We did a good bit of research on the very limited pool of hotels in Sealy, and the Super 8 ran second to the Holiday Inn Express. At one half the price of the Holiday Inn Express, the Super 8 provided much better value. For its age (I've driven by this hotel for many years), the motel was in good condition and kept very clean. The air conditioner worked great and there was a nice selection on cable. The TVs were still the old tube type.....no flat screens in the rooms. The rooms were fairly big. The refrigerator was a refreshingly usable size, bigger than the small compacts you find in most hotel rooms. The room was clean.
There were a couple of coin operated washing machines and dryers on the premises and a Pizza Hut and a Mexican restaurant next to the hotel. The Super Start free breakfast was very basic. A couple of bins dispensing Raisin Bran or Frosted Flakes, packaged Oatmeal, packaged cinnamon buns, toast, Eggo type waffles, and coffee, milk and juice.....although the orange juice was not juice, but Sunny D. It was enough to hold us over until lunch. The service area had nice tables and there was a little sitting area in the lobby with a large flat screen TV showing the news.
Our biggest disappointment came in the inviting area when a roach scurried down the trashcan as we threw away our paper plates. I told the front desk man who seemed to take our report very seriously and apologized. It surprised us because the rest of the motel was very clean. That is the biggest reason we are rating the motel with 4 stars instead of 5. The water pressure was a little below average, but the shower water was plenty hot. It looked like someone had dropped the iron on the carpet because we had a pretty noticeable scorched area near the foot of one of the beds. These were minor issues.
The breakfast is served from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. The checkout time is 11 a.m. We noticed a little bit of mold in some of the corners, but very minor and what you would expect in an older motel. The Internet was free and worked very well. The lobby closes around 10:00 p.m. and, if you arrive late, you will need to check in at a side window. The beds were comfortable and the microwave came in handy. The hotel was much quieter than some reviews indicated. We slept well.
The motel is absolutely nothing fancy, but will meet the needs of almost any budget traveler. We will gladly stay here again if we have another horse show i n the area.
