We arrived at 2 am with reservations. The clerk was jovial and friendly despite the hour. The room was spacious, clean and seemed newly renovated. Breakfast was typical for Econolodge, bagels, toast, cereal, english muffins, fruits. The waitress was sweet. It restored my faith in Econo Lodge.

Seedy dark area. Could hear people talking several rooms off talking. Could very clearly hear people having sex. Place looks like they rent by the hour. Grabbed our stuff and checked out minutes after checking in. The guy at the desk said another customer tried the same room earlier and changed rooms because of the sex. They must get people... More

Showing it's age, but clean, quiet and good service. Bed comfortable. TV old style, but it worked well and cable TV. Close to highway, restaurants and shopping. Easy access to Salmon Run Mall. Decent Continental Breakfast

rooms average and odd thing with checking in as you have to stop at front office, then drive back to the hotel units. atmosphere interesting as halls seem dark, rooms are worn and could use up date. OK location for a night or two as one not in the room for long, usually to sleep and then move on.

rooms are alright. We've been in nicer for less money though. The room was quite to the outside as the building is way off the road, but the walls to the bathroom and "jet" sounding fan are paper thin. This is OK if you need something for a few hours like we did at 1:30am, but I wouldn't book a... More

The office is in a building on the highway, but the building with the rooms is away from the highway so it is quite quiet. The décor was typically Econo Lodge (dingy rugs), but the sleep and shower quality were excellent. The free internet worked well, and we were pleased that the TV offerings included MS NBC. The owner/manager was... More

Another hotel that really went up in price since last year. Stay here because it is close to everything and the pool is real nice, very clean. Have a nice seating area outside where you can dry off after swimming or just sit and relax. Room is quite small and breakfast was average. Not worth the price.

We have stayed here before and most of the time it is OK. Old and out dated hotel but OK place to stay. However if you need any extras like pillows ask before everyone one leaves. Called to get extra pillows around 3pm and was told maintenance would bring them but was on break and we were going out soon.... More
