This was by far the worst choice we made of our vacation in November 2012. We needed one night in a motel / hotel before checking into our resort for a couple weeks R & R. We made the mistake of grabbing one of those travel magazines at the welcome center as we entered Florida. After finding an add for the Super 8, it seemed reasonable for a cheap night before vacation fun. We called and made the reservation, but when we got there 2 1/2 hours later, they had no reservation for us. The man insisted he was the only one on duty all evening and even though I showed him my 9 minute call on my cell phone log to his motel reservation line, he insisted he did not talk to me. He found us a room anyway but told us it was against his policy because he only rents 1/3 of the rooms each day so his wife does not have to clean so many. I lost my first floor room (handicapped), but made due for the night. The room was mediocre. Nothing special but not extremely bad either though the sheets would not stay on the beds. The wi-fi did not work. Breakfast was horrible.
When we checked out in the morning, the same man was on duty and he tried to raise our rates $10. He also made me pay with credit card, and he refused to give me points for their rewards program. He told me if I wanted points, I would have to pay another $10. My best advice, go down the street to one of the many fine chain hotels. Most are $10 more but are much nicer.
