“Refused to stay!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

My son & I checked in and checked out two hours later. Upon entering the room we immediately noticed a mildew or musty smell. The black mold/mildew was 6 to 8 inches high on the tile around the tub. We had been at an outdoor activity all day, in August, and were looking forward to cooling off in the pool... DISGUSTING! It appeared not to have been vacuumed in weeks. The final straw: I went into the bathroom, closed the door and there was a wet bath towel hanging on the back of the door; it was not ours. We found another property and checked out. The lady at the front desk was extremely kind and helpful. She was the only satisfying thing about this property. Don't Go!

We unexpectedly came into Sandusky and had our dog with us so this was the only place we could find that would take pets. The bathroom was so disgusting, there was mold in between the ceiling tiles. The floor was just as bad. The bed sheets were stained and the pillows had big yellow stains on them like someone had drooled all over them. Around 1am we were awakened by some partiers right outside our front door. They were drinking, smoking and swearing, waking up our 9 year old. Then in the morning we found beer cans everywhere. There was garbage behind our beds and dresser. There was so much static on the TV that we could barely watch anything. This is by far the most disgusting hotel stay we have ever had. AVOID THE SUPER8 IN SANDUSKY, OHIO. We stayed in room 133.

Room Tip: If you want a good room, do not stay here!

Stayed at this location for 2 nights, thankfully we did not have to stay in the room very much! The air conditioner cover was falling off, there were bugs in the bathroom, the vent in the bathroom was so loud it was almost intolerable. The tv wasn't plugged in and the batteries in the remote were dead, room service was very rude when we asked for replacement batteries. No bulbs in the lamps...I could go on and on... The check in clerk was very nice and if you could stand showering around the bugs, there was hot water for days. It was uber hot and there was one ice machine for the whole place and an empty swimming pool!

Room Tip: Go somewhere else!

We called ahead to reserve a NON SMOKING suite. We were told there was only one suite available so we took it. Having had a good experience with the Super 8 we visited in St. Charles, MO, we looked forward to a similar experience here. We were WRONG, and we stayed only because we were too exhausted to search for another motel. We were given a SMOKING room that reeked naturally of cigarettes; thankfully there was a Walmart in walking distance so my husband bought some Febreeze. If a smoke smell was "the worst" we could deal with it. Alas, as time went on we discovered more: The outdoor pool was GREEN and CLOUDY. No way we would swim in it. The bathroom was **DISGUSTING** - the grout on the floor and the shower was filthy dirty; so dirty that I didn't want to step on the floor in my bare feet. The bathroom ceiling had a bulging hole above the toilet that looked like it had been there a while. The toilet had a difficult time flushing.There were dead bugs and goldfish crackers on the floor in the room. The continental breakfast was mediocre - the coffee was undrinkable. Overall: YUCK.

Room Tip: Choose a good room by choosing a different motel!!!!!!!!

Booked a night at the Super 8 Sandusky North as a place to stay after visiting Cedar Point. We checked in at about 5:30 pm and the man at the front desk was very unwelcoming. He barely spoke to me, just looked at me when I approached the counter after waiting 15 min for the couple before me to finish their check in, even though there was another employee working at the desk just doing small tasks. The room was very plain with old furniture and carpet. Everything was just acceptable enough to stay. After resting for a few minutes we decided to try the pool. After getting ready and walking to the pool we turned right back around and back to our room. The pool was gross! There was rust all along the edges near the stairs and a cloudy muck in the water. Toward the deeper end, you could not even see the bottom. Even ther area around the pool was unkept. After retuning to the room I made a visit to the front desk to ask for a few more pillows. The same man was at the desk and again just looked at me. While I waited for him to go in the back to put pillowcases on some pillows for me, a pizza delivery guy came to the door with a giant box and knocked on the door until I went and let him in. It was just a little strange.

Be your own judge... My husband and I travel alot and found the hotel clean and comfortable, if your looking for a 5 star this is not the hotel for you, but if your not fussy this is a good place at a good price the rooms are standard (nothing fancy). The pool is always clean, the staff are wonderful they will do whatever they can to make you comfortable. The location is perfect you can walk to alot of amentities.

Booked a two night stay using Wyndam Rewards. Never again will we use a Super8. The positives?? Check in clerk was efficient and very nice...her name is Debbie. There was plenty of hot water...After that is was all down hill. The room was filthy. There were dead bugs in the bathroom, feces splattered under the toilet seat, bits of toilet paper in the floor, exhaust fan sounded like nothing I can describe. The table had all the veneer peeled of the sides,. chairs were stained, no bulbs in the lamp, TV not plugged in and then the remote didn't work, asked the maid for batteries and she asked me if I could just go ask the front desk. One working ice machine for the entire hotel, internet was down, battery door open on the smoke detector and no battery. Hottest weekend of the year and a holiday weekend and no water in the pool, electrical outlets couldn't hold a plug, air conditioner cover barely hanging on. Very strange odor in the room.

Room Tip: Pick another hotel
