“Nice motel at a truck stop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

Hotel is actually directly behind a truck stop and the entrance is in the truck stop parking lot. Once you maneuver your way to the hotel, it is quite nice. Outside is very clean and kept up. Checked in very late and staff was nice and helpful. When I got to my room I went to close the curtains and they fell off, rod and all. I called front desk and said it would be fixed first thing in the morning and did I want to change rooms. Tired from a long drive I said I would just set them on the hooks (make do) until morning. The room was average for an economy hotel but very clean. The sheets and comforter smelt exceptionally clean. There was a coffee maker, microwave, fridge and iron and ironing board.
As promised a nice gentleman was there bright and early to fix the curtains for my additional two day stay.
The breakfast was very small with cereal, mini muffins and apples but a Cracker Barrel restaurant was right across the street.
All in all this was a nice place to stay for the price. I would recommend for those on a budget.

Better than expectations. This hotel was clean comfortable with friendly staff and a decent breakfast. After traveling coast to coast this has been the best place to stay in this price range. The only negative would be not enough tables in breakfast area.

We just stopped for overnight on the way to Florida. Saw the reviews so thought we would give it a shot. Reservations were easy through Choice Hotels. Only 2 bad things and they are pretty minor. We did get a senior discount of 5% but you do need to request it. The first bad thing was the location. Soon as you get off be sure to turn right onto what doesn't appear to be a street but is. Just behind truck stop. The staff were friendly and the lobby, hotel room, and even the parking lot were clean. We had a king room. Mattress very firm but not uncomfortable. Standard amenities. The 2nd bad thing but really not unexpected for the price was no hot breakfast. Krispy Creme donuts, cereal, bread and bagels for toasting. Orange juice, cranberry juice, coffee,& milk. Packaged blueberry muffins and apples. I will stay there again if we come back that way. We paid less than $60 tax included. One more thing was by the ice maker & coke machine there is a washer and dryer for your use with change.

My daughter and I stayed here while we were on our way to take a cruise. The hotel was basic but clean and we felt safe there. Our room had a microwave and frig and the AC worked well. Check in was fast and easy and there was a continental breakfast the next morning. The only problem we had was finding the property-we drove right past it at first even though we had the address. We approached it from Hwy 49 heading south and missed it. Hotel actually sits west of the highway and the sign wasn't as visible as I expected. You have to exit the highway and drive through a large parking lot to get to it from our direction. It was quiet and we didn't have any problems. Would stay here again if in the area.

This hotel is very basic but it a good and safe place to stop while traveling. We were traveling from Florida to Nevada and stopped here for a night of rest. The hotel is right off of the highway and is easy to get to. The room was clean, there was free wi-fi, lighted parking and a continental type breakfast buffet in the morning. For the price, I can't complain, I had a good night sleep and a hot shower in the morning.

Stopped over on our way to Gulf Shores. Check in was quick and front desk was friendly. Room was clean. The motel was full, but noise wasn't an issue even with out room on the lower level. Nice little breakfast in the morning (Krispy Kreme donuts, muffins, toast, cereal, juice, milk, coffee...). The motel is tucked away on a service road so it was a little tricky to find. Overall, very good for the price. Would return.

First thing we noticed as we pulled into the Econo Lodge, was a gathering of young adults in the parking lot, maybe 10-12, who had rooms there. It looked like it was going to be a party night. That was a concern. As it turned out, we were able to get a good nights sleep with very minimal noise.
The rooms are very basic and ours was outdated. The girl at the reception desk was not real friendly either so thats not a good start.

We would not stay again.
