You get what you pay for... and sometimes more.
Posted Jul 1, 2016
When you stay at a 2-star establishment, all you really want is a clean, comfortable room. Anything else is a bonus. We got a clean, comfortable room, with a very nice shower. It also had a microwave and fridge, which were bonuses. The fridge allowed me to refreeze my bottles of water, which I use as ice in my cooler. There was no breakfast, but the on-site diner was inexpensive, and good. Last but not least, the check-in lady did not collect the $20 pet fee for our two small dogs, even though I told her we had them. On checkout, I pointed that out, ready to pay, but the check-out clerk said, "Well, if they didn't collect yesterday, don't worry about it." Another bonus. All in all, I'd say, don't expect the Ritz, and you'll be just fine.
