“Bed Bugs !”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

Bed Bugs ! I had the misfortune of staying at the Super 8 in Thurmont, MD Oct 2 and 3 '13 during a 6 week road trip for business. I awoke the first morning with a few bites I attributed to an hour the previous evening outside . The second morning I woke early to discover hundreds of bed bug bites on my upper torso. (See Photo) I imagine that bed bugs can happen anywhere and it is how an owner deals with them that you should judge the establishment.
When I showed the new owner of 1 year, Mr Jatin Thakkar, my bites, rather than apologizing or trying to make it right he was belligerent and confrontational . I was told if I left now he would give me a 25% discount on the two nights I was there but if I said a word I would get nothing back and be charged for the next 2 nights of my 4 night reservation. I was there with a group who occupied three quarters of the hotel and do so every year for a local event. When I mentioned this he told me he didn't need our business to pay his bills. Arrogance on top of belligerence is a bad combination for a business man. He portrays himself as a devout man. I am sorry but a devout man would not mistreat a traveler. He brings shame and disgrace on his family and company. I have traveled five continents, including India, and I get bed bugs in Maryland, USA. Isn't that a kick !--J Downing

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

This is the first Super 8 I've stayed in ever. And, it was exactly what I expected. Reasonably clean, comfortable bed, quiet, and inexpensive (but not cheap). Service at the counter was slow, and the breakfast so uninviting that my wife and I passed on it and went down the street to one of the town's "family restaurants." I wouldn't rush to stay here again but it is a high value accommodation and those are sometimes exactly what I want -- as in this instance.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

To break up a solo return trip from Bluemont, VA to my Burlington, VT home, I stayed at the Thurmont, MD Super 8.

Summary: It is an easy/quick on/off the highway, with a good firm bed, quiet, and pleasant staff.

While I was there less than 7 hours (11:30 PM arrival, 6:00 AM departure), I would stay
here again if I was in a similar situation. Plus is it near restaurants, gas stations, and
a grocery store.
