The property is just getting old. Things are worn, toilets run on, furniture is missing from rooms, it is just getting old. With new and more modern locations going in nearby, I will search for other locations the next time I follow this route.

I came in on Thursday night and left Saturday morning. We had a great time and were greeted by a friendly woman at the counter. The room was clean and comfortable. I will definitely consider this location again if I'm ever in the area.

I do not like to give poor reviews; but maybe it will help improve Super 8. It was hot out and we wanted to get a nice cold soda - NO vending machine. Could not believe it! We did call and tell them we were running very late and the owner was very gracious to us and waited up. Very...
