Stayed 1 night. booked thru expedia on debit card. At check in I asked if they could charge my Amex instead of debit. They said they did. Well, both cards were charged for 1 nt stay. I contacted manager who said he would look into it and get back to me, never did. Called again, he said he thought he... More

This hotel was extremely dirty. Booked nonsmoking but room smelled strongly of cigarettes. Obvious black mold in the bathroom. Sheets were torn and would not stay on bed. People coming and going at all hours of the night were very loud. The air conditioner was so loud I had to put in earplugs to sleep. The first night, the housekeeping... More

It was Memorial Day weekend, lots of travelers filling motels, prices were rising as we watched. All the major chains were up to $150 - $200, but this Econolodge was well under $100, so we booked it on line. By 6 PM all 100 rooms were sold out. We were grateful to have beds. The motel faces the Interstate, but... More

We stayed at Econo Lodge May 2016. We found an advertisement in a brochure for this hotel that said new rooms, well needless to say the room we stayed in was not new, the sheets had crusted things on them, the blankets had burn holes as well as a spot that looked as if it had been caught on fire....

Stay here was in April 2016. My son discovered an active infestation of bed bugs in the room after seeing bugs scurrying across the pillows. Changed rooms and the second room appeared to be bug free. Overall conditions were poorly maintained.

The room was quite large with fridge, microwave, coffeemaker, etc. The TV was prehistoric and resolution terrible. The furniture old and damaged. There was an odor of sorts - maybe wet dog? Very few options for connecting a charger. The bathroom was OK - some rust stains on the tub, but the shower was excellent. Towels were nice and fluffy.... More

My wife and I stayed the night of April 15. Horrible stay. There looked like small blood drops on the one double bed sheets. The carpet looked stained and dirty. Only one wash towel. The tile in the bathroom was filthy. The wall outlets were so old and wore out it was hard to keep the phone charger in place.... More

I requested internet and non smoking as a must. Got to room and unpacked. By the time I tried the internet, we had to get another room because internet was not working in that spot. The owner needs to dish out more money for a higher speed or tell Choice Hotels that it does not have high speed internet. I... More

For staying a night on our trip from Michigan to Florida (and again on the way back) to avoid driving straight through this is a great place. The breakfast isn't amazing, but it will fill you up enough to get you on the road in the morning. It's location is convenient and the rooms are clean. That's the best you... More

The room was clean and had a working microwave and fridge in the room, quite for how close to the highway it is. Really great restaurants nearby for dinner. And a really friendly staff! There is a breakfast in the morning but I only had the coffee.
