Recent guest reviews

There were other guests in the building stomping around so loudly above us that it was shaking the walls in our room. We tried repeatedly to ask a couple other rooms to hold it down and also complained to the on site manager, who did nothing. The noise did not stop until after 4 AM. There were also people cussing and shouting in the lot outside our room. We had to drive 8 hours at 7 AM the next day on basically no sleep. When I complained to the manager the next morning, he shrugged and told me to fill out a comment card and that he "just worked there and didn't have any control over the other guests". Also we found someone's medication on the floor upon entering our room and certain things in the room, like the toilet paper holder, were literally pulling out of the wall. Stay at an AirBnb, they're 100x nicer and the same price or cheaper than this.

Room was full of holes carpet nasty. Front desk told me couldn’t have any more coffee. While I was a guest.

I am upset that I was charged twice for this room. Even though I booked it on Orbitz the proprietor charged why card , too. Although he charged me a cheaper price, non the less, I was billed by both Orbitz and Econolodge. I will be working with Orbitz to rectify this.

Room was very nice and comfortable, but I had no sleep because of some disruptions from the room above. The noise was unbearable!!. People need to be more considerate of others late at night. Make sure you take a hair dryer, because there was not one in the room. It was a great stay in spite of the noisy guests up above.
