I mean... it was as advertised. Room was clean. Pet friendly. Convienient to the highway. We did not do the breakfast there. I would stay here again. No complaints. Nothing else to add to the other reviews.

I stayed here for 3 nights, it was a wonderful experience for a very affordable price. The beds are the most comfortable hotel beds I have ever slept in, and the blankets are nice and warm, not those scratchy cheap ones you get at other hotels! Very friendly housekeeping and front desk staff. A $20 Uber ride to the airport.

This has got to be the best EconoLodge in their system. I have stayed here many times as it is the halfway point of a long trip. The rooms are updated, clean, and the staff is outstandingly friendly. The breakfast is fine compared to the exceptionally low rate to stay there. You even get a $10 coupon for free slot... More

Except for the night staff who was not welcoming (not smiling at all), everything else is good. The front desk staff in the morning was very helpful and welcoming, an opposite of the night staff. The a/c was very cold and right beside the study table so it really was not comfortable if you need to use the table.

Have stayed here multiple times when passing through on I-81 and have never been disappointed. Building and rooms are clean. Staff is friendly and price is right. In addition there are multiple restaurants in the area whether you want a local family restaurant or a national chain.
