good for he moneyPosted Sep 11, 2014
Cons: They need no smoking in the hotel
Location: Gear we were just 15 mins from Des Moines and very low crime area. Three places to dine were within walking distance. Pool was clear and staff nice.
The hotel was nice however if you don't smoke don' take their smoking rooms. The dinning area is small and has only 12 tables to eat. If you get your food and go pool side i's fine.

GrossPosted Aug 20, 2014
Gross. I know it's a cheap hotel, but it's not that cheap. Check in took about 20 minutes (not exaggerating). The woman had no idea what she was doing and when I had to sign my name she rudely told me to sign it neater so she could read it (uhh that's my signature, if I signed it "neater" it would look different than anything else I've ever signed, and my printed name was at the top of the page??). The room was gross, cigarette burns on the comforter and sheets. Found a hair on the pillow when I got there, someone spilled something in a drawer that wasn't cleaned. The other comforter had a huge rip in it as well. Overall just a gross place to stay. If the rooms for $35 a night, I would still say its a good deal. But for $75 I would rather sleep in my car or spend $20 more for a decent room and employees that have used a computer before.

Right off I-80!Posted Aug 11, 2014
Pros: Pretty good breakfast, had biscuits and gravy and waffles among the hot food, along with cereal and juices.
Cons: We knew we had a smoking room (much to our dismay, but all that was left) but didn't expect cigarette burns in the bedspread!!
Location: Don't know, but don't think a lot nearby. State fair's going on in Des Moines right now.
It was so close to the Interstate, we missed it first time and it sits back behind other businesses, so a little hard to see. Nice enough for overnight stay and the staff was super nice!! and they are somewhat at a disadvantage since they're going thru transition from Super 8 to America's Best Western Inn & Suites, and seem to have very little information from the old Super 8 company.

Did not accommodate my room request through Expedia. Other than having to be carried upstairs, stay was okay.

Nice Place to StayPosted Apr 27, 2014
Location: Close to John Wayne's birthplace, and the 7 covered bridges featured in the book and film THE BRIDGES OF MADISON COUNTY.
The Super 8 in Stuart is a comfortable place to stay. The staff was friendly and helpful. If you are planning on doing any sight seeing in central Iowa, near the John Wayne birthplace and the covered bridges of Madison County, and would are looking for a nice, affordable place to stay, we definitely recommend the Super 8.

Hotel smellsPosted Apr 7, 2014
This was our 2nd time staying in this hotel and each time the lobby and the rooms which were non smoking smelled of smoke.

Stuart, IA. Super 8Posted Dec 5, 2013
Pros: The location and that it's close to the highway.
Location: I was visiting with friends and family for the holiday.
My overall experience at Super 8 was pleasant. I had minimal problems with being checked in and my room was nice and smoke-free. There were only a few people who stayed overnight at the hotel, which was great because that cuts down on noise(s) in the hallways, or other rooms.
