Good location and best price in town. Front desk was friendly, informative, and helpful. Our room was clean but had a very strong odor... smelled like they may have went crazy with a freshening spray. My guess was that it was used to cover up cigarette smoke. That was really my only issue with the room. It also had nice... More

No professionalism. The hotels main picture makes you think that your staying in a hotel, but it's more like a motel. It's one story and in the shape of a rectangle behind a Mexican restaurant. "Continental breakfast" is in the same small area as checkin. Basically no where to sit and enjoy. Christy the manager of housekeeping, front desk and... More

Excellent staff, very friendly. We found out we were given a free upgrade which was very nice. The room had a small fridge and a microwave, 2 beds and a separate sitting area. The fixtures were a bit dated but the room was CLEAN! The carpets, etc appeared to have been replaced recently. Not a luxury suite, but then again... More

I decided to go with another Econo Lodge because of the positive experience I had with the brand in the past. This was no exception. We were surprised with how cheap the room and how clean/up to date it was. Nice TV with a HDMI cord! Other than that it's just your basic hotel room, great for a one night... More

I would not recommend staying here unless you are only planning on sleeping there and then I would limit your stay to only 1, maybe 2 nights. We found a dead spider in one of the beds and there was a dead hornet in the heating/air unit by the temperature gauges. Continental breakfast includes wrapped muffins, 1 flavor of bagel,... More

I wasn't expecting much when I booked a room at this Econolodge 3 hours before we had to be there. I have stayed at some crummy Econolodges. I was more than pleasantly surprised when we arrived. Our room was cleaner than the beach house we rented for over $2000. I mean it was REALLY clean. No weird crud in the... More

It was a surprise for me. For the price i paid for this motel, it was actually very nice. The manager of this hotel is very friendly and helpful. Rooms are pretty average but very clean. Bathrooms were clean too. Their breakfast is served in the small lobby area and has very limited options. Dont set very high expectations. This... More

I have stayed at this Econolodge for a week at a time on several occasions. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms had been recently painted and the carpet was new. The air conditioning unit was also new. All of the linens and terry were like new, without stains. The room was very clean. They have a simple... More

The room cost $56 after tax through hotels.com. I didn't have high hopes was just looking fur a place to lay out heads after a long day at Cedar Point. The hotel didn't disappoint. The staff was friendly. The room was clean. The beds were comfortable enough, certainly not like home. There wasn't a mini-fridge or coffee maker, but we... More

This is an older motel, but is reasonably maintained. The staff I met were quite friendly and nice to talk to. But the facilities seems to be basic, and the air conditioning unit is old-styled, dusty and a bit noisy. The continental breakfast is served at the small lobby, which is limited to pastry and bread items. There is no... More
