The hotel is located in a nice and quite neighborhood. And there are great hiking trails just nearby for those people who like to be in the nature and exercise, and I did that everyday. I stayed with my small pet, very well behaved PUG in one of their King size bed suites for 15 days in my first trip... More

This motel was still in the process of being renovated when we stayed, but it was not intrusive. The room was comfortable and large and the shower was impeccably clean. Its hard to gauge the breakfast since the office was in temporary quarters, though it looked like a former restaurant attached to the property was also being redone. Being right... More

My room was recently renovated - new and good quality A/C, and TV, very comfie king-sized bed, nice shower, small safe, and adequate closet and shelf space.... More

This was our first stay at an Econo Lodge. This facility has been newly renovated and the room was probably the smallest we have encountered but it was ok . The only motel where our rental was parked in a garage. Convienient location to GG Bridge,, good value. Basic breakfast, no eating area. Ok if stopping for i night
