“Basic but Clean”
Reviewed September 28, 2009

Very basic hotel but the rooms are clean and beds are comfy. Wireless internet worked well. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Close to lots of shopping and restaurants. Basic continental breakfast -- but included everything we needed to get us on the road.

This Econolodge is less than impressive from the outside, but inside it's a wary, almost cozy place. OK, it's a basic motel, but the staff is very friendly and helpful and the rooms are more than adequate, with comfortable beds and clean, well-kept bathrooms. The breakfasts are the usual cold fare and the the breakfast room itself is quite a nice place to sit with your morning coffee. All in all, the value compared to its competitors is excellent.

Hotel looks older from the outside but don't let that fool you. Interior was very clean. Good mattresses and amenities. Lots of places to eat nearby. Pleasant staff and good value for the price. A nice place to stop after 13 hours on the road.

The Econo Lodge is your basic hotel room, with non of the frills. Our room was clean, but the rooms could use a update. It suited the purpose, as we just needed it to sleep for the night. on our way, home. They had a free breakfast in the morning, which is always good, and wireless internet. One of the better Econo Lodge hotels we have stayed in.

  • Liked — The room was clean
  • Disliked — The room was small , the tv was lousy, and the room was outdated.

The rooms are spotless and comfortable. I would say it's very good value for the amount of money you pay to be there. They have a selection of muffins, oatmeal and cereal for breakfast as well as a coin operated washer & dryer. Wireless internet also available. The ony drawback were the thin walls - you can hear buddy next door taking a shower.
