Stopped at this place very late at night after 12 hours driving. Talked to the man at the desk; got a reasonable rate. Non-smoking room smelled like cigarettes and the carpets were disgusting. A/C smelled moldy and refrigerator was barely cooler than the room. Too tired to worry about that so I had a drink and crashed out. Was awakened... More

Could not beat the price for a place to stop on a long drive. The rooms where clean and had space to move around. Right off the highway with easy access back on. The host was very kind and eager to assist. They had my paperwork ready and all I had to do was sign and get my key, which... More

We got there around 11pm... I had to ask to change rooms, pillow cases smells sweat, carpets was stained and the AC smelled bad when we turned on. Guy was friendly, he gave us another room, but, I had to ask for fresh pillow cases, the were smelly too. A clean room is everything we ask...

When traveling and making one night hotel stays, I don't expect resort type rooms, give me a clean room, decent bedding and linens, and a TV that works. Here we did not receive any of these. Did not get any of the so called amenities, no fridge, no microwave, no coffee in room. We usually travel on overnights with no... More

We stayed twice within a weeks time and got the same pet friendly room 135. Carpet was bad in the room.... but that's ok...that's why its good for pets. It was very nice to have a place to welcome the puppy too! The front desk clerk was great and she remembered me and told us that the room had a... More

Stopped in to stay overnight and didn't require much. All I needed was a place to shower and crash...that's exactly what I got. Parking right infront of the hotel room made taking bags inside a breeze. Hot shower, microwave, TV, but building is old. But when u get a cheap room in most cases you get what you pay for.

My husband travels for work and has stayed in more hotels than I can count. Often I accompany him on his trips, and I thought I had seen "bad hotels". No. I had no idea they could be this disgusting. Let me start by saying that I TRIED to give this place the benefit of the doubt. As soon as... More

We stopped here in early May. We were on our way north after a holiday in the southern USA and had used Econolodges on 4 previous occasions during the trip and had been very satisfied. This place was not only the worst by far but also the most expensive by far. The list of problems included what looked like mildew/mold... More

If you want a clean, attractive place to stay this isn't it. Motel is old. For me the redeeming feature was a door to outside rather than a inside corridor. Rooms had fridge and microwave. According to the Choice Privileges web site where I booked my stay there was a continental breakfast. Don't believe it. Not even a coffee pot... More
