I booked this Super 8 on the strength of the reviews here at Tripadvisor, and it was fine for an overnight stay on the way to somewhere else. The room was large, clean and comfortable. They're pet-friendly, which was important to me, and they only charge a $10.60 flat rate. I had to sign an agreement that the pet would stay in a carrier all the time they're in the room -- what???? Maybe it's a CYA thing, but I can't imagine confining my poor kitty to the carrier she'd been in the entire day.
I got to breakfast, served 6-9 am in the lobby, at 6 am and it was okay -- cereal, small cheese danish, bagels and cream cheese. High-carb stuff, which I try to avoid, but hey -- you can't have everything. I could have wished for a hot beverage that was more like coffee and less like warm brown water, though. Fortunately, there was a Perkins not far up the road where I got a good hot breakfast (Perkins is a nice little chain, BTW, kinda like Friendly's or Marie Callender's).
I guess my only (minor) complaint is that there were very few rooms occupied in the hotel, and they put us right next to each other, which made for an unnecessarily noisy experience. Perhaps this was to make housekeeping more efficient, but they could have separated us by a few rooms instead of packing us in right next to each other! My neighbors were noisy at night when I wanted to sleep, and I was noisy early in the morning getting my stuff out to get on the road early. All in all, though, a satisfactory experience for $54.99 plus the pet fee.
