This hotel is old and in need of some repairs but it was not as bad as some mention in their reviews. Yes, it is not the best, but for the price, it is not one that you should pass by. I probably would choose somewhere else to stay if there for more than one night but it was OK... More

When I booked my room, the page said that the price included 2 adults and children were free. When I checked in with my boyfriend and my 13 year old son, the desk clerk, whom I had trouble understanding for his heavy accent, charged me another $10 for each night. Instead of the $120 that I was quoted, I was... More

I WOULD NEVER RECOMMEND THIS PLACE FOR ANYONE TO STAY AT! There are all kinds of health and sanitation issues and the customer service is non-existent! This hotel has received and F rating with the Better Business Bureau and has had 4 complaints in the past 3 years, NONE of which they have addressed or resolved!!! I have contacted the... More

My husband and I were recently traveling to see family when the '09 blizzard hit and we decided we better find a place to stay (unless we wanted to stay in a snowbank on the interstate). We made a call at about 3 in the afternoon and got a reasonable rate at this Econolodge. The check-in was prompt and the... More

Check in was quick, I'd made an on-line reservation so my key and paperwork was waiting for me. Motor court style, parked right outside my door. Room was clean and well maintained. Microwave, fridge, no hairdryer. Heat/AC unit was quiet and worked well. Good lineup on the TV channels. Wi-Fi signal was strong and worked very well. Pillows a little... More

I was traveling with some friends for a race. I've stayed in some less than luxurious accomodations before and I'm certainly not expecting the Ritz from an Econo lodge but JEEZ! This was the worst hotel EVER!!!!! The smell was so bad we bought air freshener to cover it up. The mattress was at least 22 years old (as evidenced... More

Not a fancy hotel, but the least expensive, and the room was great. The owners are updating the motel, and our room was clean, comfortable and very nice. Carpet was clean, bed was firm, comfortable and clean; bathroom was obviously older, but very clean. We were happy.

If you need a bed to lay your head, this will do just fine. Don't expect ANY frills, but for the price, it really can't be beat. It's definitely seen better days, but it was quiet, the bed and linens were new.

I stayed at the EconoLodge as a pit stop on my way to North Carolina. It stood fine for what we needed, but it didn't have a pool or extras like that. The staff had great people's skills, even at 11:30PM, and the breakfasts were tasty and fresh. It was a pretty good hotel to stay at. The only thing... More
