The Econo Lodge actually in Blasdel, New York just south of Lackawanna is in a great location. It is on Milestrip Road just off the New York State Thruway and located quite close to the large and sprawling Quaker Malls!! You have a great selection of restaurants in the immediate area which is quite nice.
I guess I am used to a newer type of hotel / motel, as this is what I remember Motels to be like back in the sixties and seventies!!
The rooms are very small yet some how efficient and clean. The bathroom was very small but functioned well. The room ac was a bit loud and the room curtain did not close completely. The ice machine on the ground floor was working well, so all-in-all everything at this motel was functioning, except that bloody curtain.
The most negative was the lack of security...I simply did not feel safe in the room or the parking lot. Nothing happened but it was the 'sense' of an insecure nature about the entire property. It did not help to see a police car at the reception desk upon checking in...I said to myself "oh boy what am I doing"? False alarm as the police officer was simply booking a future room for a relative.
The "European Breakfast" was nice if you enjoy sweet donuts, the hot water for the tea was hot!! The best part of this stay was the price!! Very, very reasonable, again it reminded me of the prices used back in the sixties and seventies!!
You have no recent hotel searches.
