The room was suppose to be non smoking, but it smelled. The ceiling was yellow. The Fire alarm was missing (I'm sure there are laws about that). The window was cracked and fixed with box tape. The refrigerator condenser was loud. I connected to the WiFi but was not prompted to log on, or granted internet access. I gave up...

Every thing was good. But don't expect the breakfast to be a set meal. It is things to take and go which was good for us. Everything was great for the price.

This hotel was cheap, $50-something, but even for that price it is a dump. The room was very small and shabby. The bed was OK; pillows were lumpy; bedding was very thin; no place to sit besides on bed; some sticky substance on corner of TV stand; globs of soap in bottom of tub by the drain; the worst thing...

We booked this room last minute as it was the only hotel left that weekend with vacancies. Needless to say, now we know why. Front desk clerk was dressed very sloppy and really showed no emotion. Was not very helpful in where to park so we didn't have to carry our luggage too far. The room was decent sized. The...

My dog was in the small animal hospital, so i needed to be here a couple days. The price looked good at this motel so i checked it out. It is great the rooms are clean, it has a fridge, microwave, and hairdryer. For the cost and nice room this place is five star.

I wasn't going to make it to Lincoln, NE before the wee morning hours, so I needed to bed down for the night. Stopping at a rest area on I-35 southbound, I looked (on my iPhone) for an inexpensive place to stay, and found this Super 8. I got there and got to bed; the pillows were even a bit...

It was storming out and sidewalk and parking lot very slippery. Told the check,in clerk and the night clerk that it would be a good idea to put some salt down. The next morning when we left still not done and I slipped on ice. (Wasn't hurt) very disappointed that the safety of quest wasn't considered.

Was in town for business the place appeared to be nice and clean. The biggest issues were the beds were very hard and not comfortable, the smoke detector was missing from the room, and the internet had a very weak signal. Then there was the breakfast, which left a lot to be desired.
