This is a Good Hotel for the money. We booked on the AARP rate and were thankful it was offered at this hotel. The hotel was clean with no smells. We stayed one night visiting family and will stay again when passing through. Simple breakfast was offered.

Right off interstate. Very clean ! Close to lots of restaurants. Quick overnight stay with a great price. Was able to see room before we committed. Even offered small breakfast to start your day. Lots of other hotels in area,but don't dismiss this one as an economical option.

Good hotel just off the highway we were only passing through so this was ideal, very clean, friendly and bed was comfy. air con worked well. Good eateries in walking distance, we chose the Red Lobster just across the road, really good. Only downside - we were on a road trip and stayed in 18 motels and only two never... More

We requested and recd' a king bed , non smoking room. It was very nice. Appeared to have been recently remodelled , but owner said it was done 3 years ago. Property is obviously well maintained. Close to gas,car wash, & ecomonical eatery places. Convenient to Interstate highways as well !

I've now stayed at the Econo Lodge North twice on business. Both trips were quick in-and-out business visits that necessitated a safe, clean place to rest my head at night. The staff members are all very pleasant, and the rooms are clean and safe. The location is in a safe part of town, and I never felt uneasy despite being... More

stopped here sort of last minute on the way from Lancaster PA to Chattanooga TN. Got a great room at a great price. Very comfortable. Easy on and off the highway. I would definitely stay here again. The desk clerk made checking in so easy.

Arrived at Econo Lodge about 6:30 and I was a little nervous about the room because of reviews on Trip Advisor so I asked to see the room first. The man in front of me requested a smoking room and the lady at the desk said the smoking rooms were downstairs around back. She took me to look at the... More

If you're just looking for a place to stay while passing through, this one will suffice. Nothing special, but the room was clean and the motel was quiet. Continental breakfast was bare bones, and the area for pets was adaquate. The saving grace of this motel was the proximity to good restaurants. Red Lobster next door, a very good Chinese... More

Nothing very fancy here, but a good clean room and friendly staff await. "Continental Breakfast" was very minimal (2 cereals, thawed bagels and mini-muffins, juices and coffee) but other restaurants were nearby - some within walking distance. Overall decent value for services received.
