This hotel is a courtyard style with outside room entrances. It is in dire need of renovation. However, the price was very low and the room was reasonably clean. There was a fridge, microwave, a nice TV, free wi-fi and a safe. The staff was friendly. The breakfast was mediocre.

Stay away! Should be demolished! Roaches, dirty, no lights, seems to be a shady hangout, broken items, very poor to no house keeping. I demanded a refund after trying two room. After reading the owner's responses to other reviews, he does absolutely nothing to address the issues! Should be torn down! DO NOT STAY HERE!

I did not notice that the room was not very clean because the lighting was very dim. I found 2 cockroaches, the sheets had something on them. The light over the sink was very hard to get to turn on, and there was debri on the floor. I didn't notice all of this until morning. The breakfast was decent.

I was very disappointed in the hotel, the bottom of the pool had a lot of algae in it. The check in was ok, the clerk was very friendly. We booked through hotels.com and the totals didn't match up, I was charged more than I was supposed to be. When I asked it was for the use of the safe,...

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....

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...

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...

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...
