Okay, I was tired after a long drive. I disputed the dog policy, saying that additional charges hadn't been mentioned when I booked the hotel. The manager got very angry, saying that all hotels charged for dogs and that the charges were mentioned on the Econo-lodge website (both untrue). I mentioned that I would post a review about this on... More

We needed a place to pull over for the night and spotted this Econo Lodge right off I-90. I was pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness of the hotel and the very affordable rate. The proprietor was very friendly and helpful, and even went so far as to call us after we left because we had forgotten an item in our... More

This is an old hotel that didn't smell musty but definitely had wear and tear in the room I stayed in. Bed and pillows were comfortable, price was right and was very quiet. No blow dryer in bathroom and no alarm clock. Most people use their cell phones but it is nice to tell the time when you wake up... More

This motel is great! It's clean and affordable. The front desk was extremely friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay here again. Don't miss this motel! We almost did. We are so glad we found it. It's a little bit out of the city but only mins away. I highly recommend it!

I usually stay at budget hotels at least 20 times a year.. My stay at this hotel was my best such experience. The room and lobby areas were extremely clean, and everything in the room operated properly and was in excellent condition. The staff was very attentive and enthusiastic. My thanks for a pleasant stay.

We stayed 4 nights at this lodge--part of a 4-week trip. It was an excellent choice. In our years of travel, this was one of thr cleanest, well-kept Econo Lodges we have ever stayed in. Also, very quiet. The managers were so friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this for an overnight or extended stay. Excellent value also. The... More

This was a terrible hotel. They could not give the AARP discount because "our machine is broken". The hallway smelled of urine and stall smoke. Beds were extremely uncomfortable. Room was not very clean. The only bright spot was the breakfast, it was nice. The clerk told us that we had to sit in the breakfast area and could not... More

During our cross country trip with 2 dogs and a baby, I had made reservations at this Econo Lodge because of the price and decent reviews. Driving up the property is kind of in the middle of a bunch of abandoned looking buildings, and the exterior is a little run down. However, once we walked in to the hotel I... More
