“Air quality bad, Room had been a smoking room turned into non-smoking without refurbishing.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2011

We asked for a non-smoking room and found out it was a smoking room converted to non-smoking. They had no more non-smoking rooms. We had booked it a couple of weeks before and thought we has a nonsmoking room, but couldn't do anything about it. Our clothes even smelled when we got home. The desk clerk said they were making the third floor nonsmoking and referbushing the rooms. But I think it was a disservice to call them nonsmoking rooms before they are ready. I think it was false advertizing to tell me I had a nonsmoking room and give me a room that will be one someday. Not very happy!!

Room Tip: Ask if the room is acually a nonsmoking room.

It is true, we have gone 100% non-smoking. We have taken every step to renevate our smoking rooms to non-smoking. We have changed the carpet, painted every wall, used special air filter machines and discarded all linens. We would like to apologize in advance for your unpleasant stay. We hope you give us the chance to prove our facility is smoke-free and we thank you for informing us of this situation.

My Husband and I absolutely loved our stay here! The chiropractic mattress was absolute HEAVEN! The room was gorgeous, from the decor to the cleanliness, I rate it 100%! I was sad to come home! We stayed on the third floor and yes you could smell some cigarette smoke from the smoking rooms but only in the hall. Our room was non smoking and it was at the end of the hall so maybe that is why we didn't hear any commotion at night. I was amazed at how affordable the hotel was. I was really nervous about staying there because it was our first time at the Microtel Inn and since it was so affordable I was worried about our experience. It was fabulous and I am spreading the world on how great it was. Breakfast was great, cereals/oatmeals, waffles, danishes, muffins, juices, fruit, coffee, hot chocolate, milk, it was just heaven for a 5 months pregnant woman. :) Serivce was excellent, very friendly staff. Looking forward to coming back!

We are very pleased to communicate to our staff on their performance especially when we are complimented and given a full percentage rating. Our matresses are indeed chiropractic approved and we are starting the process of becoming a 100% smoke-free hotel. Thank you for the very kind and encouraging words. We look forward to having you stay with us again!

If we had stayed one night only, this would have been a four star review. We stayed two though, and found out more than we wanted to about this hotel. The first night was super quiet. Room was so clean, bed was comfortable. Tiny room, but I guess that's why they have micro in their name, it wasn't an issue. Breakfast we good, not a lot of choice, but they have waffles, cereal and pastries, cranberry and orange juice and milk. Enough to make a decent breakfast.
Our room was on the third floor, room 329. It has a non smoking sign on the door, but make no mistake, this is a smoking floor. It was strong in the hall, but not bad once you get inside the room. I would have preferred to be on a floor that was totally non smoking but like I said, once we got in the room it was ok.
The biggest issue we have with this hotel, and the one that will keep us from ever staying at one again is NOISE. Our first night was quiet, probably because they were not full and we didn't have anyone across from us or on either side. The second night though, we had people on both sides and across the hall. Amount of sleep...NONE. We could actually hear the person in one of the rooms turning over in bed. And across the hall was a family with a very fussy toddler. It was like the baby was in the room with us, and he cried, screamed, squawled all night.. Absolutely NO SLEEP. Because of this, we would not stay at a Microtel again. They skimped big time on sound proofing. It's a shame because the rest was very nice. Staff and housekeeping was very nice and did a good job, but that doesn't make up for paper thin walls and lack of sleep.

We have been told by many that are rooms are rather small in size and that our smoking rooms on third floor brought out the smell in the hallway. Our staff is always ready to tackle new issues that our brought to our attention and will be delighted to know that their hard work is recognized. Our management team is always invitive to new ideas on how to improve our hotel to make it the most enjoyable for all of our guests. This situation will most definetly be directed their way. Thank You!

My husband and I pre-paid for a nonsmoking room and noted on the reservation that we would be arriving late since we left Milwaukee after work to drive to Rochester. When we arrived we were sent to a room on the third floor. As soon as we opened the door to the room it was obvious that it was not a non-smoking room since it reeked. I returned to the desk and asked for a nonsmoking room. The clerk insisted that the room was non-smoking. He said there were no other rooms available except the handicapped accessible room on the first floor which had been booked but the guests had not arrived. We were not willing to take the chance that the guest who needed the features of the room would arrive and find us in the room they needed so we spent the night in the reeking room with the window open as far as it would go. Again I spoke to the clerk in the morning and asked to speak to the managers, but the desk clerk said they were in a meeting. The third floor of this motel is a smoking floor. The lower two floors are non-smoking with signs posted on the doors. Apparently if the motel is full they just stick guests in a smoking room on the third floor and insist that it is not a smoking room despite all evidence to the contrary. Despite our very reasonable complaints, the staff did nothing to compensate for a nasty night.

Room Tip: Do not pre-pay so you are free to walk out of here

It is disturbing to see that your stay was far from pleasant. The most disturbing part of this review is the behavior of our staff. We thank you for bringing this matter to our attention, however it is very upsetting that this situation was not addressed from the moment it happened. Our sincere apologies go out to you.

Two mom's and two teenage girls in town for a volleyball tournament -- received great rate on a suite -- upon arrival we were offered 2 choices for the same price because something needed to be repaired (handicap suite, or 2 adjoining rooms with 2 beds/1 couch/ 2 baths) -- chose the latter -- enjoyed 2 great rooms and a wonderful free breakfast and great service!

We had a wonderful stay at Microtel Inn. The personnel were always helpful and friendly. We got just the basic room, one queen bed, small desk, window seat. For what it is, a place to sleep, it has a comfortable bed and pillows, very clean and well maintained. The heating/AC unit is very quiet and has a fan mode to keep the air circulating. This may seem strange but you are able to fully open the window for fresh air. The breakfast was fine with waffles, fruit, bagels, cereal. The shuttle to Mayo was always on time and easy to use, this is the first pickup on the route we always had a seat. On check out they have business cards to take that encourage you to write candid comments on "Trip Advisor". They obviously know the value to continue good service and comfortable accommdations. Stay here, I don't know how you would be disappointed unless you want a large room to walk around in, then stay in one of the suites with refrigerator and microwave

Room Tip: Rooms on front side quieter - but are the suites

Yes our one queen bedrooms are smaller than an average size room. Many guests have complimented on how efficient they are for the size where as some guests do prefer the larger room. It is great to hear such nice comments especially to know that people are spreading the word to friends about our hotel. Thank you!
