Our stay at Microtel in Tallahassee was very disappointing. We have stayed in many Microtel's and this must be the worst one ever. It was the day Osama Bin Laden was killed so wanted to watch Fox News. Couldn't find it on the TV so called the front desk. The channel they said it was was not Fox News. Turned out the whole TV needed to be pre-programmed. Then our air conditioning did not work -this is early May in Florida. The front desk clerk told us we had pushed too many buttons. Told her to send someone up to look at it - turned out they had to replace the airconditioning due to it not working. Based on other Microtels this one was the worst one we have ever stayed in.
Older Microtel in need of updating. Good position, reasonable rates but definitely tired around the edges.
Unlike my bad reviews of Microtel on Daphne Al. and one other in Pensacola where the staff was rude and charged my card, for "INCIDENTALS ONLY" , with the hotel bill, my company had already paid, This location was considerate, did not ask for a card for incidentals ( as most all I stay in do not) , and the room was clean and the continental breakfast was fresh and okay for what they had. I was not there when the room was cleaned so I did not meet the cleaning staff, but the room was clean for day 2.
We loved the Microtel in Macon so we wanted to stay at another one when we stopped in Tallahassee. This one was okay but seemed very old even though it was only 9 years old. The room smelled even though we asked for nonsmoking. TV was an old television and small. No refrigerator or microwave. Staff did not compare either. I would pick a different hotel next time we are in the area.
The phone did not work, and there was no attempt by the staff to fix it. The smoke detector consisted of wires hanging from the ceiling. The commode seat and the sink were scratched and scarred as though they were bought at a demolition sale. The remote control did not work properly. Worst of all, the room continued to get warmer and warmer (with the air-conditioner running) until it was so unbearable that we had to change rooms (1:00 AM). The new room was more tolerable, but the sink and commode looked as bad as the previous room. All of the help spoke little or no English and there was no effort to apologize or at least offer a discount. We go to Tallahassee often and will never stay in this place again. I would be reluctant to stay in any Microtel.
