Late night couldn't get into the bathroom because the door wouldn't open. The place is noisy - smelly - and the manager lied to me saying this is our last room -- only to see another person get another "last room" after me! I've seen worse motels -- this one is "sleepable" once you fall sleep.

My wife wanted EconoLodge but I wanted a non chain place. MISTAKE! The bed was comfy. And the nice Chinese lady at the desk was cheerful and her little dog, Tutu was very cute. And that's it for the good points. Our room, we were told, had just been cleaned by the maid. I want her job since she gets... More
