This place is filthy. Bogeys on the walls. Mold all over. Don't stay here. We travel often. And stay at budget priced hotels. This is the worst. I am afraid to shut the lights off. There is no smoke detector in our room. We are leaving

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

The 77 express way was very close, shopping center... More

We pull into parking lot... it's filled with drunk people partying outside the front of the hotel by their vehicles. 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
