“Just what I needed!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

After staying at the Red Roof next door for an hr... I found this heaven for $10 more a day. I got a clean room on the top floor witha gorgeous view. The staff was friendly and very willing to help. Security was always present making me and my friend's car feel safe. The hotel is located minutes from sixth street and the capital. Basic shopping all around. Very happy to stay here.

Scariest experience in a hotel. The condition of the room was pretty run down. There were bugs crawling around. Paint was chipping in the restroom. Carpet was pretty dirty.
At night, despite having white noise, a fight in the room next to us woke us up to where I had to call management and then the police. We fled like fugitives at 3:30am due to the unsettling feeling that things could get worse (4 women & 4 men in one room) after the walls shook from the fight. Not impressed with the facility at all. Sorry. This is the second Super 8 we ever stay at & my husband and I vowed that these were no longer an option for us and our 3 yr. old son.

This hotels facilities were not awful. It had pretty comfy beds and pillows, but that's about it. The breakfast was subpar and the parking lot/area was obviously unsafe as there were lots of cameras everywhere and signs stating they aren't responsible for stolen items. The worst part of the hotel was all of the guests staying there. It was obviously the cheapest option in the area because a lot of the guests were either paying day to day with cash or arguing with the hotel staff right in the breakfast area in the morning for breaking various rules (smoking in room, having 7 people stay in 1 room, etc.). Overall we did not feel safe at the hotel and I would recommend staying at another hotel down the road and paying the extra $10-20/night, it's worth it.
