This property is at least "average" if only older, low-budget motels are considered. There are hundreds of these inexpensively-built and now aging properties around the country. This one has been refurbished in the last few years, and though maintenance is struggling to keep up with its deteriorating physical plant, it provides an average experience for its class.

Stayed here during ice storm. Was skeptical, because Econo Lodge doesn't have a good reputation, but they have come a long way. Very nice lady at check-in and checkout. I do think the price was raised at this time, but I am not for sure. We just needed a place to stay for warmth. We were pleasantly surprised! Rooms clean,... More

I had the pleasure of being checked in by the owner and his wife. They were both friendly and the check in was speedy. The room was nice and spacious. We loved the decor. As someone who works in the hotel business good service and a clean room went a long way in my boo.

we got bit, I had at least 8 red bites on me. I knew it was too good to be true, my luck ran out on the 'sweet deal and great hotel'. We went back down the road to the Quality Inn, the only thing there that bites is the mean girl that works the lounge at night.

You will enjoy the service and overall experience of this hotel. Clean rooms, good service and a relative fair price for the area during Masters Week.

This hotel could be decent, but it is very run down and the staff is apathetic. We've stayed 3 times in order to visit our college student down the road and every room has issues, such as plumbing (running, ill flushing toilets) and walls badly in need of painting, garbage cans never being emptied and trash not picked up around...
