We live right here in town and about once a month husband and I rent a room on the beach for three days to have a mini vacation. This was the first time we stayed at the Super 8, thanks to Priceline's name your own price. The rooms are very nice, compared to the other hotels on the beach in this price range. Very clean rooms with nice bedspreads and marble showers, mini fridge, microwave, coffeemaker, iron...we were impressed with the cleanliness. The outside is just as clean as the inside, while the grounds in front of the hotel (which are NOT part of this property) are a bit run down, the hotel property itself is immaculate. There is a swimming pool and a hot tub, both of which are clean and sparkly, and we had no problem getting in them as during the day during the week there is not alot of activity here. The staff was very friendly and joked with us when we were checking in....we are NOT morning people so we did not take advantage of the continental breakfast, but the breakfast area looked clean and cute. Overall the place was pretty quiet during a mid week stay in May and we were high fiving ourselves for finding a new place to stay on our monthly getaways. But alas....around 10 pm on the first night my husband went to get a bottle of gatorade out of the refrigerator and a german cockroach ran across the fridge. Boo!! . That was the ONLY one we saw during two nights in that room, but that ends that. Hopefully this was just a fluke, I would like to think, as this place is really clean otherwise, but we know the difference between the Florida "palmetto bugs" and the nuisance nasty german cockroaches, this one even dropped his egg case on the top of the fridge. Sigh. Oh well. Honestly, that one little bug changed this review from 5 stars to 3. I'm a city girl so it didnt' freak me out TOO bad, but it ruined my husband's whole trip. He just kept thinking they were going to stow away in our luggage. I feel bad even posting this review, as I know the management reads these and works to correct any complaints, which I think is super cool of them, and I don't want to steer any business away from them as they are nice people and this really is a nice clean place. I know it is hard when you have refrigerators and microwaves in every room to keep bugs out and hopefully this was just a minor thing.
