It was a trip from our school and we were really satisfied. Rooms were airy, clean, bright and super roomy. They had free breakfast, complimentary breakfast, a nice pool and what not. Parking is free as well and the atmosphere was nice. Service was excellent and we have absolutely nothing to complaint.

This was a big disappointment. Again I did not listen to previous reviews. My mistake. We did get a first floor room as requested but we were not happy with the room. It was dark and dingy with paint chipped and the back of the door had only been half painted. We did have two entries and felt compelled to... More

Stayed here 3 nights for reasonable summer rate, during Mickelson Trail marathon weekend. On Friday night the hot tub was working fine, and I was looking forward to soaking my aching muscles in it after Sunday's race. Unfortunately the heater in it broke on Saturday!! The young lady at the desk was apologetic, and when I asked about an adjustment... More

As a family of 5 it is hard to find room enough for all of us, but when using the Choicehotels.com website and entered 5 the site offered the double queen with a roll-a-way as an option. Upon entering the room we realized the there was no cot and it would be a very tight fit. The roll-a-way needed to... More

This was very impressive for an Econolodge! Econolodge is generally a budget hotel, and I expect a pretty basic but clean stay. This surpassed my expectations by far! The guy working the front desk when we checked in (the evening of 5/7) was very pleasant. We got into our room and I discovered a bunch of hair on two pillows,... More

I recently drove cross country and stayed in 4 different hotels. This review is basing the standards against the other 3 hotels. All 4 hotels were within $5 of each other. This hotel was so refreshing after the horrible experience outside of Chicago. We were 2 females traveling with 2 cats. With pets we were giving a ground level room... More

Rooms and halls were clean. Pool was nice but go during the day. My only complaint is between 5-6 the drinkers show up at the pool. We were here 2 stays in the last week each for 2 nights and every night was the same. Majority of the staff was friendly. A few went above and beyond when my son... More

We stayed in this motel a few years ago and decided to give it another try and the remodel was excellent, but still some issues -no darkening curtains on a west-facing room so too much sun. During our stay we had a medical emergency and staff was wonderful, gave quickest directions to hospital, extended the stay when we called from... More
