DO NOT PUNISH YOURSELVES by going to this motel. The bullet proof reception window should have warned us, but we were tired driving all day and needed a place to crash. So I ignored the “red flag” warning signs of a motel which needs bullet proof reception.

Anyways, after checking in, we found the room was hot and humid, the air conditioner was not working, we called the front desk and he came in after about half an hour. He tried to fix it but couldn’t do it. He then asked us to wait for an hour more to see if the AC works! I refused, and asked for another room immediately. We also pointed out to him that the liens were worn and had spots on it, the shower did not have water pressure, and there were some foul smells in the room. He eventually gave us another room. But we discovered that although the AC in that room was working, rest of the room was as bad, if not worse than the previous room.

We were too exhausted to have another conversation with the front desk and tried to get some sleep as it was about mid-night and we were planning to resume our journey South by 7 am. But we couldn’t. The stink, the foul smelling bed sheets etc was just too just much. There was also a lot of commotion and arguments going out in the parking lot throughout the night.

Although they take full payment when you check in, they give you payment receipt only when come back to the front desk to check out, else they don’t! (Does it have to do with avoiding IRS/ taxes on rooms paid for by cash? I don’t know.) So at checkout I went to collect my receipt and the clerk gave me an invoice for TWO rooms stating that we had used two rooms. I said off course, we there sweating in the 90 degrees heat for an hour till we were able to get an alternate room. I said how anyone stay in a room 85-90 degrees with no AC or fan? But she did not relent. I asked the receptionist to call the Duty Manager listed as Ms Patel, but she refused to neither come in person nor speak to me on the intercom. After the receptionist discussed my case with her on intercom, she told me the matter is settled and handed my invoice for one room that I signed. Imagine my frustration when the next day I discovered that they charged my card once at night, and again second time in the morning!

Once we drove off from there about an hour or so drive south, we come across many billboards of motel chains advertising their current rate which was in between $30 to $50, almost 50% of what we paid! We got ripped off not just rate wise, but got charged twice for the rat hole!

My suggestion to the travelers going South, just dive on for an hour or two max and you will get a better value and priced motels then this rat hole and those traveling North, do stop a bit early to give this Super 8 Roanake Rapids Motel a miss.

My earlier experience with Super 8 had been acceptable, but this franchisee has ensured that my family and friends will not be giving any of our business to Super 8 unless they remove or rein in what I believe to be such unscrupulous operators who double charge their unsuspecting guests, cut corners and pinch pennies to make larger profits and give horrible time to their guest.

Super 8 Chain could do well and put in some random inspection program that ensures to us customers some minimum level of room cleanliness and service standards that are actually in practice rather than only in manuals.

But alsas, I don’t see that happening. Their royalty comes from these operators, and they will not discomfort the goose that lays them eggs! It is their short term profits v/s long term losses. As more and more people get ripped off by similar franchises and starts avoiding Super 8, the time to redeem their goodwill may have already passed them by.

Location was great, right off of 95. The room had a sour odor and the were electric wires for the bathroom light just running against the ceiling. Very un-professional. Huge gap in door to outside. There was a family from New York partying at 1:30 am outside of our room which made it just a little difficult to sleep with the gap in the door.
