Stayed with a friend at this place. Staff was friendly but at checkout time the person behind desk is very rude. He chased a person down for a payment and in my opinion that was wrong because he was very loud and obnoxious about how much she owed. It doesn't matter if she has been staying there for a long...

When I think of an Econo Lodge, I have certain expectations and this location falls short. The building and rooms are old and in need of renovation. The cleanliness is questionable and everything smells like cigarette smoke. This hotel has many more long term residents than short stay hotel guests.

Very disappointed that this is a Choice Hotel. Sink and tub/shower where not clean. Bar soap build up on both sides of the faucet in the sink. I travel a lot for work and always use Choice Hotels whenever possible. I can plan on a clean room. Not so with this motel. Very dirty and yes there are a very... More

First off, they overbooked our family room. We had 10 people visiting Great America, Oct 5, 2013 and they left me a voice mail an hour before check in (mind you, I booked this on July 30, 2013 and called 1 week before to confirm everything was set). They were going to put us in separate rooms, which were filthy.... More

BEWARE... Rooms are disgusting, towels are stained, tub was gross, pillows were extremely thin, air conditioner leaked, and staff will charge you extra for anything you ask. GM is unwilling to return calls or emails. Also, this motel is run under a different name, Hollywood Inn Suites, along with Econo Lodge.

When I arrived, I was told that they were overbooked and they were going to "upgrade" me to a suite. It turned out that the suite was at a different hotel, the "Hollywood Hotel and Suites." When I arrived, there was no staff on site. I had to use an access card to get into the "hotel." The hallway was... More
