The description of this place on Hotels.com was so inaccurate! It said this motel has a restaurant, an arcade/game room, a gift shop/newsstand, and a coffee shop/cafe. It had none of these!! At one time there was a gas station on the property up near the entrance road leading to the motel (which sits at the far right side). The... More

The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The check-in process was not the best. The clerk was new and did not know that room 114 was a ground floor or where it was located. The "full" breakfast ended up being a slight continental breakfast. The "onsite restaurant" was not onsite or even close.

By far the worst hotel experience I've ever had. No water in the room! (Shower did not work, toilet did not flush, sink did not work) Handle on the shower broke off, room had a used coffee cup lying on the room's desk that had not been taken out by room service, ashes in the ash tray (smoking room) and...

The place just feels bad when you drive up to it. Believe it. It took a half-hour to check in and we were rushed out very rudely. At 8 am the morning of our departure, the person who checked us in banged hard on our room door. There was no answer to our shouts of "what?" 20 minutes later, more... More

We stayed here for one night while traveling and had no problems. Check-in was easy and we had a good value. The staff that I interacted with in person were great. There are not a lot of perks here but for a budget-minded traveler it was fine. Our only complaint was the breakfast offering. I sent my husband down to... More

This property is 4-star example of a 2-star motel. While you shouldn't expect many perks from hotels catering to the budget-minded traveler, you should expect the basics and those few perks to be well-executed. This location executes very well, albeit not without a little room for improvement. I had no complaints with the basics. The room was clean and in... More

We have stayed there 3 times for the festival- each year gets worse but this year was terrible. Saturday they forget to even clean the room- beds unmade towels on floor garbage in cans. Next night made beds with sheets and blankets hanging off of beds - no cups replaced- no coffee and the hair blower didn't work for all... More

At 8:20 PM at night, I was traveling through Florida and stopped outside of Tallahassee in Monticello at this Econo lodge. I was quoted a price online (used my cell) and when I went to check in for that price the clerk told me I had to make the reservation online to get the discount. I actually called my my... More

We apologized for you not to have very comfortable stay. We were not aware of issues and we apologized. Due to oversold situation and rate yield we were able to discount the most we could. Just to assure you this is an isolated situation, we will make it absolutely perfect stay if given opportunity next time. More
