After staying 4 nights in choice hotels 2 fer 1 deal and attending a wedding in Hackettstown NJ, we drove a good hour on I-80 to get a start on way home to Mi. And beat the approaching hurricane Sandy.
Made a mistake by booking a smoking room but for free this room was huge, 2
bedrooms and a kitchen. As per one tripadvisor comment, sliding front glass door was unlocked(have feeling this was a no name resort wannabe before Zchoice bought it)
Beds were hard as a rock and not the cleanest bath. But tough to sleep in the smoky smell. Slept maybe 3-4 hrs and hit the road. Passed hundreds of power company trucks headed east for Sandy hurricane.
Parking lot well lit,wooden walk boards to rooms not too strong.wierd place but price was right. Would stay in a non smoking room and worth $50 IMHO for 1 night stay if in area for race or skiing.
Wife said young man at check in was super friendly and a firefighter and was preparing to aid in the on coming hurricane. His 1st day on job. Well done young man and thanks for serving.11 pm check in.
I believe the man mentioned in other posts came at 5 am when we picked up phone to check out and took our key, seemed nice to us.
Went McDonald's a few miles down road for bf.
Would probably try the Comfort inn next to McDonald's and 80 exit next time if had to stay in White Have /Blakeslee area, this econolodge was 5 or 6 miles off the exit but as I said the price was right.
