I got the Super 8 through the Hotwire gamble. Should have took it for a sign as to how our gambling would go in South Lake Tahoe... ;-)
The room was OKAY. Nothing spectacular. Cable with HBO, but no movie options, which kept us at the Casino until 1 am, instead of relaxing in the room. NOTE: This was my first time using Hotwire... and I will NEVER do that again. Got a smoking room, never asked for one.
There were only two small towels, but when I went down to ask for more, they graciously handed me another set. So that was not a problem. I woke up stuffy and congested from the dust and the smell of cigarettes.
The final, discomforting, note was that when I went to take a shower... at about 9am, there was only Luke Warm or Ice Cold options. No hot water... ugh! -- oh, the coffee at the continental breakfast gave me indigestion the rest of the day. On the positive side, it was not noisy and we got a good nights sleep which was all we really wanted.
