Although I had paid travelocity for the room, it seems they get paid by an intermediary go-between travelocity and their hotel, and that code was not working. I'm not sure if they got it straightened out, but I was tired and could not help them and so went to bed.

Probably would not stay there again.

The room was very musty smelling. The bed sloped towards the middle. The price was outrageous for the quality of the room. Although the races were going on at Newton, the price was not justified.

Pros: Free breakfast
Cons: Nothing close
Very outdated and not the cleanest. Toilet made funny noises all night and so did the room upstairs. average breakfast pool was also just average. hallways very cold on the back to room from pool. Heater in room made lots of noise when it ran, Told attendent about it and I don't think she spoke English.

Super Value at Super 8

Having to travel on a tight budget, the hotel exceeded our expectations. Others in our group paid twice as much for not much more than perceived status. Getting a room with a refrigerator and microwave allowed us to keep our costs down during our stay in the area. The continental breakfast certainly was more than sufficient with fresh juices, cereals, toast, muffins and the ability to make our own belgian waffles with freshly mixed batter. Staff was extremely helpful in check-in, check-out and seeing that we were satisfied.

Mice!

Pros: Free breakfast
The hotel is old and a little creepy but I'm also not used to staying in this price range of hotels, so part of that is my own fault! The bed was "wavy", and the room was also a little creepy but I was okay with it once I adjusted my expectations. Then, just as we were climbing into bed for the night, I saw a mouse run across the floor! My husband went to the front desk, and the manager told him that there are mice all over the hotel because it's harvest time and the hotel is next to a field. He offered to give my husband a box trap to put in our room! Haha! My husband said, "Don't tell my wife you said that please. Just switch us to a different room and we will hope she doesn't see any more mice." (Thank you, hubby!) Anyway, we switched rooms and thankfully I didn't see another mouse, but I was freaked out the whole rest of the time. (BTW, my husband told me after check-out what the manager had said.) The waffle maker wasn't clean, so the waffles were covered in black stuff. The location is convenient though, and if you don't care about mice or a nice breakfast and just want a low price, this might be just the place for you! Also, the pool did look pretty nice compared to the rest of the hotel.
