We were on our way home from Missouri and after reading the good reviews posted we decided to give it a try. What a jewel. The room and clean, bed was extremely comfortable, breakfast was more than ample and Raj was so very nice. If you stay here you won't be disappointed.

Can't say a single thing bad about this place. Great value at $43 (we used choice points) never had a nicer hotel in this price range. Just the basics, has all the things you need and nothing you don't while traveling through. The breakfast was well kept with all the usual suspects, bed was comfortable, the room was spacious, friendly... More

Just passing through trying to get to Muskogee so booked this on the fly. Turned out it was a very nice room. You're on a highway but the room is not noisy. Well worth the money we paid and very nice overall.

It was right on our route. The bath area was tiny but the room itself was spacious. Good breakfast. Internet access seemed a mite slow. Only real downside was the room's heat pump/air conditioner. The fan ran continuously, so all night it was blasting either hot air or cool air. The unit needs a deflector to force that air upwards... More

I only paid 40 dollars for this through priceline, but it was just fine for a couple of nights. Jennifer, at the front desk, was very friendly and efficient. The hotel is old, but everything was in good shape. The a/c worked fine, but the internet wasn't always well connected. That might have been a problem with my computer though... More

My husband and I are traveling for 5 weeks through the US. Most of the time we stay in a hotel from the Choice group. Since we had a very good stay at an Econo lodge in Grenada we thought we could book again an Econo Lodge. However this was the worst hotel we ever stayed over the past years.... More
