Super 8 Jefferson

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

My husband and I had stayed at this Super 8 before and found it clean and comfortable. Not this time. The room smelled of acetone, the air conditioner was ineffective, the shower curtain had mold growing on it (see photo), and there was no room service. Clean towels yes but that was it. They didn't make the bed, give us more coffee, or even clean drinking glasses. When I asked why there was no maid service he said that's the way we do things. Well I will do something too. NOT STAY THERE EVER AGAIN.

We stayed at the Super 8 in Jefferson in April 2017, appearance from outside was clean. This is a nuts & bolts hotel, took us 30 minutes waiting for the clerk to check us in, as he was sleeping. Our room was clean, the beds could use new mattresses', as expected you can hear everything from the rooms above, all in all I would say this is place was ok - nothing fancy - if you are just looking for a place to sleep. They did offer a free continental breakfast w/ coffee.

I thought staff and manager were very professional,cordial and helpful.facvility seemed to be well maintained.Good stay

We went to see a concert at the casino and their hotel was booked, so I was happy to see Jefferson had another option with Super 8. While expensive for a normal Super 8 room, its about half the price of the casino. They included breakfast the next morning. Every employee I met was very friendly and willing to go above and beyond to make my stay more pleasant. Normal amenities included for a hotel.

Usually I have no complaints about this Super 8, but this time we never had housekeeping stop by and we were there for four nights. Plus the beds were hard which we've never noticed before. The owners were nice and let us switch rooms the first night because the stool didn't flush. We didn't want to change rooms again that night because the bed was hard, but they did give us extra pillows which helped us get sleep. The owners were very helpful in getting a room cancelled in another town when we found out Jefferson did have a vacancy.

I had a pretty good stay. The only thing I didn't like about the room was the bed. It felt as if the head of the bed was slanting down and it was really hot in the room even tho I had the heat on 65 degrees.

What a great job the new management has done with this motel! Sean was so friendly and accommodating, it was like staying with family. I'll definitely be back. Very clean, reasonably priced, and a great location (intersection of US 30 and Hwy 4).

The staff went out of their way to make sure we could check in a little early (our request). They were always available for help or questions. Very clean room and comfortable beds.

The front desk clerk was wonderful. That's where the good ended. My room smelled...I couldn't quite figure out WHAT the smell was, but it was a cross between vomit and urine I suppose. The carpet was filthy. My feet got dirty from walking barefoot on it. Then there was the massive WOLF SPIDER that fell out of the toilet paper roll (yes it was alive). NEVER AGAIN will I stay at any Super 8.

Where do I even begin?! The rooms were overpriced for a Super 8. We were planning to stay for a week, with a rate of $63 but as it turned out the staff treated us like we were criminals, so we left after the first day. The OWNER of the hotel basically robbed us and charged our debit card for 4 days at a rate of "$100 per night." If you want to feel robbed, helpless, and infuriated this is the place for you! We would not recommend the Super 8 in Jefferson City Iowa to even my worst enemy. Even if it means driving a little further, and spending the gas money, because this place is 100% not worth it. I am really hoping this review really deters potential travelers from staying in this sad excuse of a hotel.
