Wow. I'm not usually at a loss for words. But I am with this hotel. It's now known as the Colony Inn of Buena Park, not the Super 8. As another reviewer mentioned, yes, this hotel has long term guests and it created the feeling of staying in a run-down apartment complex.
The room was clean enough, and although it was non-smoking, you could tell that it used to be a smoking room. The smell is just baked into the walls and bedding. It was an odd odor--old and musty. I refused to walk barefoot on the carpet and wouldn't let my son sit on the floor.
The TV remote didn't work. The AC unit sucked. While the area for the bathroom was large, it hadn't been thoroughly cleaned in a really long time. There were dirt smudges all along the bathroom door.
The lights are on a sensor and for some reason, the light in the bathroom kept coming on in the middle of the night. Then, at midnight, the smoke detector started beeping. You know, that chirping it makes when it needs the battery changed. On top of that, the alarm of the car parked in front of our door went off for 30 minutes. My husband reached for the phone to call the front desk, and the buttons were missing from the phone. We just looked at each other and said, "I want to go home."
As we checked out, the front desk clerk asked me how everything was. I paused, and said, "Fine." He smiled. They are very aware of the state of that hotel.
