“Nice Quiet Clean Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 weeks ago

Nice, reasonable, quiet place to stay. Our room was nice and clean and quiet. The manager, Paktnl (sp?) was very nice and accomodating. Room was redone rather recently. They had the typical breakfast buffet and everything was fresh. Not a lot of choices but plenty for us. They did not have Decaf coffee but the manager made a pot special for us in no time. We will be sure to stay here again in our travels down south or back north.

Room was okay. Nothing special. Nice to have the fridge.

My biggest gripe: I was quoted one price but my credit card was charged a higher price. When I requested a receipt when checked out. The desk clerk could not seem to print one (he was trying to adjust the charge). He promised to send receipt via email.
It's been more than two weeks and still no receipt even after I've tried contacting them first by telephone and multiple emails.

Shower ceiling fall into bathtub blocking the drain. Room smelled. Very small room with no closet, hitting the hangers as you get out of bed. Room was dirty. Light switches were very dirty, not cleaned in years. Hair left on bathroom floor from previous guest. Desk people were very nice and competent. Exterior sign stated recently renovated. They missed the room we used. WI-FI was very weak in the room. The price was ok for an Econo Lodge, if the ceiling was not falling and the light switches were cleaned. They may have given us a "newly renovated" room and gotten a better review. ******************************************************************** Will stay away from other Econo Lodges because of this experience.

We were pleasantly surprised by the nice clean room we received for the price. The TV, Fridg, Micro, etc. All seems to be new. Also the carpet. It is still an old motel but it's obvious that someone is trying to make it comfortable. The Breakfast was adequate. The service fast and friendly. I would definitely stay here again. Also the location is nice, lots of restaurants.

Room Tip: Our parking spot was under the stairs. Try to avoid this so you can load/unload easier.

Been there a couple of times and liked it very much. Will go back again. Was on my way back to Canada, traveling from Georgia. Hotel was nice and very affordable. Liked the surroundings also, nice town, quiet and friendly.

The location was convenient, I thought I would give it a try as it was inexpensive. It was not bad for the price. The downside, I had a king size bed but two very small flat pillows so nothing to lean up against when trying to sit up in bed and use laptop. There was one small window but it was so filthy that you couldn't see out of it. It might have been a film on the inside that can only be fixed by replacing the window. There were a lot of people sitting outside their room on the balcony drinking beer so it was a bit loud also.

The hotel is conveniently located off the interstate and offers affordable accommodations, but leaves some to be desired. The bathroom was not very clean - lots of stray hairs - and the bed was very uncomfortable. The continental breakfast did not provide many options. The lock on the door was also broken.
