I made a reservation using bringfido.com based on the reviews. I was traveling with two large dogs and had planned to reserve a room somewhere else, but later learned that the other hotel did not allow more than one dog per room. So, Econo Lodge was our choice based on the size and number of pets traveling with us.
The price was reasonable, and the extra pet-fee was also reasonable. I was initially concerned when I pulled up at 10pm to find construction scaffolding on the front of the building - I initially thought the hotel might have been closed for renovations! But, when I finally pulled closer, I could see a sign that said "Open during renovation". Unfortunately, the renovation took up any parking that might have been available in the front of the building, so we had to park in the rear of the building. We were worried about the security of our belongings so we brought all valuables inside with us. (This turned out to be a good thing because the next morning, another guest complained to the front desk that a tool box had been stolen out of the back of his pick up truck during the night!)
While the bed was clean and comfortable, the room itself was dated and dingy. The bathroom was dark and seriously in need of updating. However, the hotel met our needs for one night on the road. I likely would not book here again, but would instead look for somewhere else. But, in a pinch, as long as you don't have high expectations, this hotel will do.
