Not Worth the Cheap Price!Posted Mar 11, 2015
Pros: It was close to my conference site.
Cons: Super 8 needs to drop this property from their listings and save the integrity of their name. It is a flop-house.
Location: The location on Mac Arthur Drive is good- bulldoze it an build something decent.
I stayed at this motel 5 years ago but things have really deteriorated. The room smelled musty, the wooden chair was broken, most of the drawers were broken and the receptacles were so worn out they could not hold a plug! I have never seen this. The carpet is old and worn, the iron was missing and the microwave was dirty. The shower had a weak stream of hot water, barely enough for a shower. At 2:00 AM there was a loud bang of doors in the hallway and violent shouting between several people for about 10 minutes. I was afraid of gun fire. This is a "bottom feeder" hotel- if you are destitute and need shelter for the night, ok but watch your back! I believe they have changed owners and they certainly don't have the home made breakfast the old owners offered. I would also check with the Alexandria Police about incident reports at this location.

It got the job donePosted Dec 2, 2014 on Hotels
I came down for the night to be w the family for Thanksgiving. The staff was very friendly and helpful. It was very dog friendly. Which was why I needed the room in the first place. It wasn't the nicest by far but it served it's purpose and the location was great. I wI'll more 5 Han likely stay there again.

Older, but it gets the job done.Posted Nov 24, 2014 on Hotels
It's not the nicest or newest hotel. But the staff was really sweet and the price was very low. It's right next to plenty of places to grab food and the wifi worked fine. It's a budget motel, but they try hard.

Worst Super 8 everPosted Oct 31, 2014
Pros: It was very close to where I needed to go for the stay.
Cons: Everything, cosmetic touch up in the rooms, get rid of the moldy smell, have housekeeper check all amenities in the room.
Location: lol Can't help you there I even asked the front desk clerk and I got snicker and a comment "nothing".
I would not stay at this hotel again, I'd rather sleep in my car. There is a moldy smell through out the hotel and much worse in your room. In my room the tv would not give a full picture, phone and hair dryer did not work and the beds were made in poor condition. This room needed cosmetic touch ups through out the room all in all the room was in poor condition. Asked the front desk for suggestions where to eat, do not expect a polite answer. Also the location of how to get to this place is tricky with the traffic. Lately all the Super 8 hotels I have stayed at were independently owned, and they are all in poor condition. From here on out I will not stay at super 8 the owners just don't keep up the standards for a quality super 8.

The hotel triedPosted Oct 13, 2014
Pros: The staff was very polite
Cons: update rooms and secure them
The facility is run down and the staff tries very hard to meet needs but the tub, sinks, and floors really felt unsanitary even if they were just stained. The sliding door was not secure because it had two makeshift hook locks holding it close to the door jam, but it did not lock closed and felt unsafe.
