“Couldn't sleep there”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2013

The room had that terrible antiseptic smell, everywhere. So did the towels. There was a mercury vapor light in the parking lot that shone through around the drapes all night long. The bedding was third rate: spotted, cheap, and the pillows were flat and hard from use. There was no elevator to the upper floors, so I had to shlep my baggage. The breakfast area was minute and I avoided it because other people were using it when I was ready for it. When traffic picked up outside, you could hear it in the room. You could also hear the thumping of people's footsteps in the room above mine. I paid around $ 65 for the room, but it would have been worth it spending another $ 20/30 in a better appointed place. The young man at the check-in desk was helpful and nice.

Room Tip: Stay on the lowest floor, to the right of the entry point--if you have to.

I have never stayed at super 8's before. this was my first time at this chain. To my surprise it was an outstanding experience, The beds were new and so comfortable, the room was very very clean , i mean very very clean!!!! The staff was amazing and always ready to help !!! I have stayed in some big names but frankly speaking I have never ever experienced such nice people. I can only say that it was really a great great experience-room was clean, hotel staff was nice and very nice and decent set up for the breakfast which was good for the day to start. I definitely recommend this hotel and would like to stay whenever i am in this area.

We booked this room at the last minute, after we arrived in town and discovered every other hotel in the Roanoke area was booked. It was a perfectly adequate room in a quiet part of town so we were pleasantly surprised with our stay. The facility is dated and the breakfast offerings were not particularly palatable, but there was free parking and free WiFi and the room was clean. Overall we were happy with the value for our money.

Great location and accessibility off I-81. Young man operating the desk was helpful and courteous. A barking dog in a 1st 1st floor room while inspecting a room before making a commitment was bit unsettling. . . . the 2nd floor was better with plenty of privacy and relatively quiet. A basic continental breakfast was probably the only bright star. Unfortunately there are only 2 very small tables for all guests. A decent priced motel with no serious deficiencies and of course nothing outstanding either. . . I would go back, but - ONLY because of the decent price! Phil H. S. Carolina.

Room Tip: Room access is only from the inside lobby area, park near the front desk entrance. This is a pet fri...
