Very nice economy hotel

Posted Jul 28, 2014
Pros: Everything in the room, was clean and well arranged, the staff was very helpful.
Cons: Outside on the stairs, there was trim all the way up and down that one had to step over going up and down. I noticed it did not sit flat on the steps.
Location: Close to restaurants and downtown...without being TOO close.
The staff was great! They got me checked in and out, handled a couple of hiccups during my stay and everything went smoothly! I definately want to especially commend Crystal and the young lady that checked me in. They were anxious to be helpful and took care to respond to my questions. They did great! And folks staying at the hotel, fellow travelers, were a joy to be around. It was a very nice experience!! OH, while the pictures were not what one would really expect in a hotel, they gave it a "boutique" feel and were just fine. Mine had a boat speeding along on one and the other was a bridge, both black and white. The room was well maintained and I loved that there was everything there: iron and board, microwave/fridge, coffee maker (their coffee in the room was VERY nice). Great job!!

Not for the faint of heart.

Posted Jun 29, 2014
Got in late. They had our key ready and check in was easy. The night clerk was nice. In bad part of town from the looks of the chain-link fences with barbed-wire on top at the nearby car dealerships and the glass in front of the check-in desk. Room smelled funky and towels were dirty, but it was updated and had a good fridge and microwave. Was approached by a drunk man that claimed to be homeless when I was unloading the van at midnight. When I went to get fresh towels, they didn't even say sorry. The people there during the day were more interested in chatting and texting. Breakfast was a waffle machine and cold cereal. Tried to make hot chocolate but coffee grounds came out with the hot water. Won't be staying at a Super 8 again.

Dear Valued Guest, We appreciate you taking the time to review your stay. Although we have seen many changes to the area over the years, the area continues to redevelop in a positive way. We are located on Hwy 369 and Dorsey St. I do not recall any dealership on this highway with your descriptions. I understand that you encountered an opportunity with cleanliness of your guest room. I sincerely apologize for this. I'm so sorry that we were unable to meet expectations and based upon your review I am actively participating with our staff to ensure this does not happen again. I hope that if your travels brings you back to the area that you will consider staying with us again. Thank you again, I appreciate your feedback.

Good stay for price, Clean but beds are hard

Posted Jun 9, 2014 on Hotels.com
Service was great and room was very clean, however, the beds and pillows were really hard and not very comfortable. But well worth the money we paid for the room.

Terrible surroundings

Posted May 19, 2014 on Hotels.com
Surrounding area was so bad and people loitering in the parking lot that were less than reputable looking. Looking in everyone's cars...my wife left and never checked in. She was by herself and the neighborhood was terrible! Don't stay their without a gun.

Dear Valued Guest,' We are sorry that your wife was not able to stay with us. If she would had came in and experience our customer service, I know for sure she would had a different perspective about the surroundings. We review our security cameras and we could not find any loitering or looking into cars. None of the guests that stayed that weekend reported any loitering. That particular weekend we were pretty busy with different events in town, so probably she saw a lot guests in the parking lot area. We have a 24 hour staff always to answer any concerns. We absolutely do not promote violence. You do not need to come to stay here with a gun.

Friendly staff

Posted May 6, 2014 on Hotels.com
The staff was one of the friendliest I have dealt with. The stay was fine. There was a small leak under the sink and the toilet flush handle broke. Both was fixed promptly. I would stay there again.
