We were greeted like old friends at the reception desk. All our questions were answered, The place was clean, the beds were comfortable, the room had a fridge and micro wave. Breakfast was adequate: 3 kinds of cereal, pastries, bagels, good hot coffee. At a bargain price! If you enjoy walking, it takes 10 minutes to walk downtown.

The manager is very approachable. The carpet was so dirty that when I started my shower I noticed my bare feet had tracked in dirt. He explained that the dirt comes from the parking lot and carpet cleaning every 3 months is not enough. Perhaps what is needed is 1) better vacuum cleaners (check out consumer reports and maintain them... More

This is a nice little gem of a hotel run by a personable, ethical manager. Don't let the exterior or inexpensive room price put you off! While the hotel is undergoing renovations - new roof, new AC units, new bathrooms, premium chair-height toilets, wall-mounted hair dryers - the facilities are clean, pleasant, and surprisingly comfortable. I found the mattress and... More

I booked a room here because of the reasonable price, and the reviews weren't terrible. First, the good: The staff was friendly, and the room was decently clean. These factors kept the review from being one star. The bad: The traffic noise was terrible. I had to keep the AC fan and the bathroom fan on all night to be... More

Recently I was taking a budget roadtrip and saw a variety of inexpensive lodgings across the USA I was blown away by how clean and well maintained this Econo Lodge was - it was by far my best night on the road from North to the South. The standard of the place far exceeded the economy option - it was... More

My wife and I stayed here for one night in September, 2014. I selected this motel based on the reviews I saw here, and duly armed, I requested a first floor room away from the street. It was a little startling at first to see the nearly empty parking lot but upon check-in and after a conversation with the owner... More

We had a feeling it wouldn't be the nicest of places to stay based on the cost and photos and we weren't disappointed in that respect. The parking lot was empty when we turned up and although the girl on the check-in desk was friendly and helpful, even she seemed surprised that we'd chosen to stay there and booked in... More

This EconoLodge is clean and comfortable. Good management who cares about his property and is updating it. Comfortable beds. Would stay here again. Pretty close to downtown. Only complaint is coffee could be stronger.
