We didn't need a lot of room or luxury, so saved about $70 over our usual hotel down the street, and originally paid for two nights through hotels.com.
Yes, the room was VERY small, and the furniture was scuffed. However, the carpet seemed new, and the tiny bathroom had granite counters and seemed completely remodeled. The TV was fine, as was the internet connection. Toiletries were excellent, although there was no iron or coffeepot, but there was a refrigerator, always handy to have. The bed was comfortable and everything was spotless.
Breakfast was minimal, but had all the basic essentials, fruit, a pastry or toast, beverage, with toaster waffles and french toast as well. Yogurt or hard boiled eggs to add some protein would have been a great addition, but we could have provided that in the fridge in our room.
Very late, I found out that my business appointment the next afternoon had been suddenly canceled. Unfortunately, I couldn't reach someone we had planned to meet for dinner afterward that night. Very early the next morning, I got a text saying that we could substitute lunch, so we could, if the hotel was cooperative, leave for home early. Hotels.com said that if the hotel was OK with it, they would issue a refund. I didn't think the hotel clerk would be able to do that, but he immediately was very nice, and agreed! Then, because my ATT cell phone would not work there, he also dialed the call on his phone to Hotel.com and took care of it on the spot. That way, we were able to stay at a hotel that night along the road to home and shave hours off our trip the next day -- welcome after a grueling 3 days of business.
If you need space and luxury, then no, but a great place to lay your head with personal problem solving available, a definite "yes."
