Stayed here with my baby and my husband for one night. Basically spent the night, and checked out at 7 am. The room was on the first floor, easy access to the car. However, someone parked a large vehicle halfway in the spot right in front of our room. They were gone by morning, but by then we were checking out already. The bed in the room was nice, clean and comfortable, and the towels were clean. However, the carpet had clearly not been vacuumed in a while as there were crumbs and dirt. The biggest disappointment was the bathroom. The shower head was disgusting (similar to the photo of one someone else posted here in their review), the walls in the shower were covered in something slimy, clearly hadn’t been cleaned in who knows how long. The most disgusting though were the pee stains on the floor around the toilet (I did not notice this until morning, otherwise I’d have asked for another room). We were exhausted from an 11 hour drive, and had to get the baby settled for bed. I feel like if that was not the case, I would have noticed all these things sooner and asked for a different room. Furthermore, I wish I had read the reviews ahead of time and avoided the place all together. Based on the bed and furniture, maybe they are trying to upgrade slowly, but looking more modern isn’t going to matter when it’s not cleaned properly. Spend an extra $10 and stay somewhere cleaner!

My fiance & I stayed here one night to attend a concert. It's a small hotel, right off of the interstate. It's next to a Mapco & across the street from the City Cafe. Those are about the only good points. The girl who checked me in was not very pleasant and proceeded to ask in a rude & harsh way..."How many people are staying in the room?" (two, just like I stated in my reservation) "Do you have any pets with you?" "And just so you know, there are absolutely NO visitors allowed." First of all, I am a Choice Platinum member, not some vagrant off the street. Second, I am a paying customer...have a little respect. She failed to inform me of the free breakfast or what time it's served, checkout time, wifi password or anything. :/ The room was decorated in typical Econo Lodge style...which is fine. It seemed to be cleaned okay & there were enough pillows. I did notice 3-4 burn holes in the bedspread, but we were in a smoking room, so...I guess that's normal? There was no inside safety lock on the door, which I didn't like. And the door and walls are very thin, you can hear everything, including lots of traffic at the busy intersection, anyone walking past, talking etc. The television was intermittent...it would be fine for a while and then lose signal every minute or two....very frustrating. We discovered we couldn't use our coffee maker because the part you put the coffee in was missing. The mattress is covered in a plastic type cover that crinkles & crunches everytime you move, and it makes you sweat. But the most disturbing thing was the four different times we saw a roach crawling on the wall! NASTY! We wouldn't stay here again.

I spent one night here on a road trip from Florida to Ohio. The facility is on a fairly busy street. It is clean and well-maintained. I asked for a quiet room, and the man at the desk took his time selecting a room for me to attempt to give me what I asked for. The room was clean, the bed was very comfortable. It's an Econolodge so don't expect the Ritz, but it served its purpose as a convenient, clean, comfortable room for one night. The downside? The "quiet" room was disturbed by other guests, a group of men who chose to gather, smoke cigarettes, drink, and whoop it up right outside my room after I went to bed. Yes, I called the front desk, and someone must've come out and spoken to them because they did disperse. In the morning there was an empty whiskey bottle, cigarette packs, and butts in the landscaping right outside my room. Why do people need to be like this? A hotel/motel is for sleeping, not for partying. Take it somewhere else! I don't blame the Econolodge staff at all for the unacceptable behavior of these "guests." Breakfast is very basic: Cereal, milk, bagels/cream cheese/jelly, bread for toast, mini-muffins, coffee and juice. It was plenty for me to put something in my stomach and get back on the road. Except for the presence of annoying, noisy fellow guests, this Econolodge was a good place to stop for a night's sleep.

I knew this wasn't the Hilton but I really did not realize places still offered smoking rooms. No cars in parking lot but were told they were booked and could not switch rooms. We used to be smokers but the stench of the room was too much to handle. We felt absolutely disgusting the entire time of staying here. We cleaned the bathroom and any areas we would be touching. There were brown, curly hairs in the corners of the bathroom. Luckily we brought our own sheets to cover the beds and our own blankets and pillows. We also wore shoes the entire time in the room. I understand this is more of a pull off the exit and sleep type of place, but I would rather sleep in my car. We tried leaving the door open, air fresheners and a diffuser. Nothing helped with the smell. And we heard sirens all night and even witnessed a police chase. Doesn't seem to be a very safe area either. We couldn't wait to leave here and wash everything that came into contact with this room.
