Run Down - we thought this was place was abandoned

We pulled in to the Econo Lodge and we immediately thought this place was abandoned as there was one older vehicle in the huge parking lot. I went in to the lobby and was told that indeed they were open for business. We reluctantly went to our room and it was a disaster- strong smell of stale smoke, hair in the sink, my husband showered quickly and the drain was plugged in the shower. Holes in the walls. I will NEVER rebook at this establishment. I would have demanded my money back if I booked directly....a sad ending to our summer vacation.

a room for the night

Just looking for a clean nice room for the night. Motel was not clean, surfaces inside room and exterior door were scratched up, wallpaper peeling off walls, chair in the room had a huge liquid stain in the center, 1 snack machine almost empty, no soda machine (I even asked at the front desk and they said no it had just been taken away). I could go on and on. Will sum it up by saying I won't stay there again and absolutely do NOT recommend it.

Will never stay at another Econolodge

The place was very run down, not well lighted (for a reason), and the continental breakfast was poor. The web site said I would have a coffee maker in my room. When I mentioned it while I was checking in she said there was not. So she pulled a full size one out from under her desk and had someone else put some coffee grounds in a plastic cup for me . ( I had to stop at a store and buy coffe cups, because the only cups that were in the room were plastic.) To be fair--the staff tried to be helpful, but it was just sad.

Great deal

Friendly desk people, very low price, older motel but clean, ok bed pillow and linens. Not close to the other motels so may not get as much business, but the price is great! Be sure to call and ask, you can even get a better deal on the phone.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

Bearded Dog just short ways north before main street on the west side of the road. Outstanding food, or the Alpine Tavern that is next to the Bearded Dog for a lower price but also great meal.

Horrible

The town is nice, however this hotel was horrible. Got there, the parking lot is not even plowed (and theres a lot of snow there). No pool because the roof caved in on it, the ice machine was broken, the phone didn't work and the toilet didn't flush right. The only positive thing I can say is that the room was clean. Cheap so I guess you get what you pay for.

basic overnight stay

Although the building is dated, the room and bathroom were clean. Our king bed was comfortable. What would have made it better would to have an in room coffee maker and fridge, and maybe wireless internet in the room. I thought it was a nice place for the basic shower and sleep needs.

Good solid overnight room

For a two star motel, I found the room and bed to be comfortable. Although the room did not smell of smoke, the hallways did. This was supposed to be an completely non-smoking facility.

Disgusting beyond believe!!!

Horrible experience....the beds had been slept in, towels were dirty, the bathroom was filthy, the base of bed was stained with what appeared to be urine, dresser drawer broke, dust covered fixtures and a smell that was beyond belief. The pool was green and the filters appeared to not be working.We left and we were able to book the last room at another hotel. We spent money and were unable to stay because of the above!!! The rating should be negative 10!!!!

Exceptionally a wonderful value

I was in the Gaylord area for a golf weekend package and decided to come up a day early and explore the surroundings. The Econo-Lodge proved to be an excellent location and a tremendous value and I would highly recommend this particular location.
