“Big mistake”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

I usually stay at Comfort Inn or Quality Inn. On this trip we needed a place quick and chose the Econo Lodge. Never again. Gaps around the doors. overnight staff acted like i was asking them a favor to take my money. Hot & cold were reversed on the sink. Luckily we were only there for about 6 hours, enough to sleep & leave.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

Beds were comfortable and this hotel has seen an upgrade since it was originally built. Linens had a clean smell and the bathroom area was clean too. This is one of Econo Lodge's better franchise properties. It's convenient to I-10 too. The rates tend to be too high during the weekend due to the casino travelers. I was reminded this was a typical motel, when someone knocked on my door loudly at 11:00 AM to announce it's check-out time.

Room Tip: Choose a room that is in the back and away from the busy traffic on US-49.

Finish a long drive from Texas and this motel provided a good nights sleep. Price was reasonable. My wife said "It's not right that a motel would have a Krispy Creme donut shop next door". Dare you not to buy one the next morning when you get up.

Stayed here in july for a weekend and the hotel was perfect for our needs and meet our expectations. Everything was clean inside and outside, staff was pleasent and check in was fast and simple and they actually had my reservation correct for a non smoking too which was great.

We had a good overall experience staying here for 3 days. The room was clean and smelled good but we had to buy a freshener for the bathroom because it was obvious someone had been smoking like a chimney in there. Not the manager fault. Anyway, our fridge didn't work properly so they brought us a whole new fridge/micro unit and it was fine. Those are small problems you could experience anywhere. I was pleased to notice the maids hauling out the comforters to be cleaned because i think we all have our doubts about how often they are cleaned, if ever. The pool was very small but no one is in it in the mornings so it was okay. Clean as well. Now to the big one: i didn't see ONE roach or any kind of bug the whole time. We've stayed lots of places and that is a first! I would stay here again.

We came in town for a wedding and had to get a hotel last minute. Everything was already booked for Friday night and this was one of the few we had for Friday and thirs. The bed was comfy, the Ac worked great, the breakfast was ok, the water pressure was alright, and overall the room was clean. It was average for a lasts ute bOoking.
