Super 8 Marion

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The hotel is in terrible need of a cleaning. We only stayed there a few hours. Everything is extremely worn and outdated. The front desk staff was pleasant but going in to the room, which was downstairs, felt like I was in dungeon.

What we expected What we expected What we expected

I stayed here for one night, so this was worth it. Receptionists were nice both when checking in and out. Rooms are up to date and comfortable, and the microwave and refrigerator in the room is convenient. I would recommend this hotel.

Staff was nice. This is a super budget hotel without the budget price. Furnishings were very dated. Our room was OK, but down the hall toward the front desk, the cigarette smoke smell was unbearable. This should have been a $39 a night place, not double that.

The young lady that checked me in was very helpful when I had shopping questions, a very nice room, exceptionally clean

A LITTLE DUSTING COULD HAVE BEEN DONE. PERSON ABOVE ME WAS NOISY VERY EARLY IN THE AM.

We were looking for affordable lodgings near I-80, and this Super 8 filled the bill. The room was large and very clean. I would stay there again. The service at the desk was so - so, but what do you expect from a two star motel?

Nice motel. Good parking, grassy areas for dogs. Close to lots of restaurants. I would stay there again.

This hotel was recently renovated. Staff was very friendly. Nice breakfast with waffle maker. Mini fridge and microwave in the room. The room was very clean and well decorated. I was surprised to have such quality for the price. We had never stayed at a Super 8 before and this one made a good first impression.

I booked this for my friend online as she was driving cross country and inclement weather slowed her pace. I encouraged her to stop for the night rather than push herself. She was traveling with her three very-well-trained little terriors, so I chose this hotel based on its pet friendly status. Unfortunately, my friend was charged more in pet fees(non-refundable) than what I paid for the room! The hotel clerk was incredibly rude to her as well I was embarrassed for booking her at this hotel when she told me how he treated her. I was very disappointed as my prior experiences staying with pets at Super 8 Motels have always been excellent.

Everything was fine. Great value for the money. Would definitely stay here again.

My partner and I were traveling from Birmingham, AL to Federal Way, WA. This was our first night out. We arrived after 10pm and found the front desk clerk to be very nice. The room was very large and clean. There was a refrigerator, microwave and most important a coffee maker in the room. Breakfast was small but sufficient. We had yogurt, danish and juice before heading back out on the road.

GOT THERE 2 HOURS EARLY WAS NOT ABLE TO CHECK IN AFTER WAITING FOR DESKCLERK FOR TEN MINUTES. ON RETURN @ 2:00P.M. HAD TO WAIT FOR DESKCLERK ANOTHER TEN MINUTES AS SHE WAS IN THE BATHROOM AGAIN. HAD WORDS WITH DESKCLERK AS TO HER LEAVING THE DESK UNATTENDED AGAIN SHE BECAME VERY DEFENSIVE.ONCE I TOLD HER MY ROOM WAS PREPAID HER ATTITUDE CHANGED AND I WAS ABLE TO CHECK MY GUESTS AND MYSELF INTO THE ROOMS. I THINK YOU NEED TO FIND SOMEONE WHO WILL MAINTAIN THE DESK AREA WITH A LITTLE MORE ATTENTION THAN THE ONE YOU HAVE NOW! SHE DID NOT STATE SHE HAD ANY MEDICAL PROBELM THAT WOULD KEEP HER IN THE WASHROOM. TO LEAVE A DESK UNATTENDED FOR MORE THAN ACOUPLE OF MINUTES COULD BE BAD FOR YOUR BUSINESS.SOMEONE COULD COME IN AND ROB THE PLACE CAUSE SHE WAS NOT AT HER STATION.WAS VERY DISSATIFIED WITH THE DESK CLERK!!

A very clean room and a pleasant staff. This location is close to the major roads and surrounded with dining options. I would definitely recommend it.

Room was clean, quiet, & comfortable. Staff were friendly. Hot waffles for breakfast. Good value!

This hotel met acceptable standards. It's nothing special, but was adequate for an overnight stay on a road trip. It is an older property, but was clean and neat. The best thing was the staff. Both evening and morning staff persons at the desk were not just friendly, but engaging and cheerful. The breakfast was a bit limited in its offerings and the orange juice was actually orange ade. It does have a waffle maker and the usual run of dry cereal and bagels, pastries.

We asked for a handicap room but didn't get it which made it very difficult for my wife, mainly the low toilet. There also were no luggage carts at the hotel which made it rather difficult as we have trouble walking. The room was well equipted with a microwave and refridgerator., a very nice HDTV with good programming. The beds were very clean and extremely comfortable.. The room was a little small but sufficient for us. The water was hot and the room had a very good a/c. The noise from all the trucks from the adjacent truck stop bothered us a little but after awhile, we didn't even notice it. The breakfast in the morning was typical but it was also very fresh and tasty. The staff was very friendly. We will return on our next trip.

We stayed 3 nights here during SIU's Homecoming weekend and it was, overall, a good experience. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was pretty basic, but we only slept and showered in there so it was fine for those purposes. It was quiet each night and we really appreciated that. They didn't clean the room one day and that was the biggest downfall of the stay. The continental breakfast was very basic, but had some good, healthy choices. We would definitely stay there again.

This was our second stay at this Motel in 4 days. We were stopping in Marion for the night on our way back from the Chicago area and it seemed convenient to stay at the same Motel both times. We were on a budget, so we chose the Super 8 Motel. My husband asked for a second floor room for this stay and it definitely was a better room. The room did not have the musty smell that the first floor room did. The bed was comfortable again, although the A/C did not cool as well, it was okay, but we like sleeping in a cool room. Again, breakfast was sparse, but adaquate. If you decide to stay here, choose a room on the 2nd floor if possible. It is a budget minded Motel, you get what you pay for, nothing special.

Our stay at the Super 8 was fine, with one minor problem. We asked for a queen size bed, the room had full size bed. Location and everything else was good.

ok - but would not stay there again

Staff was nice. This is a super budget hotel without the budget price. Furnishings were very dated. Our room was OK, but down the hall toward the front desk, the cigarette smoke smell was unbearable. This should have been a $39 a night place, not double that.
