"Exceeded My Expectations!"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
This is one review that I am glad to write. My husband and I left Chicago to head to Marion, Indiana to drop my son off at a Christian camp at a nearby college and because it was going to be a 3 1/2 hour drive, we decide to take our dog to the kennel for boarding in Chicago. Since they were overbooked due to an animal hospital closing, we could not leave our dog, so we had to take him with us. So as we drove to Indiana, we called a HotelPlanner hotline to help us locate a decent hotel that was pet friendly. We were given Super 8. I was very hesitant in accepting this option, since I always pass up Super 8, because of my preconceived idea of what it would be like. However, since this was the closest to the college where we where to drop off my son and it was going to be around midnight before we would get to a hotel, we agreed for them to make the reservations. The gentleman who was helping us make the reservation, mentioned that Super 8 Gas City had several favorable ratings from past guests, so that helped me with my decision. Much to my surprise and delight, the hotel was just as nice, if not better than any other hotel that I had visited in the past. The rooms were very clean, the staff was very friendly, and we had an area behind and alongside of the property to walk our dog. I was also extremely pleased that our rooms would be inside the hotel and not accessed from the hotel parking lot. The one time pet fee of $15 was reasonable. I'm very picky about bathrooms and it was extremely nice and the bed was extra comfortable. Since going through chemo and cancer treatments, I wake up many times during the night because of insomnia, but I slept thru the night because the bed was so comfortable. I mentioned how nice everything was to a desk manager, Cody and he told me that the owner does a great job in seeing that the property stays clean and updated, he also mentioned that there hasn't been much staff turnover in the last 8 years, which says a lot about this being a great place to work. If I were to ask for anything different, it would be to just add eggs (fried or boiled) plus sausage or bacon to the breakfast meal. Other than that, our stay was extremely restful. Thanks for a wonderful weekend at Super 8 Gas City. If we have to bring our son back for camp next year, we know where we are staying.
