Do not stay here!!! Mold in room! Dirty bathroom! Bathroom sink drains directly to the floor. No phone or alarm clock in room! Internet does not work... So slow we couldn't connect to anything. Only stayed here because area was all booked up. We will never stay here again.

We stayed here because all the other hotels were booked up. I was a little hesitant when booking but we had no choice since nothing else was available. This was by far the cleanest inn I've ever been too. We had an inside king bed room. My mom and cousin had an out side double bed room. All were clean.... More

Strong odor of mold in room. Towels were filthy. Crumbling stairs to second floor. Door lock was not secure. Inches of dust present on bathroom screens. Live plants growing from falling down rain gutters. It was allegedly the last room available. We were out of there ASAP in the morning. Seems like a real health hazard. Probably too dirty even...

We were given a room on a second floor. The room did not have elevator access and my wife of 80 years has a heart condition. Despite that no accommodation was made. The room itself and the motel were run down. It had worn out furniture, the corridors needed paint and repair. In short, the hotel lacked maintenance. On our... More

This hotel is everything that the reviews describe and less. We expected an older, smelly and ill maintained facility...we got it. We expected an inflated price due to lack of vacancies in town...we got it. We expected a complimentary breakfast as indicated on their webpage...we didn't get it. We expected the owner to compensate us for not providing breakfast that... More

Where to start... This was our last choice, the other hotels in town were booked because of a couple events at the college. We checked in Friday night, the room was fine, not good but not bad. We had a couple questions for the front desk about the TV and they tried to help us but they weren't helpful and... More

Everything in the room was old, the rugs the bedding the furniture, everything!! The shower did not work properly, the water went from hot to cold and then back again without any control -... More

I booked a room here for two nights for a friend's wedding after finding the Microtel had no more vacancies (have stayed there in the past and was very pleased). After booking, my boyfriend looked it up and was finding some pretty laughably bad reviews. It seemed the more recent reviews were a little more positive and it was pretty... More
