I'd be embarrassed to be manager or corporate rep here. I chose the property because of an ongoing Choice hotels promo, other wise would have tried around the corner first at the Travelodge, where I had a great stay a few years ago (though it was branded Carlson at the time).
The desk clerk at check-in was abrupt and more interested in getting back to watching her TV show in the back room. The clerk at checkout was slightly more involved but still seemed to have better things to do. Breakfast was 7-10 but at 9 there were only 2 of the cereal selections left, some muffins and a few bagels. The cold eggs were empty, yogurt gone, and with 4 of us standing there, there was only 1 cup of coffee to be had (though at least the desk clerk did make more - but to run out of coffee??). The lady who appeared to be responsible for the breakfast moved slightly slower (as we'd say on the farm) than "molasses in January". Last time I checked, it was still called the hospitality industry - pretty inhospitable overall. I'd be doing a staff housecleaning.
Despite putting on my electronic reservation form that I wanted a quiet room, I was on the front, facing a truck route rather than the quiet back part of the hotel (made no sense when they were maybe 20% occupied?). The room was a decent size and the queen bed adequate. The room was moderately clean though the grout in the tub was due for a good scrub. The second floor was a nuisance with no elevator - lug suitcases up and down stairs. Again, at 20%, they could have been a bit more accommodating.
All in all, it was not a pleasant experience and despite a lower price, this was one where you got what you paid for - and definitely no more. There are hotels that appreciate you choosing them - after my experience, I'd shop around more before settling on this.
