Good hotel to sleep a night during long travel

Hotel is recently renovated, so looks comparatively clean. But it looks like cheap hotel. Breakfast is minimally OK, Internet surprisingly good. May various restaurants nearby. Very close to I-10, but you will not hear it's noise.

Try a different hotel (Hot water only and ants)

Let us start off my staying we aren't sure what hotel this is - there were signed and logos for two different chains (Econo and Microtel).... We could have stayed in a cheaper motel but opted for a single room with double beds to spend more family time. What we got was an ant infestation, no cold water, and a staff that cursed in front of customers. I would not recommend this hotel, there are others out there for similar rates that don't have all these problems. Basically we needed a place to crash for the night and expected nothing special...when we asked the hotel staff to fix the issues nothing was done. In fact, the staff frequently used inappropriate language while guests were standing right in front of them. Here were our main issues: There was no cold water in the bathroom (the fixture was broken)...can you imagine trying to brush your teeth with steaming hot water? There were ants everywhere. Bugs are bad enough but waking up to things moving around on your comb, clothes and shoes was certainly no fun. Horrible breakfast. We get that a free breakfast isn't supposed to be lavish...but there was simply nothing there. No fruits, no pastries, stale cereal, and coffee that was full of grinds. Lastly - the upsides: We got what we reserved, while it took some time to get the room ready, there were no hiccups in the reservation. There was a good wifi connection nearly everywhere. There was enough parking and the location was very convenient. Right across the street was a pair of fast food and gas stations. It was also very close to the freeway entrance! Hope this helps, and we hope the management will make some changes for the better too!

Great overnight stay

Staff was very friendly. Our first room had not been cleaned. Had no problem getting another room. The laundry staff gave us fresh towels right out of the dryer. Found out a storm had come through that morning and knocked out power so they were running behind. The room air conditioner wasn't very cold but kept the room cool enough to sleep.The breakfast was ok just not a lot of variety.

Don't stay here

No sleep for two nights due to excessive noise and partying. I'm glad someone was having fun. BUT I paid for a decent night's rest and I didn't get it here.

Unimpressed by staff

The hotel is advertised as having high speed internet. This was not the case... When I asked what could be done about it, maybe getting my room changed or getting refunded for the remaining nights of my reservation I was treated without respect. I was told that I was getting a rate too good for the room I was staying in and that I should just deal with my problems alone. ( they were upset I got the room off of cheapt! what a joke ) I believe I was dealing with the owner of the Inn. I called cheapt and had them cancel the rest of the reservation. I booked the remaining nights of my trip by the red roof inn across the road and had a pleasant stay with nice staff and working high speed internet. I do not recommend Microtel to any traveler.
