This is a great hidden little gem on a hill. The rooms were very clean and beds were comfortable. Recently remodeled. Quiet and off the beaten path. We stayed just for the night while traveling through. There is also a continental breakfast even though not advertised. Was pleasantly surprised.

No hot water after a long day of racing at muddy creek. Was promised a maintenance guy would come check it out and he was a no show so we had to take cold showers after waiting hours to see if it would get fixed. Discount was not honored like it was supposed to, arrived at 430 and was told... More

Normally I try to go a little fancier than Econo Lodge, but we were tired and Trip Advisor said good things. Room was very small and plain, but utterly clean in every way. Towels were thin but worked. Breakfast was simple but adequate. Eating area was pretty small, so people had to stand and wait for one of the three... More

1230 miles on my Harley in 2 days and was ready to cool down and get a hot shower and a good nights rest. Hotel is clean, quiet, and the staff pleasant and friendly. Bed was comfortable and I slept well. Breakfast is your standard with waffles and cereal. I would stay here again

First let me mention that your GPS has no idea where Econo Lodge is. If you enter the motel's address, it takes you past the property to a winding dirt road that eventually ends at Jericho Temple! Seriously! Do this instead. When you get off I-26 and turn north on Airport Parkway, look up in the sky and see the... More

The double room was small, not alot of room to maneuver, but it was clean and the bed was comfortable. Two things that would make a big difference..an extra blanket in the room (a thin one is on the bed) and a hook in the bathroom...absolutely no place to hang your towel or pj's. Breakfast is cereal or make your... More

This lovely motel perched on a hill featured a very clean well appointed room at a great rate. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful. It even had a fridge with a separate freezer compartment. The only downside was rather skimpy breakfast selections.
