Needs MANY improvements!

No one goes to an Econolodge expecting luxury! These hotels are generally cheap for a reason. However, there are still some common things that should take place. Firstly, we arrived to NO ONE at the front desk...waited 8-10 minutes before he arrived back (no idea where he was). Checked in and went to the room. There were NO towels, not a one! Went to call the front desk...NO PHONE in the room either! Front desk says he'll bring the towels, once he's done folding them, and that there is nothing he can do about the missing phone. He did bring the towels less than 15 minutes later. We attempted to log on the WI-FI with no luck. Called the front desk, he says they just got a new modem and it should be working to look for "guest net" and then enter email address for access. Try to find that network with out iPhones, & iPad with no luck and call again. I ask him to reset the modem, hoping it would kick start the WI-FI which he claimed he would do but the internet NEVER worked. He pretty much seems to just say whatever to get us off the phone. The room was okay clean and the condition isn't grand either. It's not filthy but I wouldn't walk around in the room without flip flops on, etc. Their breakfast is all carbohydrates but really for their rate! we can't complain about that!
