I must start off by saying the last time I stayed in a Super 8 was in High school for nefarious reasons. Super 8 was always in the Motel6 charge by the hour category IMO. I'm happy to say that I no longer feel that way about Super 8's because of this property.
I decide to stay here after having a horror experience at the Day's Inn & reading the improving reviews of this S8. I can't say how much nicer this place is. To start the aura is one of lightness, maybe something to do with being on the hill and getting a lot of sunlight or maybe the great staff. Usually I feel dark & musty in PA, always moldy but this was a change.
When I arrived I saw a little boy who just ran into a wall board and cut his head. The front desk staff was all over it, first aid kits, gloves, ice, toys, nice to see and didn't mind waiting.
After checking in they gave me a room that would have normally been great but this weekend was the NW CUP, a huge mountain bike competition. Being a smart manager he set up a cleaning station in the parking lot for the multitudes of mountain bikers to clean their gear since they won't leave $4k bikes in the parking lot. Hoses, rags, buckets, brushes and cones to make it safe. If I was a mountain biker I would stay here for sure no other property was so cool about hosting them I'm told. Not one drop of mud in the halls, no crazy parties. The only issue was the cleaning station was outside my room and my baby was being disturbed by the little noise they caused. I told the front desk and they offered to move me to a better room and I was going to; but the way my schedule worked out & their bike race, I never did. Still they would've done it no problem, if I wasn't so lazy.
The rooms were very clean with white bedding! Everything worked and again I was impressed with the level of quality in this Super 8. Much newer than the more expensive Days Inn.
The parking lot not only had cameras and big lights but I watched 2 employees tour the property in bucket pouring rain. I felt my car & my family were safe here. The housekeeping staff was super nice to my 16month old and did a great job. I kept my DnD sign up most the day, leave for an hour at 1pm not expecting it but the room was serviced. I also left $800 cash some jewelry & computer stuff and when I returned the money was never touched or even moved. (Thanks!)
The morning breakfast was served in a large no frills sit down cafe with a great selection of food for me & my baby. Another shocker was that the coffee both in room & breakfast was great for a hotel. I'm a coffee snob and this stuff was above decent!
I was also impressed with the access for handicapped rooms. They had them on the end of the hall for easy in & out to the disabled spots with no stairs. Big rooms with great rails too (I have an uncle in a wheelchair so I always take note.)
The last thing and something that I find very important. THEY HAVE A HUGE FRACKING INTERNET PIPE! I have stayed in something close to a thousand hotels and I have never seen wifi this good. I was getting 9-12 down and 1.3 up. Crazy hotel speeds. I used Skype, I did a live stream podcast, I streamed full movies in HD, uploaded hundreds of RAW pics to the cloud.
The only bad thing I can report is the toilet paper. I know the cost to upgrade to a 2-ply non sandpaper variety is bump but I would happily pay a buck more a night for it. Have it as a $2 day add-on at check-in, hand it to me with my key. You would change the industry!
I called this the 3rd best place in PA. As far as luxury goes, Red Lion, Olympic Lodge then the Super 8. Funny I know. Sad when I see people spending more to stay at the Days Inn when its half the property.
