Caught them during NASCAR weekend, and severe area flooding. This left the hotel over-run and understaffed. The small crew provided good turnover and clean rooms. The hotel is close to roads, but noise was not a problem. Room was clean. Heat and air fine. Good internet connection. TV. Comfortable bed. Parked vehicle at my door.
Checked into room #217 at midnight after a 1,000 mile car ride. Checked out an hour later to sleep in my car. That's how bad the room was. Bodily fluid stains on bed sheets, pillow cases and towels. Sticky floors and furniture. Hairs in bathroom. Cigarette burns everywhere plus intense smell of smoke (this was a "non-smoking" room). Wyndham should be ashamed of themselves to let a place like that be associated with their name. Apparently, there is zero oversight and the owner of the place (Nick Patel, as I was told) couldn't care less about the place, which makes him a despicable SOB. At this point, I am so disgusted and traumatized, that I will never set foot in a Super8 again.
DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!!! NASTY NASTY drug dealers, blood on bedspread, tire marks on sheets, knats flying around in room. Cannot believe a maid would put sheets on a bed in that condition! I was checking in by myself they put me on the top floor at the very end in a dark corner. Had to walk by two men making a drug deal. Very scary!!
My husband drives a semi-truck and we were looking for a place to stay with truck parking. There were billboards stating this Super 8 had truck parking. We got off the indicated exit and drove to the Super 8. The hill it is on was steep but it still indicated truck parking at the bottom of the hill. When we got to the top the hotel had a narrow entrance. We drove to the other side thinking the parking must be on that side. There was a gravel lot that one semi MAY have fit in but there was a pick up truck parked there. We decided there was no way to stay here and circled back around. The only exit we could go out was the same entrance we tried to come in. This was a hairpin turn that would be difficult for any driver. My husband has over 30 years experience with this. The concrete was scraped and crumbling where other trucks evidently had trouble getting in. Also an orange cone set up on top of the crumbling concrete. The cab of the truck felt like we were going to flip right over. My husband had to slide his tandems and get as close to the building as he could to make the turn to assure he would not flip over. Ridiculous that they would be advertising truck parking everywhere with this lot. If an inexperienced trucker gets up there and ends up flipping I could see a huge lawsuit for the hotel!…
Where to begin... First some good things: This was easy to get to (a few blocks off I-81) and only $58 total after tax and AAA discount. The floor, sink, toilet, and shower seemed to be clean. Check in was easy with reservation through Wyndham and front desk person was polite. The site itself is kind of trashy and the entry drive is torn up and has a large wash-out gravel spill running down it. In an area where any view is a good view, our view was of an embankment covered in kudzu (without leaves) with a real estate sign poking above the ridge. Exterior of building is OK; what you'd expect for price. Now for the room (#216 with 2 full sized). Upon entering the room , the first thing to slap me was the very stale and dank odor like it hasn't been opened in a week. It's a non-smoking room, but has the faint whiff of an old smoke mixed into the staleness. There are ugly poly bedspreads with multiple cigarette burns (photo) in each. The door sills have mildew marks and there is blue painter's tape all along the door jamb, half peeled off (photo). There are two wall lamps between the beds. Both are dirty and cracked (photo). The AC unit works, but is dirty and worn and the cover is broken (photo). The curtains are multi-layered and the plastic layer (exterior side)is missing in big chunks. There's more (different) hanging tape in the corner (photo). The door bumper is smashed into the wall and is loose (photo). There is a think waxy-looking mystery substance splashed on each of the beds' skirts (photo), and a white blob of some other substance on the hangers (photo). The lamp by the TV has some stuff on it (photo). The floor lamp in the corner has a broken knob and cannot be turned (photo). Is it on or off? Hard to tell, because the outlet that it is plugged into does not work anyway. The TV remote is visibly broken (photo). TV has to be powered on/off with button on side of TV. Same for the volume control. At least the channel up/down worked. The bath counter was new granite and was nice. The tub and curtain rod was too. The rest was gross. The light/fan was very rusty and hard not to notice due to CFL twist (and not cone shaped / flood style bulb) and frame was ill-fitted (photo). From the shower I noticed there was a fan inside the fixture that was not working. A closer look revealed that one of the motor wires had been disconnected and is loose inside. The connections had been twisted wire with electrical tape “holding” it together (no wire nuts); no surprise that it came undone (photo). The toilet paper holder was broken and missing the spindle part (photo). The cheap hollow door to the bathroom was dirty and chipped, and the ¼” paneling was peeling off front and back (photo). The doorknob was loose (photo) and the towel hook on the back was broken/missing (photo). These are the major, hard-not-to-notice things. I tried not to look closer at most things. It would be hard for anyone to walk into this room for a few minutes and not notice many of the things I mentioned. I write this long review is the hopes of saving someone from the same experience. If there is another hotel nearby at a similar price point, go there instead; it can't be worse than this place. There were a few other options at this and nearby exits. Whomever is responsible for this room and hotel seems to have little regard for their property. Wyndham should be embarrassed and ashamed to have their name associated with this trash heap. Bringing this sort of stuff to the attention of the front desk isn't worth the trouble; either they already know about it and don't care, or they don't know about it but definitely should and therefore are equally deficient. This was end of March 2020 during COVID, so the place was not even close to full which means that I didn't just get the last room available; the one they give to local “escorts” who only need it for an hour. I assume I got what likely is a regular, typical room for the average traveler. This is an honest review with photos that support most of it. Stay somewhere else if you can.…
