My daughter and grandson came for a visit. They check into the Econo Lodge for its price and convenience. They checked in late and upon getting to the room the beds had not been made, there was trash in trash can, and wet towels in bathroom. She asked for another room only to be told they didn't have any available.

Room comfortable. A little stuffy when we first entered. Breakfast was adequate. Not a bad place to stay. Not a great place to stay either. Good for traveling. I would stay here again. Located next to Arby's.

This hotel is old and kind of run down. We were in town for a softball tournament and it met our needs for a place to stay but would not be a place that I would visit again. The furnishings are old; however, the room was clean.

This motel is attractive from the outside and obviously was designed to be a deluxe facility. It has an indoor pool which most Econolodges do not , along with 1or 2 other added amenities. The price is reasonable but there is some deterioration in the rooms, if they took care of it this would be a nice motel. It is... More

The lobby and hallways were clean, as was the carpet in our room. The mattress could be replaced, it wasn't very supportive (I don't think it was a pillow top mattress). It would have been nice to have more than 2 pillows on the bed. I sleep with two pillows as does my husband. I checked the drawers, no extra... More

I found this motel with a coupon for a reduced rate. An older motel, but it seemed to properly maintained. The room was comfortable, clean and quiet with an in-room safe. The indoor pool was fairly large for a hotel. The free breakfast was the typical motel fare.
