Found the Microtel Inn in the traveler's coupon book. I had a rate of $59/night in Room 121. The hotel is easy to find just off the exit and up the hill. There is plenty of parking and access in and out is easy. It is convenient to several fast food and chain restaurants. I would not have usually stayed in this hotel chain though was surprised it was as nice as it is.The desk clerk was friendly and welcoming. He pointed me to a very high end steak place for dinner where steak entres started at $20+. Drive north to the next exit and get the chain restaurant steak places for less. The hotels are a step up with a larger variety of better restaurants also.
The room was simple. Double queen beds, wall mounted night table between. A refrigerator, microwave, coffee set were in the room. Flat panel TV with numerous cable channels. Free WiFi access. Window seat with cushion and pill back rest. The wall behind the bed is covered in blue tinted mirrors. My first impression - great place to bring your 'date' for an evening of intimate frolicking! - There, I said it.
Continental Breakfast included cereals, bagels, pastry, biscuit, gravy, juices, coffee. I'm a coffee snob yet the drip coffee made here was very good. Not the usual burnt flavor. Good job staff!
Upon check-in, read the paperwork you sign. There is a fee+tax charge for the "safe use". Have it taken off your bill when you check out.
Images on the Microtel website are fairly accurate with minor differences.
