Nice clean, quiet hotel

Very adequate hotel for the price. Super location. Room was very clean and great size. King bed was very comfortable. We're particular about the showers when we stay, and this one was great. Nice breakfast in the morning. Don't quite understand the $5 parking fee, but it was much cheaper than the other hotels. I would stay here again and recommend this place.

Good Weekend Getaway

Hotel is in the perfect location Downtown 2 blocks from 4th street where you have choices of restaurants and bars or catch the free trolley from there to the riverfront. Room size good but had no water pressure in shower so I had to stand close to wall to get wet, Breakfast just something to get you started.

do NOT book here

I had booked two nights at this hotel 2 months in advance to when I needed it. When I arrived, they said that they did not have my name. I showed them my orbtiz confirmation e mail, they did not care. THEY DId NOTHING to help and were VERY rude. I had to spend the next 3 hours looking for a room . every other hotel tried to help me. I booked here so that I could walk to the start line of the marathon, instead I stayed 30 mins away.

concert weekend

The room itself was great. Nice, clean king size bed. My complaint was the broken beer bottle on the walkway by my room, it laid there almost 24 hrs, even after I called to complain about it. Pizza on the stairs. The room was good for the price and location , now I know why. I walked back from downtown, wasn't completely comfortable but made it back. I don't think I would stay here again or recommend.

King Size Bed

I actually expected less from something named ECONO. Although it was $5 to park each day, they let us park for free for the check-out afternoon while we were about town. Satff was friendly and helpful. Made effort to have our 3 rooms close to each other. Appreciated the hair blower.
