“Dingy, dark, smelly”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

Staff was very nice, though sparse. Pool was closed even though we had specified we wanted to use pool when we made our reservation. Carpets had just been cleaned and were soaking wet in every room. Couldn't walk in socks or bare feet. Bed was hard. Hallways smelled of cooking food. Hallways dim and dark. Outside door latches were broken, so doors were constantly propped open by guests. Go spend $20 more a night at any other place for a better stay. Or $30 less at any other place for this type of hotel.

Ground floor window was secured with a wood dowel - noticed others had same "lock" when I came back from dinner. Carpets cleaned that day and were still wet, had to wear shoes in room. Entire facility worn and dingy. I wouldn't have stayed if I hadn't already prepaid through an online bid.

I've stayed in other Super 8 facilities that were comfortable, not this one! I wouldn't recommend this Super 8.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to review us on TripAdvisor. I wanted to apologize for some of the issues you experienced during your stay. We do use wooden dowels to lock the windows as they are very secure. We also did have a carpet cleaning crew come carpet clean the entire hotel during your stay. We do this so we can make sure our carpet is clean and clear of stains for our guests. It does take a small time to dry though.

I do not like the rubber fuzzy blankets, I would like a larger mattress pad, one that covers the whole bed. overall a average room, clean and quiet.
