This stay was part of a 10 day trip across the country. Super 8 Elkhart was the most expensive stay we had, nearly twice what we paid for a Courtyard by Marriott. I've had some good luck in the past with Super 8 so I was pretty suprised that this was the worst I've ever experienced. Looking at it from the road it looked like a condemned property, but it was, indeed open. Enter the lobby and no one is there. A sign says to dial "0" on the desk phone and someone would be with us. This was the scenario our entire stay. No one monitors the lobby where anyone can walk in off the street and have their run of the building. So much for security. As for the room, it was clean but very cramped. A very uncomfortable chair was wedged between the exterior wall and one of the beds and sat underneath the exposed clothes rod that served as a closet. And another security concern: the extra lock on the door was a feeble chain, not the heavy duty security latch that is standard everywhere else. Breakfast was OK, but for the price they charge this motel is a rip-off.
