The location is perfect for shopping etc. Unfortunately the room and hotel itself leaves much to be desired. We booked the room for new year's eve as we had a wedding to attend, The shower itself was very outdated and had block staining, if not, mold in the shower tiles. There were two towels only in the bathroom we asked for 2 more and Had to wait over an hour to get them. Which is a little convenient with your trying to get ready for a wedding. Do you remote control had no batteries in it? Those we did not get until we arrived back at our room after the wedding. There were no cups, not even one in that room. When we arrived when we asked for Some we were told that we were only allowed one cup, They were paper cups and why in the heck only one. We got our own cups by taking some off of a cart. Sad that we had to do that but the only way we could get more. The breakfast room is so tiny. We had to take our food ups to our room. I don't recommend this hotel for anything but a quick stop over. Honestly the only good thing about it was the location. Do not recommend will not be staying at any super eight ever again.

Horrific cold and snow and crazy late plane arrival, I had two choices attemped a 3 hour drive home at night on icy roads or crash somewhere for the night. I was driving by the Super 8 and chose the latter. The staff was amazing, helpful and understanding, the room rate was very reasonable and it was in very clean condition. Really help lower the stress level so I got a good nights sleep for the drive him. Two thumbers to the entire staff... will stay again for sure.
