Super 8 Spencer
Ranked #4 of 6 Hotels in Spencer
Reviewed August 4, 2011

We were attending a family reunion at Lake Okoboji and could not find any accommodations at the lake for a one night stay. We selected the Super 8 Hotel in Spencer, and it is a short and easy drive to West Okoboji from the hotel. The room was very spacious and contained a small refrigerator and microwave as well as a table with two chairs. The room was quiet except for the occasional barking of dogs. As the hotel does not allow pets, I presume the barking came from the animal hospital next door. You may want to request a room on the side of the hotel opposite the animal hospital just in case. The free breakfast in the morning was the standard fare of cereal, bagels, orange juice, coffee and tea. It was fine.

My sister and I stayed here on our cross country trip. It was neat and clean. The best part of it was the friendliness and helpfulness of the people working there. They truly cared about us. They made sure we had everything we needed and wanted our opinions. Tony was working the front desk in the morning and chatted with us when we went down for breakfast. He was extremely helpful with ideas on things to see as we drove across Iowa and gave us directions and everything. We followed his advice and had the best day! One thing he told us about was the Field of Dreams and I was so happy we stopped there! The next night I realized that I had left the power cord for my laptop at the hotel. I called and got Tony and he said that they had found it and he would put it in the mail for me. He carefully packaged it up, brought it to the post office and mailed it to me! All he charged was the postage. Now that goes above and beyond!! I was so grateful! If we are ever in this area again I would definitely stay here again!!

I had to stay at this hotel during a business trip. It was the only place that we could find with the number of rooms we needed for our group. It was terrible. Everything was dirty. I actually used a t-shirt I had with me to put over the pillow, so that my face didn't hit the sheets. The bathtub was full of hair. It was really run down. We won't stay there again. I would rather sleep in my car.

I have stayed at this hotel for the past several summers when I have visited in the area. It is an older Super 8, but it has been very well kept up and the people there are friendly. It is a clean motel where everything works in the room. The only thing is if you like to stay in a hotel where they have somebody there 24 hrs, this is not the place for you because they close up the desk at 11pm. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone.
