Let me be upfront & honest. This was my first ever Super 8 experience. I don't frequent 5 star properties but appreciate a good clean & comfortable place. Considering there's not much else in Thurmont, it was our choice to stay here. However, the furniture was old & appeared worn out & it wasn't exactly sonic & span. The girl who checked us in was disheveled looking & had a crying infant on her hip during the process. It appeared they were residents of the place. The lady attending the breakfast station the next morning was nice & professional. It just makes one question the standards overall (things you can't see) when standards of front desk personnel are so low. And when I think about those sorts of things, I feel a need to scratch. All said & done, I'd drive on to another property & skip this one.
