Hard to find Motel. Stuck in the back of Motel 6!

Posted Dec 22, 2013
Pros: The price was good. The staff was morn then friendly and helpful.
Cons: The room!
Location: That was ok
The staff was great and was what expected. The room was old and mustie. Roches and a tv that wasn't up to snuff. Drain the the bath tub was allmost stoped up.. Alot of room for improvement.

Rude staff, Claimed reservation was not in system.

Posted Dec 3, 2013
The hotel front desk was VERY rude. Even with my itinerary in hand with a confirmation number she claimed that I did not have a reservation. When my colleague called to sort out the issue the first time she hung up on her and the second time was extremely rude. I do not know if this boils down to an Expedia error or hotel error. Either way, she handled the situation poorly.

Convenient to Food & Interstate

Posted Oct 7, 2013
Pros: The staff was excellent ~ very friendly and helpful
Cons: Update the bathrooms and get new beds and roll away cots (springs poke you in the back and the frame was broken)
Location: It was 10 minutes from the VA State Fair, Kings Dominion and had plenty of food and other amenities!
The beds in the room were not that comfortable (you felt like you were going downhill). And the bathroom was a little dirty and old looking.

Should've splurged

Posted Aug 19, 2013
Pros: Cheap
Cons: The rooms definitely need to be updated
Location: The hotel was close to Richmond as well as King's Dominion
I had a feeling going into this that the hotel was not going to be very nice, and I was definitely right. I recently went down to the Richmond area to do some touristy stuff and knew that I wasn't going to spend much time at my hotel, so I decided to just go the cheaper route. The hotel reminded me of my grandmother's old, musty spare room. The room has never been updated and you could feel some sort of film on the carpets (socks at all times are a must). Our sheets had cigarette holes in them and there was a mysterious yellow stain on the comforter. The staff was friendly when we arrived, but I had to call a few days before to change my reservation and the staff member that picked up on that day was extremely rude. We arrived at about 11:30 on a Friday night and there were people hanging out in the parking lot, listening to really loud music for about an hour or two. Nothing was done to get them to leave or turn it down, granted I didn't call the front desk. I got what I paid for which was a cheap room......

Worked for us

I wanted an clean, inexpensive room near Kings Dominion. Something free to eat in the morning and included wi-fi were the other features my family was looking for. This Super 8 met our needs.

Family trip to King's Dominion

Posted Jul 28, 2013
Pros: The price of the room was reasonable but taking everything else into consideration I would of rather payed a little more.
Cons: The hospitality of the staff, the cleanliness of the rooms, the cleanliness of the pool
We have had wonderful experiences with Super 8's in the past so we booked a reservation online with the Super 8 in Doswell, VA for our family trip to King's Dominion. Upon arrival there we were very displeased. The pictures taken and shown online really do not look anything like the condition of the hotel in its current state. My children wanted to go swim in the pool our first night there since we always drive down and stay the night before so we are well rested and the pool water was green. A guy was there to try and clean the pool when we went down there and we overheard a conversation between him and the owner saying that the filtration system for the pool was too small and that a larger one needed to be purchased. The next day the water looked cleaner so I allowed the children to go swimming but instead we found out that a bunch of chemicals were just dumped in it instead. The rooms were not very clean and ours had a coffee maker but no coffee pot. The beds were very uncomfortable and the hotel staff was not very pleasant. I would never stay at this hotel again nor would I recommend anyone too.

Pros: Clean
Cons: Pool color. Maybe updated appliances and furniture.
Location: Location was close to where I needed to be 2 hrs from va beach and 15 minutes from kings dominion.
Staff was friendly only thing I was concerned about was the green water in the pool..I would stay here again its decent for the cost remember you get what you pay for.

Never Again

Posted Jul 11, 2013
Pros: Not one thing.
Cons: New management.
Location: Kings Dominion. Lots of fast food options around hotel.
Worst experience of my life. Upon entering to register, girl at desk had no idea I had already paid in full prior to arrival. Arrived at two rooms I had reserved for my family and they both smelled musty. The bathroom in the room I stayed in had black in the bottom and curly hairs on the walls of the shower. The toilets in both rooms barely flushed and made horrible noises upon flushing. When left next day to go to theme park, came back to rooms that were not cleaned. Went to front desk for towels and she was surprised room service did not clean our rooms. Received call little later that they were told neither room was to be cleaned. We left that afternoon and lost payment for second night as couldn't stand thought of staying in smelly/dirty hotel room again. Sign at front desk said playground not available for use. Both the playground and pool were deadbolted and pool water was green. Never again will my family stay at a Super 8 hotel due to this experience. We never even received an apology for our rooms not getting room service.
