My husband and I stayed two nights at this hotel with our small dog. I'm somewhat of a hotel snob and had always envisioned Econo Lodges to be ones to avoid - expecting see-through towels, disrepair, and questionable housekeeping. This was a last-minute weekend trip and the reviews on TripAdvisor drew me in. I was pleasantly surprised to see that... More

Once again we stayed at this hotel. The perfectly cleaned room passed every test. Dirt was removed from every high and low area. Picture frames, mirrors etc. Nice new touch was the much needed data ports near the bed for cell phone charging etc. Breakfast was a little space without fruit or yogurts but it's an econo lodge not a...

Friendly staff, clean room and comfortable beds. Great water pressure in the shower too! The only items that kept me from giving 5 out of 5 was the musty smell in the elevator and how stuffy our room was when we arrived. Opening the window for a bit fixed that though. It is also very easy to get to. We... More

Excellent WiFi available along with microwave refrigerator and color tv.. Bathroom facilities very clean and the staff are very pleasant to deal with. Again I highly recommend this Econo Lodge

Stayed at the Econo Lodge on our way home from Virgina. Very easy location to get to right off of Interstate 81 Lovely clean comfortable room with excellent wifi refrigerator microwave and color tv. Would recommend this hotel as very reasonable room rates. We have stayed here on several different occasions

We stayed at this hotel end December and gave it 5 points, and they deserved it. This time around, not so good. The rooms are fine, some little hiccups as others noted, but quite okay for the money. The breakfast however was nothing like before. The only protein was a cold hard boiled egg. There were no waffles or pancakes.... More

Stayed at the Econo Lodge on our way home from Florida. The people were excellent and I recommend staying here. The room was clean as was the rest of the hotel. It is pet friendly if you need it, but not much room to take the dog out. That would be the only slightly negative comment. We will stay there... More

This Econo Lodge is hands down the best Econo Lodge we have stayed in. Clean through out, friendly staff, easy off and on I 81 and they even have a kitchen for the guests to use!

We decided to give this hotel another try based on the recent reviews and I can't believe we stayed in the same hotel! This hotel has three floors, the top one is reserved for smokers and the first floor caters to pets and their owners. We stayed on the supposedly smoke free second floor. As soon as the fan came...

I have stayed at this Econo Lodge several times. Stayed in Feb and March of this year, so far. This is one of the most clean motels I have ever stayed, and it has been that way every time I've stayed here. TV, lights, heat - everything worked great. Easy access from the interstate, great rates, and very nice staff... More
