Do NOT stay here! Unless you are comfortable in dirty, unsafe conditions! Driving back to NY from Florida, Myself & my family stayed here at 3:00AM as we were too tired to drive. Rate was 49.99 online (56.57 with taxes). We just wanted to rest. The hotel is set back down off the main road which IMMEDIATELY worried me. It... More

Desk clerk refused to show us the room before we paid ... he gives us a "non smoking" room which totally tank of cigarettes. The clerk refused to change our rooms, saying "you already have a non smoking room" ... we wanted to check out and he refused to refund, saying "you need to pay a cancellation fee which is... More

This place, is SWEEEEEEET. You can do you, be yourself, no judgement or harrasment as long as you're respectful and discreet, whatever. It's like a nice little community of people that live here long-term, they have been cool to us so for, we've stayed for about 3 days. Great rates, hot morning breakfast (no meat though). The older desk lady... More

This place is very rundown. There's not one part of it that doesn't need renovating. I appreciate it's a budget hotel but there is a lot better available for the money. The room was dirty and in very poor state of repair. The bathroom was in a real state with stained bath and shower which had a lot of someone's... More

I called the hotel direct and was told handicap assessable room was not offered for coupon discount. The rate quoted was $52.99, when I contacted central reservations they offered a senior discount for the same room $47.99. Apparently you can't get the senior discount unless you book with central reservations. When we arrived at the room the assessable ramp was... More

OMG...this hotel is beyond disgusting....My family and I chose to stay as they were the only hotel in the area that would let us check in after 7am and stay until the next day. My family and I were on the way to Disney from NY and were beyond tired. The rooms wrecked of mold, mildew and stale smoke. The... More

I checked in too tired to look around, although I did notice the place was old and beat. The two persons manning the counter were very pleasant. Also, my linens were clean and freshly laundered. After I a meal I brought with me, I went to sleep. It wasn't til the morning that I saw the "one" cockroach (there's no... More

I try to stay at Choice hotels whenever I can. I know that the Econo Lodge motels are low on the food chain, but I never expected such a terrible property. The carpet wasn't vacuumed and the tile was sticky. When I found cigarette ashes on the toilet, I went in search of a housekeeper. Her cart was two doors... More

My friend and I checked into this hotel early hours of the morning following a long drive from Florida. The woman on the reception was hostile, abrupt and unwelcoming. We were unhappy to find the room extremely hot and smelling like urine. We put the air conditioning on which helped a little but it was not a nice welcome to... More
