We had a non-smoking room, but there are many smoking rooms across the hall. So there is a pungent smell throughout the hallway AND in the non-smoking room. Overall, room fairly clean but outdated. CRT TV. Towels in bathroom were stained and dingy... very nasty. My room had a fridge and microwave, which was nice. Continental breakfast was adequate but barebones: coffee, juice, choice of 2 cereals, choice of 2 breads, pre-packaged cinnamon buns, waffles, and yogurt. The -price charged to me was $5 more than my non-refundable reservation made directly on super 8 website... no excuse for that. Wifi was spotty. No elevator, and they put us on 3rd floor. Ok for me, but for many it would be a challenge.
