One of the nastiest hotels ever! We were charged extra because we checked in early and had to request another room. Toilet barely flushed, bathroom and tub dirty and stains all over the curtains. The 2nd room was not much better, only stayed because we were tired after a 6 hour drive and I didn't foot the bill. Tomorrow I... More

Advertised renovated but not true only out side. Said there is a business center no there isn't. High speed Internet, slow and it keeps kicking me off every 20 min. Oh and breakfast discussing, dirty and messy.

The hotel and the rooms smelled. The sheets were stained. Walls and carpets were dirty. Do not believe the positive reviews. Sleeping on the floor at the airport (our other option when our plane was diverted to Memphis) would have been better.

Toilet did not flush properly, never received service. Called front desk 3 times no answer. Went to front desk, reported my dissatisfaction, told them I did not want to be disturbed. Put do not disturb sign on door. Awoken by phone call 15 minutes later. ink cracked. No way to take a bath. Breakfast was terrible.

My mother, younger brother and I stayed at this hotel Memorial Day weekend and well....I should have made the reservations instead of waiting on my mother. I try to NEVER stay at an Econo Lodge, especially having once worked at one, and the first 2 nights I honestly was surprised. Surprised to find an empty shampoo bottle in the shower... More

This is a no star hotel, it smells very bad, it has been well used and not maintained. Baseboards are falling off the walls, carpets are stained, bathtubs have more black on them then white. I left, reservation cancelled!
