“NOT QUITE WHAT WE EXPECTED”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 May 2012

As others have said, we were very pleased with the cleanliness of the room and the hotel. We got a good rate. However, the shower had no water pressure and breakfast was lacking so much that we went to a restaurant for breakfast. The only thing offered was a choice of cereal or a roll. We were extremely disappointed in that. It couldn't even be considered a continental breakfast. We feel that when you figure in the cost of breakfast it takes away from the good rate.

Our breakfast here is, in fact, a basic continental breakfast. I'm not sure if this guest did not check thoroughly or simply expected a hot breakfast, but our breakfast consists of 3 types of cold cereal, a variety of oatmeal, fruit, muffins, 2 types of bagels, and a variety of spreads including peanut butter, jelly, cream cheese, and butter and margarine. We also provide coffee, milk, 2 types of juice, tea and hot cocoa. For a basic continental, we have a decent variety, which is more than adequate for breakfast.

We've stayed there 3 different times. Rooms and lobby were immaculate. Lacks some of the goodies like a pool & spa, but being by the Tollway, it oriented to the transient traveler.

Good breakfast, but no waffles. My wife and I both work in the hotel industry and, if anything, I'm super critical.

Great, well managed property, with helpful, courteous staff. Good place to stay while visiting Amish country.

Room Tip: We stayed in 2 Queen, N/S on 3rd floor, quiet and good elevator.

We were going to visit the area (Shipshewana,etc) for the weekend and wanted to stay somewhere that was nice, but not terribly overpriced. Guess what? We found it! This hotel had wonderfully clean rooms and bedding, a nice flat screen LG TV on the wall, a fridge and a microwave. The best part was, everything looked AND SMELLED clean!! We booked online and were not at all upset that we paid $60 a night, We did notice that there wasn't always someone immediately available at the front desk, but we guessed that was because the hotel wasn't terribly busy. We thought it was kind of humorous when we came in on Saturday night after dinner, and there WAS a young girl at the desk, but also a young guy, standing at the desk, who backed away from the desk when we walked in. Overall, we had a very nice experience there, did not take advantage of the "continental breakfast" that was offered, or the free long distance calls or free wi-fi that was also offered. Would definitely go back again if in the area!

Room Tip: we were on the top floor, so we didn't have any "overhead" noise.

This place is so clean and the people that work there are real nice. Beds are comfortable and the rooms look wonderful. Great place to stay for under $60.00 a night.

Room Tip: They do have smoking rooms.

The hotel is very nice and clean but be sure to book your hotel online because you will not get the best rates avaliable if you just walk in. I paid $51 a night thru hotels.com and they wanted $65 for the same room at the front desk and don't mind Sarah who spends more time worrying about her phone calls she keeps putting on hold in between trying to assist you and if you show up before 3pm prepare to pay for half a day. It is a nice hotel and they do have cheap rooms ad long ad you don't book there just be prepared for not so good customer service.

Rates often vary between the hotel and the internet. Sometimes you'll receive better rates from the hotel directly, while other times the better rate is available online. We never hide that fact, and often recommend that guests compare before booking. We would also advise that this is done prior to walking in the door, as anytime a reservation is booked online, it takes time to show up at the hotel. As for being charged a half day, that should be expected for anyone who wishes to check in more than 7 hours before check-in time.

I find Elkhart is be a good choice when looking to stay just outside Chicago (east side). Located on Interstate 80, and motel prices are reasonable. Chicago is and hour and a half west. Many motels compete for business, and most eateries are located on the "main drag". Microtel was the winning decision during my last two trips. The biggest factor was price, followed by this being a brand new motel.

The rooms are on the small side, but very, very nice. Everything in the room worked as designed. Wi-Fi worked well, and the new wide screen TV was enjoyable. For those familiar with Microtel, the room follows most (or all) of their motel designs with a full wall mirror at the head of the bed, and the small spare bed (if that's was you call it) located near the window. A microwave and refrigerator were useful. This years visit landed me a room near the elevator and Ice Machine. I did think twice about accepting the room, but I was happy I stayed, I didn't hear a thing! The soundproofing must be good, no elevator bongs, or ice chest fill-ups heard. The free breakfast was fine, simple...but fine. I had cereal and a bananna, not sure what else they had.

Thanks to the City of Elkharts road relocation program, getting to the motel is harder then it really looks. Once you exit I-80, drive staight across into the area of motels and Cracker Barrel (located next to Microtel). Although you see Microtel as soon as you get off the exit, you have to drive past it, waste about a quarter mile to loop around and return to the motel. I tried cutting through Cracker Barrels parking lot, no exit / extrance on the Microtel side. That was frusteruating, last year access to the motel was very simple, why do they change what works? As long as Microtel keeps their prices low, this will be my first choice in Elkhart.

The Microtel is conveniently located off of I80. The hotel and rooms are clean and well maintained. Good value for the price. The breakfast is about what you expect for this price point; however, the breakfast area is clean and food is good quality. We will stay here again.
