This was a friendly and clean hotel. the room was comfortable and had a decent free breakfast.the price was fair & the people were nice. I like the HDTV and that pets are allowed. If we visit Alabama again,we will stay at Econo-lodge. We didn't stay long but enjoyed it. I wish I signed up for rewards program.

We heeded another reviewer's recommendation about staying away from the tavern on the premises but missed the other recommendation to stay on the back side away from the highway.
