My husband and I travel extensively, from Montana to Maine, and stay in a wide variety of hotels/motels. We look for a reasonable price and good value, and realize that you get what you pay for! That said, we have certain brands we avoid based on our experiences, and Econo Lodge is one of them. However, this property got good reviews, so we thought we'd give it a whirl. We wanted to use the hot tub after driving all day, but arrived just as the pool area closed for the night, so instead we upgraded to a jacuzzi suite since the price was decent. As luck would have it, the jacuzzi in our room did not work - loud noise, then it stopped and would not restart. The desk clerk arranged for us to move to the room next door, but we found that room was not clean, so we chose to stay put. Not a good experience, but stuff happens. On the plus side: the room was spacious, fairly clean; tub/shower was well lit, with a retractable clothesline (nice perk!); adjustable night light on the hair dryer wall mount (thumbs up!). On the down side: the mattress had collapsed on one side, so we shared half a bed; the fridge was tiny; the toilet seat would not stay up on its own; furniture was beat up; heating/cooling unit was battered but did work; no healthy choices at breakfast (fruit, etc). Kudos to the manager, he gave us a sizable discount when he heard our tale of woe, but that's not enough to bring us back. No value here.
