“Another great stay!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 November 2013

This is the second time my friend and I have stayed at this Microtel. The rooms are huge with a fridge and microwave. The beds are super comfortable and the hotel itself is clean and well taken care of. The service is awesome, the staff super friendly and the breakfast has a nice mix of things to choose from. We also like that its only 10 min from Watertown for shopping and there is some fast food places right next door to the hotel and Walmart across the road. We will definitely stay here again!

I wasn't expecting much from this hotel. It was waaay cheaper than other Watertown hotels (though a little further out than Watertown.. about a 10-minute drive away), so I thought it would be a cheap run-down place. But it was surprisingly nice! We had a 1-queen room booked, but the lady at the front desk put us in a room with 2-queens since they had one available and we were three people. When we got to the room, it was huge! We were surprised at how big it was.. and the beds were very comfortable. We got an excellent night sleep and it was very quiet. The bathroom could use some updating, but for the price we paid, we feel like we got more than our money's worth. Especially considering the free breakfast that is also included. It was a great stay for our shopping weekend!

Microtels usually provide affordable accommodations with a higher degree of quality than most budget motels, but the recent trend seems to say otherwise. While the prices have stayed competitive, the quality has decreased. This particular stay was our second at a Microtel this year, and it is quite obvious that each location reflects identical wear and tear, attributed to negligence. We stay in at least one Microtel every year, and I can see the consistent decline over the span of 3-4 years now. The stench from the smoking rooms (usually confined to one corridor on the 2nd floor - Microtel's approach to isolate the area), is basically unbearable to the non-smoker. You will not smell it strongly in the non-smoking rooms themselves, or anywhere downstairs, but the odor is definitely present, probably because the doors to the rooms are wide open to the smelly corridors for a while during daily cleaning . As soon as you open the door, (again, 2nd floor) the smell slaps you in the face in the hallway. It's overwhelming. Generally speaking, the bathrooms are falling into disrepair; the carpets, (especially in the hallways) are in need of replacement, painting and wall repairs need to be done everywhere, and most of all, the cleaning and maintenance quality is absent. On our first night, we found the bed linens to be unchanged from the previous guests, and the bathrooms to be uncleaned as well. This is becoming the norm at Microtels nowadays. Also, it appears that our room underwent some light remodel in the recent past, but the workmanship lacks quality - surely an attempt at cutting corners toward keeping prices low with cheap, uncaring labor.

Compromises come with a price. Though the place was very busy, you can slowly see the differences in the clientele, and the move away from a family atmosphere. Perhaps this is exactly their intention, and their appeal to a different market in the future. Of course, this is their prerogative, and that is fine, but we will be looking for a different motel for now on as they undergo their metamorphosis. What a shame, because I have found these motels to be very satisfactory for us for the last ten years or so. The complimentary continental breakfasts are adequate; the A/C's always work well; the beds are comfortable; the ice-makers work; the security seems to be ok, and the prices are reasonable. For the price, it's still a good deal, but with the diminished maintenance and cleaning, it's only a matter of time before things really catch up to them, and to when total renovation must take place. We completely understand that Microtels are not intended to be of the five star variety, so our expectations for them over the years have been simply a good clean room with some necessary amenities for a good price. The only reason I rate this stay as high as average is because of the reasonable prices. Otherwise, I would rate it as poor. If you can deal with the lack of cleanliness and maintenance, and have never seen what Microtel used to be, then this place provides a good value. For us, as we were accustomed to Microtel's history of clean rooms, etc. the time has come to move on from this chain of Inns, as we no longer choose to compromise cleanliness. A clean room should always be affordable. Maybe someday we will try it again, but not for years as I will be reading the comments and keeping up with the ratings before returning. In my opinion, Microtel will have to depend upon new customers to stay afloat, because I cannot see many repeat customers over time.

Room Tip: If you're a non-smoker, and sensitive to the odor, stick to the first floor to which there are n...

We stayed here for a few nights while on vacation. Being one of the least expensive hotels we looked at, we were not expecting much, but found the hotel to be a pleasant surprise. The room was nice, clean, and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and courteous to us during our stay and the breakfast was very good. We have absolutely no complaints about this hotel and would definitely stay here again.
