I have used this hotel many times over the yrs. It was a Best Western and then a Grand Villa. It was recently bought by an East Indian family who own many locations across the country. Unfortunately they have the normal family members living on site and cooking in their rooms. The hallways are saturated by the smells of their... More

Clean rooms, excellent customer service from front desk staff, Good breakfast. Nice hotel for the price. Great location, easy to get to. Only complaint is the pillows are too fluffy, made my neck hurt.

This hotel is under new owners and employees from what I understand so keep in mind they may still need time to make things better. The heated pool, is not heated, in fact it was so cold that my pregnant daughter could not go in it and enjoy it with us. The hot tub is not in great working order,... More

I believe this was a Best Western or at least that was what showed up on my GPS. Don't be fooled by the Econo name this is a first class hotel with very clean, attractive and I would guess 5-9 years old. The rooms were spotless and linens new. The bed was very comfortable. I would rate this as an... More

Stayed for a week for work. No complaints. Room was on the second floor and mostly quiet. Had a noisy guest overhead one night. Gone the next day. Breakfast is good. Lots of parking. Was surprised to see the older style TV and some kind of satellite box, but not a big deal. It worked. Elevator and exercise room. Something... More

Stayed one night this week. Fairly large room, king bed. Tiny microwave and a refrig that we didn't use. I woke up at 5:30 and couldn't get back to sleep because doors were slamming both inside and outside. Our room had two sinks, a regular one with a large vanity, another one just outside the bathroom with a small sink... More
