“Hidden gem in a hidden town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

First of all, I have to say I am glad we made a decision in our itinerary to stop here.
What a weird dichotomy to get off the freeway to enter town, see one convenience store and no less than seven hotels. I chose the Mictrotel because it was pet friendly, and as we are moving, we have our cat with us. The reviews for the other pet friendly hotel are less than admirable.
One negative: it is 3:09 in the morning and I can clearly hear the party going on in the room next door. Not the hotels fault to be sure, but the conversation is pretty normal in tone and volume and I can almost make out the words. Makes me glad there aren't other activities taking place next door.... LOL
That being said: this room is well appointed. The staff are all friendly. The beds are comfortable, and the facility is really nice. I look forward to the breakfast tomorrow, because I'm sure it will be as great as everything else here....

Room Tip: Ask to have quiet guests.... I understand this is a college town....

Stayed 2 nights and every afternoon there were fresh baked cookies, always coffee, hot tea and someone at the desk if I needed something.
The room was practical- clean- the sink is separate from the shower area which is handy-
A padded seat by the window which is good for reading or putting extra luggage so it is not sitting on the floor. In room refrigerator and microwave.
3 floors-and a couple of computers in the lobby to access the internet if you did not bring your laptop.
Friendly staff -comfortable rooms and priced right!

Room Tip: quieter rooms will be on the 3rd floor-

This was a nice facility with very clean rooms and a comfortable bed. Staff was accomodating and friendly. The parking lot was a little small if you have a trailer on but was able to manage just fine! Overall, a great stay.
