We did not intend to stay at this motel. This was an emergency stop because of icy roads. Using our GPS and IPhones we found this Econo Lodge. We called and were told they had space. We got off the road. I have read the reviews of this motel and I think they do not do it justice. Yes it... More

We stayed at this hotel for one night to attend a family gathering the next morning. When we first pulled into the parking lot it was a little scary looking. As soon as we walked into the room the musty/moldy smell made me walk right back out. It was very over powering. Other that that the room was clean. The... More

I'm giving it 4. Its a basic motel, but It was clean. My wife always smells the sheets and they smelled freshly washed. The bathroom wash clean and no bugs or mold. The bed was good enough for my sore back after 720 miles of driving. I slept like a baby. The sports bar there had been closed for a... More

If you are looking for a very basic hotel - absolutely no frills - but a bed to sleep in, a good hot shower, and a cup of coffee in the morning, this will work. Room was exceptionally clean, desk clerk (owner?) courteous. No problem with bugs (well, it is winter I guess) or smells as mentioned in other reviews.... More

I developed water blisters and swelling around my mouth after sleeping on pillowcases that reeked of what seemed to be bleach. I contact Econo Lodge corporate and was told this was a franchise and they would contact me. It's been a month, and they continue to ignore my complaint. At the very least, I would like an apology for having... More

We arrived after the early (4 PM) cancellation time, found the room to be dank and musty-smelling. Told desk clerk we couldn't stay for health reasons (asthma). Asked him for refund. He refused. Contacted EconoLodge corporate. After going through procedure in which manager offered only 30% discount on our next stay (ha, ha, ha), corporate sent us coupons for $60... More

This hotel reminds us of the hotel from the movie 'Vacancy'. As nice as the pictures look, they fail to show the acess hallway that runs behind the rooms. Conveniently, the acess hallway ran right behind our bathroom. The continental breakfast consisted of chocolate covered doughnuts and cereal with hot coffee. If there is nothing else, this hotel will do,... More
