The wireless internet here is horrible. After complaining so many times about how often it disconnects and how incredibly slow the wireless is at econolodge and only getting the staff to "reset the modem", I gave up. My fiance made me a wireless extender hoping to fix the problem. This did not help. Fact is, this internet is just low bandwidth, probably a cheap plan with whatever carrier they are with.
On the plus side, which is why I am giving an average rating, the kitchenette is nice. I liked being in a room with a kitchen. The stove and oven works great. The disposal works great. Also, the shower was nice. I did not have spurts of extremely hot and cold water as I have had with other hotels these past few months. But, the bed was terribly uncomfortable. I had to make a mattress pillow out of blankets to lay on top of the mattress.
I would not return to this place. I can not deal with cheap, unreliable wireless internet. Half of the time I had to use the Days Inn wireless which neighbors this motel.

I want to thank you for your comment. You certainly did not catch us at our best. Guest comfort is most concern to us. The hotel team committed to making every possible effort to provide perfect wireless connection. However, we have recently done major changes to our network to earn our guests satisfaction. Your review will be used to reconsider improvements needed and a total network inspection was done.

1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2012

I had reserved via Choicehotels.com expecting a decent place. After driving all day and checking in to a supposedly "non-smoking" room, I was staggered by the bad smell that hit me when I opened the door. Stale cigarette smell in carpet and linens was really bad. It was so bad it stayed on my clothes for hours.
I packed up my granddaughter and asked for a refund, after 6 days they still haven't refunded me yet :(

If you are reading this and are looking for a room, go to the Quality Inn in Troy.

Room Tip: Go somewhere else
