“Don;t stay here!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2007

A train runs right behind the place,blowing the horn!
The walls are paper thin so any noise from outside or next door can be heard.
The continental breakfast is a jug of juice,a jug of milk,and a box of doughnuts,which must be eaten away from the tiny lobby.
The only elevator is up front,so you must walk the outside walkway down a narrow corridor to the room.
The fit and finish is shabby,the beds are rock hard,the furniture is worn and broken.
There are many motels nearby,stay at one of those!

I have nothing good to say about this place. It was as bad if not worse than most of the reviews I read. I booked it on hotwire so I didn't know the hotel before I booked it. We arrived and the first thing I notice was guests scooping ice out of a walmart type cooler to get ice for their room. The guest asked if they had any ice machines that worked and the attendant curt answer was NO, there all broke. I went to the room and it had a funny smell, the beds were made sloppy, the pillows were flat and the matrices were thin and uncomfortable. The room had no amenities, not even a coffee maker, The bathroom was dirty, and in disrepair. The tub creaked when you got into it and you could feel the rotten wood move underneath as you showered. The hot water ran out after one shower. Then there was the noise. It sounded like a cat house. I could hear everything going on in the surrounding rooms, and many of the guest sounded like they were partying and when when we finally drifted off to sleep we shot up several times throughout the night when it sounded like the train was coming through our room. It literally shakes the room and blows its horn as passing EVERY TIME. To add insult to injury, When we went down to get the complimentary breakfasts at 8 am it was all gone. I saw one guest get the last muffin, which is the only reason I new they had anything. The juice was gone as well, and the only thing they had left to offer was coffee. As I was checking out there was an elderly Gentleman trying to get his money back. He said he booked and prepaid his room on the internet but, he and his wife just couldn't stay there another night it was just too noisy he was saying. MY advise is STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE AND HOTWIRE TAKE IT OFF YOUR LIST IT DOESN'T EVEN RATE A STAR.

  • Liked — I can't think of a good thing about it.
  • Disliked — That would have to be the noise and the train.

Super 8 hotels are normally a good choice for budget travelers looking for a clean place to stay, but this hotel is just plain nasty! The carpets were badly stained, the room was dirty, and we spent most of our stay killing bugs. The TV didn't even have a remote. YUK!

I also had concerns about the train - didn't bother us. Pool looked ok - did not swim. Room was clean but shower wasn't the best. The "continental breakfast" was awful. It consisted of gallon of milk, gallon of Sunny D, Corn Flakes and box of melted glazed donuts (also coffee). Location was so-so, we stayed to go to Busch Gardens and Water Country USA - hike, 12 miles but was last minute booking.
Also be advised everything in the area closes around 9pm!!

Train went by every couple of hours blowing its horn. That was the good part.
Carpet was dirty and matted. Beds were hard and dented from people sleeping in them. My top sheet was thread bare in a number of places. Hot and cold faucets were switched. Bathroom was skanky.
If we hadn't paid for the room thru hotels.com($25 cancellation charge) we would have left as soon as we opened the door.
