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

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

Recently remodeled. New rugs, new paint job. Comfortable beds. No flat screen TV, but large screen was fine. Has a small indoor pool (no hot tub). Fast and free Internet. Adequate free breakfast. Good price with senior discount. Close to several places to eat. We'd certainly recommend this for the budget minded - or for anyone for that matter.

We had to leave on our trip early because of weather issues, so this was a last minute booking. Pleasantly surprised with the room. Very clean and nice. 2nd shift Desk staff woman not so much. Told her we had reservations and she started to look up our reservation and apparently had computers problems. She just stood there and stared... More

The attendant at the front desk was very nice.The area was not the greatest but it was one of the more decent lodges in the area.It looked like they were remodeling but there was absolutely no perks not even a ice machine or coffee pot.

Very reasonable rates, we booked through Expedia.com, very clean rooms, pool was a little cool but very clean and staff was very friendly and helpful. Hotel was quiet, beds were comfortable and my children fell fast asleep. I would book this hotel for our family again

I was pleased with the lobby and my room. I had my doubts but the room was clean. And that's number one on my list! The rooms need an upgrade. My only complaint is that there were no king rooms available, when I was told differently on the phone.
