- super 8 motelFirst to ReviewOct 12, 2012
t's Halloween eve and I was heading to Knott's Scary Farm for some fun. Usually, I'll drive back home afterwards, but if I go after a full day of work, I'll find a hotel to stay at near Knott's.
I've stayed at the Super 8 that was on Beach Blvd before. According to the Super 8 website - that place is no longer a Super 8 and this location was now the "Buena Park/Knott's Berry Farm" location. The lady at the front desk told me that that particular location used to be a Quality Inn (I could see that with the way the buildings were constructed) and that the other location was NOT a Super 8 anymore.
I have to say - I wasn't expecting much - it is a Super 8 after all. You don't go here expecting down comforters and room service. But considering how economical the other one was....I was pleasantly surprised at this one.
There was a fridge and a microwave in the room, and the room was surprisingly large. I had a 1 king size bed with couch area type of room.
There was free continental breakfast - but I did not partake since I didn't get up until 11:30, right before I had to check out.
It served it's purpose - and it was across the street on the southside of Knott's, so I didn't even have to pay for parking.
The walls were rather thin - or maybe it was just the crazy people next door slamming doors, yelling and screaming at each other and the hysterically sobbing all the while their car alarm was going off and they kept attempting to turn it off. And then the same people decided at 7am that they were going to be hammering something in their room. The front desk lady apologized when I talked to her as I checked out - but really - was there anything that they could do at 3am?
Other than the crazy couple next door - I'd definitely come back again - if I need a place right next door to Knott's. By far - this was cheap and clean and served it's purpose - with a wee bit of unexpected entertainment.
