The motel is older vintage but neat and clean. The room with a comfortable king size bed had standard furniture including a table, two chairs, dresser, luggage rack and a small wall clothes rail with hangers. A small refrigerator, microwave and sink were against a back wall along with a small safe on the floor. The television was an older... More

Stayed here during my summer vacation trip (July 23-26) while traveling around Lake Erie. There was another guy standing next to the front desk when we entered, and although I later found out that he also worked here, he didn't bother letting us to it. The lady who assisted us when we checked in was so-so. She smiled but kind... More

great location, clean rooms, very affordable. Air conditioning was really loud in our room, but other than that - bare bones place to stay. i would come back - great value for a cheap nights stay. TV is very basic - no cartoon channel for the kids

Needed a place to stay at the last minute for my college reunion. This was the only place left. At first dreaded the idea of the Econo Lodge but here's what made it work for me: Friendly staff, clean room and bathroom, HBO, nice and quiet for easy sleeping. 30' very easy drive from Cleveland/Hopkins Airport. I felt safe there.... More

I found the room very clean and the bed comfortable. Nothing fancy of course, this is an Econolodge. The price was fair, and the staff friendly. I had stayed at the super 8 just down the road the night before. Almost the same rooms. The Econolodge has a better location and a more up to date heater/AC. Either will do... More

This motel is only for those who like filthy carpet, sticky surfaces (table, phone handset), mold in the bathroom, and burned out light bulbs (to go with the cigarette burns in the bedspread?). The desk clerk seemed to not care, as he didn't offer us another room and said he couldn't find any light bulbs. I have contacted Choice Hotels... More

My wife and I stayed in this motel for 5 nights (checked in July 4 - checked out July 9) while we attended the NHRA National event in Norwalk, OH and visited Cedar Point. Our room was clean, had a refrigerator, microwave, and coffeemaker, and everything in it worked as it should. As another reviewer mentioned, there aren't any ESPN... More

i read the reviews on tripadvisor and booked a stay here -- i don't understand how this place is getting 4 and 5 star reviews. first of all -- it looks out onto an electrical plant. it's off the freeway but not as convenient as a couple other hotels at the same exit to get to. the rooms are kind...
