Given that there were only two choices in town (right next door to each other!), we took our chances with the Super 8, based in part on TripAdvisor Reviews. I should mention that we normally stay in places like Hampton Inn, Fairfield Inn, maybe a Radisson once in a while, so this was our first experience with a Super 8 and we weren't quite sure what to expect.
Finding the place was a little challenging, as my phone suddenly dropped service as we entered town (I relied on my phone's map, while my husband was looking at the car's gps--which also flipped out a little bit). Both hotels are a little hard to see as they are located back from the main road near a McDonalds and a WalMart. The good thing was that the hotel's free wi-fi made up somewhat for my phone's missing service while we were there.
The parking lot seemed a little "sketchy," but I'm not sure why--maybe just because it's older and not as brightly lit as some places we've stayed. When we got inside, the women at the front desk were extremely nice and very helpful and welcoming, which is a big plus. The lobby area was small and brightly lit with a tv in the corner. There is no elevator.
The room was very basic, somewhat "tired" but clean, with two beds, a separate sink outside the bathroom, and a small table with two chairs. The full-size beds were smaller than we are used to, so we didn't sleep well. The view out the back was of trees, which is a nice change from the usual parking lot, railroad tracks, or worse. While it was generally very quiet, we were able hear noise from another room at 3am (other guests complained and, as far as I know, the hotel staff took care of it). Breakfast was pretty typical.
Overall it was a decent stay for the price--no real complaints after one night. We might stay there again if we were in town, but we also might try one of the newer places 20-30 minutes away instead, though those were at least an extra $20/night.
