The room was very very very hot- you could not turn the heat down. The room had a fan the was attached the the room light, so when you turn light out, the fan was off. I complaint several times about the heat in the room. Nothing was done. I had the window wide open and it was 19* out... More

The free shuttle arrived within 20 minutes of the free call from the airport phone bank. The driver and staff were very courteous and helpful. On this warm, 78-degree, late July day, the a/c worked well, the free Spring-Water Fountain in the lobby came in handy. Beds, Bathroom and Lobby were Clean and Comfortable; TV was old; channels were limited... More

Despite other reviews this hotel was very clean and the staff is very friendly and helpful. The only downfall to this hotel is that the walls are thin so I did hear the people above me and I could hear people going up and down the stairs. I would definitely stay here the next time I visit.

Staff very polite. Shuttle available for any time. Room confortable and price/quality ratio extremely good. And the hotel is 5 minutes walkig from downtown. I definitively recomend this hotel! Inside the hotel there is also an excellent chinese/japanese restaurant.

As my ATM card was unable to work at the airport, I could not pay for a taxi to my originally booked accommodation. Looking at my guidebook, the Econo Inn was recommended as a budget option and I could book it via the bank of phones in the airport. They arranged for the shuttle to pick me up, and it... More

This is not a hotel for travelers (wink). Holes in the wall, dirty everything, and such a creepy place it was hard to sleep. It surprises me that they book vacation travelers, since it seemed like a residence hotel that would not pass an inspection for a homeless shelter. You are truly better off sleeping in the park with the... More

We stayed here with a tour group. No heat in the rooms the first night. Night 2= too hot. One window never could open, and the one that did open the 1st night was broken the 2nd. 2 guys in our group had 2 strangers enter their room at 2am. With a key. No one's key worked for more than... More

Find your way to room 111 as there will a plentiful abundance of bed bugs to feast on your body. SICK! Pay the extra money and stay somewhere else. Don't bother trying to give them a heads up about the infestation as they will deny it. It is not worth the cost at the hospital!

This is a horrible place! Dirty, no disgusting! Really really shady characters running around. Yes the price sounds good, but you would be better off sleeping on a park bench with bears, and it would be a whole lot cleaner! Not worth risking safety...
