“This Microtel is not up to par with others”

  , Chattanooga
We have stayed at many Microtels, never disappointed until last weekend. It's normally a nice place, cheap price and expected small room. Walking in, the exterior and entrance doors looked a little run down. Upon check in, I was told our room was the last queen bed (questionable) available. I inquired about the continental breakfast since the nook appeared small but was told there was an assortment of hot and cold items on the bar. The elevator took forever, which was odd considering only 3 levels, and it also reeked of some sort of perfume spray trying to cover up an odor. We were on the third, top, level which was great. Our room smelled like mildew, made even worse when the air was turned on. The flat panel tv and window that partially opened were nice bonuses. There were only 2 towels in the bathroom and one bar of soap, which was definitely not sufficient for 2 people staying 3 nights. We asked the owner/manager that was on our floor our first morning about swapping out towels and he told us to go to the front desk. We took our towels to the front desk and the attendant replenished our towels, but acted disgusted about our used towels and told us to take them back to our room. The continental "breakfast" consisted of loaves of bread, bagels, jelly, cream cheese, frosted flakes, mini donuts, mini muffins and rice krispies. This was fine except when I asked, I was told an assortment of hot and cold items and fruits. I would hardly call that an assortment. It was close to 9:30, when breakfast ended, and it was a disaster. I called the front desk a couple times to inquire about swapping towels, check out time, etc and no one ever answered. Our first morning, from around 7-8 there were doors constantly slamming, which appeared to be the storage room across from ours. The few times we left out the front door to walk around the city, the front desk attendant was out front smoking. I was a little concered about walking around without socks or shoes on. There were silverfish in the bathroom. We contemplated leaving after our first night but didn't want to get charged for two more nights stay. There were a couple good things: the location, the water pressure was very strong and got very hot and the bed slept pretty good. I would not stay there again nor recommend it to anyone unless there was a major renovation. Very disappointed overall.
