“Cheap hotel”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012 via mobile

What do you expect from a cheap hotel? The toilet seat was an elongated but the toilet was round, so the toilet rim is exposed inside the seat. Otherwise seedy but clean and livable for one night. Upper floors serviced by elevators. Lots of good restaurants across I-40.

First room we had the tv didn't work. Staff was very nice and brought us another tv. THAT tv didn't work either. The staff was very friendly and accomendating and moved us to another room. The second room was very run down. Old and out dated. The caulk in the tub was molded badly, but nothing they couldn't have put some bleach on. The room looked like it hadn't been occupied in a good while as everything was very dusty. They say you pay for what you get but I've paid less and had better so I'm not impressed with this at all. The ONLY good thing is it was in a good location, but again wouldn't recommend it!

It took the ac unit till 3am to cool the room down and just when we got into a good sleep the fire/smoke detector started to emit a sharp sound every minute this started at 5am.the room was relatively clean and bed cofortable.

I actually wrote a review for this Econolodge in 2009 when we stayed over on our way to visit our son in Colorado. We had a good experience then, so I didn't even consider anywhere else when we visited him again last week. The Econolodge is conveniently located off of I40, and the lobby is well lighted, the desk clerks quite friendly. Our room had a king sized bed, pullout couch, refrigerator, microwave, and small coffeemaker. We needed the pullout couch, as we were traveling with our granddaughter, but there were no linens or pillows. We informed the front desk, and they were brought up within half an hour. We would have liked the bathroom to be cleaner, especially the toilet, which was stained and moldy. Likewise, the refrigerator racks were rusted and dirty, and the carpet badly stained. The breakfast area is large with a pretty standard "continental" breakfast served, but we found many of the selections stale - the biscuits, the donuts, the bread for toast. The air conditioning had not been turned on, and with the high temperature that day above 100 degrees, our room was stifling when we arrived at nearly 10:00 p.m. We turned the A/C on high, but it was nearly 6:00 a.m. before it really cooled off in the room (we had to be up at 6:30). My husband actually pulled the bedspread right in front of the A/C and slept on the floor, while I tossed and sweated all night. I complained the next morning that I really didn't see the point in paying for a place to sleep if we couldn't sleep. I am not a wasteful person, but when the temperature is that high, the rooms that have been reserved really should have the A/C turned on by 6:00 to allow the room to cool enough for people to sleep. It's an Econolodge, and I don't expect the Ritz, but there are a number of places on the same exit and in the vicinity that advertise comparable prices, and if we choose to visit our son again, we will choose one of them. We would rather stay where it is cleaner and in a better state of upkeep.

This motel had dirty rooms, period. The in-room refrigerator and microwave had sticky smudge all over, the bathroom had previous guests hair all around. No screen on the patio door, which by the way had a view of the swimming pool which was out of order and half empty with fetid water. Could be a fun place to stay while traveling, but needs to be cleaned up!

Choice better get their name off of the front of this building before properties like this ruin their reputation.I was so appalled when we pulled into the motel after booking online and seen that the pictures were not representative of the motel at all. The clerk at the front desk was a man that had not shaved in three or four days,all the lights were turned out in the lobby that were not being used ( wasn't very inviting ), the landscaping had weeds growing in the flower beds, the pool had no water except for a little sludge in the bottom, the smell inside the building was indescribable and there are no words in the million plus english language for the room. Needless to say I checked out and went across the street to Quality Inn.

When making reservations for our group of 12 (3 rooms) we were not informed of the many problems the hotel was facing. Upon arrival we were informed that there was a problem with the water; not by hotel employees but the repair man. On the way to the room the hotel wrecked of standing water, mildew, and mold. When we entered into the room we were appalled at the filthy condition of the room. Not only was the carpet stained and dirty but the bathroom was filthy. When we asked the hotel emploee what we could do to rectify the problem he simply sent up cleaner and a towel. Not to mention there was NO HOT WATER!! When moved into the "renovated" segment of the hotel we thought we were entering a sauna! The AC did not work the halls and our room had dirty towels in the dresser drawer. The hotel only had one maid that obviously lived on site and failed to thoroughly clean the rooms! Do not stay at this hotel! If given a month free I still would not stay here! The standard in which this hotel is maintained makes Choice Hotels look horrific in the eyes of its patrons.
