Good hotel
Stayed there for 2 nights with my family (including 10 month old baby). I was happy with my stay and overall experience at the hotel. Friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast was good. Only problem I faced was very slow WiFi (free).

Hmmmm....not bad and good value
Very convenient location just off 8 Freeway. One concern is that the xlnt value price seems to be attracting perhaps a weekly that there were rooms that seemed to be overcrowded and guests who sat along the edge of the parking lot all day. This is by no means a resort hotel, so I felt it odd and uncomfortable that guests have nothing better to do than sit along the parking lot all day. AND....since my last stay here there is a general inattention to detail. The pillows are lumpy and ancient, there was no shampoo in the room first day (and the grouchy head housekeeper acted as if she were giving me the Hope Diamond when I requested some), the clock radio appeared broken, and my friend's room had no hair dryer and staff said "we don't provide those" when he asked. At least the Front Desk Day Guy is still Great... a Wyndham member I tried to reserve on the site first but the Super 8/Wyndham site refused to accept my a prior guest I phoned the ppty 8:30 PM and desk guy at that time told me he could not do a reservation and that I should call HOTELS.COM to reserve !!!!

Great for the money
The hotel was clean, the room was spacious. We got a two room with 1 king and 2 queens. Overall great hotel, beds were super uncomfortable that is the only negative thing i have.

Goodbye Super 8
All the non slip patches in the tub were gone.. almost slipped 3 times.. had to beg them to put in bath mats... the chair for the computer table.. I almost went back twice on it the bck was not locked.. I told them its a accident waiting to happen... they put in another chair... same problem. I eventually had to use the chair for the eating table.. The hotel was full of refugees from Seria, Uganda, and who knows...their kids kept running around disrupting other tennants.. Very bad experience..........
