I stayed at the Super 8 for the second time. The first time I was in an upper room. The facility has been remodeled and the rooms are super-cute. The rooms look and feel like a nice hotel rather than a budget motel.
This time we were placed on the end which is only one level and is situated right where the two roads lanes come together (if you are checking in you will know what I mean). Whatever you do, make SURE you are on the second floor. If you can't do that, at least make sure you aren't down on the end where the traffic breaks around it like the bow of a ship. The traffic noise did die down at 11 and didn't pick up again until 5:30.
In the morning when I took a shower I noticed that there was no lip between the floor of the shower and the rest of the bathroom. I know now that it was an accessible room so the shower was roll-in. That's great but they didn't bank the floor toward the drain so the entire bathroom flooded and I had to put towels against the door to keep the water from flooding out into the room!
The traffic noise was my fault; I picked the hotel. The water wasn't the clerk's fault; she didn't do the tile work (I assume). But both of the clerks were almost robotic. I understand that they are probably paid minimum wage to deal with cheap travelers all day but a smile probably wouldn't kill them.
I didn't complain to the front deskr; instead I will contact the management about the water and chalk the traffic noise/zombie clerk up as a learning experience.
So to sum it up
room was cute and clean
noise is high in lower units
the clerks this time not as friendly as in January
breakfast very bare bones
