2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012 via mobile

We booked this Hotel as a stopover during travel. We got delayed in a snowstorm and called to cancel or transfer our reservation to a closer microtel. The manager REFUSED to cancel or transfer our reservation! Knowing we'd be paying for the room regardless, we drove through the snow and got to the hotel at 2:00am. There we experienced- a smelly room that was close to the lobby where their TV was so blaringly loud it kept waking us up (even when we we exhausted from driving )!
The shower pipes made noises.
At breakfast my son made a waffle - we took one bite and realized the batter must have gone rancid. I made a 2nd waffle just to double check- again seriously so bad I spit out my bite for fear of getting sick. I told the attendant the batter needed to be taken away as it was bad and would get someone sick - but she just said "yea - maybe it's old" and shrugged her shoulders as to what to do about it.
There are 3 other hotels at this exit - choose one of them instead! We wish we had!

The staff were friendly and efficient and helpful. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean. We appreciated that the breakfast was ready before 6AM when we were leaving though in the past we have been able to make tea in the evening this time there wasn't hot water available. The overall impression of the hotel was shabby but work was underway to install new carpets.

Thanks for the review. As you saw, we are currently in the process of installing new carpet, in which week 1 of 3 is finished and about a third of the way complete. I apologize about the hot water availability. If you ever notice anything that we can get you in the form of hot water or coffee to extra blankets and pillows, please do not hesitate to notify us and we will more than happy to help you in a jiffy. Thanks again and we will hope to see you again in the future.

We stayed on our way to Florida from Ontario. The hotel is a little dated but clean and well run. Jeffrey, the manager on the night of our stay, was a delight and very helpful. If you're looking for a good clean place to get a good night's sleep for cheap, stay here.

Sam P, Manager at Microtel Inn by Wyndham Dry Ridge, responded to this review, November 7, 2012
Thanks for the good review. We always try to win our customers over with our cleanliness. I believe that in December 2012 we have planned on installing new carpet in our rooms, hallways, etc. so that we can address the "dated" issue. We are hopefully going to budget new chairs and window cushions the following year and perhaps new TVs soon too. The economy is our biggest factor on the other improvements and hopefully we can stay busy enough to make these other changes. The carpet is a definite and should be completed by the end of December 2012.
