You won't have an Internet cable so if you do gaming or streaming please this hotel isn't a good option. However, they have a good breakfast, nice and great house keeping, the front desk are very respectful and friendly. Please NOTE that during winter the air conditioning will be automatically turned on around 3:00AM and 5:00AM which will freeze you....

We recently spent 2 weekends, 2 nights each, at the EconoLodge Arena. We highly recommend it. Both weekends the check-in was very easy and our room was clean and an comfortable size. The breakfast was very good with juices, yogurt, cereal, donuts, bagels, toast, and make your own belgian waffles. Will definitely stay there again.
