To reinforce the other reviews, this property is not recommended. It is difficult to choose anything to comment upon that could be considered a positive statement. However, the one star rating is only given, as no bugs were experienced for my stay. This hotel was a Microtel in a former life. Now, called Econo Studios. I reserved a non-smoking room,... More

Our bathroom didn't have a shower curtain, there was a hole in the wall. There wasn't a phone in the room or a hair dryer. We asked to be moved the clerk at front desk didn't even look. We found the staff to be so unhelpful and unfriendly. Our bathroom wasn't cleaned the second day. We wanted to move but... More

Worst lodging experience ever. These are the accommodations that Sean Lomas chooses for his Beach Collegiate Baseball athletes. Disgraceful! The facility is filthy, loud, bad odors, stained carpeting, so much mold in bathrooms that mushroom was growing in shower. Contract signed by athletes is not upheld as there are 4 players forced to share rooms and share double bed, with... More

This has to be the WORST hotel that I've ever stayed in. Between the stinky smell in the hallway & the room, the stains everywhere, "uninvited guests",and the lack of maid services as well as almost being bitten by a pitbull in the hallway I felt like I was being punished for something I did wrong in life. After I... More

I stayed at this hotel when it first opened and it was still under Microtel. Those pictures still here is what we got. A clean, classic motel. We had great service, a decent complimentary breakfast, a clean pool, and nice rooms. Fast forward three years later and I'm planning another visit down south from the Tri-State area. I intended to... More

This place is really terrible. Drug dealers, strippers, and rehab patients all live at this place all under one roof. Even the staff are addicts. I checked in for a week and I did not have any hot water for three days, when they did fix it, the manager told me to watch how I use the water because it... More

Me and my fiance reserved a room for two nights. I believe the pictures posted fooled us. When we checked in we were given a room with a stand up shower and a shower chair. The room smelt sour and carpet was dirty. Requested the room that we reserved online. To our dismay this one was not any better. There... More
