My experience with Microtel is that most are new'ish properties and most do a decent job of maintaining the properties. They are all very competitively priced. Most properties offer a breakfast that suffers in comparison to HIE or Hampton, but again...you're paying $20-30 less for a "somewhat comparable" room, in most cases. This site was no different.
We walked in, no reservation. Took a Queen suite at $80. The room was clean and the AC worked well, no mysterious smells or stains. The carpet was ripped in the entry hall. The room had a sofa-bed, but we didn't open it. We didn't try the breakfast, but we did get a 10% discount at O'Charleys for showing our room key (nice surprise!).
It was a pleasant one nighter on the side of the interstate. No surprises.
Checkout was PAINFULLY slow. I was told that their computer system ran from the Wyndham mainframe and that if the Wyndham system was experiencing heavy check-ins or check-outs, everything grinds to a halt. In this day and age of free high-speed internet at McD's....seems like Wyndham could improve on this system! We waited for several minutes and finally decided to have our folio emailed instead.
