Will not be staying here ever again. This was the most worst experience ever. While I was there only 5 minutes at the front desk and the clerk was making a deal with a couple who looked like they were running a scam or something. I was not offered the same deal by the clerk. I think there is a...

I booked this hotel but did not look at the reviews. My boyfriend did read the reviews and he said that we would 'look at the room' prior to staying. The WONDERFUL young lady at the desk took us to our room. She was so delightful and friendly! The room was 'old' but she explained to us that it is...

I visited this hotel Labor Day weekend with friends. We had the room booked for the night after we visited Six Flags. When we found out where our room was we headed that way. Immediately as we entered the hallway, all we heard was screaming and fighting between different people in a bunch of the rooms. We got to our...

When I first called in the morning I spoke to someone who couldn't do the reservations but took my info down and said since I was staying for 2 weeks he'd have...

This is the worst motel I've ever been in. The halls smelled musty, and the room smelled like something rotten. The bed sheets were stained, as were the walls and the mirrors were dirty. There was what appeared to be a vomit stain crusted on one of the mattresses. The air didn't work very well, as it said it was...

When I think of an Econo Lodge, I have certain expectations and this location falls short. The building and rooms are old and in need of renovation. The cleanliness is questionable and everything smells like cigarette smoke. This hotel has many more long term residents than short stay hotel guests.
