This is a quiet location on the south side of Topeka. Easy to access the hotel and easy to get anywhere in Topeka. Our kids played softball at Lake Shawnee. It was a very easy drive to the softball fields from this location.

My husband and I stayed there this past weekend & was really surprised at how "NOT Super" our experience was. The hotel is located in a run down area of town next to a pool hall & strip joint. The actual facility was like staying in a 1980's flashback motel. The High Speed Internet was at 1/2 a bar consistently, so in reality there really was no 21st century internet connection. The common areas were not air conditioned, felt like a sauna. The actual room was muggy & had not been aired out for a while, the room décor was circa 1980's (& not in a good way) 20 inch TV (not a flat screen!). The bed was hard and lumpy (definitely not a pillow top if it was it was the cheapest ever), we had 2 airline size pillows for our king size bed. When we asked for additional pillows, we were treated like we had asked for something soo extravagant we were told that we were only allowed 2 because they may not have enough for everybody (The hotel was half booked maybe). When we asked for utensils so we could eat our take out dinner, we were told that plastic utensils get locked up after breakfast (this was around 9pm after a long travel day. Who locks up disposables!?!) & the front desk person Sarah D (ever gracious, NOT!) suggested we go back to the restaurant & get the utensils we needed to eat our dinner! Wait it's not over yet, there was no consistent hot water to the 3rd floor JACUZZI room, water pressure was not good it took a good 30 minutes to heat up the water & half fill the Jacuzzi. Do not expect any hot showers, the shower never got warm! Microwave was not available, & we did not want to ask. The customer service was so bad that we felt like mentioning the lack of hot water & water pressure would have brought us nothing but more bad stares from the front desk. Unfortunately due to this horrible experience we will never be staying in a Super 8 again, & could not believe they had a Certificate of Excellence from Tripadvisor!?! Very disappointed with Tripadvisor, we had always trusted the certificate but for this property that was misleading.

Room Tip: Do not stay at this flashback motel!!!!!

After reading this review several times over the last 24 hours since it was posted all I can think of to say is this, I will offer anyone a 20% discount on your stay to come and stay in our hotel and form your own opinion of our facility. You need to book with our property direct for this discount is not available through any 3rd party venues. We value our guests very much as well as their opinions. We are ALWAYS looking for ways to improve and welcome any and all suggestions.
