Although it doesn't look like much, it was a decent one night stay for me. The room was small, but it was clean, warm and quiet. Hotel staff were not particularity friendly or nasty; they simply did their job competently. I would stay here again, especially since it is so reasonably priced. However, I imagine it could get pretty noisy... More

We were stranded in Blasdell during 'Snowvember 2014' and ended up at the Econolodge as it was the only choice other than the town shelter. Expectations were not high, but anything was better than sleeping in either the car or the town fire hall. We arrived and from the second we walked into the lobby the staff was friendly, helpful,...

This motel doesn't have great curb appeal, but don't let that fool you. The rooms were large, clean and comfortable. Only problem was the room was too warm and the air was stuffy with no way to improve it.

This hotel is outdated and the breakfast they have is not worth even call it a breakfast. It is a why bother, and not even a attempt. The rooms were cleaned every day and did a pretty good job. Carpets are stained and need to be cleaned better. Heating and cooling system did not work well. Room hotter than heck... More

Priced average for motel . Wifi worked perfectly. Felt safe was a Friday night but was very quite . Fairly clean in the right spots I guess don't look behind the dresser lol . Not a huge deal but would suggest the management get the staff to vacuum behind them. We were in room with 2 doubles the beds were... More

We were heading cross country with our pets, and needed a place for a few hours rest. The hotel was perfect, clean, easy off and on to I 90. The beds and pillows were comfortable. The cooling unit however, made some really funky sighing and groaning noises. Overall, pretty OK!

Stayed here one night when coming back from Boston. Clean comfortable room for a reasonable price. The hotel is old and dated but this is an economy hotel. Good for one night .Pleasant staff ample parking.

We stayed here for one night, and were pleasantly surprised. The room was clean and roomy. No complaints about the bed. Like a few other reviews, the room had a cleaning smell when we first arrived, but it disappeared when we turned the AC up some and were out of the room for a while. Only one minor problem was...

I stayed here last weekend with family. The place was renovated, the large room was spacious, very clean. Parking space was not big enough, had to park a little far at night. When checking out, they did not give any extra time. It is fair enough but I can always use some extra time with the packing and getting kid... More

I arrived at this hotel on August 2, 2014, and the overpowering smell of what may have been very dirty carpet cleaning solution hit me at the door. I had to immediately leave the door open while bringing items in from the car. From there, I left the fan system running all night, instead of the A/C. The smell was... More
