Easy access to hotel from interstate; easier than the website directions are, I suspect that there has been a center median removed from the street since the website directions to the hotel were posted. Need to update directions. Had two rooms booked. Noticed an initial foul odor upon entering each of the rooms. Suspect it to be coming from the... More

The staff is very friendly & professional. If there is a problem, it is addressed. The rooms are very clean, & don't have any odors. The only problem Is if you are making a right turn into the lot, or if you are making a left turn out of the lot. There are restaurants within waling distance. Other chain restaurants... More

Stayed here for a concert at the Moheagan Sun. The location was centrally located to major retailers. The room was inexpensive and very clean. The bed was comfortable. The shower pressure was amazing. Would definitely stay here again.

We were camping an hour away, and learned that thunderstorms were due the next morning when we had planned to pack up to come home. Experience has taught us it is miserable to pack up tent, etc etc etc in the pouring rain. So, we packed up in the evening, enjoyed a last camp fire, and left the campground at... More

We always stay here when we travel back and forth from Pittsburgh to Boston. I would recommend this hotel if you need a nice overnight clean place to stay....and also if you... More

Such a pleasant group of people took extra care to make sure we were comfortable! This is our new place in the area for our annual trip to camp. Met our needs for an accessible room and asked if we needed help bringing belongings to the room.

This hotel was an excellent value. Check-in was friendly. The room was spacious, clean and very nice. We had a room at the back and there was noise from the highway although we still slept well. I would ask for a room at the front the next time. The bed and pillows were very comfortable. Good tv and excellent wifi.... More

Stayed here on the way to NC from NY. Needed a quick place to stay for the night and to escape some storms. Room was simple but cleanly, and the staff was nice. Econo lodge is great because it offers a pet friendly environment, and even gave my cat a toy to play with. I would stay here again especially... More

Great place to stay, as it was right off the highway. Dunkin Donuts right across the street. The staff were very friendly, our room was clean, the bed was comfortable and the AC worked well. They had a good selection for the continental breakfast.
