“Norman Bates type maintenance man!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2011

I haven't stayed in many hotels in my life and like them to be cheap. Super 8 generally fits the bill. I like this hotel but after staying at the Renaissance near OXMOOR the Super 8 in Homewood seems unacceptable. The carpet is not clean, the lighting has prevented me from preparing for my presentations the previous night, the WI-FI was not consistent and the breakfast ends too early.

The finally straw was the guy they sent to fix the shower. I think he stays at the hotel but it seemed creepy. I would stay here again but the LIGHTING (low) is unacceptable.

If you like a filthy room, with plenty of DNA evidence, this could be your place. Seriously, it is dirty, the power went out just as I entered my room, the carpeting was soiled, the bathroom wasn't cleaned and was worn out. Not worth $25/night, much less the $55 or so I paid.

Not much to rave about here. No major complaints but it just wasnt anything fancy. Could use some updating, hallways were old/musty. Bathroom was clean, but toilet was old and took forever to flush. Location was decent, an exit away from walmart, and we found a great dollar theater a few exits down as well. Internet and AC were great, breakfast was ok, but ended at 9am (too early!). would choose a different hotel if we returned to the area, as I was trying to find a deal, but wish I had found something nicer.

There were several people hanging out in the parking lot...am not sure if they were homeless or what. The room was very old and had a small bathroom. The ceiling had brown spots. As we were going down the hallway in the morning, we saw a note on one of the doors that said they had moved to another room because of bugs. Breakfast was frozen waffles, dry cereal, and doughnuts. Ceiling in breakfast nook was very brown and partially repainted white patches. If we hadn't been traveling with a moving van and weren't so tired, we would have left immediately.
