No Internet?!?!?

The rooms were clean. Housekeeping even showed up both days. (I stayed two nights.) There were plenty of towels. The price, reasonable, but... No Internet. None. When I arrived the man at the front desk was on the phone with Comcast trying to get it fixed. They couldn't come out until the morning. (Comcastic!) He also had somebody from Super 8 on the phone to make and confirm reservations. I spent all day Saturday at the Battlefield. When I came back on Saturday night at 8pm, there was still no internet. Or assume there was since there were 8 people standing in the lobby waiting to be checked in. I didn't really ask. I went to my room and sure enough there was the old Super 8 network and new "Super8" network. The problem was that the new "Super8" network required a password due to WPA encryption. The old network still had DHCP problems since I was still getting an APIPA address on it. I went to bed. I was tired from walking around playing Ingress all day. I decided to wait until morning. I got up in the morning and both networks were still up. The original still had the APIPA problem. The new one still had WPA encryption. I went to breakfast and realized the lady at the front desk was on the Internet. I went back to my room and yes, there were still the same problems APIPA and WPA. I went to the front desk to ask and was told there was no password. She was on the computer and it worked fine. I dropped it. I assume that the owner went and bought a wireless router from the store to get his Internet connection back, but didn't want to tell anyone about it since it was limited in capacity. (Although, I would've named the SSID to something besides "Super8.") I didn't want to press the lady at the front desk. While I was eating breakfast, she came to the breakfast area, declared it a mess and then went back to the computer. SHE SAW THE MESS, BUT DIDN'T BOTHER TO DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT. Eventually, I got up and threw the trash away. Had I a towel, I would've wiped it down. I guess I could've gotten a napkin. All the breakfast supplies seemed low at 8 o'clock in the morning, too. (At this price point, I don't really expect a breakfast. Save the money Super 8, spend it somewhere else.) This web site said the place had Internet, but as of 6/2014, they didn't. I'm not sure what's going on with this hotel, but they seem to be disorganized. Positive things about this hotel: There are two supermarkets, a Taco Bell, and a McDonald's with in walking distance of this hotel. The McDonald's has WiFi!

Smokey The Bear

Well you can't argue the price in the remote area of Maryland that I was in.....However, I did ask for a non smoking room and maybe there was no such thing? But good Lord as soon as I walked in that room I thought somebody was having daily bonfires' in there. I quit smoking 5 years ago and don't mind being around people who do but this was horrible. It was in the bed sheets, curtains chair etc....Not a good time. Should of brought several cans of disinfectant spray.....

Great value & location!

Chose this hotel based mainly on price and located close to highway and I was very pleased! The staff was extremely friendly and personable. There wasn't much to do at the hotel, but I didn't need anything and it was clean, comfortable, and quiet- near residential area; fast food and family-style restaurants and supermarket within walking distance. It's not far from Gettysburg and other historical attractions, and also very close to beautiful state parks and recreation areas.

quick in and out

5 minutes after i got out of my vehicle I was heading for my room and the next morning all i did was lay my key on the counter. The attendant said thank you, when i asked for a receipt she said it would be emailed to me. can't ask for anything more. Room was quiet and probably one of the most comfortable i have stayed in. It was a five minute drive to a very good restaurant and another 7 minutes to my meetings.

Quiet getaway

Staff friendly and helpful with directions. Great location, close to state parks, mountain scenery and plenty of places to eat. Large room but lacked adequate seating.

Great for hiking without the camping

We picked this hotel for its proximity to the Cunningham falls state park....a 5 minute drive puts you at all the hiking and the lake. Plus we were able to walk across the street to have access to a grocery store and 2 or 3 restaurants. Rooms and breakfast are exactly what you would expect from a motel off of route 15.
