Verified Reviews of Microtel Inn & Suites

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Great Place for a Sports Team"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
Our basketball team stayed at this property and they were very accommodating to such a group. First the hotel was clean, updated, nice size room; the bathroom was small but that really wasn't a big deal. Each room had a refrigerator which was a nice plus, especially with such a nice rate. Continental breakfast was the same as other properties where we have stayed. We definitely would book this hotel again!
