“GROSS!”
Reviewed July 23, 2012 via mobile

Upon arrival, there was a pest control truck parked next to the office.
I couldn't understand the counter person.
The pillowcases were permanently stained body fluid yellow.
One pillow had two bloodstains on it. No joke.
The mattress was seemingly of the lowest quality possible.
I could go on, but you get the idea.
I immediately canceled my res. and went to another hotel.
Drive on.

We stayed here while traveling through the area. The accomodations are what you would expect for a discount - a clean room and free continental breakfast, but nothing too fancy. However, we were pleasantly surprised by the staff - the hotel manager was extremely helpful in helping us find a place to get our laundry done and good recommendations on local fare for dinner - both very helpful since we came through on our bikes and were too tired to explore on our own!

On a return trip from Florida my family and I stopped at the Super 8 in Joppa Maryland. I went in the room and layed down on the bed, not paying attention to the room due to being exhausted. My wife went to Wendy's to get some food and returned to the room. I had the lights out and was only using the TV for lighting. When she went in the bathroom she was horrified with its condition. There was dirt and crud all over the floor, tub and walls. There were several stains on the walls and the toilet was dirty. She didn't wake me because I was exhausted but in the morning I noticed the same thing. Even worse, there was what appeared to BLOOD splatter on the wall next to the bed we were sleeping in! She immediately packed our bags and went to the front desk to tell the desk. She told him and to her surprise his answer was "well I am not housekeeping". She went to the car and waited for me. As I was putting my shoes on there was a knock at the door. It was the desk guy coming in to see what she was complaining about. He said oh yeah looks like someone blew their nose on the wall. Then he said you know it's hard to find good help around here, enjoy your trip. Needless to say we were less than impressed with this place. I would recommend to anyone thinking of staying here to keep driving a few more miles.

Room Tip: Go somewhere else.

I thought readers might like to know that after reviewing this property, I had a note from Super8 head office, saying all the usual things, then the property's manager emailed me with apologies, undertaking to correct problems and promising to send me a coupon for a free night's stay. The coupon never arrived (no matter, I wouldn't stay there again anyhow) and judging from recent reviews, the property has not managed to overcome its weaknesses. All of this makes me wonder about Super8's franchisee oversight practices.

Room Tip: Keep driving!

We used this motel several times in the past years.
It must be under new ownership.
Judging by the people staying there ; It looks like a welfare motel and was not very clean.
I would never use it again.

Small rooms with not so good beds. Complimentary breakfast was a good one. Not a good idea to stay for more than a night and definitely not with a family. The 2nd floor is for the smokers and 1st for non-smokers. If you get a room close to the stairway you can smell cigaratte smoke. Has a good parking facility.

Room Tip: Away from the stairway and not towards the end

With a very good location just off I95 and a lovely setting, this *could* be an excellent choice. My room, although spacious, showed signs of poor maintenance: an old TV that had really bad picture quality, stains on walls and furniture, anchors for a missing picture (or maybe a mirror), etc. The grounds, featuring a large pond, are full of litter and old mattresses. Although the main building is set back from the highway and is quiet, the rooms don't seem to have been built with sound barriers so one hears the neighbours. I paid $69 (including a rip-off $10" pet fee") which isn't bad but I would hesitate to return fearing further deterioration here.

Room Tip: Try another inn
