This was clean which is what we wanted since just passing thru. Needed laundry so this was perfect. The best thing is the front desk person Ashton. She goes out if her way to help. Room was large enough for the two of us. Has a king bed, two end tables, dresser, microwave, frig and tv. Also sofa and table.... More

We were on our way home from visiting family and this was the last stop before heading home. We pulled up late in at night so we didn't get to see too much of the outside but what we could see of the front was not too bad. The young lady working the front desk was very nice and got... More

We stopped to get a room late at night on our way home from visiting family. I requested a non smoking room and got a room that smelled like it had been smoked in. The front of the a/c unit fell off when I adjusted the temperature. The carpet is disgusting, two of the lamps in the room did not... More

Economy Lodge had run out of non-smoking rooms, which was surprising since the parking lot was far from full. The room I ended up with was foul with old cigarette odor and carpeting seemed stained and dirty. The bed wasn't bad, the continental breakfast minimal, but the highly advertised deepest pool in town was under reconstruction. Should have spent a... More

We were looking for an affordable place to sleep at 1:30 am, we grabbed a coupon book at the rest stop and decided that we would give the econo lodge a try. (It was $48) the photos on line didn't look to bad. The cleanest thing in our room is the toilet. Shower is dirty, carpet is beyond dirty and... More

As many others have stated....pass this one up. I was passing thru and could not pass up a deal on the price. It was better than others within the Choice Hotel Chain. However, here, there seems to be some readily needed modernizations to the accommodations. It would seem as though I had one which was updated...does any one with a... More

I was shocked and appalled to say the lease. If we had just looked at a review because I am telling you, they are all bad but true! I will start by saying the young man at the desk was so nice...I felt sorry for him as its not his fault. Top ten reasons why you should not stay there:1.... More
