Exactly what I was after. Front desk girl can't remember her name, but she knows what her job is! She assisted me and my kids to our room carrying the majority of our luggage!! We visit Carthage every year. See you next year!

I was here for two nights, my room was accessible from both parking lot and inside hallway. The room was clean and bright with all the necessary amenities. Breakfast was hot (and cold too) with eggs, sausage, waffles, biscuits and gravy and the other regulars. There are a number of eateries within walking distance - no 'fine' dining places that...

Reserved for Non-Smoking room and received a smoking room. The room and entire building including reception lobby smelled terrible. Better cleaning solutions could improve the smell. The Staff is pleasant. Has no elevator.

I stayed there for 4 nights from August 5 - August 9, 2015. The rooms was terrible. The toilet wasn't working so I went up to the front desk to tell them and they didn't send anyone to fix it. Instead they gave me a toilet plunger and told me to do it by myself. The manger and people who... More

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
