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

We were traveling cross country camping when a major storm followed us along interstate 80 raining out our campsite. We headed to the nearest town - Princeton. We were delighted with the friendly staff and clean, reasonable accommodations. The room was quiet and had the amenities we needed.

Very reasonable and almost really clean. The bathroom shower curtain was stained and dirty. It might have been wine. The hair dryer didn't work. The bed was horrible. The first room was only one queen and I wanted two. The AC was working in there, but when she put us in the 2nd with 2 queen beds, she had to... More

Great service and very nice clean rooms. Very quiet not like other motels where you hear outside or other room noise. Will definitely stay again when traveling through. Didn't stay for breakfast but dining area was very clean.

We had a very good expierence here. We hit a deer around midnight and our truck was disabled. State Police drove us to this hotel. It was clean and had everything we needed. Nice breakfast and very friendly desk clerk. Wish I had asked his name. Spent only about eight hours here but still all good. They seem to care.

We arrived rather late in the evening and were charged 70 some dollars. I thought this a bit expensive. Hallways smelled as if the guests in other rooms were cooking with strong spices. Not what I want to smell when I enter a business establishment to spend the night. Rooms were clean enough and beds were clean, although bedding was... More
