What I expect from lodging while traveling: a clean room, courteous staff, nice hot shower, good internet. This hotel met all of those criteria. A couple of minor points for the hotels consideration: the side door security lock was broken so one could enter without a key; not a problem for me but some people might worry. And secondly, someone... More

It was nice and quiet. Was unable to understand the guy at the front desk. In the morning I was taking my stuff out to my vehicle when I came back in I turned the other way not even thinking and he was like why are you not going through that door and points to the other side of the... More

Front desk staff was pleasant, helpful and polite. The room was clean and priced right. Wi-fi was OK, but was unable to stream video. The BIG drawback was that I was awoken SEVEN times by freight trains during the night. The train tracks were not wall shaking like the movie, but the horns blaring were loud enough to wake me.

I checked in for 2 beds since they were full on Kings. My husband walked in and said what's wrong? I said he doesn't want to honor my coupon, let's go. He yelled "wait, wait, wait... I give you room". Nice, clean, comfortable. Yes: I would stay again. We went to a breakfast diner for a change of pace and... More

this is a very clean well managed budget hotel. the manager is a extremely nice gentleman. across the street is Mcdonald's, Walmart, and a great bar/restaurant called Wise Guys. It is right off of I-80. If you're looking for a clean no frills hotel this is a great choice!

Awesome management and staff who made every effort to accommodate my special needs as a travel nurse who works night shift. This was my second assignment in the area and I also stayed here then as well. Recently updated some areas, great staff, convenient location with lots of surrounding restaurants and shopping. I booked all my remaining stays for my... More

Pretty ok place. Elevator is in a strange location but functions. Very quiet place, both inside and out. Parking is ok but just ok. The rooms are nice but small. The bathrooms are tight, but I am also a bigger guy. The staff is very friendly and helpful. It seems that they go out of the way to help you

Don't go there!!!!! First of all, the guy at the reception is so rude! We felt like we were disturbing him. We wanted to see a room and he made a very loud sigh with a not friendly attitude. After seeing the room, he asked us rudely if we were going to take it and we said yes but we... More

This Econo Lodge is very budget friendly and easy to find. The exterior is simple, but fairly well-kept. The halls smell like smoke, but our non-smoking room did not smell at all. The carpet, sheets - everything - was very clean. Bravo to the housekeepers! The rooms are not huge, but not uncomfortably small for our family of 4. Also,... More
