My husband had to take a 12-hour trip that ended in Alabama -- Parkway Inn (now known as Econo Lodge) was one of the cheapest hotels I could find and the more recent reviews were positive and Parkway's website and reviews on TripAdvisor indicated a recent remodeling.

The rooms are always clean...The staff is wonderful and always polite....I stay at this hotel every time I'm in the area. It's location is perfect by being close to everything without being in The middle of town. After only a couple visits the staff knows who I am and exactly what kind of room I need.

It was the most uncomfortable stay ever in a hotel. my neighbors were drunk and my phone wasn't connected to call the front. No fitted sheets, microwave, or refrigerator- I guess you get what u pay for. But if you happen to pull up to your room and see a grill- please change rooms, I don't want you to have... More

Hair on the sheets (do they put clean ones on), mold growing around shower mat do I need to say more!!! One of the towels in bathroom had holes in it. The one cup they have in room had brown stuff on plastic so I didn't even use it.
