We stayed in the Econo Lodge overnight when we were traveling to AL to pick up our motorhome. It was the night of the Super Bowl in 2013. We were not planning to stay in a hotel but we were arriving late and wanted to watch the Super Bowl. We used a coupon from a travel guide so the price was very reasonable. We were traveling with a cat so there was a $20 extra charge.
The room was very clean and had been recently renovated. It had a microwave and small fridge. The TV was a new LCD and decent size. The beds were very comfortable and I took the information on the mattress because I slept so well. The staff were very friendly. The free continental breakfast the next day was one of the best we have had in a hotel of this level. All in all we were happy with our stay.
There were two negatives, first the TV signal was very snowy. We complained and then went out to dinner and to watch the Super Bowl. When we got back later at night the picture was better but not HD even though the TV was capable of displaying HD. The next morning it was still better.
Second I thought that $20 was a little high for a pet charge. We were happy that they did take pets.
