Dirty, stinky, and absolutely the WORST hotel/motel I've ever stayed in. The whole place stank with stairwells smelling of urine, the dark hallways being musty and the room oder being unrecognizable. Carpets felt greasy, the rooms looked like they had water damage, and the TV constantly sparked. Service was also nonexistent. It took two days of requests from several people to get an alarm clock. The ironing board (after is was FINALLY delievered) was stained and foul. What was called a "continental breakfast" was some rank frozen coffee concentrate mixed with hot water, a few cereals, some muffins and bagels, and frozen concentrate juice. The towels and washcloths were stained and sheets never changed during the stay. The one washer and dryer was broken for days with no attempt to repair. I was solicited by a prostitute the first day outside the front door. Avoid this hotel!!!!!

This hotel is absolutely disgusting. The linens are all discolored, the floor is sticky, and the room reaked. The all-night action in the parking lot only further enhanced this rotten hotel experience. Don't be fooled that just because it's a chain that they'll adhere to any such standards. This was the most disgusting hotel I've ever seen in my life. Sleep in a box on Route 1, you'll sleep better.

The Melbourne Super 8 may or may not be typical of this chain. But while I was there, I noticed that the carpets were sticky, the air conditioner was not actually sealed into the wall (thus allowing the humid FL air back into the room ...) the water appeared rusty when first turned on, and the table and chairs in the room appeared to be coming unglued.

On the bright side, the TV worked. Not that it provided a clear or consistent picture, but it worked well enough to see a late night rerun or two. You'd want the TV to be on at night to drown out the noise of the semis that park (but don't turn off their engines) next to the motel. Not in the motel parking lot, as far as I could tell, but just "next door" under the lights. Did I mention the lights the motel has that illuminate the night, and shine into the windows? Now I have.

It was only six months or so since this part of FL had been hit by multiple hurricanes when I stayed at this Super 8 in Melbourne FL, but jeepers folks, at least put some duct tape around the air conditioner.
