You never know what you'll get into with motels. As it turned out, the Super 8 Motel in Blue Springs wasn't too bad: it was reasonably clean, the rooms were plenty big, and equipped with a refrigerator and microwave, there was coffee 24 hours a day, and the rates were great. Oh, and the employees were friendly and helpful. That's the positive side.
We all had a couple of complaints: The chlorine from the inside pool so permeated the air that our eyes burned, at times, when meeting together in the breakfast area to chat. And the only thing they served for breakfast was donuts... no cereal and fruit. If I can find a way to communicate with them on their website, I'll convey these thoughts to them.
I'd rate our motel experience more positive than negative, however.
