"Check in time is anytime after 3 pm, I'm Ok with that, however, when we got there at 3:15-3:20 pm, needing to get ready for a wedding at 4 pm, the room was still not cleaned up from the previous night's guests. A little disappointing, but overall, I would go back. The staff were good, and they are pet friendly!!"

"Very comfortable room and pet friendly..."
"The front desk staff could be friendlier. More pressure in the shower would be nice and the fan in the bathroom automatically comes on with the light. This is very loud and annoying when it doesn't need to be on ie: just brushing teeth. Otherwise, this Super 8 was great."
