“Fleas”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

My husband and I stayed at this Super 8 in Carroll IA on August 8 2013. Booked hotel online and didn't see that there were two Super 8 motels in Carroll. Who would have thought a town that size had 2 Super 8's.

The room was on the first floor which you walk down steps. It smelled musty and moldy. We had both our little dogs with because this was a "pet friendly" motel. They picked up fleas. Now we are in the painful process of bombing our home and car and washing everything in the house. Thank you Super 8!

Upon entering the room, It also smelled.. I went to turn on the ac and there was dust and cobwebs everywhere.

It was disgusting! They need to do a lot to get this place going. I will not ever return to this motel, and I am telling everyone know about this experience.

Room Tip: Do not go to this Super 8 there is another one on the other side of town.

We're sorry for your inconvenience but we wash everything in the room after pets have been in that room, and we get hotel sprayed every month to prevent bugs, fleas etc.... But Animals get fleas from being outside or around another animal with fleas.

The lobby and the room had an odor upon entering, old key card on the nightstand, a ripped top sheet on the bed, a broken lamp shade hanging askew on the lamp, a tissue on the ground behind the nightstand and no shower curtain. Would not stay again. Did not try the complimentary breakfast as I just wanted to get out. Price was affordable, that's all I can say for it.

This Super 8 is under new ownership. Yes, there is a lot of work to be done to bring it up to an "average" rating, but from my conversations with Shiv, they have the plans in place to get it done. We stayed on the "first" floor. Our room was really pretty nice, not as bad as what others have written. Our bathroom was clean. Our linens were new-ish. We did not have any bad or unusual smells. The management was friendly to us. OK, so that's the good. The "breakfast" was sub-par and the place needed to be vacuumed..no, carpet needs replacing, but I think that is on their list of to do's. Overall, not great, but we travelled with our 19lb. terrier and this was the only pet friendly motel in town. Give the new owners a year and maybe the place will be worth another look.

First floor is under ground, musty and the carpet felt damp. Trim around the bathroom door coming off, bed spread looked very dirty, and found someone else's hair on everything from the chair to carpets. I usually have great stays at super 8's but this one we will never stay at again!!!!

No one to greet you as you come in! Smells like smoke when you walk in the front office! Room Stinks like MILDEW and got a headache from it! Went to close the door on the bathroom and there where someone else's dirty underwear on the floor. DISGUSTING!!! And the A/c didn't cool our room.
