A friend and I stayed here while we were competing in the local Ironman 70.3 mile triathlon. Each of us got our own room and were very surprised with how clean and nice the hotel was. I would feel comfortable bringing my family here. I was really impressed with the breakfast and the exercise room. The pool was really nice... More

I am here on business for a two month time period. Due to the popularity of the area in the summer, it is very difficult to find good and reasonable accomodations. I had to stay for a period of time in Manchester. It was a horrible experience and I came here to see if this faciity could help me. My... More

We came into town really late. No reservation, the owner was very nice. Helpful. Entered everything in their computers quickly, helped my kids and I to our room and brought us extra blankets. In the morning he helped me carry our stuff to the car. Super nice and helpful. Cheaper prices with pool, hot tub, tanning room, game room and... More

Unethical manager told us canceling would be no problem and we were ALL SET. Two weeks later we see the deduction on our bank statement. Called the guy, same guy we had dealt with, he now says he doesn't know what we're talking about. I have filed a claim with the BBB. This is a shady guy, he lies. DO... More

Family received Shalimar gift certificates during 2014 to use for pool, now the Econo Lodge. I asked the clerk if some of the certificates could still be honored, understanding they probably wouldn't honor all 20 of them. I heard an abrupt "no", but I could pay the $10 to use the pool. It was a missed opportunity to demonstrate great... More

Myself and a few friends stayed here on the 28th of March. The rooms were very clean. Enjoyed using the pool and hot tub. The staff was friendly and helpful. I would stay again. Management is working hard to improve this place.

We stayed for only one night and we got exactly what we paid for. Our first room reeked of smoke and we asked the front desk for a different room and they happily changed it for us. The second room smelled much better and everything was fine. I liked the mini fridge in the room, not every hotel has one.... More

My bathroom was completely new and clean and standard for a 2 star hotel..The hallways did smell like a pool and mildew in the but the room smelled clean and... More

Poor Management, with no customer service. Very unconcerned for there guests comfort/ happiness. Not able to accommodate infants or handicap. No elevator. Beds are rock hard and so are the pillows. The male housekeeper was handling food and cleaning rooms simultaneously with out gloves. The worst part is the overwhelming odor of mildew!

My husband went up for a ice fishing weekend in early February. The place was definitely run down and required some updating. They booked the place late, so it ended up costing way more than it should have ($100 a night?!). This place is a $30 a night type of place. But they booked the place late so you can't... More
