My room was clean and the location was excellent. The staff were polite, friendly, and honest. I checked out early, having paid in advance for another night. When I asked for confirmation that my card would be re-credited, the clerk could not give it to me because of some glitch with the machine No worries. My card was re-credited right... More

This Econo Lodge was sufficient for an overnight stay while traveling. The room was clean. Check-in was easy with our reservation made through Choice Hotels. The lobby did have a heavy smell of spicy cooking odors when I walked in. The clerk was friendly and efficient. We did not partake of the breakfast since it was not available until 7... More

The rooms are clean with flat screen TV's and modern bathrooms. The last room I stayed in had a great king bed with new linens. I slept like a baby. The wifi is pretty fast and... More

Perfect place for a quick overnite. Much nicer inside rooms than outside of hotel would lead you to expect. Would definitely stay here again if travels put us here again. Our king room has been completely updated. Non-smoking room no smell of cigarettes. Very friendly en even with midnight check in.

Friends booked it this time and as others have stated this location has changed names several times. This stay was A LOT better than a few years back. This time, would stay again. Nothing special, it is as the price would suggest a low frills motel but the room had recently been renovated so sheets, towels, decor all fresh and... More

Stayed for 5 days. Upon seeing the place I was a bit taken aback. Sign not really visible. Check-in was smooth. Our room was on the second floor, no elevator, but we had a ton of stuff to lug up and down. The paint on the building was minimal. Pool was out of service. Plus side... the room was clean,... More

First, please let me acknowledge that the staff was generally friendly and courteous. The room, however was not a good value for the price charged. We opened the door (blazened with a non-smoking symbol) to be knocked down by the odor of stale cigarette smoke. The rooms have clearly been remodeled in some aspects but the odor is deeply saturated... More

I had read the reviews for this hotel on Tripadvisor and I really wanted to be able to give it a good review. I don't consider myself a "hotel snob," but I do require cleanliness in order to give a good review. I'll start with the positives: When I checked in the owners were super nice and friendly. They gave... More
