We stayed at the Econo Lodge on a Saturday night on fairly short notice. I felt the price I paid was expensive for what I got, which was a very basic room with basic amenities. The rate may have been high due to the day of the week and given that most hotels in the area were sold out at the time.
The room was generally clean but in need of updating. It was very damp in the room and the room had a funny air-deodorizer smell to it, which we got used to after a while. The sheets were thin and had a few old stains on them, but were otherwise clean. The bed was somewhat comfortable. There was a large selection of cable TV channels.
The bath towels were very small and were also very thin and not soft. The bathroom was decent sized and had a generous counter-top for spreading out your things. The water pressure was good and the shower head nice. The shower curtain was short and a little difficult to keep in the tub. The bathroom had a switch-controlled overhead fan, which you don't see too often, but it did a terrible job at removing the humidity after a shower. It took 15 minutes for the mirror to de-fog after opening the bathroom door.
There was free wireless internet, but I did not make use of this to try it out. I also didn't sample the free breakfast, but I did see when I checked-in that the breakfast area was very small -- only about 3 small tables -- so we choose to get our breakfast off-site. The check-in process went smoothly and the reception was generally friendly.
The walls were thin and we were woken up in the early morning by guests in the room above and also out in the hallway moving about. In general, it was a decent stay and if I needed a room in the area again I would return if I could get a cheaper rate -- but I will probably try staying someplace else first.
