Very clean room, new floors - love the wood floors. Front desk attendants were attentive and very nice. Would like a few more options for breakfast but if that's the only complaint I have...... Definitely will stay here again.

This was the worse hotel that my family and I have EVER stayed in! The towels were dirty, the bathtub was disgusting, the sink was horrible, and the bed sheets were dirty as well! We pulled back the sheets and they were stained!!! My husband had researched the hotel before we left, and the pictures on the website were VERY... More

We read some pretty scary reviews and some ok reviews so we're unsure but we were going to a festival without our kids and booked 2 rooms at a time when the area is pretty booked. So we got for 55. Per night what a great price. Well if you have ever read my reviews you know I'm picky and... More

Their pool was nice and clean!!! I won't mind coming back next time I visit :-) Their room was clean and the air condition work pretty good. Room service made sure I had everything I needed to feel comfortable (towels and etc.).

Well this is the worst experience I have ever had at a Choice Hotel. Had numerous problems to many to list. Just stay away!!!! It is all about the money. They have little respect for their customers and felt like i was discriminated against because of my race. Make other choices while in the Lake City area.

Room was clean. Hotel was reasonably priced. Staff needs some training in customer service. Hotel is adequate for those passing through for one night. Did not stay late enough in the morning to see what they offered for breakfast. Lobby was small, so i can assume that it is not more than danish and coffee.

Were passing through on the way to Florida and needed a place to spend the night. Everything was full but this place had a room. The front desk person was very professional friendly. The big thing is that Choice Hotels have taken over this chain and the place did not resemble the old Econo Lodge place once you got inside.... More

We have always stayed at the Red Roof at this exit (which seems to have disappeared), but we're so glad we found the EconoLodge!! The pet area is perfect - grassy, shady, well away from traffic and stocked with pick-up bags and a trash receptacle!! The motel itself is older, but seemed very clean and well maintained. There is a... More

The location of this hotel is perfect for ease of finding it and most every restaurant you would want is within 2 or 3 miles. The rooms are nicely appointed and are clean.

On my trip to WI my son and I stopped here for one night. I found a roach in the bathroom! I almost packed up and left immediately but we were tired. I refused to make coffee or eat at their breakfast knowing they had roaches.
