I can't even begin to describe how INCREDIBLY rude the staff (young male) was when I checked in. The room was very tiny, the tiny pillows were like rocks, but then, so was the bed. We travel that way several times a year, but will avoid this place like the plague from now on!

This location is actually a bit difficult to find...but just keep going on that road and you'll find it toward the end of the road on the west side. :)

Management would not do anything about loud screaming and running down the halls late at night. I had to leave and check into another hotel. Super 8 would not refund my money. The police arrived as I was leaving as I think another tenant complained also,
