I guess I'm just too old, but I think for $59 a night plus taxes, the room should be nice. This room was just one full bed, with worn carpet and retouched bath tub.

1 To get a cheaper rate you booked your room upstairs. (You wanted a downstairs room) 2 During check in process, we had brought to your attention 3 times to report any problem/s with your room immediately. We would have given you a different room or refunded 100% of your money. We did not hear from you all night. 3... More

I have stayed at this Econo Lodge before, and will stay again next time I'm in the area. The prices are VERY reasonable, and much less than the other hotels close by. (Holiday Inn, Hampton) They had remodeled a lot of the rooms last time I was there, and have finished them all now. New mattresses and bedding, new pillows,... More

The title of my review may be misleading a bit because there was no storm but it was a nice find nonetheless. I happened to have stopped in this town on the eve of probably their biggest weekend; the longest garage sale in history or some none sense like that so I was lucky to have even gotten a room...

If you don't have a credit card, you can't stay here. Grounds are in disrepair and stairs are in bad shape. I suggest going elsewhere anyway as their pool is empty anyway.Poor poor poor............. poor
