“Best Super 8 ever!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

Stayed in a lot of Super 8's, but this one is the best of all!! 3rd time staying here!! A/C is ALWAYS on when you arrive. Room is nice and cold. Room is very spacious. Very well lit. Great ceiling fan. Staff is very friendly and courteous. If all Super 8's were like this one, I would always stay at a Super 8.

This place was the nicest hotel for the most affordable price when I searched through American Express Travel and Trivago. First thing you need to know about SPI is that nearly all the hotels on the island are old so you aren't going to find a beautiful resort unless you pay a HUGE sum of money.

Super 8 was the perfect size, 2 Queen beds. They weren't super comfy by any means but they were beds. The comforters were scratchy and no matter how many times we showered, cleaned, and no matter how hard the housekeepers worked, sand was everywhere. All over the tile floor, in the bed, on the small table, on the TV...it's just everywhere.

Aside from that, the A/C worked great and we really had no problems at all with staying there.

Except for the family a few doors down who always seemed to have their kids just sitting outside on the walkway for some reason. I'm pretty sure they were the ones who peeled stickers off our Jeep. But that's not the hotel's issue. lol
Oh and there's no beach access but you can drive across the street and Wanna Wanna's access is pretty close by.

We were too lazy to get up early enough to try the free breakfast in the morning so I can't comment on that but it's hard to go wrong with waffles.

Room Tip: We chose a first floor room just because climbing stairs with luggage and ice chests in 90%+ humidit...

This facility is in a good location, reasonably priced, clean rooms and the staff is friendly. It is located just north of Coconuts and Lagoona Bob's. Senior Donkey ' restaurant is next to it. Excellent Mexican food. Seconds from the bay and walking distance to the beach.

The only reason this place is even getting 1 is the staff was fairly friendly and the ac worked good.
As for the place the itself let me see…the pool was green and nasty. The breakfast was a waffle iron and cereal and thats it and they have the nerve to have a sign asking you not to bring food to your room(what food)? The room has a semi fresh coat of paint slapped over all the old dirt. The ceiling fan made more noise than a 747 coming in for a landing. They had no ice machine that worked…at a beachside location…really. The bed was fairly new but very cheap. Good thing that I used my free Wyndham Rewards points for this stay are I would be pissed. Won't be back.

You used Wyndham points there are three properties on SPI associated with Wyndham, Super 8, Travelodge (both which I own) and Ramada next to Super 8. Stay at the Ramada and you will be back to either Super 8 or Travelodge. Also as I mentioned in previous posts if there is a problem with your room please let the front desk know immeadiately and it they do not remedy the problem call my cell phone 214 448 8080 if your are not satisfied you can be released from your reservation and go to which ever hotel you like. We have two ice machines both of which are working. If they are not working and you call me I will give you money to buy ice across the street at the convenience store plus $10 for your trouble. Beds are better quality than any other Super 8 in Texas I will wager that. Ceiling fan - first complaint in over 300 reviews on that and same with paint over dirt that is a new one two
