I must confess that the idea of staying in an Econo Lodge was met with lukewarm interest. However, the reviews of this place were such an encouragement and the price was so reasonable, we went for it. I couldn't say better things about this hotel. While it is tired, it is kept clean and neat with meticulous care and attention... More

Spent month of November traveling back and forth from north Carolina for a family hospice situation. Staff could not have been more attentive.my room was always great and ready even when I arrived at two or five am. Thanks so much for your kind understanding.

Spent Thanksgiving weekend visiting family. The customer service at this hotel was excellent - staff was attentive and accommodating! I brought my 85 year old mom and staff greeted her with warm and caring attitudes. The housekeeping staff was great too - hotel was very clean. Would absolutely recommend staying here.

I do not stay at Econo Lodges ......................... except this one. I average 40+ Choice Hotel stays a year, and I enjoy this hotel as much or more than any of them. It is extremely unique. Here's one hint: You are given a free complimentary rubber duck in your room. This hotel is clean, quiet, and friendly. A nice restaurant... More

I came here to attend a conference that was being held downtown. I came a few days early so I could spend some time catching up on my writing, as that is what I do professionally. The hotel staff couldn't have been any more accommodating and friendly. I was able to get so much work done in my room during... More

Accessible to local restaurants & shopping, the facility was clean & comfortable. Only lacking a pool. Included breakfast which is a nice convenience. They met all our expectations & handicapped person requests.

I was blown away. The lobby was spit-spot clean and welcoming. The folks behind the desk were friendly, efficient an helpful. The room was immaculate, spacious and comfortable. Convenient access to the highway. I found it to be quiet at night. Good wifi.

Was here a couple days while my truck was getting worked on and all I can say is that it's been a relaxing time here. The staff is professional and helpful. Will be back again ! There are a couple restaurants within walking distance also.
