I was double charged for the room. The owner called me and said it was because another guest had the exact same AMEX number as I did. Of course, we all know that is not true. The air conditioner was also louder than my diesel pickup but not as cold. I did get my overcharge refunded at least.

You get what you pay for

We were disappointed. The room was clean but badly in need of updates. It smelled bad. I was afraid I was going to fall through the bottom of the shower, the water pressure was not strong and drying off with the bath towels felt like drying off with hand towels. One of our washcloths had a long thick black hair on it. Overall just not a great place but we wanted someplace inexpensive so we got what we paid for I guess.

It seemed like Expedia was more the problem.

It took a half an hour to check in. I had to forward my e-mail from Expedia so I'm not sure who's fault that was but it was annoying. I had a semi bad experience with a Budget Host Inn in Michigan where they assumed we would be loud troublemakers. I believe that was another Expedia booking but it was the same thing at this location. While I was by myself I was lectured about not making noise. Yet the guy that checked me in called me early in the morning to ask if I wanted coffee when the explanation for the noise lecture what a good night rest doctrine. I don't drink coffee and I just wanted to sleep. I'm not sure what Expedia's deal is but these would be things that would be good to know when booking.
