Everything was clean and well maintained. When we arrived we were upgraded to a king Jacuzzi suite. The upgrade was free but it cost $20 to turn on the jacuzzi. That wasn't important to us but it seemed pretty cheap of them to do that. Everything was clean and quiet. We had a good time.I would stay there again.

We were at the end of a tiring vacation and I was so pleased with our stay at Econo Lodge. We got in rather late but the clerk was pleasant, the room was clean (and no smoke smell) as were the grounds and walkways. I was not aware of other travelers or traffic noise and was able to sleep in until 8:30 (as did my daughter, who is notorius for waking at the first noise). Fresh coffee and juice and we were on our way again.

The place has a great location and the price is reasonable enough. The managers don't speak or understand much English. We had a room with a jacuzzi tub and TV in the bathroom that I got all psyched out to try, had my glass of wine, filled the tub and then almost broke my neck trying to reach the tiny tv and to my dismay, it did not work so I thought, ok, so what, I will relax in the jetted tub but to my dismay, it didn't work either. I asked the manager about it and was told " no work" and that was that.
Breakfast was day old donuts and terrible coffee and juice.
I will stay there again because it is near relatives and the price is right but I would not want to stay there for a real vacation.

Dirtiest hotel ever. The wifi only worked in certain areas of the hotel room, so you couldn't sit in bed with your laptop to use it. There was no iron. There was a bloodstain on the comforter and brown stains that looked like feces on the blanket. Loud fan in the bathroom. The owner/night desk worker was creepy.
