“simply lacking”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

What this hotel offered for the price was poor. The bathroom... was small and I had to surgically remove the paper from the bath soap since it was so old. The beds... were only full size beds, and the pillows were not comfortable. Breakfast... the sitting area was tiny, the only positive was there was a waffle maker! Location wise it was on the outskirts of town and not within walking distance of really anything. Yet, with a town like Decorah, there are only 5 hotels and beggars can't be choosers.

This motel is ok for the tired driver that is just wanting to rest a night before moving on. Not the kind of motel that I would want to stay in for a extended stay. Its too bad the owners and employee's don't take a little more pride in their business. Make sure the bathrooms are spotless and the outside garbages are not always full. Our room still had painters tape around the trim in the bathroom. Sorry, but this is not how I want to spend my hard earned money.

Thank you for taking time to review our hotel, and we apologize for a less than enjoyable experience.
Our rennovation, which took place a little over a year ago, included a new bed, television, microwave, refrigerador, freshly painted walls, new carpet, hair dryers and all new sets of beds and linens. In addition to this our breakfast is well above the industry standard . Unfortunately we received no complaints pertaining to an air conditioner during the dates outlined, and therefore could not provide any way to rectify the situation. We would have been happy to work out any problem you would have had.
Yet again we thank you for your review.

I would recommend to anyone to stay at the Super 8 in Decorah! I have been staying here for business during the week for the past couple of months and the rooms are nice and clean and the staff is so friendly, if you need anything they are so pleasant and accommodating. This hotel gave me the best rates in town with the most quality. The rooms were nice and quiet with a flat screen TV, internet, a fridge and microwave! I definitely will stay here whenever i am in the area!

Very impressed by the newer decor in this Super 8, compared to a recent stay at another 8. Breakfast was average, no cinnamon rolls, but had waffles, biscuits and gravy, toast and cold cereal. Pleased to get to choose a room on the first flour as I was alone with 2 toddlers to maneuver. Would stay again!

They recently renovated but it was completely obvious that we were given what use to be a "smoking room" The smell was just stuck in there.. it was just in the air. The bedding was nice, the room was Ok. I was not really impressed at all in the accomodations, especially at the price we paid. I would say the one good thing was the staff. They were very friendly.

Room Tip: Ask for one that was never a smoking room if you are a non smoker.

Thank you for taking the time to complete a TripAdvisor review regarding your recent stay at Super 8 in Decorah. I am however sorry that you were inconvenienced by the odor of smoke in your room. it is true that we are a 100% non smoking property, with a $250.00 non-smoking fee if anyone is caught smoking in our hotel. if you contacted our team members during your stay and that we were able to offer you a different room for the rest of your stay. your feedback is incredibly important to us and we will difinitely take your comments into consideration to improve our in-property experience.
