I have been thinking the same thing. I stay at Marriotts and Courtyards only when I have to since the Internet is not free and neither is the breakfast. I always stay at a Fairfield Inn where I can get the Internet and Continental breakfast for FREE; saving about $25 per day.
The criteria for me is clean sheets, a strong shower, sinks that drain, good A/C and Heat; and cable TV along with the Internet and breakfast. I do not care about the Picasso's hanging on the wall and do not want to pay for it
