If paint, clean rooms, and bathroom updates could turn around a very old facility that sits too close to a busy highway, this hotel would be a 5-star hotel. Unfortunately, the tiny size of the rooms and the age of the hotel can't be overlooked. The staff are warm and welcoming, but you get what you pay for when you... More

As soon as you walk inside the scent of marijuana hits you in the face. the room was gross, greasy carpet and smelled of cigarette smoke. We finally get to sleep 10pm then get woken up because the front desk... More

After my great experience the night before I decided to give this Econo lodge a try as well. While Econo Lodge does save you some money, its not as great as the one I spent the night at the night before. The bed was worn, no frills, service not as great. Its adequate but its not going to be my... More
