“Lobby reeked of smoke”
Reviewed 31 July 2013

There are not many options for lodging in Appomattox, and the closet place for more hotels and any restaurants is in Lynchburg..12 miles away. The exterior grounds were shabby on the verge of junky and the lobby reeked of smoke. Fortunately the room was clean and typical Super 8 comfort.We have stayed at many Super8 and this was by far the worst continental breakfast ever. A few mini doughnuts and some cereal. We left and stopped for breakfast down the road.

This was my second visit to Appomattox and my second stay at this property. I was in the area on an extended stay, and the hotel had very reasonable rates. The service was excellent. The room was very roomy and comfortable, and the wi-fi connection was very fast. I don't recall if there was digital TV service last time, but it was definitely a plus this time. (Reception was spotty during bad weather, as one would expect of a satellite service.) The mattress was a bit on the hard side, and there is still only a flat sheet on the mattress (i.e., no fitted sheet). I skipped the continental breakfast in favor of the nearby grocery store. Overall, it was another pleasant stay, and I would consider them again should travels take me to the area.

The staff were nice and helpful; however, I felt like the price was way too steep for one night. The location is the real reason that I went to this hotel. I was very tired and didn't feel like going all the way into Lynchburg.

Room Tip: Rooms on the back side 2nd floor were quieter. Bottom floors are taken up by out of town workers.

Chose this because, of the two motels in town, it had the better rating. Never stayed at a Super8 before, and the worn, unclean feel of the whole establishment may be typical of the chain. The "Continental Breakfast" featured cereal and white bread; perhaps they had another continent in mind.

Could go on, but the conclusion for us is that the cheaper price and closeness to the museums was more than outweighed by the shortfall in comfort and cleanliness. Building is badly in need of a modernization and rehabilitation.

FYI: Lynchburg is only 20 miles or so away, with more expensive, of course, quality motels. If we were planning to stay more than two nights we would have packed up and move to something there. If we ever return to the area, we will definitely find something other the not-so-Super8!

Room Tip: Don't accept room 205! Worn-out, no tv, cracked window

The staff was very kind. The gentleman at the front desk made sure he was able to see our vehicle on the cameras. I felt safe there
The bathrooms needed updated we had a few dead cockroaches near the window.
I did not see any live ones.
We all got a good nights sleep.
