“Mildew much?”
Reviewed 7 August 2006

Stayed at the Super8 Atlantic recently while in the area for a work event. My room and those my coworkers stayed in all smelled very mildewy, and, when I made the very bad mistake of taking off my shoes, I discovered that the carpet was damp. I don't know why the other reviewers would give this 5 "bullets" or "stars" or whatever, but this accommodation was barely tolerable at best. After trying the free breakfast the first morning, we chose to pay and go to the supermarket down the street the next morning. The Super8's coffee was essentially coffee-flavored water and the food was an assortment of sugary treats and cereals... nothing remotely resembling anything healthy or fresh. The one really good thing this place had going for it was the front desk clerk, who really made an effort on my behalf when I arrived at 10pm to check in and found no record of my reservation and the place totally sold out (after some digging she unearthed a held reservation for which no one had checked in and gave me that room).

On our cross country trek with our 2 golden retirever, we stayed at the Super 8 in Atlantic. There are not many choices in that neck of the woods. It was an older style Super 8 but clean and quiet and friendly. The pool was very pleasant. There was lots of room out back to walk the dogs. We would stay there again if we were in that part of Iowa again. We ate at a great Mexican restaurant down the road. It was a nice change from chain restaurants.

What a wonderful place! After one night in the closest place I've ever stayed in to the Bates Motel from the movie "Psycho"- down the street (the A-Ford-O), the Super 8 looked like a five star hotel!
We were very lucky to get a last-minute cancellation at the Super 8, which was clean with nice rooms- mini fridge and microwave, even a hairdryer in the room! Wonderful staff, very nice and efficient. Great safety with card-keyed entrance to the building and the room. Excellent location in Atlantic- next door to the best restaurant in town "The Feed Lot". Also next door to a grocery store that mailed 5 packages for us- service until 10:00 pm- a God send after a successful visit to a nearby antique show. A good breakfast buffet included in the price of the room (the best milk I've had in a long time- those cows must be fed on the local corn!) Also, McDonalds one block away and a new Walmart being built across the street. I highly recommend the Super 8 in Atlantic Iowa!!!
