When we arrived at the hotel to check in, the woman said that the room that I wanted (non-smoking) was not available and that no other rooms were available. I wanted to cancel my reservation, but she told me that seeing that I made the
reservation with Orbitz, I would lose my money. I was given a smoking room that reeked of stall cigarettes. I'm an asthmatic and this was a problem. I felt as if I was in a big ashtray. The woman also told us that we can leave the window open to air out the room. I couldn't believe she had the nerve to tell me this. The neighborhood where this hotel is located is in a ghetto. Why would I leave my window open when the surrounding area has a house right next to it with pedophiles and who knows what other criminals (I was told this by some locals that we meet at a restaurant/bar where we spent the good part of the evening in). In addition, to add insult to injury, the room was dirty. The only clean things were the sheets, towels and bathroom.
We stayed out most of the evening and returned around 3:00 am to find no parking. The person at the front desk told me with an attitude that I had to park on the street. Its bad enough that my room sucked and stank, now there was no parking. We slept only a couple of hours and to tell you the truth, we slept on the chairs. I was afraid that the bed had bugs. I couldn't wait to check out. With only a few hours sleep we checked out and went to another town and found a room that was more of what we are accustomed too.
The only positive thing that I can say about this hotel is that its right off the major highway.
This was my first and last time that I will use the internet to book my hotel. I usually stay at the Clarion or the Holiday Inn chains without any problems. I will never stay at another Econo Lodge.

Walking distance to downtown Syracuse. OK free breakfast. Nothing fancy. If you are on a budget and want central location, this hotel may be for you.
