This is a typical Econo Lodge. It is basically clean, but the place is thread bare. The elevator has a tiny door -- hard to get in and out. Our room door had obscenities carved in it -- a nice touch. The room itself was ok -- but marginally worth the 50$ price. The absolute worst is the rip off of $1 that they charge on check in for a safe: they tell you that if you do not use the safe, you get the 1$ back on check out. Well, on check out, the clerk gave us such a hard time, claiming that we did not pay the safe fee, and telling us this is for our security. Finally he did give us the $1.06 back (the safe fee plus tax), but then he would not say a further word -- knowing that he had some cheap-skates on his hands. The truth is that Econo Lodge makes a mint off this fee. The statement that this is a convenience for those who want it is no different from the TV or the toilet -- why don't they charge for those items? I have had repeated problems with Econo Lodge and Days Inn in collecting the 1$ rip off -- and I think this is the last time I am going to bother. By the way, how do they get off charging state tax for this 'service'?

There is a persistent aroma of sea food from the Japanese restaurant next door.

Great for the price. Rooms are spacious and clean. Close to the highway but not noisy. No lobby to speak of and few extras, but solid with the basics. For a clean bed and a warm shower at a low price, you'd be hard pressed to do better.
