We needed a cheap place to stay that was close to the arena so this was really the only place. You definitely got what you paid for here. Bad lighting in the bathrooms, poor quality of the tv, smoky hallways, doors getting stuck. I wasn't expecting much and that's good because we didn't get much.

I am a professional who stayed at Econo Lodge for 4 nights and truly enjoyed myself. The room I had was clean and had nice décor. There was a fridge and microwave. For the price of $42 a night I was not expecting this. The front desk staff was honest. Bob returned my $50 bill when I accidently gave him... More

This was by far the absolute worst most horrible place i have ever stayed in, in my entire life!!! It was nasty, unclean rooms, a/c didn't work, everything smelled horrible, the pool was torn apart uncovered filled with filth, the staff didn't know a word of English and had a homeless person sleeping on the front steps. Every time i... More

I am an engineer living in this motel since late July, 2013. I find the staff very cooperative especially the front desk associate who is very welcoming, polite and provides excellent service. The cleaning people are very responsive and clean my room every day and put fresh clean towels. The breakfast is full with cereal, muffins, coffee in a very... More

I had a great experience with this hotel, although others clearly didn't. What I experienced was a great room with good TV, microwave, fridge, and fast WiFi. Beds were very comfy. Bathroom seemed OK, but I didn't use the shower so I can't comment on that. Price was incredibly cheap, which is what drew me. Also, it's a Choice Hotel.... More

When did hotels like this become such dives and $50/night is not cheap. I expect some minimum level of quality for that price and this hotel didn't have it. The only two positive things I can say about this hotel are the following... Pros: - The room is clean but I use the term "clean" loosely.. at least there were... More

This is not a place for someone who cannot walk stairs. The only way in without steps is thru the back. The shower is a stall shower. I had to ask for breakfast. They brought me a prepackaged muffins. Definitely not very good in understanding English. There were cobwebs in the corners. The bath math had black spots on it.... More

If you are looking for a place to spend the night for business, going to the casino or a show at the arena the price is reasonable for the area. The rooms are clean and have been update with flat screen tv's, atleast in the rooms I've been in. They have replaced the carpet, which it needed, in the rooms... More
