When I booked this room, I was not expecting much. I just wanted a place to sleep after a long day at the beach. That said, this was worse than I thought it would be. When I walked in the lobby, there was no A/C. I'm pretty sure the computer the guy checked me on was running pre-Windows 95 software. Our room was on the side of the hotel opposite of the highway. As we walked to our room I noticed that nearly every door had forced entry at one point or another. Not a good sign. The rusted A/C units from the upstairs rooms were leaking water on to our heads as we walked by. I opened the door to our room to find a unique blend of smells. The room smelled of dollar store cleaner and old wet blankets. Looking around, the carpet was torn in many places, the floor was uneven, and everything had a layer of grime on it. The comforters on both of our beds had huge holes in them. I can only assume the hotel was trying to convert the blankets into Snuggies. The other sheets on the bed felt like they had been washed a few thousand times with rocks. The TV was probably way ahead of its time in 1985, but only had 12 channels. LITERALLY, 12 channels. The bathroom was more dated than should be allowed. The walls were 1960's wallpaper green with broken pieces scattered along the wall. The bathtub was perhaps suitable for washing pets, but nothing more. The towels they gave us were one small step above shop rags and were probably less absorbent. I think the picture is clear. Being that it was late and we were tired, we stayed. We were woken up many times throughout the night with idiots next to us banging on the door at 130am and a yelling match going on in the parking lot. Nothing like a good old fashioned yelling match to put me right to sleep. Some of this could be due to the fact that this "Super" 8 has a Sports Bar on the premises. So, we made it through the night and I decided it would be interesting to see what "breakfast" was offered. I was not disappointed in my inquiry. The breakfast consisted of: expired Fruit Loops, expired Raisin Bran, old toast, doughnuts that a grocery store threw in the dumpster prior to being claimed by this Super 8, a broken juice machine, unlabeled packages of something that resembled oatmeal, and coffee. In summary, if you enjoy the show Fear Factor or need a good backdrop for a horror film, this is right up your alley. This is not a hotel for kids or people in general.
Avoid entirely. Sleeping in a small tent would be better.
