The room itself wasn't terribly bad, but the property is awful. Unfortunately, we were looking for a room on Friday afternoon of WKU Homecoming. We ended up with no other choice even though the reviews were pretty bad. We booked a double (no king available), non-smoking room for 2 nights through tripadvisor. When we arrived we found a note saying... More

I booked a room at the Econo lodge because it was a good price with an ok rating. I was surprised actually, my room smelled cleaned when I first opened the door. The room itself actually appears to have been recently renovated. The room was also a good size. Very happy with the room for the price. $65 Rm# 123.... More

Stayed here once before and the experience was not very good. But I recently stayed here again for 4 nights to give it another chance. Big mistake. At check in Monique was helping me but had to print from another computer. While standing at the counter a guy named Alex asked if he could help rather rudly. I told him... More

Booked this hotel because we could park our car in front of our room, it was a clean room but our room faced the speedway and the locals would park in parking place and hang out, we didn't have any trouble but with locals hanging out for hours it made us uncomfortable with our cars. Staff was friendly had to... More

Terrible front desk service. Was not the counter when we arrived around 630. The man at the counter had to go to different area to get mwilson. We wanted RED ROOF because of recent positive experience. She did not tell us that she was putting us in the EconoLodge, shame it did not burn down when they had a fire.... More

We stopped over for the night on our drive from Tx to Pa. First impression wasn't positive. The office was relocated to the Red Roof Inn next door, and I noticed a tarp on the roof in places. On check in, I discovered that the damage was due to a recent fire. As a result, wi fi and phones were... More

We stopped here on our way to Florida. It was passed midnight and we just needed a place to lay our heads for the night. The room was clean and nicely decorated even though the outside screamed redecorate me. The service desk guy was very nice and informative. The phones in the room didn't work or have Wifi, but he...
