Econo NOOOO

Returned back to our room after a family wedding. After changing out of tux and gown, my husband and I got ready for bed. Only hot water coming out of faucet in bathroom-awful for brushing teeth! Crawled into bed and found the remote doesn't work. Called desk only to be told to come down and get it myself because staff couldn't leave the desk and was the only one there. Upon checkout saw a sign that could be placed out in absence saying "the front desk employee is currently helping a guest. Please dial 101 for service."

You get what you pay for

This is quite possibly the worst hotel stay I have ever had. The property was very outdated and the room itself in a state of disrepair. There were stains the carpets, the artwork and the towels. The toilet seat was broken and the shower curtain had multiple tears. If you just need a bed, go for it. Just don't ask for extra pillows - they don't have any.

Good Comfort, Good Price

The friendly staff at this affordable hotel might lead you to believe that they have to be that way to make up for beds like rocks, and pilows like sheets... but, this is not the case. The beds are more than comfortable and the pillows are more something found in higher-priced accommodations. Just a couple low points hardly worth mentioning but the only reason i can't justify 5 stars: lack of vending choices, lines on tv screen, and some remodeling noise before 10 am. Overall though, what a great find!

Got the Job Done

At the last minute I was looking for an affordable, yet clean room. I was not planning on spending much time in the Hotel Room, so The Econo Lodge I stayed in got the job done. Rooms were clean, and the front desk was accommodating to my changing reservations. Overall I was satisfied with my stay in this Hotel.

Is that water dripping on my head?

A poor to middling experience. The staff was pleasant enough, but not aware they're in the hospitality industry. Water leaked into the shower from the upstairs shower and the whole ceiling desperately needed TLC. The clerk didn't seemed surprised or apologetic when I mentioned the problem. The doughnuts in the Continental Breakfast were past stale. On the up side the room was large and the hotel is close to the airport.

Avoid this motel.

There are bunch of other motels you can choose in its area. So choose others This one has by far the worst facilities and staffs in my lifetime experience. Rattles floors and staffs' attitude made me exhausted as I arrive.

Great Value

Hotel staff was really friendly. I printed out two Brewers tickets and they didn't charge me. I read some reviews online about the cleanliness of the rooms not being so good. I thought it was much better then what I read. The location was great from where I needed to work and right on a bus line. The beds were comfortable and the showers were nice. The breakfast was just donuts and carbs not so great. They had wi-fi but it was very slow. I gave it a higher rating because it was a low price so it had great value.
