I'm not going to drag this out- I travel with choice hotels every week. This is by far the worse I've been to. I booked king non smoking room , went to check in and was told a 3rd party overbooked and it happens a lot she said. Needless to say we had to have a place to sleep but... More

We were traveling cross country and unfortunately I chose to start on Labor Day. The first thing out of the clerk’s mouth was. "Its labor Day weekend" then he quoted a price. I turned around to leave and he dropped the price 15 dollars. The price was still too high, but it was Labor Day, and we were near a... More

If you don't mind an old mattress and a sore back in the morning. The carpet was nasty. Needs a serious shampooing. The hot shower and water pressure was wonderful but I won't be returning to this hotel due to the great discomfort from the beds. You can feel the springs beneath the mattress. They also need to purchase new... More

Check in and check out easy and fast. Room was nice. Not bad for the price for the night we were there. Could be updated, but comfy and clean. Breakfast was small and crowded. But it was free so not gonna complain. Overall good stay. I would stay in another Econo Lodge.

The last night of our 2400 mile move across the country. This is a pet friendly hotel, and the front desk was very nice and accommodating. They serve breakfast and dinner for quest which was nice. There was enough parking for a moving van.

We only needed a place to sleep and grab a meal and The Econo Logde did fit the bill. However this is a pretty old property and the furnishing and carpet are in need of complete refurbishing. The tub had cigarette burns on the edge and really scratched floor on the bottom. Now the water pressure was awesome and never... More
