Positives--the staff was friendly and accommodating. The room was clean. The hotel was right off I-40.
We were tired after driving 12 hours and just wanted a place to get a few hours of sleep before driving another 12 hours to get home. We saw the sign that advertised a low price. It was convenient, so we stopped. They were "sold out" of the inexpensive rooms and we paid $22 more than the big ol' sign out front advertised. It was still a reasonable price, so we agreed to accept the desk staff's friendly offer to show us a room. Oh, it reeked of cigarette smoke, so we declined the first room. The second one had no odor, so we took it.
The room was dated, and nothing fancy, but the shower worked fine and the bed was comfortable. We never did get the "free WIFI" to work.
The really BAD thing was the highway noise. Oh, tired as we were, it was very difficult to sleep. The next morning, we skipped the "free continental breakfast". We are trying to eat healthy. They had sweet rolls, and toast. I only drink coffee with half & half. They only had powdered creamer, so I skipped my morning coffee. They had OJ, but no fruit available.
Driving away in the morning my husband said that he had wanted to go to a Best Western down the street. It did look a lot nicer, and I bet we could have eaten breakfast there. When we inquired about their pricing, we found we could have stayed there for $6 more.
Hey, we were trying to save a few bucks, but hey you get what you pay for.
