While this is an older location it is still better than some of the name brand hotels near by the reason why is they do not put on air's. I had a clean bed and the breakfast offered was a bit sparse but on a cold morning it's better than nothing. Drive up the road a bit and you'll find... More

For the price I paid this was OK for just the night. There is not really anything in the area, its down some back street. The rooms was ok, didn't look totally clean. The bathroom floor could have been cleaned a lot better. Pillows were not that great. If on a budget for a short time this place may work.

I was traveling with a friend who booked the room as a pit stop. When we arrived and entered our room neither of us wanted to stay. It was almost midnight however so we were determined to stay. There was a distinct odor that I just couldnt place and a few stains on the sheets. Luckily we brought our own... More

I can't believe that the previous reviewers stayed at the same hotel as I did. I have stayed at this property several times throughout the years. My last visit was several years back. I wasn't sure what I'd find, based on the current reviews. But, I was pleasantly surprised! First, the location is near the highway, but in a quiet... More

We booked a room for one night... when walking in to the hotel the hallways smelled like someone or something had died. We got to our room and OMG..... it hadnt been cleaned or dusted in I dont know how long. There were cobwebs on the lights and from the night stand between the beds to the beds. no light... More

I've never written a review on here, but this was so awful I feel people need to know. We stayed here overnight while in town for a concert. I didn't expect much given the price. However the conditions were horrendous. The whole place reeked of cigarettes including the room. The room and corridors were filthy. What looked like vomit was... More

When I read what people write I wonder: what do they expect from an Econo Lodge?? When I stay in a relatively cheap hotel I look for cleanliness and comfort. Does it matter that it looks outdated and that the curtains are a bit worn? No! Our room was clean. The walls looked like they had recently been painted. The... More

Could use a make-over sometime soon but clean and decent. Located just opposite the US Mail garages, so a bit noise should be anticipated. Friendly staff. Nothing really bad to say, just a bit dull and worn.

I have stayed here 3-4 times when passing through town on a 12 hour ride. While it is set back from the main road a little, it's only 2 minutes away from route 80. The exterior and stairwells do not look great, but my room is always clean. Nice size room. Interior entrance to rooms. Doors lock well. My room... More

On the plus side, the room was clean and the staff was helpful but the facility needs an entire renovation. The side door to the rooms never locked and could be a safety issue. The price was right but spend a little more money on a nicer facility.
