Located a bit off I-35, and not easily seen. Place is nothing special, but ok if you're just interested in an inexpensive place for the night - and going to be heading out early in the a.m. Cooking smells from manager's quarters fill the lobby, which can be unpleasant to those not used to them. Check-in was OK, but got... More

Wi-fi was good. Horrible smell in the lobby. Very hot in halls and room. Smelled musty in the hall. No outside entrance to second floor other than the lobby. Near interstate and easy to find--but I am sure there is something better nearby. Breakfast looked very sparse-I skipped due to the smell.

The room was good enough and close to what I expect from Econolodge. However, when I asked for the AARP rate my request was refused. I'm 64 so getting that rate - which is traditionally lower than "Best Available " - has never been a problem before. The AARP rate, I found out later was $20 cheaper. I will DEFINITELY... More

For the price it's a decent place to get some sleep. We stayed there 2 nights for a graduation. Most other hotels were booked. Not as nice as other Choice Hotels. Could really use updating. Old wallpaper in bathroom. Sheets had some yellowing.

We have stayed here several times as our half way stop driving from Minnesota to Houston, TX. It has always been exceptionally clean and staff is very friendly. Economy lodgings with great price. Can't beat it and has continental breskfast.

The motel overall looks a bit shabby but for the price it was fine. Vanity was tiny making it very difficult to accommodate the things travelers need. We appreciated the reasonably priced and convenient laundry and the manager was very pleasant.

After 11 hours of driving, I was tired and just wanted a gold night's sleep, and this was the place for it. It was clean and well protected from the noise of nearby I35.
