We had been driving for hours, tired and figured we had another hour drive, decided to just stay for the night. Charged me $101 because we didn't reserve the room. They gave us a room... More

I've stayed at this hotel in the past & had problems with my stay. After reporting my experiences with Choice's management, most of the problems have been corrected. I say almost because this time the room phone wasn't working. I reported the problem to the front desk clerk as I was checking out. Hopefully, this will be corrected before I... More

I get there and neither one had it. Then they said they would try to give the micro for one room... More

Our room was spotless, no odors and crisp sheets. My wife insists on crisp sheets. We have stayed in many hotels. At times we woke up with back aches. Not here.... More

This Econolodge was a former Super eight hotel. Is the worst hotel I've ever stayed in in my life. The rate I paid for this hotel what's ridiculous it was below a one star hotel. The breakfast that they offered was basically toast and juice. it seemed very unclean and not worth my time or money.

There are holes in the ceiling mold in the bathroom it was the most horrible experience I've ever had in a hotel. The night front desk attendant didn't even speak coherent English. Went to the front desk this morning and was told that not all the rooms are like this we just got a crappy one.
