flavored (i.e., sugared) oatmeal. But, if that's my only minor glitch with this super breakfast that's barely even worth mentioning.
I couldn't possibly recommend this hotel any higher than I do. I would stay here again in a heartbeat and would recommend it to Donald Trump. Super 8, you've outdone yourself here!
