We stayed here for one night in June 2013 while en route back from vacation. We very often stay at Microtels, but this one was $15 or so more expensive per night than others. It is conveniently located, right off route 15/29.
The receptionist at the desk was extremely friendly and got us checked in quickly.
We went up to our room (318) and discovered it had no mini-fridge. I think this is the first time we have ever stayed in a Microtel and been without a mini-fridge. When we went back down to ask the receptionist if there were other rooms with a mini-fridge, the reply (delivered in a very friendly and apologetic manner) was that only suites come with mini-fridges. We had frozen food in a cooler with us and expressed our concern. She offered to put in in the office fridge and that sufficed. It meant our ice blocks did not get refrozen, however, and we are a bit concerned about how well our frozen goods did on the 6 hour drive home the next day.
The bed had a soft mattress, while I have a bad back and need a firm mattress (as I requested in my reservation). So we had to use the portable, folding bedboard I take everywhere (just in case). My wife comments that the sheets at Microtels are wonderful and this place was no exception there.
The room seemed a little bit worse for the wear, however. There were some scuff marks on the walls and a chip in the bathtub. Further, the room smelled HEAVILY of some sort of freshener. That smell did not fade in our one night there.
While the bathroom provided three bars of soap, there was no shampoo. There was no dirty clothes bag in the closet (unlike every other hotel I have stayed in). The icemaker on the third floor wasn't working (or at least gave no ice at 7:30 in the morning when we tried).
So, location gets 3.5, price gets 2.5, staff gets 4, room gets 2. Overall 3.
We might stay here again, but it is more likely we would look elsewhere first. In fact, there's a GREAT Holiday Inn Express in Orange that we would have chosen, but it was booked up the night we needed.
