We stayed at the Econ lodge by the Speice center. We tried to get an early check in an they would not allow it. We were told to come back after 3. We came back at around 5:30 an our room was still not ready. The sink in the bathroom would not drain so I had to put a lid... More

The hotel smelled bad. Our room had hair in the shower and the sheets looked dirty. Could definitely use a good cleaning. The continental breakfast was a huge disappointment! There wasn't much besides cereal. We will not be returning to this hotel.

I cannot begin to tell you how upset and disappointed we are. We were scheduled to stay two days, but we are currently searching for another hotel for our second night. My husband and I are traveling with our toddler visiting family for the weekend. Our search criteria had 3 requirements: breakfast, internet, and indoor pool. Upon check-in we were... More

My grands passed away and we drove all the way from Texas -- and was told that the room was not available, after a bit of investigating, the room was booked with a different name. ( as i explained to the agent, the trip advisor app pulls out name information from your profile ) Agent was a bit snippy and... More

We were going back for a graduation and chose this hotel because of our good luck with another Econo Lodge. This one was not the same. Even though it said it was newly remodeled, things did not work properly. Several outlets in the room did not have power. We also had difficulty with the lock on the door, so we... More

First time at this hotel. It was very clean and fresh. Excellent room for a great price. The front desk staff was very friendly and courteous. The breakfast was OK - nothing to rave about, but fresh. The fireplace in the middle of the breakfast room is a nice touch. Very cozy. The indoor pool was very good - no... More

We picked this room because we were driving and only needed a place to take a shower and sleep before hitting the road the next morning. Shower mechanism was broken as well as the drainage apparatus in the tub. Kinda weird. The room also had some water damage by the window on the ceiling and sill, looking like big rusty... More

Chose this hotel because it was a former Lee's Inn. Facility was still pleasant in design but the hotel is showing age. Complimentary breakfast was thinner than any other hotel I've encountered of late, consisting of donuts, donut holes, some bagels and some cereal. Not even a banana. Room layout was weak: no power outlets at desk, and the entry... More

This hotel is a remodeled Lee's Inn. It will be one of the nicest Econo Lodges you'll stay in. Choice often buys smaller chains and remodels them into what they can. This Econo Lodge has large and clean rooms, a very nice pool, refrigerator and microwave. I suggest a suite as they are only a few dollars more. There are... More

The room was large and comfortable. It would be perfect if it had a mini fridge and microwave oven. The bedding looked new and the room and the hotel had been remodeled. The bathroom was clean. The internet connection was fast and reliable. Breakfast was minimalistic (just the basic) and coffee was not good. But for the price, we thought... More
