The location of this hotel is perfect for ease of finding it and most every restaurant you would want is within 2 or 3 miles. The rooms are nicely appointed and are clean. The towels in this Econo Lodge are soft and fluffy. There are pillows on each very comfortable bed that vary in size and firmness - - can... More

On my trip to WI my son and I stopped here for one night. I found a roach in the bathroom! I almost packed up and left immediately but we were tired. I refused to make coffee or eat at their breakfast knowing they had roaches.

We were late trying to book in Alachua, FL for a work trip and since I use Choice Hotels most of the time, we booked here. It's an older property, but clean and the room we had was better than I expected. Bedding was comfortable, bathroom was a bit dated but clean and overall it was a good stay for... More

We needed a last minute room to accommodate 5 people so we had to stay here. It definitely is a motel not a hotel. The rooms were clean and staff was friendly however it was just not a comfy hotel room. The outdated exterior matched the outdated mauve carpet. The beds did have nice pillows and clean white sheets, however... More

Overnight stop. Great location (i.e. walkable to only places open on Christmas like Waffle House or iHop) friendly staff, clean comfortable room, great price, decent breakfast. Would stay there again.

I am rating it four out of five in relation to all other interstate exit motels I have stayed in. It was very clean and reasonably priced. The beds were unusually comfortable for a interstate exit motel. I was awakened during the night a couple of times because a road crew was working on the access road next to the... More

An older, well maintained hotel with prime location to interstate and multiple restaurant options. Room was quiet, clean and spacious,comfy beds,too. Rooms on back side are convenient to a nice grassy area for dogs to enjoy. Friendly staff, too,,,,give this serious consideration despite the age of this hotel.

About $20/ night cheaper but vast difference in cleanliness, modernization and attitude. We were greeted by desk person, Stephanie.
