Where to begin?! The desk staff personnel were surly, unfriendly and inhospitable. Despite making reservations months in advance for first floor rooms for elderly travelers in our party, we were assigned two second floor rooms. The hotel smelled musty, despite housekeeping staff spraying "Fabreeze" type air freshener constantly. Most of the second floor smelled like an ash tray---even the nonsmoking rooms and hallways. The shower head in one room was defective, seemingly quite old and although maintenance staff responded to our request to see if the flow could be improved, they did not/could not improve the "trickling" flow from the shower head. The continental breakfast area is woefully small, about 6 X 6 feet with one 24 inch round table and 4 chairs, to accommodate guests in the hotel's 78 rooms. Only 2 people could access the coffee/breakfast area at one time as it is small and crammed into a corner of the L-shaped lobby.The coffee was good despite the packets of powdered creamer. The "breakfast" consisted of toast and so-so danish. Perhaps they're hoping guests will skip breakfast entirely so that they can skimp even more. The management seems to be putting as little effort as possible into maintaining the facility and encouraging repeat customers. They won't have to worry about that with my family! If you want nice, reasonably priced accommodations in Morgantown, go with the Best Western Mountaineer Inn. We've always been VERY happy at that hotel. I should also add that I am not a "hotel snob" who only stays at four-star hotels and I'm simply "looking down" at this discount chain. Past visits to Morgantown have found the Econolodge Coliseum to be a much better experience that the Econolodge Morgantown and it's in a much more convenient location if you want to be close to WVU. Happy travels!!
