After staying at 3 in the past 3 weeks (I'm writing this sitting at the desk in one right now) we will stay in one whenever possible in the future.
We also learned that they have received awards for the past 7 years in customer satisfaction for budget hotels. The only thing budget about Microtel, in our opinion, is the price. Super affordable and always clean. We just joined the Micropass program which allows us to get a free night stay after 9 stays.
Only minor complaint. If you're going to have a free continental breakfast make it full enough to be enjoyable. From one site to the next they aren't consistent in what is served. But that's minor considering the price.
Our room last night in Kentucky was $49 and tonight in Maryland (near Baltimore) it's $64 and we have 2 queen size beds in the room.
Anyway, if you haven't tried them...give it a try and tell them Robin & Tony sent you. LOL. That won't do you a bit of good, but that's funny I don't care who you are.
Robin wanted me to add, free high-speed internet, free local AND long distance phone calls, and it's a euro-style hotel if you know what that means.
