Our tour group is staying here overnite before departing for Cape Cod, MA. We were greeted with our group's name, Kenley Konnection, on the roadside marquee. My room is spotless and very large, with a comfy king-size bed. We are located in the very beautiful, up-in-the-clouds, Pocono Mts, upstate Pennsylvania! I love it already!

We stayed there for one night and we were surprised by the quality of the this hotel. We were not expecting a good service like that from an Econo Lodge. The front desk clerk was very helpful and welcoming. The room was outdated however, large, very comfortable and clean. The TV was small and not a flat screen. TV should... More

It was late at night and I had not called ahead but Frank was very pleasant and quickly got use into a room after a busy day of travel. We slept very well and felt secure. Had I returned home that day I would have stayed again. The price was fair and the room was clean. Thank You

We stayed here four nights and were delighted with every aspect. Large clean rooms, free wifi, a nice lobby, and a cheery breakfast area. The property feels safe, the rates are good, and the staff is very pleasant and accommodating. And joy of joys, there's a small coin laundry available! You cannot go wrong staying here.

I stayed here overnight on my way through on I-81. It's conveniently located just off the exit. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful. The room was clean and nice, not dreary like some places. The king size bed was comfortable, the room had a fridge, microwave, coffee maker, and desk. Coffee was also available all day in the...

Very nice and accommodating staff. Clean updated lobby. Room was very spacious and clean. Bed was comfortable. Rested well. Not your typical EconoLodge, this one is upscale. Wish they were all this nice! Staff is really concerned that your stay is good. We were very pleased and price was great!

Stayed at this Econo Lodge in May and was very pleased with how clean my room turned out to be. Awesome! Hats off to the housekeeping dept. for such an excellent job. Staff was very courteous and the rates are great. Quick check-in and check-out. Large truck parking made this Econo Lodge perfect. Would stay again and would recommend to... More

My husband, two dogs and I spent one night at this incredibly inexpensive Econo Lodge. Check-in was a breeze and we were provided a comfortable room. Staff were very friendly and accommodating. Beds appeared a tad small, but nonetheless were comfortable. B'fast was quite good. The hotel is only 5 miles from the beautiful Mohegan Sun Casino so if you're... More

I just stayed here with my four young children. I felt safe at all times. The staff was friendly and very on top of things. I didn't have to wait or ask twice for anything we needed. Housekeeping was friendly and worked willingly around our morning schedule. The free continental breakfast is more than I've seen at most places. They... More
