It was a cold, windy night when I arrived at this motel. I had to haul quite a bit of stuff to my second-floor room, so I secured a luggage cart and loaded it up. The single elevator was quite far from my vehicle and from my room, so I had to hurry through the cold wind to the elevator,... More

On behalf of our entire team, I would like to apologize for failing to exceed your expectations. The buildings are quite large and the design is not the most convenient for some guests. In an effort to better accommodate our guests using the wifi, we attempt to secure upgrades periodically. Unfortunately your stay coincided with one of our upgrades and... More

We stayed here in August and had a great time. We enjoyed the pool to ourselves except once we had to share with 1 other person. The kids really loved it. We had the suite on the ground level which was very handy to keep an eye on the kids in the pool. Very friendly and helpful at the front... More

My daughter and I stayed here a couple weeks ago for a couple of nights. First, let me say that we have definitely stayed in nicer places BUT for the very low advanced rate we paid, this would be as good as it gets. Let's start with the good. We were located in the alcove area of the building and... More

We did an overnight trip to shop and use up rewards points that expire at year end, and quite frankly I wasn't expecting much from an Econolodge, which generally are older motel properties, with outdated furnishings and very basic accommodation. This property is located on Meridian the main road a stones throw from Bellis Fair, and close to the highway... More

The rooms were pretty average and were clean. One member of our party broke his leg and the front desk staff was extremely accommodating with changing rooms to a ground floor. They also let us stay a little past check-out to accommodate our ride to the airport (granted, this was partly because it was off-season and they were not busy).... More

We stay here with some regularity and have always been happy. This time we requested a room for disabled. I was preparing for a colonoscopy and still recovering from total knee replacement. While the room was perfect I was chagrined to find that this room was located the absolute farthest from the front desk. Third floor, back of the facility.... More

Your observations have aided us in locating areas needing improvement. When the building was first designed, I believe they did not put much thought into the location of the handicapped rooms. I apologize for any inconvenience you experienced and I hope that you will consider staying with us again so that we can have another chance to provide you with... More
