After reading the reviews of this motel on TripAdvisor, I'd written it off. We booked ourselves into the Motel 6 -- it was shocking (muddy dirt parking lot, cemented-in swimming pool, creepy bedspreads) -- so decided to keep on looking. Looked at an $89 room at the Comfort Inn, which was nicely appointed and clean but with stairs only, no elevator. Then we thought, what the heck, we'll look at the Econolodge next door before deciding, despite the bad reviews. Boy, were we glad we did. Josh, the night desk clerk, was very cordial, pleasant, welcoming and hospitable. He did a great job. He showed us exactly the type of room we were looking for -- quiet, two beds, third floor, overlooking the quiet back hillside away from the highway -- all for only $70/night. And we were able to get to it with the motel's elevator! We took it. The room was beautifully appointed for a budget motel, with rich, warm earth tones and luxurious-looking fabrics. The beds were very clean and comfortable. The bathtub and shower curtain were more like what you'd find at the $120/night Holiday Inn Express down the road. The lighting was perfect. There was a TV, fridge, microwave, large desk with a nice desk chair and a big reclining leather easy chair for watching TV (we were too tired to do so). The AC ran cold and quiet. The only negative was the room's toilet plumbing made a bit of a low "honking" sound after the flush. We were very pleased with this hotel, which Josh told us had been completely remodeled top to bottom earlier this year.
