The rate that Booking.com gave us was different from the rate they tried to charge us at the hotel. The girl working in the office was nice but manager wouldn't give us the AARP discount because they said we already received a low rate. The bathroom water wouldn't quit running and they didn't clean the room just gave us extra...

This property needs one thing... to be tore down and replaced. It was one of the worst rooms I've ever stayed in. Old Carpet, Old AC unit, bad shower rod & curtain, thin towels, missing drywall...the list goes on. While the front desk clerk was extremely nice, she works in a rat hole...

Stayed at this hotel for 1 week. For the price, it would be ok. BUT, the 1 non American that works breakfast is rude, breakfast was almost empty the entire week and never replenished, and "it's not my job" is the answer he gives you and goes right back to his cellular phone. Then the young lady with dreads is...

My Husband and I went to Jacksonville for a vacation, I made the reservation, obviously I entered my information in order to get available room for this Hotel Super 8.

The room and the bed were okay. We had problems with the bathroom door and toilet seat cover. The door would not close because the hinges were loose from the frame. The toilet seat cover was broken off. We did discover some roaches in the bathroom. The inexpensive price matched the quality of the room. No more Super 8 hotels...

If you like roaches, mildew & graffiti- book here. The only redeeming quality of this place is the nice staff. The rooms are old, smelly & mildewed. The neighborhood is rough (bars on windows, graffiti). It was the nastiest motel I have ever stayed in.

This site is a prime example of the "Old Super 8 Chain". I frequently stay at Super 8s all over the country and am almost always very pleased with the quality and price. However, the older, not-yet-updated sites leave a lot to desire. This not-so-downtown "Downtown" location does not live up to the standards I have come to appreciate at...
