Yes, I decided to give the Microtel chain another chance. While this one was far better than my last experience, there were still problems.
First of all, be aware this is a nicely situated property with reasonable rates located quite a distance from the main drag (US-250) in Sandusky. It rates are reasonable and the exterior appears well kept.
My first dose of reality came in the filth of the carpet in our room, as it appeared to have have not been vacuumed once before or during our stay. Adding to the cleanliness problems was the filth and trash in the lights right above our beds, the dust on many surfaces, and trash left in the wardrobe by a previous occupant.
From a maintenance aspect, we were always frustrated by the non-operation of the lock on our room door and a "hot tub" which might be more suitably used in chilling a bottle of nice wine. But speaking of chilling, the ice machine appeared to work very well.
There is constant loud noise from a busy train track almost next to the property. Since there is a crossing here the train horns can be experienced almost 24/7. If that noise does not keep you awake, then the children bouncing off the floor above at all hours certainly will.
As I said, you get what you pay for. If you are willing to deal with any of the situations I described, then certainly spend your hard-earned dollars on this below-average property where you will be serenaded by diesel horns throughout the long night!
