Wow! We were greeted by a very friendly staff (even though they were slammed because of the Spring Break crowd) upon arrival and our room was lovely! I was leery of reserving with Microtel as several years ago, my reservation (that had been paid
months in advance) was given away after my plane was late--which meant I had nowhere to stay at 1:00 in the morning! However, this stay made up for that awful night and I will be sure to check them out in the future. The cost was very reasonable for a nice nights stay on the way to the mountains.
Pros: Convenient location right off of I-25. Rooms were very clean, bed was very comfortable. Lights in the very white bathroom are bright and a little stark for 12:30am. Walls to hallway are a little thin for those of us who don't wake up at 5am
and just got to bed at 1am.Checked in at 12:30pm after driving for many hours. Two things. Asked clerk [...]about breakfast to which he replied the hours are posted on the wall then tells me what time. I don't need snide little remarks at 12:30. I'm tired. It took more time for him to say that than just telling me. Then, got key to room & SPECIFICALLY asked him if it would work at the end door to which he said yes. After pulling around to the back of the hotel & facing the crazy wind, the key did not work. I walked all the way back around & told him, to which he replied that I could have used the other door (which, btw, is right across from the entry). Kind of missed the point. No apology, nothing. I told him I specifically asked about the key working in the end door, and he had nothing to say. Not sure I'll go back JUST based on this but would still recommend as long as you use one of the SIDE entrances or it's nice outside so you don't mind the walk to the front door when the key doesn't work after you verify that it will. Grrr.
The room, linens, and bathroom were extremely clean, and the bed was possibly the most comfortable hotel bed I've slept in. The hallways are a little too transparent for sound, but there weren't many general disturbances so it was a god night's
rest. Breakfast is pretty basic.
The desk clerk, [...], was GREAT. I had requested a downstairs handicapped room but I was put on the second floor. He went to work without the usual "sorry there isn't anything I can do" and had my room changed in a few minutes. He was very
friendly and he was just a great people person. The breakfast the next morning was very good. Parking was easy and it was in a handy location. The stay was definitly a "THUMBS Up" Oh Ya the rooms were bright, clean and comfortable.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Short drive from hotel
K-Bobs steak house was just a short drive. It was very good.
