Everything ok except the room key cards did not want to work (tried a dozen or so) and the bath fan not working.

We stayed at the Super 8 at 2809 4th Avenue South , Clear Lake, Iowa, last weekend, August 3-4 for the Clear Lake Carshow and were very much disappointed. A person in our party was quoted a price of $80 some dollars and had booked multiple rooms for different parties for that weekend under his credit card number. The base rate was $109.00 plus tax which ended up being $122.08 a night. The morning continental breakfast was served with only three tables for all the rooms. Waffles, bagels, toast, cereal. And this weekend they would not give a Triple A discount which has never been refused before. We feel that we could stay at a different motel the same weekend for less money and better accommodations and a better breakfast where we didn't need to stand to eat.

Smelled like smoke, ground floor room windows did not seem very secure, could hear lots of noise from rooms around us, and beds and shower not the greatest...however, it is right off the highway ( easy access and easy to get back on the road), staff was super nice and helpful, breakfast was included, gas station/corner store/ATM practically in the same parking lot, all for a very affordable price!

My girlfriend and I stayed here it the end of March. We traveled to Mason City to see the Frank Lloyd Wright architectural sites and wanted a decent place to stay that wasn't too pricey. We decided to stay at the Super 8 because we didn't need a pool. We were very happy with our room. It had just been redone with new carpet, paint, and it had updated furnishings. The beds were comfortable, and the complimentary breakfast had plenty of choices to chose from, including waffles (my fav). We had a friendly staff and enjoyed our stay. We would definitely stay there again.

We spent a week here at the end of September. People live here and spend the evening going back and forth between rooms. You could smell food cooking and cigarette smoke all the time. We were awakened by someone trying to kick in the door in the room next to us. A young girl was looking for her "old man." Someone came out of another room to tell her he had gone. It looked like everyone knew each other and there was all kinds of drama. It's very isolated, there is no place to eat around here. Only two places deliver and they have a "special" menu just for delivery to this hotel, read crappy and expensive. Housekeeping never vacuumed once while we here. We have two more weeks to spend in town and it won;t be here!
