This was definitely the worst hotel experience I've ever had.
My husband and I were traveling north on 95, on our way home from vacation. This Super 8 had the only jacuzzi suite in town, so we agreed to pay the extra cash (don't remember now how much it was, now, but I know it was way overpriced) for the extra "luxury." As soon as we got in the room, I knew it was a mistake.
It smelled old and dirty. The lighting was dim, so the room felt dank and unwelcoming. The jacuzzi was dirty, with hair on the walls and drain, and there were mirrors covering the ceiling and walls around the tub. Worse yet, the mirrors were loose, in poor condition, and filthy-looking. The toilet had hair and scum around the outside of the bowl. Overall, it was nasty, like it hadn't been cleaned in a long time.
Worst of everything, though, was what happened when we turned out the lights. A dim glow appeared, all over the walls and ceiling. It was flat-out creepy. There appeared to be patterns of glowing spots. We were both honestly terrified. I guess it might sound silly now, but having no idea what that glowing stuff was or why it was there, and with the room so dirty and in such a tiny backwoods town, it felt like we were about to become the stars of our own personal horror film.
We went to the front desk, which was locked and barred for the night, where we had to speak to the night attendant through a cage. HER response was, "Oh my god! That sounds like something out of a horror film!" She had no idea why the walls and ceiling of our room would be glowing, but pleasantly offered to move us to a different room. She said she didn't have the authority to offer us a refund or discount, but that we could talk to the manager in the morning and she was sure he would accommodate us.
The second room smelled even worse, but at least the walls didn't glow. In the morning, the manager told us he had no idea why the night attendant had moved us to a different room. He said that the glowing walls were a "romantic" addition to the room, and that "all the hotels are doing it" these days. When I asked him why his night worker hadn't known about the glowing walls, or why there was nothing posted WARNING us about them, he said she'd only worked there for two months and couldn't possibly know everything about the hotel, and that they don't have to warn us about things like that. Like we should have known why the walls were glowing, since "all" the hotels are like that now. He was extremely rude to us, telling us that he certainly would not give us a refund or discount because we actually cost him MORE money by switching rooms! Now his housekeepers had to clean two rooms for us, instead of just the creepy glowy room.
So, not only is this Super 8 filthy-dirty, and disturbingly creepy, but the service is also appallingly bad. (After reading those other reviews about the bed bugs--which totally doesn't surprise me--I am even more upset that we stayed there.) Never, never stay here--pick any other hotel in town, or just drive right on to the next exit! Avoid the St. George Super 8 at all costs. I will never stay at another Super 8 again, I promise you that.
