Hotel has had 4 names in last 5 years (Motown Inn, Magnuson, Sleep Inn, and, now Super 8). Beware, big sign on building still says Sleep Inn, while a plastic "Super 8" banner has been placed over the lit-up sign at street level--apparently no one that works there has figured out that, at night, the banner becomes translucent, and so says 'Sleep Inn'. Staff clueless--no concept of customer service. Room dirty--housekeeping appears not to have been trained in the day-to-day requirements of their jobs. Breakfast a joke--some reviews have mentioned eggs (what eggs?), and waffles (what waffles?), but don't believe them. To be fair, they say it's a continental breakfast, and I'm not really bothered; just didn't want anyone to be looking forward to eggs and waffles and find there are none. On the second morning, at about 9:10 (breakfast goes to 10am), there were 2 (small) yoghurts, some last bits of cereal at the bottom of the dispenser (hmmm--how often does that get cleaned?), no coffee, and exactly 3 pieces of white bread, for one's toasting pleasure.
Weird crowd--I'm guessing (and I could be wrong) that the hotel is used as a sort of short-term shelter or something--there seemed to be a lot of women with a lot of kids around all the time--in the lobby, in the pool, in the hallways--and they didn't look like vacationers, if you know what I mean. I'm pretty sure they weren't there on business, but it may have been that a few of the mom's were conducting business(!!).
We went, we slept, we left. It's cheap, but you really get what you pay for, in this case.
