This is an Econolodge, not the Ritz. Nothing spectacular, but the rooms ARE CLEAN. The Owners DO TAKE PRIDE in cleaning and caring for the rooms. TheTVs are new, mikes and fridges are clean and work, the carpet is clean, and the coffee is good in the morning. I stay at a lot of CHOICE HOtels, and this is one... More

When I arrived at 10;00 pm the room was stuffy and damp smelling. There was no air on. The shower had 3 holes in the wall which I presume were the old handles for the water and shower. The microwave did not work and when I looked at the outlet it was coming out of the wall. There were stains... More

The non smoking room we had smelled of smoke. There were holes in the ceiling from water leaks. The breakfast isn't worth going in the lobby for, go anywhere else. We asked about the pool, you know the pretty one in the pictures on the website, and we were told that pool has been empty for 5 years. We chose... More

We found this hotel in a roadside coupon book and decided to give it a shot. I will start with the good. It was close to the venue that we were attending, Now the bad, 1. Bugs in room- had to switch room at 1 am . 2/ Night clerk is indifferent- two people were outside of our door pounding... More

No frills here, but none are required. For this price, just getting a clean room is nice. However, this place exceeds that expectation easily. Friendly staff, nice room, cheap price. I recommend it heartily.

The hotel is dated but is a good stop over on trips. Well located @ on and off ramp to I#40. The price is right and quite Mike the desk manager is very personable, friendly and efficient. The night desk manager Ken is rude and Lazy. I had to firmly ask for a checkout receipt 3 times. The first two... More

Yes it's old. They are in the process of renovating. I like to stay at Quality Inn but there was nothing available. For the money it was a good deal. Mike, the young man who checked me in, is a keeper. If I was 30 years younger, he would have been in real trouble. LOL. He is smart, personable and... More

My wife and I were on a road trip and stayed our first night here. The room, while a bit aged, served its purpose. It had a fridge with freezer bin, which was fantastic. The shower and sink worked properly. The bed was clean and comfortable, but the carpet showed a bit of wear and had a few stains. the... More

Reeked of cigarette smoke even though we requested a non-smoking room. Old TVs, no alarm clocks or coffee makers. There was filled in holes in the bathroom where they changed out the faucet. The breakfast was a joke, 2 kinds of cereal, oatmeal, crusty pastries and awful waffles that were made in a home waffle maker. And the juice was... More

A so-so hotel, but worked for $57. Room was a little musty and dated. Maybe a 27 inch CRT TV, but cable service seemed OK for the few minutes I watched it. The say they have a premium movie channel included. I was too tired to check to see which one. Pillows were unsubstantial and not great for someone who... More
