“A really nice place and cheap price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

This is a Super 8 but it is like an upper tier motel. The room I stayed in was very nice. The service was excellent. They provide popcorn and fresh baked goods in the lobby. The breakfast is much better than the standard Super 8 breakfast and they even had fresh brewed iced tea.

Room Tip: The room I had was great, I would assume any of them would be the same

Remember, it's a Super 8. Nothing fancy, just a great price on a comfortable room. Excellent service and a nicely appointed lobby area with well cared-for rooms set this Super 8 above many of its peers. If you are looking for a budget motel, this one is nice. With a late check in, I was greeted with popcorn and gooey brownies in the lobby.

Otherwise, it was nothing special. There seemed to be an inordinately large gap under the door with light showing into the room from the hallway. Not a very private feeling. Plumbing is much like any cheap motel: you'll know it when anyone above you turns on the water. While the bed was fairly comfortable, the bedding was sub-standard with thin pillows.

Breakfast was the same standard fare you'll find at any of these places: fruit, cereal, biscuits and gravy, pre-packaged muffins and pastries, etc.

Bottom line: for the price, it's nice. It's clean. It's friendly.

Room Tip: Request a room with an outside entrance. Your room will still have an inside door to the hallway, bu...

This is about our third time staying here and it is an awesome stay for the price. The rooms are nice and well-maintained. The breakfast is much better than average at a hotel like this and the snacks provided in the lobby throughout the day are a nice touch. Also, when we arrived this last time, the very pleasant lady at the front desk informed me that, because it was a slow weekend, they had upgraded us to a family suite at no additional charge! I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for an economical but very nice place to stay.

This specific hotel had been recommended to us by a relative. In the past we have stayed at the "slightly more expensive" chains but when travelling through Missouri this will be our first choice from now on. The staff was very friendly. The room was great and the bed was the best hotel bed I've slept on in quite awhile. The breakfast was also very good. We used to travel from IA to TX on I 35 all the way through KS and OK. The route through Joplin and Lamar seems to be quicker. It's so nice to not fight the big city traffic and to find the big city hotels!
Stay at the Super 8 in Lamar and eat at the "Red, Hot, and Blue" BBQ restaurant in Joplin! They are two of the best!

There was another Super8 just a few miles up the road and it was less expensive, but we elected to pay more based on the exceptional ratings for this hotel........we were not disappointed.

The bed was very comfortable, the hotel was very clean and the staff was friendly and attentive. The quality of the continental breakfast was good, but was nothing special.

I felt that the cost was slightly on the high side for the location and type of hotel, but I have never stayed in this area before, so I'm not sure what comparable lodging costs in that area.

I would stay there again.
