We arrived after dinner and were greeted by a loquacious desk clerk who blamed Price Line for our not having a first floor room, as requested. We had not used Price Line to book the motel. The room was pleasant and everything worked. The breakfast options were better than most.

This hotel is an older hotel but some updates have been completed in the rooms. The bed was comfortable. The area was quiet even though you are right next to the interstate. If you are traveling on Mon-Thur, they serve a free dinner on those nights. We had chili one night and beef stroganoff another night.

Great hotel for the price with an outstanding staff! How wonderful to save a dollar without lowering my standards!!! My advice is to enjoy a clean room plus 2 meals without breaking the bank! The staff was outstanding!!!!!

The room smelled of smoke, cigarette burns on the matrress, dirty blanket. Dingy. Mold in the bathroom. Wasn't expecting anything amazing but cleaner would have been nice. The breakfast was nice though.

When you stay at an Econo Lodge you do not expect much but a low price. However, this Econo Lodge did all it could to deliver price and value. The front desk clerk ( Brandon) was perhaps the friendliest hotel clerk I have ever encountered and I probably have 500+ stays under my belt. He did everything he could to... More
