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

I paid 46 dollars a night using a booking sight. Yes the place is run down but it does look like they are doing improvements and starting with the rooms. 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

When I made reservatons, the hotel was still the Shalimar. It has since converted to an Econolodge, and the new management seem to have issues with money management. During our stay, the pool was not in operation, and we were told at check-in that it would be available the day after, then each day we were told 'the next day'... More

I usually make my reviews based on price vs quality/quantity value. this place is definitely not worth it. It's now Econo lodge. Customer service is horrible, place was DIRTY, my duvet cover was stained and dirty with what appeared to be vomit, the continental breakfast was gross; it consisted of rotten apples and bananas, stale bagels and pastries, cold coffee...

This place is under new management. It has switch from the Shalimar Resort to an Econo Lodge. We requested a non smoking room but the room stunk like cigarettes. The bathroom was in terrible shape. The tub would not drain and it looked like there was some mold build up on the ceilings. The beds were as hard as a... More

Read all of the one star reviews. I can only echo what other guests have already posted. This place is disgusting. I wouldn't recommend it to my worst enemy. Nasty. There is the pungent smell of mold and mildew everywhere. The pool is freezing cold and the hot tub looks like it hasn't been cleaned in years. This place is... More
