Thread: Super 8 pricing trend

  1. #1

    Super 8 pricing trend

    So I was unpacking tonite and organizing old stuff.
    Came across a couple of my old receipts from the super8 and thought I'd share.

    We typically stay thurs, fri, sat and checkout Sunday morning.

    2010 they charged me $205.80
    2011 they charged me $219.92
    2012 they charged me $245.10

    $40 increase over two years or there's a discount I ain't gettin lol

    They fisted me up to the bicep this year. I ended up paying 355 for four nights. Not sure how that worked out, but it was 75 dollars a night plus 40 something for room tax?
    I almost had a psychic girlfriend but she dumped me before we met.

    If anyone here believes in psychokinesis, please raise my hand.

    Id be interested to see if the tax rate went up. Hotel taxes are high no matter where you go. They were also purchased by wyndham hotels. Im sure that constituted an increase. They do sell out every year. Supply and demand makes sense. If they go up in price and still sell out you can't blame them.
    It's not a doll it's an action figure.

    The supply/demand thing makes sense, it was just a sticker shock moment for me.

    I think whtever discount we had has faded away. The Wheeling one was full so I stayed at the Super 8 just over the Ohio border (10 minutes away) and it was $128 for 2 nights with taxes.
    Better late than never.....

    We actually discussed this at the Mego Suite I believe. We may look for something else next year. Some people look for a hotel with a pool for their kids and stay somewhere else. But I'm guessing they would be more anyway. Of course the main reason we stay at the Super 8 is they know us by now and it's 2 blocks from the Kruger Toy Museum. But yea, I noticed the increase to the wallet as well.

    I moved to the Hampton Inn this year, which is three miles up the road, about 25%more expensive, and about 6000% upscale from the Super 8.

    Yeah, Super 8 really went downhill since last year. We were on the third floor this year and the room stunk of cigarettes. It also wasn't pleasant opening the night table and finding a half eaten bag of fritos. I know Ron has a story to tell about the maid service and how bad that was. Might be up the road a bit next year. I don't think there has been one year that we haven't had a problem with reservations.
