Not my usual Microtel 5-star rating :(
Posted Nov 15, 2016 on Hotels
I normally love Microtels, and I always search them out in any area I'm traveling because that have always been clean, well-managed, a good deal for the price. This particular Microtel (the rooms and hallways) was not so great. I stayed in Rm 304 one night, and 306 the next night. Both smelled like they had been "smoking rooms" in the past: the carpet was dingy, and the room, hallways/floors just seemed tired and stinky, like a cheaper bargain-basement hotel. The staff was friendly, and the food good, the fees good as elsewhere. But I was disappointed with the sense that this hotel's management was not spending the money needed to upgrade, really strip and redo old smoking rooms, or keep the hotel up to standards I've come to expect elsewhere. Sad about that!
