Yes, it's out of the way, the closest restaurant is a Wendy's, it's long in the tooth, and it looks like its best days are past, but I've stayed here three times and the rooms have been clean, the motel is quiet, and it's cheap. If you are looking for an overnight stop near the Poconos, this place is adequate.... More

This was one of our worst hotel stays that we have ever had. The hotel was located in an out of the way street, away from any amenities that this city may have. The hotel is dirty and old and the parking lot is also pretty shabby. When we arrived to check in there were all kinds of people hanging... More

We stopped here to sleep on the way to New York City. I had low expectations and was actually surprised at how nice and clean it was for a pit stop hotel. Great location to stop and sleep. Was cheap and convenient!

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 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
