We checked in to find the a/c not working,waited 30 minutes to get into another room to find the fan knob broken in the full cold position. The rooms were not very clean, but the staff was friendly. They do allow pets, which was a plus.

I wasn't expecting to pay $100 at a Super 8, but it was in the area and was well-reviewed so I took a chance. Those positive reviews are deserved. Check-in was efficient. The clerk wasn't talkative but he was efficient. The room was clean, relatively modern, and the bed was very clean and comfortable. Nice-size LCD television, lots of channels....

This was a good stop over hotel. The beds are pretty soft. The pillows are amazing. Our room, #142, had an issue with the door coming open if the deadbolt wasn't locked. When we 1st got to the room the door was cracked. I thought it was just the housekeeping didn't close it all the way but we went to...

We arrived just before 9 and were 4th in line to check in - the clerk was having problems with guest #1. Once that was resolved, things moved very quickly. Otherwise, front desk staff was very pleasant and efficient. The bed was fabulous; and the TV was an excellent variety. The breakfast is above average for a Super 8.

This hotel was average. The room and bathroom were clean. The door to the room and the walls were thin, so we could easily hear someone walking with their bags or talking from the hallway. Front desk staff were courteous, but the night agent didn't give us any directions around the building and we walked in a circle before finding...

This is an amazing value for the price. The room was clean and modern and the bed was surprisingly comfortable - not at all what you might expect from a bargain hotel. I always request a corner room because with windows that open on 2 walls I can get a nice fresh breeze flowing. The location is extremely convenient -...

My stay at Super 8 was great because the room was clean and everything and everyone was very nice. My reservation was handled very well. Check in was quick and easy. Woke up in the morning and had a nice breakfast.

Stayed here for 1 night. Front desk staff was very friendly and lobby was nice. No elevators in building, but only 2 stories. Stayed in room on 2nd floor, 2 queen bed room. Room smelled musty- like mildew and stale smoke. Opened window when I got in there to air out room, the screen was broken on the window. Mold...
