Super 8 Complaint Department

Dear Reader,

I have been a victim of the most unsafe motel stay and a potential scam at Super 8, Grant Road, Tucson, Arizona (Super 8 Tucson, 550 W. Grant Road, Tucson, AZ 85745; phone [protected], FAX [protected]). I paid for one night in a room with a shower rod that was not connected, a torn shower curtain, and multiple breaks in the wall. The dry wall crack in the bathroom appears to have black mold growing in it. I could have fallen and broken my leg in the shower if I grabbed the shower curtain or rod.

I have never stayed in such a broken down motel room before. I had the worst check in experience as well as the attendant would not give me my AAA discount as he said "I cannot rerun your AMEX card or cancel this reservation". I wanted to move to the Comfort Inn next door (which is the same price by the way but rooms are clean, safe, and towels are not thread-bare) but felt I could not afford to "eat" the $90.28 room charge (includes tax).

I am asking for a refund of $77 for this motel stay and for Super 8 to check out this franchise for safety and health.

I am a regular Motel 8 customer; been staying at Motel 8 in Tucson for the past 6 years.

    Unfortunately they may not be able to refund you since you did spend the night. It doesn't hurt to try though. I would recommend forwarding your pictures and information directly to Super 8.
