We chose this hotel partly because it was pet friendly. Sadly they charge $50 per pet, while most others charge just 10 or 20 dollars. We were reserved and could not cancel. The room was clean. The furniture was a bit worn but that did not matter. Beds were very firm. AC worked well. Room had a jet tub, but... More

This is not the place to stay. We booked back in January with the understanding it was being remodel. Not true. The front cabins look amazing and new, however those stay booked and that's the reason why. The beginning of check in should of been the warning. The male employee is very unpleasant, not informative and is bothered every moment... More

Had to wait till 3:30th to check in. Upon arriving to our room the beds didn't have any blankets. Called the front desk to request 3 blankets, housekeeping looked everywhere in the room for the "missing" blankets, gave us 2 then left. I contacted the front desk once more, requesting the third blanket, housekeeping never showed. Called the front desk... More

My 12 month old grandson was hospitalized. Had to call and cancel reservations. I called over 48 hours ahead of time. Not good enough. Was told there was a 3 day cancellation policy. We were never told this. Employees were extremely RUDE over the phone and said we would still be charged over $200 on our credit card. We will... More

I booked this lodge through Priceline based on the pictures on the website. And here was the deception. They display the pictures of only the first row of lodges, which look very nice but the one we got was in the second row and those are crappy ones. I have posted picture of what is on the website and what... More

This was not a positive experience. 1. The beds were NOT queen size as advertised and booked, but double beds. The mattresses were worn and hard, and I could feel the springs through the linens. Not comfortable. 2. The room was dirty and worn. Housekeeping did a decent job, but is was obvious that no thorough cleaning had been done... More

We stayed in the hotel part of Econo Lodge. There was some old playground equipment on the side of the building where are room was. Some of it was taken apart and had some rusty nails sticking out of it. I had to tell my 7 year old son not to play over there due to being dangerous. There was... More
