“Great Value”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

For the price this is a great hotel. The beds are comfortable, rooms are clean and quiet, and parking was fine. Getting here is a bit difficult with construction and one must take precaution not to get lost. the location is great though not really in walking distance to much. would stay here again.

This hotel was very nice and quiet, the hotel manager was very accommodating with the type of room I requested. Being that I was from put of town the location was tricking to find but overall I enjoyed it.

We arrived for a Concert in late April, and could not have been happier with our stay.

Granted that we arrived late both nights and honestly came in to crash, but it was lovely and the staff were great.

The young man at the front desk was extremely friendly and quick with his paperwork, and the maids cleaned up great.

As a whole, I would stay at a super 8 again. Little hard to find with the construction going on, though, nothing against the hotel, just an opinion.

This hotel, while not a HORRIBLE hotel, was definitely not what I expected. Several locals we talked to mentioned that this hotel is not in a very desirable part of town, and it's obvious from the condition of the rooms. The bathroom ceiling vent was full of dust, and the paint/drywall was stained and crumbling. The beds, while "clean", do not have comfortable linens or pillows. We didn't get a chance to sample the free breakfast, but it looked like there was a waffle maker and possibly cereal. Not what I expected for a free continental breakfast, but I can't imagine this hotel getting too much business outside of Rockville or other types of festivals/concerts. The staff was friendly, and helpful. The hotel itself doesn't have a pool - but they have a sister property across the parking lot (I think it was a Scottish Inn or Knights Inn?) that they allow guests to use. Wifi never connected, on my phone or iPad. The lock on the door was very loose, and threatened to buckle if too much pressure was put on it from the outside. We actually had to move the fridge in front of the door as an extra a security precaution at night.

I can't complain too much - we weren't really in the hotel much, except to sleep. But you definitely get what you pay for. This was one of the cheaper hotels in the area, and is hyped up better than it represents. I wouldn't recommend staying here unless you aren't big on amenities or cleanliness. It was fairly convenient to the Downtown area, and there were a few places closeby to eat (Subway in the Walmart). Probably wouldn't stay here again, unless it was a last minute/no other choice type situation.

Room Tip: No elevator, and stairs are on either end of the buildings.
