Local Business Spotlight: Super 8

For nearly 30 years, Super 8 has offered highway travelers and Eufaula visitors a clean, comfortable and economical place to rest and recharge.

Super 8, part of the Wyndham Hotel Group family, operates nearly 2,400 locations in the United States, Canada, China and Brazil. The Eufaula location has been in operation since January of 1990.

K.B. Patel has served as general manger of the Eufaula Super 8 for the last 22 years and enjoys helping each visitor that stays at the property.

“I like serving the customers that stay with us,” said Patel. “It doesn’t matter if they are travelling through to somewhere else, or staying in Eufaula, when they stay with us at Super 8, we make sure they enjoy their time. I enjoy making sure our customer service is the best.”

The very first Super 8 opened in Aberdeen, South Dakota in 1974. Since then the company has expanded past its Mid-West roots and operates locations in all 50 states and four different countries.

The Eufaula Super 8 offers 42 rooms, and its location on Highway 431 (Eufaula Avenue) allows guests easy access to local shops and restaurants.

“It is a really nice locations here,” said Patel. “There are plenty of restaurants within walking distance of the hotel, and the shopping and eating locations downtown are a very short drive away. You have a little bit of everything close by here.”

For Patel, getting up everyday and coming to work is something he enjoys and takes pride in. For more than two decades, he has operated the facility in Eufaula and has grown to enjoy the small-town atmosphere of the community.

“Eufaula is a great town to be in,” said Patel. “We aren’t big, but there are things here that big towns don’t have. The Chamber works to try to bring new business and new events to town, and that is a great thing. We have some areas we could be better in, but overall Eufaula is a great place to be.”
