“You know you've hit rock bottom when Econo Lodge pulls its label”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2010

This property is now a part of that wonderful chain, America's Best Value Inns. Just imagine a 1970s Econo Lodge that is worn out and you'll get the picture here. The owners have apparently made the decision to milk the last dollars out of this property before they are forced to demo it. Room does not allow a full recitation of the deficiencies here--filthy, broken, and sleazy sums it up. The front desk people, oddly enough are very nice and accommodating--maybe they feel guilty. Avoid this place; take your chances on a no-name bargain motel rather than spend your money here.

I am so sorry to hear about your stay here. I would like to let you know we have recently renovated the property and are still undergoing changes. As well as new management on site this year. We are improving every service to make it the best. Please come see us again sometime, and be our guests. I am confident you will be happy with the new additions. Thank you and take care!
