I had to find a place quick and as everyone usually does, I resorted to my mobile phone to find a room. I was on business and it was Thanksgiving weekend. I was skeptical since Flint doesn't have the best reputation. This place looked a bit shady but I kept my hopes up since I've stayed in all sorts of places. I will not lie, the staff was incredible. The young lady at the front desk took care of me at check in and was extremely quick. It was Thanksgiving day and I ended up playing a show and I was unable to eat turkey. When I came back she was so kind that she offered me a warm meal. NEVER did I ever think that I would end up having Thanksgiving dinner at an Econolodge in Flint, MI! Hahaha! I thought that was very sweet of her. Now, was the place impeccable? Of course not. Like I said, it's not the Waldorf Astoria. I got what I paid for. The room was decent. I needed a place to sleep and shower that had safe parking and that's what i got. The heater may not have been working 100% and it did get cold but the front desk personnel was quick to issue me a space heater and hand me extra blankets. I was addressed by my name and asked if I was comfortable every time I came across an employee. My car was safe, I got a muffin and some juice in the morning and I was able to shower and sleep in a semi comfortable bed. Even though the room was cold and it wasn't the most comfortable bed in the world, the attitude of the personnel made up for that and more. I've been to places where I pay for the name of the hotel and the front desk person has a negative vibe, not at this place. Jennifer, I believe that's what her name was, was very sweet and attentive. If you need a place to crash for the night, I'd say, check this place out. It's easy access to the highway and it's down the street from a cool Coney Island which is a staple in those parts. If you want want a place that's way better, then cough up some more dough! For the price, it's not bad.
