We have something to tell you about our stay. This Econo Lodge is a poor representation of our company. For the following reason: 1. Missing a lamp shade. 2. Missing hair dryer. (Went to front desk and told: ok missing lamp shade and we have given out all hair dryers.) 3. The walls of the room were filthy and dirty.... More

The room was filthy and had a musty/moldy smell. There were black marks on the sheets. The furniture was damaged, and there were cracks in the bathroom floor. The shower was not clean either. The hotel is next to a strip club, and the place seemed to be more of a shack up motel. This was evident by a girl... More

Stayed here from 30Aug-01Sep2014. Extremely disappointed. VERY musty smell in room (had to buy a bottle of Fabreeze to mediate some of it), room in very poor condition (cracked walls), bedding horrible (old mattress and poor condition of covers). At first glance, thought that this was an "hourly room" to accommodate the needs of a Gentleman's Club directly across the... More

This motel is old and not kept up to date. The mattress was HORRIBLE!!! Drawers were broken as was the handle on the bedside table. Room was so musty/moldy smelling that we had to go buy Lysol to spray in the room so we could try to get some sleep. The pillows had a terrible nasty smell and the housekeeper... More

This hotel does need updating but I have stayed in far worse! You get what you pay for. For a budget hotel, I would stay here again. I have read other reviews. You can't expect a 5STAR hotel if you only pay $39. So for what I paid, it was decent. The beds were actually comfortable. I slept really well.... More

When we stayed here, it was cold and snowing. The hotel did not salt the walkway in front of our room, nor did they clear the parking lot. We were on the 1st floor, and the people in the above room made noise ALL night long. Not a pleasant stay.

The rates are great, but you get what you pay for. Room was ok - at best. Our locks did not, but it was not too clean. Floor in the bathroom was sticky, carpet was dirty. Bed linen seemed clean, and we did sleep well. We did not try the breakfast, mostly because of the room condition. We went across... More

Okay. Definitely should have read the reviews. We got the room for $56 and change tax and all. Wasn't worried because I stayed at an econo lodge in Chattanooga this past winter for $35 a night. And it was wonderful. Up here to see a sick family member. On a budget. Okay. Here goes. They are remodeling the hotel. So... More

The room was a steal at $40.00, but that was in line with the condition of the room. Dresser drawer, was broken, carpet was new, nice microwave & fridge. But main concern transits live there on a full time basis. Chairs on sidewalk, pit bulls, counted 3. Renters , guest BBQ on sidewalk. Most serious complaint, my daughter and me... More
