“Entire hotel smells like stale cigarette smoke”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2009

There are plenty of no-smoking signs everywhere you look and placards advertising a "penalty" if you are caught violating the policy. Regardless, the entire hotel reeked of stale cigarette smoke. Just nasty.

They are a pet friendly motel however, they gave us an attitude because our pet is a cat! When I called to book the room, the man was nice and did not indicate any problem with having a cat. Upon arrival, he gave my husband an attitude regarding our cat, saying that we could not bring the pet through the lobby because people are allergic to cats. Never mind the fact that they have feather pillows on the beds. People who have allergies are known to have problems sleeping with feather pillows! He even stated to my husband that people have reactions to cats just by walking past the room with a cat inside it. My husband told him that is why you are supposed to have designated rooms for pets. The man then advised us to use the stairs. Our room was on the 3rd floor and I have a handicapped leg. Upon leaving, we were made to have a room inspection for cleanliness. Basically, we had to empty our own garbage and straighten up the room ourselves! They sent one of the maids to come and do the inspection and she acted like she was terrified to enter the room because there was a 10 pound domestic house cat inside. What the hell are the maid staff being paid to do? Stand around and supervise the guests while filing their nails??? We have stayed in several hotels and this was our first time at a Super 8. We will never visit Super 8 again! We feel we were treated like criminals! To have to undergo a room inspection before leaving after a one night stay, is degrading!!! To have to do the maid's job is even more degrading!!!

There was a female running the desk when I signed the pet policy. She told me in a "not so nice" tone of voice...that she would call the "Pound" to take my pet if we violated the pet rules. I've been traveling on a solid basis with my pet for 9 years now, and that lecture was unnecessary. At check out we had a couple of question about our bill (as we used reward points and didn't understand the charges)...Once again the same woman was extremely rude with my spouse and wanted to fight instead of simply explaining the bill to us. RUDE RUDE RUDE. Also used the guest computer for about 30 minutes which was around the corner from the front desk. She continued to be rude to people one after the other. One lady asked to exchange her 4 quarters for a dollar for the soda machine. She was told no, go up to the 3rd floor and try that machine instead. Such a simple request??? You need to take a closer look at the people who are representing you at the check in desk.
By the way, the room was clean except for the carpet which turned our socks and feet black.

Physical apperance was not great, but accomodation was quite adequate for this priced hotel. The room was nice sized and appeared and smelled clean. Everything worked properly which included a microwave and fridge. The bathroom was simple with a small vanity and cheaper, well used towels, but again clean. The desk service was efficient @ check in and out. The breakfast was not much, no fruit or pastries. The value for this priced hotel made it a nice 1 night travel stop.

Since we were traveling last minute, for a funeral, we didn't have too many options. We had spent and exorbatant amount on airline tickets, so didn't spend a lot on this hotel, so we weren't expecting much. It was clean, neat, comfortable. We haven't stayed in a Super 8 in a long time, but this is the nicest one we've seen. (Maybe Super 8's have improved or this is better than most.) A very good value for the money.

I called to book a room and many rooms as a matter of fact for my wedding party and other guests. The manager who I talked to was very rude and said that the prices would go up for booking all these rooms for a weekend in the summer.

He said that he was the manager and that he could charge any amount that they wanted to and he didn't give a [--] about my wedding party and guests and that they were always full and didn't care if we booked with them or not.

I asked him who his supervisor or the owner was and he said he didn't have to give me any [--] names. I am not happy with this type of service and very disgusted on how a manager of the hotel presented themselves.

Above average Super 8 location. Staff members were friendly and professional. Common areas, hallways, and rooms were clean and tidy. In fact, as I headed to checkout, I noticed housekeeping staff were actually scrubbing the carpet in each room entryway. When I complimented the front desk about the hotel staff efforts, she stated they routinely clean those areas at least once a month in addition to the day to day cleaning they do. Only drawbacks to this location: walls are thin and sounds from hall and other rooms are not buffered well; sheets and towels are on the thin side. Otherwise, this was a comfortable and clean location for an overnight stay. Close to several grocery/convenience stores. Would stay here again when visiting the area.
