The room itself was big. But the remodeling was inconsistent and it smelled of mildew. I think in this day and age hotels and motels should have central air and not window units. It reminded me of church camp back in the early 80s. When I took a shower the water went from hot to cold to burning hot because... More

My room at Economic Lodge was small and not very exciting, but it was clean and neat. It was frustrating not having an iron or hair dryer in the room, but it did have a microwave and little fridge. I guess that's why it's "Econo" Lodge!

The staff was great. The room was not quite finished but the desk clerk gave me keys so when I came back later I could just go to my room. The hotel was easy to find and the room was very clean. The A/C works very well.

I had made a reservation with the request for an upstairs room if there is an elevator. There was no elevator but they gave me any upstairs room anyway. No reason given. I tried to connect to internet while checking in. I could tell that the router or modem or both needed to be reset. I told the lday how... More

After reading the previous reviews, I still decided to stay here, and I was pleasantly impressed. Although they are in the middle renovations, I still don't have a complaint. Front Desk was very friendly, and helpful. My husband and I own our trucking company and are in a different hotel almost every night, and this hotel was far better than... More

I don't mind staying in an older hotel as long as it is clean. My hotel room was about as dirty as it gets. The bed was terrible, hard and lumpy. Bathroom was dirty and stained. Floor looked and felt like it hadn't been cleaned in years, I wouldn't even take my shoes off until I got in bed.
