They've already abandoned the building on the south side of their parking lot, why not give up on the main building and let something new be built on this property. Worst room I've ever been in anywhere ever. Filthy in every regard. Old and in poor repair. And, it's less then a mile from Notre Dame. What an embarrassment for... More

Broken "secured" doors, door key didn't work, bathroom not clean,, soap left in shower, pubic hair in shower, staff incompetent. Worst hotel I've stayed. I will never stay there again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It wasn't worth it. I felt unsafe and the room was dirty.There was pubic hair in the shower/tub. Pretty sure they didn't wash the shower,which made me wonder if they... More

I have to admit - my first impression of this Econo Lodge was not great. First it is a motel not a hotel; all rooms have an exterior door that you park in front of. Half the property is abandoned and padlocked. The exterior is obviously not cared for. The room was musty but clean. However, everything worked and there... More

dirty, shower curtain rod broken. It was a real dump the room was dirty , lots of broken things in the room . The front desk was no help. I would not stay ever again in this motel but it was late so we did not want to look for another motel.

Over the past 3 years, I've traveled over 250 nights. The 2 night here were the worst. There was no Wi-fi. There was no breakfast either day (website says Free continental breakfast). The room smelt of cigarette smoke (website says Smoke free). My room phone could not even call the Front Desk. The few channels on the television that did... More

The hotel experience was bad from beginning to end. We arrived after midnight and the front desk staff person did not know where our room was located within the hotel. After some searching, we found it on the outside, facing the parking lot ... nowhere near where we directed. The room was filthy, with stains on the bed sheets and... More

I would have stayed here. From the outside it looked clean and well lit, the lobby was nice too. The lady who was behind the counter tried to get me a room , and said the computer was down. Then she went into the back room, and tried on another computer. No dice. Then she called "Dave". He didn't have... More

Stayed here in November (visiting from Canada) and didn't have the best experience (I left a review below). Well, I just got my credit card bill and the room was JUST charged this past month. How convenient that when the Canadian dollar dipped incredibly low (77 cents compared to 88 cents on the date of the transaction), my card is... More

Picture not hung on wall, all lights and clock unplugged, found that at night. Trash under bed, found that in the morning while checking for sock. Stain on sheet, found that in morning too! wish I could post pictures. Learned to inspect eveything before accepting the room. They did reduce cost of the room.
