“not so great place”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2008

We had checked in the first room had a real moldy smell to it. We were able to change rooms with no problem but the bathroom had hair in the shower that was not mine!! i should have checked earlier it was too late in the stay and needed to get back on the road again.The rooms themselves were in ok shape but in need of a face lift the 70s decor is i bit past prime. having wireless internet was a great plus.

My family and I have stayed at this hotel many times and have always had a clean room. The kids love the pool and hottub. There is lots of room to sit around the pool and watch the kids also. The staff has always been very courtious and polite. There is also a continental breakfast in the morning and there is also a resturant and lounge in the building. We will be staying here again for sure.

  • Liked — Very clean and good size rooms
  • Disliked — Not enough suites

i recently stayed at the Econo Lodge, reluctantly of course because of the review that I had read. When we got there the hotel staff was excellent. Very kind and courtious. I asked them about room #245 and stated that I did not want that room as i had heard bad things about it. Would you believe it, but there isn't a room #245. I had a very good experience there, and will definately be staying again soon. The kids loved the full size swimming pool and hot tub. The room was so clean you could eat off the floor. All in all, I have to say it was an excellent experience. I highly recommend it.

  • Liked — Friendly Staff
  • Disliked — nothing
  • Tips/Secrets — call hotel directly for reservation, very helpful staff
