We stay in (h)motels approximately 20 weekends a year. We have never had to check out on Saturday & find another place to stay, until this one.
When we first pulled in our son said "Hey, we're in the ghetto!" and this was the best part of our stay. I should have known to leave when the person checking in before us was paying by the hour.
The initial room had partying people at our window blowing smoke into our non-smoking room via the a/c. We asked for another room & they moved us 3 rooms down; however those partying had both rooms between so it didn't matter much. Both rooms had an unpleasant smell and were pretty cheapily decorated. The second room lacked a bathroom light that worked and was pretty dirty (we kept our shoes on). The partying went on ALL NIGHT LONG despite the front desks' assurances they would get them to stop. In the morning we realized that our door would not lock when we left (nor close tightly). After being up all night that was the last straw and we told them we were checking out. But since we had to be at the track by 7am they told us just to come later to get our things (which were unfortunately left in the open room, but were left unscathed). When we returned in the afternoon we were told we'd have to pay for Saturday night (not the story we had gotten in the morning), that "of course" the door locked (it didn't!), and then they tried to overcharge us $20 above what we had reserved it for.
We went to the Marriott 2 exits down (for very little more) and it was PARADISE. We will never, ever stay in another Super 8 (we even cancelled our reservations in one for the following weekend).
This is my first hotel review, despite staying in them frequently because others need to know. I wish I could do it on the other sites like Orbitz, Travelocity, etc. because it was BAD.
BAD, BAD, BAD.
