“Not that bad”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2009

The manager is a nice guy and he gave you a fair rate based on the availability in other motels. I think that all of the reviews saying he was rude must be written by people who have a hard time accepting others. He is hard to understand because he is middle eastern, but he was the most polite hotel clerk I think I've ever met. There's free coffee in the morning, tho the office smells bad. Considering that it is the only motel in town that costs less than $80/night, I really don't think all of these complaining reviews are necessary. You get what you see, and it's obvious that one of the buildings is condemned and the pool is messed up. You can see this before checking in. There were no bed bugs in the room I rented and there WAS a micro/fridge and full cable. Don't let these reviewers scare you away talking about 'skin conditions.' If you read up on bedbugs you see that they are in fact rather big and visible to the naked eye. It's not wonderful, and if you want wonderful than you have to pay the higher price.

What a mess!! The room carpet was filthy, the bathroom was not clean and the bottom sheet on the bed had either mold or mildew, the lamp shade was ripped and resting on the light bulb, the air conditioning didn't work very well and was very noisy and the outside of the building needs a lot of maintenance. The coffee pot in the lobby was white plastic tunrned brown from coffee stains and was sitting on a coffee-stained towel. I was changed more than $90 for this mess. After a pretty heated exchange, I was able to get a full refund. I emailed Econo Lodge to complain and was told this location is not affiliated with Choice Hotels.

Terrible! Stayed there three years ago and still have some terrible skin condition that I acquired that night in their bed. In retrospect sleeping in my car would have been the far more preferable option. I wouldn't wish this hotel on my worst enemy.........

The WORST night I've ever had in a hotel...The staff was rude, unfriendly, They quoted me a one night price of $112, when I protested, they said, OK $90. What happened to the posted $61?

The room was appalling. The A/C leaked, there were stains in the carpet and furniture,. In the middle of August, the A/C clanged all night and didn't cool...
In the morning when I went to the office to check out, there was a man sleeping on a mattress behind the desk area...

I will tell all my friends about the place....

We were very displeased with the Motel. The first thing we did was have clean bedspread put on the beds. They looked like they had never been washed since being put on the beds. The more we looked around the dirtier we could see the room was. We discovered that there was no hot water. When we requested the manager he came and said someone else in the Motel was probably taking a shower. One of the lamps did not work. We tried a bulb but the bulb was not the problem.We had one wash cloth for two people. We left and went to another Motel in the area. My suggestion is that the whole thing be torn down. When the new Motel is finished you will not have many customers. We also found it very hard to communicate with the manager because of his inability to speak much English. We would never stay in that Motel again. Carl and Sue Yates

It was so terrible, filthy, very bad odor and very rude staff in the office. We went home after the fair concert instead of staying, the air conditioning didn't work, the bathroom fixtures were so corroded and horrible. I asked for a refund and they refused, didn't even consider giving us a refund!!!!!!!! Beware of this place and the picture they provide it is very deceiving.

We had a confirmed reservation (via confirmation number and verbal communication directly with manager 2 days prior to our scheduled check-in) during the State Fair. Upon arrival, that confirmed reservation had mysteriously been given away. The people at the front desk were rude, completely unprofessional, offered no sympathy and simply did not care that they were causing an inconvenience to a family of 4 (our kids were 5 and not quite 2 at the time). We had needed 3 nights, finally got in on the last night...with NO apologies from them. Once we got in, we wished we were still camping in our cattle trailer--it was much cleaner than that joke of a room. The rooms were dirty, there was a huge gap all the way around the front door. The bathtub and sink were in horrible shape. I will NEVER stay in this dump again.

  • Liked — That it only lasted one night!
  • Disliked — Condition of the room and lack of a friendly staff.
