the room was very clean, w/ fridge (no microwave but no problems using the one down in the lobby). loved that it was 100% smoke-free!
however, one awful point / flaw: as a new chevy volt owner, i chose this hotel because they have a charging station right outside the front door...which is great! however, the cost to use the charging station is way, WAY too high. at $0.49 / kWh, it cost me a little under $7 to fully charge my volt from empty to full. this gets me the electric mileage range of about a gallon of gas (35-40 miles)...in other words, using this charging station would equate to about $7 / gallon gas. needless to say, for the rest of the trip i used the free charging station in downtown harrisonburg while shopping / eating.
if the manager or anyone at microtel is reading this, please consider lowering the price on your charging station. if it would have even been in the same neighborhood as the price of gas, this would have been a 4-star review, maybe 5-stars. save us electric guys some money (which it looked like you were trying to do, given that you're the only hotel in the area with a charging station) and it would most certainly be 5-stars.
everything else about the place was great, i just can't get over the cost of the charging station...
