This hotel was dated, overhead tiles missing, cozy beds, near shopping, good breakfast, and nice staff. Wifi was not good. TV was old and only 30 channels. No pool. Some rooms have mold. Bathroom was a little yuck, and there was hair in the bathtub.

It was very reasonable however it is bare bones for the room. We did have everything we needed to stay but it is not fancy. The coffee pot looked a little dirty inside. Wood at doorway to bathroom was rotted at the bottom.

Average older Econo Lodge . Did have a Nice Refrigerator with large Freezer. But bedding was old and comforter in need of cleaning. Basic" Bread" Breakfast. Overall an O.K. Stay if you are looking for a Budget Room.

Large modern room, King bed, microwave / large fridge / freezer, very clean, super soft towels, very good bed. Wonderful value at $52. Far too good to be an econolodge. All good, no bad. It's odd not find anything wrong with this brand, but the only minor issue was a random computer problem during check-in that took 15 minutes to... More

Nothing special, older motel, breakfast was only a waffle maker and some muffins...but the room was clean, the front desk ladies were smiling, polite and very helpful. Received a good rate on Hotwire. Was there on a Friday and Saturday night and few cars in the parking lot.

Stay away from this place, rooms suck, internet sucks, screams at all hours. Stay very far away..This place is dirty, smelly, and noisy. I could get no work done, the internet may have been dial-up, it actually was that bad. I would stay 50 miles away to avoid staying here.

We paid double the next night for an equivalent room at a large chain which did not have as god wifi and was not more comfortable. Place is old, but clean and well maintained. Breakfast was minimal, but for the price what more could you want?

Our room was not cleaned after the last guests. Toothpaste in the sink and makeup on the pillow cases. Hair everywhere. Spider webs on the walls. Some type of small dead bug in the bed. The only reason it got 2 stars is because it was cheap and had a decent free breakfast. Bring your own linen if you stay... More

What a dump. You could here loading trucks all night long. Room was bare bones, felt grimy. Continental breakfast was 3 English muffins, orange or apple and waffle maker. Small plastic cups for waffle batter also served as juice cups. Got rebuked by manager when I used their small Styrofoam cup for coffee with juice.

The people working there were really nice. Unfortunately the room had some issues - sparking electrical sockets, noisy exhaust fans and while the room was clean, the furniture had stained seat cushions. The lodge is scheduled for renovations - and they are certainly needed!
