I booked this hotel online through Super 8's website (not through Expedia or anything else). I received a confirmation number for a rate of 53.99. Roughly $60 with taxes. I pondered staying at other hotels in the area but they had a higher price. I just wanted a clean room. I was staying overnight for work but at my own expense.
When I arrived, there were several people smoking at the entrance. Ok, I can get over that part. Well the sign at the desk said, "helping others right now". Well I went back to get my stuff from the car so I was ready to go to my room. The girl outside was the front desk girl. So I get my room. I walk in and was pretty impressed. Big bathtub, nice living room area, micro/fridge. The room was clean I will give them that much.
I locked myself in for the night and hoped I had a car in one piece in the morning.
As I checked out, the same girl was working the desk. I checked my receipt. I was charged $82.86. I show the girl my confirmation with the price. She said there was nothing she could do to adjust the price. So --here I am stuck paying $82 a night for a shady hotel in a rougher area when I could have paid $80 a night for a Comfort Suites in a better area of town. Lesson learned.
I happen to be a travel planner for my business. We happen to have several drivers stay with the Super 8 brand in other cities. We have a warehouse less than a mile from this location. You can mark my word -- NONE of my employees will be staying with this hotel. Period. If you post a price, honor that price. I have requested a refund just for the extra amount charged. I'm sure that won't happen.
Let's not forget -the breakfast - Joke!
The lobby- Tore up
Hallways and Walls-- Thin and loud.
