Okay so like, it's a Super 8, right? It's a chain that's made a name for itself by being an affordable room when you need it. And this Super 8 is exactly that - and more! I paid my 50 bucks a night (!!! - cheapest in town!) and, for that, I got a clean room which was *quiet* (I can't stress how wonderful this is - more later), had a great selection of cable TV channels (my girlfriend and I are huge BAR RESCUE fans...for some reason...), a King size bed, a nice tub for relaxing baths, and a reception desk staff that was more than happy to accommodate requests (keep in mind, my two requests were "one more pillow" and "more coffee" - if you ask for a slow loris [yeah, Google it], you're probably not going to get it). What's more, we decided to spend an extra night (it was Spring Break, we're two professors, we can if we want), but we spent it in a casino hotel room which was a little more expensive. Okay so fine, it was dressed a little better, but I could hear *right* into the next room! At the more expensive hotel! (*cough* Resorts...) I wanted my Super 8 back.
Super 8's are America. Make no mistake about it. Super 8's are a state of mind that takes you out of the daily grind and puts you into a room that has everything you need and doesn't care if you eat in the bed. This is why my family immigrated to the U.S. from Greece in 1951. (And probably some other stuff about freedom.) My girlfriend and I live in a one bedroom apartment in Queens, NY, above a man who invites over half of Tijuana and lets the mariachi band go nuts until four in the morning and below a woman who must turn into the Jolly Green Giant at night. We send our ridiculous rent checks to a woman we never see, and pray to God things stay that way. The fact that this Super 8 exists, in the paradise that is Atlantic City, is nothing short of a miracle. We live a life that ought to be what Dante reserved for traitors and infidels, yet at this Super 8, we felt like royalty.
Super 8, we're in you wherever we go. Even when we're not there, we're there. We're pining. Stay at this Super 8. Please? Just go for it. One block up is the beach, one block down is a liquor store. It's basically heaven.
Oh, and we totally had sex on every surface of the room, and you should, too!
