I checked into this hotel after booking it sight unseen online. The grounds are okay and the entry is a little tattered. Upon check-in I was notified that the hotel was smoking and pot smoking friendly. If I hadn't prepared for this hotel I probably would have left and should have. I checked into my non-smoking room that smell like... More

We had a very comfortable suite-type room that was clean and in good repair with good beds. It has internal room entrances on two levels, with no elevator. Our first stay in an EconoLodge and we were impressed. Check-in was easy. Our room had newer carpeting with a bit older furnishings, but were very functional. Wifi worked well, and so... More

We loved this hotel. It was clean, up to date, the staff was great. We would definitely stay there again if ever in the area. The continental breakfast was very nice. The location was convenient to the interstate.

Room very musty smelling, a/c was on full blast, but still moist in room. The bathroom did not "dry" out after showers, probably culprit of the musty smell. Otherwise staff was nice and no other issues.

We're working the Choice summer promotion and called to see what was available. The Quality Inn had only one room left and the Sleep Inn seemed a bit high. So we booked the less expensive Econo Lodge. All of these motels are in the same location with other hotels. The Econo Lodge has its back to the street and is... More

Good water pressure and spacious room, but heavy curtains covered a/c and we tried opening curtains but then street lights too bright. Beds not comfortable. Breakfast not really up to par with similarly priced hotels. Area seemed a little sketchy but parking lot was well lighted. Multiple cigarette burn stains in bathroom although we had a no smoking room- it... More

The motel is showing it's age, think retro, but the room and bedding were clean. The AC/Heat units are new. Plenty of hot water in the morning. Breakfast was good. The staff was helpful and friendly. Dogs are welcome.

I came here to visit my dear old friends. One friend couldn't visit me until after 11pm. The OwnerManager stopped my friend at the front desk. My friend was dressed in business casual attire, abstemious, clear headed and polite. The OwnerManager called my room and yelled that he would charge me double if my friend stayed longer than one hour.... More

This room was booked on the internet so I couldn't see where it was located or what it looked like. The young receptionist was very polite and easy to work with. The place had a smell to it, the middle eastern smell is the best way to describe it. They do not have an elevator. I had a lot of... More

The room was nice and clean. The mattress was very comfortable. The desk clerk was smiling and professional. The lobby is nice and the complimentary breakfast is decent. Our room was warm on this January night and quiet. On the negative side, the hall carpet is shabby and the first floor entrance we walked through to get to our second... More
