“NOT RECOMENDED!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

Our group has stayed in other Super 8 Motels on previous trips and have always been satisfied. As we were passing through St Cloud, MN we saw the Super 8 Motel sign and decided to see if there were any rooms available. The lobby and hallway had a vey unpleasant odor and should have been the first clue that all was not well. Unfortunately we decided to take our chances and book a nights stay. We went to our rooms and immediately returned to the lobby to cancel our stay. The room smelled of stale cigarette smoke (even though it was a non-smoking room), the carpet is disgusting and needs a deep cleaning, the curtains didn't completely close, the windows were filthy, air conditioner didn't appear to be working, the bathroom needed a thorough cleaning, the bedding had seen better days. The "laundry area" was nothing but a washer and dryer (that had seen better days) stuck in the middle of the hallway at the top of the stairs. It appeared that a vending machine had been removed and been replaced with one washer & one dryer. The lobby and breakfast area were dingy,dirty, and smelly. I would not want to eat anything prepared in that motel. The ONLY positive thing I can say is we were able to cancel our room and received a full refund. With the number of motels available in the area, the Super 8 would be the absolutely LAST place I would stay. In fact if it was the only place available I would continue on down the road.

Even though Super 8 advertises itself as a budget motel, the rate was almost as much as the nicer Holiday Inn just down the street! There was also no hot water in the shower. The bottom sheet had either pet or human hairs on it. But, the hotel was full and housekeeping was gone by the time I went to bed. Then, they had kids yelling, running, and banging on doors all night long. Many guests complained but the clerk was indifferent. A lady in front of me complained and she got a full refund. But when I complained, I was told there was no money in the till. So, I offered to compromise and asked for a 50% refund. But, then the clerk said that she would have to call the manager to grant the refund. I ended up missing my bus, while waiting for approval, and had to end up taking a bus much later in the afternoon. They inconvienanced me greatly, had indifferent clerks who did not care if their guests, some in poor health, did not get any rest, and could only offer a partial refund. NEVER AGAIN! STAY AWAY!

i agree with radtech4 this motel was the worst super 8 i've ever stayed, they should be close for cleaning and repairs. the room was dirty, light fixtures were falling off the wall. no bulb in the lamp over the table. the window screen looked as if someone had forced it open. there was hair on the toilet, the head board and pictures looked like someone had spray a can of pop all over it, the staff needed to be given showers and taught how to dress, and should be taught manners, and customer relations. the front entry was filled with tables and chairs, not easy to get into. the room reeked of smoke, my clothing smelled the same after staying there one night. the guy at the front desk told five customer after me that he only had one room left and it was a smoking room five time come on.

This motel was hands down by far the worst Super 8 we have ever stayed at :( The lobby area was disgustingly dirty and messy and the night clerk was ill-prepared and made awkward comments. Felt unsafe here and would not recommend, very over priced for the room and minimal breakfast and staff was below average.

The lobby airconditioner did not work and soaked the carpet. The front desk staff was not helpfull. The breakfest room was very small and dirty. The room smelled funny and the internet went out.

The rooms were flighty -- will never stay here again. Look like the vacuum had not been run in a long time, disgusting stains on the carpet. This review is from 2 men who are returning from a hunting trip whose standards are not real high -- but this hotel was disgusting!
