If you're old enough to have seen The Beatles first film, "A Hard Day's Night," you're old enough to know about Paul's Grandfather - who was frequently referred to as "cleeeeen." Look, staying at an older Econo Lodge, my goal was to spend as little as possible and pray I was safe, secure and "cleeeeen." This place is conveniently located,... More

Not sure if this was the hotel I stayed at (looks similar in pictures-but wrong address). Stayed here one night prior to heading south, nice rooms, with good working refrigerator and microwave, bed comfortable and nice working tv. Staff nice and helpful, continential breakfast included cereals, yogurt, juice and coffee. Great price for one night.

Do NOT stay here! Unless you are comfortable in dirty, unsafe conditions! Driving back to NY from Florida, Myself & my family stayed here at 3:00AM as we were too tired to drive. Rate was 49.99 online (56.57 with taxes). We just wanted to rest. The hotel is set back down off the main road which IMMEDIATELY worried me. It... More

This place, is SWEEEEEEET. You can do you, be yourself, no judgement or harrasment as long as you're respectful and discreet, whatever. It's like a nice little community of people that live here long-term, they have been cool to us so for, we've stayed for about 3 days. Great rates, hot morning breakfast (no meat though).

This place is very rundown. There's not one part of it that doesn't need renovating. I appreciate it's a budget hotel but there is a lot better available for the money. The room was dirty and in very poor state of repair. The bathroom was in a real state with stained bath and shower which had a lot of someone's... More

I called the hotel direct and was told handicap assessable room was not offered for coupon discount. The rate quoted was $52.99, when I contacted central reservations they offered a senior discount for the same room $47.99. Apparently you can't get the senior discount unless you book with central reservations. When we arrived at the room the assessable ramp was... More

I checked in too tired to look around, although I did notice the place was old and beat. The two persons manning the counter were very pleasant. Also, my linens were clean and freshly laundered. After I a meal I brought with me, I went to sleep. It wasn't til the morning that I saw the "one" cockroach (there's no... More
