OMG...this hotel is beyond disgusting....My family and I chose to stay as they were the only hotel in the area that would let us check in after 7am and stay until the next day. My family and I were on the way to Disney from NY and were beyond tired. The rooms wrecked of mold, mildew and stale smoke. The...

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...

I try to stay at Choice hotels whenever I can. I know that the Econo Lodge motels are low on the food chain, but I never expected such a terrible property. The carpet wasn't vacuumed and the tile was sticky. When I found cigarette ashes on the toilet, I went in search of a housekeeper. Her cart was two doors...

My friend and I checked into this hotel early hours of the morning following a long drive from Florida. The woman on the reception was hostile, abrupt and unwelcoming. We were unhappy to find the room extremely hot and smelling like urine. We put the air conditioning on which helped a little but it was not a nice welcome to...

Late at night, burned out from construction traffic, eyes blurring and back aching...and I still wish I had driven farther to avoid this place. The room was noisy, even as far as it was from the highway. There are apparently some folks who live in some of these rooms on a more permanent basis. The only parking near my room...

Hotel is down a long drive between another hotel and a filling station. It has lots of parking, but the pavement is falling apart. It is very large with at least three building with two floors each with exterior doors. The front building includes the registration desk, a meeting room and a very large breakfast area. Check in was easy....

I checked tripadvisor before booking this hotel and found a ton of poor reviews. However, the price was right and there were some good reviews, so we took a chance. We needed a hotel off Rt 95 to sleep on our way south. We checked in at 12:30 am. The clerk was very friendly and helpful. Thought the hotel is...

This was our last night on the road and we were looking for an inexpensive room close to I-95 (that would also allow a pet). The staff was friendly, the bedroom area was worn but clean, and the bed was comfortable. Paint was peeling off the walls in the bathroom and the toilet had not been cleaned in quite some...
