I often stay at Super 8s when in a place not covered by Hotwire. Like any chain, I realize properties can vary widely. This was a last-minute booking made by phone earlier that day and I appreciated the staff's helpfulness on the phone that morning. The hotel is located just off I-88 and surrounded by a Mickey D's, a Pizza Hut, and a K-Mart. Trying to figure out just how to enter or leave the property can be a bit tricky. The check-in was effortless and I was given good directions for convenient parking and accessibility to my room. I was also close to the ice machine - a big help when chilling insulin.
The room was spare, to say the least. The one "easy chair" from which to watch TV was a hard, uncomfortable, "sit-up-straight" desk or table chair. The bathroom lacked a shower curtain. A call to the front desk elicited a chuckle from the clerk but no offer of a shower curtain -- not even a "If you can come to the desk, I'll give you one." Needless to say, no staff member came to my room to provide one. When I mentioned this to the cheerful check-out clerk the next morning (OK, I didn't want them to think I'd stolen their shower curtain), I was told that on busy nights the housekeeping staff can become overwhelmed and "forget things." Uh, I've never stayed ANYWHERE with a missing shower curtain in my decades of travel! I guess I should have been grateful for the teeny bottle of shampoo (forget conditioner and/or lotion).
What irked me most was the price - $72 for an AAA rate (no senior rate offered) which, with taxes, came to over $80. To put this in perspective, two weeks earlier I'd stayed 3 nights at the Westin at Horton Plaza in San Diego and 4 nights at the LAX Westin at $74/night and $73/night respectively. Yes, these were booked on Hotwire. But $80 for a below-grade Super 8 in rural New York State was ridiculous.
