“Do Not Stay Here If Possible”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2009

This hotel was booked as a place to stay while attending events at the Carlisle Fairgrounds. The hotel was across the street from a Days Inn we had stayed at in the past (booked full, hence why we stayed at the Super 8) and figured that at 112.00 a night the Super 8 was on par with the Days Inn price and the days in was a very nice hotel.
The pictures on the internet of the hotel looked nice, in reality the hotel wasn't. Tge sign out front said clean and friendly-what a joke. The guy at the front desk was rude and the hotel was anything but clean. The room was horrible. It was dirty and small, stains on the shower curtin and rug. The threads where pulling out of the comforter on the bed, and the bathroom looked like it hadn't been cleaned (water spots on everything).
The only thing good about this hotel was its location. Stay else where if possible.

We have stayed here 4 times in the past 3 years for car shows. The management changed after our first stay. We have always had clean rooms and bathrooms and have never experienced any bugs here at all, as some previous people have reported. It is pricey for car shows, but all of the motels in the area are, too. For the price, it is not bad if you don't need a pool or if you want to bring a pet. We bring our dogs w/us and have had no problems with them staying there, too. The management and workers have always been friendly. The breakfast area has been remodeled w/tile, new tables, and countertops and looks nice.
We will continue to stay here for Ford Carlisle in June and Fall Carlisle car show in Oct. Of course it isn't the Hilton or first class, but if you are looking for clean and friendly you will find it here.

As soon as i walked in the door, i thought i smelled urine and the lobby did not look even clean. The Pakistani at the counter seemed polite at first at least until i had already booked a night totally because of the somewhat low price. the bathroom did not look like it had been cleaned since the last people had been there. In the morning i got a call from the front desk at 11:00 because i had not heard that that was the check-out time instead of noon and was yelled at that i needed to "leave now." i packed my stuff quickly and went into the bathroom to wash my face since i didnt have time for my shower when the maid started pounding on the door and yelling who knows what through it. The next night i stayed at the Days Inn across the street and had an excellent 5/5 experience.

My wife and 2 children smelled something terrible as soon as we walked into the lobby. The Pakistani guy at the desk was very UNFRIENDLY and lacked personality. When we got to our room my 13 year old said that he would sleep in the car rather than sleep in this room. After going to eat I asked the guy if we could get a room that didn't smell so bad. He said they had no more rooms, and they would try to rid the room of odors by putting an ionizer in the room for an hour. An ionizer was put into the room and the window opened... why I'm not sure.
Anyways we decided Not to stay in this HORRIBLE place and after almost fighting with the guy to get our money back we went to the DAYS INN across the street and had a Very nice stay.
Days Inn had taken in 5 other customers that had had the same experience as my family that day, and gave us a very nice room at a discount price. ( and it was only 7:00 pm)

Not horrible, but I've been to better motels for the price. The bathroom wasn't clean and the bathtub, shower curtain, and provided shampoo bottle had questionable hairs stuck all over. It's right next to an expressway and my room faced the expressway and was pretty loud all night. See if you can ask if you can get a room that doesn't face the expressway.

I booked this hotel through hotels.com. I knew what i was getting booking at the Super 8 and wasn't expecting much at all. Just a decent place to stay for one night that was clean. I also wasn't expecting to see/kill 10 cochroaches in the room during the 1 1/2hrs i spent in the room. After the 10th roach was found we immediately called hotels.com and they were very helpful. They canceled our reservation and refunded us the money for the room. They also found us another room in Carlisle that was roach free! Don't ever stay in this hotel I would have preferred to sleep in my car if we hadn't found another vacancy.

This hotel was comfortable for an overnight stay. The room and bathroom were adequate and clean although the bathroom could do with redecorating. Staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was limited - coffee and carbs - but fresh and plentiful. Proximity to the I-81 means that the hotel is fairly easy to find, but there is traffic noise overnight. Overall this was a good value hotel.
