It looks like they've redone the outside of the building, but the inside really needs work. Our room really needed a thorough cleaning & updating! The smoke alarm on the wall was so full of dust, I doubt it would even work! The walls desperately need a paint job & the bed was very hard to sleep on. Too firm!... More

I enjoyed my stay at this Econo Lodge. I have been to many Choice properties and usually the Econo Lodges don't have the nicest rooms... this one did. The beds were newer and the room decor also looked like it was recently updated. It was clean and I got a good night sleep. The only thing to watch out for... More

The most confrontational manager I've ever met. So incredibly rude that we would have left if we had the energy. The room was not very clean, most of the linens and towels were stained, the train behind sounds like it's in your room, the shower turns into a bath because it doesn't drain, seems like the construction has come to...

When I spoke to the owners about a problem with theft in the room of a minor item, they called me a liar, and proceeded to yell and berate me. Told me that they didn't have time for this and I was free to call the police. I have never been treated this way at any hotel and was astonished... More

The front of the hotel is under construction. There was really no place to park except on the street. The clerk was friendly. Went to room real quick to turn on AC so room could cool while we went yo eat dinner. It was a joke, it's placed above bathroom sink with duct tape all around it. When we came... More
