I know it was only a super 8 so what can I expect......right ? The hotel is located just off the highway (very convenient) and is close to a Miriad of restaurants. You can find ANYTHING you could want to eat and be back at your hotel in ten minutes. The lobby is tiny and the front desk was basically in the breakfast area. The woman at the desk was very nice but needs a vacation desperately. She seemed to ALWAYS be there. I got my room on the third floor and carried my things up the 3 flights to my room (no elevator). The first thing I noticed, because I had no choice was the overwhelming stench of stale cigarette smoke. The hotel is layed out with smoking and non smoking rooms next to each other (why would you do that ? The room was clean, but there was a problem the toilet did not work. Back down three flights. I told the front desk that I was going to need a new room. As it turned out the handyman was right there and went up and fixed the toilet. The pool looked clean and well maintained. My biggest pet peave is no wake up call or even worse......leaving a wake up call and NEVER GETTING IT !!! The last day I was there I left a 6:30 am wake up call and fortunately woke on my own at 6:00 am because the call never came.
