I usually stay in low end motels like Motel 6 or Red Roof Inn, but decided to splurge this time. Unfortunately, I was disappointed and in the end wished I had saved nearly 50% by staying in one of those places again.
The problems may have been with my personal preferences -- I understand many people might prefer the conditions that I was unsatisfied with. My main issue was with the temperature regulation in the room and the thin blanket on the bed. When I sleep, I prefer a cool room and a warm bed. (At home, I turn the thermostat down to 58 degrees at night, but I sleep under a warm down duvet.) Unfortunately, it was a cold night and the blanket on the bed was very thin (and made of a synthetic material that felt like a thin sheet of foam rubber), so the only way to keep warm was to turn up the heating unit. This made the air in the room dry, and soon it became too warm, so I turned it back down, but since the blanket was so thin, the room was thin too cold. I hardly slept at all because I had to keep getting up to change the thermostat. What made this problem worse was that I was traveling with my long-haired dog (kudos, though, to Ramada Inn for allowing her to stay for no extra charge), and she quickly got too warm when I turned up the heat and would start panting and want to go outside. I probably could have asked for another blanket, but it was late, I wasn't sure just one would do the trick, and I thought the hotel staff might have refused to give me more than one.
Add to that a small, hard pillow that caused me to get a crick in my neck, and it made for a miserable night. If I were to consider staying at this location again, I would be sure to take my own pillow and ask for an extra blanket or two. Actually, I would probably take my own blanket, too, because I just don't like the feel of synthetic fibers.
