The employees were wonderful. The hotel itself is quite old and in need of a big remodel. Spacious rooms, but very rough around the edges. Because of this, it should have been priced at least 20 percent lower than it was. It smelled smokey also.. not my room, but some rooms nearby perhaps?

Our family recently stayed at the Super 8 since they allow pets at their property. It is an ok place for the price that you pay to stay here. Close to restaurants is a positive for the motel. Staff was friendly at check in and at check out.

We stayed in town to go to a show. The room was clean and the employees were nice and efficient. At breakfast in the morning, the gentleman working the front desk went to get a friend of mine a chair and he was also picking up people trash so they didn't have to get up. I would give them my...

I know the hotel is old, but it needs a lot of updates. They had towels holding doors open. Ron I believe was his name, at the desk, was the only saving grace.

OK. One problem. I paid cash when I checked in. The next day I saw on my account that they charged me for incidentals on my checking account. I called and they told me it was for incidentals. The person that checked me in never told me about it. I wasn't happy about that.

Thanks for you review. I apologize for the miscommunication. Upon check in your credit/debit card is prior authorized for the amount of your stay. This is unavoidable. Within 7-10 business days your bank will drop the hold on the funds that were prior authorized. This occurs whether you pay by cash or credit card as an assurance the hotel has... More

Had an appointment at Mayo Clinic. It's one hotel that didn't give us a discount for the clinic visit but it wasn't the most expensive place. It was comfy but not outstanding. Continental breakfast was not very good. At least we got Orange juice & yogurt! For a quick trip it was worth it....better than Motel 6 or the red... More

Front desk personnel was very rude in my opinion. Our stay in Rochester was extended, unfortunately. The room we were in, couldn't accomodate because they were booked.

Thank you for the review. Unfortunately neither myself or my staff has any recollection of this incident. With 2 Super 8 hotels in Rochester we sometimes get the wrong reviews. We often have checked guests in early IF rooms are available. Check out is 12 noon so we are unable to guarantee any early check ins. Check in time is... More
