Nice appearance, great price, good location. It's not a horrible place to stay but I hope that the Manager/Owner takes some of this advice. (Sam Desai, general manager, replied to a comment on July 4, 2006 about a guests stay on July 5, 2005 (commented in Aug 2005: in this reply he said they are new management, have fully renovated & appreciate the comments) Sam, here's mine!
My husband & I stayed for one night @ this Econolodge in a King Smoking Suite. this is one of the newer 2-story buildings on the property) For starters, we pulled up to our building & exited the car, we were greeted by RM 141's barking dog who was left alone until the evening, & whose owners were gone again by 8am the next morning, again leaving the dog alone to bark at every car door, room door or other random noise it heard.
We were glad we brought our own pillows!!!! the 3 provided for our king bed were sooooo lumpy it felt like the cheapest polyester fluff. The 'Fitted' sheet was a flat sheet that was just barely large enough to cover the matress from head to foot so by morning was everywhere & we were on the bare mattress. the cover quilt looked like it was from the 80's, the fleece blanket had many holes burned in it, and the headboard wasn't fully attached to anything b/c it kept knocking on the wall everytime you touched it.
the kitchen & bathroom faucets sprayed everywhere when turned on due to poor handle movement (hard to turn on so it's not gushing & spraying back at you).
Unseasonably warm temperatures for March 29 made me want to open the window for some much needed ventilation, only to find that one of the side windows of our livingroom bay window was locked from the outside, and the other was BROKEN & wouldn't fully shut!!!
carpets weren't bad, couch had no support in the back rest part, i sat down, leaned back & almost hit wood. the fabric was all puffed out with no cushion behind it!
some of our lights had no bulbs, the bathroom smelled moldy (& my allergies could tell) probably caused by the showerhead that wasn't screwed/attached onto the main pipe well enough. i twisted it on more just so that my shower would be more powerful with fewer random sprays over towards the sink.....
all-in-all very interesting experience, not too bad for a $50 suite, however they could try cleaning more throughly & stop making half-done repairs (hire a contractor). I'd give it another try due to the price (for the location & amount of space), but I will be fighting for my $$ back if things aren't slightly better.
