We booked this room thru TripAdvisor based on the reviews we had seen. Unfortunately the lower rated reviews were more accurate than the higher ones. It is a nonsmoking hotel, but as soon as we opened the door to our room all we could smell was smoke. We went back to the front desk and requested another room. The new...

My family stayed at this Super 8 for 3 nights recently while attending the Madison County Covered Bridge Festival.

If you need a room at a price in this area, this is an ok place. It was clean. Staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was very sparse and I don't require much. Location is great. Lots of good options handy. Wouldn't be my first pick in this area but served my purpose.

One of the best rests I have had in a long time. Clean quiet rooms. Breakfast did not look appealing, so I skipped it. Not fair to judge that way, wish I would have had breakfast there because the alternative was a lot no story. Helpful friendly staff, easy to make reservation on the phone. Good stay, would stay again.
