"We have stayed at a lot of Super 8's and this one was ok , but for the complimentary breakfast there was only bread with butter and jam peanut butte, and juice. There was no fruit or cream or muffins out. There was a bag in the fridge that had a couple of oranges and an apple but you didn,t know if it was for the patrons or not. There really seemed to be no thought to the fixings. It looked very cheap. And you could hear alot of complaints milling around at the two tables for 40 roomw."

"It seemed to me that visitors weren't welcome in this hotel because it meant extra work fo the staff. Hopefully I won't have to use this place again. Your service through the internet was great, but unfortunately the hotel was not- according to my personal standards."
