What a dump. Stayed here b/c other review. Wish we hadn't. Only two good things about this place: the girl at the front desk is very friendly, and Starbucks is located at the same I-20 exit (#84).

Stayed in room 102. It was so dirty that I made sure to wipe down all handles, knobs, seats, etc, with disinfectant. The desk chair had some debris ground into the fabric which could have been some sort of food - either prior to being eaten or after being eaten, if you get my drift. Toilet bowl was dirty, sheets were stained, floors disgusting, the refrigerator and microwave, which were not plugged in, were rusty and had crud on them, and the room smelled musty.

The room was in a state of disrepair. The towel rack fell off the wall when we removed a towel after a shower. The ironing board was leaning against the wall below the holes where it had obviously once been hanging. The iron was on top of the rusty clothes rack, instead of the designated spot with the board. Furniture chipped. Beds soft.

Breakfast most meager we've had, although hubby said that the biscuits and gravy were good. Corn flakes and Fruit Loops, English Muffins with jelly, two juices and coffee. A sweet roll.

Why did we stay there you ask? We had driven 400 miles, the last of which were through a terrible storm. We were exhausted and would have had to get back on the freeway and backtrack.

Call me a hotel snob but I'm not a big fan of budget motel/hotels but since this was the only place available for my trip, I stayed here. My stay was May 22nd to the 25th. I was in town for a college reunion in Grambling (3 miles away). The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was very clean, modern looking and everything worked including the a/c. The motel is conveniently located off the second Ruston exit of HWY 20 coming from Monroe. Two doors down is the Waffle House which is open 24 hours. The motel is on a business strip and near Louisiana Tech University so there are plenty of cheap places to eat, pizza, sandwiches, etc. The Chevron gas station was right across the street with a mini mart. I was actually surprised how quiet it was since this was a holiday weekend. Housekeeping was quick and the ladies were really nice and asked if I needed anything else which I did not. There was a complimentary continental breakfast but I slept in late so I missed it. No worries. The room had nice thick curtains, a short sofa with a table, a chair and table, cable TV, a nice long drawer for clothes, ironing board and iron, several outlets, a mini fridge, blow dryer, plenty of towels, alarm clock, shower /tub, 2 bed tables, nice carpet, and a coffee pot with coffee and tea.

I have to admit, since my first and only stay in a different budget chain hotel back in 1995 which was AWFUL, I have been humbled and would really like to say Super 8 was a really nice place to stay if you're on a tight budget or not. I had pre-paid for the room via Expedia.com and did not incur any additional charges. Also, check-in was quick and hassle free.

I also wanted to add that the front desk staff were really helpful giving me directions and suggestions especially the guy who drew a map for me (that was cool!). Great Southern Hospitality!

So, I give Super 8 Ruston, Louisiana 5 thumbs up and a happy simile! :)

Almost forgot, there is a pool but it was out of service. I didn't have time to swim anyway so I really wasn't concerned. There was also plenty of parking.
