Booked thru priceline. Travelling with my elderly mom. Refused 2 separate beds unless more money is dished out. Horrible layout of room. Cupboard door really close to the bed. Will NEVER stay here!! Dark & dinghy.

Don't let this one slip past you with all of the main choices on the street.. The Econo lodge was the best rate in the area, after we applied our caa/aaa discount, and the rooms were above satisfactory. When we checked out, staff was very helpful in helping us to print off some information we needed. Great breakfast and coffee... More

The price was reasonable. It include free wifi with a good signal. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Parking was convenient. The included breakfast was good with hot waffles, fruit, cerial toast, coffee etc. Facilities seemed new and clean. This is the best motel of this chain that we have used.

This is our second stay at this hotel, it is clean, affordable, free wi-fi and free breakfast including waffles, yogurts, fruits, cereals. The staff is friendly and the rates are good for the occasional stays on your way to and from visiting family and friends.

I am very surprised that this hotel is an Econo Lodge, I have stayed in Comfort Inn hotels that are far worse than this one. This Econo Lodge doesn't look like much from the outside, but it sure is nice inside. Room was clean, comfortable and modernized. One thing I didn't like is that the TV, despite having a digital...

The price is right. We stayed 2 separate times. As other reviews state- its very basic, however it's clean and safe. The bed wasn't a brick (which you get lots with non-updated hotels), we got a good nights sleep both nights we stayed. The staff was fine with us and greeted us and our dog very kindly.

On a road trip so I hadn't booked a place to stay since I wasn't sure how far I'd get. A few hotels I had considered earlier were already booked so I wasn't sure what would happen. I showed up in the lobby and asked if there were any rooms still available. Thankfully there was and as I had read... More

Very basic motel where the reception staff is flat and not helpful.... sometimes it makes me wonder why these people are in "customer care" business. The rooms are basic and quite old. The bathroom are minuscule especially for the rooms catering for familiea. However I did appreciate the guest laundry facility on site. I do not recommend this hotel for... More

It was cheaper than most, and therefore it not up there. Room was OK, bed was OK, clean, working shower, parking close, no pool.. was quiet. Fella was nice. So you get what you pay for.. No Frills here.. Breakfast was on the run, did have hard boiled eggs & yoghurt, but no seating..

Hotel was dated but everything worked as it should. Bed was clean and it wasn't too loud, the staff were nice and breakfast was included. We were just passing through and it did the trick! Wouldn't want to stay here for more than a couple of days but if you're only passing through its a great option!
