About Super 8 Motel
Super 8® began in 1974 with one modest motel in Aberdeen, South Dakota, offering rooms for $8.88 per night. More than 30 years later, Super 8 is now a roadside institution offering guests consistently clean rooms and friendly service at over 2000 motels across North America.

Our typical guest is a cost-conscious but discriminating working professional traveling for business or leisure, or retired leisure traveler. Wherever they are, our guests can count on clean rooms at reasonable rates at any Super 8 motel along the way.

Based on the philosophy of providing consistent, friendly service and clean rooms at low rates, Super 8 was born in a coffee shop in Aberdeen, South Dakota. This coffee shop dream between two acquaintances, Dennis Brown and Ron Rivett, came to fruition in September 1974 when the first Super 8 motel was opened for business in Aberdeen, charging a mere $8.88 a night. Since then, Super 8 can be found in more locations than any other economy lodging chain in the world.
