2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

We pulled in to the Super 8 late after making a reservation by phone from the road. We were attracted to the great price, promise of a recent renovation, and great reviews about the management. We were on a smoke free floor, however, \a strong stale smoke odor permeated the space. In fact, days later, all clothing that were in our suitcase in that room STILL smelled. This wasn't the result of one person violating the smoke free floor rules (this is going to happen and I trust, if reported, the kind manager would deal with it well). I mentioned this to the manager upon checkout and without my asking, he credited my bill 20%. Breakfast was great, the room was clean and comfortable, though not big enough for BOTH the pack n play AND toddler air mattress we brought with us. Would love to say that I will stay there again as it is a great overnight spot for a long distance drive I do a few times a year. I will check back in to see other reviews to see if the smoking issue seems to have been addressed. Otherwise, we'll be looking for another place to stay in Cranberry.

First time we have stayed at this motel. Overall quality was very good. Compared to pricing on other motels in the area, this motel is an excellent value. Rooms were well equipped with TV larger than typically seen in motels, frig, microwave, coffee maker and hair dryer. Beds and pillows were comfortable. Will definitely stay here again.

Put me on smoking floor and smelled so bad I got nauseous and had to change rooms to no smoking. That room was satisfactory but stilled smelled and had light out. Towels were like sand paper.

I stayed here for more than a week this month. The hotel seems like it's recently been remodeled. The room was very nice with a flat screen tv, shower/bath, fridge with small section of freezer, microwave and comfortable bed. Everything you need for a short stay! The things I didn't like were that this hotel doesn't have a washer and dryer for guests to use so you wind up going to the laundry mat if staying for a long period of time. This is one of the only hotels in the area that doesn't have a pool, hot tub, or exercise room. Housekeeping doesn't speak English beside a few words. They can't speak a full sentence in English which made it very difficult to ask for something or have a conversation if you didn't need the whole room cleaned, etc. I wound up going to the front desk instead. I feel like it would be beneficial to them as well as the people that interact with them if they would learn enough English to get them through a conversation dealing with housekeeping. When you choose a job dealing with the public, it only seems necessary. They seemed very friendly though as well as people working the front desk. I would stay here again if it was for a short visit. The room had everything I needed.

Room Tip: The walls seem thin! I usually didn't have people staying on either side of me but a few nights...
