Room was an abomination. Carpet was ripped and stained, sink was falling apart, no shower liner so the room smelled like musty cloth, stains on the pillow cases, chair at the table was falling apart, and here is the topper....there was dried blood on the telephone. Seriously, I have pictures. My car broke down in this town, so I had... More

This motel is about average; it is clean, reasonably priced, easy to find off I-80, and there are some pretty good restaurants nearby. The clerk at reception was friendly, and we could use a coupon from the various coupon books that are available at truck stops and restaurants.

The staff is great to work with for a large group event. Our group recently had our annual gathering with more than 50 in attendance. The meeting room was perfect for our group and perfect set up for catering a meal. Our group also decided to grill out and were able to set up our own grill in the parking... More

Having been on the road for five weeks, our budget was stretched and we decided to risk a stay here. We concur with previous reviews regarding the perfume-y coverup of cigarette smoke that seems to be imbedded in the facility. It greeted us in the hallway and was present in the room as well. We opened the window and the... More

We checked in at 9:44 so it was too late to leave & find another place. The room was so perfumed as to be uninhabitable. The bed linens were permeated with this obnoxious odor. It seemed to come the worst from the AC unit so we had to actually turn it off even though the room was very hot. Even... More

Stayed at this Econo Lodge one night on my way west. The room was OK with a good bed, clean linens and a shower with hot water. My big complaint is the cigarette smoke in the halls. They were terrible. Price was fair for what you get. Would stay here again, but hope they do something about the hall smell.
