I have stayed at a lot of Super 8 hotels in my time. This one was not well maintained. Hair dryer did not work, phone had no dial tone. Another in our party had unwanted guests (bed bugs). Would not recommend.

I have stayed in many, man "road side" hotel/motels throughout the United States, as well as foreign hotels and nicer hotels in the U.S. However, I've never experienced an issue at a hotel that infuriated me as much as with this one.

My wife and I stayed here for two nights in order to attend a wedding nearby. Booking was easy enough, I booked directly with Super8 with an AAA discount and had no problems. The problems began upon arrival.

First, I'll mention how creepy it was that there were almost no guests at this hotel. At bed time, there were no more than 10 cars in both the front and back lots combined. Second, the location is in a "sketchy" part of Conroe. Convenient to I-45 and Hwy 105, but I should have looked more closely at reviews and asked around for people familiar with the area. No issues with the sketchiness, but the potential is there. Just be careful.

Third, and the BIG issue for me to mention today is this: When we arrived at our room, we discovered that the room's door would not latch. It would not lock when we left the room. The person on duty came over and "demonstrated" how to lift up hard on the door to get the latch to align with the strike plate in the door. Well, that's pretty ghetto. I immediately worried about what this would mean in terms of the security of our room when we were not there. This feared issue came to pass.

When we left for the wedding, I did the "lift the door handle really hard" to get it to latch thing. Then, I immediately worried that housekeeping would not do this process and our room would be left unsecured. I went directly to the person on duty and explained this concern, multiple times, explaining in technical terms why the door would not lock (latch not aligned with strike). He assured me emphatically that there would be no problem.

We came back about 10 hours later to find, as I feared, that our room HAD BEEN LEFT UNLOCKED ALL DAY LONG. That's right, all you had to do was lightly push the door and it opened on its own, with no key. Since we were on the first floor no more than 10 feet from an exit door, this was especially worrisome. We investigated our belongings, and thankfully, found that nothing was stolen.

Then, I went ANGRILY to tell the guy at the desk. He came, "tested" the door and "lifted" it to get it to latch, as we had been shown, but I explained that in fact the door had been UNLOCKED ALL DAY LONG.... His only response was "I'm sorry sir." That is unacceptable. What should have happened is one of two things 1) the manager should have personally checked our door moments after housekeeping was done and/or 2) we should have been moved to a non-faulty room immediately when the issue was discovered the first night. The facility was practically vacant, anyway. Why could we not get a room with a working door lock?

The Good:
-okay price
-availability
-close to highway
-free WiFi
-free coffee and minimal breakfast items (bread)

The Bad:
-sketchy neighborhood
-incompetent management, dismissive of a MAJOR issue
-killed 3 roaches in our room
-when checking out, rather than speak with the manager, I just left, because the manager was in the midst of an argument with another guest about their room price (and in that case, as well, the guest was clearly right and the manager was incompetent)
-AND OUR ROOM WAS LEFT UNLOCKED AND UNSECURED FOR 10 HOURS IN OUR ABSENCE, EVEN AFTER EXPLAINING TO MANAGEMENT THAT THE DOOR LOCK WAS NOT WORKING RIGHT AND BEING ASSURED THAT HE WOULD HANDLE IT.

What do I want? I want to be comp'd for one or both nights at this hotel. What will happen? Probably nothing. So, for that, this seasoned Tripadvisor reviewer says never, ever go to this hotel and warm others against it. Wyndham hotels corporate will also be hearing from me.

Room Tip: Choose a room in another hotel.

Lets just say that at $90a night I expected a lot better experience. The window was busted and large prices glass werebbeing held up with clear tape. Bathroom door was broken. If you went in and shut the door you had to wait for someone to come rescue you. Hair dryer was broken and missing a peice. Breakfast was a huge joke cosistion of basic cereal and waffles. Air conditioner was malfunctioning (In southeast Texas that's a huge NO-NO) Room had an odor and was told they did not have air freshener. There were two of us and only one towel so had to ask for more. Manager did not seem to care about the state of the room and stated he was aware of the issues. Also there was no one present to check us out. WORST hotel ever

The room was nice and clean. The only thing I would have liked was that the breakfast would have been a little more than what they had available.
