“Cheap, around a lot of stuff and convenient but don't expect hospitality.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 March 2011

Picked this hotel for the price. I got exactly what I paid for. This is by far the CHEAPEST feeling hotels I've stayed at. This should be called a motel. However it is close to the I95 and lots of stores (even a Costco!) And restuarants. This hotel is so hard to get to. It has the cleanest bathroom but I may not see the dirty for it is sooo dark, the lighting is horrible! This is an old hotel. No flat screen tv. Air conditioner unit was hard to control. Continental breakfast is a joke. Luckily I am staying for a short time, not even 12 hrs, I don't know if I could stay here for that much longer

Our room was musty smelling from the start. We had a late check-in and thought the smell would be alleviated with the air conditioning running. It was not. It was so damp and musty in our room that our bed linens felt damp and so did our clothing. The smell and moisture only got worse as we stayed. We made a point to say something upon check out and were offered no discount for the horrid conditions.

The Hotel is managed very poorly, the manager is VERY RUDE and unaccomodating.....We had been travelling all day and arrived late, we set the alarm clock so that we could meet the 11am check-out time but, unknown to us, the clock was not set correctly in our room it was 1 hour off probably the result of the staff not resetting it after daylight savings change last week. The error ended with us checking out at noon instead of 11am because we were going by THEIR CLOCK. The manager insisted on a $10 late checkout fee !!!! He became rude and abusive, insuting and threatening.
A complaint has been filed with Super 8 Corporate, who were very understanding and agreed with us that the late checkout was a result of hotel error....hopefully they will make the buffoon manager return our $10 and apologize.

I have stayed here many times over a 10 year period when business takes me through the area. It is not exactly a Hyatt Grand Regency but it is a good value for a two star hotel.

The pros:
Easy walking distance to Spotsylvania mall and numerous eateries.
Less than 5 minute drive to the huge Central Park shopping area. (A 10-15 minute walk if you cross ten lanes of bumper to bumper traffic on foot. I tried it once. Never again.)
Adequate continental breakfast included (tip- heat the croissants and muffins on 8-10 seconds in the microwave in the buffet area).
Lots of cable channels with a good selection.
Microwave and fridge in the room.
Free local and 800 calls
Free wireless broadband internet

The cons:
Not pleasant if the hotel is filled up. Try to get on the top floor when the hotel is filled if you can stand walking with your luggage up three flights of stairs. Otherwise, you will be kept awake with what sounds like a herd of charging buffalo thundering across the ceiling all night long.
No closet, just a few hangers on a rack by the window
Pillows and towels very thin.
The "good" parking spaces in front fill up fast.

Some other reviewers have complained about the staff. I have
noticed that they are friendly and helpful to people who are pleasant and courteous. If, however, you come in with an attitude and a big chip on your shoulder, you will find them reciprocated. This is still the South (kinda) so manners count!

If you don't have a triple-AAA discount card, try picking up one of the giveaway flyers found in local convenience stores in order to get a few dollars off the standard rate.

The Hampton Inn was overbooked when we got to Fredricksburg so they called over to Super 8, where there were 4 rooms left.

When we arrived at Super 8, the girl behind the "bulletproof" window told us it was going to be $110, more than The Hampton Inn at $90. The Hampton Inn is a 3 star hotel and the Super 8 is a 1 star. I think they were taking advantage of the fact that everything was sold out locally! As I waited for my husband to check in, I watched in the parking lot as dealers and riff raff entered the hotel.

The room was disgusting! The sheets were discolored and there was what looked like blood spots on the blanket. The bathroom was filthy. The tub had footprints left from the last person. The toliet had a dead cigarette butt in the toliet, even though we were in a no smoking room. There is no closet--just a bunch of hangers on a small rack (not that I would have hung anything in that room!)

Needless to say, we decided, after an hour, to leave Super 8 and keep driving until we found something more suitable. When we returned the key, the girl at the front desk told us that she wasn't going to charge us for the room and understood why we weren't staying. THANKS go out to her!
