“Terribly dirty room”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2006

We rented two rooms for two nights during Homecoming weekend. The rooms had a VERY STRONG smell of disinfectant (like a nirsing home) and the floor near the window was "spongy" (possibly a subfloor problem). I went to the office to let them know two lightbulbs were burned out, they didn't have any new ones. There was hair on the bathroom floor and there was not a mirror by the sink. No hair dryer in room despite their advertising there would be. Therer was food particles on the floor (chips?0 which obviously was not vaccummed. I would not advise anyone to stay at this motel.

  • Liked — close to campus
  • Disliked — Smelly, dirty room, dirty bathroom, spongy floor, not vacuumed. no mirror by sink
  • Tips/Secrets — Do not stay here.
  • Stayed September 2006, traveled as a couple

Please disregard all the 5 star ratings that go on and on about how courteous and professional the staff is. The staff is NOT professional, in fact who hired these people? Common people please realize that the staff are the one's writing these rave reviews. Yes the location is nice and I do realize that you get what you pay for, but if you take nothing more from this... HEED THE WARNINGS! Read all the negitave posts below and you will have a true feel for what to expect! This place is wreched, and they should be charged with false advertising. The pictures do not do these rooms justice, as the pictures posted are far and away better.

This hotel is in a good location and reasonably priced. I know you get what you pay for, but there were a few issues at the hotel with cleanliness. The staff tried to be accomodating and courteous.

I stayed here while visiting a few friends at Michigan State University and was greatly impressed with the stay. The staff was extremely friendly and the room was overall very clean and professional for the low price. The closeness to the campus was also a plus. Definately will stay again next time I visit.

It is by far the most disgusting hotel i have ever been too. Not only were there dirty rugs, there were pubic hairs left in the bathtub, no alarm clock , the remote didn't work, the bathroom door didn't shut, and none of the locks were very secure which was quite scary in a noisy hall full of poor drunks. Along with this, the sheets were soiled and looked disgusting, anyone who slept in it probably had scabies previously and when i walked into the room, there was a rope of twine tied to one of the chairs. Either it was something disturbingly kinky or someone left it there from a previous kidnapping. Along with this conclusion, the only thing fresh in there was the paint on the bathroom door that covered dark stains. It looked as if someone had been killed there. It is NOT a place to stay and if you want to risk it, go ahead. But you might not make it through the night.....

There certainly isn't anything super about this SUPER 8. The hallways were dirty, the rooms were nasty. We were up all night because of loud people kicking doors, selling drugs, and who knows what else. It wasn't a good experience. Go to a different place. Sleep in your car before you book a room here.
